Are you sure "no one"? I like "Cowards do survive" better. Well, at least he is not saying who he is.

Wicked. That's pushed Bludgeon from "ZOMG it's a Bludgeon who's a tank and a samurai robot and has articulation, even though he looks a bit squat" over the edge into "Good grief that looks awful."

Money = saved.

I reckon he looks like a waste of money I could spend on lovely lovely steak.

Agree to disagree.

Bullshit. The pair of you should fight for our entertainment. Who wants the sword and the shield, and who wants the trident and the net?

I'd have thought a keyboard and the net would be more appropriate...

That looks ugly too.

At least the different colours helped break up the ugly.

Hmmm . . . I like him, but I'm a bit worried for the chrome which probably won't last long. I'll be picking up three nest figures (Brawn, Dirge and Rampage) so I'll have just enough to qualify.

I'll probably just ask people on here to send me stickers they won't be using.

Please?

It looks cool, and it would be pretty cool to have a mail-away figure, but doesn't look like it's worth buying a bunch of toys I probably wasn't going to get in the first place.

Ouch! That thing hurts my eyes!

I really don't think it works, myself...

"And now let's just see him next to Mindwipe..."

How many times can you compare an unreleased figure to another unreleased figure in a single review? At least three times anyway. I mean, everyone must jave a Mindwipe... It took until he finally brought out Leader Megatron for me to have an idea of the size of this guy.

But, more on topic, Leader Class Starscream is looking totally amazing - if I only buy one more Transformer (which could well be the case for the immediate future...) it will be him!

Agree, I think he is just show-off or commercial purposes. Why he uses two leaders from first movie is still a question to me.

Because having unreleased toy X before everyone else multiplied by having unreleased toy Y before everyone else = cool person, obviously.
