    There's been rumours it's in the pipeline, but might be a while before we see it.

    Ah so you got him four months ago! Nice!
    Year?? Wait, we're near the end of 2020?!

    This year has flown by!
    You know what we should get? Accessory kits. DNA design shouldn't be the one making accessories for figures, Hasbro should be doing them. Those things that you mentioned could be in one kit. Then you could get many weapons for Optimus in another kit etc.

    Also, we want blast effect pieces!!! I don't understand why Hasbro can't sell a whole box of them :(

    It's almost the definition of polishing a turd. It's a weak mould, but the deco is gorgeous, and the retooling tweaks improve it a lot and take a lot of the cheapness out of the original, even if the base figure is still simplified.

    I only wish the ratchets in the arms had more clicks.

    I thought it was just me. Hopefully it flows by a little faster. As I'm waiting for Age of Calamity to come out.

    Here's mine:

    Deluxe:
    1. (Jet) Shatter- I truly enjoy this mold. Not fiddly for the most part, and quite characterful.
    2. VW Bumblebee- Just a fun figure.
    3. Scrspmetal- another fun one.

    Voyager:
    1. Blitzwing- Probably the best movie Voyager I have messed with since the original lines.
    2. Scrapper- my favorite of the construction bots.
    3. Movie 1 Megatron- singlehandedly killed my desire to own the MPM. Great figure and build quality. Wasn't expecting that, and was pleasantly surprised.

    Leader:
    1. Shockwave (big surprise, huh?)- wonderfully screen accurate and loads of fun.
    2...
    3...
    Okay, I didn't like any of the other Leaders, so Shockwave stands alone.

    Reinforcing my belief that this thread is more entertaining than primetime television programmes.
    He isn't bright green though right?

    (Examining a checklist) MPM Drift? (waggles hand) Not impossible. Swerve? Weeellll, maybe if there's a Sideswipe, and then, like a cute con redeco, but it's a longshot. Skids? (long pause, taps pencil against clipboard) Probably not a great idea.

    No god no not bright green.

    More like a deep blue-green / almost like deep sea blue and olive green where mixed together.

    Like this perhaps almost a little darker

    Supports the theory that Blackout/Grindor was revived alongside Megatron. Reminds me alot of deep sea Megatron's colors.

    Yeah, those photoshop things from the other day were obscenely green. This colour looks nice though, probably a bit darker and more metallic on the figure, eh?

    Yes the figure does pull off a darker - slightly metallic color

    Probably to be expected, you don't see many matte sea-blue military helicopters eh?

    Heh heh, I made a funny.
