    Not big into the G2 color schemes, but this piece looks great and so do the stunticons.

    Looking forward to my G2 version @ibot is there somewhere we can see In detail the differences between the final decision version and the others? I have the 1st edition and it's a great figure but would potentially upgrade if this new version is worth it.

    For those who don't own this, its a great figure, mine is still standing proud but the roll bar cage and heels are annoying me a little on mine.

    I went with the G2 Arkose, because 1) i wanted to still be able to get the FT version later and keep my Arkose (beahcomber is one of my favorite minibots, so i want both) 2) It didnt have any white parts, so i thought ok, no yellowing in the future, great, lets try it.

    But... damn, i am liking the new pics of the regular color beachcomber ALOT, and especially if white parts are actually painted parts...

    Will he still come with all the birds? Because that’s what I’m mostly concerned about now that everything else looks awesome.

    Nice, would like to hear more about what this means:

    "embarrassing transformation step cancellations improvement"

    Is this referring to the backpack?

    1) Coming out soon then?

    2) Does the G2 version have the improvements like the shortened spurs, easier transformation, and tightened joints?

    I really want this, but I can't justify replacing my version 1 simply to have one that transforms better. My justification.... since I initially transformed Arkose (and had to have the top half of his torso replaced due to breakage) I've not touched him. He looks great on a shelf with my other minibots. So, in essence he's become a statue. No reason to pay another $80 just to have a version that can more easily go back and forth via transformation when I doubt I'll get around to it.

    Still no G1 accurate gun and miss matched blue parts?

    It looks good but I would be curious to know about the changes. I feel like that heel bar was shortened but I can't tell. That was the other complaint I had with this mold.
