    Heyo guys, this is kind of a silly question, and I've been called a stickler, but I can't find any photos or information about the shield having anywhere else to go in bot mode but on the arm. Is there other storage for it beside the forearm? I'm sort of passionate about weapon storage and that stuff.

    I get that it's part of the character to have the shield, but I still have a hard time justifying what retailed for 100 dollars and is lacking the ability to hold all of it's things at once.

    ....Probably still gonna get him though.

    I believe the only place to put it is in the arm. That aside, the figure is quite awesome. Also I think BBTS has it on sale for $30 right now. Well worth the price.

    I'm loving the look of this guy for its own merit rather than a similarity to Blurr. He's got a cool bulk to him that makes him look strong rather than fast. If there's an OS version of him, I think he'd make an awesome updated G1 Sentinel Prime.

    He pairs quite well with figures like Generations Springer and MMC's Arcee.

    How vital is this guy's shield nose to alt mode. Cohesion? Considering ditching the shield if I don't like it so he may feel more like excellion than Blurr.(if I get one from bbts clearance pre-order)

    You can't leave the shield off in vehicle mode without the head being super clearly visible and it looking daft (if I remember correctly, haven't taken him into vehicle mode in a while), but I remember thinking that maybe I could do the same thing, which would mean I could leave the shield off in robot mode and not feel like I'm magically introducing parts just for the alt mode.

    Just a heads up. I've finally got my notice that my pre-order with BBTS is about to be fulfilled.

    BBTS had a restocking pre-order a few months back. They were selling Overclocking at about $30. Mine is coming soon.

    Got mine just a few days ago.
    Gotta say, he's really nice! Bot mode is looks great with plenty of articulation (that knee bend!), and the colors are lovely. Not sure how I feel about the face with those big lips of his, but it's not as bad as I initially thought. Worst part is the outward movement on the hips. Either straight legged or super wide A-stance. Luckily the ratchets are soft enough to manage an in-between pose, but it's still something I'd have preferred done better.
    Transformation hits a nice balance. It's involved, but not difficult, which I really like.
    Alt mode is... Passable. Not a fan of the big gaps when looking from the top, and the entire front end just being partsforming kibble is unfortunate. But it works and is definitely Blurr.

    Overall, a great figure and well worth the $30 paid.
