    KFC's reflector is my favorite, by FT's reflector is spot on if you want a toon look. Better than any of the other options in that regard.

    As for the backpack on Koot, honestly a backpack doesn't bother me, but this one just looks sloppy.

    Tbh I don't really care about the backpack. In the past things have appeared to be weird or big on camera or in pictures but then they turn out to not actually be that way. If they are, I don't really care that much. I'd love to see anyone design a perfect Kup or any figure, who looks exactly like how everyone wants. I get displaying your figures on a set with a backdrop, that is the appeal of the clean backpack idea. I think that's fine, but I just don't think that really matters to me. As long as it looks like as much as the character to me as possible, I am satisfied, I am not picky. I can see why people would be picky but..it's not a breaking point for me personally. I feel like being that picky leads basically to just not owning a complete set of characters, and that's what I'm after. Idk, just my two cents.

    This 100X. MT's Starscream is more Cartoon Accurate than anything TT has put out yet, and those same geniuses that bash it (the look), love it now. lol?

    The size of the backpack isn't really an issue for me, but I do wish it was a little cleaner. There's just a bit of an unfinished quality to the backpack that is so uncharacteristic of what we've come to expect from FansToys. It's by no means a deal breaker for me, and I am still very much looking forward to this figure, but I am a little disappointed that they don't seem to have hit a home run with this one. In case it isn't obvious from my handle and avatar pic, Kup is kind of a big deal for me.

    That's funny I just read an article saying 63.58% of all collections are made up.

    I can forgive that backpack if they just paint the ugly bare plastic. I mean look at that picture of TT sunstreaker, or any recent TT masterpieces. Head to toe paint. Get with program FT!

    Root needs that backpack to haul all of his meds and alcohol. ;) 

    Don't pick on him! He's OLD. This FT is way better than the G1 toy. Back in my day, the G1 toy had only half a head! And we STILL loved him! :p

    The backpack does not bother me, it's the hunchback that makes me think Quasimodo.

    But MT's Downbeat is different.
    He reminds me of the toy and toon, much like Hasui's designs did. It's not perfect as I'm not a fan of the few sacrifices they made on the altmode and the transformation although enjoyable is finicky, but the botmode made no sacrifices. He's completely clean. It feels like a toy as if from a new design, good in and of itself, even without all the references to G1 Jazz. I'm not hating on takara mp's as I love this toyline but if you look at mp sunstreaker I think the ambition is just to great and you get sacrifices like his huge backpack (but yes I'm still buying it because no toy is perfect).

    Damn that is a honking big back pack. I normally waver back and forth between FT and XTB but I was feeling FT on Kup. This has made me uncertain again. Locke is still only in very early render stage though so it's hard to know what to expect.
    I think I'll be holding off on decision making. Unfortunately XTB seems to have surpassed even FT in terms of showing lots of designs and dragging out the release schedule.

    The backpack is big, but I tend to be more forgiving towards backpacks than ugly facesculpts (which usually stop me from buying a figure altogether) or lack of surface detailing. So as long as it doesn't impact the way the figure looks from the front, I can deal.

    You can get IDW styled figures from Hasbro Generations and MMC Reformatted anyway. I just don't get the point of adding that stuff, it's a waste of plastic. At least Takara's accessories are actually relevant to the character.
