    I treat this as a "what if?" one off. I wouldn't think of this as directly connected to the movies at all. Plus he looks different (and way better) than what ended up in the film.
    HE'S A BUILD A FIGURE??? FUCK NO! I'm very unhappy about this since I didn't plan on getting any of the other releases (except MAYBE BB if they fix the head). Not happy at all about this. They probably cut the number of people who will get this in half. Then in half again.
    I wouldn't see any of them as canon. They're too poorly thought out.
    Is there much care put into ANY of the concepts and ideas in the movies? Especially TLK? The first trilogy are the ones I consider canon, and even then if they retconned the stuff with the primes and the matrix from rotf I'd be totally OK with that.

    I don't know about you, but I can't seem to get Beyond Thunderdome.

    I normally hate this version of Starscream because i think it looks horrible but Toyworld did a good job with him

    If I remember the scene right it was when Anthony Hopkins was explaining to Walberg about how the Transformers had always been a part of our history, so that's like archive materials.

    their bulldog is $75, and he seems to be a bit smaller. so going off that, this guy is going to be around $80-85, which for that size is... well... not worth an mp price tag.

    He's also a "build-a-figure", so unless you can find one second hand to get two you'd need to buy all five of Toyworld's releases, twice.

    As I've said in this thread, a build-a-figure release is the hardest of passes for me which is a shame because this otherwise looks nice.

    I'm not getting all their other stuff for a BAF. BAF is BS. I can only hope that if enough people complain, they'll change it and make it a regular release. Unlike hastak these are small companies which can switch up their business strategies if need be (I hope).

    Considering that I collect Marvel Legends, he will probably cost $80, if you buy the BAF pieces loose.

    This is a really dumb model for TW.

    I wanted a Thanos figure so badly after Infinity War came out, but thanks to BAF I never gave them any of my money. This will likely happen here too.

    The three pack with the repainted Thanos is $40 on Amazon.

    I have two versions of vacation Thanos. Done. Bring on the armor.

    Yeah the BAF model is awful, really hope they just release the thing by itself. Not spending $350 on give other figures just for this (I'm sure there will be repaints but still, no).

    I've been checking Weibo daily for their update, and here they are, painted sample of Starscream!

    What do you think?

    Couple things I gathered from the comments:
    1. No waist swivel
    2. stand included

    AND another news: Pictures of painted sample of Bumblebee will be released by 28th!

    I tried to link the images directly from Weibo, but looks like it may not load correctly for everyone. So, I downloaded them and uploaded here... hope you all can see these. Let me know if this works.
