Mistransformed arms FTW!

Mistransformation and the bent staff sure makes this guy look good.

That was some... just, some song choice.

From now on, it's Dub Enerwub Knock-Out.

They chose the worst deluxe of the set to do a 360 on, plus his saggy boob mistransformation looks isn't going to help sales of this set. I do like the colors though, im guessing it is supposed to be a toxitron homage?

BBTS just needs to hook up with a decent video reviewer who is not yet sponsored and just send that person their product to review / showcase.

Who transformed that, seriously its not even that hard to do......why dont they get someone who actually knows what they are doing to verify it before hand

Music was nice, at least this time it didn't discourage me from getting him as the video for de Optimus and megatron did

Just the arms? The whole thing looks a bit off to me, and I don't even have the regular figure.

Someone who only read the instructions. Peaugh and Vangelus both said if you go by the instructions that's what he ends up looking like.

I'd gladly take that mantle, if they still do sponsoring and such. BBTS or one of the people have an account on here?

Cool looking figure, but that was a very bad transformation job.

They really should of got one of the reviewers from youtube to do it.

The more i see these DE figures, the more conflicted i become. On the one hand, its translucent versions of moulds already existing for a somewhat reasonable price. On the other hand, i cnat help but feel i can utilize that cash for something more substantial, like a third party or an MP. I have a preorder but im thinking about canceling it. Any suggestions?

Um no? DARK ENERGON, means what? It was when Megs enfuzed them in the SHOW with Dark Energon...wow...
gokuz23
Where's the rest of them, i want to see that Badass Version of Wheeljack
IceMagnus
His staff is bent!

Too bad it's not available individually. This and Optimus are the real gems of the set.

Does this mean preorders will be shipping soon?

I do belive the legs are correctly transformed but that's about it.

yep,

waist not wrapped round,
shoulder car wings down,
chest not popped out,
arms not flattened together,
elbows.......just wow!

is that it reminds me of MECH cars (convoy)
Plainsjumper
These are nice but I really don't want yet another BB.
Cyber Star
Colors look cool but the figure itself looks horrible.
UltraAlanMagnus
Now Knock Out will Attack Dinkleberg with Dark Energon.
gunthetra
the only DE figure I really want. I feel like the translucent green is a bit more flashy than the normal retail figure's red and maroon.

It's totally inaccurate, but I feel like it suits him, oddly enough.

If you're that conflicted then pass. I sincerely doubt these will be a super fast sell out, so take a few days after they starting hitting and reviews begin to show up, and then reassess at that point. That's what I do if I'm at all ambivalent about a purchase. As you said, it's money that can always be better used elsewhere. Knee jerk purchases 1 out of 10 times become something more than you planned, but that still leaves 9 purchases that you aren't necessarily over the moon about. Don't let this one be one of those 9!

clearly you're misinformed of homages, i.e. references to color schemes or aesthetics of a character in the past now present on a new character. Knockout's color scheme here, whether intentional or not is pretty much an homage to toxitron. just because it's 'dark energon' line doesnt mean that the homage isn't there...wow.

also Megatron didn't infuse 'THEM' with Dark Energon in the show, only himself and some dead cybertronians.. -_-.

Anyway, this Dark Energon line isn't really doing it for me. Wheeljack might be cool, but I just love his original colors so much better. Megatron seemed like the only good one, but his inaccurate colors are a turn off.

Wow. That's uh...that's...mistransformed. That's...wow.

For a company in the business of selling Transformers, that's uh...yeah. Wow.

sad thing is that's the instructions...though you'd think by now they would see reviews on youtube that show how to clip everything together a bit better

There is much wisdom in what you say. I decided to do exactly as you suggested, cancelled my preorder and ill wait it out and see how things go. Thanks for the help, i do appreaciate it

Rather than an exclusive "Dark Energon" Knock Out, how 'bout just a just Knock Out that has a show accurate paint scheme rather than the hideously cheap looking standard retail version?

It's strangely appealing. Although I wish it was a clear plastic in the colour of the original release. 'Phase-Shifting' Knock Out.
