    this does so much to make him appealing.

    I completely 180d on him now as the ugly shoulder pads initially ruined the design for me

    Looks fantastic.

    Don’t be like me though….when attempting to put the foot on the sword and moving the outer claws, the foot broke in half on those tiny plastic connectors between the two sides….kind of flimsy there and should have been fully covered on both sides of the movement. Had to superglue them together.

    Just realized this guy would serve as a pretty solid Polar Claw pretool.

    Many similar transformation elements, and even has the shoulder claw.

    Got my Amazon shipping notice earlier today. Odd though, but not complaining, since my previous notice mentioned that the shipping date was only bumped up to 1/28/24.

    The detailings are accurate the panels by the steering wheel and the panels on the right side. Just like the show image showcases

    If I take my glasses off, squint, and throw back a few shots it might look accurate...

    What are you smoking? It's literally all there, just unpainted.

    He has a fully sculpted and painted torso grill that thanks to transformation is covered up by a second smaller and unpainted fake grill that's located on the backside of the truck one. 20231215_060914.jpg

    My point being that it's really just two small blocks of details slapped onto the back of his chest piece that reference the actual look with significant compromises. Don't get me wrong, it's cool that they threw it in there because they absolutely didn't have to, but calling it "accurate" seem like quite a stretch.

    I'd say it's more "representative" than it is "accurate."

    That being said, having an interior with Optimus's head sitting between the seats is hilariously fun.

    United is 2/2 so far. Thundertron is awesome. My only complaints are I prefer the older ones shoulders and the very limited ankle joints but otherwise he's amazing. Ironically my favorite of the prime figures and he wasn't even in the show. Can't wait till pulse ships Optimus and the rest. Hopefully they'll do some more Prime guys next year.

    We definitely have different standards for what counts as accurate.
    I guess they're accurate in the sense that they give a clear impression of what they are supposed to be.
    But they're also flattened, spread out and largely unpainted.

    I'm fine with it since your never gonna see it and only will for transformation.

    I just think it's cool detailing that's all I'm saying. Wasn't needed to make the figure great but they did it and I appreciate it.

    I just pulled out my original Thundertron to compare against this new one. I *love* the original colors and wish this new figure had the brighter look of the OG.

    Is there a specific, pre-mixed color in any hobby paint line that would match "energon blue" ? I'd love to plus up the current Thundertron with some OG details.
