Hey...what head sculpt is that?

Is that a actual new one? I don't recognize it.

It's just a heavily photoshopped Meister head sculpt.

The actual toy will most likely have a new sculpt.

Wow, if that's the case this would be the first new head sculpt on just a repain in quite a while (not for Binal-Tech...but for Binalternators in general).

It'd be since...well...of the last few repaints (Hot Rod, Nemesis Prime, Cam Shaft, Rollbar, Ricochet, Blaster, Alert, Sunstreaker, and...uh...Decepticharge, I think) it's been since Decepticharge since a repaint figure was actually a slight remold as well. It'd be nice if they go back to that, it doesn't make the repaints seem as cheap.

EDIT: Actually, I take that back, Alert was the last true remold we got (even if it wasn't a new head sculpt). It was slightly different from Streak.

Rodimus has a different head sculpt than Mirage, albeit he can be argued as being not truly a "remold". If you consider KP Rodimus as a remold of Mirage, you'd also have to consider Hasbro and Takara Prowl as being remolds of each other.

He does? I didn't realize that. I thought it was just a repainted head (like Skids/Broadblast). I guess I haven't gotten much of a look at Rodimus yet.

Hmm...interesting. Doesn't look a whole lot like Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime. It has the little forhead thingy, but the visor and lambchops are kind of strange.

Thanks for the pic, though!

Up for preorder at BBTS.

Also has very blurry picutres of the actual toy with the new head sculpt (not photoshopped).

Up for pre-order at hlj.com as well

Standart price of 6175 yen for those pre-ordering it before september 13th.

Here's thinking the line won't end after Convoy and Rodimus...but then again, BTA only got three releases.

Autorooper makes for a nice 'bot. I'll restate my ever present hope this comes to the US as an Alternator.
That extraneous fleshling, though...her head looks too doughy for her body frame.
