Seems to me like there's a few other things they could have shown in these pictures.

Told you it was a Fangry retool.

I don't see what all the rage about this Arcee is. She looks nice, but not wonderful. The headmaster kibble shows behind her head and the paint is kind of splotched all over in vehicle mode. I don't hate it, but I don't see what you all are seeing.

I never got into tech culture beyond laptops and smart phones. Exactly what is a "power bank"? At first glance I swore it said Prime turned into a piggy bank. :???:

Loving the Arcee as im a huge rebirth fan. Glad it will sell in retail at a later date. Sucks for the people spending $600 plus airfare and hotel just to get her a couple months early. Oh well, at least you get to meet Chewbacca Mom and the walking Play Doh can. :-D

Leinad is ... Daniel spelled backwards! His face is his exo-suit helmet.

Looking forward to seeing the head reveal for Ultra Magnus, though I wish he had actual had an Optimus Prime for the Titan Master port.

I find it odd that the press release didn't name the Arcee Titan Master. :/

I need the tank/jet Tankette vehicle in the same blue as G1 Ultra Magnus' chest piece!

Why would Hasbro be compelled to spell Daniel backwards? Its a damn name how can anybody copyright or trademark it?

Oh dear lord that Arcee is absolutely terrible. The headsculpt isn't too bad I suppose, and the vehicle mode is better than I expected, but the robot mode... :SICK: Quite aside from the see-through bra and complete lack of any resemblance to Arcee, those SHOULDERS. Argh.

It might not be anything about Trademark it's probably just Hasbro coming up with a more robotic name for marketing purposes so basically this guy is not exactly Danial but a cybertronian homage to him.

When's the last time we got a human figure not including those "Statue" figures of the Prime kids?

Anyways it never made sense that a human could "fold" and transform into a head unless they were a cyborg or something which is part of why I prefer the Takara's take on the headmasters being extensions of the main robot or the headmasters being Cybertronian or minicons instead of Nubleans.

There's nitpicking and then there's denial.

Even if it is a remold it still resembles Arcee quite a lot heck it resembles her more then say Nautica.

Not saying you have to like it or anything but claiming it looks nothing like Arcee is ridiculous.

It's pink and white and turns into a cybertronian car. That is literally it as far as similarities go.

The head looks like Arcee, the arms and shoulders look like Arcee heck only the torso has any major deviation from her unoriginal Princess Leia rip off and the car looks like Arcee's too without the wheels.

Like I said denial.

Well as all other cybertronian technology, we will always compare it what seems realistic on our planet. In the cartoon, somhow the exosuits turned into heads that were somewhat hollow enough to be a cockpit for the nebulan. This meant the nebulan didnt have to be a circus performer that can fold into a pretzel. How they get from exosuit to cockpit is better left to the imagination.

Oh you mean Takara's Masterforce cartoon where human kids "fold" into the heads of the Headmaster Juniors and the adults transform into the engines of the Godmasters? ;) It's my favorite Transformers cartoon next to Beast Wars!
