Hmm, who is that?
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

It's going to be Weirdwolf. Someone who isn't on a cellphone can post pics of the concept art

Ask and you shall receive. (Sorry, I should have seen this in the instructions and started this thread days ago...)

I adjusted the brightness and contrast to the max.

[Edit] Whoops, sorry. I misunderstood what Mkall was saying...
So, when considering the merits of joining Va'al or Burn, I have to say that Va'al's obsession with Alpha Bravo is so awesome in its own right that it all but made the decision easy.

But, Burn has a stinky Whirl...

Cant wait for Weirdwolf !!! Always felt Botcon Weirdwolf was always bit too Hasbro-ish to be in a classics collection. Im gonna have to make a G3 shelf to justify all these Botcon and Hasbro repaints that are being replaced by proper 3rd party figures.

Looks like a lot of changes have been made since that concept-art pic... most notably the detailing and a smaller head. Looks really good so far... just hope the shoulder articulation doesn't suck as bad as Code's (which sadly, it looks like it might).

Just curious why you think the shoulder articulation on Chromedome sucks ? I dont have him in hand yet, but after watching a couple reviews I dont see the issue. Sure he cant flap his arms like a chicken or do a cheerleader split, but what meaningful pose could those missing joints be used to make if he had them ?

He's got scopes on his rifles. Yet, there are very few poses where he can look good peering through the scope. If his arms could go out to the side, we could turn his head and look down the scope. Just one example...

Many dynamic poses can't be done without this articulation. For example, he can't even shoot on his side. The legs aren't as bad but yeah, the arms clearly lacks articulations and the figure isn't perfect, even if it's good overall.
