    .....Damnit, I'll have to get this after all.

    So how are you going to repaint it? G1, or movie accurate?

    Looks like they dropped a few decos. His teeth aren't painted and his hood is no longer black. Grill-like detailing on the back fender is unpainted, but that's not a surprise. His crotch is no longer the same colour as his silver parts for some reason.

    Impressive toy design. The big tubby torso reminds me of Animated Bulkhead.

    nice pics there :thumbs2: 

    Now that you have this in hand, what do you think of all the speculation that this and Mudflap may form some sort of symmetrical combiner(a-la Safeguard, based on Skid's enlarged left arm and Mudflap's right).

    I highly doubt it. Usually from what I've seen, hasbro leaves obnoxious connectors exposed or hidden for combiners, looking over this, if they somehow DO combine, it will be a very messy looking gestalt.

    I very much doubt he and Mudflap would combine. I agree with F_R, it would look like a mess if tehy did.

    As for the stand alone figure, I hope these aren't the final colours (I mean the hood not being black), as I will have to paint the hood, then. Very nice looking figure otherwise. I love the transformation scheme and the chest just sliding and re-arranging like that looks really nice. The head is still uggos but it works. We need more intentionally fugly TFs, they often have some of the most interesting designs.

    I think they tried to give him a look (and maybe personality) of a troll or mythical RPG type creature, he seems to be hunched over, have a troll like face and big arms/small legs, and a swamp green.

    I realize that this guy is supposed to look sort of pathetic and ugly and cute in a muppety-gremlin way... I recognize that there's some nice toy engineering in this and the alt-mode looks great.

    But I really despise this. It looks like the creepy inbred TF that never should have been born!! Kill it! Kill it with fire!!

    The transformation process is quite genious by the way. While in the "opened" mode (shot of it in there) half of the figure needs to spin 180 degrees. The way the doors flip around the bottom legs is awesome also. Only major problem I see is the lack of a better balancing system. Seems you can't really pose this guy without him falling down (the close up shots I am actually holding him up by a foot or something) His head's on a ball joint also, but the front fender is so close up against the back of his neck, you can't point his head anywhere near straight or looking up.

    The body is kinda cool, looking at these pics. Still a goofy head, but it's hilarious

    He looks great. Sad they didn't paint his buck teeth but I can do that myself.
    Will definitely be picking him and his bro up.
