    why yes that’s true, however having a base bot that doesn’t need it is nice and the add on then is optional. Since the core bot is amazing.. it doesn’t matter if I get the add on or not. With Takara like it or not your stuck with what they gave you.

    It's been years that I've been asking about this and the answers are only speculative with a lot of assumptions that it has something to do with evading the law or Hasbro but that just doesn't make sense. Transform Element is yet again pumping out more TE-01's and there are preorders for TE-03 so they are up and running. I still don't understand why the name Deformation Space was created because it could have just gone under the TE brand. Black Mamba owns the rights to these names/companies so if its them with a team of designers, why creating so many different names? If its them then why are the Transform Element, Deformation Space, and Infinite Transformation products running at different speeds? It almost sounds like these brand names are thought up and created by an individual but can't find it nor design the product on their own so they end up going to someone that can make it all happen. And of course that's just more speculation. I'd really like to know the actual behind the scenes stuff though.

    They never actually tell us so we can only speculate. Could be to stay ahead of hastak. Could be the company got in some other trouble somehow. Maybe they're doing it to avoid paying somebody or something. It's especially odd in this case because TE is reissuing a bunch of their figures at the same time that they're launching this new company. Maybe it's like that bullshit Hollywood companies pull where they pay in a percentage of profits but by moving things around they can make it so that officially there aren't any profits.

    I had both but decided to sell eventually. Ft jetfire's sculpt was phenomenal
    It probably looks great with crimson wing but articulation from the waist down was garbage. It was pretty much a deal breaker. Siege had the articulation but the sculpt wasnt great. Beside crimson wing it doesnt look right

    I might actually repaint the faces soon. Anyone know if I should strip the original paint off first or can I just paint over it?

    I think I'll try to find a Tamiya Acrylic spray can that's close in the shade of dark grey I want.

    It's already a soft sculpt. If you added another layer of paint on top of what's already there, it will look like the face was made out of marshmallow.

    And didn’t someone mention that the face that came with the Takara Starscream can fit? I’ve got the head that came with my KO MP44… so I might try a bit of blue-tac and make that work when mine comes in

    Usually The Chosen Prime gets their stuff in fast but I haven’t heard peep about this figure from them.

    I suspect this has more to do with deals the manufacturer has with certain sellers than any faults on the part of sellers left out of the deal.

    It's a slightly loose fit, you'll need blue tac to keep it on the head.

    How about some add-on wing spikes?

    I’ve also liked the look of the wing spikes…it adds such a dynamic/sharpness to the wing’s silhouette. And with the possibility that the wings have….I felt DS needed it :) 

    I just did a simple geometry for the silhouette…….nothing like what the MP-11/ Meteor mold did using a real part of the plane.

    It’s slots in onto the back wings (hollow area).

    Here’s a 360 view to show it in all angles.
    Thanks for looking :) 



    Some comparison pictures.

    So...like T-T's?

    But, yeah. Another layer of paint is only gonna make the lines and planes softer.
