The white hands stand out a bit, but that's a very cool looking toy.

I'm going to remain sitting for a while . . .

EDIT: This is the only movie toy that I've really liked so far. Jazz's art looked nice, but the rabbit ears that they added ended up killing him for me. I'll probably get that action battler dealy Jazz, since he looks a bit closer to the design.

i do like the color scheme they used, he really looks like a piece of military hardware with the repetative blues and blacks, but the hands... i might repaint the hands honestly, they would have looked great in black or maybe a dark grey, just not white. he does look like he could pose well, just will have to see more pictures for a final educated opinion on him.

The helicopter is the one that was originally going to be Soundwave before all the fanboys started complaining because he wouldn't be a size-shifting tape player, yeah?

I'm remembering that now because the head actually looks a bit like Soundwave.

Most of the movie toys have looked very good so far, but this is the first one that I've seen that I might pick up.

Perhaps that's not quite the final paint scheme? Surely Scorponok won't remain that color.

Beyond that...holy crap, this is an awesome figure.

I wish Bay would just rename him Soundwave. Oh well, that's what I'm naming this awesome figure at home.

Agreed, the hands are a bit distracting from the rest of the figure. None-the-less, this is by far the best transformation of a helicopter to date. I think the only movie figure that might give it a run for it's money is the larger Optimus figure. It looks pretty damned detailed. But this is definately better than the others, ie: Jazz, Bumblebee, Wratchet, etc.

Ferkkit.

Even more awesomer than before. I'm running out of superlatives. But the hands? Yeah, look like the kind of gloves that would get him into a society marriage or mark him out as the entertainer for the evening. The hands so need to be black.

Hmm, the white hands in contrast to the rest of the body makes me think of how classic cartoon characters, such as Bugs Bunny, would generally be seen wearing nothing but a pair of white gloves.
