Motto: "Motive is a universal weakness."
Yeah, the translucent hand is not cool. Neither is the targeting reticle on his ass. It is a cool figure, but definitely too big and a little too G1 for me.

Well, they ARE making a voyager version for next year. So there'll be a smaller version.

Gotta admit the target on his ass is funny in a bad way. You could flip it up so it sits underneath his backpack. It may look odd if he's turning at the waist, but it does preserve his dignity.

Actually like the translucent hand... very tempting, if only I had more money and was a bigger fan of the MP scale. Probably gonna hold out for Hardbone & Blackarachnia...

Voyager-size will be an insta-buy for sure though.

Looking good! Now I want a review of him so I can see if he is as good as he looks.

It does look cool to see all the Shockwave on the assembly line, but really need a review before I commit.

he doesnt shrink at all. you forget how much of hegemon is add-ons in gun mode to make it that size. FT03 is self-contained.
as part of the transformation, you can make a trigger. while this piece is used for something else, the figure is so sturdy that you dont really need it if you want the trigger. again, mad sturdy. dude looks like hke he can take mp10.
and now ill spend the rest of the night trying to transform hegemon back.

I doubt BBTS will be touching this with a 10-foot poll. They're staying well clear of things that look 100% like a Hasbro character. As for TFSource, I'm not sure. One would think they'd be carrying it by now if they had plans to do so.

CapturedPrey may be the only North American shop to carry this.

Thanks for the clarification. I didn't realize that was the reasoning for BBTS lack of support for this figure. Makes sense.

No problem. BBTS and Hasbro have gotten very close over the last few years with BBTS Official Transformers exclusives. I don't think they want to jeopardize that.

Damn. Well there goes another 160 bucks. Kinda glad I am in for the second run. Hopefully they correct any early issues.
Anyone know what they plan on doing with the hose?

I've bought one. Stressed out at work so tried a little retail therapy and it does work. Looking forward to opening this and MP Soundwave now.

I'm not into buying third party masterpiece figures but... I kind of want this now.. the hose is a little weird... too thin and in the wrong place. Maybe they'll fix it in the final product. decisions decisions.
