    Not so sure about this. The more I look at him and Megatron the more they look a bit... janky? It isn't as bad on Megs, but something about the way the panels sit just looks awkward and weirdly puffy.

    Looks better than the shots this morning, but again, I'm torn. GCreation's arguably looks more accurate, but they're also a newer 3P and their QC with shuraking is questionable

    Still don't understand why they made him "MP" size/scale.

    There are so many Geewunners on here that hate IDW because "reasons" (reasons that somehow escape them every time when asked. I wonder what it's like to eat chicken and only chicken for the rest of your life. Sounds excite) ... So who are they aiming for with this figure?

    The "looks cool, I'll buy it" people? For their sake, I hope those people are a lot.

    I'm liking both of these. Not sure if enough to buy, but price will dictate that... especially with all the reveals today. :(

    I'm one of those latter people, if the price is right. I like this Op so far, will be interested to see how it ends up.

    Those are GCreations, not GenerationToy's. Same figure so I'd imagine the paint scheme will be similar.

    You know those are pictures of GCreation's version of this, right David? GT's hasn't been shown outside of prototype gray.

    Yeah, just realized I got the two threads/figs mixed up. So much news today! Going to try to rectify/edit best I can.

    I have TWs Orion.
    I have both color variations and other than some tabbing issues,
    I love them both !!

    This, well....
    GT ????
    It now just looks like an upscaled variation of that, with almost the exact same transformation !!!
    thats why, I LOVE IT !!!!!!!!!!

    I wish that I had a use for this. This caught my attention from across the room. A phenomenal looking figure.

    Fucking incredible! I'm all in for this and Bomber Megs. MP-scaled IDW is more than welcome on my shelves :)

    And there are plenty of Geewunners that love IDW. After years of collecting anything and everything, I trimmed back to MP style only. I can't say I want every IDW figure made, but definitely the big guns. So this is a must buy for me. Not to mention that China loves the big figures and that's a huge chunk of the market there.

    I'm loving these. And no size especially makes it great because they don't have to jack up the price making yet another trailer to match.
