    I REALLY like everything about him aside from the faux cockpit piece on the chest. It’s so miscolored form the real one and is bothering me.

    Also, Prime vs Prime says it’s not a big deal that he can’t hold the blaster well but I disagree. Even if he didn’t use it in the movie, I think he should be able to hold it well as it is the primary weapon in robot mode.

    Overall, one of my most anticipated figure of 2021.

    I'm hugely surprised that, despite appearances, he looks to be entirely unique from Blitzwing. No parts carry-over whatsoever.

    Looks like a stand-out figure. Seems really solid in hand. Wings look like they might have been troublesome, but the way PvP handles the figure makes it seem like they snap firmly into position.

    Man that jet mode looks like utter crap. You would think with all the modern tooling engineering and such they could make a jet mode that isnt full of bottom kibble.

    The bottom kibble is actually accurate

    It's kinda wild that the Cybertronian Seeker Jet altmodes look a lot like Terran Wraith from Starcraft.

    This looks like it's on the larger side of the voyagers class figures.

    Complaining about "the tooling" of a screen accurate alt mode on a toy is hilarious.

    Then complain about the movie design, not the toy. Toy is doing its job.

    Well, not like the toy is perfect. It's supposed to be more like a third wing under there, and not robot arms. But the movie CG can fold and cheat in impossible ways that can't be replicated in plastic, so they did well enough, IMO.

    I find the alt mode to be really fun-looking. It isn't aerodynamic in the least, but doesn't need to be. It's a fast, beefy gunship and for that I appreciate the design.
    Really looking forward to this one.

    I'm not complaining, the toy is fine, looks like an alien space jet. But it is definitely a fugly looking space jet (and Starscream's rather plain colors don't much help).

    I've been hoping Studio explores some of the concept stuff that never got to the screen.

    And, honestly, I can't believe they wouldn't sell Blitzwing in Starscream colors. Seems a worthwhile repaint effort that could, if popular, spawn a whole bunch of Seekers and stretch that mold out.

    Yeah, as @mx-01 archon said, I don't think the blame should totally be removed from the toy as the bottom wing is supposed to be way sleeker than what we see on the figure (like in the image below). However, it does look pretty good in terms of trying to create a figure from a low mass alt mode.
