After a couple months of waiting, we have finally been given the full reveal of the Transformers Subscription Service 2.0 figure, Chromedome! Chromedome, as we've been previously informed, will be a retool and redeco of Prime: Robots in Disguise Deluxe Wheeljack, and will come with not only Wheeljack's swords, but his old partner, Stylor, who no longer transforms into Chromedome's head, but his weapon. Stylor is a redeco of the Micron S.2, who was available only in Japanese markets under their Prime: Arms Micron line.

How many Autobot symbols does one bot need? :BANG_HEAD:

Trying to please too many people at once. If the mold is trying to go the comic route, then do comic colours. Instead of trying to compete with FP who has the majority of G1 fans on lock.

He looks pretty cool. If it wasnt for Fansproject Code I would have bought this guy.

I don't mind the more G1 colours. It's the head that makes it for me. Not matter how much I look at the FP version it never really strikes me as Chromedome. This one does despite the colours.

Looks like I'm going to have to get him and Rewind. I hope BBTS will get them. Can't afford going through the club. Especially since these are the only 2 I want

He doesn't look bad. Not at all.

Too bad Code is literally in the mail right now.

Is code still available somewhere?

Aside from the silly giant symbols, I like this guy's vehicle mode. But something about his head looks really off, like it's too long or something.

Wish granted.

umm...its shopped on? It looks like it was colored in MS Paint then given a ton of effects. I should know...

Something still looks "off" about the head to me too, but that's just because I'm still 3 years behind on IDW, so it looks more like Hellbat in toy colors than Chromedome. Once they've got it actually sculpted, maybe they'll find some way to get it onto a jet mold down the road?

I wonder if his bio will rationalize Wheeljack's swords by claiming Stylor talked him into carrying them because katanas are "in" right now. Or has Chromedome actually been associated with swords? I know Stylor becoming a crossbow is sort of an homage to the Charge Arrow, but I still haven't watched much of Headmasters.

If I didn't hate that Wheeljack mold... :roll:

After looking at him and waiting a while for the final reveal.... ehhh, just makes me want to spend the money on FP Code instead. One third the cost of the Sub service. :-?

Am I the only one who thinks it'd be easier to just paint a $7 Wheeljack? The head is really nice, but not necessarily worth $40-70 to me. :BANG_HEAD:

To be fair, this is Prime Wheeljack - his original head is buried in his body, so I'm not sure what head would look right on this mold. Needs more neck. :BANG_HEAD:

Seven dollars? Where the hell do you shop at? Where I'm at, Deluxes are almost fifteen dollars (tax included).

The three Autobot emblems and that brown are my only complaints. Hopefully the brown will be less bold on the final product. And I really hope that the legs are made of the brown plastic and not brown paint on the beige. That doesn't look too good.

Currently underwhelmed by my dashed high expectations. Hoping for a quick rebound when the actual sculpt for the head is shown.

$90+ for this, or $90+ for code hmmmmm, I'm thinking for expensive chromdome's, i'll take my chances with the third party.

Yup! TFsource is where I got him. Quad U is awesome, and Smart Robin looks cool enough that I had to go ahead, backtrack and spring for Code.

Conveniently, Aces Toy Store also has Code in stock.

Five Below has most of the PRID deluxes for five bucks. Picked up 6 Vehicons from there a couple weeks ago, bringing my Steve count to 12. Because honestly, who doesn't need a dozen Vehicons?

Well, that explains it: there are no 5 Belows where I'm at (at least, to my knowledge).

FINALLY! What took them so darn long to reveal this thing? This was the very first TFSS 2.0 figure they ever announced, and the second one to have any visual reveals to it, yet it was the last one to have its toy mock up shown? It's about darn time they showed us Chromedome.

Now all we have left to see are the Arms Microns. :D

When they want to, they can knock one out of the park. I commend this Chromedome to no end. While I do understand the cost for not doing a headmaster, BRAVO for at least making Stylor his Targetmaster weapon !!!
