    The plastic is very good and its a pretty big toy. the joints and transformation are good to, it has good articulation in lots of places. Maybe I can try doing a review on it since I did not see one in the review section.

    I had originally thought about it but passed. If you do a good review you might be able to sell me on it. I'm definitely not army building for $70+shipping though. What are they thinking?!

    I thought the $70 at first was high till I had it in hand but its much bigger then a deluxe, its still $50 cheaper then Igear Ironhide or Ratchet and its way bigger so im ok with it.

    It's not leader size I know that more like 6 inches I think? But the high price tag has me saying no right now as I have a feeling these will get clearances out no matter who carries them.

    Have to admit, I wasn't going to get these, but after watching TF -TM this past weekend with my sons, I went ahead and pre ordered one. If the quality is as good as some folks have said, I may get some more - when they go on sale.

    they have a size comparison with a soda can somewhere, and it's at least 2 or 3 inches taller.

    I want to see the quality of this thing before paying a dime for it.

    I have seen the Nightbird/Arcee horror stories.
