Why not give the option for both? Like with Grapple and Inferno.
Hah, all of this was sussed out a long time ago by fine folks in many threads across these boards, as well as myself and @Dean ML in PMs over the last two years that we've been anticipating OP-3. Staring at cartoon stills and comparing them to action figures has sharpened my eyes somewhat when it comes to attention to certain details, but that's nothing to do with my jobs (teacher and musician).
I agree with Dean, and predict chrome everywhere. The + version can have the chrome pelvis and thighs (and maybe even chrome instead of grey on the obliques). I don't mind either way. Swappable parts would be good, but I'm not sure if they warrant the extra parts count of making them detachable when they may as well use that budget to just make them chrome.
85-90% sure on chrome, 99.99% sure on multiple helmets
Even Dinoot's sword is chromed and they could have skipped the chrime for Cordon but it's there. I'm not the biggest fan in the world for chrome detailing but if done right to compliment a figure, so be it.
I'm liking the idea of parts swapping. If the chrome pieces can be easily detached, I can see this option for a flagship character.
I'm totally fine with tasteful chrome. That's a nice photoshop job, Seth. I cannot wait for this. Megatron, Sunstreaker, and the other recent MPs have been some of my favorites, so this is going to be right up my alley.
So gotta ask. How many are in the category of blue translucent windows? And how many believe clear? I feel blue is the way to go
A less saturated blue.
Here'es what i think, the windows will be translucent in truck mode and sightly blue in bot mode, as the section changes a bit.
Removable chest plate with both options.
The blue should match the windows of the + versions. So far, we have +Sideswipe, Sunstreaker and +Prowl. On the other hand, we have Hot Rod with a lighter blue and Exhaust with a deeper blue. For me, an acceptable blue would be the carbots and possibly Hot Rod. But I don’t wan to see Prime’s windows going toward Exhaust’s blue.
I hope by the time we get around to reprolabels I hope we get a transparent sticker with a Thrust Printed on it so I can pull this off in altmode...well actually the surprised face a few more frames into this scene..anyhow see below.
I want a translucent blue glazed with a high gloss finish for very reflective lighting.
Lol. Alas poor thrust
Thrust was the lucky one. The way Prime was shooting down Decepticons, there should have been a lot more that were damaged.
Actually, Blitzwing escaped Prime’s assault and was set to be be an Autobot.
Do we think the voice box on his back is detachable?
I don’t. It seems to be pretty permanently hinged and integrated as part of the figure.
Unfortunately no I don't think it's detachable. It's one of the main things putting me off pre-ordering this figure.
I hope it's swappable for a crudely-sculpted white AKOM version.
Blitzwing was set to be an Autobot?
I think @Agent 539 is referring to Five Faces of Darkness (ep 5?) where he tried to assist the Autobots in foiling the Quintessons’ plans, and had a neat moment with Rodimus.
At least I think that’s how/when it went down - it’s been a while since I last watched haha.
Separate names with a comma.
