    I don't understand the yellow glass chest as well. I'm also not fond of the blue horizontal trim below the yellow chest, that trim should've been red just like MP22/toon. They already gave him the simple toon chest design, why not just color it correctly. His back should've been all red, now is just too much blue...need to break up the color.

    Other than the above, IA UM statue/sculpture is utterly magnificent! Head/ face looks nice. I also love the part from the mid torso and down to the feet, those accents/ detail colors are utterly exquisite e.g. the bottom of feet representing the trailer tail light, or the red circular color at the side of the lower leg. If the finish paint product looks like that, wow, very epic. Lastly, the gun and base/canon look perfect all around.

    At 27 inch, this IA UM statue will cost us $1050 Dollar before Shipping. Looks like Ultimetal UM (close to 18 inch tall, $1,099) figure will have a competition now.

    Beggars can't be choosers, but I sure wish MP-22's proportions were closer to this.

    All-in-all this is a nice statue but it's like someone came in after hours and messed with the sculpt and paint so it's just shy of perfect.

    sculpt is good, but as was mentioned, colors are off. Doesn't look like UM to me because of it.

    I hope IA will see this and make a change to the colors just like they did the with the arm wheel. They already design him with the cartoon in mind, I don't know why they have to mess up with his chest colors and back. The sculpture itself is already exquisite and magnificent, I hate to see the colors deviation bring it one step back.
    I'm sure that DM will happen. They gotta milk the mold somehow especially when it's over a grant.
    As per IA Facebook comment:
    "Imaginarium Art Hi Guys, About the Wheels on the Arm, it is detachable, after some feedbacks, we will be removing the wheels in the final product."

    You forgot to pickup the out of place wheels on his forearms.

    I'll stick with MP22

    From IA FB UM preview product, the arm wheels look detachable, so I didn't want to over kill it. But now it confirmed from IA Facebook, the arm wheels will NOT be included in the finish product.

    from my perspective, it doesn't look like ultra magus. It looks like a combination of delta and ultra magnus. If you're going for a G1 Toon look, you should color it more like MP-22
