    Agreed 100%. I think these will be the closest we get to toon accurate, but still having some compromises. I'm all in, especially if they do the conehead seekers, Takara's conehead seekers just don't look good to me, and the official OG seekers don't quite hit the mark.

    How clean does that jet mode look? Hardly any robot kibble hanging off the bottom. (TFCon photo from Daimchoc facebook)

    MP-10 got a remould from MP-01. This is what Takara should have done with MP-11 instead of a 25% remould of MP-03.

    Yeah was really hoping for at least some colour. This has been a long time in the works. He was announced around the same time as Despotron wasn't he? Like two years ago I think? Edit: Yep, TFCon 2015.

    Come on MT. Put some paint on that son of bitch and give us a hard ETA on it already...:banghead: 

    As much as I'm exciting to get OS, JF, Stunticons, Headmasters, etc, this is got to be the most painful and longest wait I've ever felt for any product(s).

    Just the noticably visible hands.

    Still, MT's bot mode is so far ahead of Takara's that it's no contest. The jet mode would have to be Universe Silverbolt bad for me to have second thoughts.

    I presume you were being sarcastic but it does actually look better to me in alt mode. It doesn't have that chunky robot area in the side profile and looks sleeker but the original isn't bad by any stretch imo.

    Takara F'd up the jet side profile when they made the changes from MP-03 to MP-11. The original slimmer legs and knee pads made for a damn nice F-15 side profile.

    Howling Meteor's jet mode has issues (tiny vertical stabilizers, bot boobs sticking out, feet hanging out), but it's a minor nitpick if it eliminates leg kibble and giraffe neck in bot mode.

    Just fix the head, please.
