    If you mean having the main figure the core and a 3rd party exo armor? That would be an engineering feat itself. Like a SoC Gordian or BaiKunFu?:eek:

    Honestly, even just a shell with the same sort of articulation as the original would be neat

    I prefer the original colors but this is not bad and I think it’s a good option regardless.

    The OG Pretender shell, Metalhawk especially just had a removable helmet with full face and swing at shoulder arms.

    Mark Maher on Instagram: "MMaassterFoorrrccceee!! Newly colored Legacy United Metalhawk is ready to protect the planet from any evil decepticon forces that are raiding your collection! . When I heard from @bmacatron84 we were going to package refresh Metalhawk I wanted to give an updated color treatment to him, luckily, he made it happen! In the future, I’m not going to promise this is the way we move forward, most will not get an update, but I’m very pleased this courageous guy was an exception. The only reason I think it was pushed through was just due to slight tweaks in the molded colors, they arent to drastic but man o man do they make an impact . Lets jump into the deets of this fabulous transtector! Great partial from Cyclonus and shout out to @naveskoorb for bringing it to life with none other than Takara tomy! He’s flossin his Titanium Saber along with his Rifle Wing blasters, cool connections on those to become a singular blaster. I upgraded his Shining Arrow attack with the blasters to showcase capability with the blast effects. Articulation really showcases his ability to kick some serious decepticreeps! His jet mode is just super cybertronic flavor, sleek, glossy, and ffffaaaassssttttt!! ✈️ . I was not able to find a figure that resembled Hawk to showcase his full transformation sequence. But what I can say is I really have a want to start mixing in the human element again. In my mind its taking it back to the diaclone pilots, so, sound off if your at all interested in that! Lets hear it?!?"
