    I have both, and they are one of the most disappointing figures. The tabs behind the chest and how they are impossible to lock in alt mode...kill me.

    I'm indifferent now. I kicked myself for a while for not getting the first release. It's not the best but, I'm a big Gears fan. He is essential.

    $53 is a good price, I think.

    He's a trick to tab into truck mode but on display, you can't ask for much more. It's 100% Gears.

    That sucks about the hands. Never realised that. Ah well, no better options available and it's only £45.

    Didn't think I'd ever get this guy. I've got the Swerve version of the mould, which is one of those figures that anyone would think you were insane if you told them it cost almost £50, but I just can't resist filling the Gears-shaped hole in my life at last. I'll transform it precisely once then leave it on a shelf forever, but so it goes.

    Such tinybots oten don't have articulated fingers. Even M-21 has closed fists.

    Grump is a pain to transform (not quite as bad as Swerve), but he nails the look and poses really well.

    A lack of fiberf articulation I get, but even Brawny and Huff's hands open.

    I'm more annoyed that MMC has such limited hand articulation on much larger bots.
