    I hope they give his younger mouthless face as an extra head

    I just think it looks cooler and I don’t like the idea of transformers getting old

    I'm okay with it if it looks cool ya know? For example UT Dragoon looks like he has a beard to me which I think looks good on him. A badass knight with a beard. Works okay with Bayverse Hound too. Although that is mostly because without he looks off.

    Yeaaaah even when accounting for TFS's insanely inflated prices, I'm guessing this guy is gonna land around at LEAST $175-200 at places like showz. And for that reason, I'm out.

    Just saw the preorder prices and yikes, I'm not seeing where the 200 bucks comes from. Hopefully someone can get it and see how the combination with Prime works but unless I see a price drop, I might be out too.

    I got the last one at TFSource, and although I baulked at the price, I hadn't found it anywhere else and didn't want to miss out whilst 'hoping' that it would later appear somewhere else.
    I guess that is where they have us over a barrel. Prices go up because unlike a few years ago demand for 3rd party is becoming ever greater than supply.

    $199 is even more expensive than their standard F01 and F09 Optimus. I know it includes Starscream body but F09 is bigger and also has plenty of accessories. Even the $135 Starscream is also quite pricey for their size.
    $120-140 Jetfire and $90-100 Starscream was what I expected after collecting Bee and Bulldog.

    It seems to be a smart (yet annoying) move by TW. They release normal version with Starscream parts, and then repainted versions without those extras but even more expensive.
    So I just don't think it's possible for any repaint of these to be cheaper.

    Until there are some discount or I earn a huge project, I'm also out and not getting anything else even Barricade and Hot rod.

    That image of this guy combined with Optimus has so much Kantai Collection/Azure Lane vibes.
