    1. Why in God's name didn't the first Fallen figure look like this??
    2. If they were going to make the figure this awesome, why not paint in in movie-accurate deco?

    Seriously, whoever makes the final decisions at Hasbro should be fired.

    1. I suspect that they had very little time to design it the first time around. Now they had all the time in the world to perfect it.

    2. To avoid confusion with the original version I guess, maybe they think gun-metal grey is too close to dark green from a distance to the casual buyer?

    This and stores don't want to oreder the same thing. At least in my area, the first version of the fallen is still readily available. A different color scheme "tricks" stores and casual buyers into thinking its something all new. Stores don't want the same product they ordered last year.

    Cyrotek Fallen, at least it's a recolor retool. Dumb but I want it.

    1: I will get this mold, but paint it more movie accurate.
    2: UNLESS this isnt the fallen but a prime. Then i will get two, one for the prime and one for the fallen.

    I KNOW.:banghead:  now they wanna get it right. but the paint scheme is dumb. its just a lot of repaints to come.:redface2:  hasbro o hasbro.:rolleyes2 :rolleyes2 

    the causual buyert is some 8 yr old's parents. and all parents hear is "mommie i want so and so" and when hasbro releases too many repaints, the parents tend to depend on what the package says and if that doesnt work, their kids favorite color.:2c:

    I love these guys, they remind me of the original Ninja Turtle toy line's Foot Soldiers.

    And I still haven't seen any one do the Horatio pose with Optimus and the Fallen's head, that will show up soon I suppose.

    i sense many custom repaints of this figure in the near future,quite an improvement from the ROTF fallen but hasbro yet again fails in color and joints,but aside from the color scheme im actually cool with this re-mold. These kinds of re-molds have been used on recon ironhide,cannon BB and the pistol sideswipe,i wonder what other re-molds are yet to come?

    I refuse to get something that can have its face ripped off, even if the paint job is cool and it comes with a spear

    Wow I may actually pick this guy up. I really love the blue coloring. Plus he looks more like one of the Primes then the Fallen and I like the staff too.

    Looks much better than the original green Fallen, but as far as color wise, the Burning Fallen is much better looking, but this Prime Fallen takes the cake on gimmicks with his staff and removable helmet.

    Rating from best to worse is:

    The Blue Prime Fallen: Best
    The Burning Fallen: 2nd
    The Green Fallen: Worse

    LOOKS BAD ASS. The regular Fallen figure is a great figure to begin with, and this one builds upon it, with enough differences to remain unique. Will buy.

    The changes to the mold are really nice, but why in the world would they think those colors were appropriate for the Fallen?
