    We haven't been tricked in any way shape or form. Hasbro ALWAYS puts out super photoshoped pictures of their products before the realistic looking ones of how the product will actually look. In this specific case, I personally think there isn't a huge different compared to some of the past one's. If anything the photoshop-less pictures make him look better than the photoshoped ones. As for his weapons, it might just be me, but you can sort of see how they'll fold out and how his stomach gun has a panel in front of it that'll slide out of the way somehow.

    it doesn't even look like the same figure. maybe it's just me but the new pic looks taller and lankier - hell, even the jeep mode seems elongated (longer hood). maybe it's just my ignorance, or maybe it's just the lighting, or most likely just the angle of the shot, but i think the first pic looks 10x better.

    See, if you'd said 'Gentlmen...We've been had!' then this thread would be worthwhile.

    I don't like the gaps in the alt mode. But I'll still pick it up regardless. Really looking forward to it. Love the G1 style megatron cannon

    I'm actually quite happy, as it means Swindle's not stuck with a gatling gun sticking out of his gut 24/7.

    Sheesh, all the cries of disappointment whenever a "real" photo comes out after the enhanced painted prototype photo of ANY toy. Apparently fans hate plastic and love paint - paint that wears off, paint that is misapplied by the factory, paint that smears or turns into a sticky mess when touched. Gotta love that paint. ;) 

    I think Hasbro needs to track down Remy Rodis and have him do all their promo photos. He has a talent for making even crapful toys look their best.

    That's a bargain in Australian dollars, mate. 100 bucks for 4 figures costing about 25 bucks each? Fuckin' bargain.

    More importantly, check out their pic of Universe Cheetor. The shoulders CAN be put where one would expect them to be! Hooray for that.

    That's true. But it's just cheaper to buy TFs online.
    Goddamn...why do we have to pay so much?!!?
    (rhetorical question...)
