    If you look closer it does have metallic fleks in the paint.

    I agree with the first part of this statement. 'm good with the parts forming hood but I would like to see bot mode storage for it. I don't think a reversible hood would work here. I think it would overcomplicate the engineering. This is a pretty clean alternative.

    It's definitely more show-accurate than Arkose and it's probably more solid but IDK if I actually think it looks better objectively. Arkose's vehicle mode looks WAY better and the robot mode looks better in certain ways, notwithstanding being less show-accurate. Since I'm not a huge fan of the character, I don't know if the improvement is enough to make me trade up. Maybe though

    I know this is an early rendition but he seems to lack that Fantoys flare even for a G1 accurate toy. Maybe some clear plastics...

    Yeah I'm with you. It looks good. Very good. I'm just not sure I prefer it over Arkose.

    One thing's for sure, it looks 100x better than the first proto shots as it's lost the barrel chest but I'm not sold on where the ab crunch is. That Warpath though. Pure win.

    I think FT Dunerider crushes Arkose. And I liked Arkose until I had him in hand. The reverse bending deer/dog legs at the knee joint in bot mode are a huge turn off. Not the most stable to with pose either. The way the back bumper attaches in alt buggy mode was janky AF. I didn't like the thin plastic roll cage and the M50 machine gun for bot mode was another WTF idea.
