You could be right. But Im gonna go off the fact that this image is missing the redish tint that you would get if you blasted the Hasbro version with excess light. This one seems to have a bluish tint instead. And if they go for the chrome like the other Takara FOC figures have, the mix of silver and purple paint would only lighten the purple. If not ill be sure to cancel my pre-order.
On the mini-con - I dont hate the little guys, but Im planning on using this as a classics Shockwave with the wings flipped down. Not as FOC/TF Prime or whatever Has/Tak intended this mold to be used for. No mini-cons needed for a classics shelf.
What will you use as his arm/hand cannon?
He comes with a cannon that can be used on either hand.
