    Awesome. Looks badass now! I still think it's a preview figure, though... but that doesn't mean it's any less cool.

    Why do I get the feeling that these are the pics that Yizhi showed the people who were interested in buying the figure?

    Peaugh, can you confirm or deny that?

    Its NOT G1 Soundwave so yes, liberties can be taken with how he looks even his face.

    Looks a little busy in the mask area. Wonder if that's just for the Cybertron mode or if the Earth mode will also look that way?

    Wow, I really like the movie take on the G1 head, very cool. I'm with NIDARAM12 on this being a new Deluxe preview figure, maybe followed up by a Voyager class Earth mode?

    Dear Fwiffo,

    You owe me a new pair of pants. I crapped myself in sheer amazement of this toy. :mad 

    Sincerely, Eric

    :p  Anywho, I have to agree with Nidaram12, this has to be a preview figure of sorts. I mean, it IS the first ROTF toy we've actually seen so far (not counting Universe Superion, that's just a Universe toy in ROTF packaging). If so, then maybe we might see more Preview figures...

    Hmmm....too much grey, and the sculpted fists are kinda odd. Hopefully he looks better in the movie. His face is also longish, yet reminiscent of Soundwave.

    No way in hell I'm buying this.

    Nope, these are new to me. And STILL mistransformed, albeit closer to the actual product.

    Interesting, must have one weird looking altmode, and i agree about an earlier "vector prime" feel to it

    WOW. i want. now.

    i love the movie line. it was a chance to make the TFs be more mecha-human, and less robot...

    i like it. but he has closed fists. no weapons.

    Yeah, it looks like a preview toy like the protoforms from the last movie! It just doesnt look very detailed nor a very complex transformation!

    Why are those retards on Don Murphy saying he has a mouth already? I mean even Gaogaigar has the same kind of "mouth" except it isn't a mouth.

    Looking at this, I bet we get a nice insectoid mouth in the film.:puke2: 

    Body design is a mess too.

    Wow. Hey. Not as bad as genocide. I guess now I'm cautiously pessimistic.

    Aaah! So it wasnt a head what popped out of the vehicle mode. Looks good, it does look like a protoform toy. Could have more blue but right now i like it.
