    I like the crotch plate, the screw holes on him now drives me nuts. Not sure how I feel about the feet

    If nothing else, they get points for using the feet as helipads in base mode. That's cute. Can't tell if the crotch plate detaches or if they just forgot it in the base-mode render

    Please tell me those ratchets are for the elbows!

    Oh wow, that looks excellent all kitted up. For those in the know are the feet the same color on both Hasbro and Takara versions?

    It looks like it just plugs in over the regular piece (probably attaches with posts to the screw holes). See no reason why you would have to detach it.

    It's not in the base mode render (the last image Daim posted). That's all I was commenting on - it's also possible the helicopter pads (from the feet) don't fit w/the crotch piece in place. I'm not concerned either way - just curious

    New ratchets are welcomed, but I'd like to see how the feet attach in robot mode.

    Ankle tilts, awesome! The Metroplex mold sorely needed those from day 1 and I'm glad to see DNA making them for Fort Max. Speaking of which, I wonder if they could make a set of ratchets and white feet for 'Plex like they did with their hands.

    My assumption is much like how the X2Toys kit for CW Megs.

    I look forward to buying this when I'm 40. It looks great. Anything is better than that front-butt crotch that fort max has.

    Yeah but it doesn't help that I have that heavy PE Master Sword with the unnecessary diecast.

    Is the issue with the elbows or biceps?

    Looks great but I would still really rather have a new set of lower legs, I know they would be pricey but I think metroplex's just don't quite work for max even with the retoolings.

    Fingers crossed that the next Fort Max kit we see adds a bigger tower.

    I think I'll get these when they come out. They'll add a little extra omph to the base mode, and ankle tilts are always fun.
