    Yeah I just don’t see much of any other figures from him, apart from a comic version or maybe Battletrap.

    I just ordered Saltus from BBTS. I hope he's as good as all the hype.

    He definitely is. It has HELLA personality and is beautifully built.

    I'll vouch for Saltus. Great figure that's as good to look at as it is to play around with. XTBs version had better be pretty spectacular to beat this one.

    I’ll add my voice to the choir. He was one of my favorite things right out of the box. Perfect blend of good materials, articulation, good looks, engineering, good transformation, with the only compromises being minimal ones to the alt modes.

    I love everything about this figure. Materials, build and tolerances, engineering. Out of the box, its one of the most satisfying purchases I've made. Even the changes to alt mode were for the better, and actually improves the distinct profile between car and helicopter.

    This one looks quite good but I am waiting for Virtus, because Saltus is quite heavy and it doesn't have strong joints... So it's a pass for me.

    Saltus's joints are ridiculously tight and strong.

    That's a "your mileage will vary" deal. I've had some of his joints get floppy but fixing them is as easy as tightening a screw.

    Get this if you like a robot that's well articulated.

    Do NOT get this if you are looking for toon accurate alt modes because they are totally inaccurate. Not saying they are bad alt modes, but they are not no matter what people are trying to say ... inaccurate. And yes that includes the copter mode.

    Also get this if you like flipping back and forth among all the modes.

    Knees are not ratcheted. That's not your mileage might vary thing, so certain poses might be problematic.

    Edit: Copter mode is probably 50% accurate.

    I thought the copter mode was pretty close. Is it that far off?

    The front part is close enough but the back part is totally off. So perhaps 50/50 is more accurate?

    It's no worse then any of the other MP Springers currently out there. XTB Virtus might beat them all but so far it's vaporware.

    Wow. 6 MP scaled options for 1 character. I think that's a record.

    It's worse than the FansToys one in my opinion. The later looks like a Cybertronian helicopter. This one looks like a bot that turns into a helicopter just because of how visible the legs are.
