    Seriously. If you edit out all the times he sits there clawing at it and gouging it with his fingers you'd probably cut the video down by a third.

    My fave bit is where he straight rips the head off because he couldnt figure out what the next step was.

    Figure itself though is *mwah*. Cant wait to get it.

    I must say, this is a very impressive voyager movie prime. Paint, engineering, articulation all seems to be quite excellent for a retail transformer.

    Christ, this thing is perfectly scaled with VW BumbleBee in both modes. Madness. Absolute madness.

    Incredible figure, but watching this dude fumble through the transformation only to not even do it right killed me. Would it have really been too much to do a little editing if it meant not getting stuck and pulling the toy apart?

    The dude literally does not care. All he wants is to be first and get those juicy views for the sweet sweet ad revenue. His other videos are even worse than this. We got lucky it was only the forearms he messed up.

    It's very frustrating to watch whoever this reviewer is transform his figures. He like, massages the parts into place. :/

    Hopefully we'll get a review from someone who can actually fucking transform it right soon. That was painful to watch

    I was literally about to post that too. It popped up in my YT feed a few minutes ago.

    Also, xD
    His back is C.O.M.B.A.T. compatible it looks like. At least if the way the gun stores is same peg size.

    Oh man, the inevitable WeiJiang OS KO repaint of this is going to be a must-buy.

    Just.. beautiful ;-; Will definitely add this thing of beauty to my Optimus collection. Just wished he had a wrist articulation but other than that, everything else just looks fantastic!

    I'm pleasantly surprised that SS-38 is a 100% original mold! I love how he looks next to SS-18 Bumblebee as well!

    He does have wrist articulation or you wouldn't be able to get the arms to face forward correctly (the reviewer has the arms positioned the wrong way) and have the wrist facing the right way to hold the gun. The reviewer also showed the wrist articulation in the video.

    I was not expecting that much engineering in a standard voyager size figure. Doesn't look like they cut any corners either. Can't wait to get my hands on one.

    Woah Ton Ton's video is unavailable. I wonder if Hasbro took it down or he's reshooting it with the proper transformation?
