    It's cool because it's not the same Nemesis deco of black/teal/red we expect. There's purple and gold in there, too.

    I get it, but I’m a really enthusiastic fan of the show and I want the characters. Picking up all the deluxe, and warriors will be case by case. Like I’m definitely getting thrash, but Skywarp is the wrong gender, Elita one looks bad and I’d rather pick up the legacy version, and prime I’m waiting for the deluxe version.

    then there’s characters like sound wave and swindle who so far are only slated for one step which I skip as a matter of course. This show has great character designs that I really wish were getting high quality toys

    Like Cyberverse hard agree, these two shows have great designs (and are great shows) that deserve better toys.

    Also want a good Deluxe Elita 1.

    I believe he didn’t really answer your question though. What @Phamduc seems to be describing is how the super mode shoulders attach to the torso. The cab mode legs appear to be attached to the crotch, which I assume is what you would prefer.

    The fact that neither of the original Energon/Superlink molds ever got a Grand Scourge release still stings hard. CW/UW popping up that deco was such a pleasant shock. An updated mold as Grand Scourge would be stellar (and while we're at it HasTak should totally do a Darkside Optimus from the SS ROTF Optimus cuz he also rocked that gold; bonus points if they just tossed the DOTM stuff with him too).

    To you fans of Cyberverse, you should keep your expectations in check. Cyberverse is g1 designs with evergreen stylization for the most part, so when the characters are brought into the pre-07 aesthetic they'll essentially just be g1. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if Shadow Striker and Windblade were based more on their IDW designs than anything and marketing just decided to call it cyberverse or something, and Chromia is probably gonna just be g1 Chromia in everything but name and alt mode. I don't see any way for cybertron starscream to somehow actually be cyberverse starscream because even if we ignore the deliberately different prefixes they seem satisfied with ER starscream as their g1 starscream already.

    @Phamduc
    Does Optimus in Super Mode have 5mm ports on the arms? Specifically on the wheels like Scraphook or does he only have them on his hands, shoulders and back?

    For Primus sake I hope not.

    We don't need that damn one-off by Takara becoming the norm!

    I dont disagree, but im not sure how else they could have pulled it off within the existing classes. Personally I think they did a great job, but I get that it won't appeal to all.

    Seeing these pics of Prime makes me feel like it’s 2002 all over again. It’s gotten me in the mood to rewatch this:

    No, it’s part of Evolution. I’d expect it around July or August of this year.

    I’d love to see Legacy:Evolution Armada Optimus Prime get a bunch of repaints. Especially the Nemesis Optimus Prime and the “Origins” episode colors (I think that where OP changes colors to fight against Galvatron)
    I wonder if Energon and Cybertron Optimus Prime will get updates. The Siege Galaxy Upgrade OP probably needs a better upgrade. I don’t have the Siege Galaxy OP but it needs an update. The proportions are weird on that Siege Cybertron OP. Energon OP could be a commander due to the fact that Prime combines with Prime force. Or they could do Optimus and prime force separate from each other.
