For my Nephew

I got this one for my Nephew along with Grimlock and he loves them. I think they're pretty fun. What I like the most is that in the hands of a 4 year old, they're very sturdy and don't fall apart so easily.

but I took the Axe for my collection... child safety first *cough dibs cough*

I've found that his vehicle mode is just about the right size to be in scale with the Legends class guys, and the smaller head helps him fit in with them in robot mode. I think it fits, I like thinking of OP as a bigger dude, especially now that he has his entire trailer to transform with. He's kinda Powermaster-y.

I also kinda dig the truck grill on his fists. It's kinda clunky, sure, but to me they look kinda like boxing gloves. Nothing means business like punching someone with a truck.

My only real complaints are that they didn't make a Voyager-sized version with the same (or better) articulation, because the Three-Step Changer or whatever can't even bend his legs, and that the upper thighs are made of blue plastic painted grey. On mine the inner thighs aren't painted, and if you're just going to paint over it... why make it blue in the first place?
