    Haha love the armor mode. The gun mode looks like the best Minicon handgun so far. The figure itself looks okay. Guess I'll pick it up, I've got all the other PCC's.

    Nice review of a very mediocre figure...That's the main thing I love about video reviews...it saves me money by showing me in advance what the future shelfwarmers look like.
    It seems like the latest PCC figures are getting cheap on us by not having that second head for gestalt mode...this guy gets a little visor thingy, and what's the deal with PCC Sledge? He's got a P/CP thing going on with that lame "rotate head 180 degrees, and flip out horns" for new head.
    I am only buying these as stand alone figures for customs and repaints...maybe a real combiner made up of these things...

    The minicon is quite nice looking, having the neck connected to the waist is a nice touch for a figure that small. I think I'll pick this set up just for it.

    The rest of the figure, while not the greatest, doesn't look bad either.

    This guy looks awesome. I love how his combiner head is a fold down helmet xD
    And its obvious all airlift wants is to give his buddy a hug!

    I don't think the armor mode looks too bad when viewed from the front so long as you position everything as neatly as possible. Yeah, it does look...odd to say the least, from the side.

    I suppose the loose rocking action on those chest ports won't make it any easier to keep from making them look like they're doing something very wrong. Should be good for a laugh or two at any rate!

    Too right. I normally base my decision to buy new figures from these video reviews. This figure is a must not buy.

    The robot mode reminds me of Armada Starscream. And that's probably what I'll turn one into (well, Starscream, not Armada Starscream).

    If you can deploy the nosecone port in Alt mode, I'd combine it with Unicron Dead End to make an R-Type reference.

    Sledge has a neat punch/counter punch headswap going on. Its a great sculpt and I like how the panels cover up the face your not useing. Mine always has that Demonic Soundwave head on, unless its time for a oil break at mcadddams.

    Skyhammer has faults. But its still miles better than skyburst's simplicity. Its taking flak. But keeping in mind its a scout size figure, I'm going to try it out.

    Looks like they were trying to get a macross veritech look compromiseing some chunks for the triple change and power cubes. The goggles I think look fantastic. may just display it with those on.

    I will be picking him up as well. I really like the plane mode and the other modes aren't any worse than the other PCC Commanders out now. Besides, I've already resigned myself to being a PCC completist (or at least attempting to do it).

    The "armor" mode is weird, though. I'm pretty sure I won't be displaying him that way once I get it.
