    Slowly going through all the figures that came in this summer, and it is currently NB's turn. Tossing all the praise on the heaping praise pile. Kind of embarrassing to compare this figure to the Hasbro Titan figures given the relatively small price differences. If only the Ark had this kind of sturdiness.

    I can use one bit of advice - how do I get the super-mode arms to attach securely? At first I got the right arm fine and the left arm was loose. Then somehow I got the left arm secure and the right arm fell off and now that's loose. I'm sure its something small I'm missing, but any guidance would be appreciated.

    I guess it could pass for Fire and Guts Rolling Thunder for those not familiar.

    I’m happy for the Asian buyers as I’m sure this is more in their wheel house but man it’s ugly in my opinion.

    Oh man, that looks so good. This is also the best promotional image of all times.[​IMG]

    This looks fun! I'm always on for unusual designs and decos but I think I'm good enough with my nuclear blast pre-order. Or am I not...

    I prefer the Nuclear Blast mold - it has wonderful playability, and I find the large missile to be a much more cohesive accessory - splits into two smaller missiles, which also have 4 tiny missiles in them for accessorizing and base modes; the large missile can turn into a base with ramps, or a wicked looking cross-shape backpack with a thruster jutting out the back, etc.

    Both molds are great, but I personally give the edge to NB.

    Nuclear version imo. It has a mode where it gets the two missile shoulder configuration as the jungle version plus all the extra parts.

    Depends on if you like options vs aesthetics. Jungle has a better profile in vehicle mode and a better head sculpt imo.

    I like both equally. If you group them with a Diaclone Reboot collection, you can use both of them, then you don't have to make such a difficult choice ;)

    It's funny, other times I don't think I'd mind a translucent chase variant TOO much, but for this one I would 100% want this awesome deco.

    Imagining handling a clear plastic version of this toy is giving me anxiety.

    I’m a sucker for clear plastic but I really wish it was clear green jungle version. It’d remind me of my old Nintendo 64 jungle version I had
