Got one. LOVE it.
Before we go on...

He smokes MP Megs in my opinion.
Damn straight, he does. MP-05 doesn't even compare. This thing is transformable without things breaking (hence the removable pieces design), plus it can actually stand up under it's own weight, no die cast or tarnish to worry about, and he's a reasonable size. MP-05 is just ridiculously sized. I can't wait for MP-05v2. (C'mon, we all know TakaraTomy will update him sooner, or later. It's just a matter of time.)
Now, on we go...
If this is a sign of things to come from Toyworld...we might all be saying "FansProject, who?" Seriously, it's THAT good.
My only criticisms are:
-Shoulder peg is frighting.
-Trigger clicked on first pull. (Now nothing.)
-I wish the silencer and stock actually did something. (I think they have something planned. Too many holes and ports on all of the pieces to leave them unusable.
-The lack of face detail paint. (Fortunately, Pigma Micron pens will do the trick. .005 micron, to be exact.)
-Energon sword and pick axe are just ridiculously stupid looking. (I didn't even take them out of the package. Bleh.)
The transformation is insane, but good. The posability is just ridiculous. You can see through the scope! He feels nice and solid to me. The lightpiping is amazing. Seriously, he looks incredible with light pumping through.
I would've like to see a MP-05-esque Energon saber produced for this guy. Why they gave him such a ridiculous weapon is beyond me. I mean, he looks STUPID holding a purple, translucent LEAF.
He was WELL worth the $108.05 I paid. (That included shipping and tracking, btw.) Captured Prey came through, but I have to admit that their shipping is a tad sluggish. I do like their order system, though.
It actually went through it, step by step. 1.) Order confirmation. 2.) Payment processed. 3.) Shipped. (At this point, you're given a tracking number.) And it emailed me at each step! I mean...wow! My only complaint is that they don't specify when they ship. It's basically a wait and see and then out of the blue it's "Your item has shipped." and then the tracking doesn't work. ...because they printed out a label, then shipped it another day. Which, I know CP isn't Orson/Sidecutter's primary work, which is fine, but a heads up of "We ship once or twice a week" (you get the idea) would've been great. If I know what I'm getting into, going in, I have no complaints, nor do I have the right to complain. I ordered it Sunday night, received it Friday afternoon. Which is not terrible, by any means, but it sat for close to 36 hours before it actually shipped, according to the tracking info. As for the store itself? Clean, easy to use, honest in their descriptions. If you're patient with shipping, they're well worth using. They certainly impressed me! (They pack well, too.)
If you can find this figure, just buy it. Don't wait, pull that trigger. (Pun intended.)
