    This looks perfect. The simpler look works with the existing aesthetic instead of against it. Will DEFINITELY be getting this set now. Well done!

    If you're going to do a set at all for Bovis- which arguably you should, at least in this fans opinion- this more conservative approach is best. Great work, btw.

    The new set looks perfect, not as busy looking, doesn't distract from the figure and the bull head looks much better.

    SCORE.

    Now I just have to decide if I'm going to dive in on them

    maybe, give some color to the figure, i mena, the only yellow i can see in the whole figure is the face, maybe if you give some more yellow, that would make it look a little bit better
    i dont like the figure, but i do like your work, i would hate to see it just go to the junk
    Edit: i know, the set is almost finished and redesigned(for good) but still think the figure needs a little bit more yellow

    I like that a lot, tempted to buy it---but will there be other options for the chest insignia? I'm just not liking the black background/surround. I really think just a simple "all silver" background/surround for the insignia would be best. Or go with like red foil surrounding it.

    A Fortis set in this style will look *really* nice I think---and will provide a nice opportunity to help differentiate the two figures. Make Fortis' stickers similar, but not identical (in both shape and color-patterns).

    I agree on all these points, the rest is great!

    I like the pattern
    it mimics rhino skin but maintains mech look
    the orange pops
    good distribution provides depth
    good job
    lose the knee crosses

    yeah but this isnt exactly a faithful reproduction of the g1 character instead of reimagining, so a little bit of yellow details would make the figure pop little bit, since the only part with yellow is the face, i think that it without any yellow in the whole figure except for it, looks weird, but is just an opinion

    I dunno; I don't really see more yellow as necessary to highlight anything or make up for any "yellow imbalance". Where would you suggest such a sticker go?

    The revised set is a lot better, just by cutting down the busy-busy and going with the riveted plate-metal G1 Pred look.

    I'm with David in thinking that the faction logo could lose the black background. It's too small a space to work with to be so fussy.

    I'm going to hold off a purchase decision until I can see the sticker sets for all the Feral Cons and how they look in individual plus combined mode.

    seems like not enough circuitry, and too much shiny chainmail-like armor on the beast mode face and the top leg sections. it looks nice, but in my opinion, doesn't reflect the details for a figure like this.
