    (i mean, i don't want these greebled up like Siege either. just the appropriate amount of detailing.)

    No, I don’t think anyone’s figured out how it flips over. I think they may have remoulded underneath the roof/chest, to allow room for the other lightbar underneath in both modes.

    I'm curious to understand what you mean by 'flip over around its own axis'. You think there's a pin going horizontally (from door to door) through the roof, and the lightbar spins around with that pin?

    I’d draw to if I had any skill. Just like bumblebee and Tracks’ horizontally pinned square to flip over the insignia but the pin is vertically up and down from the front to the rear of the car.

    It does look like the light bar is a separate piece in the seams along the edges. And if I strain my eyes I can make out a nub that could be a pin under the silver part of the light at.

    Probably should have put him with Clampdown on the back of the box.
    Unlike Sunstreaker looks like he's going to spend a lot of time in regular Lambo mode.

    I bought him. I'm a sucker for that police deco, it's just so sharp. And the figure is amazing.

    Great pics! I must admit I was so starved for G1 masterpieces that I wound up pre-ordering this off Amazon Japan...and that was months ago. :oops: :lol 
    (Seriously, where are the Hound/Prime pre-orders?)

    Except it was noticed the light bar is different in each mode, seeming to rule out that simple swivel.

    Actually I think I was the one who did a side-by-side, but I was doing it wrong, since no lines actually match up between the different 'roofs'. I guess we'll find out soon enough anyway.

    I’ll have mine possibly by next Tuesday. I’m sure there will be a video out before then but I’d love to be the first to clarify.

    Either way I’m extremely excited to finally get another Diaclone carbot! And what a carbot it is!

    Any back-of-box translations yet? If "cordon" ends up being less this guy's name and more a description of his (their?) function, I'm going to want to troop-build him (them)...
