    Okay, one more question. The box says something about a robot fitting in the cockpit.....What robot is it talking about?

    Could be a diaclone driver, but I don't have an Ancestrod yet to really discern whether that was the case or not. It might be something that comes down the line(If the line takes off, but we've not seen any new T-Beasts designed by them.), or a part that was canceled. I saw EMGO's review and he also made mention of the empty cockpit and I don't see anywhere in the tray for it, nor anything in this thread about it. Anyone got a Neo Diaclone driver or KO Diaclone driver and an Ancestrod to check?

    *googles diaclone driver*
    Huh. I have one of those. I'll try and find the little guy and check.
    (Always wanted to know where he was from)

    edit: I think so, judging how the little feet slot in perfectly. downside is that the cockpit can't close while he's in it.

    I think Red Bull stands out against the rest though. I was never a fan of non-vehicle TFs. I love RB though, because of how much his robot mode still resembles his MP robot mode, for the most part. The rest all look like Predacons. Im considering Ancestrod, but I dunno...not much true to Rodimus's bot mode...

    Ancestrod looks the most 'Predaconny', but he's a great figure.

    it's the way of this display, Ancestrod is a impressive looking figure with nice size.

    So I recently got this guy and just went to transform him today, only to find both of the forearm bits that make the lower animal legs are stuck. They will not slide down to cover the hands. Anyone had this problem?

    So, reading of the qc issues some people had, is he worth it for $77.50 from Ali?

    Ended up getting him, he's pretty cool, in both modes. Just wish he could hold his weapons better.

    The shoulder and hip ratchets scare me, they are extremely uneven in how they work, tend to seize up often and generally feel like I'm grinding the plastic teeth to dust. Am I missing something? Is there some special way to move them, like pulling them apart a bit before rotating them?

    Exactly. Pull them ever so slightly while rotating.
