    I'd love to see Que too.
    And Jazz
    Jolt
    Sideswipe
    All of carbots (except Skids and Mudflap, I hate their racial stereotype) should get this treatment.

    Yeah, it is not that I hate this attempt. The backpack is a very minor nitpick (And who knows, maybe they can do better in the next carbots? Finger crossed). Die cast is a plus for me that easily negate those nitpick.

    Que had such a neat design and I'm sad his long sword was never used. The head was goofy, though.

    Yo, I didn't realize so many others liked Que's design too! Let's start a fanclub o3o!!!111!

    But really, he was neat. At one point, my family car was a creamy white Mercedes Benz E350 (very close to the model Que was). Though we had to part with it, we enjoyed the car and affectionately dubbed it 小白. Of course Que had to be of the cancelled DOTM deluxe wave, and of course they couldn't somehow work his upper front tires to match the proper CGI. I winded up with 2 Que figures, so I partially ruined one unintentionally through painting, and gave up the weapons to another fellow TFW2005 member (and if you're reading this, I still hope you have and will continue to enjoy them)

    Que's also one of only examples that comes to mind of a movieverse TF that took on the form of a 4-door sedan. I'd like to see more Transformers represented in that kind of alt-mode

    (also I'm waiting on my preorder of AA Firage, but have practically committed to buy so much so I practically own the right to go off topic)

    You mean stereotype.

    Which is also odd, considering their actors were portraying their own race being stereotyped.

    You should get MPM-03 regardless. He's an amazing figure.

    I'd love these guys to even attempt the arcee sisters. Maybe as a 3 pack. I love motorcyle transformers amd i know there design is either love it or hate it but i really liked the idea of the wheel base instead of legs. Hasbro never did give us a distinctive elita one mold plus with some clever engineering they could turn out great.

    It would be pretty tough to get a decent transformation for a figure that small, but It could be passable. The HA Chromia is pretty good, albeit a bit finicky. Come to think of it, it actually already scales well with the MPM line.

    I love the designs and I love this idea! Honestly, for bikeformers I feel like making them in their own scale is fine. And throw in a Mohawk to face off with them!

    Curses, TFW2005 never notified me I was tagged in your post! Sorry for the late response.

    So the story with this figure is that it was designed by ST Studio. It was probably meant to just be a one off custom (like if you or I were to paint/decorate/build on some of our existing figures for our own collection). Only the story didn't end there. capcomkai, a fellow TFW2005 member (with the artist's permission), shared this custom to the Radicons forums, where it garnered a lot of attention and demands to be reproduced/reinvented into a figure that could be mass-produced for consumers like you and I. Alien Attack came along, took the challenge, and the rest is history as we count down the days to AA Firage's release.

    What I posted was a picture of the original concept. That's why there's so many pins/screws in it. The first draft of this figure started as a scratchbuild over the skeletal structure of HFTD Battle Blade Bumblebee. OrangeDraft posted a picture of the actual final product. Don't forget, there are compromises to mass producing a figure, and as such, not each figure can be individually painted to perfection like the original copy was, so these mass-produced ones are already molded in some type of red plastic.

    EDIT: I adamantly believe this will be the final appearance of the actual toy, and I am completely satisfied with that outcome

    very eager to see the video reviews before i decide, but from the pictures it looks like they’re using the cheap brittle glossy plastic. i’m hoping i’m wrong and that it’s just the glossy paint, but hearing how they’re affiliated with xtb and being traumatized with apollyon, i’m cautiously optimistic.

    I have a minor problem with a loose shoulder that hardly affects the figure' s possibility. Are you having bad luck with the MPM line or do you have some sort of agenda?
