    Just saw the AAT one today. I love that he doesn't look blocky at all but the fact that it's AAT not so much. Anyone know which one of their figures they're releasing first? If that first figure is great I think it's safe to assume that they changed something and now all their other figures will be great as well.

    Doesn’t look that much better. Besides, it’s AAT, it’s probably gonna fall apart in your hands. But hey at least it looks better.

    Well, I'll probably fall for the cheapest one... :lol  I value playability over aesthetics or display features. I like to handle my figures till the infinite and go on. :lol

    Then you’ll avoid ATT’s Optimus knowing their track record.

    Do you have Challenger? It would require completely reengineering the transformation for that to change. Honestly I have been VERY rough with my Challenger over multiple years and the grill on mine isn't even that scratched up. I've literally taken it on vacations with me, posed him on rocks in the jungle, thrown him in my backpack with other figures, etc.

    Yeah I have him. Mine hasn't gotten scratched up either but I just get a little annoyed knowing the chrome is under there. Now I'm not suggesting they should redo the whole foot, just maybe if they could allow the grill to swivel so the OTHER side can be touching the floor instead of the face of the grill itself. If that makes sense...

    Nah, they could've flipped it, still keeping in the feet, but with the other side touching the ground

    It’s ok, you don’t have to worry about chrome chipping as BMB never uses chrome on any figure they’ve released, it’s going to be regular silver paint. (Which tbh is disappointing to me)

    Ok now I just remembered what’s been slipping my mind regarding this KO; will the vehicle mode come with rear-view mirrors? We’ll see soon but I hope they incorporate them in somehow. I don’t mind if it partsforms a bit. A truck, or any vehicle for that matter doesn’t feel right without those mirrors.

    OK I see what you mean. I guess that's possible. I have no idea if they've done that since none of us have seen the bottom of the feet but I wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't a priority for them.

    Of course, but it’s just a hopeful thought to put out for.
