    Where to start....

    So, this is why pre-release pics are so helpful...

    Ugh....

    Have there really been any good pics of this guy yet?...

    Anyway, I normally like the SWTF's. They're fun, different, and, often, just cool enough.

    This guy is poop. Seriously, he looks like fat guy dressed up like a Trooper at a convention!

    I promise, those pictures make him look way cooler than he really is!

    Articulation in the arms is pretty good, double jointed elbows, bicep and wrist swivels. Thats about all I got good to say about this guy.
    His waist is rediculously wide, as are his hips which connect to his thin, short legs. Leg articularion is way weak, very limited knees, no thigh swivel, ok but limited hips.

    Ok, I do have one more good thing to say: Transformation is, at least, decent. He's got some back kibble, but nothing like alot of SWTF's, at least the vehicle parts actually form the robot limbs.

    Tank mode looks great, but it has a big hollow front end.

    And to top it all off, mine had paint smudges/boogers/fingerprints/etc in a number of spots. I'm taking this guy back to TRU as soon as I get the chance.

    Yeah, it's the alt mode that got me.

    Like any other opened toy? I keep the packaging, but just return it opened.


    Apparently! I know it's been bought at least twice in Central FL.
