    I like the mouth plate. He looks like he should, as he did in the comics.

    I never watched G1, so I don't give a flying flip about what went on in the cartoon. ;p

    Huh.

    You know what? Maybe I will buy this. I actually like the new head, gives me extra incentive to buy this to get the newer IDW/toy look. If they worked the ball joint or whatever so it's swappable with the official toy that would be great though.

    check again

    I quite like it! The alt mode is really great! I like the prototypical double tyres on the rear axles, just like real mixers have.
    I don't mind the headsculpt being from the G1 toy/'toon either.
    What bugs me is the slight "dumbing down" of the design to match HasTak's effort. I'm talking about the elbows not having any swivel or double joint, or the fists not having opening fingers, or the waist having no rotation, even a small amount. These little touches that can make a figure much more characterful and posable. Being able to pose my Transformer figures with subtle nuances and interactions that allow emotive expressions, is really why I love Masterpiece figures.
    Still, a whole set of 6 that are as close to the G1/'toon would be awesome.

    The head looks too much like Soundwave to me, but at least it doesn't have Waspinator's butt (like the Hasbro version).

    I wonder if these new arms will match up with the regular ones. Because the PE replacements have swivvle wrists, and I'd love to put them on this.

    Again assuming that Dr Wu doesn't charge $200. I guess we should be grateful CWDevvy isn't doing this. :p

    - Hey new pictures now that's more impressive Dr Wu !
    Do you think Dr Wu could be the real incarnation of Dr Arkeville in disguise?
    Because Mixie is just another Whippy!
    Yeah nice idea but.... isn't it very experimental.
    hehe ^_^

    He does look a lot like Soundwave, head-wise. Eyes and a faceplate, maybe?

    I do wish the mixing drum was larger/longer. It's like he's My First Cement Mixer.

    But most of all… Dr.Wu needs to leave a space for a badge!!!

    Abs or chest, don't care. Just leave a goddamned space for a badge, 3Ps. Is it so difficult?!

    That's a good point...I don't know what it is with third party designers that make them feel the need to put greeble details on every space of surface area.

    Damn, that looks so much better. I never liked the official one, not only is he a newer mixer, he looks like he's masquerading as a queen bee with a huge Purple barrel ass. Him and Long Haul aremy biggest problems with Devastator. Now, i could live with him being a new Mixer, but, the big barrel ass bugs the hell out of me. And people complained about Magnus' flap...at least the flap can be folded up, MM looks like he got his ass stuck in a 50 gallon drum and it's stuck there permanently.

    I'd be WAY more interested in a replacement figure for Long Haul.

    I might not be remembering correctly, but wasn't Mixmaster drawn with a mouth in G1 Marvel, too, the same as the cartoon?

    TM2 Dinobot was talking more about the IDW comics. The faceplatted head, and the entire design of the figure itself, is a mixture of the original vehicle mode for Mixmaster, and his IDW design.

    Perhaps this picture could make it more clear? Mixmaster is in the front, so you know where he is.

    IDW All Hail Megatron = mouth
    Toy = faceplate
    Dreamwave = faceplate
