    Can't tell for sure, but it looks like this one's face doesn't fold away either.

    Did the original Jizai version do that?

    Anyway, the packaging is the same size as Wheelie's. Any chance this one isn't upscaled afterall?
    The packaging looks ace, getting a retro vibe from it.

    I'm hoping the tiny flaps on his crotch and in his legs and the feet on this guy are diecast.

    ^ We've seen prototypes for a Galvatron, I think based on Jizai's concept art.

    Oh, damn. I checked around to see if they had been posted, and the date on ACToys was just a couple days ago.

    *facepalm*

    Does he have plans for anything past beachcomber? Brawn, Gears, Huffer or Seaspray??? If so, forget iGear. Especially after seeing his work on Wheelie!!!
