    Interesting... The jet cockpit in the chest is what I found more appealing about him IMO.

    I don't mind the jet cockpit being there. I'm just not used to it being there if that makes any sense. Looking at it from a different perspective, it does add character to the Gewalt's robot mode. Maybe I'm over-thinking this as I'm trying to decide between Gewalt and Ditka. Both have good things to offer, but I want to choose only one of the two. I'm in no rush, and I find the posts in this thread rather interesting.

    I absolutely love the plane mode and the bot mode is great too. Tank mode is just good enough. Good transformation and he is built like a brick shithouse (both in terms of proportions and stability in bot mode). I've never seen Ditka in person but if the slightly less toon accuracy doesn't put you off, Gewalt is a winner.

    That's the DNA kit on Devy, right? I won't be able to display my collection for a few more years but bought the DNA kit a few months after my CW Devastator went into storage. If that's the end result I think I'll be a happy boy!

    It's actually mostly the X2 Shadow Fisher kit. But it does have the DNA head and shin pads.

    Just got this guy and I'm impressed. He's built like the Terminator... At least is what he reminds me of. Transformation was surprisingly smooth, and his weapons look awesome. He looks even better with a football. 20180508_115535.jpg 20180508_115522.jpg 20180508_120527.jpg 20180508_115539.jpg 20180508_115958.jpg 20180508_115526.jpg 20180508_120331.jpg 20180508_120522.jpg 20180508_115517.jpg

    Congratz! He's amazingly sturdy, too. He carried around my Ditka after Prime blasted his foot off lol. If they had made his bot mode a little more animation styled, I wouldn't have even bothered with Ditka.

    I am hoping there is some sort of panel created to cover the head whilst in tank mode.

    Hopefully somebody on shapeways has or is willing to create one

    Yeah I'm considering it. It's not a perfect figure but such a low price for a massive triple changer is hard to beat. Sixo in his review had a negative opinion of him but from what I'm hearing the general consensus is positive, right?

    He's a good solid figure !! I have no gripes about mine. He's big, beefy and looks great next to other MP figures. In a way kind, he's kinda superdeformed because he's so big !! But Gewalt is a pretty nice Blitzwing !!
