    Doesn't look half bad, might pick him up when he gets back in stock at BBTS.

    ...yup. Looks not a damn thing like Smokescreen. They should've repainted Bumblebee instead. He's got similar shoulder pads, arms, legs and proportions to Smokescreen.

    Complete and total pass on this thing.

    Wow. That is one of the worst repaints/remolds I've seen in ages. Glaring white, downright ugly micron ports and not even a passing resemblance to the character.
    For once, I hope an Asian release stays in Asia. I'll stick with the Cyberverse version.

    Would it be wise to sticker this? Or, hope for reprolabels?

    AM stickers are pretty good quality.

    This is exactly what I was saying when he was first introduced. And it really surprises me because we all know how much Hasbro loves their Bumblebee repaints/retools :lol

    The mold looks more like Smokescreen than it does Knock Out...

    that is the worst excuse for a figure i have seen in a while, especially considering smokescreen is such a big part of the show.

    What the f...?

    NO paint apps? That's terrible, stickers or not.

    Is it too much to hope for a Hasbro release???

    I'm sure this is just a temporary measure to get a Deluxe Smokescreen out for his debut.

    That an all new mold dedicated to Smokescreen is in the works but not ready for a November release.

    Lovely Micron but darn is Smokey and ugly little fella - he's so colourless he looks like a prototype.

    That said I'll still buy it for the Micron and the character.

    You know what? If only the Knockout mold was decent enough, I'd say this works well enough. The only really glaring omission are the door wings, the rest is 'sort of close'.

    Big el-oh-el at the fact he comes totally unpainted, though. When all the details are just stickers, he look is even cheaper.

    Oh, and the AM ports Takara put on this figure are horrible.

    I agree. As much as I felt the last thing we needed was another BB repaint. The mold makes more sense than Knockout.
