I kinda like Fire Guts Sentinel Prime TBH. Though, I think the gray would have looked better as black.

@  Boomhauer : (28 July 2016 - 08:36 AM)

I would've been fine with the Bayformers 3 Sentinel colors, he looked slick.

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 July 2016 - 08:33 AM)

Same as Animated Sentinel Prime then, I bet he's a Functionist fundamentalist too!

@  Rycochet : (28 July 2016 - 08:07 AM)

Sentinel Prime's colour scheme is awful, they should have painted him in his animated deco, comics be damned.

@  Dracula : (28 July 2016 - 07:38 AM)

He's also orange

@  Paladin : (28 July 2016 - 07:23 AM)

kinda not enjoying my TR Sentinel Prime now that someone summed up his personality as "Make Cybertron Great Again."

@  OrionPax44 : (27 July 2016 - 04:51 PM)

Sounds pretty kinky.

Sadly no orchestra for me, but we did have the TFA clip as well.

@  ChessPieceFace : (27 July 2016 - 12:17 PM)

I saw Weird Al at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, playing with a full orchestra. It was pretty special. And yes, Dare To Be Stupid! With an introductory video clip from TFA, no less.

@  Vexwing : (27 July 2016 - 11:33 AM)

Got to see Weird Al perform Dare to be Stupid in his set last night! That was a nice surprise.

TMW you see a bunch of people have liked something you posted while you were away, and you're like "what did I even say?!"

@  Bass X0 : (26 July 2016 - 05:26 PM)

Regarding MTMTE#55 being released early in some places, its okay to discuss the contents of the issue as long as spoilers are kept within the thread. I refuse to read discussion threads of comics I have yet to read to avoid being spoiled. I also find it pointless to go into a discussion thread and expect to not be spoiled if you have yet to read the issue (unless you don't care).

@  Locoman : (25 July 2016 - 07:16 PM)

My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

Looks nice to me, but nothing will top Razorclaw. The use of yellow eyes is nice.

I would actually buy that. Still, I'd prefer a new mold for Leo Prime.

Even though I already have Leobreaker, Razorclaw, and Lio Convoy, the toy looks far more attractive in this deco and I'd probably be pretty tempted to buy it. If it is real though, I can't help but feel it's a pretty redundant release. Though the gold waist parts and tail remind me an awful lot of Leobreaker, making me slightly suspicious, a lot of the rest of the toy looks like actual plastic colors that the mold hasn't been done in so I'm not convinced it's a custom.

I don't see anything that explicitly makes it look like a custom. The colors break down like they should on that mold, and zooming in I don't see any evidence of paint. The apparently molded in gold head flap doesn't perfectly match the painted mane, which wouldn't make sense if they were painted by hand.

The weird gold midsection seems like a high price to pay for a tail/whip that matches the Legends toy. I'm not compelled to rebuy this mold.

Very nice. I've always found the primary colors of Lio Convoy to be quite striking, and they translate well to this mold. If this does see release, I'd be all over it in a heartbeat. The gold midsection is a bit unfortunate, but a little paint of my own will fix that just fine.

I'm very excited for this one.

looks like the leo prime head with some parts swapped from leobreaker. the claws, midsection, and tail are leobreaker's. this has to be a custom

but i'd totally buy this repaint. i wanted a lio convoy, but he was only in the legends class and then they went with that gawdy prime color scheme for leo prime, even though the bio referenced lio convoy

It's kind of weird that they'd go to the trouble of only painting some of the plastic (and flawlessly, giving it the appearance of unpainted plastic) over in white. Why leave parts of it uncustomized?

I think the bigger incentive is matching Lio Convoy's gold tail.

Wow, that's definitely more in line with what I wanted from the first release (Which I skipped, and then never saw again) to look like. Definitely would be worth my while, despite having Razorclaw (Soon!) and the two 'Breakers, for yet another unique head sculpt alone.

Not to mention the use of the Autobot symbol as opposed to the Maximal symbol.

So either this is offical, or it has to be a "Logically marketable" custom.
