    The designer of these beauties is the last descendant of Merlin. I'm sure of it.

    I'm cautiously optimistic. I'll wait for some reviews of articulation. This guy does look great so far though.

    This design was stolen. A whistle-blower reported that UT claimed that if "they don't do it better then somebody else will, because you
    you cannot stop technology". I can't say from who they took this design from for legal reasons but, I can offer you a quote from the effected party:

    I'll report back with more news as it happens.

    So if these are the actual knee hinges, then it looks like he'll have ratcheted knees with very deep bends. Like nearly 180° deep. Hope the rest of the figure matches up to this level of articulation but the elbows already look a little limited...

    It's ok but jet mode is kinda blocky, it doesn't flow like the others do.

    I'll probably stick with rendsora.

    I kinda figured UT would do a new face swap head for Challenger. I hate when they pack it in with another figure though. But, I was getting this Megatron anyway.

    Not my favorite version of Megatron, but will likely to get him. Also the transformation will be fantastic I’m sure.

    I feel the complete opposite. Bayformers being restricted by Hasbro price points and being made so kids can buy them too has ensured that they will basically never ever look as good or function as well as the best that 3P can offer. Challenger blows every other knight Optimus out of the water in basically every way. Until studio series happened Hasbro bayformers were always severely sub-par when it came to accuracy simply due to how they had to be designed and manufactured. Challenger has even made people appreciate the knight Prime design more now that they know they can get a non-crap toy of it, which makes it seem more possible IRL and therefore more believable. 3P did that not Hasbro.

    With all due respect, but go back to your hole please. :) 

    Yes!!!!

    Yes please! Because I thought this model was designed by a person working for UT.

    That’s a good point. I hope it’s not as hindered in movement as Challenger seemed to be
