    That’s exactly what’s going on. The other cockpit is just shoved in at the bottom real tight and you just couldn’t see it in the images provided because of the angle. You’re absolutely right about the cockbutt!

    Even though it's not likely. Just one can hope there is still at least one more deluxe in wave 5 to be revealed. Don't get me wrong. These are just awesome.

    Yeah I could totally believe that, I only thought Autobots as they did that last year & this last wave of Siege is already pretty Decepticon heavy as it is, but so long as some of War for Cybertron Part II is revealed I’m happy!

    That’s what Hasbro called it when they had their official Decepticon fan vote for next year (the Needlenose / Runamok / Gnaw / Shrapnel one), so i’d say it’s almost a total lock as official unless something seriously big has changed (only way I could see it changing last minute now, would be like how Titans Return was originally Titan Wars etc, but I highly doubt it)

    I'm wondering too if he'll have armor, but his writeup makes it sound like instead of armor his accessories form a really big cannon:

    If the accessories peg together into a cannon about the size of Shockwave's hoverboard, it would fit the pattern and parts/count sizes.

    The one thing about Astrotrain that's going to drive me crazy: his front train wheels aren't in line with the rest of his wheels. HOW CAN HE RIDE THE RAILS??

    I'm greatly excited about Astrotrain, they finally made a good cartoon aesthetic version of him.

    Apeface: looks fantastic and is my favorite of the group!

    Astrotrain: while i will still buy him, for a leader class figure i would expect both the alt modes to look alot better.

    Spinster:  looks fantastic as well, sense he does not come with any targetmaster I\'m expecting the battlemasters to continue. 

    Crosshairs: i was really hoping they would change the large autobot targetmasters into headmasters the same as they did with the large decepticon targetmasters triggerhappy, slugslinger, and misfire from titans return.  I would now expect all three to be repaints of siege figures which is kind of boring.

    NOBODY REASONABLE IS ASKING FOR SOLID PLASTIC PARTS JESUS

    We just don't want the hollowness to be on display so obviously. Reading is hard.

    Perfect? The truck mode colors are all wrong and so is the head. That's hardly perfect.

    I wonder if one of the cockpits splits to become the "wings".

    Really happy about all these announcements. Not too thrilled about the quality of Astrotrain\'s alt modes (mostly the train) or Apeface\'s jet mode, but I can get over it.

    At first I thought it was the IDW design, but then I remembered the original toy had this head too... so it can fit into the gap on the tail.

    I've been trying to work that out myself. Like others have said, the other one could be tucked up underneath though that doesn't exactly explain how both feet are on the sides of the front. I'm also curious if the transformation could be achieved with either leg in front considering they seem to be identical. Anyway, the mold is certainly interesting and I'm curious who else we could potentially see it repainted into. I think Whirl might have a decent shot.

    edit: nevermind, the legs are not perfectly identical. The right leg has more of a bell bottom thing going on clearly making it the proper cockpit with the left leg being the faux cockpit.

    If you leave Ironhide’s chest flat (like in this photo I’ve just done) rather than pull it out I already feel like he looks 10 times more like Crosshairs! Just need a pure white sticker for the cockpit off Reprolabels (like they did for Titan’s Return Kup) & I feel he’ll look better still. 655D2FFC-C035-48D7-BCBE-B72F22E1C84A.jpeg
