    I don't think we've seen it before. It actually looks really good.

    Yep it’s legit. A couple stores put him up for pre-order early accidentally, these are the first images though! His ship date at most of them was early February.

    Also nice to see the more eco friendly packaging is coming to selects as well.

    Ok so supposedly this is based on earth mode sideswipe, but so far I can't really see a great difference mold wise, between the siege one. Or is it just me?

    Yeah that just looks like the regular Siege Sideswipe mold to me, not an Earth mode. Yet another “leak” that ended up not true.

    I did end up ordering one and should probably have it next week, so I can take in-hand pics if no one else gets it sooner, like someone who lives in Vegas lol.

    I use them constantly, both the site and in Portland where they have a physical store.

    Fast shipping, no issues on anything I’ve gotten from them.

    I think they are regulars on Pawn Stars, they are the experts when Rick says he wants to call in his guy for more information, lol.

    The only part they need to change for earth mode is the canopy. From this picture there is zero means to tell one way or the other.

    This actually looks pretty good. Glad they didn't do battle damage on him. Still waiting for an Armada Wheeljack deco from this figure.

    Looks like Hasbro\'s transition to plastic reduction is gonna translate to the removal of the plastic trays from the Selects box, the retirement of tags to hold figure in place and the unfortunate return of paper ties. I\'m fine with removing the plastic trays, but the tag ties were the best bindings TFs ever had. At least its not a return to Armada era wire ties.
