    They seem to like doing this to the swords. They are also wide as hell, they look like straight from World of Warcraft!

    The insides of his arms are going to be red in the final product right? :confused:  Because the current grey made him looks like he has pieces of cardboard stuck on his arms.

    Man that truck mode is a bust. Inaccurate flame details, unpainted and half painted parts, horrible front windows (are the designers blind? do they not see?), gaudy proportions(extremely large wheel covers, too thick window covers and mirrors, small fuel tanks and too short smokestacks, too large canisters, extremely large fillets on corners)-the mark of an inexperienced designer (immature, gaudy design), and it barely holds together. Looks like a damn (cheap) ko, nothing is tabbing together like it should, like it will fall apart any minute. I really don't see this miracle of design that everyone is drooling over, it is a solid C team effort. For me it's more like a sidegrade at best than an upgrade.

    We don't know how it holds together till they are releasing the final product and not judging a test-shot copy from a guy.

    That's my debate right now. Should I sell my weijiang and get the new MP? It'd be good to have an OP that is MP-level AND turns into the truck from the first movie. I don't have shelf space for both unfortunately. I LOVE the size and heft of weijiang commander though... never thought we'd have so many good options for accurate and complex movie OPs! Just thought we'd get millions of repaints of the 09 toy, which I'm over at this point.

    Wow, I look at this guy and all I can hear is, “Sam, fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing." I'm glad I cancelled my MB-11 pre-order to wait for this.

    Somewhat true, but the powerpoint presentation pictures were even worse than these in-hand pics. It feels rushed out the door.

    The biggest issue this will face is 'Buster Prime MTB Prime didn't have enough problems.'

    Yes this looks better in a lot of ways. Esp the fact it doesn't have panels hanging off the forearms. If you don't have a Buster or a ROTF type mold already this is a day one buy. But I find my self thinking that If I replace my jetwing prime with this, 6 months later I probably won't notice the difference, and would probably miss the jetpack.

    He can't have both if he can't afford them both. That's the problem I'm facing :lol .

    In my case it's shelf space.
