    The legs can be pulled outward at the hips a bit, so that his legs are more far apart.

    20211201_102155.jpg Like Raiden I don't think the primary focus was Transformers/ Masterpiece collectors. This is the perfect deskbot for someone not into Transformers. With Honda promoting it as well, that was probably a requirement. Even the non-paint areas, are areas where you would have to worry about paint run, basically they made a turbo that transformed, that was idiot proof.

    That's not bad, that's just not enough for me on a regular basis. It's not bad or lazy design , they made a much more compacted Altmode centered around a pretty fluid transformation, in comparison to the he Datsuns, this is a lot smoother.

    I always thought the season 2 carbots looked more like the toys. Especially the likes of Red Alert and Hoist.

    I'm sitting this one out as I prefer the more plain looking Savant but I'm with @jackisking here, I hope Jazz and Mirage are back to the Hound and Sunstreaker style.

    If TT were to do that to Jazz and Mirage then I guess I'll just get the 3P options (I never thought I'd say that) or even not get anything at all (in Jazz's case as nothing out there really gets my attention).

    Got mine today. Holy crap am I so happy to have an MP I can transform in a few minutes instead of close to an hour once more. I haven't had that joy since Primal or the Fusos.
    His arms feel a little on the thin side, and I wish he came with the other gun and maybe the bike, but otherwise he's great.

    Annoying, but a bit harsh to give one star?

    It's this one guy who one-stars, 4.5+ items and then vents about how they should be $50.
