    Picked up this little dude the other night at a Wal-Greens!

    He's a lot of fun, looks great and Transformation is really simple. But, you can see his face if you turn the vehicle mode around :( 

    Oh well, minor problem if you're a stickler for scale in the movie line :)

    Can't wait to get this little dude. I can't tell in the pics, but does he have elbow articulation? Looks like it, I hope he does. I like the deluxe version, but for display purposes, he looks silly next to all of the other figures which is why I really want the legends one.

    Thanks for the pics and review man :)

    Well you sold me on it.. I'm definitely gonna need a legends wheelie!

    I definitely think it's cooler than the deluxe version.. makes more sense to me anyway.. :)

    You're welcome :) 

    and yeah, he has elbow articulation but no shoulder articulation. So he can't raise his hands in the air like he don't care.

    Too bad about the shoulder articulation but I would rather elbows anyway. Looks rad, hopefully he will show up in Canada soon.

    Sorry man, I don't own any HA figures. But from I've seen on store shelves, Wheelie is slightly taller I think :)

    picked this little guy up, pretty cool, mine had a screw that wasnt put in right though, actually a rivet, so his hood/foot wont stay on, had to put in a small screw i had laying around, but kinda messed it up. The QC on some of the recent stuff has really been horrible..

    Picked him up today and he is great. Good detailing on the face, and nice looking compared to most ROTF Legends. I initially thought I was going to display him in bot mode, but the Truck mode looks incredible IMO and fits in nicely with the rest of the basic line (Still a little big, but close enough for me). Great figure.

    I picked up this guy yesterday while Toy shopping and I passed up Armorhide for him.

    [​IMG]

    at first glance he's pretty cool, compared with the deluxe it's (to me) A bit more movie accurate

    [​IMG]

    from a rear view you can see he has a pickup bed upper back. I found that pretty appealing to my eyes

    [​IMG]

    beside a Deluxe figure he's still not in scale but not ridiculously out of scale...
    I'd say with a Human alliance figure he should be in scale

    [​IMG]

    vehicle mode pretty cool but not much going on
    [​IMG]
    when you look at him from the rear he still stares at you
    [​IMG]

    Roller mode

    well thanks for reading this review. please comment or if you guys/gals have any questions don't hesitate to ask :) .

    Roller mode is WIN!
    Really like this legend version, and IMO his face/eyes can pass for rear facing lights.

    I think he is in Scale with Ultimate Bumblebee moreso than the Human Alliance series.

    Really this is about as close in scale as you can get. Real scale would be about the size of an M&M.

    Bought on sight. Looks so much better than the shelf-warming Deluxe.
