Okay, pic time. And I think I'll just keep all of the pics here rather than necroing the Grindrod thread too.
I have to apologize to whoever was concerned that these were a little big. After having them next to Bumblebee, I kind of agree. The Alt Modes are fine, but in bot mode, BB is a head shorter. Still, they look awesome!

Now, on to my main complaint about Aurora, the weapon. I tried to take some pics of what I am talking about.
The barrel folds nicely down into that cavity. I was happy, until I tried to extend the barrel again.
I don't know how well y'all can see it in the picture, but there is no ledge on the back side to lever the barrel out, nor is there a way to easily reach the barrel inside the cavity. I have to use my (highly scratch-prone) custom made tool to grab the receiver below the barrel to pull it out. I have already scratched it some. Still, given the pattern already on the barrel, it's hardly noticeable. Still, I expect more from a $50 toy...
So, when considering the merits of joining Va'al or Burn, I have to say that Va'al's obsession with Alpha Bravo is so awesome in its own right that it all but made the decision easy.
But, Burn has a stinky Whirl...Banner image shamelessly stolen from Tyberion's signature...
