    Awesome to see Knockout getting a new figure (Even if it doesn’t transform)

    Got Cheetor in the other day and have only barely messed with him because oh man... Kind of a disappointment.

    I really don't get why his chest comes off. At all. The peg hole is a little too loose and the cheetah head twists around way too much. Also makes his ab crunch pretty more worthless, not that it could do all that much even without the head attached, because the front of the torso is squared off so you have to force it to bend forward and immediately start rubbing paint off. Going back of course is no problem at all, because that's a normal thing to do...

    Most joints are way too loose too, particularly the knees. Which aren't helped by -

    Just how weird the plastic on these guys feels. That cannot be stressed enough. I was also expecting something... more based on my Black Series and Lightning Collection experience that these are so obviously trying to harken back to, but yes there's definitely something off with this compared to those. It just sometimes doesn't feel good to be messing with him because of how soft some of the plastic in the joints feels.

    But hey, at least he has the gut gun?

    My copy is exactly the same. Tightened up the knees with Future, but now the ankles are suddenly loosey-goosey. And the plastic is like gummy. I have some Marvel Legends that are noticeably gummier plastic, but the RED stuff is like soft like a dog chew toy. I'll probably buy a Knockout if the design looks nice, but I probably won't buy anything else since the cons outweigh the pros.

    Oh and I forgot to mention how terrible the effect parts look! They look like gross purple excrement.

    She’s a mixed bag. While she is probably the best representation of the CGI model, there are some major drawbacks of this figure and number 1 is the lack of degree of articulation. She cost the same as those GI Joe’s Classified and those have way more degrees of articulation and poseability.

    I had to cut some of the plastic in her neck just to allow her to look up and down.

    I like the RED series but Hasbro just seems like they didn’t deliver a finished product. Along with loose joints and softness of the plastic, it really hinders what could’ve been a great product.

    Gorgeous shots! Is that the Iron Warrior Optimus? If so, how does he scale with Arcee?

    Yes that is IW Optimus! Good eyes!
    He towers over her, so he scales well. He's almost 10 inches and she's almost 6", so she comes to about his waist.

    Oh, that's pretty good! Definitely the best we're gonna get as far as scale goes. I considered that figure heavily, but I've heard he's fragile.

    Super fragile! It's basically like a "completed model kit". Other than that, he's spot on!

    Got Cheetor today. Kinda meh to be honest. He's nowhere near a favorite character of mine, but it's Beast Wars. The plastic of very soft, and the joints could be tighter. If Cheetor is the only BW character they make, I'd be fine with that. It would look ridiculous with them all being the same height anyway.

    Arcee is the only R.E.D. figure I own, and the plastic is rubbery. And the joints are loose on her as well (on my copy at least).

    But she looks nice!

    Think there's a Prime Knockout on the way, I will pick him up, probably, reluctantly.

    Today I've just received my "Transformers R.E.D. [Robot Enhanced Design]" - "Transformers Prime" Arcee figure from Hasbro Pulse, and she looks so beautiful, and screen accurate all at the same time, and I absolutely love her so much! :D

    I've been meaning to ask. Does RED Series Cheetor's gun fit in Kingdom Deluxe Cheetor's hand?
