    I just posted on the other thread but I received both today. I'll check when I get home. Maybe I'll get to post some pics.

    Yeah, the paint apps on his head and chest do not seam clean and they looked smeared. I wonder if only mine is like that or did the paint rub off as I handled him. I still think he is cool. I think I like his alt mode better but for now he is in robot mode.

    Great use of a figure, couldn't think of a better character for it! Paints apps are a little so-so, but ultimately forgivable.

    Thanks for the pics. It looks a lot better than I thought it would. Always hated that robot mode, but the new head and paint apps help. Car mode looks great. Kinda wished I'd ordered him too. Here's hope he'll still be around in a few weeks/months after I pay off some looming home repair bills. Until then, I'm sure my Seacon set will tide me over!

    He looks better than I expected, but I still hate that damn mold!

    I got a box today on my porch... And it was my HTS Stormcloud and Treadbolt... I was really hoping it was my Seacons & Nightbeat. But hey, new toys are new toys.... :D

    Yeah - I really have to say that going off the pics this looks alright. Still a pity they chopped off the antennae in the factory though.

    Though there's probably better molds out there for Nightbeat, this one looks good.

    This looks good but is not worth the money.

    But... it's so much cheaper to have ordered from the club directly. *confused*

    Doesn't do much for me to be honest.. It looks like a toy I'd give my 5 year old nephew to bash around the living room. It looks sturdy but ugly.
