I generally don't do "reviews," I let the pictures do that talking. But feel free to ask any questions, though I'm sure Peaugh has most of them covered by now. I'll just say that I like him a great deal.

Is that the proper way of putting the hood parts on his back? I like to leave mine up to look like wings like the G1 versions of prowl and jazz.

Looks kinda top heavy. Can he pose or balance fairly well? And are the pieces that connect the legs to the hips soft rubbery plastic?

Also, if its not too much trouble, can i request some pics of the light piping? Wondering if it shines bright, or there's too much obstruction in the back that blocks out the light.

All in all, awesome figure!

If you pose the heels right, he can just lean back on them and its not too bad.

Yes, but that's not what connects the legs to the body. If you look carefully in the closeup pic, you can see that they are actually connected with transparent plastic joints. Very cool effect.

The light-piping on mine does not shine very well. Even if I hold it up to the light, it doesn't come through very brightly, on mine at least.

Cool, thanks anyway.

Man, that alt mode is sleek! Can't wait to get my hands on that beauty.

Here are the heels. If you position them like this (may take a couple tries to get them juuuuust right) and fold them in, he is quite stable. There is really nothing to worry about.

Any chance for a dynamic, leg intensive pose? Most photos I've seen make it seem like his legs are not going to be good for much.
