    Hi All,

    I picked up the above mentioned figure recently.

    Now I shouldn't like him.

    Individual aspects like being a major shell former with a fugly backpack, no wrist swivels and very minimal paint should have me not liking him BUT despite all of that I do.

    He feels solid, his alt mode looks great and he looks quite imposing.

    Anyone else in the same boat where despite the deficiency factors you still end up liking the end result?

    Hound looks like he is auditioning for that office lobby scene in the Matrix.

    Yeah, he looks awesome to me, in spite of the backpack. He's probably going to be my 3rd favorite behind voyager Prime and Hound.

    I'm a bit underwhelmed but I'm not dissatisfied, since he's got a perfect bruiser-look to him and an awesome gun. Apart from the backpack, I really don't like how high his knee joint is nor do I like how odd his gun looks when you plug it in all the way.

    I don't have him but the design isn't my problem it's just the color choices, I wish he was all the color of the cab.

    Those who actually like him are trolls and shills.

    Mine just arrived today from BBTS, and something that impressed me is the amount of molded detail this figure has. His entire body is filled with all kind of tubes, cables, pistons, etc. Each one has different textures on it, somes areas are smooth, then others have a "grainy" texture; some tubes have a pattern of "holes", others have a criss-cross pattern, or are divided by perpendicular lines. Even the interior of his weapon, where the 5mm post is, has some nice molded detail.

    All those details brake up the figure, giving it a more "busy" look and making it stand out so much, even when by all means it shouldn't look that impressive thanks to its simplistic nature.
