Ya know, I was really excited about this figure when it first hit the web (in fuzzy pic form). But the more I see of it, the less I like it. As I always say, to each his/her own if you like it and buy it. Ultimately, it's the "back-pack former" concept that I hate; it comes across as lazy from a design standpoint. Sure, the robot looks good (minus the lack of paint and hollow parts) and even the vehicle mode is fine. But it's when you try and view this figure at different angles does it appear like two worlds were smashed together in hopes of satisfying the collector group. Had it maintained more of the character's traditional transformation (no fake chest cockpit!), I would've picked it up. I'm glad Hasbro is creating more of the traditional G1 characters, but please, please, PLEASE design them well! Until they start designing better voyager/leader Generations figures, I'll only buy Masterpiece. And perhaps only that line will satisfy my pickiness. ;-)

Agreed.

I wonder if removing the boosters will help minimize that bulky look. I hope we can get a third party upgrade to replace the metallic parts. Those drive me nuts.
