    I just got this figure today. Gotta say, im very surprise how nice it is considering some of the bashing it took. My favorite version of Gears thus far and a nice size too. And for the price I paid at BBTS on clearance makes it even better.

    The figure is very good and VERY underrated. I'm really not sure why it took all that bashing. And if you want a Gears in-scale with Classics Bumblebee and the rest, this guy functions much better than the Legends Gears which just came out (and only looks good with its head top, sides and "stripes" painted red).

    Photos of Blurr/"Overlocking" have just been released; looking good, but I'm not sure they can justify $100+ with the way Continuously Variable has been clearanced ...

    You are preaching to the choir. I've said all along that it's a great figure, but there are some out there that don't like certain things about the robot mode. I respect their point of views but at the moment he's still in my top ten third party figures.

    Blurr looks even better and there is a warm spot on my shelf for him when he gets released.

    Yeah i can't understand why people aren't jumping on this figure especially at the price its going for now. this figure is great and is my Gears on my MP/G1S1 shelf.

    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=SXS10004&mode=retail

    Its sold out on acetoystore...they had the best price

    This figure along with Krank by Xtransbot are to me 2 of the most underrated figures in the 3rd party releases

    I agree he's quite a good figure but he's not a good representation of Gears (in the same way Krank isn't a good rep of Huffer).

    I had both and sold both.

    They look like good reps to me but hey, just my opinion. especially Krank moreso than Huff

    Krank can only compete with Huff as a representation in those pics because that pic has the alternate head. Plus the panel that goes behind his head is missing. Should fold down and hide the front wheels.
