I doubt BBTS will be touching this with a 10-foot poll. They're staying well clear of things that look 100% like a Hasbro character. As for TFSource, I'm not sure. One would think they'd be carrying it by now if they had plans to do so.

CapturedPrey may be the only North American shop to carry this.

Thanks for the clarification. I didn't realize that was the reasoning for BBTS lack of support for this figure. Makes sense.

No problem. BBTS and Hasbro have gotten very close over the last few years with BBTS Official Transformers exclusives. I don't think they want to jeopardize that.

Damn. Well there goes another 160 bucks. Kinda glad I am in for the second run. Hopefully they correct any early issues.
Anyone know what they plan on doing with the hose?

Is this a final produced product or just a painted prototype?? If this is just a painted prototype, I'm assuming the purple might be different on the final?

I just say that because I think the grape purple they used is a little off from the cartoon magenta purple.

I think they did a great job, and the transformation is perfect, I don't know how that could be topped. That said with all the MP goodness from Takara right now, I'm excited for an official release...

Thansk for the video. Glad the reviewer is impressed with the quality. The robot mode is uncanny, and he is MP size; but I don't get the Masterpiece impression with the toy.

Two complaints - I don't like how there is space between the arms in the alt mode. And his robot mode is a little on the blocky looking side. Shockwave had more curvature.

that, along with the size, and the colour combine to mean I won't be getting this. kind of a shame, as Optibotimus' comments on the quality of it make me want it. I do think he's just a bit too bright of a purple though, and he'll tower over all my other figures. Being as tall as Grimlock is fine, but only if it's dino-mode Grimlock, and this guy would make the t-rex look like an emu. Not cool. If they ever do a Voyager or even Ultra sized one I'll be down for it, but he's just a little too large for my collection. FOC Shocky will have to do for now. I'll just keep pretending he's off in the distance.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

For everyone that is getting this or has already committed to this, are you guys ok with where the hose is and the size of it?
For some reason this is still bothering me quite a bit.
I'm still on the fence... but if this was coming out during some of the dryer months last year It would have already been brought.
