    Those Alicon colors look very different than what was shown earlier (and much worse IMHO).

    Wow, the Allicon went from an instant buy to an instant pass. Even the Quint looks shittier. (also is this some kind of joke why haven't they clearly shown all fie faces head on?)

    Yeah I really hope the final colors for the Alicon turns out more like the examples we saw at toyfair. I’m not digging these colors in these Takara photos.

    I'm guessing that Allicon's colors here are not the final.

    Damn. Quintessons look better than the renders, but the Alicons look REALLY WEIRD. Hope that Alicons are in the same case as ER Optimus where they were near final color tests and not the final product.

    Hey, Takara, can you stop using prototypes for your stock photos?

    Still better than the godawful CG renders that Hasbro throws out IMO

    Yikes. Cancelling my Alicon pre-order if these are the final colors.

    Out of sheer curosity, why?

    I prefer TT's stock photos as they often seem to try and show the gimmick/ play pattern (i.e Smashdown being in Quint's cage), they seem to have more cooler poses and the fact that its not rendered mean that the pictures often look more organic, "toyetic" and not a 3D model. Again, not trying to start an argument here, I'm just trying to gain some insight.

    That's a whole lotta pastel goin' on...

    Still, I'm betting it's a prototype. If nothing else, it gives us a good look at the mold.

    The Quintesson looks even better IMO.

    Slitherfang is a must, either way, so...

    I wonder if this was the "faction set" people have been rumoring.

    Voyager Judge, Deluxe Alicon, throw in Legends Gnaw and Battlemaster Slitherfang and that's all the price points save Leader.

    Because with renders, to me at least, it's pretty much a given that it's not 100% indicative of the final product. I mean, you do see what it says below my name, right?

    When you take photos of the physical product, and you use a prototype, like Takara did with Prime last year, you end up confusing people. As shown in this very thread with people asking "is that the final product?"

    Allicon is probably a different color for the boxset vs. the retail release. This set looks really nice, though I have no need for a snake that transforms into road.

    This is objectively the greatest stock image of all time. SmartSelect_20200228-001502_Samsung Internet.jpg
