    Those hands look a lot nicer than the usual IF ‘mega mits’. I prefer him without the stripes myself (though I get why people like em), though do think he could do with a few splashes of colour on his legs/arms maybe. Looking forward to this guy in any case!

    I didn't care either way with the stripes, but I think he looks cleaner without. Hope he comes out soon

    Oof, no wrist swivels. That's a real shame.

    I'll be painting mine with stripes if he doesn't come with them, definitely a design aspect I was looking forward to.

    This company really does get better and better. Looks really great.

    Is anyone else surprised by how much better this looks than the Hasbro release, despite how much smaller it is?

    I'm rarely surprised by HasTaks lackluster offering anymore. It's honestly annoying that they have so much more money to put into their product and it routinely falls short.

    Except the alt mode still kinda sucks. Regardless, he will be mine

    I’m kind of hoping for the stripes myself. Although both ways look good. Him and soundwave are the releases I’m most looking forward to.

    I actually enjoy the blocky look of the alt mode, though I tend to prefer that to a more sleek design.

    He looks wonderful. I hope we get a Hubcap repaint out of him

    He looks super articulate. It’s crazy, I just grabbed a loose IF Perceptor, this company has come SUCH a far way. They just keep improving.

    HA! I am getting a couple of these; one for my girlfriend who loves Mini Coopers! It might actually be pretty cool to get 3 of them and recreate the Italian job chase scene...:p 

    But seriously, it would be nice to see him next to NA Bee, and IF Mirage... Just to tide me over...

    Cliffjumper and Soundwave will probably be my last IF figures. Not because I dislike them, but rather this hobby is really getting out of hand.

    Next year, I plan to buy a lot less figures than this year, that's for sure.

    If I can sell a character like Starscream (albeit for 250), and skip a number of their figures, I think I am good ;) 

    I am definitely not interested in their Beast Wars or their newer stuff like Banzaitron.

    Goal for next year:
    1. Buy mostly FT stuff.

    That's it.

    Looks like he will have the stripe after all.
