    Seems to be something coming. Over in the Tirador/Artfire thread we got a comment from Grifter Prime thinking we'd get a Virtus update this week. Plus I've seen others pointing out that Baba has changed his Virtus from "Pre-Order" to "toy will arrive, add to cart". Seems like at least one retailer thinks Virtus may be coming sooner rather than later.
    Curious to see if we get more info come Monday.

    That whole front chest/belly area looks really weird to me.

    Otherwise pretty good I guess.

    Colors are close enough for me. Next important issue, QC.

    Yeah, the colours look pretty good to me. I just want a closer look at the face sculpt, but I’ll probably grab this for heli mode

    The vents on the chest still look too shallow, but to be fair only one company has come close to getting these right and they've got other issues.

    Just two grabs specifically not from The Movie. Colors vary but those chest vents always looked pretty deep.

    Definitely better that past pictures. I do actually really like the translucent helicopter blade accessory, but I don't like the look of the torso too much. If I could get it cheap like a Black Friday sale for example maybe, but not full price.

    Great colors, but that torso is still a bit long. If I were to get this, it's probably going to be for the vehicle mode.

    Hopefully the dark green's not quite that dark. XTB always has to over-tweak something that wasn't wrong in the first place to make it just slightly wrong in the end. Overall it looks pretty good. That missile better end up the right color.

    Face might look a little weird. Is he supposed to have light up eyes or something? They look pretty dead.

    That’s what millions of years of war does to you. The horror, the horror.

    It looks good so far, still patiently waiting for reviews though. See @Tazman66gt, I can be positive.

    I think they are blue metallic, but they are recessed and we are looking down on them and no light is reflecting off them so they are darker than they will likely be in frontal views.

    And there it is. MUCH better.

    This along with the new Locke and their Perceptor is gonna make that Movie shelf look so much better.

    Dunno if they ever mentioned it but does it look like his forearm blasters might be there? They look like there might be an opening section.
