    Don was my favorite modern TF artist, but there have been some greats since then like Roche, Milne, Cahill, etc. If you have never given them a chance you really should. Sorry for derailing the thread guys:)

    You can't tell me this isn't an updated version of Machine Wars Soundwave/G1 Predator Stalker. Love this!

    Love the engineering! But I'll wait patiently for the Doubledealer version.

    I don\'t think I\'ll double dip -- I have the awesome camo version -- but I\'m glad this excellent mold is getting some more love, and I\'m glad that anybody who missed out on the earlier versions (or who prefers this accessory set) will be able to snag this.

    I wonder if TFC will make the upgrades available separately for early adopters? I hope so; THAT I would buy. I\'d love a camo deco of this set, and the fact that it forms an independent missile base gives you even more display options.

    Have the camo version and will stick with that one. It's already a surplus purchase (I can't put him anywhere in my collection, but he just looks too good and is as good as he looks), so definitely not getting this new version.

    Only way they can sway me if it's a character that's special for me. But then, there's no character that's special (enough) to me that works with this mould. (Okay, Animated Roadbuster Magnus, but that's why I bought the camo version and it doesn't work with the new version.)

    Look at this.

    Look at this wrong ass opinion.

    Look at this dude who thinks Pat Lee could draw his way out of a paper bag without bankrupting the company that made it.

    Look at this person who thinks every artist since Pat Lee other than Don was a failure, despite Pat Lee being a dumpster fire man.

    You're a bad person and you should feel bad.

    Lol. Pat Lee brought the idea of transformers back after it lay dormant. Are u one of the garbage artists? No? Then crawl back into your basement bedroom and ask ur ma to bring u down a sandwich and shoosh, adults are talking

    Son, if you believe that crap you just spewed, you don't know shit about Transformers, you don't know shit about the franchise's history, and you don't know shit about art.

    Along with how Pat Lee didn't know shit about paying his employees.

    He sure knew how to buy a Porsche before declaring company bankruptcy, though.

    I think he meant that Pat Leee is an okay artist. Which he is. He's just a bastardised version of a human being in all other aspects of life. He can draw bots, not much else.

    Anyone know what colors this guy's expected to be in? I don't know anything about the character he's referencing, but I'll be darned if he doesn't look awesome.

    I find it super weird that TF was created under cold war tensions, and yet nothing's ever done anything with that except for I guess Dark of the moon.

    Son? I'm probably old enough to be your dad(wait...you're not good looking with broad shoulders are you? Lol). And I said nothing about his ability to run DW. He is the reason most other artists draw the way they do in tf. We're off topic. Have a nice day
