    I never understood the argument of "they look like knockoffs!" but this honestly does. There's very basic paint apps missing and they already removed a huge part of the plastic and parts cost thanks to taking out the MechTech weapon. It's kind of staggering...

    Same thing is currently happening with Nerf. Running changes with lots of paint operations missing. Bleh.

    That looks really bad. Whats up with Hasbro? This is really disappointing. I have the DOTM Leader BB and it looks better than this despite it being the same figure.

    Re-releasing it was a stupid idea.

    Who's going to buy the old Camaro mold? Why the hell couldn't they retool it into the 2014 Concept version?

    This is new? I'm sure Smyths in the UK have had this in stock for a few weeks now.

    The attempt to make the mask resemble the AOE mask is... Interesting, I guess.

    Hasbro could've waited till they have the leader size 2014 Camaro mold instead of re-releasing this. I doubt this would sell well. A shelfwarmer right here and will go on clearance by end of the year..

    This didn't even sell well when it was new.
