    That's exactly what that means.

    The torso is split in two, from the side. Matrix and abs in the front half, head and arms fold out of the back half. It looks like the shoulders and biceps will fill in the back for truck mode, so that the smoke stacks peek out.

    Pretty much just like their Ratchet and Ironhide. They're both a bit open in the back.

    In all fairness, there does appear to be a back portion in the "LOOK AT MA AXE" pic that doesn't seem to be present in the "LIGHTING DARK HOURS" pic. The dangers of sharing prototype pics..

    If BB and Ironhide casn fit in there I will be happy. OP is shaping up to be their best release.

    Hoping Cliiffjumper and Sideswipe are in prototype stage too.

    Enough with the freakin' teases! Just show the whole figure and trailer in both modes and be done with it! I am really starting to not like this company. What we've seen looks great but I want to know that it's all going to come together and it's not going to turn out that he looks like garbage from any other angle than the (very) few that they've been gracious enough to slowly dole out.

    Considering they only showed the first hard prototype pic a week a go I think you should cut them a break rather than demanding a full reveal immediately.

    That's so fricking sweet! The detailing looks awesome. Here's hoping it sits high enough to look good linked up with GT's OP.

    Maybe. But they did the silhouette reveal how long ago? And then they showed a render of just his head last month. And then they finally showed that prototype pic you mentioned and it was cropped to just his upper torso. No, clearly they're doing these reveals as teasers for whatever reason, so no.

    Now if the shots had been accompanied with a statement to the effect of "this is literally all we've got finished but we'll show you more as soon as it's ready," that would've been fine, but that's not the impression I got from this. Silhouette reveals are widely despised (though admittedly not universally) because their whole purpose is to get you excited without actually giving you any information. Well dammit, I was already excited but I don't like teases. I'm excited to see the damn toy and they're like "you want to see it? Huh? Do ya? Well I'm not gonna show it to you but here's a little peak at the very back of his trailer to keep your interest up." Yeah? Well you've got one finger on each of my hands up but not much else. If you want to keep my interest, how's about you show the damned toy or even a render? Give me enough information to decide if I even want the damn thing. If you're waiting for some sort of timetable or something to do the full reveal then just say so and I'll be back then. I'm insulted at your giving me crumbs in the hopes that it'll keep me drooling.

    And here we are, talking about it, posting about it, bringing the thread about their product to the top of the forum list each time, more and more free advertising for them.

    They know exactly what they're doing.

    Yes, and that's exactly why it pisses me off.

    My point is complaining about it doesn't help... because it's just more free ads. It's more talk. The more you complain, the more they will do it.

    So, as tough as it sounds, if you don't like it, just shhhh. If enough people don't like it, they'll seek out other ways to generate buzz.

    Google translate isn't the greatest, but they seem to be more upfront in their weibo page. Like when they are discussing the head etc.

    It is annoying when 3Ps tease something forever and never follow though. I hate it when you see the finished product, but it still doesn't ship for months.

    Calm down man, it's just a toy. I would rather them show it when it's worth looking at rather than a rushed piece of who knows what. An advertisement is just that, to let you know it's coming. I don't know if you realize it, but you're coming across as very entitled. It's just not worth getting that worked up about. Let's keep this thread civil, and not just rants.

    Anyways this guy is looking amazing so far. Can't wait to see him in vehicle mode in all it's glory. Loving that the matrix is there. Articulation is looking great too!

    Yeah. I suppose you're right. :redface2: 
    Yup. You're absolutely right. Totally remaining calm. Just an ocean of calm right here.

    Just a toy?! JUST A TOY?!?!
