    Head, hook hand, shiny blue paint apps, certain pieces like the tail being black instead of grey.
    The blue plastic seems to be slightly darker as well.

    The full break down of differences is as follows:
    • A new head that is much more accurate to the original Thundertron design, though has an eyepatch for some reason.
    • The coat peg hook hand.
    • Slightly different blue
    • Gold instead of copper highlights
    • Darker grey
    • Tail, peg leg, and outer toes all an even darker gunmetal grey (I think the sword is also in this colour but hard to tell from the photos)

    Seen what they have done here i think i will cancel my vector prime pre order, must probably one of the coming leaders is vector prime rettoled to be more accurate with a safeguard and maybe a jolt

    I just found out what kind of rock Calcitron is supposed to be: blue calcite. Never even heard of it until today. I guess Transformers can be educational.

    I like how Calcitron's head makes him kinda looks like ROTF Nightbeat\Laserbeak (or Delaserbendour for my fellow Vangelus Evangelicals), I have a huge soft spot for the scout class figures of that era. Also, with a name like that you never forget to take your calcium supplements.

    Has anyone made the joke that between the calcium themed pirate and the creature with echolocation we've got Bone Thug & Harmony feat. Thundertron?

    He has a hook hand and a head that's more accurate than his original release.

    The new one has the wrong head. The regular retail toy has the head intended for the body.

    The Walmart exclusive puts the version on the right's head on the version on the left's body.

    If you want the correct head, just get the normal retail one.

    I thought this thundertron would of had a hideous or brilliant color scheme, not the retail release but some parts are black now. Its not even a complete black repaint. I should have waited :/ I don't like the cyberdwarf-like head the retail release had so this a plus for anyone who didn't want that.

    I like it. Just not enough to rush and get it. I see it on a shelf? Sure, even better at clearance.

    The new head looks good. Looks more like the TFPrime version.
    Not impressed by the “hook’ hand though. Looks more like the handle to an umbrella than a hook.
    The little bat will look neat perched on the shoulder.
    Not interested in the rock dude.

    He acts as if Takara isn't guilty of the same.
