Yea I'm gonna unironically display him exactly as he is in these pictures.
Have there been any indication of color variations? I am not crazy with the Cell blue color.
ShowZ is reliable and has the cheapest total price so far (they're also including the head while other stores are selling it separately).
Pre-orders have always been up at different resellers.
No indication yet
This is so confusing is the head included? I've heard that it's not included for some retailers like tfexpress and actionrobo. It's included right? I mean there's no way they're going to put it in a separate packaging right?
Read the last 10 pages. It's all right here
It is included for sure if you order from Showzstore as they confirm it twice. Other sites are unknown as some seem to be trying to sell it separately.
yeah I ended up pre-
ordering from actionrobo and they said I'll only get the figure as pictured, which is weird. If the head is packed separately it's likely they'll sell it separately somehow? but if it's packed with the figure, that would be great as they'd have no reason to sell the figure separately.
He said he was wanting head. Ain't no way he's looking for marriage in that case!
I'll see myself out...
TFS-Express list the body and "accessories" as two distinct listings. These will be packaged separately. ShowZ is definitely selling them together though.
When comparing prices, you need to weigh up whether there's a figure and accessories or a figure plus accessories.
As I understand it:
Zeta are packaging heads and bodies completely separately to get past the hastak issue (though why there is one with such a big size difference beats me), and sellers are being told to sell separately. They have even produced different photos with no head on the robots and stores probably should not be displaying photos of the head attached. There also appear to be 2 additional alt mode mouth sections that can be attached to either mode, but ive no idea if/where the ring/wings will be included.
They are shipping to sellers at the same time.
I dont believe this has anything whatsoever to do with reputable sellers making 'extra' money off of the head, and if it allows the figures release Im happy.
Not sure what, if anything, they will do where stores like showz try to sell together, combining the price into 1 unit, against zetas instructions.
TFS (and probably others) have listed 2 items, so you can preorder together (and have shipped together) on the same order. In the uk this amounts to a total of £234.98 plus £6.50 shipping.
Edit: The only thing I would be weary of is consumers purchasing heads to sell on marked up after, so would only purchase from places like TFS which have both parts preorderable together.
I was interested in some comps. I did not see any on here so I thought others may be interested as well...

If anyone has a photo of what Studio Cell looks with his head and wings please post.
Conclusion: Both Haslab and Cell are too light a color.
HasLabs to me shit the bed when they decided to keep their Unicron yellow, which is baffling seeing this was marketed to adults.
Otherwise on Cell's, they need to darker the gray and orange a bit more but at least as is, if that's the final, it will still be a step up over HasLabs and be less of a giant brick needing a stand.
Wish they went with a more grey than blue look. I never felt I was looking at blues when I watched the animated movie. It was just all steel coloured with maybe different shades and maybe slight tinged towards being colder blueish grey but yeah. Never straight up blues.
Still, this Cell is not bad in colouration, just prefer just a little less colour, so a little more desaturation.
I'm agreeing that the colors are off. Need to be more orange-ish, and grayer where the gray is.
I'd prefer it to be closer to the movie colors.
I was hoping for colors more like this:
Yup, that gets my legally binding interwebs vote.
I dislike how dark his abs are.
