    How does ehobbybaseshop work? Do you pay upfront for this pre-order or do they send you an invoice when they have the item in stock?

    I swear I'm not trolling, but how come many places are saying this release is in G1 toy colors? Looking at screenshots from the cartoon, the only differences I can pick up are some stripes on the arms and maybe the orientation of the Decepticon signs. I figure the stripes might even be canon but just never animated. Wouldn't be the first time.

    Anyway I never had the G1 toy so let me know if I'm missing something obvious. I like my MPs to have cartoon accuracy, so am I crazy for thinking this looks close enough?

    It's extremely close. Everything seems to be correct in color. Some details are different like the orientation of the symbols and the stripes as you mentioned.

    The feet detailing should be silver (seems to be a metallic gray in some pics).

    Also the knee vent detail should be light blue. Either we can't see it in the pictures or it's black or dark gray. I'm hoping they painted it and it's correct.

    I did it! I'm in!

    Sold my Walmart Skywarp for $60 and cancelled my Cloud Rodimus preorder. Really, if I don't look at the actual outlay and just the budgeted expense this is the steal of the year!

    Yeah, I sold my Walmart Skywarp for $80ish, and a MiB extra TRU TC I bought for $50 for $150, so that got me covered. Its crazy what things go for if you sell at the right time

    Sold my MP-6 yesterday. His alt mode truly was a thing of beauty, but MP-11SW just looks so amazing in bot mode, and it's not a character I need variants of, so it's out with the old!

    I actually can't wait and may be more excited for this than Ultra Magnus!!

    Haha, I'm in the same boat. As others have said before, it is a great time to be a TF fan.

    Lots of people would love for Hasbro to do so, but a lot of us are not holding our breaths for it. All I can say is, "maybe."

    I'd rather have them do Ice Storm, then Bitstream or start remolding it for the Coneheads.

    I'd say no, they released thundercracker to complete the set of mp-03 Starscream and skywarp. If you want the mp-11 mold, takara is the way to go.
