    Maybe this one is coming but already have the FT and a pre order for the 2.0. I’d much rather see punch/counter punch, runabout runamuck springer and the protectabots be around the corner

    At the risk of sounding like an ungrateful dick...

    If we're getting perfect IDW head sculpts he should come with a sniper rifle to complete the look.

    But this looks amazing.

    If they bring this to market at $180 or less w/ good QC they'll shut a lot of mouths.

    Yeah this looks like it’s ready to ship right?? Wouldn’t it be great if they got it released before the “F over your” FansToys version even ships? :D  Must at least have a preorder for it before then how about it @ibot ??

    Agreed. FT loves to play the " Hey, our version is coming!" game. It would be fun to see XTB reply w/ "Well, our version is actually here."

    Really not sold on the face. Looks vapid rather than smart.

    More excited for the car bot announcements as XTB tend to do those better than other stuff.

    I agree. Not trying to hate here, but his expressions look pretty derpy.

    ;) 

    Looks better than FT to me and those accessories are awesome. Surprised there's no pencil though.

    This looks amazing, but it barely looks different from Tesla 2.0...dare I say this is the most similar any XTB figure has ever looked to a FT figure.

    Nailing it with the accessories as usual, though. But man, I really wish this'd been Elita One or Devcon or a new Hot Rod or that secret Ultra Magnus that apparently exists but will also apparently take an infinite amount of years as more and more figures are announced before him.

    Without accessories they could have sold this for much less than Tesla 2.0 - and would have won the race against FT. This way it will cost just as much and nobody will win. And there's always the fear of major XTB problems...

    Small head much? I thought Perceptor was supposed to be the big brain of the Autobots?

    accessories are pretty awesome tho.

    If I collected photos, I'd be really excited about this. It looks great.
