    Just the first half? I'd bite if it was in black/orange fallen colors. But we saw this deco on MTs website some time ago.

    Same here. I don't know why they're releasing half of it in two different decos...that are not the fallen deco.

    Wow, totally didn't know about these beforehand. I will say that the jungle camo set looks a lot better than the missile one, especially since it appears to have been made specifically for PCC Heavytread.

    I'll wait for Fallen colors too.

    Anyone at least mildly surprised by the listed ETA? That's the first Mobine releases plus the two Battle Tanker redecos all listed as hitting in December. I was figuring sometime next year before any Mobine release.

    Jungle Type seems to a match for Heavy Tread's colors.

    I believe those are for the people that were interested just to boost up their PPC's. Another way to capitalize on the mold. Meanwhile, my shelf is ready for the Fallen deco.

    Damn, that's an annoying way of doing it. Now I'm completely torn to which deco to get. I assume they're going to be releasing the core guy in the same deco's?

    But, just G2 Giant, MMC's awakening, it lets them get the kinks and QC out of the mold before they produce the guys everyone wants.

    No, sorry, I meant releasing each part seperately is annoying. I don't want to splash on the first part until I'm assured that the second part will be in the same deco (I'm sure they will, but...)

    I'm not too worried about waiting for the Fallen deco because I'm considering using Mobaine for an IDW Fort Max which means that the Marine deco is ideal, but the green version is just gorgeous.

    The Jungle type really looks great with Heavy Tread. So great that I'm tempted to replace the TFC Iron Army guys currently attached to him with this set - future MT core bot be damned (well, at least until the Fallen colored core and appendages appear).

    Oh okay, they have both decos. I think I have to buy the black/grey since we know there's something in mobine we don't know about, and that he has a gestalt head we haven't seen.

    Urgh. I want the Fallen deco.

    I also want to know most everything about the figure before I place any preorder. Can we just get the full info on this at some point?

    Man, this thing looks GREAT. Looking forward to both this and the Fallen decos.

    I think you're right.

    The real black/orange deco we saw earlier will be a standalone release most likely.

    Probably not. I think the idea is that these colors are exclusive to the accessory pack versions, and the Fallen version gets Megatronus. In my opinion, here is what they are attempting to accomplish.

    1: They want people to use these with other PCC figures without lessening the full set.

    2: Mobine itself is Intended to be the Fallen. No one will want the full set in these other color schemes.

    It makes sense when you really think about it.
