    Is there a replacement head or face for the figure?

    No, but if you buy Skywarp or Thundercracker, you'll get some nice lighter faces that will fit Meteor as well.

    You can use mp11. The balljoint is very close but it'll probably need popping off for transformation:

    After seeing that pics, I kinda wonder if Takara is going to do a "+" repaint of Soundwave with white instead of silver.

    Finally pulled the trigger on this guy today. I hope I get a week or two for my bank account to recharge before his buddies show up at BBTS.

    Lower leg covers/vents, 3D printed using ABS, 0.30mm nozzle and 0.50mm layer height. Adds some detail to lower legs
    STL file is on Shapeways, search term MTRM-11

    Rear folding flap has moving parts, requires pins/assembly, it's not something that can 3D print as a finished part.

    Same here. I am ready to order 6. That is such a kick ass mod. Almost made me forget they left the back of the wings off.

    Finally got this guy from Baba during the last 20% off sale. The nitpicks that I read online and saw in images immediately disappeared in hand. What an awesome bot. I haven't transformed it yet, but I'm excited to put it through the paces. Cannot wait to get Lighting and Skycrow (just shipped). Very happy with this purchase and I'm happy to finally move on from the MP-11 mold for the big three.

    Can you post a close up pic of MT Meteor with the light face?

    It's back in the cabinet with the dark face back on. Is a close up good enough? The shadows make the face slightly darker too

    If ppl can print out and build full Magnus armour I'm sure they could cope with a flap build :)

    Been super busy these past few weeks, but this guy turned out much better than expected! Customized with 2x Red SMD eyes and 2x Warm White SMD for cockpit/chest. Used modified KFC Hot Rod hands and also sculpted a new face with an x-acto knife. Did a quick mod to Sunstorm's coronation kit to make it fit as well.

    Amazing work again. For the KFC hands, was the mod just cutting away at the join so the hands fit?
