    Perspective?

    How about with the outer bicep shell the same colour as the car but with the grey underside armature?

    :D

    I think it is a little of both. The leg bots are on the back, further away so they get shrunk a little bit, but if you compare Dead End's wheels to Wildrider's in the combined mode pic they are very similar size. Also the leg bots are in full alt mode (MP carbot size) while the arm bots have their legs extended making them similar to Seeker bot mode size. Also if you are looking at Autobot Spike's digibash with the arm skeleton matching the arm bot color that could possibly be further deceiving your eyes.

    Well, I thought about that. I’m thinking if I go that route, I’d have to color the piece that meets the fist as well, but I’ll try that digibash tomorrow morning to see how she looks. I’ll post all three together.

    What I desliked the most about him was the back of his legs and that G1 Breakdown doesn't appeal to me that much aesthetic wise, but the latter is not FT's fault.

    That describes my feelings on MMC Blast Off perfectly.

    I get your point. As far as symmetry is considered I guess I should have been more specific. I prefer the distribution of the color better with the lower legs and the arms having the same color mixed in underneath the cars on the arms themselves. This breaks up the monochromatic colors of the arms. Giving better balance to the overall figure. From an artistic standpoint I feel this would be the more ascetically pleasing to look at. To each their own though.

    Spoiler can pull off such a natural looking sitting pose.

    Definitely what a 1000+ year long war looks like by year 1001
    Breakdown: "Uh, Airraid?"
    Air Raid: "What?
    Oh right, I should be on the other side... my bad, one sec"
    Prime: "hey where did my legs go?"

    Yeah, I'd much rather see Devastator and Cliffjumper first.

    OK - here we go. Third version, hybrid-style. I admit, I think I like this one ALMOST as much as doing the arms in full-color. Definitely my second pick.

    upload_2020-6-4_8-17-0.png

    Again, the full-color arm variant...

    And basically what everyone else seems to be doing......

    So here we are. Happy to entertain any other suggestions!

    Total long shot, but to me it looks like the legs each have different patterns which A.S has coloured in, so do we think there may be a colour match to the original toy line (i.e mimicing the underside of breakdown and wildrider) instead of just grey?

    The underside of his left leg on attachment (deadend in this instance - should be wildrider) has a sticking out part which matches the render A.S linked to add weight to the argument.

    ...oh THAT is an interesting observation. The digibash I started with was based on the cartoon version however, which would have been all gray on the legs. Somewhat to your point, however, we will most certainly see some interesting nods to the toy when using the OX configuration:

    upload_2020-6-4_10-37-28.png
    [​IMG]

    I want to point out, it seems Magnum, in this configuration, will sort of be a flipped-around version of what the G1 toy looks like. Curious, if they are just pegging him to the leg, if this wasn't an oversight, a limitation of the design, or perhaps we'll see something different in the final product - I AM curious.... because in doing this I noticed there is what appears to be an add-on panel to at least one of the legs to accommodate Magnum in his car mode.... that panel might either be the same gray as the legs, or perhaps colored in some way to match the vehicle..... but it might be possible that panel will be reversed in the final product to correct the visual dissonance. Lastly, it's hard to imagine they'd go this far, but to be accurate to the toy they would have to change the thigh color as well..... But I feel that might be a bit much, and not something I'm going to lose sleep over.

    This has been fun!!!


    Edit: oh! My mind is twisting a little here on this, but I realize that Magnum holds tru to his head-to-car-nose orientation, but Spoiler does not. In fact, his legs and head are in reverse orientation. While that makes Magnum’s combined mode appear flipped compared against Spoiler, it COULD be because the car orientations still match. So even if they somehow flipped both cars nose up, the patterns/colors are still wrong because Spoiler is made upside down...

    ...interesting.

    Devy is confirmed eventually. I suspect we will see something by 2022 on him. @dailianjj has already stated that they are doing all G1 combiners.
