    I'm still confused on his final colors. The show shows him as black, a picture in I think famitsu over at fan2fan has him as ligh blue, and then the pic we just saw show him as dark blue. I know THIS is an unpainted prototype, but seriously, wtf?

    Who knows Pete, who knows?

    Anyway I really like the mold. Hopefully the final colors won't ruin it.

    From a distance it almost looks like a G1'esque Omega Supreme. I might need to get one to kitbash.

    All that and it's made of both delicious white and dark chocolate.

    They should start doing that with more TFs. I want to eat a starscream with peanut-butter nullrays, damnit!

    Here's a question, not pertaining to the figure, but involving it.

    TFAuctions.com apparently has been endorsed (I think) or acknowledged by Hasbro last I checked.

    Why on Earth would they post a prototype auction knowing this?

    If I'm correct in this (which "if" is applicable because I'm wrong plenty of times) this could prove the idea that Hasbro does leak these to test the market. I always wondered (there is compelling evidence on both sides of the issue) and perhaps this proves it. I don't know, kinda grasping at straws I guess.

    I acually kinda like the mold in white...but if its black that would make it even better. Sign me on for buying this guy as soon as it's released!

    Be interesting to see if it disappears, certainly...

    edit: Or possibly it's part of an intentional "sting" operation.

    Maybe Hasbro want a piece of the overpriced prototype selling action

    Menasor looks good, but I'm sick of seeing un-painted prototypes. Show me some robot mode in colour dammit!

    Also, I havent seen much of Quickmix. Both figures are (I assume) going to be released around the same time, so why no pics of Quickmix protos?

    No way, it's a one shot deal for at best $200. For a huge company like Hasbro that's nothing.

    There was a thread with this guy in final colors in the last two weeks, he looked pretty good. Darked than I expected though.

    But those were vehicle mode pics. I know the cartoon has shown us what Menasor will look like, but I still want to see some good, clear shots of his final, coloured robot mode.

    Not that I know of. However, I HAVE definately seen pics of him with his chest open, perhaps it is a storage area. I have no information as to its use in the show, however.

    The Minicon can be stored inside his chest, but that isn`t needed for his robot mode.

    Yeah? I thought it was both modes. Oh well.
