    No, sorry. I'm just pure southern USA Florida swamp trash. :)  But I did check out England and Scotland this summer - very lovely!

    Well fuck, this is a lot better. Gotta appreciate that cobra look with adequate proportions. Can't wait for Harrier Shatter to be released. And OS'd. In that order.

    From what I gather, the British term came first, followed by the American. My friend used to use a less common (I think only used by them) phrase of "...she said, smilingly."

    Hmmm... I wonder what the chances are of an improved KO of Earthrise Cliffjumper that negates the partsforming. I'll also wouldn't mind a smidge taller...

    I wouldn't expect an improved one, most likely just an upscale.

    Wait... parts-forming?

    I didn't hear about this. What's the parts-forming?

    WHAT.

    *EDIT*
    (after finding a review on youtube)


    WTF?? Okay, FU Hasbro. Un-sold. You took the most promising Earthrise deluxe and just ruined it. Screw that noise. Bastards. :mad 

    Now it's up to the KO designers... do you want to correct Hasbro's mistake? Do you want my money?

    I'd honestly be fine if that back piece just split in half and became some guns. I don't think that's too much to ask.

    PARTS-FORMING IS NOT TRANSFORMING!!!

    Seriously, if you're gonna charge $30 for a scout-class figure, you can at least make it transform properly. If the ONLY requirement in a transformer was to have two good modes, I'd just buy a Gundam action figure and a separate fXXXing Hot Wheels car, and call it done.

    This is no longer a transformer. It's a piece of garbage. It's a Hasbro designer who just gave up and went home early. There is no excuse here. There's not even anything to mitigate this choice. It's thoughtless design failure in fully-realized mass-produced form.

    Whoever designed this should light their boss on fire for greenlighting it, and then pour battery acid in their eyes. After they're publicly flensed, of course.

    Serious enough for ya? :lol

    Agrew, just watched the video and it's whatever. I think all of Hasbros stuff is now overpriced, but overall the figure looks nice and a detachable backpack really isn't a bad thing.

    It's not a "detachable backpack"

    It's an "integral part of the base vehicle mode that NEEDS to be removed during transformation, and then just sort of stuck back on somewhere".

    Which is incontrovertibly a bad thing.

    If this toy wasn't designed to parts-form, but just happened to BREAK like this in 90% of figures, fans would be screaming for heads on pikes. But now we're making excuses for Hasbro selling it to you pre-broken. Yay?
