    god, that jet mode is ugly. that's the most blatant "brick with some jet parts attached" i've ever seen.

    Have you seen the g1 toy? This is a perfect representation of it in all 3 modes.

    Some vague, mad thoughts I had upon gazing at pics of Apeface...


    I love the way he looks in all 3 modes, but I'm disappointed that he's so...small.

    Now, looking at this, it makes me want a tt masterpiece version so bad...(I know there's at least one third party version out there)

    But anyway... Siege Apeface looks so cool, he may be my first purchase from that line.

    I hope that I don't become hooked on this particular strain of plastic crack...I must refrain from siege and earthrise...I'm only into Beast Wars MP's nowdays...

    I must repeat that mantra to myself, over and over again...I'm only into Beast Wars MP's nowdays...

    "But Apeface turns into a gorilla? Doesn't that count?" I ask myself...

    What are the chances that hasbro repaints him into Optimus Primal? I ask myself again...

    "I'd buy that!" I think..."But it probably won't happen..."

    I've definitely had things to say about this toy - but I'm holding off on further review until I have it in hand. I'm sure I'll enjoy it regardless of any negatives I may find.

    Also, I'd be totally down for a 3rd (or official) line of articulated G1 looking (as in G1 'bricks') toys.

    I prefer the G1 jet mode.

    eh, g1 integrates the cockpit/nosecone a lot better into the general block of jet behind it. plus the real cockpit n general angularity of the old one bring it up a notch in my book.

    I'm discovering that a lot of the "breaks while transforming" alerts I've seen on here seem to be people suffering from HamFistitis.

    Got Apeface yesterday via Amazon! Love Him! :)  Hopefully his partner Snapdragon will come soon so that the two will be reunited! Keep up Hasbro/Takara with the obscure characters!

    Yep.
    Along with some of the most lackluster attempts to try and transform it; resulting in running to Youtube or the Interwebs to complain that it's a terrible transformer.

    It laughingly is the EXACT opposite. An amazing transformer with one of the most solid tabbing and securing alt modes I've ever handled.

    Bot mode looks best, don't care for the other modes, if the price is right, I will buy him.

    My copy from Amazon is pretty good. Pretty solid in all modes once you sweet talk all the tabs into working for you instead of against you. The pegs that are intended to hold the hind legs next to the robot chest are a little bit too short. And yeah, the white color isn't so great, but still. Probably my #2 siege voyager behind OP.

    Outside of the butt-cockpit I'm fine with the jet mode, though I do thing it loses something with the all-pink fuselage instead of just the nose cone itself being pink.

    Well, good news, I didn't get a chance to break my shield. Mine came pre-broken from Amazon. Slapped it in a bubble mailer and looked to have been kicked around pretty well in transit. Nice dent in the top of the box and also right where the shield sits in there. Heard something rattling around in the package. At least they are replacing it. I think I still have a damn Jetfire lost in space somewhere that they never delivered. I just may be a test subject for Amazon because about 50% of my limited orders are either lost (not stolen, but tracking just shows missing/damaged in transit) or arrive jacked up.

    I checked this thread and didn't see. Has anyone confirmed if the headmaster can stay in the gorilla face/combiner thing while in jet mode?

    I knew he'd be short, so not surprising. I think the only reason I'll be okay with it was because years ago I was going to be perfectly okay with getting what it looked like Fansproject was going to make of him. And that thing was going to be as small as their other headmasters. (Of course, that bot mode would have been a hell of a lot more articulated...)

    I'll have to get this in hand and really make up my mind. I still have my original Apeface, who was one of the last TFs I ever bought. And I loved the hell out of that toy when I was a kid.

    He can, and can look out the windscreen quite well.

    Nice! That's a selling feature considering the rear cockpit is pretty much useless. At least, if that was the only thing it had. More importantly, it can be ignored.

    Eh. I still give him the edge over Broadside's from a few years ago, since at least with Apeface he's meant for a line of toys with Tetra Jets and whatever Soundwave turns into, so they aren't trying to pass off his jet as supposed to resemble something that you would ever find on Earth.
