    You sir, have 'won'. But how and where; we'll have to wait and see. :thumbs2: 

    A small - but important - detail that I forgot about.

    Haha - I've been on a social media fast for many months now but you're tempting me to break it! And yeah, I believe it was Gamerlingual who relayed the message from TT at that show. Like others have said, at this point they may decided to just save the full reveal for the Generations book in November. I think the rushed MPM-08 might've really thrown a wrench in their reveal/release schedule.

    Haha - we'll all have "won" once we have this sucker in our hands!

    I only remember because that head-gun's chrome was chipped immediately out of the box :(

    My guess was we wouldn't see anything till October,as I took as they would have him ready to go in color by that point with him finally being revealed in Oct( this month fingers crossed).
    People used to complain Takara should do like 3Ps and let us know what they are working on so we would know what to expect. After Dinobot and Prime 3.0 I doubt we hear that again.

    Personally I'd be disappointed with chrome. It's possible they could use diecast. However it's fun to speculate.

    Why not give the option for both? Like with Grapple and Inferno.

    Hah, all of this was sussed out a long time ago by fine folks in many threads across these boards, as well as myself and @Dean ML in PMs over the last two years that we've been anticipating OP-3. Staring at cartoon stills and comparing them to action figures has sharpened my eyes somewhat when it comes to attention to certain details, but that's nothing to do with my jobs (teacher and musician).

    I agree with Dean, and predict chrome everywhere. The + version can have the chrome pelvis and thighs (and maybe even chrome instead of grey on the obliques). I don't mind either way. Swappable parts would be good, but I'm not sure if they warrant the extra parts count of making them detachable when they may as well use that budget to just make them chrome.

    85-90% sure on chrome, 99.99% sure on multiple helmets :thumb

    Even Dinoot's sword is chromed and they could have skipped the chrime for Cordon but it's there. I'm not the biggest fan in the world for chrome detailing but if done right to compliment a figure, so be it.

    I'm liking the idea of parts swapping. If the chrome pieces can be easily detached, I can see this option for a flagship character.

    I'm totally fine with tasteful chrome. That's a nice photoshop job, Seth. I cannot wait for this. Megatron, Sunstreaker, and the other recent MPs have been some of my favorites, so this is going to be right up my alley.

    So gotta ask. How many are in the category of blue translucent windows? And how many believe clear? I feel blue is the way to go

    A less saturated blue.

    Here'es what i think, the windows will be translucent in truck mode and sightly blue in bot mode, as the section changes a bit.

    The blue should match the windows of the + versions. So far, we have +Sideswipe, Sunstreaker and +Prowl. On the other hand, we have Hot Rod with a lighter blue and Exhaust with a deeper blue. For me, an acceptable blue would be the carbots and possibly Hot Rod. But I don’t wan to see Prime’s windows going toward Exhaust’s blue.

    Thrust was the lucky one. The way Prime was shooting down Decepticons, there should have been a lot more that were damaged.

    Actually, Blitzwing escaped Prime’s assault and was set to be be an Autobot.
