    What I was saying was that the gun is a different color in that pic than in all the other pics, obviousely none of these color schemes are final.

    This must be the most shoddy MP reveal in HISTORY!!! Wake me up when Takara reveals it.

    I feel like we've (or I have IMO) been spoiled by the ROTF Leader mold. I was hoping to be wowed by this release but I feel it's "meh." Don't get me wrong it's loads better than the initial Leader class of 10 years ago and is a good interpretation of his character from the same movie. But I'm not going to rush out and get it on it's release. I'll wait on a sale.

    Aside from the box pic, both the on display model and official photos show the gun as the same gunmetal as the unpainted parts of the robot. Only the official photos are touched up to make it look shinier.

    I forgot that the pre-production ROTF Prime had those collapsible rear wheels on the hips.

    Well, as far as i know that was the proper transformation in the ROTF leader, even in the commercials he looked like that, but with the toy you had the possibility to make these fuel tanks more accurate.

    The more I look at this, the more it does look like it's the same size as ROTF Prime. Just kinda sucks that MP Bee is taller that he was in the first trilogy.

    It looks like the backpack moved in a lot, but the chest got pushed out some, where the ROTF mold had the chest just right. That matrix gap is bugging me, along with the side windows(it's not even side doors anymore), and the firewall blocks look kinda ridiculous. And now that the small head has been pointed out, and the vehicle windows looking weird, shit. I'll still get it, but shit.

    Lol Hasbro - never, ever fail to disappoint with the mistransformation in official pics. Siiiiiiigh...

    They were so close on that alt mode one too!

    Box looks OK though - I guess Takara requested a review cycle on that one since they are sharing it and fixed it! :)  :)

    As Liege Prime perfectly summed it, the Weijiang still is the best version out there. Those big red flaps are way to wide and make it look really unfinished as if his guts are spilling out like an Alien just popped out.

    I think, however, if those details on the red flaps were colored with other colors since the detail is there, it would help to distract you from how big they are.
