    Mad jelly he’s shipping for peeps.

    Never owned the original but I’m super hype to get this guy. Really grown to love the Beast Wars Neo/II designs and baddies.

    Meanwhile Hasbro Pulse pushes the date back again, April 18th now.

    I wouldn't mind if they hadn't send me the notification that payment was about to be charged and the item would ship out - 2 weeks ago.

    Just got mine!!!

    All in all, a really fun figure with solid build quality and great engineering. I only wish the back of the Magmasaurus mode was a little bit more covered up and cohesive.

    When it comes to articulation, a forearm swivel would have made the shield a little bit less unwieldy. Also, for some reason, the (forwards/backwards) ankle joint gets locked in bot mode as well by the extra detail pieces.

    Still, a phenomenal update to the original in my opinion.

    Thanks for sharing, nice pics. I wonder if the chimera mode was included in the instructions or is that something we have to figure out on our own?

    Do the shield and sword have other places to store in bot mode? This guy looks insane, can't wait.

    mines still not dispatched from Amazon but it should get here in the next week, if I'm lucky he'll arrive the 14th, really curious to see how it transforms.

    A couple of size comparisons! He’s very fiddly out of the box, looks like he’s been shoved in there. But once you’ve worked him out he’s great

    the wings and sword are flexible plastic and sadly the sword isn’t the nice gold from the renders, but a gunmetal

    wings were also quite bent out of the box, but the red swords help straighten them out

    Mark mentioned there's a hinge that can be used to do something like an ab crunch? Would either of you be able to show that in action maybe?

    I’m trying to transform him right now and I’m seeing nothing like an ab crunch

    EDIT: tell a lie, there’s a double hinge at the waist:

    The sea dude is pretty simple, just folding up the arms then putting the shield on.
    The Giga thought…oof. Transformation is good for the most part, but damn plugging in the sword hilt is unnecessarily difficult due to the angle you need to get it in. And if it’s not in properly you will not be able to plug everything in.

    the Dino modes are massive. The giga is pretty much the same size as beast wars Megs’ T-Rex. The articulation is nowhere near as good, the jaw goes no lower than it is in my photos. The legs are stacked with joints and the tail is good, but nothing else sadly, and if you move the legs too much you’ll reveal all the inner robot bits as there’s a perfect cut out for it

    Once people get there’s in hand, can they do a comparison with Reissue Big Convoy if possible?

    Looks frikking amazing and fortunately not big enough to make the scale with the likes of Big Convoy seem off.

    Wish mine shipped already.

    What, were you expecting a Jetfire rival, or something?

    He's still decently tall, but also deep and dense.

    I was expecting him to be smaller than he is, he's not quite as tall as Legacy Menasor but he isn't far off 20240412_105454.jpg
