That vehicle mode definitely seemed like it was going to be more substantial in photos, but I still like it. I won't bother picking up the remold though, I think it's Jetfire or Silverbolt or something.
I transformed all my ANIMATED figures today into vehicle mode, they had been scrapping in robot mode this week but it just seemed like a thing to do. I still haven't found Soundwave though. I forgot how oddball some of the transformations in that line are, especially Ultra Magnus' shoulders and everything about Blurr, but I really love that Blurr figure in both modes so it's totally worth it, and I actually was able to remember prior frustrations I had in those areas and work around them for the most part. I found new appreciation for Oil Slick of all things, and got Jazz to twirl his nunchucks before transforming him. Still a great line.
