    You could always just cover it up and call it a day.

    Gold, I want more golddddd!
    I only see it on the squares and triangles on the crotch. I think they could do more.
    And I Hope they use Red chrome for the upper body

    The white edges. 1000013214.jpg
    On MS02, the backpack juts out which messes up the silhouette a bit. This is because the back is just the unbroken roof,which is pretty lazy.

    On the FT version, that rectangle is still technically there but it's nowhere near as intrusive.

    Those really are Primes pants! I'd say from "Only Human" if he was in it but this is more suitable

    Absolutely messed up that FansToys went back in time and adjusted the sunbow model just to make me look foolish

    If you're talking about those chrome bits in Optimus's chest that are red in Magnus's, that's the bumper turned 180 with the sides bent around the matrix chamber.

    This looks really nice. I like the blocky, clean proportions all around. Makes him look solid. The gold on the pelvis is fine, it's just odd that his arm arrows are flat yellow instead of the same gold. His headsculpt is a bit wonky. Light of Peace still has the best Optimus headsculpt in the game imo

    Oh wow, thanks for telling me. That is impressive for FT. I'm very happy with my Magic Square, but I will keep an eye on this out of curiosity.

    I can't deny the FT back is cleaner, but I own the MS Prime and in person, it's nowhere as noticeable. You'd have to really go out of your way to notice it. It definitely looks worse in pictures than in person.

    See now, a little bit on small details like on or on Soundwave doesn't bug me. The problem with Blaster was that it was his whole damn chest, it was just too much.

    Looks like your chrome has some smudges on it. Mr. Clean can help.

    And to think people doubted us when we said Prime would come from this mold.

    *On my knees, bowing to the Cybertronian gods!*

    For me, this is the perfect representation. FT have really upped their articulation standards. Can be seen with their Ironhide and Ratchet designs too. Love the colours, the gold, the proportions, everything! Fuckin’ A! FT are killing it still!

    Fans toys really went full sunbow model even the way the chest is cut they copied, the shoulder hole/gap is bothering me because that is where the autobot logo goes, I hope they there is a different head sculpt comes with set, because the one on Magnus is meh.

    It's a rough edit but this should give an idea. For full toon, the arm arrows would need to be red instead of yellow, but don't have time to attempt that rn

    Even with your rough edit the chest looks better when you can’t see through it, makes the chest windows look bigger, also I prefer the yellow instead of gold and I know some people like the gold.
