    I don't think the firing mechanism really at fault. The torso are proportioned that way is more because it transform from a long and somewhat thin weapon to begin with. And regarding ab crunch, judging from their previous products, i don't think nbk going to give some, even if that firing mechanism wasn't there.

    You most certainly can design a long rifle with no firing mechanism to a robot with a non-boxy torso. TF figures' engineering has come a long way for me to believe that it isn't possible.

    What other original molds does NBK have? I only know them for their KO Gravity Builder which is not their mold.

    This is a toy that exists entirely for the sake of the gimmick.

    Everything else is secondary to that. That said, this is easily one of the least charismatic robot designs I've ever seen in this industry.

    The head isn't quite there in terms of personality - but the rest of it is uninpeachable to me.

    I agree the white and blue one remind me so much of cybertron Metroplex especially when holding the Pole Axe. Imagine this guy with Cybertron Metroplex's head. I preordered Both

    For those few hating on it. It is an original design with a cheap price tag giving you a giant robot that transforms into an amazing looking sniper rifle. I do not care that is not any specific bot in particular. I do not care about the proportions in robot mode(Look at bots like Cybertron Metrolex)I do not care that it does not have an ab crunch(This is not a $400+ MP here). This company now has 3 bots to its name one of which is a horrible KO. I personally love the Alt mode and the fact that it transforms into a 20" tall bot is awesome. If I can find a Cybertron Metroplex's head I will be swapping out the head on the white and blue one. I preorded both and unless the prices turns out to be more then its worth I intend to have both in my collection.

    Not just about the paint. The black one is a limited edition run, hence the higher price.

    I can't wait for this guy!
    I hope there is a way to increase the tension and make the bullet get more distance.

    I'm in a couple nerf forums and if you can find a spring with higher tension that is the same diameter and maybe a little longer that'll give it more fire power. Assuming you can get into the mechanism to replace the spring and the mechanism can hold the tension.

    I also saw I think on their weibo that the fire power is limited by law, probably chinas law

    That's great to know! Yeah I was thinking the same thing with replacing the spring.

    Once this is out and I have it in hand I was gonna ask in the nerf custom and modding forums what they recommend and I'll report back here too
