    This guy arrived in the mail today and I couldn't find any threads, images or feedback about him anywhere online so I figured I should put something up.

    First off: He's kind of small. Much smaller than I expected. Here he is compared to Classics Skywarp:

    Once I got over the initial size disappointment I started to warm up to him. He is extremely detailed. The battle damage is excellent and the purple reformatting effect works brilliantly. His arm cannon looks very nice, it shows off some internal mechanisms and details which is a cool:

    He comes in three parts: The main body and then the two arms. You just kind of have to shove the arms into the body but you can move them around to get some slight variations in his pose. For instance you can do the movie accurate "arms by the side" stance as shown at the start of the thread.

    The Unicron base is very nice and works well with the figure. Is he worth the cost? I'm not sure. I'm kind of on the fence. He is very very cool, although a tad small. I while admit that after getting this guy I am now tempted to pick up the Battle Damaged Prime bust as well...

    Yes, this bust is much smaller than the regular DST Megatron bust. It is nice but considering the Megatron bust cost me $40 and this one $60 I expected more. I posted some pictures of this and the first DST bust in the gallery here.
