    Toyworld/Zeta combiners can splay out the fingers :) 
    At that size, the individual digits are substantial enough to support another joint for sideways movement.

    :confused:  Stopped reading after Tiny arms. Yeah... no. His arms are great. Do you expect him to have Primal Prime arms?

    I think maybe he is comparing the arms to legs proportions on both figures

    Yea, I like him but his legs and feet are a lil janky to me. I like what mmc is doing so I like to support this kinda stuff.

    I do think i like the look of him over my UT. Brawl and swindle are the only 2 of that set i have and zeta is perma combined mode on my shelf. Mmc I think overall have great individual bot modes so that's what they'll be for me.

    Well if you had kept reading, you'd also note how Fraudo's jeep mode has a ton of undercarriage junk that mess from his profile when seen from the side. A jeep doesn't have that, or ride so low to the ground... That's kind of the entire point of one!

    That's exactly the case. Fraudo has thin arm (not so much short as thin), but a gigantically wide and thick torso, and huge boots. The thinness of his arms looks wildly out of proportion to the size of his chest and the size of his legs to my eye. An issue UT's version does not suffer from.

    I can live with those shortcommings. The colors are on point, and he's fun to transform.

    I still find it weird how Impetus has a perfectly normal bicep swivel on his left arm but the right one barely moves. I guess cause it’s more accurate to the helicopter or something, but it seems like a bit of an oversight to me.

    Oh wow I never even noticed till you've pointed it out. I wouldn't say barely though it can do a full 90 inwards axis rotation. And yes it appears to be entirely down to the helicopter specific sculpting resulting in asymmetrical shoulder pieces. Full rotation on the right would demand less tail sculpt accuracy for the chopper.

    Ironic considering the number 1 criticism of him and Fraudo has basically boiled down to "I wanted these toys to look like scale models and not animated characters". :lol

    Oh well yeah that’s true, the inwards movement is good on both. It just feels so weird when I just wanna sit down and play but I can’t move it the way I want to. And considering the secret tricks that actually make him move and convert in a smooth manor I’m a bit surprised nothing was though of. But it’s a small area to work in so I don’t blame them.

    Its the entire story of this set and what makes it so interesting. Very specific design considerations for specific features have been major factors in everything about how it looks and works and that's naturally lead to a lot of very divisive and severe criticism for so much of that unavoidable aesthetic.

    Makes me wonder what people are going to think of Brawl, because every one of these toys has an aspect to them that's like huh, that's a little odd looking? don't usually see that with mps etc.

    Meanwhile I'm over here chewing on my fingers waiting for gorilla arm to end all gorilla arms Helex to finally see production.

    Just got my Fraudo today (you get what you pay for with free shipping). Thoughts and comparisons with UT and Zeta to come.

    Zeta is only good for combined mode. UT is only good for crying about because it didn't end up being as tall as Zeta when combined.

    Well yeah, if that's your bag. I just remember some people actually thinking the UT set was going to be 20" tall.
