    Ok.
    Better?

    -------

    Between this, the inevitable Razorclaw, Thundertron, and the likely Alpha Trizer and Leo Prime repaints...I'm going to have so many goddamn cats in my collection.

    I could see it being placed on the purple section between the stomach and waist but I'm really happy with how the engineering and part placement was thought out already.

    Last reply for the night, but with the helmeted beast mode head and some adjustments to the tolerances I'd be in love 100%. At that stage the only flaw would be wrist limitations.

    I’ve never bought a gap-filler set in my life, but the purple chunks of the wings are dire. They’ll be much better once corrected. That said I love how this looks overall. God just having them in the right colors still feels unreal.

    No, it was for you. I was hoping they did the helmeted alt mode head at some point, as shown here. Other part of it was referring to how they adjust tolerances sometimes on new releases of molds.

    I'd need to refresh my memory but my guess is the helmet got left behind because it wasn't in the show. Which is a shame as it was a neat concept. That said, DNA will absolutely get on that. And who knows, maybe it's something we'll see o the Razorclaw repaint?

    The original's wing assembly didn't look great, but man it looks even sloppier here. Otherwise seems like it's done pretty well, but even with nostalgia for having the original and intimate knowledge of that figure's flaws, there's not a lot to make me that excited about this guy.

    This is a "maybe on clearance" purchase at best.

    They even mold in fake 3rd mode wheels onto his wings. Cool.

    IIRC, when I was looking at the stock photos back then, it has the tab on the head already for that added helmet. Definitely either a toy color or Razorclaw version will give it to us. Most likely Razorclaw as the purple works with the normal's colors

    He can't anymore. He took it back to the store.

    Is it just me, or do those instructions not look quite as awful as usual?

    To exchange it for another one. Comparisons with the Kingdom-Legacy S1 BW cast, Legacy Lio Convoy and Encore Big Convoy coming tomorrow. I'll throw in Vintage Primal and Megatron for good measure.

    Aside from one or two steps they were quite easy to follow, which was great considering I couldn't figure them out when I first unpacked.

    It's 4am here but since this is when most of y'all are awake I'll try to answer any more questions when notified. Quite a few other Australians in my area have gotten their Tigerhawks in today but they're mostly in the Facebook communities rather than here.

    I'm thinking the shoulder on my current copy is bringing them down way too much. it's ridiculously tight on the actual arm joint and loose on the transformation joint which leads to them breaking their arm every time I bend it inwards.

    Maybe Hasbro has been listening to some feedback and is finally doing something about that. The ones for MPM Bonecrusher were atrocious and difficult to read, so would be nice if they'd be better moving forward.

    Tigerhawk uses "he/him/his" pronouns.

    Looks decent but a subtle wash could’ve brought out the fine details on the white plastic. Will probably get this and I’ve got a feeling it’ll be more fun to pose in beast mode than robot mode.

    Ooof... the gaps are a bit worse than I originally thought. Someone's going to have to make a filler kit for this guy. He otherwise looks fantastic, they're just so out there.
