    Man I thought DX nailed that G1 toy aesthetic pretty well but FT sure makes DX look amateur. But FT looks kinda blocky which is not normally what they tend to evoke.

    Wow. Much better than DX9's.

    I have to say I'm sorely tempted.

    I mean as an homage to G1 it's pretty great but why in 2017 will we be limited basically to what looks like 1987 posability for robot mode? A stiff blocky ninja was necessary with the budget and technology of the 80s but today we can do so much more!

    Instant winner!!!

    That's how you do a Sixshot. So when's this? 2020? Heck, for once Takara may actually do this before then :)

    YAAASSSS!! This addresses some of the issues I have with Hanzo - fake forearm wheels, lack of tank mode cockpit. Hopefully they get the right shade of teal too. LOL!

    Where do you get that idea? It looks to have as much articulation as any other TF in robot mode.

    Dangerous question. But the answer is obvious: "it's cartoon accurate."

    Hopefully the rumors of their next three figures being released in the next month or so are accurate, though I suspect it will be longer.

    Looks good, but luckily outside of my collection needs. The only problem with it is I think it means the next figure FT reveals that I actually want will be like 3 or 4 years from release... I might be finished with my collection by the time a not already revealed FT figure comes out that I'd want to buy.

    Are FT going to open another factory? If not, they seem to have laid bare their next 4 years of product!?
