    A/E/C molds, which means a purchase, for me. Looks good.

    He sure is....blue.

    The head sculpt is pretty neat, given that it's young Kup.

    I don't love it, I don't hate it.

    HEADSHOT!

    Wow - there's an example of the "how long would you last with vital organs hanging out of your alt-mode?" Q...

    Wow.

    I love that mold, but what a horrible choice for Kup. DEFINITELY not what I would have picked.

    Glad I'm passing on Botcon now. No regrets here. Would have liked it if I was going, but it doesn't enthuse me now.

    "The future is wide open" is right.

    I honestly did not see that one coming. I thought he was gonna be Energon Inferno.

    I like it. I would never have thought of using that mold for him, but it looks good.

    Oh, I will say thanks to FP for letting us see at least 1 toy before we have to purchase. Now we have an idea of the direction of the set.

    Also, I like the "more than just 2 pictures" as well.

    Looks cool, but I think I'll try and wait for one more reveal before committing to buy an Iacon package.

    It looks crap at Kup, but it's looks good on Ratchet.

    Doohhhhh the headsculpt is so on the fence for me. It does tons right for the concept and the stuff I dislike about it may or may not be relevant to the aforementioned things-done-right.

    I like the smoother face (young!), but I wish he had more defined eyebrows for the masculinity factor.

    Nice rims.

    There was a rumor last week that, among predicting Red Alert as Kup, mentioned that Scourge was Cybertron Sideways and Flak was yet another CD Scattorshot.

    If fake, it's certainly one of the most plausible I've ever heard.
