    Mirage keeps looking better and better.

    Menasor looks great too!

    He does keep looking better and better. I actually don't mind the rear wheels below the knees (or shins) since we can actually see a little knee articulation, a little high though. :)

    That mirage model does indeed make the world go right round like a record baby right round, round round. Hopefully it'll be repainted...into a decepticon!

    I don't mean to start any "oh noes, Quickmix is cancelled!!!" rumors, but what's his release date. I'm a little curious as to why we haven't seen anything about him either in stock photos or his bio on the website(anyone want to clue me in on how to find bios not listed on their page).

    It took a long time until we got listings and color pictures for Menasor. There's still plenty of room for Quickmix in the second half of the year.

    We still have to go through Soundwave and Nemesis Breaker waves yet. I'd say we'll be seeing Quickmix shortly after that.......probably alog with another recolor.

    Oh.....and Menasor FTW!

    I think it's safe to say that Quickmix will show up sooner or later... With the Cybertron cartoon still going, I'm sure they'll get all the characters out before the season ends, unlike Takara did for GF...:(

    "Armor Scattorshot" or the possible Mudflap redeco would be my guesses.

    Mudflap would make a fine redeco into another Giant Planet character.

    So nobody has pointed out the obvious Meister implication.......

    A. He's apparently not going to be renamed Jazz like his little Titanium counterpart
    B. He's apparently not getting any new paint of decal apps like his little Titanium counterpart.

    Maybe this isn't final in the picture but it seems like a strong enough implication.

    I did...

    On a side note, doesn't it seem like Hasbro is overcompensating on the Tracks???

    Alt Mirage is just beautiful. A tear rolled down my eye. Cybertron Metroplex looks great. Love the color scheme.

    You beat me to it. I was about to say that noone had mentioned Metroplex.....maybe because his alt.mode makes me sad.

    Just a little. From crazy rare to shelfwarmer in no time. I guess it's better than a 5th version of the mold though. I say pull Tracks and double pack Mirage. Mirage is hot. And I swear I drove past him the other night.

    Menasor doesn't look quite as good as I'd hoped actually, but I'll get him anyway. Need more 'cons if nothing else. :)

    Looking great for sure. That Jetfire repaints looks better to me than it initially did. Menasor looks wonderful in bot mode. I hope the toy lives up to that in hand. As for Mirage, I'm definitely excited about him! I wonder if any Alternators/Binaltech afterwards will be able to top him?

    Loving Mirage to death, but something finally occured to me.....everytime I looked at his head sculpt, it reminded me of someone else. Then it finally dawned on me...it's Blaster. I am not as skilled with the cut and paste, but if someone wants to grab a headshot of blaster from the cartoon, and then get the unpainted head shot of Mirage...the resemblance is amazing. Still the best Alt in a long time however..

    Maybe from a few angles, but not that much. I also noted the resemblance too, but never mentioned it:
