    The hollow legs made me skip out on the first version of this mold, but this version looks so good that I don't even care about the hollowness (the black legs seem to hide it better anyway)!

    I have TAV-21 (I still kind of prefer that look) but I'm getting this one for sure. Looks cool in robot mode (although the kibble underneath the truck is going to get intense since they're adding the entire robot mode chest to the arm kibble underneath). Has the giant sword. And mini-con port support.

    I am thoroughly pleased by how Takara is fleshing out the toy ranks for RID2015. Hasbro gives us some decos and molds, Takara gives us others - with not a very big overlap.

    Those legs remind me of rid Ultra Magnus.

    Are there any pics of him in scale with his PRID and Beast Hunters voyagers?

    What is the deco based on? Is this color scheme in the show (I haven't watched the last three episodes of RID).

    So wait, the only difference between TAV Jazz & TAV Jazz Battle Mode, is the visor? The deco is exactly the same, otherwise?

    As much as I prefer the first design of OP in RID2015, I can't turn this figure down.

    The Warrior Class RID 2015 Robots are the same size as Deluxe Class Transformers from other lines.

    I was planning to just have the Hasbro version and TAV21 - both of which I have... but damn, how can I pass this one up!

    Very nice paint app. Don't dig the black in truck mode but I'll be displaying this guy in robot mode anyways...

    Ugh Takara you're killing my budget! ;)

    I'm glad I've got him preordered! Now to see if we get some more redecos/remolds out of the current warrior molds, it's still a bit slim pickings for me.

    I cancelled my preorder for this after owning TAV-21 and having a really hard time getting over the hollow legs. But, seeing these pics makes me want to preorder this again.

    Shouldn't Origin Drift be a Decepticon?
