    I think the only thing weird is his feet attachment. I think he would have been fine without it.

    He probably needs the extra heel attachments to stand solidly. The "new" platform shoes are actually his original heels. So when you fold those down, he's going to need some new heel support to stop himself from falling backwards, especially with the added wings back there.

    Or I suppose you could just not transform his feet at all and leave the clip-on heels off.

    Might make him look a little stumpy, though, when you consider the extended forearms.

    There's a fix for that! The holes are too small for the little nubs, and it makes the support too splayed out to support the cannon. If you sand the holes out a bit, the nubs'll fit more snugly, and more importantly the cannon will rest on the clip and stay in place.

    Looks like there is a sword handle on the back of the shoulder cannon, it's got the groove and the right shape to be a sword sheathed in the launcher, plus its an appropriate weapon for the character

    Cannot wait for this guy

    I hope you are right. A melee weapon is the only thing missing.

    I will love it if it was made out of translucent orange and red plastic so that you could only see "Burning Justice"

    Mhm was thinking that too, seems to have the usual MT hand slot grooves in the grip. Hope its got a translucent blade like Rioters which also hid inside his canon.

    To Powermaster Prime/Ginrai. Thunder Manus' shoulder recall Striker Manus more so than PMOP/Ginrai's distinct design

    [​IMG]

    He looks almost exactly like PMOP (Even more so than the recent HasTak one) outside his shoulders, so if he's supposed to be a heavy reimagining they're not doing a good job

    do we know 100% for sure it cant transform or at least parts from like the original? I see a lot of clips and hinges that don't really see to serve any use in combined or trailer mode. I'm not too regardless unless they make a black version... then it's as good as mine.

    Hmmmm. I bet dollars to doughnuts you can pull off the god mode without the cab in the chest. It would be nice to be able to display it separately when he's all godded up.

    Holy mother forking shirtballs! Well, that's gorgeous. I was thinking about skipping the Manus version of the mold, but that's just sexy. Only way I'm passing on this, now, is if they announce Fire Guts colors before this comes out (I don't think they will, but hope springs eternal). Looking forward to some original Decepticons (non-OP repaint variety) from CD after this.

    I bet that it could be pulled off considering that the inner cab isn't really visible from the front once the additional armor is added.

    Man this looks good. Can Maketoys just release the Seekers, Soundwave, and a few Autobot cars to go with these guys?

    I would love to see MT take a shot at Cross Dimensions versions of the Sideswipe and Sunstreaker. I've been waiting for good CHUG versions too long. The Has/Tak versions didn't work to me.
