    Pretty disappointed with how large he is. One of the contributing reasons I've noticed recent collabs getting so much better (besides G.I. Joe, we don't talk about those) is from shrinking them down to allow for less hollow parts and an overall higher quality feel. Making him smaller would’ve also made it easier to buy multiple of him, and would've lowered the price a bit.

    Looking forward to my preorder for sure, but it doesn't look like I'll be getting multiple.

    I do kind of wish he was voyager size so the vehicle mode would feel a bit less chibi, but he's a great size in robot mode to go with the old line so I can't complain really. He looks so fun.

    So is he too big or too small? lol

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    He seems to be a full size voyager.
    The Bumblebee in the earlier pics is MPM, not SS.

    Actually, 5, since the "no headband / car front as a chest" mode is a unique character

    I\'d love to customize this, take off all the turtle-esque stuff like the head, the bumper, make it into a traditional transformer custom character.

    See, that's what threw me. I don't own either one and thought that was SS Bee. So I'm thinking, wow he's short! But that realization plus the pics just after your post show he's a great size.

    Quick review:

    -Pretty much a modern Leader class figure in size
    -Very simplistic/boring transformation, nothing we haven't seen before
    -Feels very... toy-ish? Yet very sturdy. Reminds me of Marvel or G.I. Joe Transformers figures
    -Integrated storage for ALL the accessories... big plus for me
    -Gimmicks and weapons are fun
    -No need to shave the tabs/nubs mentioned by the first reviewer; you just need to really push the panels in, it's designed like that
    -Clearance is minimal under the vehicle, so the wheels don't necessarily roll super well
    -When properly plugged in, parts don't pop off as easily as in the video review
    -There a small gap between the waist and the torso in robot mode that's pretty annoying... It's impossible to push the torso fully in

    Same.

    Not for me. I collect most X-Overs, but skipping this. I'm sure the turtle fans like it, but this looks horrible to me.

    I get it...im one of the biggest defenders of Joe X-Overs, and I know some hate those, but they are some of my favorite releases in recent time.

    There's just waaaaaaay too many things I don't like outweighed by the ONE thing I do like, which is the bot mode. If this is heavily discounted I may try one..but for now I'm a canceled preorder guy.

    Do you have to rip off the bubble like a carded toy or does the plastic slide out after you cut open the cardboard on one of the sides? (I’m just curious since I’ll open it up either way.)

    Yeah... I tried hard to open it without ripping off the top but I couldn't extract the main figure, too big.

    Party Wallop looks sick, this is probably the best Collaborative figure ever made!

    Can we get some vehicle mode comparisons against other modern figures in vehicle mode?

    If it’s not too much of a bother, could someone do a side-by-side of Party Wallop and Legacy Bulkhead.
