    The lower leg is doing a lot while seeming completely unnecessary

    soo much paint, and none on the hands........ I feel myself giving in.

    From what I can tell on seeing the truck bed, the wheels don't need to flip anymore, causing the original asymetrical peg hole to be set on the right side of bed. But upon having seen that hinge, from me searching through the video and you magically having a clear shot of the back, I don't understand why that hinge is still there, they could have just made the calves smooth like MP-44, TE-01, G1 Model, have it hinge inwards, flip the wheels into the middle, then close the calves onto then, giving us accurate legs. I hope a knock off company gives us an upgraded version.

    Well I don't like the unpainted hands, but I wouldn't care if they made another Chromedome. But then I've never subscribed to the one-and-done theory for Generations, everyone and anyone can always get another figure whenever Hasbro decides to do it.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I concede defeat. I will purchase... Still hoping we'll see Magna Convoy form Siege Voyager Prime.

    I just realized
    With all the hyperdetailing on WFC, and the butt wheels on Earthrise prime, its the perfect Studio OX mini-masterpiece, all it needs is the blue eyes and hands, and Hasbro will probably end up changing the hands, after all they're blue in the renders.

    I mean, I WILL buy it, but it still pisses me off, along with the grey bicep and the grey Combat Deck. It's just... WHY? If the back trailer door is blue, paint that bihh. As it is it's a Voyager with an EXTREMELY SIMPLE accessory.

    I'm at least hoping that the hands, in addition to being pinned, are on mushroom pegs for rotation so they're easy to swap out.

    At least doing it that way would give US the option of doing a relatively simple paintjob as opposed to a much more difficult paintjob or replacement of a pinned part

    The hands don't bother me at all. Now if there are replacement hands offered in an upgrade kit with Roller, I'd install them, but I wouldn't buy a kit just for blue hands. I'm just glad the eyes are toy yellow.

    I didnt notice at all when I saw the figure and it won't stop me from getting it if I ultimately choose to do so (I likely will). You can bet one of the 3p companies like Dr Wu or Shockwave Lab will make blue hands in any case.

    The poll should've included "yes, but I'll wait for it to drop to $30 during a sale like Shockwave."

    If a company is going to make the inner and rear sides blue, they might as well replace the entirty of the lower legs; give us SS-38's leg transformation, then make them G1 styled.

    No,....it doesn't bother me at all. I don't let little things like whatever color hands determine my purchase. To me if i want it I'm buying it no matter what. So to be picky like something like that nah,.......that's just not me.

    I want to believe but somehow I think Gail is setting people up for disappointment.

    Yeah, generic response with no actual knowledge of the situation.

    Blue hands that’s great news. I wonder, can the head be easily swapped with Siege (blue eyes version), as an option?
