    It's highly annoying during transformation so I'd definitely call it an issue... Especially since I've opened my retail version since my original post and it's perfect

    Ok, I couldn't resist another shot at getting him. Hopefully my wallet has a couple of weeks to recover before bbts hits me up for Omega Supreme's arms and legs.

    That's the current guess. I personally wouldn't mind seeing a Rodimus Prime repaint as well, with entirely black/charcoal legs and a darker red overall color scheme, maybe a different head.

    Man I want this guy. He would look nice with Rioter Despotron and my Igear Raptor seekers.

    looks a bit odd to see a decepticon symbol on these colors when he only got repainted in the comic for spectralist symbology and still has the autobrand.

    Nice! Instead of making mine an evil Hotrod I gave him the G2 Autobot symbol. It feels very much like a G2 color scheme to me (I know in reality it is not).

    That's a great idea! You should add an ammo belt on him also and stand him next to G2 Sideswipe.

    What's the extra head for? At a glance it looks identical to the one that's on him.

    edit: Paik's video review says it has a smirk. I'll take his word for it. :)

    Left side of the lip is slightly upturned.

    I am grateful of the wings popping out. Otherwise his shoulders couldn't pivot back to allow his arms to come forward...

    Unless, you know, you're into the spindly black posts look.

    Shame that they didn't hinge the wings.

    Got mine as well. Really enjoying the colors. I regret buying the original.

    For me who don't know anything about idw this would make a great con. That alt mode is fantastic!

    What are the odds this becomes a wide release? Usually MMC's con exclusives make sense to me since they're more like "special" versions of existing molds (i.e. 2 versions of Sphinx turning invisible, rally repaint of Terraegis, etc.), but this repaint of Calidus is how he currently appears in the comics, so I'm not sure why the limited release. This seems like a no brainer for a wide release. I'm asking because I'd hate to pick this guy up only to see a wide release with a lower price tag a month from now.

    I agree with you completely. When they released the original I was expecting this to be announced later since it's just a repaint. I don't know how likely it is now they never released any of the other convention exclusives from previous years at mass release.
