    I mean, okay... But so what? That you jump to making a post about wanting alt mode pics without even doing the tiiiiiniest bit of checking is just silly.

    I'm too lazy for a lot of things in life. I expected the tab to include all the photos available...Like with everything else that makes front page news.

    It'd be cool to have a thread gallery, that lets you click through every image attached to a thread. Super-helpful, actually. @Tony_Bacala

    I’m the same way. I occasionally will transform a legends or CHUG figure but typically only touch my MP bots to update the display or get a picture. My problem is trying to get a nice looking display without to much of a cluttered look. I think that is where MPs pull ahead. Ultimately I think it is great that we have such excellent options at the extreme ends of the spectrum. I just wish I had the income and space to pick up everything.

    Salivating over here. Very exciting about AT and Rodimus... I love it when they release an Autobot and a Decepticon at the same time.

    Hardhead has also got to be close to release at this point. Not sure what difficulties they’re having with the Headmasters, but I would assume we see at least the next two in the next couple months.

    Surprised we haven’t seen color sample shots of Rodimus.

    You crazy. I accidentally pre-ordered it twice even.
    This is probably very accurate. Their current schedule is about 4-5 months from prototype reveal (July) to shipment (would be November). If we get color sample figure shots from them in October, then November is a very safe bet.

    I want to see colored pics before I decide to preorder. I can see this being around 40$ easy

    This would be an amazing feature. 99% of non-picture posts around here are just rehashing of old arguments.

    So, about height, it will be 12 centimetres? Sure? No way of 6 7 inches?

    12 cm would be right around 4 3/4". 12 cm is what they said, and it's also the height of their recent Blaster figure. Their latest Ultra Magnus is ~13 cm to the head, so I don't have any reason to expect Astrotrain to be much, if any bigger than the 12cm they stated.
