    I managed to find more product pictures here (a little less feminine in these pictures so I don't think Cordon will be a girl after all):

    B07D1DYBVK.09.MAIN._SCRMZZZZZZ_AC14_.jpg B07D1DYBVK.09.PT01._SCRMZZZZZZ_AC14_.jpg B07D1DYBVK.09.PT02._SCRMZZZZZZ_AC14_.jpg B07D1DYBVK.09.PT03._SCRMZZZZZZ_AC14_.jpg B07D1DYBVK.09.PT04._SCRMZZZZZZ_AC14_.jpg B07D1DYBVK.09.PT05._SCRMZZZZZZ_AC14_.jpg B07D1DYBVK.09.PT06._SCRMZZZZZZ_AC14_.jpg B07D1DYBVK.09.PT07._SCRMZZZZZZ_AC14_.jpg

    Nice!

    And one more from the same link:

    Guess it only comes with the one facial expression.

    In these pictures you can see a slight hole through the light bar, so it seems that @Ikkstakk called it and the light bar will indeed rotate between modes.

    Oops, missed that one. Bigger version (if you click on the thumbnails at the top of the page it loads larger versions):

    CR-03 is a homage to Car Robot no.3:

    Thanks as usual to @Maz for the Diaclone pic :thumb 


    There's a slight change between the white on the shoulders here and in the prototype we saw, the white paint is a thinner strip in these stock photos.

    It also looks as though his limbs, head and shins are dark grey rather than black in these pictures, meaning that they will fit onto Sunstreaker more more nicely.

    I'm guessing there is no way for his gun to be used as a hand cannon, though, given that they would have surely shown that in these official product shots if it could.

    Alt mode looks good, seeing those pictures he should be a Decepticon that sucks energon out of autobots. Even though Ive pulled my diaclones out in anticipation for him, unfortunately overall this does do too much for me. He'll probably be cool to fool around with once in hand, but excited is not a word I can use. Whatever repaint excitement I had, I used it up on mp-40

    Beautiful in both modes! Definitely a buy for me. But Cordon screams Decepticon in bot mode. Barricade needs a partner in crime against those goody-goody Autobots, Prowl and Clampdown.

    Something about this figure looks really \"off\" to me in bot mode. I can\'t quite put my finger on it. Maybe the awful face sculpt?

    The face sculpt is dead on with the G1 toy. It may be that the eyes are proportionately too big and high up on the (overly long and gaunt) face compared to a human, but it's this creepy factor that appeals to me with this figure (and makes him look evil too).

    Cordon looks super awesome, he'll make a great police bot buddy for Prowl.

    Marvelous!
    It was worth the waiting almost a year to see it, haha.
    Looks great, man! Now we just need a real one! :D

    Does anyone get the feeling that his gun is supposed to be plugging somewhere from the stock? Do I get the feeling it might plug on his hands as a launcher of sort?

    Anyway, he is everything Sunstreaker was not for me, hope they pay attention to the paint this time around. Gonna buy one of these.

    I know this toy-head was originally meant for Sideswipe anyway, when Bud was writing the bios, but damn it really evokes this line from Sunstreaker's bio:

    "the most dangerous, most ruthless of the group; a calm, competent war machine"

    Hell, Starscream was dubbed as a girl in the French version of the 1986 movie. They can all be girls if you like.
