    You can see the feet turn into his gun-mount "wings". So my guess is, the two cockpits fold up to face AWAY from each other, one forming the real one, and the other hidden under the punk robot body. There are differences between the two cockpits, actually - you can see the right leg forms the real cockpit.
    I generally dislike fake chests/parts like this, but I can see why they did it - if the cockpit just split in half vertically, it would be super skinny and thin for a calf.

    Who won the fan vote, anyway? I never seen a news post about that...

    Masterpiece has become a fanwank otaku place ever since some demented toy designed got convinced LESS details BETTER and elaborate designs need to be sacrificed on the altar of anime accuracy.
    I stopped collecting after Tracks, and never looked back.
    Also, Marvel always gonna trump Sunbow for me. Better stories, more character development. I can forgive some Car Wash of Doom and boring late Budiansky stories for all the great lore and character moments Furman gave us, but heck, even Budiansky is responsible for a lot of favourites, like Blaster or Skullgrin.

    Yes! Of course!

    Anyone know if we will get a siege Brawn, Sunstreaker, Tracks or Wheeljack?

    I’m guessing we will get Wheeljack eventually but really hoping for Brawn and other bots.

    These look amazing! Especially glad to finally be getting Apeface. I'll echo what some have said that it'd be great to get a remold out of him as Optimus Primal, maybe even get a BW Megatron out of a possible Snapdragon? I can dream... :D

    Should have brought windblade from the legends and the other just to have their targetmasters. I wasn’t going to buy the Ironhide mold at all but I’m glad I can enjoy it with Crosshairs. Maybe I’ll just give him Kups targetmaster and call it a day.


    Rest of the stuff I’m buying on sight. Can’t wait for Apeface and Spinister. Finally more Decepticons!

    It's a shame Crosshairs looks like Trash. he had such a Unique G1 alt. mode originally.

    They could have made it but chose not to.

    Maybe, and Sureshot could be a retool from the siege mirage figure but that still does not get me all that excited.

    No, to reuse his mold for hi partner would be a disgrace. Let's encourage HasTak to give us original molds, please.

    All of them look really good. That Astrotrain is so much better than the mediocre TR one.

    How is the bloody INSIDE OF THE LEGS being on display? They usually face INSIDE, you know.
