    I'd have to agree. But La Hire has a more accurate head sculpt.

    But if he scales well with Challenger and Peru Kill I may get him because Evo looked too tall.

    However Evo is more accurate looking at the stomach and hips. La Hire just had generic ratchet hips whereas Evo has the detail especially with the tubes.

    Perfection! Thanks, I'll be painting it like that if I get this version.

    I just wish UT would step up their sculpt detail. It's pretty amateurish and looks bad compared to TFEvo, aside from the head. There are things to like about both of them, though.

    UT sculpting detail seems really shallow to me. I suspect that this is a result of the turn-it-inside-out transformation strategy that they are using for the movie designs.

    I suspect the thick lower legs are also due to this.

    I set that DX9 pic as my new computer desktop background. Holy hell is it eyecandy. The only way things will go south from here is because physical products tend to be somewhat inferior to digital product representations

    Is this the first unofficial Human Alliance TLK toy? It will probably be closer to Peru Kill size (Voyager) to scale with Peru-kill and Human alliance maybe?

    UT/DX-9 has the better looking alt mode with awesome fit and finish plus loads of paint. TFEVO has the better proportioned and therefore accurate bot mode with the exception of the strangely sculpted, under-painted head. If money was no object, I'd get both and display UT in alt mode but swap out their heads and have TFEVO in bot mode.

    I love that this is less accurate to the movie design because the movie design is shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. Seems all the right little decisions were made to elevate and improve on it as I like this interpretation much more.

    The additional silver, the less messy abdomen, those awesome hinge details in front of the knees even, the slightly stockier proportions. All much welcome deviations. Would love to see him in traditional pink, yellow and orange now too.

    I'll have to check out the reviews once people start getting them in hand. It may come down to price.

    For me, it's all about accuracy > gimmicks. The TFEVO one looks mind-blowingly beautiful! It doesn't even look like it can transform and that's what pushes that one over this one. The UT version has way too many exposed holes and hinges. That might have been fine if it existed in a vacuum, but with TFEVO's, that won't cut it.

    I also prefer TFEvo Version.

    In Fact it is strange...TFEvo Version is what i had expected from Unique Toys, with all that moving Fingers.

    The 3rd Party War concerning the Movie Line has now begun, and the 3rd Party Combiner Wars comes nearly to an End.

    Iam so excited which Company is more faster in creating the remaining Characters like Galvatron, TLK Megatron, Crosshairs, Drift and Bumblebee

    Can someone make hot Rod\'s submachine gun? There has been the time stopper, yet I also want to see the underrated weapon.
