Is the white part painted or is it just white plastics?
Looks like the same white parts are painted and unpainted as on the original MP-17. This means his hands, the flaps above his feet, and the inside of his legs are still unpainted probably.
Also, because his mirrors are a kind of plastic that doesn't accept paint they're also bare white plastic. For some reason the barrel of his gun also appears to be unpainted plastic, even though that was painted silver on the original. Weird choice.
Still no idea what the hell is going on with the Autobot insignia either. Does that not bother anyone else? Hope this is a test-shot or something.
Still keeping my original.
It’s confounding they used the newer symbol. This release is a bit underwhelming. The elbows and the neck plate are black and the lack of paint on the gun barrel? Doesn’t make sense
Honestly, looks the same to me just bigger
It’s the same toon style logo as on all the other plus editions and new generation masterpieces
Nope new one has a movie autobot logo
the pointy/squinty eyes on the movie logo same as the new prowl
I do believe that the lighting in those photos is making things look a lot less attractive.
As for the logo ...not sure what's up, but I can overlook it Ithink.
As someone who loves G1, and can't be bothered at all by Bayverse, surprisingly, I'm not too upset about the logo. But I'll reserve final judgement until it's in hand.
Isn't it just the cartoon insignia? Looks the same as mp12+ and the like to me.
I think it's just the bulge in the hood that's throwing things off in these pictures.
I think you’re right. Comparing it to the original it looks wider at the top
I double-checked and the + releases all seem to have the g1 style insignia.
Hmmmm, that unpainted barrel is annoying.
Sideswipe at least has the cartoon style symbol with the narrower eyes and wider forehead crest.
As does red alert +, sunstreaker, the inferno and grapple toon chests, and the upcoming hound.
Looks awful imho... However if anyone wants to stay pure to the cartoon model and wants to sell those awesome shoulder launchers then pm me. :-D
MP17+ in toon colours definitely a must get for me
As @JoshFinn has shown, it's the movie logo.
Honestly I couldn't care less about the shape of the head crest or how narrow the eyes are, what bugs me is the 'angry' eyes. Never liked that about the movie logo, and it has no place on a G1 MP. Which intern was put in charge of this release?
Might have to parts swap between 17 and 17+. Unless I can 'fix' the movie logo by trying to rub out his eye ridge to make it horizontal.
They got the insignia right on the coin packaging:

Our very own @TCracker's facebook page. TC, can you confirm this Bay logo on your 17+? Can't wait to see your pics man!

Bare cream plastic and movie-insignia aside, he still looks fucking sexy
I dunno man, the pictures you just posted pretty clearly show it's not the movie insignia.
At least, to me.
