    Since you have the model kit, would you be able to show a comparison of the head of that kit with Concept Megs? In terms of aesthetic it’s the closest to what might look good for a swap but I fear the head may be too small.

    I'll have to see if I can find it, but the aesthetic is completely wrong for the body style. I had the same idea until I really looked at it, and the model kit head is atrocious.

    Do you have the Autobot or Decepticon version? Because the face sculpts are really different. The con version looks segmented enough to look natural enough to me.

    Oh, didn't know there were different models. I got this none for super cheap, and pretty much hated it.
    The one I have makes him look like a sad old man, so I guess it's the Autobot one.

    Yeah, the Autobot one has the very Alex Milne face, which works very specifically for that version, but they made a Decepticon version using the same body and a new face.

    Wasn’t planning to get him but all the praise I’d been seeing and Target’s 20% off sale convinced me to give this guy a shot.

    Having him in-hand… I don’t like it.
    The robot mode is fine. Tank is tolerable. Plane is awful.

    Converting him between modes is annoyingly fiddly for such an underwhelming pair of alt modes.

    Overall, not impressed.

    I found him today. I must have won the QC lottery, very rare for me. Mine tabs together perfectly in jet mode.

    He’s definitely a robot mode first design, which is pretty much the case for all the Bee movie Cybertronian designs.

    I do find the jet mode whooshable.

    Looks okay, but that smirk is obnoxious. Also, $19 is way too much.

    I'm personally passing as I don't mind the stock head. Also appears that head will need to be removed for transformation.

    That's about as far from an upgrade as you can get.

    That head doesn't have a nose, it has a beak. Weird design choice.

    Yep. Found out made by TFS, who has known surface quality issues.

    That's actually how I pictured it at first, too. Now I see it as both of them saying it to the other one.
