    I don't think this will be as big as Despo. Doesn't look like it in comparison to Contact Shot/Visualisors to me at least.

    It would be a slice of heaven. I'm sorry but the web series from machinma several months back really stunk. I got my hopes up for nothing.

    As for Howling Meteor I like how they are able to shorten the null rays to look like missiles in alt mode. We even got something like that with the original g1 80s toy. I felt that Takara refusing to incorporate this on their expensive seekers was just pure laziness and corner cutting. Full length null rays look ridiculous in alt mode.

    Crude photoshop/illustrator measurement compared with the reflector on the upper shelf shows meteo to be almost exactly the same size as mp3/11. That's really disappointing. I hope I'm wrong. I'm not paying 3p money for a starscream that's the same size as the one I already got for $60, no matter how much better it looks.

    It's about damn time we got a worthwhile seeker update. Very cartoonish. I like these a lot better than the official. Finally have a level chest/shoulder area to match Takara's own MP artwork. Still don't like the head though. Still too much helmet to face. Never understood why these companies want to give us such super tiny face plates on these. And the eyes should be bigger. Heh, maybe FT will give it a shot someday.

    It's too bad the butt flap can't swing around high enough to cover the rest of the back kibble

    Very interested. And TC's black tail fins will help hide those hinges. Now just make him in his original *toy* colors, and they've got a sale.

    I think the mold looks great. I'm guessing a price of about $125-$140. I don't care if it comes with crazy accessories. Just keep the price down. No cape. No mini megs. Nada. I like the KISS (keep it simple stupid)theory. All those accessories usually sit in the box and never get used anyway.

    Does look like there will be multiple faces with the gap on his forehead.

    Heh, I've been imagining just such a G1 sequel series in my head since I started collecting MP.

    It doesn't help when none of the bots there posed standing up straight. I still think it's possible (not guaranteed) that HM might be a hair taller than MP-11 when I try to envision the bots in MT's display all standing normally and at the same distance from the camera.


    Hmm, it's not as bad as I feared, but I'd still say the headsculpt would benefit from the face being bigger and the helmet being smaller. It seems like MT likes to make the top of the helmet half of the head's overall height.
