    We thinking the intent is to recreate that whole scene? Confirmations on new figures for Hot Rod, Kup, Blurr and Perceptor not far off...

    That's the one. So I'm guessing that one would be just a white repaint of the ER Optimus Prime mold.

    I think if I'm gonna pick up ER prime this'll be the way I do it. I really went all out on the Siege mold, since I friggin' love it. Well, I suppose if a cooler variant of ER prime drops, like a Nemesis or such I'd be down. $50 bucks is a bit much for me since I'm not a big fan of the trailer. It just seems a little undersized. I love the novelty of this figure, and the fact that they are just selling dead guys now. Awesome. :p

    If dead Starscream manages to be a ghost and isn't made of brittle translucent plastic, I'm in.

    I realize Takara got quite married to the translucent look but in the actual cartoon he tended to look more like cloudy nearly-glow-in-the-dark plastic like Jetfire's blast effects or Marvel Legends Human Torch. I'd like the soft glow, cloudy translucent look over clear plastic.

    As an added "bonus" if they actually made him out of blast effect plastic and if that plastic does melt ABS as some claim, we could expect that Starscream to literally destroy other Transformers which is horrible but also kind of funny in a way.
    You laugh but maybe the next "cel shaded deco" trend could be manga themed grayscale decos with rendering lines or Marvel Comics decos with outlines like the NECA Turtles.

    And honestly, Marvel comics decos should have Andrew Wildman style faces.

    The screaming face would fit right in with G2.

    I don't honestly know about Ghost Starscream or Skywarp screaming. I have a second Starscream ordered for a headswap.

    But G2 Starscream with the screaming face would be perfection IMHO, particularly since he'd have the dark black face and so teeth, which G2 characters all seemed to have, would work so you can tell he has a mouth.

    On that subject... I think G2 is a great option for redecoing Earthrise Prime. The big difference is the black trailer with a different decal but in animation G2 Optimus was a brighter eye searing red and his blue was more purple and his chest windows were muted. And he had silver/gray biceps like this toy. The animation gave him bright teal eyes but the comic rather memorably gave him VERY bright yellow eyes and the G2 emblem on his shoulder. The ultimate G2 comics homage would probably chrome up parts of Optimus since they loved chrome covers.

    It would go very well with the rumored Selects G2 Megatron, especially if that had the comics deco G2 Megatron. The blue face was pretty cool and they sometimes muted the green and purple tank deco.

    There's no way those figures are going to be acceptable in WFC, it was a line wide reboot. I did like them at the time, but this is a different line and aesthetic. They're coming.

    Siege with its overdone greebles and “battle damage” paint and vaguely scifi alt modes was a bit of a different aesthetic, but other then being scaled down a bit Earthrise is basically identical aesthetically to the majority of CHUG to date.

    (and I’m reaaaaaaly picky on aesthetics, which is why I passed on most of Siege)

    If Part 3 is a good mix of 86 cast stuff I don't mind seeing the Japanese characters get a spotlight. Sure its cool to see Rodimus, Ultra Magnus, Kup...but damn it Hasbro Takara gimme some Victory love. Heck have fun with this finale line to end all finales....

    This is the kind of stuff that should be TakaraTomyMall exclusives. NOT mainline characters like the Seacons. Missing out on a dull/boring gray Optimus Prime is nowhere near as bad as missing out on the very first modern update a G1 character that is also a full combiner team.

    This seems like it was supposed to be a SDCC exclusive before it got canceled. I bet it will probably a Pulse or Amazon exclusive
