    Just saw this on the Heroic Decepticon's FB page :) 

    Though I didn't see anyone post this yet. But if it has been posted, my apologies.

    Yeah, that's why I didn't post a thread. It was like "Here's the image you've all already seen like 2 years ago, but with a new background".

    I am excited for this character, but the mold choice is horrible IMO.

    yes it slips into the gun/knife weapon thing to make an integrated looking weapon.


    Face totally looks like zartan.

    Head sculpt is meh.. Is it a resculpt?
    Why not just use the WFC soundwave head and save the remolded head.

    I don't like that at all.

    Shouldn't his crotch and legs be blue?

    And his head mold looks off too..

    Also, no headband :( 

    The Cold Slither tampo is really the only thing that feels close to right.

    Is that a Cold Slither reference? It looks like an homage to the GI Joe episode where Zartan and the Dreadnoks put together a metal band called Cold Slither.

    Overall this set seems kind of lazy, like it was thrown together in a hurry.

    Gah! That headsculpt! Get it away get it away!Yes I realize FunPub is constrained by the toy's transformation for how they sculpt the head but god that headsculpt is misshapen. Also no bandanna makes me sad. The paint apps are certainly interesting though.

    Edit: So according to the Botcon twitter there will be a headband accessory, on sale at the club store.

    I actually REALLY like this. I was not happy about the mold choice, but the attention to detail and color scheme works GREAT.

    Well, this one's definitely a keeper. Going to have to outfit him with Animated 'beak and do up a headband myself though. *sadness*

    Upgrades! Give me upgrades somebody!

    ETA: Just in from Twitter
