Nice looking robot and the vehicle is accurate. However, OOF on that windshield. This bot seriously need the Reprolabels treatment.

BTW, will this be a E.B Games exclusive like Ectotron in Canada?

How would an out-of-place cel-shaded windshield improve the situation? I think that'd be more of a lateral move :P

I don't think Repros will make a cartoon cel-shaded sticker for a non-cartoon toy. Like, come on.
If the windshield part can be dismantled and reassembled easily, then a sticker that will give the car tinted windows will do the perfect trick.

I dunno, they did them for a couple Studio Series toys... And for WFC toys even when they're out of place because of detail or basis... And it feels like they prioritize them over more useful things sometimes...

Sadly, I think that's a pipe dream. Same for transparent stickers that tint the glazing from outside.... I think the best that can be hoped for is black stickers, slightly shaded to try and look like real tinted windows.

Dark transparent tinted stickers would do the trick even if applied over the windows. Because that "ice cube rack" behind that windshield is the most unsightly thing I ever saw on a transformers car.

Oh, they totally would. I'm just saying that hoping for them from Reprolabels is a pipe dream. At best what they'll do is opaque stickers trying to look like tinted glass.

I fully admit that I haven't seen any of the movies straight through but wasn't the windshield reinforced on the DeLorean?

Maybe but even in the MadMax world, they will not go that far.

I don't think the DeLorean had a reinforced windshield. Doc used a DeLorean because of it's stainless steel construction.

I agree that i wish they had tinted the windows. I don't know if I'd get a Reprolabel to do it, though. Maybe.

I'm not sure if I was clear but I meant the windshield was reinforced after the modifications.

Did you happen to also get a shovel to help dig that whole you're digging there? Image

Maverick is up for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse too, due in October for $49.99.

Well ... the plane mode is done really well. But I have to admit the robot seems kind of bland. Those shoulders bother me.

$50 for that....haha, no.

The robot mode is worse than some of the old star wars line. The dirt effect really clashes with the clean parts. Kind of crazy when a cyber battalion jetfire outshines this monstrosity. Hopefully this mold will never get reusues and repaints despite the detailed head and nice jet mode.

Oh....oh, no...

I mean, I had no interest/attachment towards this anyway, but that just looks bad. He looks like he's made out of 3d printer resin so he has no real color, he's mistransformed in half the shots which make his shoulders be too low, he comes with a tiny motorcycle that serves no purpose since he doesn't come with a minifigure or anything to ride it....that is not $50 dollars worth of effort.

The head sculpt is probably the best part of the figure.

I pre-ordered, for now, but I've probably about 1/2 way talked myself into cancelling already. It seems to be a voyager figure, so I'm not sure why the $20 markup instead of the $10 markup Ectotron and Gigawatt got. October is already going to be expensive (SS Blitzwing, Overload and Skipjack, Earthrise Sky Lynx and Scorponok, 2x Centurion Drone and God Neptune, and this is just pre-orders due in October. Sorry wallet)
