in the blue window in his chest.
I believe the term used is "panelly gappy mess", but agreed those people will be strangely silent in this instance or claim mass shifting.
My bad. First Video I think. Hope it helps for those that don’t have him yet.
It's possibly because we haven't really seen dynamic posed shots apart from the images from FT. All we're seeing from in-hand pics is straight up and down static poses. My hope is that when we see some dynamic poses he'll look a lot better.
For me, the problem with the legs is from the door windows not folding around the back of the calf. Almost every other Lambo mould we've seen includes a hinge to allow the Countach's windows to fold down a bit. Spoiler seems to have solid moulded windows. A hinge (green line) to allow them to fold around and close off the back of the calf would make the lower legs a bit less bulky and tidy up the rear of the legs a bit.
What happened to the blue headlights? Are the taillights still yellow?
Yep definitely some lazy work there.
What? Seams in alt mode are now a bad thing?
I mean, seams are necessary. If you don’t have seams in alt mode, the thing doesn’t transform! MP Megatron has seams! Roadking’s trailer is seam-tastic! (Personally I think toys with lighter coloured decos are going to have more obvious seams than darker ones.)
I follow the MMC Bruticus thread and there are a few people who have labelled that set ‘CHUGsterpiece’ for many reasons - size, cartoon accuracy, handfeel, paint apps, and so on.
But hey, if you want to brand a whole load of people as hypocrites because you have a hang up about seams, you go right ahead.
I see we’re in the gap between release and arrival where people nitpick a handful of early photos to death and declare it to be a piece of poorly thought out, badly designed garbage.
Looks fine to me. I hope mine ships soon.
quick sideswipe comparison
You missed my point but that’s ok.
I don’t mind discussion, that’s what we re here for. I don’t get people that drop in make a comment about how much they dislike it and then disappear. It’s not about disagreeing with me so maybe wipe the tears from your eyes and read things clearly?
If I skip my diet in the real world and just buy this toy, will that give me some kind of cred at least??
car mode looks great.
Buying something just for vehicle mode is such a huge waste of cash.
robot mode leaves a lot to be desired for me. it's also just too huge. in my opinion. To those who chose to get it though, I hope it works out.
I've seen the videos but all have missed that this HAS to have an ab crunch:
Interesting transformation. Like how all three versions transform in a completely different way. From a design standpoint, the red hood must me a pain in the ass since it really disappears in the toon robot design and is only referenced by the face color.
Both of us that did videos can't find where this ab crunch is even while transforming and everything is open the ab crunch didn't present itself. Not sure if it's like jetfire or if it's when you unlock the front half. But we were talking about that earlier.
Nah,your point was clear:
“If you don’t like it move on.”
“We can’t enjoy the good without harping in the bad”
You can try and spin that however you want and say you don’t like people to comment and disappear (even though that’s exactly what you told them to do) but it was obvious to all that you like the figure and didn’t approve of people criticising it.
Like I said: allow discussion. Tell us what you like and respond constructively to those who tell you what they don’t like. That’s all we need.
I see a pin joint on his waist on the first video when you separate his backpack and chest. Maybe it needs to be moved with force.
Seeing this Spoiler I'm glad I only bought Roadking, which was my first intention anyway. Spoiler looks OK, but not 100 bucks OK, to be ending up as a leg filler.
Someone already asked & I didn’t see a response so I’ll ask again , the blue head lights / yellow tail lights .... where’d they go ?! Idk... the renders look so much better then the finish product . It’s like Roadkings outline all over again . So what we see in renders is not exactly what we’re getting . I’m a little annoyed .
by the way will work in the combined mode already very thin and light.
