    yooo the coneheads look great so far.

    The only real issues i have with them so far is the coloring choices in some places but these are still prototypes so im definitely gonna hold my final thoughts on until they are actually finished.

    Glad I skipped the Siege versions. Stupid that they still didn’t give Prowl his shoulder guns.

    Really like what I'm seeing in both sets. May try to get two of the Prowl/Ironhide set to custom paint Prowl's legs and gun silver and see if the Siege head will fit on this body. How hard is it to get the heads off these figures? I know some have done it on the Seekers.

    Umph. Both sets look very nice. Also nice to know Ironhide can wear his van roof as a... cape. Normally, I'd be angry at the obvious partsforming a large chunk of vehicle into an 'accessory', but since that's pretty much a standard feature of Ironhide toys since the start, I can't get too upset about it.

    2 weeks for the Frenchmen and 3 months for the other set. I have a feeling the latter set in particular will see an earlier Asian release.

    Wow, I was trying to skip the Ironhide Prowl two pack....I cant resist now, Prowl looks absolutely fantastic. Ironhide....well I think the mold is fun.

    Y’know call me crazy or stupid, looking at this I have some gut feeling that we would be able to transform ironhide without removing his roof, kinda like ER Arcee. And hooo boy I can already see a 3P upgrade to fix this issue

    But then again the back of Siege ironhide was the bottom of the vehicle but one can dream can’t they?

    The roof looks a little too big hanging off the back of Ironhide. Otherwise, these are some of the most straightforward g1 styled versions of these guys in a main line so far. Nothing fancy, but if you want Earth modes of g1 Ironhide and Prowl, here you go.
    The coneheads are nice as well.

    You like seeing their face staring down at you from the nose of the plane? That's how classics did it.

    Both looking pretty good.

    I can’t wait to get the Coneheads... they look nice, and with each one I feel like I’m reliving the fun/frustration of accumulating the old Classics Seekers.

    I wish they’d given Ironhide new feet and hip pieces that were a bit more simplified... the Siege greeble doesn’t quite fit with the cleaner Earthrise pieces. But I’m also glad they used the fun Siege Ironhide skeleton, so it’s all good.

    Man, uncharacteristically for Takara, they took those pix at like the absolutely most unflattering angles. Still look great overall... ramjets white hands are kinda weird, but nice to see the gunmetal faces on both of them! (Wish they had their own weapons still...)

    takara posts grey prototypes in their magazine and social media as promotional shots. How is this uncharacteristic

    Guys I just realised something

    Earthrise ARRRHNHAAIDE Parts-forms with that roof of his right?


    So did his G1 toy, which transformed into one of those battle-station things no one cares about



    Could this be....?

    I COMPLETELY FORGIVE THIS FIGURE
