    Looks great, I've loved these all so far. Hopefully we'll get the Horrorcons and Jr. Headmasters as well.

    Looks like they took a lot of cues from TR version.

    He looks decent enough, though I think he looks a bit plain colourwise - perhaps a clear cabin glasswould have helped make him look less like someone forgot to paint him.

    Also he seems strangely matt. should look the bee's knees with his pals though.

    Oh and yes I'd love a Kroc repaint too - especially if they gave him a new robot head, I do think Beast Wars Basic Megatron and Optimus are well worth doing too though.

    oh damn, i quite like the look of this! :)  only thing i'd change maybe is that the tail portion was green.

    but seeing this as a wide open canvas for some custom paint apps so i'll be picking this up. ;)

    It's beautiful and grotesque, I love it. The color pallette is to be expected, though I would really like to see a version of well airbrushed greens all around, to look more like BW Crocagator megs.

    Is the gator head on B smaller? I can't see any other difference.

    took me a while to pinpoint the difference, form B has flat chest pieces added on, while form A looks likes like those two piece are removed and you see the two tabs.

    I think this is about half the size, it's not meant to compete with chug scale, it's for the legends sized stuff.

    Although, the color comparison is harsh here, the depth of the colours and shinier plastic on the titans return one is nicer, especially the darker green

    Here, the green is too flat and pale, and the pink is to bright, just in my opinion anyway

    I believe the pink gun is included to blend in better in crock mode, I'm not sure, but I believe the gun is used to connect the tail to the body, so the pink one matches for that

    Just more options, I know some are bothered by connecting joints or parts not being colour matched to the rest

    I think a half-sized Omega Supreme is in order as well. I'll take either a 3P or HasTak version, please.

    I reeeeeeeaaaally wish they didnt borrow from TR Skullsmasher so hard. :sly:  It looks mediocre for it.... The G1 toy was my favorite. Every recent iteration of Skullcruncher shrinks the croc body to this emaciated shrimp of a creature. :( 

    I want a hefty, beefy croc!
