    Untrue. You can see a lot of the greebly bits have been replaced with smooth panels. I see new chest, thighs, shins, gauntlets, opening hands, new face with larger eyes, none of which is in the renders on the preorder pages. I like how the null rays clip into the pauldrons as well.

    I kinda love how on the box-art Percy is like : D but on the figure itself he's just like: ._.

    I thought for sure they'd reveal Kingdom wave 4 and Star Saber at a bare minimum, but it's neat to see Perceptor unexpectedly. Does this mean the info that Star Saber's funding would have to be completed by the end of the month must have been wrong? It's ridiculous to give people less than half a month to commit to $200+.

    Perceptor looks good though, glad I didn't get the TR or Legends one for aftermarket prices. This one looks very similar but more refined. I like that they kept the artillery mode even though he didn't use it in the movie.

    I won't be getting Starscream but the throne does look good and the opening hands are a pleasant surprise. I know this won't happen, but if they're open to revisiting older molds and giving them opening hands, I'd absolutely love a Leader class SS86 or Legacy Megatron that combines the best aspects of the WFC versions (IMO it would be the torso and fusion cannon from ER and everything else from Siege), tweaks the mold a bit to give him opening hands with flaps to cover the gaps in his forearms and maybe stretch his torso out a little bit, and gives him a clean paint job and some extra accessories (like the little purple pistol) and blast effects. ER Prime deserves a Megatron of equal quality dammit.

    Preceptor looks nice, I will use that for his earth form and keep the titans returns version as his cybertronian mode.

    I was told unequivocally that coronation Starscream would be the same as the kingdom mold, so my disappointment in that fact has already been dealt with. I'm pleasantly surprised to see the remolded hands and the throne accessory though, I might end up buying this when it was initially a hard pass for me.

    I will probably skip on the sweep though, I can use the earlier smaller versions of scourge as sweeps

    Now that you mention it, yeah, there's a lot of additional stuff going on with that prototype.

    Also, the render's left knee is completely un-pegged. How did they mess that up? And with these renders on the box design and no window, the customer in the store will get a totally inaccurate impression of the mold.
    I guess that's why they say "PRDUCT MAY VARY"

    I feel like if you want to make your point, you should be using the HD renders rather than a blurry prototype…

    I'm also using what Evan, the designer holding the blurry prototype, said. The livestream is up for reply at the Pulse YouTube page, where I grabbed that screen cap. See for yourself!

    Coronation Starscream does look nice, and I like the articulated hands but I don’t feel the need to get it.

    Perceptor looks fantastic, I happily preordered it and two Sweeps.

    Again, Images are a lot quicker than watching livestreams. Not everyone has that much time.

    I thought TR Perceptor was pretty good but this one seems cool too.

    I don’t think we have to wait that long. The way things are heading I’m pretty sure the Mayans were off by 10 years.

    What in cinnamon-toast is that even supposed to mean? Selling out is the natural measure of success for a manufacturer.

    Alrighty; Let's have a look.

    Perceptor as his most perceptorish. Cool. Even has the telescope mode. (no, I can't call that a 'tank' in good conscience)
    Sweeps will be fun, it's a good mould. But a voyager army builder? Oof.
    Starscream is the earth one we have but with the coronation gear (I'm positive we'll see the cape again) and a throne any bot with his proportions can sit in. Not undesirable, but if that's not your bag a skip makes it an easy way to justify 2 or more sweeps.
