    Yeah was really hoping for at least some colour. This has been a long time in the works. He was announced around the same time as Despotron wasn't he? Like two years ago I think? Edit: Yep, TFCon 2015.

    Come on MT. Put some paint on that son of bitch and give us a hard ETA on it already...:banghead: 

    As much as I'm exciting to get OS, JF, Stunticons, Headmasters, etc, this is got to be the most painful and longest wait I've ever felt for any product(s).

    Just the noticably visible hands.

    Still, MT's bot mode is so far ahead of Takara's that it's no contest. The jet mode would have to be Universe Silverbolt bad for me to have second thoughts.

    I presume you were being sarcastic but it does actually look better to me in alt mode. It doesn't have that chunky robot area in the side profile and looks sleeker but the original isn't bad by any stretch imo.

    Takara F'd up the jet side profile when they made the changes from MP-03 to MP-11. The original slimmer legs and knee pads made for a damn nice F-15 side profile.

    Howling Meteor's jet mode has issues (tiny vertical stabilizers, bot boobs sticking out, feet hanging out), but it's a minor nitpick if it eliminates leg kibble and giraffe neck in bot mode.

    Just fix the head, please.

    I know what you mean. It's less noticeable on the OS seekers in mp03 mold colors.

    Looks better than the official MPs (which I find much too fiddly and have too many little parts!). :eek:

    Man, i dont want to buy another set of seekers. But this one looks stunning. Not sure 'bout the face, but it's a minor complaint. Can't wait to see how much paint MT will throw on this guy.

    TBH, at this point it is sort of silly to keep saying "it looms better than the official". Of course it looks better than a 10+ year old mold, if it didn't, then what is the point? lol.

    But the question really is, is it THAT much better in order to basically make those that spent almost $200 a pop on the originals? Personally, I'm not seeing it.
