This is one of my top 5

This is one of my top 5 Animated Transformers and only the second one to buy on my own, I wanted him that much. The Alt modes aren't the best, but his robot modes are highly screen accurate and the way he shifts between them is just phenomenal. Actually, you buy this guy mostly for his robot-to-robot conversion, other aspects are minor details.

The modern day Punch/Counterpunch, I bow to your glory, Animated Shockwave.

Eva, I think using the Hasbro pics as review teasers is not always a good idea, not when Hasbro's photographer is in idiot mode and he mistransforms the toy.

I knew it was mistransformed

I knew it was mistransformed long before I posted this review, but I like using the official images. They're often clearer/easier to comprehend than my own photos. If I knew how to cut out backgrounds by 'shopping them out, I would once-in-a-while.

...Besides, who will notice it as a thumbnail on the front unless they're looking for it? ;)

Man, there were at least 2

Man, there were at least 2 or 3 things I found out about this guy after I had him for awhile, and I STILL didn't know about the chest feature where he can bend forward! This guy was just full of surprises.

I wouldn't have known about

I wouldn't have known about the torso shifting forward either if I hadn't accidentally run across it on the TF wiki(s) as I was researching the character!

Considering how late we in

Considering how late we in the Pacific Northwest get new toys on the shelves compared to the rest of the nation, that I am quite satisfied with the one reviewed above and would only get the repaint strictly out of nostalgia, and that I've already seen them come-and-go at Target, the chances of me obtaining one- and thus reviewing it on CDX- are slim-to-none.
