    I am tempted to see how easy doing his eyes in red is (as they were originally), kinda digging the idea of painted one black to give him a deadeye now.

    Oh I'm just talking about online lol. When it comes to aisles it's the wild freaking west. I searched every target in my state and saw nary a SS108 Prime. But I actually saw a Tarn in the wild a couple months ago

    but even online things can be unpredictable. I guess we'll just have to wait and see

    Well, the first repaint will be for the "Star Seekers" subline. No way he gets 2 entirely unique molds in one year. Most likely he's labeled a "leader" because he's packaged with some extras

    So I noticed this on Thundertron. One side of the shoulder pads have the traditional 5mm for weapons, but the other side has 2 slots. I wonder what that's for...

    This just reminds me of the one main thing that bugs me about this guy. His foot is supposed to turn into the parrot

    Parrot mode was purely fan made, sadly.

    Wish the shoulder pads had the claws like on the original, but otherwise the new one looks so much better.

    Skipping Thundertron; no connection and he doesn't look great enough imo to splurge on "just the sculpt"

    Now if they make a Leo Prime out of him? .....maybe

    I still feel so foolish forgetting to order animated Prime off of amazon until just recently, so I won't be able to get him before christmas, because he looks goddamn fantastic.

    Bit of a bummer only one of his legs seem to have an ankle tilt. I'm by no means an expert at toy engineering, but don't think it would've been impossible to achieve even on a voyager budget. That and I hope those shoulder pads can be folded down a little lower, Having them move out of the way for posing is fine and dandy, but it sort of defeats the purpose of shoulder pads if they can't cover up the shoulders.

    That said, I'm still looking forward to picking up this Chaddy Daddy of a leoformer.

    Not bad… For my collection he’s gonna fill in for the lack of a missing Voyager class Straxus! He should arrive by Friday. The Space Pirate Seacons will be his “crew” (Star Seekers) for now.

    For those that want the claw shoulder look of the original, it's sort of possible. The giant shoulder armor is removable (just a non pinned hinge) and you can pose the paws. It doesn't look THAT bad.

    Just realised how much the top of the head makes me think of the classic Steppenwolf hat design, I am now solidly 100% sold on the design.
