Is it silly that no matter how cool this will undoubtedly look I won't want it because he won't transform the same way as his G1 self? (car front to chest etc.)

Am I too OCD for Chromedome? :shock:

Yeah, it's funny how it bothers us when the Transformation is vastly different or backwards. (Classics Ironhide, for instance.)

Still. Head sculpt does look really good — and 100% IDW. Makes it really obvious which shelf that dude is going on.

*Clears spot next to IDW Bumblebee and Orion Pax*

Yeah, looks good in concept, here's hoping the sculpt comes out the same. Looks like it matches the Prime style too, which is good for the body. I know I'm gonna want this when I see it...

Very true. All things considered, it could display well with the IDW Classics, Prime, or even Animated in a pinch. Depending on what you collect, it can find a home.

This is probably going to sound very stupid (coming fr someone who has never made a subscription to tfcc) But this will be the 2014 Exclusive, correct?

This should be one of the now seven subscription bots for 2014. The member exclusive is Rampage.

(Correct me if I'm off.)

Makes me wish I could afford to subscribe for that set.

But I wonder...

How would people react if Hasbro did a new Headmaster Chromedome-- and made Rewind his Headmaster partner?

I don't think we have enough folks out there following the IDW books well enough to make the connection so we're likely to have a lot of people having a "WTF?" moment if they were to see those two paired up.
Plus there's the folks like myself (old timers) that are quite loyal to the original pairings. Chromedome was my first Headmaster figure back in the day so I'm totally on-board with the people wanting his transformation style (and partnering) to stay the same even though I absolutely love the story-line pairing him with Rewind in the new books.

Honestly, they could tweak stuff a bit here and there and it wouldn't bother me but I am SOOOOO sick and tired of seeing the recycled Prime figures that I'd rather he wasn't made at all instead of being a recycled, slightly re-tooled Prime figure. It's just lazy and insulting in my book and he's just too damn cool a character in the IDW series to get a 5th time around body treatment like all the other figures are getting.

And Sabrblade and JelZe... love what you guys did there. :lol:

Will look great with the Rewind, Treadshot and Fisitron figures.

Hopefully the other 3 figures will be as interesting.

Hey guys, what do you get when you put a head drawn by Nick Roche on a different body that's also drawn by Nick Roche, and is completely on topic?

You get this, which is all kinds of awesomeness:



NOTE: Not official.

The body is a fan-recolor of this illustration taken from this book.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFine. Dammit, I wasn't planning on continuing the subscription service, but dammit, I WANT that Chromedome and I KNOW the bastard will sell out in hours like Punch and Over-Run did otherwise (and yes, dammit, that mystery seventh figure is tantalizing me like a cat toy).

GO AHEAD, TAKE MY DAMN MONEY YOU HEARTLESS BASTARDS!
