    A military paint scheme would be ideal and evoke the Rolling Thunder heritage really well.

    I have no connection to this whatsoever, but it looks INCREDIBLE. Easily one of the coolest, most dynamic things TFC has ever done.

    I'm almost dreading seeing what they do with the colors though, specifically the clear plastic (calling it now - yellow).

    I think this may be the most aesthetically pleasing thing TFC have produced.

    Wasn't that design shown in back of one of the old crossover comics? If so, weren't there other designs shown as well? Does anyone have those images saved if I'm right and they do exist? :lol

    The tiny heads were one reason I passed on their Road Caesar. The one thing that may save my wallet on this one is that it's TFC so they'll probably do something unforgivable that makes it a pass.

    :eek:  Uhhh, how many of these did he do? Trying to ascertain shelf space and budgetary requirements in case these turn out good. :oops:

    Green is the homage to the original design, Red is the G1 color design but...

    I wonder if the baby blue version will double for ultra magnus and come with a different head, that would be awesome and maybe just enough incentive to buy two of these, considering I have yet to see a Magnus figure I actually like. This may be a purchase for me depending on how the painted figure turns out.

    Well they nailed me on Roller and Nuke-Launchers. So I'm in.

    Damn this is gorgeous.

    Maybe I'll even get a green one and revisit the Gutcruncher concept I knocked up waaaay back when for Iron Patriot

    I wasn't a big Joe fan as a kid, and I have zero attachment to whatever Joe vehicle this homages.

    I'm all about MP Primes, though. I'll buy it as long as TFC does it in red/blue Optimus colors.

    I'll happily buy a Dominator Megatron if TFC does one. Don's colors are fine, though.
