    Looks awesome. Shame about the weak pegging on the torso but aside from that and the shitty alt mode, pretty much a flawless figure by the looks of it.

    Nice review.

    Thanks for the review.

    It's a nice looking figure but I think I'll wait for the inevitable larger version. I have a feeling that will fix most of the issues with it.

    edit: The part where you get the feet was interesting. I honestly couldn't figure out where they came from just by looking at the toy.

    The alt mode's actually pretty nice in person. Its size and sleekness alone make it impressive, although the bullshitty nature of its design does hamper that.

    I love it!!


    This guy right here will be my stand in until a bigger version comes out, but even as a deluxe he looks imposing.

    Yeah, that's mainly what I was referring to. It's the design of the model, rather than the toy's implementation of it I dislike. Still, when am I ever gonna display him in alt mode, right?

    Like it very much, it's a shame that torso piece not attaching properly. Reminds me of RTS Perceptor..

    that sucks about the backpack and the hollowness of the underside alt mode.

    but it's still well articulated and looks like the character on the show, so I still see it as a sweet design.

    Once people get their hands on this fig, there might be some techniques on how to make the backpack hold better.

    Well, I preordered Prime and Bulkhead... So whenever they come in. As for Megs? We don't even know that he will have a voyager figure, we're just guessing he will.

    ^ Oh, I will. I will enjoy it so much.

    I turned off my camera too early and I find to too bothersome to put in credits since most people leave when the content ends.

    I'm happy, excited! I'm sharing the joy!

    Buuut... I did play my hand a bit too strong, didn't I? Oh well.
