    Remember that first image of SW's toy we got to see during the convention? (below)

    [​IMG]
    Ok, why is it that it looked so nice, like without any kibble and his pose was very accurate? WHen I first saw this image of his toy I couldn't wait to get him.

    But now look at him...:inquisiti  Was that false advertisement? Is that really what we're gonna get?

    Yeah, Hasbro hires professional photographers to take nice pitures of their toys to falsely advertise Transformers. Kind of like how hamburger chains advertise their burgers.

    Same figure, just at a different angle and some weirdness in the transformation. Wait till someone who cares gets their hands out it..

    If only they had used the same silver as HA Jazz. He's SO NICE, and this Soundwave has an even better car model.

    (Must stop repeating self)

    I see that deluxe has a silver head. Looks a bit out of place....but I'm still getting him. He deserves my love.

    Obviously the in-hand version is mis-transformed to some degree. It's not like they completley remodelled the kibble between shots.

    The only dissapointment i have is if this line keeps going and taking momentum away from more important line,s like classic,s 4.0

    He might be referring to the HA version.

    So the initial release will have no paint and the repaint will have gorgeous deco, just like Deluxe Sideswipe/Darksteel.

    The in hand pics so far have been terribly mistransformed. Official stock photos always look better.
    Wait for a review before passing judgement conclusively...


    But I will say, that I didn't think it looked that great ever...
