    Yeah what a news day indeed!

    Oh and notice the scheme is based on the anniversary Primal that will be out soon. Is this a hint towards the new mold Primal? or a re-issue of 90's Primal? ooo

    That is a spectacular repaint with minimal retool. Bravo!

    This was the right mold to use, and the colours are nice.

    But, and I'm willing to change my mind if better pictures prove me wrong, the head sculpt is not good. Not good at all, given Primal's is if anything the easiest to get right...

    That is a great use of a mold IMO.

    I know I am going to BotCon this year, but was on the fence with the exclusives. This is a good start to pushing me off this fence.

    I didn't even know that mold could pose it's legs that way. It looks really sharp in those colors. I've always said the most important part of how some of these toys look is how they're painted. Pretty cool!

    Also, yes, I unfortunately forget who has the sig pic with this idea already in it, but he should be happy indeed.

    Very impressive. I have pretty high hopes for this set, and after seeing this pic and the possible Ransack repaint, I can't say that I'm disapointed.

    Ears aren't good, crest is too small, face lacks definition, bit too rounded...

    Like I say, it's not a good pic, and further pics might help. But from here I think it's fairly poor.

    Wow! That's fantastic!

    Great deco on that mold... looks a lot better than either version of Crumplezone.

    I'm with Phazer on the head, but I think that's because the head has to have the same limitations size-wise than Crumplezone's original head, so it ends-up looking weird as a Primal head.

    P.S.: I'm exhausted from all the news today. It's hard to keep up.

    I think the head's fine, given its size limitations.

    Looks great! I hope I can make it there this year.
