    I did a little looking, and Cliffjumper IS vastly different- almost day and night. Personally I prefer the FE mold for the limbs and the show accurate guns- actually I think the figure as a whole looks better to me.

    I can't really find a difference between the Bumblebees aside from having two blasters instead of one. The picture on the presentation slide looks a little foreshortened making his proportions look weird. And they mistransformed the NYCC figure on display to boot.

    Wheeljack is utterly full of win.

    Woah, what is THAT deluxe EVAC? The design looks properly good, decent articulation too by the look of it.. will have to keep an eye on that.

    No weapons?

    Is it just me or do NONE of the trilogy figures have weapons? is that just a displaying error or will they be sold weapon free? If so, none of them are for me.

    No, I'd imagine they'll have weapons, as do most Transformer toys. They'll probably just be repaints of past weapons though, Mech Tech or otherwise, which would explain why there was no need to show them.

    Is that first picture a new Bumblebee? (The picture with Prime Wheeljack) It looks a little different from the First Edition one. That, or the one in the picture is mistransformed.

    Him and the Cliffjumper in the other picture are both new molds. It's more obvious on Cliff, but if you look closely at Bee there are too many differences for it to be misstransformed/posed oddly.

    Oh, okay. Thanks. But why did Hasbro give them new designs so soon? Bee's vehicle mode looks pretty much the same, and I'm assuming Cliff's will too. Bee doesn't even look all that different. Cliffjumper too, for that matter.

    I think these are the real Prime molds. And the others we've been shown are the Generations molds.

    Until I see a picture of the actual figure, I'm gonna go with my gut and say that's just a terrible photo. After all, wouldn't they displayed the new version in the case with the others if it actually was significantly different?

    But shadow isn't a real insider he is a troll. So what if he knew abotu the Movie styled G1 Wheeljack with new head, anyone could guess that. He said there would be new reveals and all we got were repaints blah blah blah ect ect


    Damn I wish I knew what Shadow knew. People get too damn jealous of insiders.
