    I very rarely have my bots in alt mode so i really dont care about which alt mode looks better. And when I say 'clean' I do not mean the sculpt, I know what you mean and yeah i do like the detail on arkose (probably because he's from back in the day where everyone was not going for that ultra toon look), what i mean by clean is that he does not have as much kibble as arkose, though tbh I do prefer X transbots headsculpt

    That's fair. Arkose does have quite a backpack. FT's also has that no-neck Barney Rubble look, which is accurate to the cartoon but I don't like it.

    A year is nothing in the scheme of things. Buy what you like and don’t settle. To me, XTB’s looks better and is already available so no brainer.

    I'm going to pick up Arkose. Beachcomber is one of my least favorite characters, and Arkose is good enough to cross him off the list. Besides, I just don't trust Fans Toys anymore. They make pretty robots, but lately those pretty robots come with articulation issues and pain-in-the-ass transformations. I like to handle my figures, and Phoenix was probably the last FT release I didn't hate handling.

    I can agree with you there... I LOVE the way my FT cyclonus looks ... but heck if I don't treat him like a bloody fragile verse out of fear of scratching the paint.

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!

    Yes, I'm very happy! I love it. My little G2 MP collection grows ever so slightly larger. This was the best thing to wake up to this morning. I'm glad this will exist, and even happier that I won't have to jump through hoops to get it too.

    No pictures of the G2 version with the facemask? That's odd.

    Pre-ordered with swiftness.

    For those who have the original deco, are there any parts you think would be potential problems for the metallic paint job on this G2 one?

    (I'm assuming it's paint)

    I bought one of the unboxed versions a while ago when this was all but sold out. I wonder if the reissue will mean I can get the golden Lagoon hand as a spare part? This was missing from the unboxed version, one of the concessions
