Look cool, but I'm not getting my hopes up. Distribution with this line sucks hardcore.

Jet mode? Awesome! Incredible! The ROTF Starscream syndrome has reached him, however. Poor hands, back there.

Robot mode? Could be bulkier in the back, but I still love it. This guy is a total must have.

Jet-Robot hybrid? Haha. That's funny.

Really really excited for this guy. I can overlook the hands in alt mode for all of the other awesomeness of this figure.

Yeah the issue with the hands in alt-mode sounds unanimous around Dreadwing though awesome he still is. But as usual I'm wondering what to expect from the Takara version... :-? . What of his gun, does it look like it has a lame gimmick like Voyager SS and Voyager Prime?

Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
Warning a mini-rant. Why... why must the weapons be giant blocks of technology with no way to lock into place. Why? Don't get me wrong. I like the mechtech weapons. I proudly display my movie trilogy Optimus with most of my Autobot ones. (Including many Optimus ones though I am missing a few). Even if they did not want it to lock into place, how come they could not of done like they did with mechtech and just made a gun that transforms into a 'larger' gun, UGH. The gun looks cool, but the intrepid collector has to rubber band the weapon to lock into place. Why must the weapons have LEDs? I mean why not a locking button to activate the LED. I am an engineer btw. I have no clue why this mechanic was even implemented. I love this figure. I love the gun. I was like, heck yeah! Then I saw a clear plastic band holding the gun into its gun configuration and was super depressed.

It is such a sad waste to see I am going to spend money on something I am not ever going to be able to use. I am sure people on here will hate me for saying all of this. These are my legit feelings on the matter. Megatron's is the only one that is cool since it can lock into place with some fidling + it is a gun no matter what!

Robot mode is fantastic and makes this a must buy. But.... those hands in alt mode.... ohhhh those hands..... A little piece of joy fell from my face when I saw those hands...... I wonder if I can pull them off! :) I also wonder if mistransformed, but sadly, I think it is what it is.....

I don't like that either. I look the shoulders and legs of older Voyagers like Mindwipe, Seaspray, Lugnut... then I look the new Voyagers... :BANG_HEAD:

By the way, how do the ball joints of these new Voyagers handle friction over time? Do they get loose easily? I have heard that Voyager rid Megatron can get very floppy...

I like the figure, but I still don't know if I should get it...

When i first seen pictures of this guy i thought the figure sucked but after seeing these im 100% sold, alt mode looks great robot mode is pretty good and the gerwalk mode is pure win. I just really hope the price of voyagers is still $20 when this guy comes out, prices have been fluctuating in my area and not for the better. So far voyager have stayed at $20 but we all know that can change real quickly.

You can take them apart and remove the spring. I've done that with Optimus, Starscream, and Bulkhead and they're not so bad once you do that.

Very nice to see someone actually take a shot of the undercarriage. That's the part no one ever seems to think about, but it really matters in terms of a realistic looking alt mode--especially for aircraft, since they'll be flying overhead relative to any other toys.

Yeah - RID Megatron gets pretty floppy over time. Same with RID Prime's legs. A little glue on his ball joints and he is solid again, but Megatron is going to be a pain to stiffen back up again. Arms and legs are getting floppy syndrome on my figure.

Agreed. I, for one, am quite fond of Optimus' weapon and Bulkhead's isn't awful (in robot mode). Starscream's is a tad too gigantic for my tastes though. It's an incredibly simple operation as well. And if you decide you really don't like the big block on the back, it's easily removed. :) Overall though...they are a GIANT step down from the Mechtech weapons. I know they get a lot of hate, but I also like them, they're novel, if a bit large sometimes. I do wish they'd put some thought into incorporating them better, but eh. *shrug* They've been made already and they are what they are, lol.
