According to the source should get updated pics sometime next month.
the full prototype is coming soon. Tfcon perhaps!
The full pic c/o JiangXing匠型 and JXFigures
The person on the FB page said that more pictures of the prototype are coming sometime next week
Doesn't look bad, but PE looks better to me.
Completely different style. This is show accurate, while PE is more of a mech-inspired, non-organic redesign.
I prefer perfect effects version.... but if they plan on doing all the TV characters..... TM Tarantulas, Depth Charge, and Rampage! I'm not buying mp bw right now, but I'd be down for collecting if those were sold.
Right now, the MP BW toys are too few to seriously collect.
So how does this size compare to the PE version?
The designer PMd me. He said the prototype will be at TFcon and the height (to top of head) is 30cm. He referred to it as MP scale.
That would just about suffice for MP scale as long as he’s talking about bot mode height and not the full length of the figure in dragon mode - nose to tip of tail. Hmm, maybe it’s time to actually consider getting this...
Damn, that's huge. Can't wait to see it finished.
As long as the headsculpt is good.
I'm fairly certain he is 30cm tall in robot mode.
Earlier in the year, @trey carter and a few other members campaigned to make this MP scale (as the designer planned to make it 26cm).
The designer has stated he will try and follow @GALVATOM scale chart (for this and subsequent releases), however he didn't want to go bigger than 30cm for TM2 Megs as - in his opinion - it would affect playability.
He has also stated his Optimal Optimus will be 33-34cm.
Not impressed as of yet, my money is on the Transart one. But unfortunately I don't think those guys go to TFcon (or anywhere out of China for that matter)
Holy crap, yeah I think I remember voting on what size to make this guy! These releases take so long I forget about half the things I’m waiting for!
Amazing. At the conclusion of the scale thread he took the info and agreed t9 make it 28-29 cm if i recall and i almost begged (lol) that he make it 30 cm or close to 12" so they could make a MP Rampage 28-29cm. Im glad they ultimately decided to make it 30cm.
I hope as many people support this company as possible. They are putting out a large, accurate and extremely ambitious first effort, and have taken in what the fans are saying.
Wait, this ISN'T the TransArt one?!
Looking good so far, can't wait to see prototype pics. PE's version looks nice too, but the all-mechanical design doesn't really do it for me and the TransArt one really does just look like an upscaled version of the BW toy so far. I'd probably be all up for a PE Transmetal 2 Dinobot though...
According to their Facebook page it's probably going to be around the 900RMB mark price-wise - kind of pricey but if it's ~30cm tall in robot mode then it'll be pretty big as well.
That's a lot of pressure so I've tried another method of nailing down TM2 Megatrons size, I't's a rough way of doing it but there's really not much to go off with only 3 episodes of screen time.
So DBII goes through this doorway, moments later so does Megs.
Rampage's height compared to Megs s1 and s2 body's are well documented and I'm pretty happy with this scaling of Dinobot II compared to Rampage allowing a bit of room for Dinobots perpetual squat like stance.
So using these references... If MP-43 Beast Wars Megatron is going to be 248mm, from my best ability to gauge then MP scale for TM2 Megatron should be 33cm roughly.
Thats actually cheaper than what they originally thought they'd need to price. They were looking at around 1100-1300 Rmb.
To put that into perspective, PE's is 10", not BWMP scale and is 170 and up. This is pretty much BWMP scale.(around 12") and seeks to be show accurate while being around $135-150. MP dinobot which is like 2 inches shorter is $250
I wanted it to be around 32 cm and optimal optimus to be around 36 cm, but its close enough i suppose. Those two are kinda open to interpretation simply because they just need to be larger than everyone else. The next largest guy is BWMP Rampage and i believe he should be 28-29 cm. Can you confirm or deny that @GALVATOM
