    Found on my door step this afternoon from @ShowZStore , mft Poison, was well packed and safely arrived. nice little figure, not a character I'm that familiar with apart from his brief appearance in the ghost of starscream but I like it, transformation is straightforward enough, ended up getting ahead of the instructions it was that intuitive what came next.

    I came here to say the same exact thing, this is perfect scale with MS/NA.

    IF MFT is going down this path of complimenting MS, I say scale down Red Alert and Sideswipe with a better plactic and a bit of an upgrade NOW !!!!!!!

    So for those who have their astrotrain and this guy. Think blitzwing will feel more like which?

    I think this guy is way more refined. Hoping the same for blitzwing

    Kinda like the wings down look too

    If they make Blitzwing the size of this guy its kinda going to retroactively ruin Astrotrain.

    Mine arrived today.

    Have transformed it from truck to bot and had a quick play. Seems okay, except for one thing that immediately leapt out at me as I unpacked it - MFT have gone all horribly hollow HasTak with the gun. What the hell? I look at Astrotrain's gun, and then back at Octane's, and wonder what changed at MFT between those releases...

    Given the premise Octane is an aesthetically peculiar-looking bot, I feel like this is the best MFT figure among those I own.

    I'm seriously impressed, folks. Solid, QC-issues free, featuring a level of finish and posability that I've never experienced with the MechFansToys Legends in my possession. I agree with those saying this is a remarkable step-up from Astrotrain, which only makes me more excited for Blitzwing.

    Just occurred to me that Astrotrain had three decos. Are there other viable decos for Octane and Blitzwing? I guess it lowers the revenue for each of these molds to not have more variations... even myself where I prefer to not double dip, still got two Astrotrains.

    Blitzwing has the Overcharge/Diaclone deco they could do. But Octane really just has the one deco. They COULD do a more toy-focused version with chromed wings and tanker parts. Maybe include a new non-transforming wing-shield accessory.

    If they REALLY wanted to go obscure, they could do a redeco based on this early prototype:

    such high praise for a derpy looking bot. maybe it would be different if i saw it in person. but as it sits this mold just doesnt interest me at all.

    i especially cant see it being a better bot that astrotrain. but everyone has thier own opinion. im glad you really like it.

    Nono, I would never venture to say it's a better looking bot than Astrotrain, but yeah I do really believe this Octane stands out as a higher quality figure overall.

    Was a bit of a pain to pull the two half's apart after taking the screw out the first time but was okay after that
