    I'm willing to bet his roof didn't add that much to his robot form, anyway.

    He will just lose some of his ungodly back pack kibble, at least my Custom HA DOTM Sideswipe did............WIP thread soon!


    Interesting! I didn't see a botmode pic, is it in that "MechTech "thread?

    Since we know the movie TFs have full interiors, (and not just robot parts covered by roofs and windows) I agree with this. Chances are he'll have a little less back kibble and that's it.

    Found the pic. Good eye! :thumbs2: 

    Although the same basic chest shape is retained, so I think my custom will still fly, so to speak.

    fair enough. How do you think they'll explain it away in the movie..... or will they just sort've skip it completely.
    p.s. I'm not nit picking at all i enjoy the movies and don't really mind that things weren't explained fully.
    p.p.s. do you have a link for the toy?

    Um I am pretty sure they showed the new deluxe in robot mode why do you guys care what the new legends looks like in bot mode when deluxe is closer.

    His picture should be on this page.
    They probably won't give any more explanation than a handwave, it's just one of those things the 'Bots do over a few years.

    Did they really show the deluxe in robot mode yet? I'd love to see it.

    Wow, the mold and design looks pretty good but the dull gray plastic just ruins it. I better pick up Sidearm Sideswipe while I can.

    Couldn't agree more about the bland non painted gray plastic. Although it looks like they did a bang up job reducing panel lines.:thumbs2:

    Yeah, look at those pics again. There is one that's a group shot with 4 Autobot deluxes under a banner that says "weapons system"

    Ahhhhh ok thanks hank i dunno how i missed that lol.

    I think he looks pretty good, the back part of his head does look a little funky though.

    I do however wish they would have went with a different tone of grey.

    The transformation looks really interesting, if you look closely the chest is actually made of the headlights and not the taillights.
