    Man, my hopes were shattered coz I thought this was gonna get released soon. Now I'm tempted to get Allen again coz of the super low price tag since I sold him months ago.

    edit
    Ehhhh what the heck, I've waited so long for this, Whats a few more months.

    Exactly. This whole accuracy to the source is what's ridiculous to me. I'm really enjoying the look of the vehicle modes. I think they look great and do not bother me the least bit that there are some discrepancies from the details of the cartoon design. To me, as long as it has the iconic features to capture the look to make the character recognizable then it's good enough. I could care less about how far the nose sticks out or the exact position of cockpit relative to the buttock. Seriously, life must be hard when you follow details so strictly to a T. This is not nuclear engineering or brain surgery.

    Have this on preorder, but think the exposed wheels in bot mode is really unsightly.

    It wasn't that obvious in the grey prototype but once coloured the wheels just pops. Such a pity.

    It's a shame that this guy's release is still pretty far away.


    Ah well.

    They've improved the paint from the earlier samples. The forearms weren't as dark before.

    Looks OK. 80 percent where I want it...

    The inside legs are painted grey, yet the yellow is unpainted?

    Sigh... Almost there FT...

    Idk, the yellow shoulders seem really distracting to me. At first I thought it might be the color, but it's pretty close to the toon (I think?). I do want to know what's going on with the chest. Every pic I see now has the chest covering his chin. Does it come up and cover his neck? If so, that really needs to be corrected. The chest piece should sit flush with where his neck begins.

    Otherwise, changes look great and the figures colors are really coming together nicely.

    I think it just has to do with the perspective and lens distortion of cameras. The head sits behind the chest piece, so the angle of the camera lens can't see it.

    The head sits "behind" the chest? Do you mean the chest is blocking it or that it's just place on the body where the head is attached?

    I'm not sure if camera angle could explain, since it seems to be in every pic. I thought I saw a side shot that had the chest sticking up above the body a bit. It would be great is someone could confirm this with a side shot of the figure.
