To me it's just too much of just an advancement in the original's mold and not a re-imagining of the figure like Universe Powerglide is.



The only reason Hasbro "re-imagines" the figures is to make them marketable to today's children. I understand todays kids need something more complex to keep them happy, but us collectors just display them. Theres nothing wrong with the simpleness of his transformation. I think the figure goes well with the other deluxe sized figures.

I think it's the handgun that was part of the Fansproject G3 trailer - it came with a set of chrome guns for a handful of Classics characters that got shafted in that department, and Bee was given a small handgun. Could be wrong though, someone correct me on this if I am.

Looks good. I bought one yesterday from RobotKingdom, they had the best price that I could find. I plan on getting the die-cast one as well.

Great review, I have been wondering if anyone had this yet. I didn't see any stress marks from the pics displayed, I guess they are not very noticable. Hopefully mine will be here next weekend from KOToys. I bought him alone with their KO of classics Skywarp and Cliffjumper :D

When eating planets alone isn't enough to satisfy the Chaos Bringer's hunger, Unicron comes to Earth to fill up on McDonald's. McDonald's golden arches will light our darkest hour (when the Chaos Bringer would not share) by clogging his arteries, raising his blood pressure, and giving him diabetes.

Good eye, indeed it's one the guns from the FansProject G3 trailer.

They're really not, but I figured I better mention them.

Sorry guys I didn't put a lot of effort into the written portion of the review. Figured the pictures would speak for themselves. If anyone has any specific questions I'll try to answer them.

Are the Autobot symbols stickers or painted on?

Robot Kingdom also has them, and the price seems reasonable.

Also, I've been working on a Wikialpha entry for the Glider toy. Anyone who wants to add to it, please do so. We need more editors for the third party Transformers Wikialpha articles.

I sort of like it but not enough to buy it my main problem with it is the lack of detail in the mould it self

His thighs and shoulders and forearms are just plain boring it sticks out like sore thumb to me in the photo with bee and warpath if he had the classics look it could have been so much better even his guns are plain

To me its just a deluxe G1 PG ,a good neo stand in for some but not for me.
