    This one really really needs the IDW head.

    Last I looked (and there are several IDW source to look at, despite their minor differences), Isemnios has the IDW head.

    Maybe he's just talking about the face sculpt?

    Seeing how MMC has a g1 version of theirs(Contiuum), I would like to see Planet X do the same!

    Nay. One of the biggest attractions I have with Planet X is that they're not on the MP craze and they're also not on the G1 insanity either. Already waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many companies out there doing that. Planet X starts doing G1, I start losing interest in them as a company (yes, I know I am a minor voice regarding the G1 subject).

    Good. Hope to see others follow suite, and it looks like TCP did.

    Thing is, I think Ismenios already has the more IDW face sculpt.

    IDW’saurus seemed to primarily be an affable fop, and was secondarily a space pirate... who was mostly derilect of the Decepticon cause. So, I see him as more like Space Dandy than Harlock, over all.

    Thus, I’d caution patience since we’re not exactly hopping with updates to criticize. Maybe the face will look sharper with injection molded plastic and a glaze of paint.

    Not gonna lie: The extra wing parts really add a LOT to this guy. Really isn't making the decision which to go with any easier. :lol  Maybe this is as the IDW version and MMC Continuum for G1.

    so despite that he was showed off at TFcon Chi no one's talking about him? interesting I think he looks good though would've been nice to have protos in both forms displayed i guess my post didn't go thru as originally thought, looks good though i like the wing add-ons

    I preferred the look of the MMC version when I checked out the prototypes yesterday. I thought it looked a little bigger and I just liked the sculpt work more. However, I really like the wing pieces that were shown off for Planet X. Both figures look really nice though and it’s really hard to choose. I’ll have to check them both out again today.

    One thing I’m slightly concerned about with Planet X is all the die cast in the figure. Most of their figures don’t have much diecast, so I’m worried that there could be issues with balance or paint. I think it’s ambitious and cool for them to do, but I think it might be best to wait and see how the finished product is before jumping in on it.

    The new wing pieces are pretty dope. I'm really looking forward to getting this guy (although I'm sure there's no chance in hell they hit their November ship date).

    i think he looks great. i was hoping to see something from their star saber as well but he wasn't ready i suppose.

    i like the look of PX's version over MMC and i think he's gonna look great with their star saber. this is the version i'm going with

    PX's bot mode legs are way more comic accurate. Chunky and bulky like it should be. Bot mode doesn't have those gaps between the beast and his chest, which is more prevalent on MMC's version. And I don't like gaps, so. I think this ticks more boxes for me. But can we get a closer look at the head sculpt in those coloured renders? I still don't feel confident about the face, and the last time we seen it, it didn't really impress
