    HLJ is excellent, but I hate the fact that they declare full value on all packages; I had to pay $10 in customs fees for my G2 SS because of that :(  Still, the cheap shipping and great service are more than worth it.

    I finally broke down and ordered this guy.

    This figure is 90's comic books.

    Black repaint? Check.
    Bigger, spiker shoulderpads? Check
    Meaner/darker/grittier disposition? Check
    Moar Impractically Huge Gunz? Check

    This figure needs to be proudly displayed anytime there is a display or presentation on Marvel Comics in the 90's.

    I don't know why, but I really think that G2 Sideswipe's face would make a neat "berserk face" for Red Alert.

    Is anyone else having trouble folding away the handle on one of the spike-wheels?

    Care to post a link? I'd really like to see it. I've seen face swaps of this figure, but only with Tigertrack.

    EDIT - Nevermind. Came across one via Seibertron. Wow, that really works.

    Don't beat yourself up. It just proves that I need to click on that thread more often.

    No trouble with the handle. Just mine came with two left spike wheels.

    I really like how they did this guy to reflect the comic book. Not getting him as i have to be really selwctive when it comes to $60+ toys. They teally should have him packaged with a g2 comic to show just how amazing he is.

    I thought I had that problem at first. And then I realized that the tabs aren't supposed to fold away.

    They're jointed to allow his shoulders full movement. Otherwise, the pegs are supposed to remain straight. One of the tabs winds up with enough clearance to collapse all the way inwards, which was the confusing part, while the other wheel has the tab blocked by the mounting slot for attaching the wheel to the gun (for vehicle mode storage).

    But nope, both tabs just stay straight, and there's a square socket in each wheel for the other's peg to tab into.

    Hmm. What are some of these too-good-to-be-true prices? I checked ebay, and it looks like the typical price is $65. I got mine for about that much, with free shipping, and it's legit.
