    I can attach a basic one but I’ll try and get better shoots when I have a chance. That was the first thing I did when I got home was get classics off the shelf to compare!

    around 8 or 9pm on McHenry. They had stock workers all around the place while I was there so they must have just put them out.

    I also included the box art and bar code in this post.

    You mean the usual suspects havent reviewed stolen toys and may actually get legit copies?

    I had time to do a few quick comparison shots actually. Probably not the best but gives you a good idea. The pose-ability, sculpting and engineering are on a different level. Very similar transformation with a few new touches added in.

    took an extra pic with their weapons switched.

    I wonder if this is a West Coast thing. I'm on the East Coast...

    Does Earthrise Starscream have a wrist swivel?

    No wrist swivel sadly. It moves up and down for transformations.

    Grapple looks great. I’ll try and get my friend to upload pics if he has a chance.

    Figures. Just my luck. Toy sightings almost never happen in the darn city and the one day I call in sick to work, they happen.

    Its suddenly occurred to me that I don't have any of the Elite in f-15 form. Two are tetrajets and one doesn't transform. Perhaps if I like him, I'll grab him?

    Thanks for the great pics. @ChotoLatte

    I can understand. I mean, if he lacks some of the articulation of Siege I can see that as a step back - as MUUUUUUUCH as I love his F-15 alt mode
    Could be worse (*cough*TEXAS*cough*)

    Siege barely ended for the UK and similar 3rd world countries (at least in the eyes of Hasbro distribution ;)  ) and the US is getting ER ahead of schedule.

    I'm just trying to wrap it up. Altho I don't like figures smaller than Deluxe, I'm not beholden to scale. So even if they released all 6 as voyagers, I'm not interested in re-dropping $180 on re-purchasing them.

    I do believe the Seekers should be taller than the car bots, but that's just me. I'll probably get Starscream because it's, well, Starscream. Looking forward to the Coneheads, but undecided on the other 2, unless I can sell them off. But I feel you on turning around to buy the same characters who will in the alt mode we really wanted.
