    This one looks like it may also have a deeper elbow bend.
    It doesn't have an ab crunch like the MP, but otherwise it seems to stack up.
    I have and adore the MP, but this one will be a very welcome addition.

    Yeah, I think that's due to all of the greebles, which some hate. I actually really enjoy them, and it makes the altmode look like a very large and "realistic" space ship. I just wish he didn't have the undercarriage, because it hurts the look a lot.

    I also think I like the battle damage and wear, because ever since I played F-Zero GX back in the early 2000s I fell in love with the look of fictional machines with wearing around the edges and such, because it helps the design look more used and more like something that would exist in real life, and not something fictional that always looks pristine like the vehicles in the older F-Zero games looked.

    I also felt the same way about Samus' design in Metroid Prime, because back then I liked the dinged up and battle worn look her suit was going to sport in the early footage, but halfway through development it was replaced with a super clean and polished look that, while I also like, I preferred the worn look back in the day (these days I don't like it so much because of other details like the weird arm cannon and the overly thick visor, but I wish they'd give her a more traditional design with some battle damage at some point).


    I like the clean aesthetic too, but I like the worn aesthetic almost as much.

    Hey, if they do at least you can army-build them and make a few cameras!

    It's going to be painful to budget pick these. It's going to be tough.

    Optimus, Megatron, Hound, Soundwave and his Spies are absolutely must haves. The rest are great too. But if I'm broke somehow, I'll focus on those.

    I feel he kinda needs to shelfwarm though. So everyone can get 3 of each.

    I feel your pain. Ultra Magnus, Optimus, Soundwave, Skytread, & Reflector (just 1 for now) are definites, but I can't make up my mind on the Micromasters. Need the Spies because of Soundwave, but I would like an actual micromaster patrol, just don't know if Battle or Air Strike.

    I'm glad we know the majority of releases, but I wish the rest were known; for a budget-minded person like me it's really frustrating!

    I'm not going to bother with hunting 3 down. Too much effort. Online ordering only for these gangstas.

    Pathetic. Why army-build and make a few cameras when you could make just a single, long, multi-lensed camera? Now that is the endgame.

    Oh you poor naive fools.

    There is no perfect pack. No matter how Hasbro packs Frak the fandom will be up in arms. Collectors will slide him to the extreme of one end or the other. If he's "shortpacked" (i.e. perceived as shortpacked) then it'll cost way more then the price of a leader to complete a set. People will accuse scalpers resulting in even more attention and scalpers. If it's "longpacked" (again, perception) it will shelf warm because collectors are waiting for a discount to complete the set. They'll wait too long for sales, all the shelfwarming Fraks wills just up and disappear off shelfs one day and they'll blame scalpers. Or. . .the figures will warm shelves, preventing new waves from being ordered and people will blame Hasbro distribution. And don't forget the people who are all gushing about Frak right now but once it hit shelves they won't buy it because "it lacks ankle tilts. . ."

    One of these things is not like the others. . .*cough* huge undercarriage *cough* Shoot, I'm thinking of just buying Siege screamer and repurposing it as Cybertronian Sky Lynx.

    I am kinda torn on the new Soundwave minions, but they'll scale really nicely with a Voyager. I wanna see what Rumble and Frenzy will look like at this scale and I really hope we get Blaster and his minions in the second phase of WFC that follows Siege.

    I love Megatron, but I hate that gray plastic. I wish/hope that they use the gray that they used for the Dinobots if we're not going to get some kind of silver paint. Whatever, though, I am in for him. It's like WFC (game) Megs and G1 Megs had a wonderful, voyager sized baby.

    Based on what I have seen, this line is going to break me. I want it all. I have extremely high hopes for Prowl, but I guess it will be a few months before we see what he is going to look like. Since we're getting Red Alert, I wonder if we're getting a new Sunstreaker at some point to finish the Lambro trio.

    They're going to be sold as a two pack like the other micromasters

    Did you use something like nail polish remover? Because that stuff contains acetone, which melts plastic.
