Something deep inside me hopes that we get a Prowl from this. And according to someone who's gotten my attention (ever since he told us about Deluxe Starscream days before it was news), we're getting one in legion scale. Smokescreen retool?

Oh my, this is so exciting. While the mold isn't perfect (esp. on the backside of the robot) and the car bra is hideous, it's nonetheless very awesome that Smokey finally got his well-deserved unique mold. I am not convinced on some of the paint color choices, but I am sure some alcohol/paint or Repro labels can fix them. Can't wait to get him!!! :ic$:

Anyone know the Takara claims web address? I'd like to file my "you jerks owe me $40" claim asap. /facepalm

I like the AM Smokescreen, a lot actually, and he would be awesome with a set of Reprolabels but with this guy coming out, I think that's most likely a pipe dream (all but confirmed to me by Craig on another site). Clearly this is the superior Smokey... that said, the AM Smokey head is the better of the two AND the box is awesome. w00t!!

Ok, I'm buying this one. The head is a good mould, just bad painting. I can sort that out. Does anyone want the crappy armour when I get mine?

Just so we're clear, you meant this symbol is on the figure, right?

If you meant the prototype, then where is it? :???:


That's the one. Which is different from the one you showed further up, more unicorn-y.

Am I just adding to the confusion? :???:


As for Smokescreen, still unsure, even though the armour-on-off feature is a plus!
Might just focus on Starseekers and Predacons.

EDIT: After another look at the pictures, he may have moved onto the want list.

The dragon-looking one is the final. The "unicorn-y" one is the prototype.

Seeing the notched pieces at the bottom of Smokescreen's chest/waist compared with that Prowl pic... I'd put MONEY on seeing a Prowl repaint.

But I digress.

Bulkhead's new head sculpt isn't working for me. Too generic and not emotive enough after all we've seen in the cartoon. He's a vibrant, funny character - and you don't get anything out of the simple, generic goggle-facelump sculpt here.

If they wanted to deviate from the original head, they could have just gone with a spot on Roadbuster head to complete the homage.

Exactly. I'm not all that impressed with him. There's an awful lot of kibble on him. He's one hell of a cheatformer and shellformer. You mean to tell me they couldn't find a way to collapse that hood into his chest? Really?

I admit that the AM Smokescreen isn't perfect, but with a few mods, I think he'd look better and more accurate than this one. And the paints on the US Smokey? Bland. Just...bland. The stickers (I do hate them) really pop on the Japanese version. (Their only saving grace.)

I don't know. I feel like people got screwed all around when it came to Smokescreen. TakaraTomy apparently didn't get this mold for their use, at least right now, and the US version has a LOT of kibble on it. A lot.

I don't know what to think or do here. I'll probably buy it and do some parts swapping, such as the heads, but once I have it in hand and can do a complete comparison, I'll make a final decision for sure.

As of right now, I'm less than impressed. I'm actually glad I paid for the import.
