It's the inset image in the scan. It looks like he just holds a little tray with drinks on it. Enlarged for you pleasure:

Is there going to be an MP-9 version - 10% more expensive, but it comes without the cap and tray? Because I'd be more interested in that.


Reckon there's any chance of someone doing a custom bandana and Big Grim shoulder panel? That'd ****ing rock.

Oh yes, my eyes must have been distracted by the overt attempt to remove the watermark...

Indeed. That would have made me more giddy than a ...waiter mode. I'm not sure how to feel about this one yet, I'm going to reserve my judgement till I hear/see more about it. There is no way in hell I'll ever afford it anyway, so I can just be a spectator this time

Mmm.

Though I don't mind the dino gait. It's the robot proportions that seem a bit off.

Maybe, in this instance, it'll be deliberately ridiculous to transform, thus forcing most people to leave it in dinosaur mode... making it even more season 3 of the cartoon accurate?

Ah. Never had any of the Armada line. I might just have to see what he looks like when he's out. Plus he comes with a mini-con, so that's a big bonus for a $10 TF.

The crown has sold me (and no doubt others as well). If he could just come with a letter answering pen as well...

He'd better come with an apron to go with the drink tray. Otherwise I'll have to steal one from my sisters' Barbies.

Oh, like any of you believe for a second they wouldn't.

I'm stunned they haven't released a monotone grey version of Megatron with grid paintwork as a "mid-reformatting" variant. But then now I've mentioned it...

You bastard, watch it! Takara has spies everywhere!

I mentioned a potential e-hobby repaint of Omega Supreme as a Guardian Robot way back when Sky Lynx was announced, and look what happened...

The high-res pics do look better. Will depend on price, final size, final colours, etc.

Methinks they are aware that this mold is NOT what we were expecting/wanting, therefore they are attempting to pad it out with pointless accessories/homages. Which, IF I decide to go out of my way to get this, will all be going straight in the bin. IF I buy it, and given the insane pricetag that's a pretty monstrous if, I'm geting it for the figure, not a small collection of needless wastes of plastic. In fact, I might just recycle them.
