    I find ER Arcee more appealing than the MP toy. Sky Lynx shuttle mode > Astrotrain shuttle mode. Also, take that NY toy fair!

    I'm amazed on how Arcee almost looks like a MP figure here.

    So... Arcee's hoverboard is 45% of her car mode. o_O

    Arcee looks great and Sky-Lynx has separate lynx and bird modes. Awesome!

    Woot! Well Arcee’s surfboard sure is a ‘thing’! Not sure if I’m replacing the thrilling 30 version, willing to wait to see pics that aren’t renders but this almost seems a step backwards.

    I was convinced FastTrack would be remolded into Roller, but looking at him now I’m not so sure.

    Sky Lynx and Scorponok look so majestic, and (as if he wasn’t getting it) Lynx mode confirmed! I see the renders for these are different to the leak we saw recently (with the exception of Sky Lynx’s launchbase mode, which actually looks pretty good here), and I notice both Scorponok getting his shield, & his main ‘head’ (Megazarak?) actually integrating into the front of the scorpion, the way Cerebros becomes Fort Max’s main tower. Those two will look great facing off together!

    I see Scorponok’s leg ‘shields’ unclips to become the back part of his shield now, which I’m not sure on, but I’m sure a 3rd party will come up with a more classic looking shield, silver leg shields & the few pieces missing from his base (plus a new gun)

    *EDIT*
    I just saw this at the bottom of FastTrack’s page, seems like he may not be a modulator/Weaponiser but instead triple change into Scorponok’s spear! That’s new, and as Scorponok’s blaster seems missing this might be something else fun to face off against Fort Max’s master sword. Now, Black Zarak repaint when? ;)  (I mean, this version of Scorponok DID have a spear!)

    There might be a error in IGN's Article. Walmart and Amazon have Arcee releasing July 1st in their systems not August 1st.

    Wow, Sky Lynx actually says "NASA" on him! His official shuttle name is "Magnificence."
    That's cool.

    Hmm. Fasttrack kind of looks like his legs detach like the Siege Weaponizers, but I'm not positive. I do think it's less likely he's re-used as Roller, though - that's not a very Roller alt-mode.

    Arcee looks good. The hoverboard looks as much like a hoverboard as Cliffjumper's shield looks like a shield.

    I have no complaints about Sky Lynx or Scorponok. They look fantastic. My SL will be permanently in base mode, but that'll be good enough (w/the shit ton of Modulators I have pre-ordered connected to him)

    FastTrack Sky Lynx and Scorponok look amazing.
    The Deluxe Insecticons would have looked tons better in a display with Scorponok, but whatever.
    I look forward to Zarak's creation :)

    Oh Fasttrack makes Scoponok's Staff according to his Product Description. That Rumored Roritchi selects repaint that supposedly cam From TRU's CA computer sound likely now.

    Oh my god, Arcee's "hoverboard" may be the most ugliest, lazy example of partsforming from an official product I've ever seen. I sincerely hope it can at least attach to robot mode in some way.

    Fasstrack and Scorponok look bomb AF.

    Never been a big fan of Sky Lynx so not sure if I'll bite, but that rocket launch base looks like it'll will be very fun to connect up with other Modulator pieces.
