    Speaking of accuracy and head sculpts... I'd actually like a less game-accurate head sculpt for the WfC/FoC Seekers. Something about it always struck me as slightly fugly. I think it's to do with the way the sharp nasolabial folds and long, squared-off chin interact.

    YMMV, of course.

    I don't know how, but this toy makes me like this design more than I did in-game.

    May hold out for the Takara version though. Partially because I have United WfC Megatron and Soundwave already.

    MP-11 is the dead ringer. I agree that Classics head sculpt isn't a bad representation and is pretty close and I don't fault it, as its the rest of the figure that doesn't really meet today's standards, not the face, but its not absolutely accurate.

    I for the most part pass on today's standards lol
    I love the classics seeker mold,great headsculpt ,perfect proportions,the plane mode holds together really well,love the paint apps (except the two American Starscreams) never liked those null rays too much but nobody is perfect.

    Get Takara's for game accuracy, and Hasbro's for IDW accuracy :)

    I'm amazed no one ever complained that in 2006 the Classics figures were smaller than Cybertron's figures...but then again people really really were blown away by a line like this.

    IIRC there was some grumbling about the size of Optimus Prime as compared to Crumplezone or another Cybertron Voyager, but nothing to the same scale as a similar shift now. A lot more observation that "huh, that's really small" and a whole lot less of the rage. It was a much more measured and objective analysis, though I'm probably misremembering and screening out a whole lot of the angst.
