I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I'm really mixed on this. Megaplex's whole shtick is that he looks more like Megatron than Megatron does. This fails at that most basic requirement of a Megaplex toy.

On the other hand, man do I freaking love those colors. Fantastic job there. I am one picture of the vehicle mode away from being completely sold on this.

One picture of the vehicle mode later and I am completely sold. That certainly looks like a Megaplex toy.

Yeah, that jet mode really makes it look like Megaplex instead of Dreadwing cosplaying as Megaplex.

The t-shirt design has of course Megaplex as the large figure with Skywarp and Thundercracker as the other two. The details are in the shoulders and leg wings. You also can somewhat make out the shoulder vents.

Yes, at first two of the figures were blacked out instead of just one. Thundercracker was un-blacked out once it was pointed out that he was clearly visible on the hat, apparently.

So we just gotta figure out who that last dude is.

EDIT: Not that it's going to be easy or possible -- Thundercracker's silhouette was not anywhere close to exact. The silhouette was way blockier and more generic.

Josh's unique (and awesome) style certainly does a bang up job of hiding the character choice when presented in silhouette fashion. The general blockiness of the design, the big block arm, and the triangular piece behind the head leads me to think Warpath repaint of some variety.

Though it's just as easily possible that it could be a Generations Kup repaint with the large block sticking out to the left being the rifle.

It could be anything, really. It's a very nondescript robot without any decipherable kibble. RTS Perceptor or even Universe Silverbolt would fall in that category.

The triangle behind the head and the large rifle would fit the Universe Silverbolt mold. You could somewhat argue the shape of the wings in there, however, you are correct. You just can't tell. There really should be a guess the Josh art game.

That's the thing. There probably isn't a triangle behind the head. As I mentioned above, the shapes aren't true to the final art. Let me reiterate, since you seem to be having trouble understanding: The silhouettes are different shapes than the final, unobscured art. The silhouette shapes are not diagnostic.

Also this is definitely not Josh art. It seems to be Yoshioka art, as he's been identified as this year's lithograph artist, also mentioned above, and he works in black and white a lot. Plus it looks like his.

It may just be me, but I keep looking at that silhouette and my mind keeps thinking of the Generations FOC Starscream figure.

Just to confirm, although it appears to have been settled already, the art on the shirt is by Hidetsugu Yoshioka.

And yes, it is awesome!
