Just saw these in Wololworths the other day and decided to get one.

And whilst first impressions of it were really awesome I have since concluded that it is a really bad toy.
While it is finely crafted and durable it is over designed and too ridged for play.

Each part of the movable pieces has a locking pin/tap/nub that it uses to lock each transformation into place.
This tends to make it really slow to transform as each part has to be twisted and coerced into disengaging before you can move it.

Aside from that it still looks pretty good.
here are some more pics, I have included my G1 Optimus and trailer so you can see a size comparison.

That looks pretty neat! I see it runs off a couple of watch batteries too and lights up! You're going to have to snap a couple pics of that in a dimly lit area. :)

Sure thing, here you go:
First up is a picof Roadbot with his light on in vehicular mode
Second is a pic of his Light Axe
These are the only things that light up.
