    Wasn't MMC's Razorclaw just a head or so smaller than MP Grimlock? If the pic's accurate, then TFC is about the same size as MP Grimmy .... and I kinda doubt that's the case.

    Man the proportions really do look wanky on the MMC one.

    Although I'll be waiting till we see both of these side by side in combined mode before deciding, IMO, TFC has the most solid Razorclaw of the bunch.

    Honestly... light-up feet is a pretty lame gimmick... and I would prefer a solid gun and sword over combining weapons... those always come out like crap, either in individual or combined form.

    Yeah... that's really an issue for me. I love all of MMC's limb bot-modes, but their Razorclaw reminds me a bit of TFC's Silverbolt... lot's of sacrifices. TFC really nailed the proportions of all 3 modes, though I'm not too keen on the lion head, or the bot head... love the gestalt head though.

    TFC's combiners are a bit big for my tastes... and this one likely even more so... but I'd given up on trying to make my collection scale together ages ago.

    Don't play with my emotions now. Let that be true then.

    Well, unconvinced as I am about the representation of size here, I will say I like the beefy proportions of TFC's the best. All those superhero comics influencing me, I guess. Although I'm not crazy about his gun-wings.

    Actually its the apparent massive size of TFC's that is putting me off even more, firstly there engineering levels are no where near as good as some other companys so I fear for their predaking being able to supporting his own weight well. Secondly I'm more a classics collector than a masterpeace one and for me a razorclaw that is double the high of Prime or megatron does not sit well with me

    I do like MMC's alt mode's larger back. It gives the impression of having a mane all the way to it's back.

    Cutting off the larger spiky mane would have given a better effect. It would also translate better in robot mode. I bet that would also take away your eyes a bit from the rat feet. I guess Rob Leifeld prefers a more pronounced combiner chest. I don't agree with him.

    Premature poll is premature.

    No-one in the world has their hands on any of the Razorclaws except the designers. It's like judging Blitzwing as an awesome TF based on photoshopped Hasbro photos.

    But Hasbro photoshops colours. Don't tell me there's actual colours in those pics? My cones and rods must more fucked up than I thought.

    It's a poll about the reveals, that's it... not final products... based solely off of looks alone. So no, not premature at all.

    Yeah... it's a bit scary. I don't have Herc myself, but a lot of people are saying how their connectors are getting loose after time goes by. I'm hoping they've learned from their mistakes somehow, seeing as how this is their, what, 5th attempt (including those StarQ piles of junk) at a combiner?
