    The pic I posted was from an article on what happened to vehicles from various franchises. The pic you posted from the film shows vehicles with same lines as my post, just as different from JP93. I see the same deviation from the toy to your post as I did to mine.

    It has nothing to do with your baseless, incorrect, and quite frankly bizarre assumption that I'm trying to make myself feel better about something I drive.

    Okay, we'll have to agree to disagree, which you anticipated in your earlier post.
    Wherever the subtle differences are I'm just not seeing them.

    That's fair, I'm sorry I jumped to that conclusion. I thought you were presenting the photo from the article as your example of what JP92 should look like, down to the small details.

    I'm sorry for doing that.

    Yeah, like I said before I know not everybody will be bothered by or even see what I do. Like Morpheus said: "My beliefs do not require them to" :lol 

    Here's a rough of what I see. Taken from the toy and a real-life '93 explorer (without the roof mod, but most of my issues aren't with the roof shape anyhow). If anything, I think if the real vehicle had tje molded roof it would make the difference even more obvious. I know it's not perfect, but it gets the point across in general:
    jp-compare.jpg

    Full disclosure, the JP93 side pics have a slight angle so the outline is a close approximation but may not be 100% accurate.

    I'm certainly not trying to change anybody's mind...far from it. I envy those that still like it because I really wanted to, lol. Like I said, the differences aren't huge, but just enough to turn me, personally, off.

    No worries. It's all good :)

    Overlap the 2 colored outlines for us please, so we all can see the exact problem you are seeing... other than the front section being lower in height, most other aspects don't seem to be that obvious in a toy this small?

    It's close, and the differences are even more subtle when overlapped. It's absolutely, 100% a "me" thing, lol. It's just enough that I feel uncomfortable about buying it *shrug*

    Yeah, that's what I was seeing too... if the front was beefier, it would look like my old 95' explorer, but it might have a waaaaaay bigger chest in bot mode. :thumb

    As with anything, it's all subjective. So, don't worry about it. I think what also messes up people, imho, is that the wheels seems to be smaller.

    Yeah, that didn't sink in until I overlaid them on top of each other. Now I can't unsee it, lol

    I think a discount is an almost certainty. Amazon doesn't F around if they're sitting on stock of exclusives. I can't imagine huge sell-through on this at MSRP.

    This screams $69.99 lightning deal or Prime Day to me.

    All of this is completely subjective opinion based on what I've picked up Amazon exclusives for over the past 4-5 years. Rarely MSRP. YMMV, obviously. :) 

    Look at the X-Men jet, Target can't give that thing away. I paid MSRP, and I feel like a mark.

    seeing a Ford explorer in generations just makes me want more... regular car ass cars.

    Give me a bot who turns into a honda civic. or a Ford Ranger, or a toyota camry, an early gen ford escort, or even a Mini cooper.  Bring back a bootleg binaltech line with really faithful car modes, but just as generations bots who arent a nightmare to handle. the rumor of a generations Skids makes me hopeful they keep it really faithful to the original Honda City, especailly since they secured all the lisencing for the MP. maybe we\'ll even see the motocompo with it.

    MP licensing and Generations licensing are 2 separate matters, skids is likely to be close to his original alt mode but with enough deviation to not need the license

    See i did know that licensing was different, im more hoping for something in line with like... Netflix bumblebee. I dont see a vw badge on it, but man that sure as hell is a beetle.
    Even if its a little more abstract, like ER Wheeljack. He still super looks like a lancia, just not the original 80s one... damn close though. Give me something like that for Skids and ill be pumped.

    I still stand by my original point. More generic car ass cars in generations please

    The vw badge isn't on netflix bee, but it was on his box. And Wheeljack is a great example of being just different enough to not need the license. Earth Sunstreaker and Sideswipe are good examples too in my oninion.

    He has one more on the flip out hood piece in his chest I'm pretty sure.

    Netflix BB's VW license is basically a carry-over from the Takara release.

    The hood/bonnet/trunk on the VW Bettle is basically one and the same.
