    Hi, @BLNadal, @Barnabus Clank and me are designing some improvements for the MPM Prime.

    We already contacted AlienAttack to use these ideas and sketches to upgrade any neccessary part to be fixed, ie; the backpack, the headlights, and they have acepted, they'll test it soon.

    First of all, our friendo Barnabus is making sketches and drawings, meanwhile, blnadal and me are using a 3D program to re-design some bits, barnabus is going to make drawings for the backpack.

    Also, i'm changing the proportions of some parts to make more accurate to the peterbilt truck.

    All this work is based off in these altered pics:

    Here is there some teaser:

    They need to reengineer how the truck nose gets broken up to become the chest and arms so the correct portions of the flames wind up in the correct places on the robot.

    Yeah, i already know how to make that possible, even using the real headlights.

    All the updates will be uploaded here, any idea is very welcome.

    Yes, we are going to improve any thing that need to be fixed, that's why we are using those altered pics as base.

    Dang, publicly conspiring against HasTak

    you bad boys, I like that. Tell Alien Attack I won't buy their final product unless it has your autograph, BL Nadal's autograph, and Barnabus Clank's autograph on the packaging

    I'm wondering if it's possible to make accurate arms panel and to make disappear the inaccurate flames.
    Also, I know many don't like them, but I think that faux parts (like in the leader) will help to make the chest more accurate (and maybe the shoulders?).

    Yes, it is actually possible, but, they can make the nose of the truck less solid.

    This is the list of things that are actually possible:
    -The windows coming closer as the altered pic
    -The backpack as the altered pic
    -Making accurate shoulder pads
    -Flames in more correct places
    -Abs making a square form instead of triangle

    Seconded. This, the shoulders, and the silhouette/proportions (notably the chest gap and head size) should be top priority, IMO.

    And while you're switching out the gas tanks, you could aim for some taller smokestacks and a larger headache rack.

    I've started recreating the parts to scale, and modifying them accordingly. I have some very rough designs as well that I'll be refining too.

    Also liking the forearm ideas. I might add this to the designs I'll be adding.

    Yeah, i'm modeling this in the program now.

    That idea by degoisis is actually brilliant, it actually makes the panel of the forearm even more accurate, unfortunely, it makes some strange line in the nose.

    I hope Alien Attack is sincere in letting your trio provide input towards creating an improved figure based upon MPM-4, and not promising you all false ideas in the hopes of placating your concerns. Alien Attack is young, its track record shows they've only successfully released kits by this point, and I will become loyal/testify on behalf of AA's credibility (as I have done ever since purchasing Wei Jiang's M01 and their proper recognition of Black Apple) if you and your team's efforts are properly materialized/recognized someday. You all honestly have very good ideas and intentions going into this, and I wish you all the best.
