    Not bad figure for the price, the truck mode is very decent, but these pictures really help me to see how really ugly the figure is in bot mode. For my personally opinion, definitively I won't buy. The chest is too blocky, the groin rotates totally just down the waist (like MP Grimlock) leaving a gap there. The panels behind the forearms and back gives to him a very rectangular shape. The feet still being very small and the legs has too many flat details. In the truck mode, there'are two wheels that don't touches the floor. Is not a bad figure, but now I can see how accurate it isn't.

    Oh yeah I'm feeling this! (If the price is right)

    Personal nitpick: The faceplate looks too greebly with all the lines. I wish they'd only do one or two prominent details like 3A did, would make for a more consistent look.

    have to say it looks pretty good. you can still tell its an SS-38 derivative but its much more accurate. the alt mode looks good but...yeah its the wrong truck...much cleaner than TW. TW's robot mode though still quite a bit better IMO, BUT this this looks much better than just an OS KO SS-38 should! haha

    Looks like they're working on another new headsculpt and it looks a lot better. I have no idea how to get pictures from Instagram so here are some screenshots.

    Does the movie version have 8 or 4 tires at the back?

    The weathering is great, I dunno what y'all are on about. Maybe you don't like weathering but they sure pulled it off here way better than the whole WFC: Siege line.

    The weathering on the legs look good, but on the red parts there's only a few spots weathered and it doesn't seem purposeful. Otherwise the rest of the figure looks completely clean which doesn't work well. IMO Siege does it better since they actually try to go at trying to make it look like battle-wear, instead of putting tiny spots of silver on corners and edges.

    There's no dark weathering on top as well which makes it look sub-par compared to TW's. If they're going to weather it, they have to do it more throughout the figure to make it look good, or go for the clean look. It doesn't look good half-baked.

    So the one thing that dragged the figure down is being fixed? You'd better watch out Toyworld.

    Looks good. I am glad I passed on the WJ version since I knew we would get better ones.

    The quality on the WJ version is top notch. But yeah, it's nice having multiple better options.
