    This does look better than the KFC version, but they need to give a second toon option for the ape face.

    Sure hope that render is implying "very light grey" and not silver...

    Looks pretty wicked. My only critiques are that the Ape eyes look more like the toon, and have a more vehicon/soundwave thing going on than a flat visor look. The backpack is also a bit more on the drooping down side opposed to just being above the waist, and finally, it would be better if the eyes looked closer to how the new face/eyes on the replacement KFC apeface face looks. The rest all look like improvements, at least in show accuracy, to the KFC version. It probably won't have a light up jet console panel, but I'm sure most people don't care (though I do enjoy the feature, but it still isn't nearly as important as getting other aspects right).

    He's for their MP line, so he'll probably be MP-10 height at the very least.

    You're on my ignore list! The Devastator21 that I know has Soundwave on his profile. You are sir, are a KO.

    Wait did you too fight or smth?That's a bit petty to block someone just for a disagreement


    Anyway...really excited for what maketoys have to offer.This just reaffirms my decision that if I had to stick to one company to give me toys,maketoys will be the one.Even though mmc does IDW stylised stuff,they're QC has been dropping lately

    Holy fu** that looks good. As long as they don't do anything weird with the colours like kfc did this is an absolute auto-buy for me. Besides the other improvements already mentioned I found the kfc jet mode was far too busy; so much so it looked like a lego model. This one is way more compact and sleek-looking. So excited. Hope they do a Snapdragon then I would loose my s**t entirely. Thanks for keeping this on the agenda MT

    EDIT: The proportions in bot-mode look way better too
