    Those are the thighs. And no, and also why would you want that? I don't see a problem with how they're shaped at all, very consistent with the overall bulky look of the design.

    I'll be adding a few metallic/gunmetal accents that will bring a few details on the chest into relief and an Autobrand and it'll look great.

    Can't wait.

    mmm... not exactly the thighs
    I meant protrusion of knee and thigh details (I don't know if I'm said it correct)
    And when the leg is bent at the knee these details are very noticeable - the difference in width of the knee and thigh

    Me too. We need photos of him next to Generations Springer, Kup and maybe TR Topspin and Perceptor.

    I wonder when we will get video reviews of the final product and the full transformation.

    Where's the best price on him at the moment?

    Ah ok. I think I understand. But wouldn't the leg look way wayyyy worse if the knee pieces were narrower? You'd only draw even more attention to the knee joints themselves if you didn't have those wider sections at the front.

    And it's not like they could have made them thicker to cover the knee entirely, then you'd end up with a conflict between the very wide thigh and lower leg parts. So the knees are as narrow as they are to avoid the legs being limited in their posability range given their design. And the knees help to keep the knee jointsr narrower size from being as visible from the side and front.

    Just curious, did PSX get theirs in yet? I checked, they are still showing PO's only, but still have the April 15th release date.

    If you want to see the transformation, just watch any of the videos of moldmate Titanika.

    I believe the price is $105 pretty much everywhere.

    Honestly, there's no need. Your team looks outstanding! But, where's Impactor, lol?

    That's where I got mine.

    Oh, he and Springer aren't getting along -- again -- but Roadbuster was happy to pose with him. :D

    Great, few questions:

    1) Can you pls measure the height to highest point, shoulder pad, as well as the width

    2) is the chest shinny finish, or matte? What about the rest?

    3) as well built as Spartan?

    4) worth the 110-115$ shipped?

    Thanks in advance

    Dicamus represents everything I associate with Mastermind Creations: high-quality construction, no superfluous die-cast, an intuitive transformation that's not overly complex, an impeccably-scaled robot mode, and surface detailing that often conflicts with the character depiction in source media. My only gripe about him is the glossy chest, that stands out against the otherwise flat matte color scheme...

    ...but that's easily remedied with a quick spray of clear coat. :D

    @tekering

    Thanks, especially that clear coat spray idea for the chest.

    So if you had a choice between this and say mmc Tarn (or repaint of it), which one would you choose and why?
