    Vortex apparently has his rotor blades on his hands instead of on his back. what's your opinion of them? do they suck or are they a decent gimmick?

    They suck. I display the SDCC Combaticons with DOTM Vortex. SDCC Vortex is in storage.

    I don't mind the sidearm blades but man the plastic on these guys feel so soft, like chocolates

    They kind of get in the way. I really would have preffered it if they kept them on his back. Blades on the arm just seem really out of place.

    I made mine removable. I wish they would have designed them on his back instead

    The arm blades suck. I am sure they could've done something to have them on the back. Hasbro is really sucking hard this year.

    I don't see the big problem with them.. I just put one of his weapons in his hand in the gun position and it doesn't move.

    I'm not as concerned with the blades on the arm as I am the awful color scheme.

    It looks awkward. Not a fan.

    Actually, the entire toy looks awkward. The robot mode, the tiny karate chop hand, the bleh colors...

    I don't mind the blades and I actually kind of like the color.

    Betcha one could whip up DOTM Vortex into a more than passable arm.

    Wow, I'm actually entirely the opposite. I LIKE the softer plastic (not TOO soft like RotF Lockdown's hand/hook) as it doesn't break when I try to bring them together/spread 'em out. I do NOT like that they're stuck on the arm how they are. Maybe if you could swing them down so he could use it as a shield, it may've been better; but I'd of preferred them on his back.

    I do this as well, right hand sword, left hand gun.
