    No, because then I'd have to replace my original.

    Seriously, though, they should at least make the updated faces available to the original buyers.

    With these repaints, I can only hope they're trying to fund R&D/production for multiple figures and they'll be revealing a prototype for R-04 (Hopefully a carbot) by the weekend.

    I think I've seen way too much Bumblebee. I'd rather that they tackle another character with a humanoid profile, like sentinel prime. That will really look amazing

    I'm thinking it'll be one of the remaining AoE cast members or TLK Barricade; the spearheads behind UT seem to have a soft spot for post-DOTM Bayverse. All the important characters from the reboot are getting at least one 3P figure already, so they may not feel "obligated" to do one. Hoping for Crosshairs, my bet is him or Drift.

    Ooh Black Dragoon would be dope! With red and orange highlights almost like he's made of lava :D 
    Sentinel Prime would be my DREAM for a 3P company to do. I mean, it would be my dream for ANYONE to do him, aside from Prime1 Studios cause theirs is a statue that doesn't move and also costs more than $1000 :(  More likely they'll do this:
    Yeah assuming they're sticking to aoe/tlk, my hope is for a mercedes Drift or TLK Barricade. I'd even love for them to take another stab at Lockdown (with better proportions and better molded detail) but it'd probably be better for them to move on to other characters first.

    Actually hope that’s true, it’s just that that unknown bumblebee figure seems like it’s got stuff characteristic of UT

    So I've been thinking of all the different repaints of this figure and made a few digi bashes of them. I thought I'd share them here. I put them in the spoiler tag since there's quite a few.
    20191019_095630.jpg
    Orginal and a more true Shattered Glass

    20191019_095802.jpg
    Ultra Magnus and Sleep mode

    20191019_095721.jpg
    Green "Bape version" and Red "Bape version"

    20191019_104622.jpg
    Rodimus Prime w/ slight head retool and Black and green Prime. (I mostly thought that green on black looked cool. )

    20191019_095924.jpg
    "Diaclone blue" version and color inverted version.

    Feel free to share any thoughts on them.

    I think that a Silver Knight version would be really cool.

    Cool! My favorites are the magnus repaint, sleep mode, and the "red bape" repaint. Magnus colors look good but I'd have the silver bits be very bright silver to complement the white, with some dark silver as accents. Sleep mode would really just be "crashed on Cybertron" version for me and I'd probably add a shitload of battle damage myself and it'd be awesome. "Red bape" really just looks like G1 colors, which I'm OK with. I'm not a fan of the green ones but that's just cause green transformers are a hard sell for me in general (unless it's a military-style character). I'd love to see some of these repaints with different flame patterns or maybe even with no flames. Maybe camo patterns or more ancient cybertronian symbols or even starscream-style tattoos?

    Gosh, with the new headsculpt he feels brand new. I can't wait to get mine!

    So I got my Destroyer and I LOVE the new headsculpt! But I decided to get to the main purpose of getting this figure (with minor damage off ebay for only $70!), which was to do my heavy battle damage nemesis tool! I'm about 70% done but let me know what you guys think so far! I'm definitely gonna make a radicons thread for this one and I'll update when I've done it if anyone wants to know more details about the process. It involved dremels, knives and fire :D

    Man, he looks like a damned soul that’s crawled out of hell, I can’t wait to see how he’ll turn out. I’m guessing some more defensive wounds on the arms, maybe dirt stains? Who has he been fighting and where?

    Radicons thread created! I welcome all feedback and opinions! Thanks for looking!

    Haha thanks! I'm sort of going for a "crash landed on cybertron" look, which is a combination of the wounds from his fight with Lockdown and also being through hell getting to cybertron, AND crash-landing. But since he's not blue and red, maybe he can be a Nemesis Prime that has killed every Autobot in the darkest timeline or something?

    My only gripes with the figure are the detailing and ankles. If they got someone like Black Apple to work on a V2, it could have painting and sculpting on par with Knight Orion, and the solidity of Commander Thunder Leader. It'll probably never happen, but a guy can dream
