    I asked the MT rep and his response was simply "a lot sooner than you think". I took this as within the next few months. I got to handle the colored test shot at TFCon and I gotta say it was solid as could be. The outward friction joint in the hip was a little loose but other than that it felt ready to go.

    I wonder if the cockpit glass will be transparent or opaque (which will be super toon).

    They gotta get this face right because the rest is great.

    Less organic/melty/humanoid, more squared-off facial architecture... Just do it like the toon!

    Dammit, this is the part that I don't get repeatedly not just with this company but especially MT. It's like they try to f**k up the head sculpt and face on purpose. From a distance you cannot even see this guy's face. The dark silver on black just hides the face completely and there is a miserable dead red for the eyes instead of something that pops. He looks like a zombie. This is perhaps one of the most expressive of all TFs. He cannot have a dead face and its sunk into his helmet. Your changes here would easily make this a perfect face. I think I have nailed why the faces suck too. The designers are too caught up trying to make a human face instead of a cartoon robot face. That is why all of these face look alike. They obviously don't study the original bot face and instead study other ways to make a human sculpt.

    'all those people' will be a lot smaller number than you think for a Dr Wu release. You'll find the vast majority really didn't mind once something less than 1cm squared was up on a shelf.

    If something that tiny upsets you then at least you were able to fix it though. Silver lining and all that.

    his face is absolutely terrible. even MP-3's face looks better. :lol 

    I hope some other company makes a new head for it.

    The color test shot looks fantastic. he really looks like he stepped out of the 86 movie.

    Well I really want to use this mold for my seekers. I do think it looks better and more updated. Thanks very much for the info.

    obviously the same size. especially when you see it standing next to reflector. and why wouldn't it be, all these guys follow the same scale chart Hasbro/Takara Tomy do on their MPs

    If that's the case I may pass. I hoping these were about a head taller or close to it. As imo the seekers a bit small.
