    Just in today with Jetfire: Long Haul!

    Long Haul is in the classic Constructicon green, and retains his Dump Truck alt mode.

    The joints in his arms, however, allow the dumper to work:

    Transformation is average, nothing complex, but not simple either. The gates DO lock onto his thighs. Sadly, while you can pose the wheels on his shoulders a bit, the backpack goes no lower. There's hinges everywhere in that assembly EXCEPT for where the whole thing meets the torso. Still, Pretty cool.

    [​IMG]

    Each arm also has a flip out Axe activated by a button on his upper arm:

    Here he is with his fellow Constructicons.

    And a recreation of a shot from the trailer:

    Sadly, so far he looks way too big to work with Devastator in this size. Radicons may want to look to the FAB for their kitbashing/custom needs. But definitely worth picking up!

    I like the fab version more, but I'll still definitely pick this guy up.

    Thanks for the review!

    Hey Peaugh, due to his double jointed knee do you think you can pose his feet ala Starscream chicken legs?

    Sadly, no, it's double jointed, but it folds FORWARD for transformation. It can't fold backward much without modification.

    Dude! Thanks!

    I think he looks great. Can we get a pic of all the constructicons in vehicle mode please?

    Looks cool. I'll be getting him and Rampage

    Where do you rank him among the four Constructicons?

    Only individual Constructicon I plan on getting as of yet..... maybe mixmaster as well. But this guy is a must! The design is just great, even if not completely realized in toy form (much like many of the Movie designs). But that's a quibble that many have heard far too often and am sure are sick of hearing.

    Thanks for the review, Peaugh. If you have the time, could we get some shots showing off his poseability? Thanks!

    Seeing as how all the other constructicons have a "3rd mode" have you any guesses at what Long Haul's is?

    He doesn't seem to have one. It would've been on the back of his box.

    Going to be shooting some more tomorrow, so I'll try and get some then.

    Alright. Nothing spectacular, but not a brick either.

    I'm gonna have to pick this beast up!

    One question though. Could you try to pose the four like they would be as Devastator? Just wanna see what that looks like.
