    Obviously buying this for Mainframe and will spend the rest of time trying to offload the other two.

    I’m really disappointed that a Takara-exclusive Jazz is still going with 14 as the number instead of 4. That would have been the one thing that led me to keep it. Cartoon colored Prime is boring.

    Ok I thought that maybe Warpath would a good fit but the body is way to off. But if they were to use wheeljack and give a little retooling in the chest he would be a better fit.

    I’m sure 86 Optimus will be great and have plenty of features but it will most likely be much more toon-styled and probably have a faux chest and integrate the wheels inside the legs for a cleaner look.
    Personally I prefer when vehicle kibble is integrated into the robot design even if that means it’s less accurate like Earthrise Prime.

    Yeah they do have that habit! It’s why I’m suspicious that there’s a new MPM Bumblebee on the way, since they’re reissuing MPM3 as a “premium” painted version.

    I will gladly take Prime if you or anyone doesn’t want him.

    OK. What about the alt mode, tho?
    That would take a pretty extensive retool for it to not be a derpy box.

    Whatever the case, it would be great to get more Un-Action Mastered characters.

    Hasbro's Earthrise line didn't have a premium paint budget.

    From blowing up the image to redonkulous levels in Photoshop, it **looks** like it has red stripes on the blue bonnet strip, and a silver visor. But to be completely honest, at that resolution, I'm only taking a wild guess. :shrug

    Oh heck, might want to cancel my earthrise reissue preorder with this info. I really want that Mainframe even if I really don\'t need a third Jazz and those white thighs really pop on OP.

    I had my fingers crossed hard that a dramatic capture for the autobots would have had the Netflix Bumblebee and an Ironhide with the yellow stripe, but some things are not meant to be...

    I was just thinking what could be next for Dramatic Capture, and lo and behold this pops up. I probably won't get this set, perhaps if it included a different Autobot besides Jazz, like Sideswipe or Prowl, I'd be more tempted, but as it stands, the Mainframe/Teletraan-1 repaint in more accurate colours for the robot mode isn't enough of a draw for me.

    Well, Jazz will be a hard sell to most, but if 86 Optimus is super toony, people are still gonna opt for Earthrises aesthetic, I think it’ll at least have a market

    I don't know if I'm alone in this, but I truly don't care about Optimus Prime's trailer, as a toy; at the very least, I can live without it, especially if its omission leads to a better price. ($110 for three figures is a better price, in my book, compared to $90 for one figure, and a trailer.)

    In this case, I already own an Optimus Prime figure, so I'm not in the market for either of these two options, but I absolutely can see this particular set's appeal.

    I guess more people just want Optimus and Jazz than I thought! Hopefully that means someone will offload mainframe for about 35 bucks when this releases.
