    Absolutely hate the chest. Now for you that have this in hand can you no longer fold up the front bumper because the backpack is terrible with it down

    Honestly, i don't even know my own thoughts on it. I took those shots, headed to work, and that's the extent of my messing with it. It'll be at least friday-sat before I can mess with it again but admittedly came out of that limited time with it pretty apathetic.

    I still love it as a throwback companion piece to city Commander, plus i still love my Henkei prime. I actually sold Orion to go back to it as my CHUG prime

    outraged we still haven't seen this pulling the g3 trailer

    I was actually vaguely interested in this when it was in the prototype stage too. But it just looks so ugly and the Powermaster Prime coming up just renders it even more useless.

    The video actually makes the alt mode look a lot better than I thought. Would love to see it with the G3 Trailer also.

    I still think the head is amazing. One of the best FP has done to date and I am liking the robot more and more as I see it. He is still a little thin maybe but I can overlook that. it is a lot taller than I thought, especially next to CW Prime!

    Thanks Peaugh.

    The head looks fantastic, but I'm not feeling the rest of it. This is honestly the first FP mold I have no interest in. I even still prefer the original City Commander vs the other add on armor coming out.

    I'm still gonna hold my reservations until I saw this in black but looking at you guys comments, it might not make it to that.

    Am I seriously the only person excited for these sets? Yeah it's a little dated, but it looks like a lot of fun and I have the perfect spot for both of them. I really hope these get enough support so that we eventually get a Nemesis version (Tokyo not SDCC)

    Agreed on both TJ's pics and Peaugh's review. My favorite photographer and favorite reviewer and this figure still doesn't look good in my eyes. They make it look decent, but nowhere near the asking price IMO.

    I used to be all over this but now I'm not so sure anymore, It kinda sucks because I really wanted to get it, perhaps the Magnus version will look better. I even got a Classics Prime just for this kit

    Agree with this. Fansproject missed the mark here for me.

    I might get this if the price is right. I have a spare Classics Prime that's missing a gun that this would be perfect for, but with the overall design being kind of meh I'm not sure how much I'm willing to invest in it.

    Fansproject, quietly going the way of the dodo.

    Instead of finishing Highbrow for the only line that still makes them matter, they came out with this.

    What? Their claim to fame for me is the warbot line.

    Agreed! Can't wait for Alpha Trianix!

    As for this, I guess I have bad taste because I think this looks pretty good. Can't wait to display next to city commander and protector.

    The sad part of this is we haven't received repaints of Steelcore nor Assaulter

    Let's not get carried away. This may be the worst 3rd party toy I can think of, but this is still just one toy. Everything else they've done and are doing is aces.
