Really the only downside to him, other than the lack of any leg articulation, is that the two things that are supposed to stick up behind his head on his back don't stay up very good, and thus pretty much any movement at all makes them fall backwards. I'm gong to attempt to make them click into his back somewhere, so that they'll stay put in bot-mode. Other than that he's actually pretty good for a $6 toy. He holds together really good in alt-mode, and is decently sized. I have found the name Sunco Ltd. and Made In China stamped on him. I might sand that off as it sticks out pretty well in alt-mode.
