    If they're releasing him a second time, they're likely to cover more new ground by releasing him in one of his other color schemes.

    It's pretty much all over him.

    Is there a term to describe how I feel like the blue on Straxus just...pulls me in? blends into the background? absorbs my eyes?

    Mesmerizing? Captivating? I like his colors too, but it’s the headsculpt I can’t stop staring at. It’s fascinating and really alluring to me.

    He might not be a perfect 1 to 1 representation of the comic design, but for a Galvatron retool he's pretty close to as good as it can get and I love how he looks. I cant wait to get my hands on this figure.

    I really hate that Hasbro's pulling this BS of introducing a new mold as a gimmicky figure first... and we don't know if/when we'll get a "clean" version later like they did with Galvatron... it's almost like there's a curse/they're taunting us with this specific mold :lol 

    I feel like if I don't buy this now, even though it'll be super expensive for me in Japan, I may miss out entirely, but I really don't care for the comic "shading" especially how it makes his legs asymmetrical...

    Like, I feel like it's all but a given that in the mainline or somewhere else they'll probably eventually do these colors... but since we have no guarantee, it's frustrating:

    If we ever get another Straxus, it would definitely be one of his significantly altered color schemes. Even then, it seems unlikely. For anyone who prefers Straxus with this color scheme (I’d wager that’s most), it would be ridiculous for Hasbro to rerelease an exclusive, comic-only $55 figure again just with no tiny dots or black streaks. Hasbro still hasn’t rereleased Astrotrain without his Siege smudging.

    Really hoping Hasbro takes full advantage of Straxus’ many color schemes. I want them all. IMG_9372.jpeg IMG_9373.jpeg IMG_9374.jpeg IMG_9375.png

    I think there was always extra engineering in Galvatron

    That looks real cool until you see the rest of the concept.

    They could have done something cool with the head.

    Of course the concept doesn't fully match...so maybe they did?

    He actually turned out way better than I expected! I don't love the colors but I preordered him anyway, I might wait to open him a bit to see if there's any chance of a repainted version minus the cel shading but if not, I don't mind him being a bigger custom job.

    I'd like to make my own cloak and skull shoulder add-on to make Straxus look a bit like that concept art.

    Really glad I ordered the Star Raider Ferak to have as one of this Straxus's lieutenants. They should look great together!

    I’ll definitely put my Insecticons with him too. If they ever get around to reissuing Ramjet (or maybe Thrust, please?) they’ll go with him just the same, but I’m not buying Dirge until then.

    That’s just crazy then. Dirge will be long gone by the time we get Ramjet next year. Thrust is probably coming eventually.
