    Because leakers who’ve seen the prototypes already said they are just remolds of G1 characters with new heads slapped on. A prime example is knockout being a lazy remold of SS jazz.

    the only ones that sound to have any hope of looking anything like they are supposed to is armada starscream and Metroplex.

    I seem to remember a lot of criticism of the figure, but I may be misremembering. I know I was thoroughly unimpressed when I saw it, so I might just be extrapolating that to other people. But given the site we're on, frankly, wouldn't be surprised if there was a ton of people who hated it on reveal.

    Well if HasTak has done the renders for the Titan Class, I hope we can see more leaks about the other figures soon.

    I think it’s less “He’s not G1” and more “This was always an ugly alt mode, why would I pay $200 for that?”

    Same. PM if necessary, please!

    EDIT: I'm piggybacking off of this post, I don't have the info, I would also like to see the slideshow, please. I should've worded it better, initially. I was excited, sorry!

    I, too, love to make judgements based on nothing but second hand information.

    I think it's so they can get him up to old Titan size with current Titan quality and I'll take it.

    I didn’t believe the leaks at first because this seemed like a pretty left-field choose but hey it’s cool to see Titans expand to non-G1 characters! Tidal Wave seems much more likely to happen now

    I mean, multiple titan toys with bad alt modes have been made. Metroplex managed to be worse than his g1 alt mode even.

    I genuinely think that this price will tank the titan line. Not many families can even afford something like that, let alone are willing to spend that much on a toy.

    It’s not like they’ve been right about everything they’ve leaked so far…..

    Oh wait.

    God, don’t you just love it when people are already comparing about an entire line based that has one leaked figure? It’s great.

    It's a brand-new mold. Probably twice the height as the original, maybe even larger.

    Your oh so accurate and descriptive portrayal of Metroplex didn't exactly help much at all.
