    I did the face swap with MP-28 and it really makes Movie Hot Rod pop! ... kinda sucks I have to diminish an otherwise great figure in MP-40, but I’m tempted to double dip at some point given how much I love this version of the mold ... just wish the visor was blue like 28 but variety is the spice of life I guess ... the difference in visor colors has no basis in the toon I assume ...

    The only thing I actively dislike is the windshield which just looks garish to me. I never flip down those visors so I don't care about those.

    But look at the subtle shade of grey on his hands, the lighter orange on his thighs, and the yellow and orange on his chest. Those are really, really nice.

    Love it! Those Tamashii effects would be so cool here to show the movement of Magnus's cab ;) 

    Such a posable bot :thumb

    I just love these little guys.

    A difference which I have noticed is that the thicker part on the shoulder used to be on the back, but has now moved to the front.

    [​IMG]

    The disadvantage of this change can be seen below. The arms don't sit flush on the new Targetmaster. :confused: 

    [​IMG]

    A few pages ago I asked if anyone modded the old Targetmaster to fit into the hands of MP-28 and MP-40, but I did not get any reply, so I gave it a go myself. :D 

    [​IMG]

    MP-28 and MP-40 can now hold the old Targetmaster fine as well.

    [​IMG]

    With their hand closed...

    [​IMG]

    ... and with their hand open.

    [​IMG]

    I shaved the back of the handle which was sticking out off and I shaved the tabs which peg into the hands a bit to make them thinner and now it fits like a charm.

    [​IMG]

    Below the difference in handles post-operation. ;)

    What's funny to me is that TT did a redeco and a rerelease of a Targetmaster based on episodes that aren't canon in Japanese continuity.

    I didn't like the deco at first, but now I'm warming to it. It doesn't look so bad in other pics.

    wow, that new darker red/magenta looks spectacular compared to the first release. The contrast even makes his awful plywood-rectangle chest less-offensive then it was on the first version.

    Am I the only one who’s suddenly become a big Hot Rod fan all of a sudden?

    You know, I’m liking this more than I thought I would. Now I’m debating buying it.
