    Wow. This looks utterly stunning. After the official MP Dinobot and MP BW Megatron I was doubtful that a 3rd party could produce a figure with good enough paint and show accuracy to look good with them, but Jiang Xing looks like they've actually surpassed the finish on the officials!

    If the design ensures that the paint doesn't get damaged and the QC is good, this will have a good run for toy of the year IMO.

    Looks amazing, can't help but think that those dragon eyes would be better in gold though. They get lost in the red a little as is.

    The iris of the dragon eyes are orange-ish, I agree if the orange area was the bright gold on the wings, it'd look better from the angles shown.

    No, no you do not. None of us do. For I fear that is when the magic will be gone. That face doesn't look greatly improved from those much maligned early renders. Fingers crossed..

    Why?! Even If the face is just OK, there are still enough good things on this figure to be regarded as outstanding.

    True, which is why if the face is off it will undo the majesty of what may have been achieved here. Call it a personal bugbear, for me the headsculpt is one of the most important things about a Transformer, and getting it wrong on what looks like one of the most stunning figures this year is a bit of a deal breaker for me.

    Fair enough! I personally don't care too much about the faces, I am more concerned about the engineering and the joints.
