    After a long toy drought thanks to movies and a slower than normal summer release schedule all of a sudden it's pull out money left and right.

    Still it's sort of the crown jewel of the Stealth Force line so there is all the fun of tracking the figure down.

    It's neat, but I wish we has motorized Transforms that actually self-transformed right before your eyes, like the Gen.2 Auto Rollers.

    It's not warped. It's part of the weaponry. When you push the buttons to deploy the weapons, the smokestacks move forward and horizontal becoming guns. If anything, the spring mechanism is too loose and doesn't allow the smokestack to go completely straight.

    I've seen this twice this week in the UK: TRU in Swindon and Asda, Orbital Retail Park in Swindon. Asda also had the smaller vehicles in the same series, saw the Hound.
