    My it's like one of those people that can't wear their face masks correctly. "Defecate, or get off of the pot, Sah!".

    For the age range this seems like a fun toy. Joints look like overkill in how thick they look transformation is super simple etc and the idea's boss.

    Now Hasbro make this to an insane level of complexity and detail, with full articulation! I demand more Monster Trucks in my "adult" collections lines

    Wow, I can't believe Hastak are finally making a figure of the old Armada "Monster Convoy" concept design, but for the kids.Guess Generation Selects wasnt good enough, now they gotta get even the youngest of fans hooked on obscure references no one ever talks about outside TFwiki and these forums.

    Jokes aside, I love that old monster truck concept for Armada Optimus, and I really hope we eventually get a voyager or leader class figure of it in Generations. As for this? Honestly, it looks really good for a kids toy! Its really chunky, the design's great, and that front grill in alt mode just radiates cool. I'm really tempted to get this for some of my younger siblings, they'd enjoy it a ton.

    Used to collect Rescue Bots when my kid when younger. This is 1st one I've seen where the arms aren't even attached at the shoulders.
