I got around to doing the boiling water fix on the joint, and mine is nigh on perfect now.

I really enjoy this figure. The only real criticisms I can muster are an inelegant hood transformation (stuffing the hood and grill down between the headlights feels like it's going to break something) and that the legs are a little chunky in the calf.

Otherwise, this is a great figure, once fixed. I've voted "Only if", with the caveat being you need to be willing to do a bit of work to fix up the figure out of the box.

Once fixed, this probably edges Stinger for best in size class for this wave.

One thing I only noticed today is that the roof kibble actually tabs into place in robot mode. If you look closely you can see little pegs and a rounded nook up near the sholders, and the clear plastic hinge actually has a slot. If you get the angle right and apply pressure in the right spot it actually stays in place really well. Definitely increased my opinion of the figure.
