I'm torn with this mold. I'm not getting the regular release as the Amazon one is pre-ordered. I'm just not sure I like it. The gorilla arms are a major bummer. I am glad to see some bulk in this figure though.
The soft rubber usage is atrocious and wish the stupid red spikes on his back were left out.
I'm wondering if they can be cut off or melted in some way as to not destroy the entire piece. Lopping them off with a pair of scissors is not going to work.

Stinger does not appear to have a new head, unfortunately.

He seems integral to the line over there being at it's forefront. Then again, they are not advertising for the small one step optimus. And it wouldnt be for redundancy, since they have 2 grimlocks. Something odd is going on with all this.
Which figure are you referring to?

None, that's what is crazy. There is no planned Hasbro release for the tent pole figure from the Lost Age Easy line. That boggles my mind. It seems this whole line is based on the toys' play factor of which there are 2. There is the instant transformation and the interaction with other figures. The lack of LA01 in North America makes the line almost pointless since it denies certain the play factor of these toys (such as them being the right size to store in a trailer).
I am not complaining as a collector (I wouldnt buy any of these anyway) but I am really puzzled and curious at the business angle. It seems Hasbro was far more involved with the gimmicky flip and change transformers while Takara preffered the interaction factor. hasbro just seems to be going at it in a very half assed way. I am sure they would sell much more of the easy transformers to kids if they had that LA01 to go with it.
I would have guessed mybe a christmas release but we should have had some word of it by now with all the recent cons.
