    I found some new pics of these guys on Facebook. The pics aren't that great, but I think that the figures look pretty decent. I need some better pics to decide if I'll get them or not, though.

    The flash photography on the white of Ultra Mammoth make it look kind of ugly. I'm still exciting for it, since I imagine those colors will look a lot better in person.

    The closeup of Slipstream's head in the last photo looks a LOT better in my opinion than the TFCC provided photo from a couple weeks ago.

    Good find!

    Figures look nice despite the horrible picture quality.

    Does Slipstram have an aura around her that makes any photograph instantly look like ass? Christ, SOMEONE provide a decent picture already, haha.

    LOL!! Truth, though I will say I still dig the fact they are using a mold that can portray the feminine aspect more convinvingly than a classic seeker could.

    Mammoth, oh lord I cannot wait for him!

    Maybe TFCC believes the whole "crappy photography makes reactionary fans condemn an unreleased toy until the good pictures come along" thing is tradition.

    I liked the first pics of Slipscream that had more highlight colors on the robot chest & body. Slipscream is the only toy from this set that I am mildly interested in buying. the rest are more miss than hit.

    At first I thought the Ultra Mammoth was a great idea. After the wow factor wore off,It every newer pics,I dis-liked to toy colors more & more. I think BW Neo Big Convoy colors look best on this mold. The Ultra Mamoth colors are terrible because they look KO. They are also not in true real mammoth animal colors.

    Is there a way to purchase just the mammoth and for a decent price? I can't see spending like $150 for just the mammoth figure.

    first edition starscream is already too femenine for the character so slipstream works great
    i dont care what people say, she looks amazing, and femenine enough
    ultra mamoth looks really good but i want more a g1 colored big convoy instead of an ultra magnus
