    Controversial opinion: I do not care at all for the WFC/FOC style. Still glad these exist for those that want them as the games were cool.

    This is probably the best Gamer Edition figure look-wise overall I've seen since Optimus. Definitely the best GE Deluxe easily IMO and better than the original's robot mode mostly.

    Doesn't look that bad, not perfect but I also have low standards for this subline so I'll take this as mostly a win lol for this line.

    Doesn’t look too bad. He actually seems very competent putting him alongside the rest of the GE figures.

    Every single one of these SS-WfC figures has been a sidegrade at best, imho.

    Looks better than Bumblebee, but that's not really hard to do. :lol

    Definitely not terrible. Proportions could probably be more streamlined, but it otherwise appears to be pretty close to his game design. Shame about those feet though.

    Really not a fan of the return of static feet sliced at a diagonal angle. I don't care about lack of ankle tilt, just don't awkwardly cut them up. Love the headsculpt though.

    I like him. Probably I prefer him more in G2 colors or as Deep cover character but I like him anyways.

    Hey, if he's not a floppy mess and can actually stand I'll be happy. Hopefully the Gun isn't larger than he is like the old one. too.

    Is it just me, or does he share engineering with SS Lockdown and DotM Roadbuster?

    Oh thank god. He actually looks perfect. Sure, not as chunky and is a little more panel-y, but compared to all the other ge, this is incredible. The chest on the OG was way off and the jazz tooling always bothered me. At least these proportions are good.

    I didn’t hate it till I got to the knees. Everything from the knee down is awful. This guy also looks to share some engineering with Barricade, and that was easily the worst figure of 2023.

    Mediocre at best, it's not bad but it's hardly wowing me. And after the disaster that was Starscream, I think this solidifies my desire to jump off this train. Which is a shame as I love these designs.

    I understand that some compromises have to be made in order to make them functioning Transformers but just look at the magic some of the Bayverse figures have achieved. Probably just gonna' sell off those Wave 1 figures I got.

    The way my heart sank when I heard that sides might be a barricade retool.. he's got one of the best designs in the game. Thankfully he looks aight. Sure his legs are thin but the game model's legs are pretty thin already. He 100% needs to start doing some squats

    shame about the lack of ankle rocker though. But considering how disastrous this line has been I'd say he stands out as one of the better ones
