    Just got mine today. Yup, he’s awesome. Looking at him in robot mode he looks like he wouldn’t transform. Excellent quality, very premium. I definitely think the value is there considering what you get.

    I’m not used to figures with this much diecast, took me a little bit to get used to it :) 

    I hope this line is successful and we see a bunch more.

    Just transformed mine again for the second time blind. After the first round it’s pretty intuitive and fun. Just wish some of the panels on the side of the cab lined up a little better I still believe this is light years ahead of SS bee movie prime.

    Got mine last week, pretty happy with it. I don't have a problem with figure scales in general, I actually like it being so small and yet so detailed. The right thigh also seems a bit loose, like another poster earlier said, not sure if it's a common issue... that's probably my only complaint. Got the batteries and put them in, so cool.

    This was supposed to arrive yesterday but fedex is shitty so I should be getting it today. Watch them mark it as undeliverable AGAIN today.... It's like they can tell when you really actually want something and decide to put in less effort to make you suffer :(

    Got me a Lemon today. Colors are SUPER dark, like think SS05 dark. And the hands were oddly sticky out of the box, but that went away. And the neck panel doesn't tab in or anything so when I go to move the head the neck comes off the body a lot. Aside from those small nitpicks he seems really fun and solid.

    And he fits in my pocket!

    Some size comparisons:

    Guess it's just me in this thread, but can anyone confirm that there isn't any weapon storage in alt mode?

    Sorry for quoting a old post but I have to agree with you. For 100$ I can get figure like Challenger, MPM Prime OSKO, MPM Screamer, MPM Styled Bumblebees, MPM Megatron, MPM Jazz and others. For 200$ I can get figures like Dragoon, Knight Orion, Freedom Leader, Devil Savior constructions, Zeta Toys Blitzwing ( even though price is assumption ). I think 70$ is the most I can pay for this figure and still feel a bit expensive.

    Yeah I paid $70 through showz and that felt a like a lot. However the figure does not disappoint so although objectively I feel $70 is too much I’m also happy with my purchase. Here’s a couple more pics:

    Getting rid of mine. It’s just too dark and the head & front leg panels not tabbing into place ended up bothering me more than I thought it would. Overall I was impressed for a first offering and if LT does another run with some revisions (better colors, non sticky hands, more tabs and better tolerances) I’ll likely check it out. I feel like they could also leave out the LEDs and most people wouldn’t care. They just end up looking like blue nipples anyway. :/

    I want to know about the sticky hands. Does the stickiness go off after some time?

    I’ve had mine for a few weeks now out in the open in a heated (and uncomfortably dry) room and the hands are still sticky. It may go away after more time, I don’t know.

    I think Shmoptimus said it went away on his fairly quickly so it might on yours, too.
