    :lol  That's kind of how I see it, too! They should have made some way to lift that chest just a smidge.

    BTW, I would sig that, but I'm sure it would be modded and removed... and probably so will this post.

    Depends on shipping, I've seen 1600 on stuff and 2200 on others. DHL and boat are the only way to ship anything out of Japan till probably August. Will they adjust the price come December? Doubt it.

    lol they're definitely shopping some of the car mode pics to make the gap/seam at the front with the chest piece look flat
    upload_2020-5-14_18-24-48.png

    That being said, these pics do make her look better. Car mode is fantastic and I honestly don't have any problems with the backpack or the facesculpt (aside from wishing the alternate faces were more expressive). Still a pretty easy pass for now/until someone engineers a way to fix her whole torso situation with custom parts, but she's definitely growing on me.

    oh man. my first impressions of this were not good but still it may end up being my MP Arcee.

    It's refreshing to see that almost everyone agrees on the long face short chest problems. I can't believe even after FT and their add on boobies kit we still got this

    and I know I'm probably beating a dead horse when I say this is why sometimes being Has/Tak is a problem, when the fans first see a toy it is well past the dev stage and is already so damn close to distribution that it can't be changed. I'm just thinking of how its refreshing to see a 3rd p company when they come out with something in a cg render or 3d printed model and we lay into it on the forums then they come back with a revised model or the final design is actually a different toy that takes in our ...whining.

    all things considered maybe not for this toy but they could shake up the process a bit and just take criticism before releasing products from people that arent all echo chambery, it would make them at least a bit more money because you will have less people going to 3rd p if they feel like they are getting what they want AND less people like me saying...

    I'LL WAIT FOR THE KNOCK-OFF
    cause I likely will if they do that classic fix the one problem thing.

    all standard hasbro bashing aside isn't the angle of her chest completley movable? it all separates from the upper section of the hood where the autobot symbol is if her chest just hinges down from the real hood to make a mock hood why not just lengthen the mock hood/bra-straps part having a longer, less abrupt angle? I mean we have to see her all fan out in transformation to see if that will work but... I dunno the slightest remodel and a new faceplate and this seems fixed.

    and I need my perspective ruler cause she is already looking less long in the face from the first photos IMO.

    c'mon Has/Tak I laughed at that add on bust kit too much to buy one now!

    They just really need to stop showing us pics. It\'s like they are trying to force us to think it\'s good when it isn\'t.  The top of the chest needs to be a very gradual transition into the shoulders but instead it\'s a sharp angle that stops where the heart is and the neck is like looking at a tribeswoman\'s wearing one of those elongated neck ring things.  I\'ll say it again as I hope it\'s true that a 4th party with FIX the design flaws or at least a 3rd party will fix it with add on parts???
