I think you got that GDO Springer a year ago, actually. And it's not a triple changer the way this is, it's not an alien vehicle the way this is, and it's not big the way this is. Hopefully if you change your mind down the road you'll have recourse to still get him.

What's that bad about Eject? I mean, granted he's not a good action figure since he can only move his shoulders, but he does transform and puke out of Blaster, and he's better-looking than Rumble & Frenzy.
I opened up Blitzwing, Eject, and Ramhorn today. I've got to say, I think y'all are being quite generous in your reviews.
Eject is a turd. Better than Steeljaw (what isn't?), but still a mess. D
Ramhorn is the best cassette I've seen (not counting that Ravage that came with Hound, obviously). The weird shape of his head bothers me, but, other than that, he's pretty good. I just don't think he's worth $5--or, really, given how weak Eject is, $10. C+
I saw this on another review, it turns out that something else has to be done in order to get it to fit correctly, another step in the process, I don't remember what it was though, I think it was when the guy transformed it from jet to tank.
the rubberized nosecone doesn't attach properly,
You're insane. Why would this be a nice touch when it was the weakest element of the original tank mode? It only looked backwards too, so it's not even passable as part of the tank.
(And, call me insane, but I actually think making the jet cockpit visible in tank mode, like the vintage one, would've been a nice touch.)
I don't have him yet, but the faces rotate vertically, they're part of a wheel/triangle design. They're rubbery plastic, which annoys some collectors, but it might make the hot water trick release them.
BTW, has anyone switched the faces? The instructions seem to indicate the three faces are on a wheel and the interior of his head simply rolls around. But, if that's the case, it's so tight I don't want to risk breaking the head off until I know for sure.
