    Pincers look stupid.

    Needs more bot-mode.

    New picture, but definitely not the first time we've seen this figure at this stage of production. The alt-mode is nice, but the bot-mode hasn't wowed me yet. I'll wait to see what it looks like finished, but I doubt I'll get it, let alone multiples like others are planning.

    Also, anybody else think of lobster pincers when they see this guy?

    That's definitely the Legends class figure. The pin sizes are just right for it.

    The grey thing on the hood is the same color as the pincers. Could that be a button to activate a spring-loaded release?

    The second link looks like it might be a legend figure...though maybe not...

    I really hope those pincers fold away somehow.

    I think that might be the Legends one.

    You'd think they'd show some robot mode pics...
    I sure wouldn't drop $981 on a toy after only seeing alt mode pics.
    Heck, I wouldn't drop $981 on a toy, period, but even less so without bot pics.

    I think that's probably the idea though. No robot pics so some sucker will pay $981 for a early peek.

    That's the Legends-size kinda Mirage-looking one we saw earlier?

    Forget Crankcase!

    I'm going to take I chance and guess that the Decepticon Suburbans' name will be either
    Chop Shop or Shrapnel
    !

    If he is
    Chop Shop
    , the pincers are an ode to his G1 stag beetle mode!

    If he is
    Shrapnel
    , pincers will that large can only double as his famous twin, electrical antennae!
