    I love power baser, but he doesn’t have the same sort of sculpted details that the mastermade figures have.

    I get what the member you were responding to was saying. Chiba proportions aside, these guys have an design aesthetic that no other company is touching. That aesthetic would be unique whether the figures are chibi or not.

    Fair enough - I don't own any MM figures (though this might have to be my first, especially if there is a mini Ginrai figure on the way). It was just a thought.

    If you look at the previous grey shots, the head there is much bigger. The most recent one may actually have their Statue Series head on it.

    I think the godbomber armor is the equivalent of the bust/statue release. It will have the smaller head while the normal mode has the large head.

    The SD head is as big as the chest cab. The latest pics does seem to be the non SD head as @Grievlocke and @IronMagnus mentioned.

    Does anyone think we might not get a bot/trailer for the Godbomber parts? Just armour up parts?

    My guess would be the godbomber parts recombine into a bust statue.

    I'm leaning just an Apex Armor that attaches to a bust. We might get it as a trailer, or trailer mode out of it, but I wouldn't put money on that.

    It looks like the SD head is on a plank that mounts over the cab. So I'm curious if the non SD head will be an optional quick change or dedicated install. Also curious if the SD head won't work for GG mode. The shoulder guns are right there.

    I don't like Power baser coz he's just slavish G1. Plus I'm a legends scale collector mainly.

    Is it really so unreasonable to say that I love Diabolus Rex, but don't want it coz it doesn't scale with my existing collection?

    You can like MOST of a thing without being required to like the entirety of the thing.

    That's different to me. Scale is one thing but saying you want it but bigger and completely different proportions is saying you don't want it unless it's very fundamentally changed. Makes much less sense to me.

    Yeah, sorry I didn’t really make my point very well.

    another example is their Odin, I LOVE that design. It’s the perfect example of taking an old design and updating it to the modern age while still keeping the ‘signature’ of the character. I love the sharper details, the jet pack/power fists, the GN-beamsword, the improved alt-mode, the decals, the articulation, BUT...

    he costs £150, which I could do IF it just had the smaller head. BUT if I want the smaller head I have to pay another £50 for a bust that I simply don’t want and would never display, just to get the head I want, and that pushes it too far over what I’m willing to pay for an out of scale representation of a character.

    If they DIDN’T offer the option of non-chibi heads, it wouldn’t be a topic for me, but because they do it feels like when a video game is sold half finished and then makes you buy the DLC to actually get a complete experience.

    does that make more sense now?

    Yes it does! Thank you for clarifying. It's like they gave you something you wanted in theory but didn't go the distance so you're left frustrated about something you wouldn't have even needed to begin with. I get that.

    Looks like you were right @Requiem Prime !

    Entire chest and head swaps with the bust? What about fellas like me who want the SD head plus the armour together?

    That is AMAZING. And that vehicle mode. Weird but definitely amazing. Shame they won't do a black repaint based off previous releases
