    I am on the fence with this one. Although the colors are not what I would expect, the mold is rather iffy. Once I see it here in the US retail stores, I will have a better look at the figure before I make a commitment to buy it.

    The mold still looks cool, but the legs look unpainted. The colors are great! Kinda makes him look like what he is on the show.

    His legs are backwards... other than that he looks okay, but I really don't like the dark colours (and the paint apps on his face look... wrong). I hope it's only the photo that makes him look darker... he looked alot better in those lighter blue colours we saw before.

    Hmm..compared to the show model, his colours are a few shades off, and looks murkier. Still, I'm gonna get him!

    I hope they change the puke green color for the inner shoulder joints, but other than it's looking pretty good.

    I am digging this figure. I want to see its counterpart Blender or Quickmix because I like its cannon arm. What size is it?

    Moledive/Menasor is an Ultra and Blender/Quickmix is a Voyager.

    Like all of Cybertron, Menny here makes me quite happy.

    In my pants.

    I haven't seen the show, but are the characters from "giant planet" supposed to be way bigger than these toys are?

    If they were in show scale, Metroplex's toy would need to be aboue twice as tall as Super Mode Optimus, Quickmix and Menasor would each need to be toys the size of Supreme Starscream to relate to Optimus, by comparison.

    Part of the reason Menasor keeps his whole main chunk in one piece, BTW, is because his Mini-Con rides in his chest. Not sure why. It was evident in the first CGI outlines we saw with no color, too, but it was never made out as if he was a piloted Mini-Con armor or anything...he's a unique character.

    Ah I see. I guess the scales aren't quite as bad as I thought then. It'd be goofy to expect them to release such huge characters at scale anyway. I know they'd just be shelf warmers, despite any fan craze.

    I like it, except the legs (either the color or the shape)

    And that mini-con is pure love.

    Definetely on my 'to buy' list.

    Wow, I really thought the whte looked nice, but I'm REALLY digging the green! I'll definitely pick it up when it's released:)

    It may be a stupid question. Along with Galvatron, Quickmix, Menasor and Metroplex; are there any other figures slated to come out representing the Giant Planet in the Cybertron line?

    Devastator, I believe that's it. As far as "new molds" Cybertron is getting close to being over with really, kind of hard to believe.

    Thank you for the reply. It's sad we won't be seeing much then. It seems yesteday the line had just got started. Time flies so fast.

    There's always plenty of repaints though, the larger size classes will need them.

    Awesome. I'm definitely getting him. Only thing I don't like is the color of the legs and shoulder hinges.
