    Packing: Same type as the rest. The little buy list that came with the Voyagers and up is also included in this as well. The only new things on this is Ultimate Bumblebee and the Robot Replicas.

    Vehicle Mode: Very pretty, a mini Alternator, but with the GM license I bet they had to get it looking so good. All the windows are a clear dark blue. QC allready needs addressed, this paint on the doors looked to be a bit rushed, so theres some spots to where it is not that good. Overall, "HOLY CRAP GO GET THIS."

    Transformation:
    Open doors, pull legs down, pull shoulders down. Curse a bit here, rotate the top peices of the car that are on the arms. Pull the hood down and holy crap, we have the first automorph:
    Pulling down the hood rotate the arms up and putting the chest in its final place.
    The legs split of course and take the feet and pull out, and yet more automorph:
    Doing this pulls the back window to the inside of the leg and the back end rises up as seen is the latest trailer.

    Robot Mode:
    Looks very... 'atheletic' compared to him looking a bit chunky in the film. His head is a remold, a little extra here, a little there, he also has light piping, dark blue. Torso is set on a ball joint, he can lean in far, but cant lean back due to his windshield. Hands are on ball joints as well. Legs are just awesome.

    Weapon:
    Based on his movie cannon, the blades cool. When you open it up the halves fall back and the blades comes up.

    Overall: This is a very, very cool figure. The alt. mode is worth $10. The robot mode is just as cool. My only gripe is the fact it looks like the '74 Bumblebee is now going to be left alone for some time.

    That I cant say. Whats the signs for a sample? It came sealed in his deal, with instructions, little flyer deal for the next stuff. I guess it's the real deal. Cause we have just a little more than a month for this to show up on the store shelves.

    Hey, great review. I'm pretty impatient for this one to come out.

    Can you do a comparison shot of the vehicle mode with Jazz?

    I'm going to say no. But the front part is a bit troublesome. But once you get used to it, everythings good. The leg automorph I'd compare to Ironhides.

    Waits patiently for bot mode pics.

    The cannon intrigues me. So how does it work?

    The gun spilts it half and as you pull the halves back, gears move the blade up. It's pretty cool.

    This has definitely become my most anticipated figure in the next wave.

    Hell, I'm even thinking about trading in my WRX for the new Camaro when it comes out. :lol

    There, that's better. This drives me insane LOL. Maybe because I am on my 4th camaro in my life time. :D  (not because they broke, because I kept trading for ones that I liked better LOL)
