    Interesting, seems more G1isch.
    I'm thinking about starting a TF pirate shelf with Thundertron, Cannonball and these guys are a must on that shelf.

    Yeah, TFC has some excellent limbs, but that Snaptrap torso/waist/head needed to be more G1 for me to buy :)

    I like the less-busy design. As long as it still scrambles I'm interested. If it's in BW2 colors I'm all in!

    Waist is a bit on the thin side which might cause problems (wide A stance pose), but I love the cleaner style. Though it seems that Tentakil is shunned yet again? Those tentacles must be a total b*tch to make :p

    Their Snaptrap appears to be better, but otherwise I am liking TFC.

    This is interesting. I'm definitely liking the proportions more on the silhouette, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut it's just a silhouette so can't put too much stock into it yet.

    From the silhouette and the lineart, the Styling reminds me of UT Warlord

    For sure, but it'd be nice if companies would announce these things before I'm halfway through another TFC combiner...

    I'm looking forward to getting the other members of the team - Mickey Dolenz, Mike Nesmith and Peter Tork. Wonder what their combined form could be called?

    Hmm, not too keen on the narrow waist of the combiner torso, and the exaggerated A-stance look, but that Snaptrap looks better than TFC's.
    Not sure about pre-ordering from an unknown 3P though, especially after the farce that was Omnigonix, and the ongoing possible farce of T'n'R Hova.
    Will wait on the sidelines with this one. Hopefully all of TFC's will be out before this set, so I can decide if I want a better Seacon team. If it's not full scramble-city with weapon modes, then I ain't interested.

    Based on the combined silhouettes, TFC's flows better from the waist down to the knees. But need to see detail on VT's to get a better feel.

    I dislike any modern combiner whose look just screams "bigger guy standing on top of 2 smaller guys" like a cheerleader pyramid. This looks to be about the most extreme example of that I've seen in a 3P combiner. There is NO sense of integration/transformation to the torso bot. It's purely "Snaptrap, with his arms folded back, standing on top of 2 limb-bots". I expect much more than that nowadays.
