    The head looks a little big. But I fucking love it.

    Eh. I'm actually kind of disappointed. He just looks so plain and I don't like the proportions much. Will wait for reviews to decide if I buy this.

    Thanks for the info. Glad I passed. Didn't quite expect this from FP, but hopefully there are collectors that will appreciate it.

    I think the photo is making it look a little more plain than it is. Though the shoulders look to lack some articulation.

    The G1 Chromedome just breathed a sigh of relief. Not feeling this at all. That's twice in a row now that FP has revealed silhouettes at the last minute (after the "carrier" mode) with the result being less than impressive. Hopefully this is not going to be their modus operandi going forward. FP should mean Fans Project not Fatten my Purse.

    Agree on both parts.

    I want to see how tall he is. I am fuckin' excited about this one. It's the More Than Meets The Eye fan in me :D

    Let's get some more flattering photos before the torches and pitchforks come out. FP has yet to disappoint (me anyway).

    ^Agreed.

    And I just read in the other thread, deluxe sized. And Upgradecommander is shipping theirs out on the 27th. Holy crap!

    I remember hearing at TFcon that they would be out in September, but I figured they meant 2013. Hearing these ship out in December sounds like standard 3rd party estimations. :) 

    Bring on the rest!

    Just looking at the drawings we've seen, there does appear to be some significant changes to the details in this figure. Notably, the arms are leaner and don't have the double hinge that the drawings suggest. I have hopes that better photos will make this more appealing to the masses, I think I'm still onboard depending the size over all. Given what we've seen from FP, this is something of a let down if it is the final product though.

    Still, it's going to be awkward when Joel and the BBTS crew [and I assume other sites involved in the promotion] start running around their area taking back all the toys donated to Toys for Tots once the cancellations for this figure come in.

    Ah.., hahaha. Crap. I predict a deluge of BBTS preorder cancellations in 3... 2... 1...

    I don't like what I'm seeing here, but I'm not gonna cancel. But mostly because I can't (preordered somewhere else).

    Looks really.... plain.

    Maybe I'm just spoiled on the MTMTE design.

    I hope with a little articulation it looks acceptable next to my other FP transformers. If not FP should push back the release date until it fits in the crew. :)
