    Finally I am seeing more and more people speaking up about this. What is even more baffling is that his clones are all painted and he is not.

    Im happy to have him and I know he shares a lot with the Deadend mold and Blurr but Im having a blast with him,hes just as fun as Hardhead and hes way better then Highbrow who Im probably goinga take back to the store as Im just not enjoying him.

    Love going back forth between both modes and I dig how well Chrome Dome cleans up

    My biggest complaints for Chromedome are no paint on the titan master,bummer on that. I dont like the clear wheels and would preferred just black plastic,Im not sure if Takara is going the same route and just painting them? I also dont care for the gun seat and getting Blurr's gun again. I would of like to have seen 2 unique guns,please 3rd parties make some new guns for these TR guys. Other then that super happy with him,might even pick the Takara.

    My Chromedome arrived just now. Initial impression- fantastic in both modes. Doesn't roll in car mode as easily as some of the CW cars but the transformation is easy and a great design. I love the robot mode- enough of a cross between Marvel and IDW that will satisfy me as someone who loved both series of comics. And no little niggly 'things' for me to obsess about. Yet. :lol

    Did you guys know you can mount the guns to the roof like the G1 toy?
    Edit: Fixed the picture?

    Grabbed chromedome today and he's great! Out of the seven TR figs I have so far he has the best neck connection and most solid knee/hip joints on the headmaster.

    I just noticed this the other day! I think it's the best weapon storage he's got.

    Please forgive me if this has been asked and I missed it.

    But if one were so inclined, could one leave the head on Chromedome in vehicle mode? Would there be enough space, or enough space if some minor cutting were done, for the head to remain attached?

    His chest plate would get in the way unless you carved a giant square out of the center.

    I ditched the guns he came with and gave him two of the ones that came with Turrets and Manacle. Considering painting them red.

    My most hyped figure of wave 2 and I am dissapointed. He lacks creativity in many ways. I loved the dead end mold from cw and knew this guy was going to be 90% the same going in and I was fine with that at first. In hand I don't feel Chromedome. I get a mishmashed Frankenstein version of him.

    This. I mean this is like the 7th Dead End mold we have gotten. And I don't care if you call this a remold of Blurr, because he ain't. He's Dead End. I mean he doesn't even share the same transformation skeam as Blurr.

    Demonstratably shares parts with Blurr, just like Max does with Metroplex.

    Shares no parts with Deadend. You can't swap parts with him and Deadend, like you could Deadend/Prowl.

    What are you talking about "shares none of the transformation scheme with Blurr"? He basically identical from the waist down aside from the feet placement.

    but that is a very common transformation for car based figures in recent years.

    Got my Domey yesterday and I absolutely love him. I was less excited for him than Highbrow, but figured I'd get him since I have Rewind and man, am I glad I did. Out of the four Titans Return Deluxe Autobots, he's definitely second-favourite.

    Finally picked this guy up at Walgreens yesterday. When pics of this wave came out at the conventions, I always thought that Chromedome was the class of Wave 2.

    After getting his three Wavemates before him, while he's still a really good figure, Chromedome is easily the weakest of the bunch.

    The aesthetics of the CW Streetwise/Dead End/Prowl etc type engineering almost make Chromedome look short and stubby with child-like bodily proportions. That's my main gripe with this figure.

    Other than that, the headsculpt, the paint Deco, and the vehicle mode are all top notch. (I really dig the clear wheels and the Pontiac-looking front end in vehicle mode)
