    This forum is filled with people who think their opinion is in the majority, and mock those who think otherwise.

    The Problem is, Dream Star themselve are unsure which Head on Slingshot is better.
    They said this in the comments.

    There is a High Chance that
    Slingshot will come with both Heads.

    There is also a High Chance that all
    the 4 remaining Figures get a new Modernized Head.

    Silverbolts Head (Page 1) as an example looks very G1 ish. I think they will change the Head also.

    Just tried to help. They could get both
    Sides into the Boat, Modernized Collectors and G1 Fans.

    But yes I am happy with the new Slingshot Sculpt, and I think the remaining 4 will get the same makeover.

    Considering they are re-doing all the heads to be less G1, it’s ironically delaying them because of not having G1 heads. LOL.

    Y'all remember that issue of the Marvel Transformers comic where the last decepticon tricks the autobots into starting another civil war? That kinda reminds me of how we always devolve into the same insults thrown around whenever any figure that is even moderately well known comes out. Anyway, this guy looks sick, can't wait to have him in my collection, he should fit in pretty well with my movie bots, or like dx9 carry maybe.

    Well said, lol

    I don't care what head sculpt it has, as long as it isn't some bugeyed Bayverse thing, lol

    My only hesitation is I'd really prefer G1 colors. The age of repaints I can see them re-releasing them later in those colors.

    Just buy it now. I recommend Duplicolor Vinyl & Fabric paint or Krylon Fusion :lol 

    But seriously, I already have a Superion in G1 colors, so the realistically painted jets will be a nice contrast and a different take. For those that don't, I get wanting to wait and see.

    This is legitimately super cool looking. I just don't know what to do with this. I generally already have a plan on how I will display all my figures and this doesn't fit with anything... I already have Zeta's Metallic version and wanted to display him with some version of MP Devastator so I can recreate that iconic Devastator vs Superion comic panel. This one... doesn't really fit with anything else. Maybe the Planet X WfC Dinobots or something like that. Is there an MP Bayverse Devastator? Maybe I can do a dual display with G1 and Bayverse Devy vs this Superion.

    Also double problematic is how amazing the robot and alt modes are. I've never felt the need to display the Zeta version in anything beyond the combined mode. These would look amazing in any of the modes.... oof... my wallet will kill me though...

    This is the panel I'm referring to.

    I mean, if you have any of the movie decepticons, these could look pretty great during it out with them in their robot modes. Or you could have it displayed as Superion for a movie verse centerpiece.

    Fully agree!
    I've always thought that the perfect fits would be "monstrous-shaped" Bay's Decepticons vs "nice-humanoid-shaped" Knight's Autobots.
