    It looks like you could leave it in the sun and it would melt, and I hear you lol I’d have preferred the solid white myself too. I’m still looking to see if I can own a complete original but all the ones on eBay are like £150 upwards. Crazy.

    He’s apparently coming in Earthrise, they briefly mentioned him as a potential voyager in wave 2/3.

    Yeah it is! I can’t remember exactly where it was from, but someone asked in one of the QnA’s at a conversation a few months ago, might have been the one where wave 5 was shown off actually.

    They didn’t directly say, but it was an indirect confirmation that it would be a shame to just do one of the Horrorcons

    TT never had superior paint options
    Brand unification is the best thing to happen to transformers
    Apeface looks amazing bought on sight

    Brand unification is a shitshow because now those of us who could afford the objectively more painted TT figures are relegated to buying the Hasbro options which are slightly better than they were before brand unification. Which is not hard, considering CW and POTP were completely creatively bankrupt lines.

    Plenty of room for a waist swivel on that large brick of a torso, just saying. And those stubby wings! Just seems low effort to me.

    Low effort. Worst phrase in this fandom. Next to lazy that is.

    Am I the only one that likes the fact that the teeth make it look like the jet mode is a flying sawshark?

    I love these pics, just dislike the subject of them. A lot of great angles and demonstration of the play of this figure. I especially love the decepticon headmaster beasts group shots.
    But, the figure itself is an easy pass for me.

    Ehh I think he could have had a waist swivel at least right under his lower abdomen, and I think that the wings look crappy because half of them sits on top of the block of robot. It doesn’t make him look very aerodynamic, even by Cybertronian standards! :)

    I know. But most of the Earthrise figures seem not to have the battle damage. If they hadn't brought him over to siege that might have been the case for him too.
    That's my only complaint though as far as I can see.
    They really went nuts spraying him with silver, but he looks really fun.
    The way time goes by at my age I'm getting a little hesitant saying things like "I can't wait" but I'll be sure to buy this guy as soon as he comes in stock at my e-tailer.

    Great, apart from those bloody-awful silver paint splodges.

    Yeah you’re right, then again I’d rather have him sooner he has always been a niche favourite of mine personally along with Snapdragon. I’m not too bothered about the battle damage myself really, but I understand for those that would like him without.

    I'll be super excited to eventually get this guy! He was always my fave of the two horrorcons and he looks great with the other headmasters! Will be interesting to see if they ever make a Snapdragon to go with him (which I'm sure will most likely happen).
    About the only complaint I have about him (and I realize it's nitpicky) is that his gorilla mouth is basically this full solid piece instead of being empty and hinged. Like his teeth are painted over this chunk of black plastic where the hollowness of a mouth should be. I guess at least it makes the teeth stand out, but I just find it kinda irksome when it's a beast mode character that looks like it should have an articulated mouth.
