    Think I’ll pick this up. Will this one have the G1 accurate-correctly assembled shoulders?

    We won't know until they start arriving, but it doesn't cost anything to hope.

    I want this :drool: 
    But why didn't they make the belt out of the same red plastic they use for the shoulder pauldrons like the G1 figure did?
    And why are the Decepticon insignias on his shins upside down?

    I'd expect next week. Something would have been posted to social media by now.

    Yeah, it was annoying to have to get a Toyhax set to "fix" Star Convoy too, and you'd expect good stickers for the premium price tag.

    I'm hoping we get a Selects Devcon from Scourge, while I'm here. Perfect time to give us a proper, affordable toy of the toughest bounty hunter since Boba Fett, who bravely fell into the maw of a giant sand monster

    Because of how the components are laid out in the tools used to make the toy. The belt part must not be on the same tool as the shoulder pylons.

    Because the legs don't stay in the same orientation on this modern toy as they do on the original G1 toy.

    If you want the Decepticon insignias to be the right way up in cannon mode they will need to be applied in the "wrong" orientation in robot mode. It can't be helped, it's just the result of this toy transforming a bit differently.

    Because then Kingdom Galvatron would be missing his black pauldrons. If I had to guess, it’s on the same sprue as the foldout struts in his legs instead.

    This body will make a great base for a proper shattered glass Megatron custom

    Maybe Pulse is a bit slow after the holiday... Or these stores are jumping the gun to get pre-orders up to keep with other retailers.

    Hasbro officially revealed the figure on the TF Instagram, so retailers aren't jumping the gun (other than the one that had it up yesterday). Pulse is just behind for some reason.

    Damn. These photos show that even the abs are (four individual) stickers. That's a bummer, but I'm still very excited for this release.

    Oddly enough, the official notice on the Transformers Facebook page has a direct link for pre-orders... to Entertainment Earth.

    Why not Pulse, folks?
