    Ah I see. Interesting.

    So it is confirmed that Rewind is gonna be packed with him. Which is good to know. But that’ll be cool since we get a cassette redeco with each other redeco.

    I think it could be worth a try to narrow the inner sides of the body a little, since just a small head enlargement would be visually significant. But I'm not designer or engineer, either.

    I know I'm generally pretty alone on this one, but I'd actually like a larger head even if it would need to be swapped for transformation. My bots spend 99% of their time in robot mode, so it wouldn't be much of an issue, and I'd rather have that primary mode look as good as possible, rather than being compromised for the alt mode.

    So a figure as large as Calidus packed with another smaller figure, and it's $80? I'm guessing that's not going to be the final price.

    My bet is that they are available as singles for $80 and whatever Rewind would be AND there would also be a 2-pack with the hands accessory.

    Hmm. Possible. They were gonna do something similar with their MP Onslaught. But they canceled that idea so I’m not sure if they’d do it again.

    Rewind will be packed with Eject.

    No Eject in IDW? Tough.

    He might’ve been in one panel, maybe one.

    Spring loaded ears that fold in to fit in vehicle mode but pop out to the right position for bot mode?

    Exactly! It’s worked beautifully for the Knight Morpher seekers since 2012.

    That’s a pretty smart idea. But may be worrisome if there’s potential paint rubbing.

    Forgot about the knight morpher head. Interesting. I'll keep that in mind.

    I definitely think the spring-loaded ear portions are a good idea. Will still work for transformation, and will look more proportioned in bot mode

    For what it's worth, the other two figures I can think of offhand with spring-loaded ears are the MP-11 Seeker mold and Universe Sunstreaker. And I'm positive there's at least one or two more. Maybe one of the versions of Greatshot? I can't remember.

    This figure looks really nice, though. Great work! I'm really excited for it, especially if it comes with Rewind.

    Also, I can't help but think the head size will look better when it's all colored. The head will presumably be brighter against a darker body, making it stand out more.

    +1 for spring loaded ear, or maybe one other idea is what DX9 Henry did i.e. collapsible ears.

    Anyway, I will still most likely buy this regardless.
