    He looks good but something just seems off to me. I really think the TR one captured the character better.

    As a matter of logistics, it makes more sense to have a boring, gray, nondescript robot that turns into a boring, gray nondescript vehicle as an army as opposed to a angry, ravenous eating machine with the IQ of a potato chip. At least the Deeseus drones had the capacity to point their guns at a target and shoot instead of run face first into a giant murder dinosaur tossing a toddler temper tantrum.

    Hmmm.... A G1 Bulkhead could be a close runner up but name another legit Chubby Transformer (Bot or Con) that's cooler than "G'naw"....

    The Legend class Gnaw's are cuter in alt-mode but it's the bot mode for me in this case... I only pre-ordered 2 Gnaws but I'll buy 1 or 2 more if I spot him in stores.

    ...and I instantly regret buying so many TR Gnaws. I have to get at least 1 of these, he's so nice. He can be the leader of his 12 little brothers.

    ok, oi'm a lot more impressed with him after these photos, I thought he was looking kinda lame in the initial reveal.

    Originally I liked the Titans Returns version better, however the more I see, the more I realise how wrong I was.

    This guy is pretty awesome. While I have no intention of troop building I'll probably end up with a few of them.

    Hmm..... I'm not much of a fan of those Fossilizers but do you think one of the molds could make a decent Executioner?

    I\'d like to see a \"battle damaged\" version of this with his eyes scratched and teeth smashed in.

    I'll keep my TR Sharkticons, but I much prefer this version. Better scaled. Looks much more accurate. This one looks like he doesn't skip on his robot mode.

    That's a more involved transformation than I expected....

    Very nice.

    In Sharkticon (alt) mode? Yes! Those little deadly Legends class suckers look adorable to this day. So they'll remain part of my Quintesson army.
    In Bot mode? No! I only had plans of buying 2 of these SS86 versions and keeping them in bot mode since they bring out the nostalgia in such a cool way.

    But as I mentioned earlier, I might search for 1 or 2 more in the field to keep in alt-mode to fit in with my school of little ones. I just wish the blue horns on the sides of his mouth weren't thicker than the alt-mode arms that I wish had wrist or forearm swivel.

    Other than that I still give him a 7/10 for now.

    I'd like SS86 Gnaw if he didn't have those damned forearm gaps. Just looks unfinished, like the designer just...gave up. I actually like SS86' Gnaw's alt mode better than the bot mode though.

    Am I the only one here who thinks this new Gnaw is awesome and the TR Gnaw sucks ? Ive been reading the comments and Im shocked at all the petty complaints. Its a Sunbow accurate Sharkticon for retail price. What more yall want ? People would have killed for this back when Toyworld and Igear Sharticons were going for like $120 a set.

    I don't have a problem with Gnaw at all, he even comes with a blaster. Top notch imo.

    as much as i love gnaw id prefer a two pack of sharkticon and alicon to give us a real army builder pack. the main thing transformers falls short on is the single packing of army builders
