Right off the bat, the weight and size of this guy is phenomenal. He's easily 3lbs and barely fits in my IKEA shelves. He's got tons of stiff, squeaky Fanstoys ratchets, diecast everywhere, and fairly good balance.
In humanoid form, he's held together very snugly by tabs. Nothing wobbles or otherwise inhibits posing. He's got an excellent face sculpt, nice subtle painted details, and electric blue jet cockpit dead center. Looks stunning!
Transformation is probably the simplest of all Fanstoys. Nothing felt too bad, other than the thin tab on the neck that holds the backpack. Mine snapped during transformation, but a piece of Velcro in its place and all is good, if not even better.
Overall, he's a huge improvement over previous attempts. The scale, detail, and design is almost flawless. Worth the wait? Definitely!
- Perfect G1 look.
- Scale matches the cartoon. This is HUGE.
- Great transformation.
