    I would totally buy an accessory pack for these two. Chromedome needs more faces! Rewind needs more hands!

    Pro tip: do the fix in vehicle mode if you can. After I posted that, I went to transform the figure and realized the wheel didn’t line up with the booster/shoulder notch piece and had to disassemble again and realign. Not difficult, just annoying.

    Cybertron Surgery does one, I’ve no idea of the quality or scale though. I’d kill - well, main maybe - for a Lost Light ship that opened up into Swerve’s bar and/or the bridge.

    Got these guys, ultio, and tortorus for christmas. Mnemo and motif are definitely my favorite MMC figures as of recently. They are so unique compared to the rest I own.

    Maybe someone can make gun connector for Mnemo (for alt mode / backpack). Can probably be used to carry/attach Motif in alt mode.

    I finally got mine in and I have to say that this is probably my favorite MMC release for the year. Chromedome's sculpt might simply be the most dynamic sculpt MMC has ever done. He just looks good performing a variety of poses. I found the transformation fun although it does not break new grounds. Rewind too is a good bot for this size, although I wished that they'd been able to hide his fists better in alt mode.

    Anyway if you've only got money for one MMC Reformatted release this year, then this is the one you should get. I feel strange saying that since we also got the final two DJD members this year, but yeah it's been a strange year.

    I can't put my copy down, I keep picking it up and reposing it. I love this bot. It may be my pick for bot of the year.

    Just got them. I don't know how but they were still sitting on my porch after 3 days. I must have the best neighborhood in the country. Working on transforming now to see if mine also has the tire defect that needs modification.

    FYI : The tire defect is not uniform across all copies. My copy is perfect.

    I'm pretty sure mine is free of the defect as well, they feel perfectly fine to me.

    I don’t know if I’d say full blown defect even. It’s just a screw that needs to be reseated. That said, it originally had the issue on my Mnemo’s right shoulder, and I fixed it. After a few transformations, the left shoulder started doing the same thing (same fix).

    My copy arrived today unexpectedly! As someone mentioned previously, the box is tiny! The figures look fantastic in hand. I can't wait to fiddle with them tonight. It's a nice endcap to my acquisitions in 2020 that began with MMC's Ravage.

    Okay.... so am I nuts or is there no actual way to orient the handhold in a correct anatomical way? It being unpainted makes it twice as hard to figure out.

    Might want to show pics so that people can chime in as to what you're trying to do.

    It's simply the way the hands are interlocked and where the ball pegs are I think Rewind would need to be as tall as Domey for it to look natural. Rewind needs to hold his arm in the air and then the hands for both of them are twisted in a way a real life wrist wouldn't bend. Unless I'm missing something...

    This is the right way to use the joined hands... Make sure to engage the butterfly joint and rotation of the shoulder for Motif.

    This is the wrong way...

    Also made use of the leg flaps as heels for Motif.

    BTW, anybody have pics of Motif with Furor/Riot/Enmitus? I would have taken pics, but unfortunately, my stuff is put away, due to the holidays.
