    He also said he hated the Dinobots when asked about them around the time of the second movie. He says a lot of things. haha.

    Just gotta ask... was there ever a desire for this? If they can manage that kind of transformation with crazy old bot version of JF, they could've made this into a badass Octopunch. Or scrap this idea and make a badass Octopunch.

    It’s okay because G1 is perfect but bayverse sucks in every single aspect

    Could be some bits of it in there (I thought earlier some bits looked British) but Konig/Bayern class is still the main reference it looks like. The Warspite (well, the WWI one) is at least of the right general configuration (as-built).

    To me it looks like a warship and it looks great but to people who know a lot about warships might find the inaccuracies and stuff. Kinda like how I feel about inaccurately reconstructed prehistoric animals haha

    Mass Shifting means Weight Shifting as well. it doesn't mean, addition of weight or subtraction of weight. please explain where all the weight if the gigantic Super Dreadnought goes. again, the weight alone would be equal to about 20 Bayverse Devastators.

    Not even Optimus Prime is strong enough to carry that.

    I'm leaning to say the ship is based on the Bayern Since the Konig had 5 twin turrets.

    Not Quite.

    I mean I won't deny there are certain similarities. But I still don't think this is quite it.

    (Edited the original image by simply flipping the ship horizontally for better comparison)

    This is so unique that I have to get it. I don't have any boat Transformers and I love ROTF Jetifre, in fact Studio Series Jetfire was the last figure I got, a few weeks ago.

    I think at one point somewhere I remember reading somthing about the excess mass being shunted into some sort of hammerspace storage dimension, kinda like Optimus' trailer or gun when he's not using it in G1.

    @Jhund

    This should be added to the main post. They are the really large HD versions of the photos and they won't lead you to another place to view them. :thumb  (Just trying to be helpful)

    On behalf of the Dutch community I would like to request a Sinterklaas repaint of this figure. Including matching hat and staff. Thanks in advance :D

    Oh lawd, your one of those huh ?
    I think its obvious im not gonna buy it. But heres a news flash buddy: this is not a hobby store, its a discussion forum. I dont have to be a buyer to be here and discuss the figure. So how about you stop complaining about other peoples opinions and go get your pre-order in...

    I am one of those, actually. I don't give a flying font about historical accuracy, scale, character names, or even color choices on some occasions. I'm just here for toys.

    I going to paint a BB-36 USS Nevada, on mine when it arrives. Not super accurate as far as design goes, but it's the namesake of one of the first ships I served on.
