    The more I see the truck mode the more I agree with @chchchch that even though they could've engineered the thinner truck windows without a problem (as @Liampope pointed out), it just looks right in truck mode with squarer windows.

    As much as I love the toy-accuracy of the shape (and real-world accuracy too, I s'pose), it's something I did want from MP-10.

    Now, if they want to go all out on the + release and make the truck windows real-world and toy-accurate, I'd be more than happy with that. They could even make the headlights rounded, too.


    Let's not forget though, that the truck that Teletraan I scanned for Optimus Prime had rectangular gas-tanks and headlights:

    And squarer windows ;)

    I feel the designers must have thought so too based on them not going with the preliminary design shown in the book scans. He just looks, I don't know, friendlier to me with the square windows, ha. I'd also be all for the toy repaint narrowing them though with some re-tooling!

    And no silver stripes! *ducks for cover*

    Yeah, it's about friendliness! It's kinda like how 29+ looks meaner than 29.

    Yeah, my shipping to Ireland was ¥4,242. Quite pricey actually.

    These pictures need to be on everyone’s signatures.

    I’m sorry to say, and mean no offense (I was on the same boat a while back, after all) but what your country charges as far as taxes/vat/fees and some other form of legal stealing, is not TT’s fault.


    This is NOT $450.
