Despite its flaws, I like it. I'll get the Entertainment Pack version with Megs and the kids. Then I'll get the Voyager when that comes out.

Yikes!! he's HIDEOUS!

Those forearms are terrible! that wrist joint hinge or whatever you call that totally mangles his arms up. IMO. Plus that panel attached to said "joint" makes it look like he's got wizard sleeves.

And his upper thighs look like girl thighs. And he's wearing girls underwear by the looks of it too.

He just doesn't seem very well thought out to me. AT ALL.

Incredible transformation for a Deluxe.

Oh, and this is how you do a review. Camera was well aimed, he was well spoken and didn't ramble much, if at all. Impressive.

No it wont. The back of the matrix lifts up. it's one big panel and you can take the plastic tray with the figure out.

Yes, but would any of you walk around the SDCC wearing this thing around your neck?

I'd have to be really drunk to consider it. Better yet, that hot babe on my arm can put it round her lovely neck and wear it instead. That would be far more entertaining. :-)

Keep in mind that getting this figure is the only way to get the very nice-looking Deluxe Megatron figure and the human figures.

I agree that it is a good review, although he makes the same mistake again and again. Its a Prime figure, not a Animated figure. Unfortunatly he wasn't flawless.
