    Haven't seen this pic in this thread, so I stole it from ShowZ, so Jazz can kick the the living shi* out of all the nay-sayers (if there are any :D )

    Cool! So it looks like the legs are a universal joint with a built-in front skirt like SS86 Hot Rod.

    I did about two years ago… I have absolutely NO regrets. I was literally able to buy every figure I already owned in my MP collection and still had money left; I also love how legends look with titan class bots. You can get creative with displays in ways MP could never hope to accomplish. Come my friend, come to the dark side.

    I love that unicron is animated as like the size of a skyscraper. The animators are orders of magnitude off from him being a cattle ranch, let alone a planet.

    Which is even funnier when you read the design notes - one of the spheres in his ring was meant to be the size of the earth.

    Just a few crappy examples of what we do in the dark side:

    True, but there's not really any way to know whether this is a first draft/rework/final proto/whatever. Might well be something that's been addressed by now, but eh, we'll see. Either way, it's an absolute cracker of a design, and a good sign that MS are getting a lot better at their aesthetics.

    So Double Dagger released a new (and very cool) video on YouTube, with a surprise cameo of prototype Jazz. Here are some screen grabs for y'all. Nothing special, but since MS is giving us the silent treatment since releasing Scrapper and Mixmaster (except for deformed arcee....), it's something at least...

    Mmm, plastic but no paint. Still some way off. Good squat there, though :)

    If only they could have lavished their previous (Autobot) car bots with this kind of love. Actual curves, no giant gaping holes (up front and center at least). I'm really looking forward to this one!

    I didn't have much hope but part of me was hoping the windows would be clear. Oh well - looks great other than that one glaring omission.

    He's shaping up to be a really cool figure, can't wait.

    Clear windows would be even better, but I also dig the painted windows for toon likeness :thumb 
    Maybe in the future for a metallic version ;)

    They do have precedent replacing an early figure, and if they look this good I would not hesitate to buy replacements.

    Looks good. The head looks the right size as well. It's shoulders stick out a lot to the sides making its arms look too far off from it's body, but this is it's bot mode so it's all good. Hopefully the alt-mode has translucent windows like NA is doing with their Optimus Prime/Ultra Magnus figure. Articulation is there and then some! Hopefully the same can be said about the price. Well done, Magic Square.

    Nice to see everyone's beloved car-walk mode is included as well :D
