Did a search and didn't see a thread for this. This is a huge improvement over the first one, and I liked the first one. He just looks so much closer to the CG model and he's a bit taller, too. He looks great with the rest of the 2007 Autobots. The swords from the original can be used as well. Truck mode is pretty good, though it has a weird gap under the doors with robot bits visible. Transformation is a bit more complex than the first version. Colors look great, even has the rims painted. The short smokestacks is the only thing that doesn't look all that great to me. Overall, I love it. Looks great and has tighter joints than the first release, which was a bit floppy (or at least my copy was that way).
