    It's pics like that that make me glad I ordered this (and forgot) back in the summer. I have Downbeat and like him just fine as a bot... albeit with enough reprolabels to cover all of the "plain", but that Hova altmode blows the other two away. Can't wait until he arrives.

    The chest is just too wide. And also there's no blue transparent headlights yet again.

    I fired off a couple of emails to vendors, but does anyone know if the international version ever showed up anywhere? The listings that I see on the etailer and ebay are non-specific or just have pics for the normal version.

    Which version is which? I assume the one I'm getting is the one in the picture at TFD that has the proper Martini livery. Who knows what will actually show up.

    The OP pics show the int'l version to be devoid of the sponsor logos. That's the one I want. All of the fleabay listings are using one set of pics and the US etailers are all using a different set of pics, but none of them specify which one it is (so maybe it doesn't even exist).

    I understand that some people are into the 'toon look and would want the plain version of the bot for that reason, but I can't imagine wanting to boring-up that beautiful car mode. Blasphemy!

    My biggest worry with this is that the quality doesn't match the looks. Some paint scrapes, the spoiler not lining up very well and that snapped catch in the above photo's are making me nervous.

    Come on video review - we need you!

    Alt mode is beautiful. MT still wins bot mode.

    I thought I heard they aren't doing that version anymore. Can't remember where I heard it though.

    I'm fine with Downbeat and I own the modern version because idw. This looks good, except for the decal skeet-skeet-skeet all over him (not always a toon guy, but in this instance).

    So I went back and found and watched this Chinese video review of this guy from back in May. Do we know if the engineering has changed at all since then? If not, I may pass after all. The engineering for clipping the shoulders/arms onto the torso is... not very good. Someone at the time mentioned this thing having some Omnigonix type gimmicks and engineering to it. Frankly, I have to agree. Naturally, final judgement is reserved until the finished product ends up in the hands of the popular reviewers. In the end though, it may be the price point that sells me on it. #WaitAndSee

    The shoulder engenieering is wonky and final as far as I have seen

    I want to love this guy but the more I look at pics of early samples the more unsure I become. The single piece crotch skirt and massive chest are close to deal breakers but the alt mode is perfect IMO. The price seems reasonable as well. I donno and guess I will wait on in hand reviews. I would expect reviews in a couple weeks

    I think that's why I quit looking at this guy...

    This pic is a "nope" for me: a7c98f25bc315c601ad15abc80b1cb13485477d7.jpg
