    That is much better looking then I thought it would be from the pictures. Backpack isn't nearly as imposing. Smaller then I thought it would be though. Also, he said he got it off Amazon, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

    Holy crap, the figure isn't horribly designed.:eek: 


    Needs paint of course, but looks great otherwise.

    That transformation is actually pretty cool. It's fairly intricate and intuative, but not too complicated or finnicky looking except maybe the front fenders. (though the reviewer didn't seem to have troubles at all)

    Shit, I might just get this.

    The kid got it from Amazon? o_O  This video looks suspicious. I've a feeling Hasbro is behind this. :D

    Huh. The figure is actually pretty nice! Kind of surprising considering how awful the last movie Leader version was.
    I may pick this up when it eventually gets the inevitable 'dark' version.

    Oh, and yeah, the appearance of this video around the time of the New York show isn't exactly surprising. I do think it's either good 'free advertising', or way too coincidental to not be staged.

    Wei Jiang's paint is even more fantastic than Takara's.

    KO's aren't for everyone though.
    I would also like to see Takara's take on this figure. I'll bet they knock the dark version out of the park.

    You know this figure will get repainted at least a dozen times between Hasbro & Takara, look at how many Evasion Ops there are. I'm sure one of the Takara or Platinum paint jobs will nail it!

    I really like the look and transformation of this figure. Dammit. I really wanted to skip TLK toys.

    Sorry wallet.

    Man, even this kid (yes a kid, not some 20+ year old long-time collector) bashes Hasbro on lack of paint, wrong paint/plastic colors, kibble, and how the AOE leader was based on the concept art and not the final film design. Kid knows his stuff. I guess kids share the same complaints!
