    I didn’t notice that before... but I’ve been saying all along that the gray hands one is likely the one we’re getting. I think the blue hands one was their original design, but plans changed as Hasbro told us a NYCC... We shall see..

    The gray hands don’t bother me as much as the blue elbows..

    the blue elbows one i not likely to be what we are getting. we know that the ones shown off at sdcc were pretty much final, the blue elbows one has molding differences meaning it was likely an earlier model. ultimately theres too much variance to say for sure which we are getting till we see in box images, but i would not bank on the takara photos being accurate

    I'm playing the world's smallest violin.

    This is now how I'll always view Soundbarrier.

    True. I’m still 85% sure the final one will we get is the one showed at NYCC. Especially since the Hasbro team went out of their way to say the hands would be gray.

    thats my thinking as well, and honestly i dont think the grey hands really look bad, if they were going to alter anything it should be the grey leg panels

    Anyone who is going to buy the earth rise optimus, it appears to be a heavy remold of studio series 38

    Siege OP looks better than Earthrise OP.

    I don't display my figures from the side.

    Also, that isn't the final color scheme for Earthrise OP. The gray is a big turn off.

    we havent seen in box images so we dont know what the final color scheme is, there are 3 different product samples, all with different color schemes and 1 with different molding

    It does not appear that way at all. My favorite part is the circling of the opened chests, despite having nothing in common in how they open or even why they open. Most baffling has to be the circling of the back of the lower legs, there is so much nothing in common there. And then circling the incredibly different smokestacks gets a nod as well.

    Fair enough. If that doesn't change your mind, nothing will. I've always hated the kibble on Siege Prime, but, to each their own. Siege Prime is still a great toy.

    Maybe it helps that I enjoy adding paint to my figures?

    I could easily live with that version.
