    SO GROSS.

    This is like some twisted, dark parallel future where McDonald's takes over Hasbro and starts making giant McDonald's toys...
    I probably wouldn't take it even if it was free.

    It's been said before but it just looks very much like unpainted "Games Workshop" grey plastic to me.

    Yeah, I'm not normally one to bitch about unpainted grey/silver plastic but this is an exception. That.... just looks terrible... which works out because I like this mold about as much as I like sitting on a warm toilet seat in a public restroom.

    I agree.

    But what I'm more worried about is that it's a complete waste of plastic. My guess is this is a low cost high profit item that Hasbro "cons" Big Box places to buy. I can hear the marketing/sales team now. "OOOO look it's a big toy very cheap for you to bring in your store and bammm huge profit like $59 dollars in profit every one sold. You know you want it, Target."

    Who actually looks at these things and says "Yep, THAT'S the one we're going to release!"

    Seriously.

    This guy is mediocre as a children's toy, but the fact that this repaint is specifically created and advertised towards collectors is sort of hilarious. The mold was bad to begin with, but this is just awful.

    The multi pack is good for presents but that Silver Knight looks ugly unless if it is G1-esque

    Ya know? With just a little bit of blue and a different head, this could be a decent Ultra Magnus.

    Ugh, that awful "neutral" gray they always love to use...seriously, this is one of the few times I would have thought chroming the shit out of something, or at least more metalic paint options, would make the toy look better. But there is hardly any paint at all!

    True.

    But what they dont tell you is when no one buys this for 60, they sit on the shelves (looking at you Beast Hunters Sky Lynx) and they make Transformers look bad... Crap toys, packing the shelves, that noone will buy...

    Aweful looking figure...

    Easy pass. Not only does this look atrociously cheap, but that whole Silver Knight thing isn't accurate to anything in the movie.
