    Can't wait, this one is near and dear to me, not because it's my favorite character but simply for paying for it twice and losing money both times to sellers out of business.

    Call me crazy but I actually dig the look of the chest. My appreciation of Trailbreaker comes more from the toy than the cartoon, and that "underbite" chest gap is what I always felt was implied by his toy. It's just a design characteristic that I associate with him.
    I have speedbump but I may very well replace him with outrider. This guy nails the aesthetic so much better and actually looks like the character. I'm just a bit worried because my main complaints with speedbump are about his finicky transformation that tends to scratch his silver paint. Based on FT's last few releases, I don't think outrider's transformation will be any better. It'll just result in a visually superior bot.

    yeah - I have no issue with the chest / bonnet either (hood for you American folk). I'm an MMC Terraegis guy myself and he'll get the swap for this. I put some polish in the - already fairly firm feet / ankles - so I don't really have a problem with him at all. I thought his (MMC) proportions were better than the Xtb version and so that's why I went with him. I agree with you entirely though when you say this will "result in a visually superior bot".

    I think it's because the eyes are not square. In the cartoon it was more of a visor that covered both eyes, rather than two eye sockets.

    Looks like pre-orders just went up at The Chosen Prime, I dont believe it was listed previously with the new images.

    It's been there since at least the day the new images were released, because that's when I looked for it and placed a pre-order. They had both the old and the new images there at that time. The estimated release date is still listed as "19-Dec", which makes me suspect that this is a very old listing.

    Fanstoys FANSTORM could be coming after that line. :D  Don’t get me wrong, opinions are allowed to say. I just mean, that Fanstoys seem to have a lot of fans. And some are fanatic fans. :)

    Differing opinions are always allowed. Of course, there is also a fine line between "this is my opinion" and "I'm trolling". Don't be that person. :)

    I think it's still a connected visor, but the head crest obscures in a lot of the newest pictures
