    You want to complain about opinions, I'm buying this figure regardless.

    Man, I adore the clean lines on this. Beautiful. Tapered central thighs look a little bit odd but nothing to ruin the overall look.

    We know the height yet?

    $170 seems pretty expensive for a "TE" product.

    You were complaining, because a few said they'd prefer a little more visual pop. A little more detail on an expensive collector's item that looks fairly barren next to most other MPs. Why that's got a select few people in this thread so damn hostile is beyond me.

    If only people would read the entire thread, these comments would finally stop...

    Looks like a huge improvement over Ditka, and it's got the plane mode I like best. But I'm going to be that guy and say it looks too smooth, too toon.

    And for those unwilling or unable to process that, I'd say I'd like my figures to look a little less like bad animation and a little more like the real robot the animation could have been based on.

    To use Gundam as an example, less this:

    More this.

    And, to be totally fair, I'm definitely not suggesting that Transformers should have that much detail. I just want it to look like a real thing, not a 3D animation cell.

    Depends on the person. Not everyone treats these like statues or cardboard cutouts and doesn't touch them.

    I think you’re mistaken, werewolfspice has a brilliant interactive display of a Cybertronian Starbucks during morning rush for Pumpkin Spice Energon.

    Consistency =/= beauty.

    You want something ugly but consistent and I don't care about consistency in the slightest.

    In the sense that the person it depends on is me, the sole person I was referencing, then yes! Although it’s fair to say that all of us on this board are guilty of complaining about our own little nit picks that, ultimately, do not matter in the slightest.

    This idea is actually brilliant.

    I wasn't complaining. I've never thought this figure looked bad and I've wanted it since the announcement. The anti-detail rhetoric just rubs me the wrong way, and not being anti-detail evidently sets a few people off.

    I hope they change the blade of the sword to How Ditka's or DX9s, purple and transparentish. I think it looks a little too... plain or matte? Something like that. If not I guess I could give him DX9s sword to him. Still stoked for him. But a little more detail would be nice.
