    How the heck do the back cannons work? Also the front bumper is clean and covers the fists so I'm curious if that piece folds behind the shoulders.

    I think they have their own armature between the wings and central back block. And personally, I hope the bumper is removable. Fist bumper is accurate to the show

    Where does the front bumper even come from? It's probably the render not showing any seams but it looks like a single piece

    It could be yes. Looking at the shoulders closely there seems to be a white rectangle on the back, i can't check the original toy right now but it could be that too

    You're totally right. You can see the little transition piece below the grill that hinges out between modes. The render just makes it look like one piece. You can see that as well.in the rest of the cab looking like one large block, with no noticeable seems

    I was expecting to reluctantly pass on this because of the price. I have a hard time believing the release price would be as low as 100 usd, but if that’s accurate, I think I can swing it.

    Keep in mind that's just the China price, not taking account all the shipping costs it'll take to get to us.

    The Jinbao Devastator upgrade kit said it was 60 yuan (8 bucks) but it's actually 25 bucks for us.

    I have no reason to get this version, but I'll buy a repaint to repurpose as a different character.

    The lack of the Mud that the Hasbro Release is sadled with makes me want this as I loved the original.

    Hard pass.  The original is perfect as it is, especially for the cost of some small asthetic changes.

    Nah, already got a Nova. It depends on what colors they use. I like the sculpt, I just don't need/want Cybertron Optimus since his colors are too G1.
