    Rumble/Frenzy's lower legs are.. are...

    Heck he has them spun around in the piledriver shot just to make it look like he is crouching... I have heard of Thunder thighs but thunder boots!? I had not noticed that before D:

    It's still a must buy for Buzzsaw

    Interesting that Soundwave has areas of storage for Frenzy/Rumble parts...

    I have a bad feeling that this will be a widespread QC issue. :(

    Seems so inconsistent. In some shots the chest paint is there, then in other shots they're not. I don't think they're the same toys between pictures... mixture of retail and test shots, methinks.

    Does this mean that the cassettes are coming out alot sooner than expected? They're slated for a March release.

    Strange we are getting in hand pics as this isn't due until late march. Ravage/Rumble is late Feb and I haven't seen any pics like these.

    Rumble/Frenzy transformation looks an exact copy of G1. Not much to work with though.

    I like the Cassetticon weapon storage feature on Soundwave.

    If you compare the paintjob between every photo, you'll notice it goes from looking non existant, to half there, to all there... I think we're merely dealing with a lighting issue here folks. Let's calm down.

    His legs are not spun around. He is crouching.

    No it's a KO. The clear Cassette from the sG set is a clear yellow and opaque white Rewind / Eject redeco. Totally different.

    Hmm You are right!, those knee joints gave the impression he was hinging from back in the crouching pose.. but still those lower legs look very thick.

    With the perfection Buzzsaw is showing, I'm surprised they gave frenzy thunder boots.

    I don't mind the paint job, aside from the chest scuffing that may or may not be a lighting issue. I am still excited for these guys. However, I've never seen that Ramhorn before, is that a potential MP Ramhorn? And if so, should we be expecting Blaster any day now??

    these two pics mare obvious a horribly irregular paintjob.

    also, the paint job on all three pics looks to match up.

    maybe this guy had this set for a long time and has transformed them a bunch of times and other people have handled them..even the box looks pretty shelfworn..

    Yes that's a really neat touch. They have put some thought into this.

    Yeah you're right they look 'worn' but doesn't bode well at how long the decor will stand up if this is how they look already. Hopefully these are just testpieces.

    That Buzzsaw is gorgeous in every way though. How the hell are there pictures of this set out the already???
