    They screwed up on his headlight shoulderpads. It looks really weird. Eeeeeh.

    ....is that mistransformed?

    Something looks off.

    Anyone got the prototype pic handy to compare?

    EDIT: Okay, to compare, here's the prototype. Looks like those panels on the waist compress some.

    WOW.

    Everything that could go wrong, did. the sides of the car front are too low, chest is too boring and flat, doors just... doors. I know that's where the doors go in robot mode, but the CG model deforms them quite a bit.

    I could forgive the arms if the body actually looked like Knockout's body.

    Dear Hasbro, THIS is the perfect time to use fake bits for robot mode.

    EDIT: Looking at the prototype photo, it's good that the sides of the car front come up more, but that chest is still horribly inaccurate (they should have cheated it), and he's missing the details insidde the front of the sides of the front of the car that give him a nice splash of color on the show.

    Waist is definitely mistransformed. Makes him look more paper-thin than he actually is, I'd say.

    I even made a thread because I believe all of the Deluxes fit into FE that are not remolds.

    I like it, on the grounds that it's mistransformed. It looks like things can be moved around to make this look good.

    Yeah; further looking, it's not just the waist that's mistransformed - looking at the prototype pics, the shoulders are supposed to sit higher on the figure. That should improve it a lot.

    That, and it's a poor angle.

    I really wish they could find a better way of creating the forearms. The folding of flat pieces into a hollow rectangle shape just doesn't cut it for me (ie: Movie Jazz, Prime Cliffjumper, Prime Ratchet, now Prime Knockout... I know I'm missing a few).

    I also wish they would ease up on the Photoshopping of images: This one is almost all 'shine' with very little color. Then again maybe the actual toy is fairly monochromatic.

    $5 (not placing an actual bet) says he's mis-transformed. I think that's a given based off the prototype shot Tekno posted and the fact that product shots like this are always mistransformed (i remember WFC megs being one of the more recent egregiously mistransformed ones).

    That being said. Holy crap i want this toy! must clear a shelf for Prime toys now! I have one minor gripe and that is that i thought his animation model had more white/silver on the torso. Maybe that's just me though.
