Transformation is rather straightforward, but surprisingly intuitive with the leg transformation, although he does suffer from some clearance issues whn transformingg the torso in either direction. Articulation is also decent, starting from the feet, his toes and heel can raise and lower independantly, the knees have about 90 degrees of bend, the leg rotates above the knee, and the hips are on a ball joint. The shoulders and head are also on ball joints, and his double-jointed elbows allow for a full 180 bend, and the wrists have limited rotation.
The main attraction of the set is his Micron, Gora, who transforms from a small gorilla, that bears resemblance to Animated Lugnut, into a massive fusion cannon for Megatron. The fusion Cannon mode can deploy a blade from the front, and is so big it borders on being outright silly. Gora comes unpainted and unassembled, and is where most of the stickers go. the pieces, once removes from the sprew, snap together easily, but very securely. As a robot Gora has up-and-down movement in the head, full rotation at the shoulders, and his back legs can tilt. He also has a total of five 5mm pegs culpted on his arms and feet, allowing for further Arms Micron Madness.
The only thing that stops me from giving a full five stars is thedifficulty with the stickers, and the clearance problems with the torso. still overall good buy.
