I think this guy has been out for a while but this is the first time my Wal Mart has had one. (and the only one I might add) Still have not seen Soundwave. Anyway... Vehicle Mode: I'm going to review both vehicle modes as one part sense it's the same thing just folding the treads underneath. It's kinda like the "vehicle" modes on Transmetal figures from Beast Wars. The hover mode I'm just going to say looks like crap and shouldn't even be a mode. The whole thing is basically just a brick with a cannon on top and I don't care how advance alien technology gets I can't believe this thing would be able to fly like that. With the treads it actually makes a fairly decent Cybertronian tank. The only real flaw is that I wish there was another rotating joint above each split in his arm so that the treads could rotate around and hide his hands. There is some nice detailing inside the arms but it still kind of bothers me that his hands are clearly visible in vehicle mode. Robot Mode: He looks good but there are a few flaws with the mold. His joint are all very stiff. His chest plate doesn't quite tab into place properly. He's got a really odd elbow joint due to his transformation. And compaired to War for Cybertron Optimus Prime and Bumblebee his transformation and articulation is really simple. Actually his articulation is about as good as a G1 toy, the only parts that seem to move are part of his transformation and all of his joints are really stiff except for the head and chest, they're loose. I'd give this guy a 3 out of 10 but he does seem to be the worst War for Cybertron figure of the 3 I have so far.
