He's a decent TOY, but he has a lot of problems, which prevent him from being a truly awesome figure.
Here's a video where I show how to fix some of his problems:

Then a 16 minute video on how to fix the figure...
That screams no buy to me. Even if I was into the weaponizers, I shouldn't have to spend 16 minutes fixing my figure straight out of the box...

The wheels on his arms look horrible.
What happened, Hasbro? You were doing great in ROTF, with leader class OP and Starscream.

You know, this figure doesn't look too bad. He's pretty well-sculpted, and for once the gimmick doesn't really get in the way. He's fairly well-detailed, the light-piping is great, good transformation and looks pretty good in both modes. Of course, he's way out of scale, but what can you do.

Two thumbs up Hasbro!

And he doesnt look to bad, mainly the back is the problem.
Like most transformers with a body gimmick.
I would be way more interested in a weaponizer megatron though

Good thorough review but a lot of it seem like it was just trying to convince us that it's not a piece a crap that it is.
The FE figure was a close attempt, but the lower body, strange shoulder angle, and scrunched head made it look only passable.
The RiD figure was decently fun, but overall pathetic and it barely looked like the show model.
This figure is more accurate than the other figures, that's all I meant.

I'd be on board with a deluxe or voyager sized version of this figure, that had the same basic sculpt, more articulate ankles, and some chest scrunching. I'd also be willing to wait a year for that, because I already have a bunch of Prime Bumblebees and I'd like to see some more characters get toys.
