Massively mistransformed by the look of things, but otherwise....


Fellas, I need a change of pants.

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

I'm reading that with Roy's voice. Heck, I read everything you post in a laconic Irish accent.

WHY didn't they color him like SG Drift? I wanted to use him as SG Drift. What a wasted opportunity.

I'm digging this daily reveal bit. Knock Out is looking neat, and I dig the LSOTW torture device. icon-fire.gif

SO OKAY IT'S AVERAGE

Virtually every custom as good as the title suggests!

God, I hope he's REALLY mistransformed because otherwise this is a bit of a let-down.

I hope he's mis-transformed. Jeez, he looks kind of bad.

He is mistransformed. His stomach, at least. According to the images of him from BotCon, the sides of his abs fold back.

Also, that prod of his totally looks like the Scorpion-guy that Takara's Soundwave comes with.

Looks like his fenders need to tilt back further on his shouders, his "belt" needs to fold around his waist, and his windows need to fold down on his arms. Looks pretty good now, and I think he'll look great when properly transformed.
I have signatures disabled because they suck.

Boy - with a very little bit of paint that head could be turned into a pretty decent Terrorsaur.

And aren't his wheels supposed to be up higher by his shoulders too?

Also, his chest needs to not be photoshopped to look like someone smeared crap on it.

For comparison, I went and dug up some pics of the prototype shown in the BotCon slideshow:

Love that he comes with that cattle prod spear thing. I definitely didn't think he would, especially since I believe he only used it once on the show.

Boy are they're going to be any surprises as Toyfair this year? I mean we've seen a mockup of him before but they're revealing all the goods before I get there. icon-fire.gif

The surprises will be seeing the toys unphotoshopped and under normal lighting, and hopefully not mistransformed. icon-waspy.gif

Thanks, I was looking for that picture. For future reference do you know if the Skyquake picture is still around? I really hope his and Breakdowns toys get shown.

Yeah, but they may end up being hand painted samples that are not indicative of the final product (like silver eared Universe Sunstreaker or black faced Alternator Silverstreak). icon-fire.gif

So he's actually not that much mistransformed. Just fold back the stomach pieces and straighten his chest kibble.

Ouch. I was at least hoping that the windows folded over the forearms to help with that area of nothingness on the inside of the arms. And that the hood torso did...something to make that look less goofy.

He looks good so far, just needs to be transformed correctly is all.

I'm a little disappointed he doesn't have the large yellow semi-circular areas to either side of his head, those are my favorite parts of his robot mode.

Looks decent otherwise, face looks fantastic!

Takara Soundwave has a circular, multi-pronged weapon-mode Minicon.

This here has a u-shaped prod at the end of it. the Micron Booster snake looks more like Knockout's weapon than the scorpion does, which is based off of Soundwave's tentacle.

Don't go by that mock up picture anyway. Remember how different Armada Hot Shot ended up looking?
