    I honestly believe that the rods were meant for Cybertronian Wheeljack (remember, we almost got him in Siege) but when that didn't happen they decided to give them to Bee to help justify the pricepoint

    I'm in Brooklyn. If I remember next time I'm out, I'll take a picture.

    $22.99 is reasonable. I would have definitely snapped it up had that been the price out here.

    I dunno why, I feel like I should hate this thing, absolutely tearing it apart over kibble and some weird feet transformation...

    But he's so fucking cute in both modes I can't hate it.

    He needs some arm fillers - the fists don't even need to fold in, they look fine folded out under vehicle mode, they even help fill in the back void under the vehicle with all the other black parts there. Wish they would have just given him solid arms and got the backpack to fold up a little more.

    Other than than, I like him.

    Would have got a second one to properly accesorize WFC BB but a bit too pricey. The transformation and Alt mode are neat. Only issue with mine was one of the energy rods had some sort of adhesive on it. I just Binned it, I've got four others. This is what pictured for Siege BB. Could have done with some tech details in the sculpt to fit properly but easily close enough to say done.

    Port Washington Target (Long Island) had them for $28.49!!!

    I still picked it up since I had a coupon and Circle point or whatever they're called.

    Absolutely in love with this guy. I can forgive the kibble. The saucer mode is fantastic and they really nailed the look of a robot that should transform into a VW Beetle but turns into a space ship instead look...kibble aside of course.

    ^Pretty much sums it up for me. I still can’t believe they actually made this guy. I thought for sure we’d get him in Siege…and after that didn’t happen, I figured it was a lost cause. The kibble is a bit unsightly, but better than I would expect for a mass released deluxe that does what this guy does. He’ll probably spend most of his life in saucer mode, so, I’m going to need to figure out some kind of clip for those rods that can attach to the saucer. Good job on this guy, HasTak!

    Love the alt mode, did not enjoy getting him into it, those panels on ball joints on his legs were constantly popping off and getting the legs folded up was really fiddly.

    I do wish he had wheels. But, that’s a minor detail. It’s a fun little guy, although a bit overpriced

    Found one at Target today.
    Man, this thing is pretty darn awesome! I was impressed by the transformation, and the bot mode is a little package of fun.
    The only issue I has was the windowless box. Not a fan of that.

    Made my own conductor rods (NFS) as the stock ones are jank. Diameter is 2.5mm so that two of them may fit snug in a 5mm hand port.

    Posted this in my bloated mod thread:

    Is a "generic" stand that comes in many Gundam kits. I have a bunch I don't ever use. If you want one DM me a shipping addy and I'll throw it in a mailer.

    Not sure if pointed out before, but the gun can store inside the backpack, doesn’t clip into place but it does stay in place:
