    Are any online retailers selling Crosscut by itself and not as a 3 pack? Is this going to be short packed like Skids (whom I am still waiting on)?

    What a surpise - from the same ebayer who sneaks other figures out of the factory weeks/ months before the actual street date. In any event, hopefully we will get some rattrap in-hand pics pretty soon.

    Until I see Arcee pics, I refuse to believe.

    It is a little disappointing to see some swirling in the plastic but I think I can live with it. I've been loathe to get into Generations Deluxes but recently I've been re-thinking that prejudice. This guy might be my first one something about him is just really appealing. All the weapons don't hurt!

    I'm skeptical about the alleged Arcee and Chromia wave. Seems weird that Hasbro wouldn't officially announce or preview what would surely be widely popular figures, especially when they just had a huge toy fair where they previewed a pretty long-game slate of products. On the other hand, one assumes that retailers have some reason for thinking they exist.

    When doing the deco specs, designers have a limited amount of deco at their disposal. To paint the whole car silver would use up all of the deco "budget". There would be no deco left for the face/head, feet, rims, etc...The deco needs to be split up over the entire toy. Personally I think this guy is really well done.

    Ditto for dreadwing, starscream's Armada body, Goldfire, Waspinator...

    It's pretty jarring and I wish they'd knock it off.

    Very nice, but the question remains, does he still have the same swapped thigh issues as Skids?

    (can't tell-don't have Skids)

    I knew the final product wouldn't be silver. But oh well, I'm still excited for this. Obscure character, Diaclone, decent mold even with those wonky shoulders. It's an easy buy.

    Are you guys colorblind by any chance?
    I ask because Crosscut is clearly molded in SILVER plastic.

    The only thing good about this piece of news is that reviews and videos on Rat trap and Tankor are on their way!!!!!!

    The lack of a silver topcoat is really disappointing to me, as I've been anticipating this figure for a while. It's still cool, though.

    Re: people who were wanting a silver topcoat - the last time we got that was Silverstreak.

    And even then, a) it was only the sides that needed it, not the full car and b) they already HAD to paint the sides because they were clear plastic. So I suspect he was a "well, we may as well" case.

    You "loathe" to get them out of "prejudice?" Yeesh man.

    Whatever. I mean it's not like Generations has been freaking awesome or anything.

    For some reason, and I don't know why, silver is a colour that MUST ALWAYS BE PAINTED for some people.

    I mean, this silver plastic looks quite nice. It's dark, and truely metallic. It's not like the dull grey that, say, every movie Optimus is made of. It doesn't look cheap at all, it doesn't look bad at all, and the other paint apps awarded by the lack of full silver coat are awesome.
