    Wow… An almost 30 year dream, finally in hand. Since seeing him on the pages of the G2 comic, beautifully imagined and rendered by Derek Yaniger; who would’ve ever thought we’d get an accurate figure of him. And a darned good one at that. Beyond excited right now!

    I might see if I can exchange him for another.

    If I were betting, I'd make the same bet.

    It's not a toy I'm interested in, at that point (I already have Metalhawks who are retools... and not really Pretenders), but it's the toy I expect they're going to make.

    Jhiaxus arrived here and safe in a cardboard box!

    Not that Laser Prime and Megatron are happy about it!

    He really is an awesome figure, very happy.

    let's hope this sets a better precedent for more comic characters to see better figure representations.

    Straxus, Impactor, Scrounge looking your way please.

    I hope so! With Straxus I'd be happy with them taking the Generations 2010 figure and upscaling it to Voyager size!

    I just hope Legacy isn't done with the G2 awesomeness yet.

    With Jhiaxus now in hand it ticks a big box for me. I'd love to see a gift set released of some of his Neo-Decepticon minions.

    Just randomly got Jhiaxus in today when Amazon said it was supposed to get in sometime in November. Love the figure but the head on my copy is too loose for my liking. Anyone have this issue too and were able to tighten it up?

    Loose on mine, too. I'm guessing Future or nail polish clear coat, even super glue. Anything to slightly thicken the ball on the joint should do it.

    The head on my version is fine, but with wear I expect he will be a bobbleheaded dictator. Nothing a little floor polish can help though.
