Agreed. I have seen several pics like that, and they make me reconsider too. However, they largely seem to obscure the little square grill and the fact that his torso is so short and squatty. When I then see him standing straight up, I'm far less enthused.

When there is a $100 KO, maybe I'll get over my hangups, but there is zero chance I'm paying $300-400 just for a nostalgic action pose.

Exactly how I see him too. The midrift is awful, but cover it with an arm and a crunch and suddenly he's the Prime of my dreams. The old man head is perfect to my eyes and what makes my nostalgia gush. Come on trailer-less KO that I'll never transform!

I won't be buying any of them, but I agree, they look solid. It's hard to go wrong with G1 goodness.

That's probably the best Cliffjumper hasbro has ever produced. If I didn't have the XTB figure, I'd use that one as an MP fill-in, assuming the backpack wasn't gigantic.
