I like the colors. It looks very "Rhinox" to me.

Heh, we're getting a toy of the poet, and we didn't even know it. ;)

As nice as it looks, I think I'll wait awhile before picking this guy up on the secondhand market. The $100+ price he's getting on eBay is cringeworthy for the time being.

Better than last year's crappy freebie, but not by much...

I'd slap a repro on it and call him something else..

Or simply inverted color spectrum colors?

Or homage to this?

And thanks to "Straxus" being unavailable to trademark, his official name is "The Bard of Darkmount". :lol:

And this news depresses me... I'll go hide in my rabbit hole and cry the weekend away.

Well, this is an awesome development. Not sure what this will go for on Ebay, but if by some miracle I see one under #40 I may just get it. I'm not sure how many people agree with me, but I love this figure sculpt!

I'm a big fan of the sculpt too, but the colour scheme is sick. And not sick in a 'down with the kids' way, it is just disgusting.

No one said collecting the Shattered Glass toyline would be cheep.

I was hoping for more Classics than SG the year, for a VS theme, it's a bit one-sided!

I like the mould, not keen on the colours, saves me money I guess!!

It's a stretch but you could pretend he's Classics Landmine.

The price will probably only go up, not down.

How about Autobots & SG Decepticons VS Decepticon & SG Autobots? Would that even things out?

I want it, I want it, I want it! I like the mold, have the other 2.

But I'm not paying ridiculous evilBay prices. I'll check on it in a month or so.

As for the color scheme, I thought it was an homage to Scrounge, whom Straxus crippled in the comics.

The Bard of Darkmount? That screams Shakespeare to me! So, while I'm not in love with the color, I would gladly be willing to discuss a purchase from anyone who goes to Bot-Con.

Please PM me if you're interested in getting rid of yours.

Thanks!!!

I was thinking he could be a tribute to Emirate Xaaron, who has a similar tank mode in a few of his different incarnations.

really didn't like the colours, til I realised it looks like he's made out of Caramac, which does improve his standing slightly.

This is awesome, I love they toy's name "The Bard of Darkmount", that card is cool and hilarious all at once.

Well, held out for awhile at least...$127 seems fair given what everyone else is currently paying for him on eBay at the very least. Now to just make room on an already crowded autobot shelf @.@
