    Looks better than when he was first revealed. A definite purchase for me now instead of me being on the fence. The only thing I still really don't like is how the wheels sit on the back. Those panels are almost as big as the door wings AND they can't be angled back any! Makes his upper body look way too wide and clunky while the rest of him is very nicely proportioned. I really hope there's a fix for that because as of now it's a big flaw, IMO.
    I agree. The Decepticon deaths were some of the low points for me in dotm. Literally all four of the top name Decepticons went out like bitches. Soundwave was better as a satellite, so I hope we get a figure of that design! Although I'm still excited for this new Mercedes figure.

    It's a shame because I think it was something of an achievement to have the "Big Four" in one film, all with great designs. And the Africa meeting scene with three of them is probably one of the most unabashedly old-school scenes in the entire film series. The movie's focus understandably needed to lie with Sentinel Prime, but I think they also envisioned this as a "finale" at the time, so they felt the need to sweep the board clean and off them all, even if most of them were done in unsatisfying ways.

    The Decepticons are my biggest issues with the films. Each and every single last one of them is incredibly underdeveloped. Even Megatron is just reduced to BLABARAAARRR EVIIILLL, only he speaks English.

    Thankfully I can buy the toys and make my own stories with them in my head ;)

    If you want a compelling Movieverse Decepticon story, I strongly encourage you to read the IDW comic "Reign of Starscream", which takes place in between Movie 1 and 2!

    You could probably get a used copy pretty cheap on Amazon. Not sure of its availability digitally though!

    I'm not putting faith in any of these until we see prototypes. They're teasing way too much stuff. At this point, I doubt the toys themselves would be out before 2021.

    Hey, some news/speculation, is better than none at all ;) 
    I have to agree with you, I wish the wheel panels collapsed, or were smaller. But I think that tilting the wings up kinda helps with the wheels.
    Thank you for selling me on which Prime to get. Seems like the BA Prime is the one for me!!
    What if I want 2 WHOLE pieces?? :p

    I see you have that BmB ironhide, any chance you could get a pic of him with the base MPM prime if you have him?
