    Proportions are off. While neat, I don't think it looks good at all. Headsculpt is nice, but too big.

    Nice idea, but I'm not loving this execution.

    Some more tweaking and I might be interested in a Prime and a Magnus.

    Well, first show us a photo of what this actually looks like. The weapons block the legs in all shots, and it's not standing up straight.

    Give us the basic information first, then get fancy later!

    for now, the proportions shown are a bit off (small legs, big head) and the aesthetic of it doesn't seem to match the one on PMOP

    If a better design this would be cool for a more accurate IDW Magnus and Powemaster Prime.

    The proportions need work because right now he looks like a SD version of Optimus but other then that yes I REALLY want to see this be made especially for CW Ultra Magnus and the rumored Powered Convoy homage Magnus Prime.

    I'm all in for the concept but this execution is hideous

    Looks like he's had polio as a child and frankly I'd rather just buy a product that's consistent throughout rather than spunk money on customising the TR figures. Lipstick on a pig and all that.

    Cab is a hideous pile of loosely-connected kibble in cab mode, so no.

    I'd be interested in something like this if it had better proportions and looked/transformed like the original ginrai toy. With a more g1 looking cab.

    It needs to include a replacement part for the chest cover. It doesn't make much sense to buy a 3rd party upgrade and cover it with the same old off model chest cover.

    Needs some refinement, but I love the concept. The head is definitely oversized unless it's meant to be a replacement for the helmet. As for the "mess of parts" look in altmode, I'll hold off on judging until I see color pics, and maybe a little tweaking of the design.

    I love the idea of a proper cab robot for TRPMOP, but it remains to be seen if this is it for me.

    Now that you've mentioned the head bit I actually can see the head now being meant for replacing the helmet and the real head for the transformed cab mode is hidden inside. If that's the case that's great and I hope we'll see proper photos in the future.
