    My god! The chrome is in all the right places. That season 1 head! DANG! The articulation. No stripes on the cab! The removable cannon platform that’s also a display stand, just like @Prime135 predicted. I love it all!

    Only thing i'm disappointed with is that they chose the jetpack as red, makes it look like if it had even more backpack

    Now comes the big thing...how hard is it to transform this? Bot to cab will be a lot more complicated than the previous versions most likely. Is it easy? Or is it Rodimus Prime levels of tricky to get all the parts aligned right?

    This is a nice surprise today. I'm not a chrome fan but I gotta admit this looks great.

    Yup, because the colored pics make him look much better. I want him. I don’t think I can justify $450, but if he’s cheaper and I can unload MP10 for a decent price, he will be mine. Oh yes, he will be mine

    Looks great, but I'm priced out of this. If it were a couple hundred cheaper, I could do it. This is ridiculous

    @Liampope we need to get cracking on transformation predictions again. These new angles give us a little bit more to work with.

    I admit, I felt SUPER DUMB that I didn't think of why he had those Starscream parts listed until someone pointed it out to me. At first I thought Takara was pulling a Hot Toys Murder Prime. I've never been more glad to be proven wrong. I'm usually split on the episode-specific gimmicks but all of this looks awesome so far. Take my 500 dollahs already.

    Interesting that the BBTS preorder was pulled and is now "coming soon." Did the Hasbro embargo just transform into a Takara embargo?

    I’m aware, it looks like it might fit over his backpack as well, is what I meant.

    DARN If you look at the back of his right leg, there's a red thing poping out. Why did you have to ruin this with red plastic takara ;-;. I hope it had to be red, or I can paint over it, but why...

    Wow he really looks as if he just stepped out of the cartoon. That elbow though is super disappointing. That's just lazy.

    Looks great, still the price is not justified.

    Okay, since the jet pack was Sideswipe's in the show, is this pack going to be backwards compatible?
