Can’t stop looking at it. Love the details. Can’t wait for June and July. :wub:

I have to add that the reimagining designs of the Ride Armors added more uniqueness on Yellow’s ride. ^_^

I just hope the Yellow figure is unique.  Stig and Ray can share proportions, but Yellow should be much taller and thinner than the others.

WF2019W_89.jpgFrom the Speaker podcast (Tochiro's) post. 

fighter looks nice from that angle and the back is nice and short....granted this is just art.  the legs are fat but somehow thinner in fighter mode?  also lok slike leg joint is attached ot not the traditional area on the hip but higher up on the torso in the fighter mode-maybe ther is anotehr armature the joint it attached to.   bottom line... need to see the actual toy in fighter mode.

Based on the artwork the Fighter seems looks shorter compared to other company's take. And it looks like the crotch joint slides up on the figure probably to help the legs make shorter in Fighter.

Yes, though I don't know that this particular mock-up is transformable, the end product will be. 

I think it is transformable.  Looking at anymoon blog pictures, there are tabs on the forearms and shoulder missiles pods.  Also, the middle missile pod has a peg to peg the gun on it, but need to remove the magazine clip first.  And...., the gun has a T shaped holes on each side, look like the magazine clip can be attached on it when you set the gun on the middle missile pod.  Hopefully this also opens up a possibility that there are hard points on the wing to attach the gun.

Well, judging from the prototype from a year ago, the fighter does looks shorter

Lancer looks awesome. Disappointed that Rook wasn't there. But the excitement for the line isn't making me worried. The Alpha looks pretty good too.

 

Was the non-transforming Alpha there?

You meant this big vinyl figure one from Future or Action Toys?

Bringing it back for comparison!!

I thk I prefer the plain missile panel looks of the prototype..and also Noel’s choice of blue!

Aaawwww, Seti. You remembered. :rolleyes:

To be honest, me too, I prefer the blue for the old Yellow kits and figures. It's lighter and it has more red hue. Which for me, it really looks good for Yellow as a character. The blue they use is too blue for my taste.

But, like I said before, it's not going to stop me for getting it. Period. ^_^

Personally (and this is all just personal taste when it comes to these details), I prefer the new color. Something about it just makes me think higher-end product, as compared to the color posted above on the old prototype, which looks more toy-ish to me. I don't know, maybe I'm associating it with some other cheaper figure?

Aesthetically, I still like the hexagons.

As long that is not as gloss like that and more in-line with how matte the previous 2 bikes are, I'm all good. ^_^ :good: 

 

I agree. I'm guessing it's a fairly matte finish, just with bright lights shining on it in the display.

Since these are reimagined designs, one could always say that in this reimagined universe that Yellow has similar proportions to Stick and Ray. ;)

Speaking of designs, does anyone know if Sentinel commissioned Shinji Aramaki to redesign Yellow's Ride Armor, or did they do it themselves?

Yeah, I like the cleaner look of the initial prototype too, especially for bike mode.  The above pic already shows that Yellow's ride stands out from the two Mospeada's headlights/chest assemblies.

And count me as liking noELjm's coloring just a bit more.

Hopefully, the production version will be just a shade or two lighter (or the blue will be mixed with a little more white or gray).  Plus, it would make it easier to see the black markings on the shoulder armors.

They still have time to make tweaks before final production, right?

I can't help but wonder if the front fairing/missile housings aren't simply a separate part that tabs-in for the open/firing mode. Don't mind the choice of dark blue, but Yellow's onesie would look nicer if it was sky blue rather than the Ley blue on the prototype. The latter is a pretty realistic change that they can make between now and production.

Are the preorders opening in June and July if they’re being released?

I guess that's it. I checked and didn't save the image myself. Unless it's still in my unsorted area. Whichever option gives us the best fighter and robot mode is fine for me. If I have to I'll get a separate non-transforming robot that will be closer to the anime.

Make sure to check this thread form time to time for any upcoming info. ;)

Can someone summarize the differences between the v1 and reissue Sentinel mospeadas?  I have the originals.  Just better fit on ball joints?

I have to say, it's not much of a difference. Some says it has tighter ball joints on some armor parts, e.g. like the ankle guard that doesn't fall off that much compared to the first release. The fragile handle is still the same coz I remember seeing a Twitter post that he broke the handle on the reissue.

Both my copies from the first release is still ok.
