    All these in hand pics are making me want to grab a second copy…he looks downright incredible. If he feels as good in hand as Trailbreaker does this is MP of the year. That box size though yeesh, my closet is already pretty full of MP boxes. Not sure I can fit that one.

    He's looking good. Have to have him in hand to feel how sturdy he is. Phoenix has great shelf presence but posing is limited, and what you can get him to do looks a little rigid, while MP here looks more natural. But looking forward to comparing the two in hand.

    I thought the same thing, but after watching the transformation video, I can see why the area under the vents needs to be flat. the sides flip in.

    Just wish it at least did not have the molding outlines and was just smooth.

    It just has so much other compacting magic going on that I can over look this one area.

    This might be my favorite MP mold just to look at at least since Shockwave. The fact that it also looks so playable and fun is a bonus.

    Rarely have I been so eager to not only have a few hundred dollars charged to my card but also needing to find a spot for a very big boy on my already overcrowded display. :D

    I don\'t even collect MP figures, and I want one. He just looks so...tasty lol. 

    comparison pics of this high end figure are also reminding just how well they did with the commander version. The fact that I think the WFC version straight up looks better in so many ways, at a fraction of the cost, is a job well done on Hasbro\'s part.

    For that one joint people are having trouble with, hopefully there is a trick to it to be able to release it more easily. Sometimes you have to twist or rotate to help it along. If not, hopefully it’s just the first time releasing it that causes trouble.

    This figure looks so good and I’m dreading the long wait time until I get it. I really hate the distribution for TT Mall exclusives.

    Lol, this is fantastic! I absolutely love how they made it so you could put the mini figure's in the cockpit! Overall, I'm happy still with my Siege JF, but this is amazing and awesome to look at!

    MP Skyfire looks great in both modes.

    Surprised that the mini Jazz was not coloured correctly in the face and hands. Optimus and Wheeljack are fine.

    The fact that his face mask actually has a transparent visor is so cool

    Fun fact: Nakiri and Botan on the wings actually increases Skyfire\'s net speed.

    I know that\'s not true, I just wanted to mention Nakiri and Botan on the wings. It\'s cool. I\'d pick up those plushes if I saw them.

    As for the Skyfire, I have the Siege one, and I don\'t collect MP, so I\'m not picking this up. That gives one more person a chance to get one. So, good luck for anyone who wants to find it.

    Maybe someone will design a plate with mechanical details to put under the transparent part.

    I want to say are odds of getting an Omega Supreme and mini figures, may have possibly increased based on the reaction to this release.
