    I've been pretty happy with the Super 7 human based Ultimates, so I think the Joes will be okay. I have a couple pre-ordered too.

    I hope he is popular enough that hastak ends up making him in the RED line. THAT scale could work for me.

    I do wish the articulation were better… but I guess there’s the chance it also might be a smidge better in-hand than the photos indicate.

    And yeah, Razor Sharp’s complete lack of articulation is a little disappointing.

    Still, I’m looking forward to getting him. The colors look great, I like the larger size, and he looks pleasantly chunky.

    Still heavily cherry-picking the S7 Ultimates, though.

    After seeing the review for Banzaitron, think I’m going to keep my preorder for Tarn, just bc he’s a unique character. But I’m not heavily invested in this line beyond him

    Since Banzaitron never transformed I guess this could work as an MP as well.

    Yeah, like just peg posts to plug the parts in would have been fine so they could be repositioned. That's the minimum effort I was hoping to see with this and if I'm seeing the seams in that black block the claws and legs are attached to correctly, it looks like it's not a solid one piece chunk. That being the case, why not make the parts have swivels in them?

    Articulation is better in some places, worse in others, but GOOD GOLLY does his look ever push the right buttons for me.

    I'm looking more forward to getting him than I thought.

    There’s just no reason for the elbows to be that bad.

    And I wonder about the long-term integrity of the gummy diaper.

    It’s in my blood to defend design focused compromises…

    Nope. I’ve got nothing.

    I was leaning toward canceling my pre-order for Prime because some of the recent pictures didn't look all that great to me. After watching that review I have changed my mind. It looks good. Articulation is a big letdown and hopefully something they address going forward.

    At least, the accessories are enough for a deal. Better than Banza-Tron on that.

    Truth be told, all of this talk about the first wave really has me excited but nervous to see what Tracks ends up looking like when they finalize his sculpt. I’m excited for him no matter what, as I sincerely dig the aesthetic of these guys, but I was hoping I’d finally end up with a super posable Tracks, and now I’m less optimistic. Poor Tracks, destined to always look good, but to never make the cut for the gymnastics team…

    I always knew these guys wouldn't be super articulated in terms of range of motion, but I was hoping for at least 90 degree bend in the elbows. So far it looks like the only ones who get just about that are Bombshell and maybe Starscream. Banzai-Tron looks hit fairly hard in that respect, and he was the only one I had preordered. I might have kept my preorder if he at least had a bunch of cool accessories, but he mostly only had Razor Sharp, and with that being pretty much a static piece of plastic..... yeah, I'm cancelling him. Hopefully Wave 2 and 3 turn out better than this.
