    I think this is a custom. I’m interested though, I would definitely buy this. Looks like a fun project

    Well... it certainly highlights how off-center the Autobot emblem is.

    In all seriousness, put me down for "barely worth it," especially since it creates those ugly seams in alt mode. But it's admittedly impressive that he managed to make it work at all using a mold that was never designed to allow it.

    I'm pretty sure I wouldn't care about an OS version, but I'd probably pick up the regular sized one if WeiJiang were to make it.

    This would make me replace mp-12, assuming it’s not an add on. Fixes the main issue with him.

    Well assuming any mass produced version would not have an insignia, if they can make it look less gappy, a better face than official, and include a rocket pack, i may be interested.

    Head articulation, nicer hands with better weapon tabbing, and the reshaped chest. MP12 has a lot of room for improvement.

    I'd buy that as a kit, but I wouldn't replace the figure for that.

    Damn son. They could literally sell the front of the Countach as a kit (very easy to remove/replace) with a cartoony head and it'd completely fix all my issues with the mould.

    Ironhide/Ratchet have shown ppl will lap that kinda thing up. I'd be in like a heartbeat.

    Edit - I jumped the gun, it's not that simple. I'd still be all over this if they mass produced it. Would be very nice if they gave him the extra wrist articulation Sunny has too.

    Considering that Shadowfisher sold a skirt kit for MP Ratchet/Ironhide that requires a fair bit of reassembly, this seems like an easy money maker.

    They even cut through the fog-lights? Ick. I'll pass, if you have to have THAT many seams all over the front end.

    Honestly, I'd rather see someone figure out how to fix the huge gap in the doors. (I've always thought it was a design flaw, in that the arms are like 2mm wider than the side-window area)

    Sunstreaker is seam-tastic in comparison anyway, but I agree. The brute force nature of this (what seems like a proof-of-concept) custom didn't prioritize overall aesthetics, but that's an easy fix from what I'm seeing of this engineering.

    Thats an awesome kit. It fixes my biggest complaint with Sideswipe (the next being the face). I’d be all over that kit.
