    I forgot to add, that I love the little tender car/base he comes with. It somehow, in my weird mind, makes him fit even better into the one foot in CHUG, one foot in MP style he excels at.

    I definitely can't agree that the tolerances are "fine" personally lol... on mine at least... but I can say I ultimately don't care because he's so fun and aesthetically *exactly* what I want.

    This is a little too dark... but we'll just call it "moody" since I took it really quick right after the two TR triple changers arrived earlier lmao. :p

    I don't think they made anything else.

    Wasn't Fancy Toys originally called Machine Boy?

    Always good to see a Threadbump for the Captain. It's like seeing an old friend

    I picked this guy up at a convention, basically an impulse purchase. Great mold, just too small to fit into my MP collection. Would be great if WJ wanted to pick up this mold upsize it and maybe throw in a few improvements.

    Awesome idea.
    Make the head a little bigger. Stuff like that. I'd love for that to happen.

    Huh? Alternate foot transformation? If that serves to makes him a head taller I'm all ears. Can somebody please elaborate?

    :thumb  Looks interesting and easy to do. Unfortunately Ben's review doesn't really show how it looks in the end and how much height the Captain gains. I'll try that later when I get home. Maybe someone has a chance to take a pic sooner...;)

    By coincidence yesterday I was messing with mine and noticed that this alternated feet is possible but I did not care much because I actually sold my old Evila Star because he was too big for my collection. The way it looked was quite similar to MP seekers height though. I'll try taking some pics tomorrow.

    Exactly, that's why I asked here. Honestly, I assumed it was more well known until I read the thread again and found no mention of it.

    So...I tried this out and I'm really pleased with the new feet configuration. He's basically wearing shoes now, which makes him a good head taller. It doesn't look odd at all and he's still very stable. Great great find! No need for another MP Astrotrain anymore - the Captain is safe! I wouldn't want him to be taller than this since in the toon most of the time he wasn't much bigger than a seeker in robot mode.

    Man, one of the KO companies needs to upsize this thing. Make him Gewalt-sized in bot mode and I will be a happy camper.
