    I sure hope so, those KFC version looks pretty strange/bad to me, I wish MT and FT can continue their work.
    But on the side line, I do think MT's price is little bit too high. I own both MT cupola ($150+) and FT Lupus ($100), I think qualities are the similar.

    That would take a very intelligent and imaginative designer to create but sacrifices in some of the alt modes would still have to be made to bring something like that to fruition.

    I don't think so, sure there will always be some kibble given the complexity of this character, unless TT decides to throw its hat into the ring but KFC have pretty much done it right for the most part, a couple of tweaks here and there, and he'll be perfect;

    Sunbow accurate pink
    Fixed face sculpt
    Smaller head would be better as it looks too big, it's either that or his torso is too small but it would be better to augment the head as it would be much easier.

    His jet mode is spot on, equally as fucked up as the toon's....just the way I like it :D ;

    It's a very good attempt, a couple of tweaks and it would be perfect.

    All the yes; The Horrocons are the greatest two member team ever. What makes the particularly horrifying when placed next to other decepts I'm not sure of . Maybe because their heads come off?

    Yep, but I don't need it and can certainly wait to see some in hand reviews and if someone does a better take on it, of course.

    ;)

    Need updates from Maketoys on this one. Hopefully at the next major convention. Speaking of that is there an upcoming convention to pay attention to?

    Do you think most of the reveals will just be on the slideshow or will they actually be in prototype form?

    MT for great blend of toon and toy, FT has to work harder for ubertoon disappearing kibble. Everybody wins. Because you and I have different tastes, it makes the world a bigger place. Or something like that. Last thing we need is for everybody to be doing the same look.

    Bit of both as always. It'll be a handful of prototypes on display and a bunch of renders. I just like seeing cool new stuff no matter what form its in at the time.

    I'd be shocked if this guy wasn't at least a proto at the con this year. MT will probably have colored test shots of both their starscreams by then too. I think Highbrow is the headmaster after Apeface so he might be there with him?

    Curious if they're going to do any more standard s1-s3 characters or continue moving on with the later era japanese stuff. They have plenty of cross dimension things they could show off as well.

    Oh, I agree. I'm just debating on whether to go or not. If it's just on the slideshow, I can stay at home refreshing TFW.
