Great Pics, I can't wait to get this guy.
I like this guy, I love big planes tf's.
I don't like it as it is. The head isn't doing it for me. It doesn't match the movie feel of this mold IMO. The legs/feet aren't great either. However, I haven't seen it in person yet, so I'll reserve my final judgement til then. Also, with a bit of work, and a new head, I see me turning him into Silverbolt for a movie style superion, just because he seems to have plenty of room for connection points on his upperbody, and the legs/feet seem pretty simple to add connection points to as well. Again, I'll have to see it in person to make any final judgement.
i have him and really like him and his height,,,and ya he has goofy pontoon feet, but its not human..its a robot soooo i think odd feet work.
Can we see a picture of him compared to cybertron jetfire?
i can only compare him to mixmaster or human alliance bumblebee
This bot has been growing on me since the first time I saw him. I may have to pick him up.
I think he NEEDS the pontoon feet or he would topple over due to that massive backpack.
I dunno, I found this guy yesterday, and he's only so-so in my opinion. The backpack is obviously the most glaring issue, but he also seems kinda simplistic. He could have used a few more points of articulation.... thigh swivels, ankle swivels, or at least a ball-jointed head (since he seems to look best bending forward a bit... but this causes his head to always be looking at the ground).
I love the red arms and claw hands, though. And the plane mode is nice. I find myself hoping for an "Octane/Tankor" Decepticon repaint (maybe with the teensy Prime repainted as a 'Con truck like Motormaster or Onslaught).
The mini-Prime is cute, but doesn't fit so smoothly into the bay on mine.
he is on my get list, its a shame, they dropped the space shuttle gun but he is still cool
I thought you were talking about the movie style or something, until I realized "the bay" was the cargo bay.
Heh heh... not the Michael Bay.
More picture I see of this guy, the more I think I might pick him up
I still can't get over those blood red arms...Overall, the figure just doesn't do it for me personally. I think the design is a bit bland to be honest.
I love the orange arms/claws. Reminds me... of all things...Depthcharge.
The only big issue I have with this guy are his massive pontoon feet. I know he needs large feet to support his massive back kibble...but there had be to a better way to do it. And the incredibly thin ankles just serve to make the feet look larger.
I like the spring loaded rear bay option. It pops open and out comes a small optimus prime truck!
i picked this guy up yesterday. his feet are crazy huge but i dig him in bot mode. he looks great in plane mode and it is by far my favorite of the two modes.
