    I had the original and at a quick glance I would have just thought this was the original. He looks fine but not a need.

    This thing has such a silly design. At the very least they could have improved its janky proportions, it just looks like a cheaper more hollow version of the original toy.

    In hindsight it kinda looks like he killed them but I meant to portray it as them discarding their old bodies for the new form.

    You're right, and since busting it open again this morning and really taking a deeper dive I've found some stuff I missed, a fix for my issues and newfound appreciation for him. Updating the post with 17 new images and some clarification.

    New update to the original post. @Black Convoy could you add the new images to the news post? I think the new additions do him more justice.

    The new photos do him way more justice. Assuming my mispriced Amazon pre-order comes in clutch and I get him for €40, I'll be happy. If it gets cancelled though I don't see myself getting him for full price.

    Because he's still technically in preorder so he's only trickling out now.

    Mmmmmm this might be a case of me preferring the original. I know this is more show accurate but, blue > purple. I'll always prefer the color blue over purple.

    The original fig just pops more at a glance. The bright green feather tips help too.

    The weapons and wings are terribly hollow, but the proportions look WAY better, he has a full chest like the show etc and looks way less bulky. Just wish the beige color was more metallic looking like the show.

    I don't even know if I want this yet. I'm not that far into Beast Wars yet.

    The hollowness is far to egregious looking imo. I am sure he is great but those really drag him down visually. Definitrly getting Razorclaw tho

    The transformation is finicky and has too much "move this to get to that" for me. Plus the chest not closing in beast mode is just no bueno.
    I still have him preordered but I was hoping for more. =\

    He's fine. Issue is that the wings are so damn hollow its like a kids menu tray and some missing deco.
