Coming to us from user Bitick via dcinside, we have what appears to be our first look at a figure a lot of live action movie fans have been waiting for – Studio Series ROTF Leader The Fallen!
Although in a pretty significantly mistransformed and misassembled state, the image nonetheless should give a good first impression of the figure which, likely to the delight of many, does in fact look to have his signature face-removal feature.
As always we advise taking this with a grain of salt for now until we receive official confirmation, but until that happens you can sound off on what you think in the ongoing discussion thread!

I do have it in my hands, for what it's worth, and it feels solid but the use of translucent plastic worries me about longevity. It's nicer than the ROTF version, that's for sure.
Yeah. I forgot paint and plastic changes completely when viewed in hand. To everyone saying I need it in hand to even judge how it LOOKS, not feels *just* LOOKS, thanks for trying to invalidate my opinion on its appearance. My thoughts aren't going to magically change.
It's underpainted, for whatever reason is irrelevant because I'm purely judging how good it looks and in my own opinion I think the clear arms look cheap, the grey is ugly and it needs far more orange. I get the budget argument but it has like 1/3 of the mass of say leader jetfire and that was a triple changing figure that still had paint on nearly every surface. They reluctantly made the fallen and screwed it over putting their potential budget on more G1 elsewhere in SS and that's just it. This thing isn't even getting a full international release! I can only get it in hand for the cost of some MPs because my only option is importing. I'm not paying 75+ for something I don't like the look of and I'm not here to be railed about an unfair situation both with how the fallen has been treated and how fans can acquire a no doubt soon to be scalped figure.
Look I like the way the fallen looks and want to get him as soon as possible, but I’m not exactly sure what having him in hand would change if someone doesn’t like the look of it. You know how many times I didn’t like the look of something and was told “it’s better in person”, then was disappointed over and over again when I bought it. If he doesn’t like the plastic color or sculpt, let em.
They were asked why they didn’t like it and answered.
You are the first to suggest such a comparison. They never even mentioned 3p.
Bro if you haven’t held it in hand you can’t really say that…honestly The Fallen is a good figure and just…seriously be glad we finally have an actual proportionate and accurate looking one to the best of a retail budgets availability. I swear this forum demands retail to be akin to $500 third parties these days damn
At least have it in hand first before going in it so badly…
I like how “Revenge of The Fallen The Fallen” is grammatically confusing and grammatically accurate at the same time. The Department of Redundancy Department strikes again.
He is coming in and out of stock on Target! I was able to get an order in, just keep an eye on it.

I think the finish is really detrimental to the figure. It looks great sculpt wise but the plastic choice and sculpt sucks ass in my opinion.
Why don't you like it?
I waited many years for this guy and I'm so frustrated I can't earnestly say I like how it looks. I'm an ROTF superfan and I'm considering passing on this.
Holy good lord he’s gorgeous.

I thought they were planning on giving him the metallic finish but either cheaped out or ran out of budget for Leader Optimus

Yeah but its color matched to the original ROTF release… the one that doesn't combine

Doesn’t Jetfire come with the rotf ab piece just it hidden in his body?
