    Huh. Not as eye searing as I was expecting, Robot mode looks ok, but the color breakup on the alt mode is kind of wack.

    After this awesome unreleased G2 Mirage I just need an official Diaclone Red Mirage and will be so happy! Can retire my customs.

    It's so surprising that they haven't gone for that diaclone color scheme yet. Probably cause they've figured out they don't sell that well.

    Looks great. I need this in my life. Count me in for someone who wanted the toy head however.

    If they plan to milk this mold, I still want to see red Mirage and I even think this mold would look great as Beast Machines Mirage (dark blue and yellow)

    I can appreciate the effort the early 90s made in one-upping the 80s as far as taking style and aesthetics to the eXtR3mE.

    That being said, as an 80s kid myself, I'm admittedly a G1 snob (who looks down upon G2).;)

    I doubt I'd get this anyway, buuut... I think they should have prioritized the alt mode for the gator detailing instead of the bot mode. Having those tampos on the spoiler just feels wrong. Toyhax will no doubt fix that though.

    Something feels off.

    The ugly, cheap, gray plastic was a bad choice. Muted yellow or neon yellow would've been better.

    This looks okay to me. Not terrible, but not loud enough either.

    I hope this isn't the finished figure, because it sure doesn't look it.

    The tampo graphs are missing?... This must be a factory version of this figure.

    The silver face makes such a difference.  Jazz really needed that for his G2 figure.

    they’re mostly there, they’re just… not well placed? Took me awhile to see the gator scales.

    I kind of...don't like it? I'm not sure if it's just the lighting, but it seems rather dull for what it is supposed to be. And no toy head....huh. it's a shame, I was pretty excited for this.
