    So alien attack is making a "true" MP movie prime?

    Glad I didn't bother with the first one. I didn't really see the need over the ones we already got, but if this one is uber accurate and is priced right - I'm in.

    Fair enough, I thought it might be good to voice it out earlier as we are talking a whole new mold. I do agree the design itself to get it working / looking right is much more important and tough question.

    Don't think I'll not return to that once people seem to be done with design inputs though ;-)

    They say they're making a whole new figure, but please stick to the basic ideas that the mpm lays out. Its a very good figure design, it could just be improved a little bit.

    I just hope they ditch the matrix gimmick so the chest can be designed to come in closer.

    Binging the chest lower and closer together is simply moving the tab in the red abdominal pieces up a little. It shouldn't do anything to the matrix chamber.

    I would have thought it was the chamber that made it too wide, but I don't have the figure in hand to analyze it. I'll take your word for it, though.

    Yeah, there's another thread running where someone diff a mod by making a small cut in those tabs, it not only bright them down, but somehow made them look not as wide. Idk, maybe I'm not remembering it correctly.

    It's a mod by lukelbs. It helps the chest significantly. The abs tab in better and it lowers the windows

    That might be lukelbs you're thinking of. His mod is excellent, but I still feel like the chest could be even closer together and into his body. That would give him a slimmer look plus compress his chest inwards and make his head appear closer forward. The head is too far back on the official. A little nitpicky, but since were talking hypothetical 3rd party figures, I figure it's alright to dream :)

    If they're making a new figure, please try to find a way to get the correct placement of the smokestacks between his shoulders and head. Even if they're fake, I don't care. Having them sit at his back just really bothers me.

    There's literally no way to do that without re-engineering the entire figure or using faux parts, which is the opposite of what we want (if we want the base mold the same). Only figure that got the placement correct is the AOE voyager/WJ OS, and that was achieved because the smokestacks are fake

    Like I said, I'm perfectly fine if they're fake. I just want them there.

    They're already doing a lot to this figure. Redesigning the back so that the stacks end up where they should be shouldn't be completely off the table, honestly.

    Nope, the only things we know is that it's an original design.

    Me and BLNadal haven't gotten more news, the only thing i know is rubber tires.

    However, i gave them some ideas for it, like the legs forming the cab and the grill retracting into the chest.

    I REALLY want them to make the legs part of the cab, something as the voyager did but better.


    If you make that, you get; accurate transformation, no backpack, bulk in the legs, no red pieces of the wheels in the back in the robot mode, you kill 4 birds in one shot.
