I love it and love to have it, but alittle pricey for me and christmas being around doesnt help either. Oh well, but later one next year or wait for Roddy to hit state side.

Argh, that alt mode is just so ugly. Like a car thats reversed into a caravan and then beaten with an ugly stick.

On the one hand OMG that robot mode is teh secksy and must have! =P~
On the other hand the alt-mode is worse looking than the original toy.

I love this figure! He's a masterpiece, and an awesome likeness of his G1 TFTM counterpart!

Of course, it is a must have. However, I am not overly impressed by any of the modes. If the yellow fin can be pulled further out in Winnebago mode, it would look better. The car mode is ugly, it always was. The MP version just enhances the ugly. So most likely I will display it in robot mode, standing on the base, or have it in Winnebago mode. And I was very excited about this news when it came out, and I would have paid whatever, but now that I cooled off, I will wait for the Hasbro version to hit America, and not pay $200+shipping for the Japanese version.

So the difference between robot modes is: fins in a slightly different place; hips extended by three millimeters; longer face. For that doesn't count as two robot modes.

Obviously I'm buying him though.

I am so torn on whether to buy this guy now or wait on Hasbro. I one of every other MP mold. I like the look of this mold. The problem is do I want to spend $200 on him if I can get him cheaper when Hasbro releases their version? The only MP I have seen in stores around here is Skywarp. No Walmart Starscream and no TRU Grimlock yet. Decisions decisions.

The trailer, both as a vehicle and as a "battle platform" are the parts of this mold that I can live without, so I am holding off for the hasbro release.

I wouldn't turn it down if the hasbro version came with it, but it's not a must have for me. I hands down LOVE the car mode, and it will probably be displayed as such.
