    Great figure, fun transformation, sleek alt mode. A little petite but everything else is spot on.

    Can the wheels rotate inwards for a hover mode?

    Him and Hound are probably the two deluxes I'm most excited for.

    He's also the only figure where I'm a bit 'eh' on the battle damage; Hound just does it so much better.

    is that it for his gun?

    like most of this line (aside from maybe prime) his head sculpt is a thing of beauty. Wonder if it could be transplanted to Universe?

    Colors look really nice. look forward to seeing him arrayed with some other Classics cars eventually.

    He should also have a second red gun that can plug into the barrel of this one.

    He should have a red missile tip to make his shoulder cannon, too.

    Man, I wish there was a way to remove the battle damage from the feet while keeping the silver.

    Dang, that's one sexy bot and car. I'll keep an eye out for him. Wonder when they are due to hit Australia?

    No, they're fixed. The thighs are sandwiched behind the back wheels in car mode anyway.

    There is another conical red blaster. It's a different shade of red from the rest of the figure. I photographed it but preferred pics where it was left aside.

    Lovely pics! Any chance of a comparison in car mode to older CHUG figures? I know people are saying his bot mode is smaller, but how does alt mode compare?

    Should have used a true Cybertronian vehicle mode with smaller chest.

    Looks like Hound head backplate can move backwards to allow the head to rotate 360º

    Could we get some shots of him with CW Sunstreaker?

    I'd say there's gonna be a WFC Sunstreaker down the line, maybe in the second part of the trilogy. If there's a Wheeljack coming they could be retools of each other since the car parts end in similar places.

    Yeah I figure a new Sunstreaker will come soon enough though the CW figure doesn’t look too bad paired up for the meantime.

    While there are numerous figures that are a bit taller than the Siege deluxes they are still easily a head taller than classics Bumblebee so nothing is broken.

    Hound's head only turns +/- 30 degrees that I could manage anyway.
