    How do you like him?

    What are the Cons (pun!) to him?

    I don't even have Leader Brawl yet (which I must get), but lately, I've been considering Ult.BB...obviously, the price scares me the most, and I could care less about the lights and sounds. How fun is he to TF? Is he as cool in robot mode as the Deluxe figure?

    I like him..........BUT I left him in the box as I did the rest of the movie figures.

    A couple of notes about him.

    He's a pain to transform, very fiddly and it often feels like you're going to break something.

    Articulation is limited due to electronics and the sheer weight of the figure.

    It's very har do position the wheels so that they neither obstruct the "wings" or arms.

    Electronics are pretty neat, but they get old pretty fast, hearing short clips of Whip it over and over.

    He's not worth the money IMO. I'm glad I won mine. If it had been my money I'd been VERY dissapointed.

    When he gets available to $50 he's a nice toy.. but else just a waste of money. You're better of with Leader class Brawl.

    Thanks, guys (keep the comments coming!).

    I'm getting Brawl regardless (and more than likely soon). I'll probably wait to see if this goes on clearance before dropping $80 on something I'm not sure about.

    I like him. But, I think Leader Brawl is a better value and I think Deluxe 08 BB is the best movie BB available. I like the giant alt mode of Ultimate and my kids like the electronics. Like someone said, $50 would be more resonable.

    If you do get him, get the one with Deluxe Brawl and Scorponok as pack-ins. Even if you have them, more kitbash fodder and whatnot

    I have em, but I'm disappointed in him..too much kibble, and he always seems like is going to fall over...the electronics are kinda centered in the back so when you have him standing, you have to adjust the leg just right. Overall, $80 is too much for this figure....makes me long for 1987..where you could get a Fort Max for almost the same price...and a much better toy. :D

    My son got one for his birthday from gramps (thank god, because I was NOT going to plunk down 70 bucks on it after all the negatives I've read about him)

    All the input previously posted is right on. If he drops to like 49.99 or something he would be easier to consider purchasing...but 70-80 dollars for him is just NOT worth it IMO.

    Question: Would it be easy or at least possible to remove the electronics? And if removed would it lend more posability to the figure? I'd also like to find a way to give him a second hand. I've been waiting for clearance prices to get this guy but I'm still afraid he's going to end up being a big waste of space.

    I got him for $20, so I think he's worth it. But if his chest and weaponry was more accurate, I would really love him.
