    Those gold lips are just disturbing and wrong.

    I really love how this guy looks on my shelf, but my copy is a loose, floppy, red turd. I have to put his back against Dinobot's shin so he doesnt topple over. The hips literally swing when I pick it up. It is embarrassingly bad, but it does a great job of just existing on a shelf.

    The round hip joints look to be the correct shade of red to go with the original figure- which, oddly, used a darker shade of red for those parts which doesn’t match the rest of Primal’s red paint.

    Same for most part. Tolerances are all off.

    Everything's bigger and better in Texas! Everything's meaner and greener in Shrexas! And everything's redder and deader in … Hell?

    On a more serious note, I find this in an interesting figure visually. The opaque gold blades, hands, feet, robot lips, and antennae are such a weird contrast to the translucent red plastic. He looks like something out of Himalayan mythology.

    i really really like the way it looks and I know i'm probably in the minority but that's ok. I am hoping to get this down the line but I really don't want to pay full price. especially pay full price for a complete clear plastic masterpiece figure knowing what may happen down the line.

    That pale face and gold lips make it seem like gorilla-convoy does kabuki theater.

    So the best way to make the figure look good is by covering it in effects. got it.

    Great pics tho.
