    Looks like a pretty damn good toy. The helicopter mode is outstanding, and the robot mode looks mostly great as well. My one worry is how well the robot mode holds together, since the slabs the shoulders are attached to seem to kinda hang there. I don't much like the head sculpt, mostly because it's 'style' and level of detail are inconsistent with the rest of the toy, and ends up looking like a wrinkly raisin sitting on the robot's shoulders.

    Still, it's a must-buy, as I can't resist a nice copter TF.

    I say, that's rather spiffing.

    Aside from the tail dragging along behind him. But you can't have everything.

    Cool. Like the color, simple. Voyager Class I assume.
    quick question: does it come with Mini-Scorponok or its just to compare sizes?

    I'm with the 'best helicopter TF evah' crowd, with Bulkhead coming in a close second still. That thing is fantastic.

    Beautiful! I like the fact that his isignia is right there on his chest. I only hope the movie version looks like that. I gotta say, this is the first movie toy I can say without hesitation that I will buy. Bravo, Hasbro!

    Now I think the big questions here are

    1.) does anyone else notice how the face kinda looks like this character was originally intended to be soundwave?

    2.) and if it was made to be sound wave would anyone object to it?

    When you think about it this character had the potential to carry frenzy and rumble in the cockpit, scorponok very well could of been designed to be ravage which is the engine and hell laserbeak could come from anywhere on that design. Plus that emp blast in the trailer actually acts more like a Shockwave ( i know its a differant character ) making a low sound and emp doesnt shatter things and throw them around but a sonic blast would.

    Just gotta say kudos to the coolest TF in the movie lets hope he lives for the sequel , no spoilers pleaze. :)

    Actually I think it's bigger then the $20 class by a fair margin, much more likely to be $25.

    Heh, in most comic/cartoon/action-movie world I've seen, emp blasts cause concussive damage and often times lead to explosions :p

    ya most emp blast in the movie are preceeded by an explosion because its in a warhead for some reason lol. But honestly look at our source material we are pulling this from. The most realistic emp blast in a movie would be the matrix for reference.

    gotta love hollywood they live in an alternate universe over there :)

    There were rumors very early on in the movie's production that movie Soundwave would be a helicopter so it's not inconceivable that Blackout was indeed meant to be Soundwave at one point.

    They're now saving Soundwave for a potential sequel since the movie's creators felt they didn't want to do Soundwave until they could fit him in in a way that would do him justice.

    From the very first shots I wanted this. Having seen it in color just makes me want it even more. Damn this is one sexy TF.

    I must agree with the “best helicopter” comments. :thumb 
    A Springer repaint would look sweat next to him, if we get movie repaints. Consider this one bought.

    Amazing looking. The colors look good to me. It may be darker in the movie, then again it may be the lighting and filters used in the movie to make it appear darker. Either way, this mold looks incredible, minus the back kibble.

    Too much junk hanging off of his back, and that head is terrible. Really just kind of crap looking all around.
