Jesus Christ that "alt mode".
It would have been cool if he transforms in to the bar.
... It\'s backwards
Unfortunate, one of the first few new Titans we've ever gotten, and a pretty awesome-looking one at that, and this is probably the only figure rapresentation of it there's ever gonna be.
This toy really is the epicure of all that's right with Transformers. The paint is richly and accurately applied, the sculpted details seem laser-precise, while the poseability surpasses that of a 3P MP figure. The transformation seems intuitive, resulting in one of the most beautiful alt-modes since the Rock Lords.
It's obvious that Hasbro truly cares more for the kids, than they do for us collectors...
Oh, I hope we get an Alphastrike/Strika retool from this.
Is it just me or... Is Iaconus a pretool/retool of Shockwave? His transformation is almost identical to how cyberverse Shockwave transforms, the gun would mount where the shield does, the chest is in the right place for it.
I don't see any of Shockwave in him to me. But one thing i do see is in the show he was black. Why is the toy green?
great! another shockwave retool
I legitimately can’t understand wtf I’m looking at for the alt-mode.....
Even one of the producers for Cyberverse doesn’t know what it’s supposed to be.
You're looking at Shockwave's altmode redressed with... city parts?
To be fair, it's not like Metroplex has an alt mode that looks like anything but a robot lying down, either...
Hot Take: I don't think his alt mode is any worse than any of the other "Character who didn't transform in the film/show and had no obvious kibble" toys we've had in the past. It's not really on a different level to the likes of DOTM Laserbeak and ROTF Fallen or Ravage.
The promotional render that's made its way out there indicates he's supposed to be a dark green with some black, and that seems to be what the toy's based on (aside from the head)
What on Cybertron does he transform into? I thought he was supposed to be a city or something but it looks like his alt mode is a yoga pose.
