    Wasn't sure if they could make this set any worse, but I guess they have :lol 

    Ugly colors, odd character choice, more Shattered Glass nonsense.

    It would have been way cooler in the G2 Animated Pimp Straxus deco. But then I would have had to spend craz money to get one or two.

    Not bad at all, a good mold and I think the color will be nice once I don't have the sun bleaching the video. :p

    Uhm. what? Banana Phone, meet your ride, the Banana tank.

    2) pretty sure that color schemes is yellow and lime green, not gold and green.

    3) the red eyes are kind of awesome

    4) not really digging the comic cover.

    With SO many obscure characters to portray with a figure throughout the history of the Transformers universe, the fact that they just keep falling back on Shattered Glass decos just REEKS of laziness or a total lack of imagination.

    "there he is"

    You know if you have nothing interesting to say about a figure you had a day in designing it's a good sign it's a shit figure

    so let me get this straight.

    Coming up with a completely new deco, and reimagining a character completely from the ground up to work in a different context...

    ... is lazier than taking something pre-existing and then recreating it?

    I think I like it. That makes 3 figures so far that I like. I'm willing to bet I will like the junkions/insecticons but we'll see after there are pics. It really is a shame what happened this year because they do put out some pretty nice exclusives.
