    I would really like to get this I just can not justify the purchase. I have the Target exclusive two pack of UM and Skywarp. It cost me 30 bucks and to spend 75 + shipping for a fan made add on is way to high. I am not knocking there ability to create a nice piece just not 75 bucks nice. It is good to see this though maybe they will make a second run since BBTS, Digital Toys, and TFsource all have orders placed.

    Eh. Its okay I guess. Legs look somewhat awkward. I also wonder about the arm pieces, and the quality of the plastics. Hope its not a crappy paint job either.

    OMG. That's an amazing piece of craftsmanship, I want that so badly but the pricetag is killer... maybe when I get my economic kickback money... maybe...

    price tag a killer now i understand that for an add on it is up there but look at the CJ pack for 60 bucks u didnt get half as much i think tfc learned if they pump out enough it will be cheaper heck alot of peeps were saying 100-125 for this when first shown me im glad its just that and to finally have a way to hide them goudy arm/door hinges is enough for me.

    The bigger worry is that you need an aerosol can to support the BFG...

    Magnus can't deal with heavy weaponry now.

    Heh, thought I would share this little tidbit. My brother, who hasn't bought a Transformer in like 5 years, actually had me preorder this for him. To be honest it shocked me. He said the BFG is what did it for him

    Easy pass for me. The legs don't look right & the trailer looks like a camper.

    BFG for teh win!!!

    Also, I'm not too worried that he won't be able to hold it, I highly doubt the actual product will be too heavy.

    What worries me is...there seems to be a lot more trailer then there is armor...and I hate loose pieces.

    Oh well, still on pre-order. If I don't like it by the time it's about to come out I'll just cancel.

    It will supposdly be fully painted according to the two color scheme pics seen below the model preview. If it wasn't painted then it wouldn't be worth it imo.

    The photos are of the prototype, the final version will be colored. Apparently those color schemes are close but not final. People who have seen the final version say it looks amazing in trailer mode too.

    wonder how long it will take TFSource to presell out of this?

    No matter, got it anyway.
