    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.

    I think the great seeker debate is moot ... this is a 1-off QC willing much like Despotron, I keep MT separate bc of its distinct aesthetic so I'm not trying to complete a MT seeker squadron anytime soon ...

    Depends if these (all 3 decos) are under $100 USD.

    I dont see them bigger than MP SS. Or filled with more die cast metal. I think $140 SRP is to high...

    I'd like to buy a TC and SW to match my KO SS. If not, more cheap KOs for me...

    Sad to see that after all this time they don't have a colored sample yet.


    Also, no Galaxy Meteor? That makes me sad.:(

    Awesome, thanks bud!


    I really wish they would display this guy next to his G1 counterpart so I can see if they'll both be the same height or not. I'm honestly hoping that this version is a little bigger than G1 Screamer is.

    I think TCP did have one next to the G1 version, I don't think I got a pic though.

    Don't expect that to be less than $150.

    Every time I see a MakeToys RE:Master figure I'm more and more convinced that they've got either Hasui or someone who he trained directly as their designer. Despotron p much sealed that idea for me, though; it's a better counterpart to MP-10 than the official MP Megatron.

    I recall the earlier render showed SS shoulders more concaved like the G1 toon?
