    Well there's a pseudo look at Blastoff for u CW/UW fans. Glad they did the right thing and made a new mold.

    I'm beginning to see the drawback of Vortex having four blades. Other than that, this B&W pic is still way too small to pass judgement.

    Looks like Vortex's cockpit is remolded too? It looks pretty elongated in the pic.

    Nice. Brand new Blast-Off mold. Takara is just beating Hasbro into the ground.

    Looks like UW Bruticus has a darker chest shield - so I think we can say Takara are going for G1 cartoon colours over toy matching.

    Looks like the same cockpit to me. I see little reason to change it. My biggest concern is just how dark Bruticus' head appears. Please tell me Takara isn't going for the same black head as Hasbro.

    Curious, Skids doesn't have the pink lines - either it's a prelim or they're using the Hasbro pic.

    I wouldn't bother speculating the Bruticus colors from these pics. It's probably just the Hasbro one with the Takara exclusive prototype parts spliced on like Defensor and Devastator early pics were.

    Hyper Surge Optimus is outlandishly and hilariously expensive.

    If it was the hasbro one the chest wouldnt be so dark.

    Feeling justified in skipping UW Bruticus. I need toy colours for this guy.

    It's been painful holding out for the unite warriors Bruticus, but that blast-off and four-rotor vortex may be worth it!

    And out of all of this i'm more excited for a giant RID Breastmaster Optimus than Blast-Off.

    Lol

    Here's another thing I noticed: mismatched feet! Why didn't Takara use a grey foot for Bruticus?

    Very happy to see that Takara Jetstorm, Slipstream, Divebomb and AirRazor are getting released separately!
