Fed up of not seeing him in a shop, or indeed online, I snapped and spent some birthday money in Kapow on-
He is absolutely superb. Perfection. Wonderfully 'Siege'. Marvelous.
Edit: the only thing I dislike about him is the price. 'Leader Class' my cock. Double the price for... a box. A foldy out box. Now, it's a fun box. I see many happy hours of fun with the foldy out box. Small Child has already had lots of fun putting things in it. But double the price, more or less? Outrageous. Just call 'em 'Voyager Plus' or something and drop the price by a tenner. Lying bastards. If there'd have been a molded bit which looked like a pile of coal on top of the box in train mode, I'd have accepted it.
Earthrise Cliffjumper showing us that size matters not by, er, toting a massive gun.
But really, he may be a little short for a Deluxe but he makes up for it in engineering and accessories. This isn't a stealth Legends release. Lots of posability and a more interesting transformation than first appears (though it is let down by some partsforming). The weapon looks great as a bazooke but also splits down into smaller, fun, bits and pieces including the skis to attache in car mode.
Common practice round these parts. You tend to hope the red card through the door says 'parcel in the bin' instead of 'now you've got to wait until Saturday morning when the parcel office is open to get this and even then we might be randomly shut for no reason'.
Bin men come 7am and only take the bin if it's on the street. Postman comes around midday and only bins parcels if the bin is off the street.
It only goes wrong if the postman doesn't put the card through the door. Which has happened once. I found a parcel with G1 Blurr in it entirely by intuition a few years ago. I felt it ought to have arrived, so went and had a feel around in the dark, put my hand on it straight away.
And yes, that happens to us, too. A gift for the Scraplet that Colin sent us stayed in the bin for a bit because they didn't bother putting a card through the door. Luckily he'd been sent a message telling us the parcel had been handed to us, so we knew we needed to search for it...
