    I dunno, MMC's Arcee compacted everything just fine so I'm not sure why Takara/Hasbro struggle so much.

    Anyway, that aside, I like the face sculpt render more than the MP and the chest is far better. I'd jump at this for under £20.

    Scorponok looks interesting. Not sure I have the space for any more bots that size but I like what I see. Sky Lynx looks pretty cool, though I've no real fondness for the character. Oddly enough Fasttrack is the standout, I love what they're doing with the base minions.

    Supposedly it stores on the back. What gets me most about her though is the fake chest on top of it all.

    As an SS fan, I'd say you can say the same about a lot of those figures. How many are there like Jazz and Lockdown where they just said "fuck it" and threw most of the car unceremoniously on the back? At least the ER ones do something with their kibble.

    lol, okay.

    He looks like he's probably between 12-18 inches at the tallest point in citymode.

    What do you guys think.

    Usually I don't buy titan class. But Scorponok, I'll make an exception.

    Yeah they TAKE IT OFF before slapping it on the back, or leave it as the most awkward arm capes. Does anyone GENUINELY enjoy that Hoist design?

    While Sky Lynx looks objectively amazing, I think I... honestly kinda prefer his Combiner Wars version? I don't know, I sort of prefer him as a Triple-Changer (dino to cat to shuttle) rather than being a gestalt.

    I just never liked the bird mode and while the shuttle mode looks great, the fact that the lynx mode forms a base for the shuttle kinda breaks my brain (it's at least better than Omega Supreme since at least the shuttle and base can form individual robots but... yeah).

    I dont care about partsforming with Arcee(or any TF) as long as she looks good in robot mode(which I display primarily anyway). I kinda wish more TFs used partsforming to smooth out the robot mode

    Technically, Arcee and Springer can do some things on the back seat of... Arcee:eek:

    Azalea is clean, but lacks proper proportions. It's a good figure though.

    Waist swivels are also mostly nonexistent in SS.

    He looks neat, I'll give it that. Personally tired of the G1+ aesthetic as.of late, but his two-stage head and Fasttrack look quite nice.

    I’ll at least get Fasttrack and maybe Scorponok.

    Perfectly happy with Thrilling 30 Arcee and considering the hell it took to get him, Combiner Wars Sky Lynx.

    might as well throw in fast-track too. Can't wait to see the actual prototype photos from toy fair.

    I am really hoping for a proper cartoon accurate Headmaster Arcee out of this mold. Its a slight improvement over the old one. I could see some skipping this one if they had the old one because its just slightly better. Me I support g1 continuity appearing fembots so Ill buy my usual 5.
