Thanks to Benson Yee YouTube channel we can share for you our first in-hand of the upcoming Transformers Shattered Glass Flamewar & Fireglide.
This is an official Flameware sample, sent by Hasbro for promotional material. This figure is a redeco of the Legacy Transformers Prime mold inspired by the Botcon 2005 exclusive Flamewar toy (originally an Energon Arcee redeco). She comes with a red and black redeco of Siege Pteraxadon. We have a closer look at the packaging, robot mode and accessories and extra parts included with this figure. Curiously, while she’s supposed to be a Shattered Glass redeco, the only main change to the original Flamewar’s deco is the red Decepticon insignia. This toy is a Hasbro Pulse exclusive as the rest of the Shattered Glass Collection and it’s planned for release in November 1st 2022.
See the new images after the jump, as well as Benson Yee’s video review, and then let us know your impressions on the 2005 Boards!

So you're not even gonna attempt anything to see if there's even an issue with yours?
Better to know for sure rather than just assuming your copy is bad too.
Don’t want to mess with that either. I just won’t peg it into her hand
5mm drill bit. You'll wonder why you didn't buy one sooner.
At least test the right hand before deciding not to use it at all.

Because it's not an issue everyone has.
Ok. I’ll use the arrow mode and not put it in her right hand. If her left hand has no defects, that’s good as well
Do what I did years ago: buy a 5mm drill bit and run it through* any tight "5mm" holes. It has helped immeasurably with Hasbro's lack of consistency
*Turn the bit by hand, not by power drill!
You can use the ports on her arm for a pseudo crossbow mode
She showed up. I’m guessing since no reply to my question, maybe I won’t put any weapons on her right hand to be safe. Perhaps just have the weapons installed in storage mode

Ouch. So it’s best not to put a weapon on her right hand ever unless I do some minor sanding off?
To be clear, It wasn't her axe that did it. That was actually a pretty loose fit on mine. I wanted to give her the minigun that came with old movie 2 Recon Ironhide. And that gun has always had an extremely thick handle. So it was definitely my own fault.
Pushed my luck…Apparently putting that gun in 5 or 6 times was fine. But 7? Nah that broke it.
Flamewar and her crew go off on their own.
Metroplex gets out of the ground (T30 Titan body)
Flamewar has epiphany about the past actions of Megatron and Cannonball.
Overall, it's alright.
Pretty good, about on par with the rest of the series so far.
People read those?
I just throw mine in a pile.
How is the comic book?
Hopefully my hand doesn't crack. I didn't know that was an issue and I had her posed with one of Recon Ironhide's guns which has always had a pretty thick peg in my experience.
