    I might actually have to go to buy the figure. Hope this comes with a battle mask option

    I really Hope its the Powermaster Armor with the full trailer and not just the regular Wingblade armor. Judging by the arms its just the normal Wingblade armor tho.

    Okay, so DNA burned me on Prowl, but just by its inherent design, this kit doesn't seem to get in the way of the base toy. The extended truck mode also does a lot to cover up the base toy's primary weakness.

    If it's less than a leader, which is what a reissue with armour kit would have to fall under, they may get me back despite the disappointing Prowl kit.

    Holy shit. This is by far one of DNA's biggest W's.
    I hope they include a battle mask head as a bonus

    Ooof. Like two weeks ago ZX Studio had put out pics of their own kit. There was already bad blood between DNA and ZX before, this might get ugly.

    When DNA posted that April fool tease pic, I heard they were already making their prototype of this kit. They don't reveal their kit early anymore because 3d print maker could copy their design and release their kits a lot earlier than DNA.

    Wow, this is impressive! Looks like they put a lot of effort into this. Nice!

    I wish they’d make a kit like this for the original voyager as well, but that’s a pipe dream.

    Looks very cool. I'm hoping the hammer is 5mm compatible so it can be held by others or just the base figure, too.
    Lack of battle mask aside, I'm really digging it, and I'm glad it can make a full rear section for Prime.

    This looks amazing

    Only thing I wish was different is that I wish the guns of the forearms were a more prominent part of the gauntlet, bigger and silver

    And also maybe a waist armour piece similar to the OG Bumper piece, could have been used as the rear bumper of the firetruck in storage

    EDIT: Oh and the mask + Visor as well

    I feel like they could make it work similarly to the T30 Jetfire battle mask and have it slip onto the existing Headsculpt

    YES! And it actually completes the fire truck vehicle mode!

    I NEED this!
