    Got him from BBTS today. I'm too lazy to take pictures right now, but if you guys want some I'll take some tomorrow afternoon.


    The alt mode is pretty nice. Everything locks into place really well and rolls pretty nicely despite the limbs hanging off the bottom.


    Transformation is pretty easy and fun. Robot mode is much more screen accurate than previous Ratchet toys. He has a lot of articulation, but his head can barely move.

    The only problem I have with him is his Mech Alive gimmick. It doesn't really work that well. You're supposed to put the gray piece hanging off the back of the gun into his right arm and two gray pieces rise up next to it. It sounds cool, but the gun barely stays in place. I've only been able to get it to stay in place two times. All the other times I tried, the gun popped off of his arm. A couple of times it shot off his arm and hit me in the face. So I put the black piece that attaches to the roof of the alt mode in that space on the arm and it fits much better, and I think it looks a little cooler like that.

    But, yeah, it's a good toy.

    Here's one random picture of him.

    Here's my alternate way of attaching the gun. I've tried to do it the way it says in the instructions, but it just will not stay on.

    Here he is with deluxe Bumblebee. He's kinda small.

    Thanks for the review and the pics!

    Would it be possible to get a comparison shot with the voyager Prime mould?

    Sweet, thanks!
    I was mostly curious about the bo m odes anyway :) 

    Here's hoping deluxe Ironhide is somewhere inbetween them, sizewise.

    Don't have him, but my only gripe with the figure from the pics and reviews are his height- if he were just an inch or two taller, he'd be in great scale, but as it is he is the same height as Bee, which doesn't work. Maybe a caster would be willing to try and upscale him?

    Hmmm...

    Robot mode looks nice and really is more accurate. I think ROTF Lockdown will be keeping the gun, though.

    I like this thing alot, but I prefer the Voyager just for its size in relation to leader prime.
