I'm with Mkall, haven't picked up the leader class yet but this one might be worth the wait.

Ugh, why does Guren Dragotron look so orange when he's supposed to be red? It's even in his name ("Guren" = "red", "crimson", etc.). :roll:

As noted before, the combined form of the Arms Micron weapon seen here is a different one from the magazine scans.

As much as I love the new deco, not having a new head is a deal breaker for me. I already have the Target version with the ugly cartoon head. I would be a buyer at $65-80, but I dont see that happening with Takara. Unless it goes on clearance of course. Maybe if they did the mold in a blue Cryo deco I would pay the $100+ that they will probally ask...

He looks red to me. Either it's you, or it's the lighting in the photos.

I'm thinking it's the latter since he looks a lot more red in these pics - http://transformerskorea.com/shop/shopdetail.html?branduid=664388&special=3

I've been undecided on this figure for a month now. Put it in your Predacon collection and it's going to stand out, but that's simply because it's big and brash. I personally find Hasbro's version more dynamic. At $100, I'd need to be totally convinced and if I'm honest, I'm not.

Pre-order cancelled. :-(

I have the Predacons Rising version, dont spend the money, the knee articulation kills the figure in my opinion. The voyager class of this character is superior in every way. Save your money.

I might be one of the few, but I like this mold a lot. I own the Hasbro version and this one looks even better. The translucent wings are just too damn cool. It's almost tempting enough to buy it a second timne.

I'm gonna wait until the Hasbro one goes on sale, which undoubtedly will happen here. Then, you're mine, Guren Dragotron :twisted:

Translucent wings? :???:

I guess they kinda have some translucent qualities to them, but... I dunno. :|
