    Did anybody else notice that for the pictures of Springer, the Robot and car mode have yellow grills, but it looks like the helicopter mode has bage grill? It probably doesn\'t mean anything, but it\'s kinda odd.

    I wish I was hype about Springer but his arms and shoulders look...bad. I think his Siege version cleans up better. I was probably hoping for too much with this 86 release, but I think I would have taken an 1/1 upsize of the Siege version over the tweaked one we're getting.

    1/1 wouldn't be an upsize, it'd be the same size

    Deluxe prime definitely going to be very classics ultimate battle and robot masters adjacent almost like a mishmash of those with some missing link dna.

    Okay

    I come from the generation of mouth breathing toddlers obsessed with Bumblebee, and I am no different, I love the little bastard. Looking at him compared to the ER version, I definitely think this headsculpt is a marked improvement (I never liked it on that toy, it made him look old and the shape of the head is wrong) though it's still not a downsized mp 21 head (the best Bumblebee headsculpt). His feet are kinda huge but they seem to be taller than they are wide with will help with shelf space.

    The alt mode is... different. I love the licensed alt mode of the ER, but it very much sacrifices the transformation to get there. I'll have to get used to this new one.

    Overall, that's the vibe I have. "Getting used to it" is probably how this toy will be for me for a while. I'm sure it will be on the same level of quality as the other recent minibots (aka great), but I need to see it in hand. Definitely a purchase though.

    Trouble with it being Rodimus is that they stated when the figure was suggested everyone was like really, that character oh wow ok then.

    To me that suggests a character that has never been given its proper due, similar to Straxus.

    With the high res box photos we can see the forearm is red too, so maybe man of iron from siege Megatron?
    On second thought, it needs to be a leader class, so probably not

    I just don't see enough of a difference to get me to dump the Siege version.

    Bumblebee - Alt mode looks like ass. Pass.

    Decepticon Soldier - Maybe, if I can think of a good custom to turn it into.

    Skywarp - Intensely dislike the alt mode design. Pass.

    Springer - Maybe, doesn't really solve any of the issues with the original. Lots of good accessories, tho.

    Steeljaw - Fits in great with existing cassettes. Instant buy.

    Straxus -Maybe, already making a custom.


    Energon Galvatron - I'd rather have a full sized version. Pass.

    Core Rock - Just as stupid as all the other rocks. Pass.

    Quake - A retool of Skullgrin? Maybe-ish, sorta.

    Slipstream - Just as expected, it exactly what I didn't want for her. Pass.

    Deluxe Optimus
    - Could be neat. Maybe.

    Animated Motormaster - No use for this. Pass.

    Armada Galvatron - Don't need a second Megatron.

    Leader Soundwave - Maybe, but must come with new cassettes.

    That's a lot of red and very little green.
