    Didn't see a thread for this guy after a lot of searching, but I finally got and opened mine, so I thought I'd shared a few thoughts.

    He's bigger than I expected him to be. Maybe I just wasn't translating the stated measurements well in my head or maybe the phrase "Legends scale" being bandied about confused me, but he's about the size of your average deluxe Generations toy.

    Good articulation, including neck, shoulders, elbow, hips, and knees (though no swivel). He has no wrist articulation, so sadly no hammer twirling. No waist articulation, but he has an upper torso swivel.

    Paint job's excellent and the level of detail makes him look very steampunkish.

    Transformation is not terribly complex, though the instructions leave out a lot of steps and are written in slight engrish. I do caution that he has a few steps where it feels like there's very limited clearance, but nothing that feels like it's going to break.

    Train mode is nice and the wheels spin freely.

    This guy is one of my favorites! BTW, those small panels on the back in alt mode close to fill in the gaps on the boiler.

    I'll be back

    Love this guy, but do wish that he came with an IDW Centrion head with grilled mouthplate
