Wow. Hasbro did a good job of bringing the concept to toy form. A toy of a character from a novel which many kids dont even know about, whereas they havent even made toys of all the characters from the show. And if they can do this good a job on thundertron, a character which once again not many kids are going to recongize, why cant they make a better looking beast hunters line? I think voyager wise they could have done breakdown, insecticon, shockwave maybe someone a bit more important...ugh hasbro logic frustrates me. :BANG_HEAD:

Weapon: Rocket Launcher
Indeed. I finally got mine the other day, and I'm blown away away with how much I like it! If anything, he could perhaps use a bit more paint, but I love the silver gradient. And blue being my favorite color has a bit of an impact as well, haha.

Also, as has been mentioned before, he bears a passing resemblance to Musume Liger, and I loves me some Zoids.

Close. Exiles. But, it's a common slip that happens all the itme with a lot of people. ;)
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
