    Those feet look like they could fall over any moment and that backpack looks huge. Well, I would give my final opinion when I can see the figure in a 360 angle front and back

    Well that transformation video explains the flat feet. There’s no room left!

    The video solidified my want for this figure.

    It also shows how an ankle tilt could easily be added.
    The heel could probably be made to fold up a but. too.
    The bigger challenge would be filling in the back of the shins more.

    I still dig it and will definitely get it.

    WFC Sideswipe is by far the best deluxe from SSGE hands down. This design is one of my favourites from the games and I love how accurate it is. I’m glad GE is getting better and better by each new release. I love the headsculpt and the red is nice. Can’t wait for more IMG_2246.jpeg IMG_2243.jpeg IMG_2245.jpeg IMG_2242.jpeg IMG_2247.jpeg IMG_2240.jpeg IMG_2229.jpeg

    Nice photos, he looks great except the ugly cut on the feet. I can understand that there's no room for ankle tilt, but the cut is just useless in most of the poses and ruins the overall look. They should just give him normal feet.

    Still, I'm probably going to get him, but will leave him in alt-mode most of the time.

    I’m so confused why they fully painted his lower arms in red instead of just making it red plastic. Seems like a waste of paint.

    I mean I know that’s the reason, just kinda confused why they keep putting such large chunks of a figure in the wrong sprue. Feels like it’d be pretty simple to just say “put that one in red sprue”.

    I wonder if there are standard sizes that the sprue molds are cut from and since there’s so much red on him the red sprue is full but there’s lots of room on the grey (or whatever those parts are under the paint.)

    Great lighting - the shadow obscuring the backpack helps to separate it from the actual torso silhouette, which really is the, "proportion issue," people have been concerned about, with this figure. The legs aren't actually that scrawny, when compared to the size of his chest proper.

    I'm one of those freaks who genuinely, unironically love Studio Series Gamer Edition Bumblebee, so I'm excited to finally want to get another Deluxe Class Studio Series Gamer Edition figure.
