    Nice to see the head just slides in behind the glass. Hopefully the figure isn't altered.

    I really hope the original face stickers are still included, I'd hate to have to use those cheesy, lame-ass heads.

    Ok that looks cool. I wonder if they will sow pictures of the new Classic-Universe collection they might be releasing soon?

    Unless TakaraTomy changes their routine, their website won't show these figures until March (their release date). We're more likely to see them through some solicitation scan.

    1. He just pushed Megatron off a cliff.

    2. Optimus Prime just NOW saved his ass from becoing made into aluminum foil by Sixshot.

    3. He realized that it's better to have a cardboard head than a Tweety Bird beak.

    4. Ask Kickback. Ratchet is forever ruined for him and it's a hi-larryous story.

    Tell me 'NPS' does not mean what I think it means. In the past twenty-four hours I've been reminded of NPS and the "Erector" incident. Every family has skeletons in the closet. TFW is the only one I'm aware of that keeps dragging the skeletons out, kicking and screaming, and setting them up in the front lawn with a big sign hanging from their necks that says, "see, looky how screwed up we is!"

    'Blaster' Black for Soundwave? Interesting scheme, but I can't tell from those pictures if the door is a different color or it's just got more light reflecting from it than the rest of the figure.

    As for Ironhide and Ratchet? Cardboard heads don't really fix the inherent problem with that mold. Though it is cool for those that like them that they can at least pick them up again in what appears to be an un-altered form.

    That sure looks blue to me. I'm a little confused. Was there a all black version released already or is this the one. I don't remember ever seeing a blue chest.

    Awe yeah, TT did reference NPS. My bad.

    See NF, you want to keep one or two freaks in mind at all times. Makes the rest of us look sane by comparison. You never go out with the guys and bring the Fat Friend?

    Looking at these cardboard heads, it's totally doable to fold it in so it doesn't need to detach in van mode. I like that.

    The thing is, nobody would have noticed anything if you didn't just say that!

    Now everybody who doesn't already is going to want to know what NPS is.

    But they don't REALLY want to "know" so much as they THINK they want to know. And then, once they do, they can be horrified like the rest of us.

    Okay, I'm sold on Soundblaster. While a red chest door would have been the bee's knees, purple is almost as good. And check out his little gold anklets. Blingy!

    I didn't see any pics of the Japanese Nightwatch Prime (might have been looking in the wrong place).... anyone know if it's the UK style with the bronze and black highlights, or the US style with the "Allspark blue" highlights? If it's the former, it might be worth it to import that... it's much nicer-looking IMO.

    (okay, I admit, I'm a little curious what NPS stands for... I think it must've been before my time on this board....)

    Per this thread, the TakaraTomy version is the UK Version and NOT the AllSpark Power version.

    It's somebody that drew something awful, and I'm going to leave it at that.

    Oh, you must have forgotten the dozens of fan-fics involved. *SHUDDER*

    Thankfully, I don't read or care about fan-fics.

    Sadly, if you can imagine, it made the drawings even worse.

    Much worse.

    Well, I've been able to deduce that NPS means NeoPrimeStar, but it seems these horrible fanfics and images have been wiped from most of the internet. That's probably a good thing.
