    The Glitch head looks great! Is that the exclusive?

    Might be since it hasn't been shown anywhere before.

    Edit: If it's in the printed instructions then it's probably not a PSX exclusive.

    Ha! He comes with a Glitch head? That's fun, although Tarn would never have had that face in this body, right?

    And is the energy sword the secret bonus accessory, or is that still yet to be revealed?

    Thanks for the pics! Face sculpt is indeed awesome!

    ...mostly, but something about calidus' cheeks don't quite work for me, like they need to be more gaunt, recessed from his helmet sideplates...funny thing, though, his shadow ghost face looks fantastic to my eyes, and i don't even like the shattered glass concept...
    ...i'll gladly take salvia prominon off your hands for a reasonable price!..

    Ah, must have missed that. Well, we know from Aza's post a few pages back that the Glitch head isn't the exclusive either:

    I guess the suspense continues!

    I think @LazyAza already said every Tyrantron comes with the Kultur head.

    Eh, maybe. We first see glitch in #11 as a full Empurata victim. When we next see him in during "Elegant Chaos" he's replaced his claws with hands and modified his head to have the same circular "ears" that Roller has (tying in to the whole "Tarn is Roller" misdirection"), but stil with the emputara-style face. After that we only ever see him in his "Tarn" body with the mask on, until his final panel. It's certainly possible that in some of the earlier-in-the-chronology appearences of Tarn (such as during Skids's flashback in #48) he might still have had the "Glitch" head and we just can't see it.

    does the mask still fit over the glitch face? i'd rather have glitch's face under there than tarns reformatted face.

    GAH the WAITING

    Seriously, to make it even worse I have a good 140$ of toys in my stack right now, waiting for this guy to push it over the edge into free shipping.

    I'm so excited for this figure. Been wanting to add Megs to my Lost Light collection. With all these product shots I hope that means it'll be out soon. So it comes with a more accurate head for Glitch/Tarn/Kultur. Is that the same mask for Kultur or does Tyrantron come with a new mask I wonder? On the first page there's a gif that appears to let you put Tarn's mask on Megs' torso.
    I know the feeling. I've got about the same amount and I'm just waiting on Tyrantron or PE Core Magnus so I can ship and finally get my MakeToys Swerve.

    ...i keep distracting myself with other household projects to sustain my patience, but this imminent tease just keeps gnawing at me daily...

    I believe it will come with a new mask for Kultur that allows the magnet feature

    Glitch head is included with all copies, new mask is specifically made for it. PSX exclusives are different things.

    Believe me I know what the exclusives are. It's nothing to stress about changing an order over or whatever but its a bonus nonetheless.

    You heard the man. All the PSX exclusives are every fusion cannon Megatron has sported in the comic book medium. All of them! More than 10 different fusion cannons on top of what he already comes with! Cancel you preorders, hide ya children, and get over to PSX something pronto! This is not a joke, this i not a drill this is not an imaginary story! You needs to get to preordering at PSX.

    Oh, NOTHING to stress about. So people can start saying thanks to MMC for including an extra head and mask for Tarn across the board? Gotcha.

    In all seriousness thank you for trying to avoid a panic and possible resentment towards MMC that people may have potentially felt because the exclusives are unknown. That's good representation for the company you work for towards the community, and you should know it, and know that it is appreciated by many of us.
