This is up for preorder at hlj
Gotcha. I hope we get a clearer pic of his face sculpt soon.
Sweet!! $140 US!! preordered 2!
I wanna see the alternate face. I think one face may be some new design and that is what we may be seeing, and the other may be the aviators. Or it is complete hell and the aviators face is the Amazon Exclusive. >.<
Oh geez, I hope not. Aviators are his signature look!
A limit of ten per customer as well. That's a shame as I wanted twenty of them
I know I'm probably late to the party but...,

large maximum MP supercar sold separately in vehicle mode.
- Addition to being able to alter the expression in exchange for face attached, Daniel, spike, replacement fists, weapons included.
Is a complete new mold.
Most of the cab roof is the buttflap, which we kinda knew, but seeing the joint is interesting. It's a single joint and folds up (as in the roof opens outwards on the cab). This means it can fold "down" too which in bot mode = horizontal. If you're into that sort of thing you can hide the buttflap that way though it'll be visible at most angles other than front on.
It doesn't appear it would be possible to fold it the other way and hide it vertically in bot mode without shaving the edges which would unfortunately affect the alt mode aesthetically.
Me, I don't give a shit. I love it and want it now.
Yeah, the more pics I see, the more I wanna open up my gap, and by that I mean my wallet & not my legs.
Looking at the face more closely on these higher res photos it does look like there is a line below the eyes marking out where roughly the larger 'aviator' style eyes could be. Could be wrong but that's what it looks like.
Not too shabby! Put in a preorder, just in case, but I want to see how much AE will list it for. If they stick to their usual 30% off, then it may be ~$126 there. And lastly, I want to see what Amazon.JP does this time around.
The alt mode is spot on with the original G1 version... almost every nooks and corners are replicated successfully. Forearm size reduction can only be possible with some form of mass shifting , or extreme engineering befitting a more expensive priced toy.
This pic just blows me away.
*added some eyes, ha
Looking at the hi res pics I'm thinking that the bum flap could have been used to fill in the sides of the rather hollow looking torso thus felling two birds with a few extra hinges.
Hopefully they will modify the roof of the cab to fold away up on his back, rather then dangle off his ass. They just got lazy.
Yep that works
Bot mode flaws aside. The alt mode, looks absolutely fantastic, though you can tell that just like KFC's Stack, it's going to suffer from hollow cab syndrome.
I've pretty much got the entire transformation figured out. It's absolutely amazing how this toy is quite literally ALL hinges and swivels.
I just hope it has enough tabs to hold every little thing into place nice and snug so nothing moves around. The arms look pretty limited in what poses they can hold. as do the hands.
And for such a big bot he sure does have a rinky-dink gun. it's more like a pistol than a rifle.
it's a shame his whole torso is just a hollow mess of folded up bits (Just like MP Hotrod/Rodimus Prime)
BUT, it's still got the matrix chamber gimmick which is a plus
The legs look a bit disappointing and seem a bit cheep with everything so exposed like it is.
Hoping those hands don't fumble the matrix when given to him....
Yeah the tiny gun is probably my only real complaint. Then again it was with MP-10 as well.
if they fumbles... thats a feature more than a flaw. UM is a reluctant matrix holder in the cartoons. =)
