    God I hope not. I hope 100% of the budget goes into the toy - I don’t need all the extra crap. If they are gonna waste money on dumb stuff like a medal, I’d rather it go towards something else like a voice chip (which isn’t going to happen).

    Wrong thread to mention that name mate. No matter how you spin it, he is not a part of this anniversary ^^

    It may be the best turd in the pile but it's still a turd.

    Well the Sail Barge had the Yakface plus a commemorative silver coin thrown in as a bonus for all the backers at no cost and after everything was done.
    *shrug*
    Who knows maybe it'll be an extra thing.

    Look at all that gorgeous sculpted detail all over the robot. That's awesome. Just awesome.

    That's why I prefer my Titan Devastator and Predaking to the later Masterpiece stuff....in their efforts to achieve toon accuracy, arms, legs, and chests are just reduced to smooth blocks with no details. Gimme that Hasui level of "greeble" every time!!

    And then look at that smooth ball prototype next to it. Obviously an unfinished early version...but to me that's the perfect example of the old MPs vs the new MPs. I'm just always going to prefer that intricate linework sculpted into the toy to provide more detail.

    Yes for Unicron you need the linework because of his immense size always showing detail heck even the Armada Unicron had this lovely detailed shot.

    There's detail, and then theres this.... Hate to say it, but armada's detailing looks cluttered...WFC unicron seems to not go overboard on the face like they did.

    Yes it's cluttered but I don't really like the super smooth face of the prototype & Zeta toys Unicron. I like the linework & detailed face of something like Armada version & the 1986 Movie close-ups.

    I've never watched Armada so I'd never seen that pic of Unicron. Pretty cool.

    Megatron goes "full 'toon". It's just that his character model has all that detail.

    I haven\'t seen it talked about here, but it proabably has been so I apologize. Anyone know if they mentioned why the changed the folding panels on the legs? The earlier prototype looked to have everything on the back, which I personally would have prefered, instead of on the side.

    As opposed to this

    Super thin and flimsy compared to the thick plastic of the final prototype it seems.

    Would have thought Wonderfest may have sparked a spike in sales over the weekend but nope.
