    Huh. Rumors were true.

    Armada Side Swipe color scheme?

    NOT the colors I expected, but I guess Seibertron was right about it being Jazz! So it's the SG version of Armada Treadshot, and it even got a new head! Does that mean Metalhawk won't get one?

    It's very pretty, but not much to get excited about IMO. I would say "well I'll just sell it," but I'm worried others will feel the same! I mean...Treadshot! Who the hell is Treadshot?

    Dang, I was ready to pay them today so I wouldn't have to sit by my keyboard anymore. I get a slight Insecticon vibe from Treadshot.

    Not the colour I was hoping for (I wanted a repurpose Dead End colourscheme), but I approve of more uses of this mold. Kudos Botcon.

    So he's colored after Armada Side Swipe, because Universe Treadshot was a redeco of Armada Side Swipe.

    Nice to see they're referencing some more things outside of G1in Shattered Glass!

    From what I can make out, that is a sharp headsculpt. Obscurity be damned, I dig that!

    -edit-

    Slight closeup. He's got like, some sort of bandit mask going on. And that color scheme could totally pass for something G2, which I double dig.

    Looking at it again, the head sculpt is fantastic on that figure.

    Looks neat, though I'm personally not really interested in it.

    Oh wow.

    You know what? This being something I had no attached expectations to once those rumors came out that it wasn't the Action Master......

    I really really like this figure. Seriously, this is one I genuinely want.

    I take it the head is gonna be used for Kick-Off?
