The movie toy was a van
Hopefully they do something better
i think the hands is okay in the third picture but those feet tho..
I just received news that TW is being an ass.
They are changing normal version to earth mode only and Deluxe version to cybertronian mode only.
Essentially to buy get two modes, you need to buy both now.
This is so scummy especially when one of the main draw of this figure is that it comes with parts for both mode.
I hope there is mass cancellation now to send TW a message that such bullshit will not be tolerated.

Riiiiight...... I’m going to hold off on getting pissed off cause this seems rather OFF.
Hobby Shack is a local toy shop that sells a lot of 3rd party TF. They get their news straight from the supplier.
There were one of the first to open PO for the Fire Scorpion Bumblebee before anyone else did it.
That supplier very likely isn’t TW but someone else who gets it from TW. As to the later part, places like showz sometime put up preorders based off of 1 image so that means little to nothing.
I’m just saying this seems like a pointless change and not a very smart one this late into it. And given how late into the game it is, something seems off about TW doing this. Especially after they just a week back marketed something completely different.
This move makes no sense to me either. Sounds like a miscommunication or something lost in translation. Get two same figures for the sake of extra accessories? No company has really gone to that extent of scummy tactics. At least, not so blatantly. Takara re-released the ROTF optimus mold with multiple different tweaks and accessories each time.. but each release was 'different enough' I suppose (hated the ROTF optimus mold but ended up with two of them.)
I cannot believe the price... Has it been confirmed yet?
No,it's wrong.every version have earth mode and cybertronian mode
Didn't they say he wouldnt transform as he didn't in the movie?
That'd be cool. Options are always cool, especially with weaponry.
Speaking of which has any weapon storage been confirmed? Does any of it store on his back or on the alt mode somehow? I feel like that's becoming a lost art and it's sad to me (although the trade off is more accurate figures, which I guess is acceptable).
Weapon storage is only limited by the amount of tupperware or drawers you own.
A Burning Wallet.
^ I ended up with 15 of them...
Yeah, if this is true about Freedom Leader it’s going to totally piss off a lot of people, is extremely underhanded of TW and will ultimately hurt them in the long run bc it will severely cost them customer loyalty.
I just made an order for the Premium. 162.99 shipped.
For what you seemingly get at “MP” scale that’s quite a good price. Was that in USD?
Nice, so hopefully a little cheaper at base price in GBP for me. Expecting shipping to be a bit expensive as it always is.
What's with these tiny hands and overly massive feet lol.
