    @WreckerImpactor is a damn genius. Regarding Legacy Jhiaxus weapon storage in alt-mode:

    Amazon got me a replacement in 1 day, not bad!

    Also all the joints are tight on this one, even the head which is still loose, is tighter than the prior one. I can't wait to see what Toyhax does here.

    I'd been watching him on Amazon waiting for the price to drop back down to $31.49 and it just did so I snatched him up!
    Seeing him with the G2 Seekers makes me want to pick those up. I suppose I still might eventually if we never get rereleases of the other Coneheads...

    I thought this thing looked weird and ugly when it was first announced, a garishly colored mess that turns into nothing in particular. In a way I think thats still true, but in the best way possible. This dude is awesome. The pictures don't capture how great the metallic yellow paint looks, the alt mode is solid and sufficiently plane-like, the bot mode has presence thats off the charts. I greatly appreciate his face-imploding grimace that suggests he is just done with everything.

    This may be slightly off topic but did you have any issues returning it despite it being opened? I'm hesitant to return things unless they're noticeably defective, but my copy is similar to yours - some unpleasantly loose joints and some face slop - so I'm considering a return.

    I'd be interested in the G2 Ramjet if it didn't have the potential to discolor. My copy of G2 Sandstorm is noticeably yellowing at the forearms and hands, and there have been similar reports with the G2 Ramjet unfortunately.

    I’ve had no issues returning or exchanging open toys before. I’ve gotten a defective Hot Rod from Game Stop and had no issues either exchanging it. The only issue I’ve had was with Hasbro, because I bought it from another seller on Amazon.

    I've yet to get this figure since it seems weird. Is it really that good?

    its weird all right. its fun though. plastic feels like earthrise era and very thin in places.. the days of seige optimus are gone. if this thing was made of sturdier stuff and tighter pins. it would be a 8/10

    It’s a really weird in a good way figure, it’s a lot better than it has any right being, like one of those Voyager class Leader figures. Like I’m surprised they did just add in some filler stuff and make it a leader, and it would suit the character better than say Blitzwing. Articulated hands, covers for all the hollow parts and really dynamic poses, besides the alt mode being a little blah (though still fulfilling its role), it’s a 9 out of 10. Can’t wait what Toyhax does for him.

    Saw a youtube short where a fan showed the front of the green/red sensor on the shoulder actually pops off to let it fold up better in plane mode or be folded away in robot mode.

    Then the detatched sensor actually plugs into the back of the red gun for storage.

    There’s a description and a photo in a post a few above this one - the red gun can be plugged in backwards to the top of the alt mode and it makes it arguably more accurate to the comics.

    This figure really is a love letter to fans, and corrects virtually ever minor fan concern of recent years:

    1. Gaps - multi part upper limbs mean no natural gaps/waffling. Hinged/rotating forearm and lower leg panels are natural gap fillers.

    2. Stumpy legs - dude has legs for days.

    3. Size value - he’s a tall, hefty Voyager.

    The relative simplicity of his design and transformation has really allowed the team to maximize the impact of the parts count and focus on his amazing sculpt and presence.
