    Actually it looks pretty good. The orange and blue really complement one another. Also happy it has the missile launchers. Can't wait to get mine!

    Don't like the white blasters as much as the chrome... But it's good to see the modded spoiler, and the color scheme works really well.

    What's with the blue splotch on his visor/head?

    Looking nice, Pete. Sadly still doesn't justify the international member price, so I won't be signing up.

    That actually looks a whole lot nicer than I expected.

    That really doesn't look bad. Still not going to shell out all that money for membership for that.

    I love the color scheme. The blasters look great IMO. I'm excited for this figure.

    Pretty spiffy. I'm not crazy about the Autobot symbol on the door being broken up by the joint piece there, but a very minor complaint. ^_^

    That is so garishly awesome that I must have it! I'm digging the Elite Guard emblem on the shoulder.

    Good job TCC.

    Ew yeah... ding. :(  Battle Damage? Maybe? Eh? It looks like just that one join piece didn't get a paint app. Is this a sample from the production run or a prototype'ish deco sample?

    Still a crappy redeco of a crappy mold...and I notice it still has the Autobot symbols on the doors broken up by the transformation joint. I'd rather not join the Club and skip this, but apparently I'm going to have to renew so I'm a member when the actual good figure (P/CP) comes up for pre-order.

    And with that as a segue, when is P/CP going to be up for pre-order? "Soon" is getting longer and longer every day, especially when pre-orders were supposedly going to be up in December or January.

    The unpainted hinge on the door kinda wrecks the paintjob on the side

    I hope that's just a prototype problem
