    That looks good. For RiD Grimlock's colors anyway.

    I don't believe it does.

    The standard articulation for these seems to be neck, shoulders, elbows and hips. They only have working knees when it's necessary for the transformation.

    You can't just tell people that they are wrong without telling them what they are supposed to like instead

    So I bought these guys last night. They are starting to pop up on Brazilian retailers. Cost me about 27 USD each...

    They are but big legends, no knee articulations, (except for Megatron) no arms and legs swivel (Optimus has biceps swivels), plastic is pretty good and very resistent though.

    Boxes are quite simple, no manual instructions included and Starscream came out with one null ray missing, which made me return him to the toyshop and ask for another one.

    If you somehow buy 'em online, ask for the seller to open up the box and check if they are complete.

    They are very cool, even though they are simplified, and they scale well with most of CHUGS figures.

    I'll probably try to articulate and customize them.

    They have great potential to fill up some gaps regarding the scale of some CHUGS figure (specially the seekers), but Hasbro drop the ball by not putting articulations enough on them. They are more destined to small kids...

    Grimlock is out too, I just did not like him. I couldn't find Bumblebee though...

    There are two other apparently bigger Optimus and Bumblebee figures though. (Already reviewed by an Canadian fellow a couple weeks ago)

    Why no knees? I mean seriously, guys. I'm not even going to touch these now, that's ridiculous.

    So close yet so far.


    Bicep swivels would've made Megatron a must have for me.

    Have to wonder, though, whether these were simplified at the last minute or something, because Starscream certainly looks like he SHOULD have knees.

    Megatron might be on my list, but not the rest.
