    I believe it's just the lighting.

    How we perceive reality depends on the lighting. Bend the light then the images become invisible etc etc. So yes, depending how the image is processed.

    It's never gonna not look bizarre how lowered her chest plate is, or how elongated her neck is, I can't decide which is off. Such a strange error on an otherwise mediocre figure. I can only assume it's because they gave her butterfly joints so she could swing her arms forward... completely mangling her chest-area as a result.

    More articulation at the expense of the overall figure. :/

    I hope someone is gonna make some sort of an upper chest filler, 3D printed or something.
    It is just too low IMO.

    One small thing I do wish that Takara would change in future is to make the visors on characters like Hot Rod and Arcee less transparent. On MP9, 28 and now 51 the visors tend to look more like tinted sunglasses because you can still see their eyes through them as opposed to in the film. Painting the inside of the visors silver makes it look better imo.

    wait... so are you Creed in this meme? Cause Creed is a lunatic that NO ONE should listen to. He also obsesses about things that aren't actually important....


    also he's actually probably a literal serial killer in the show... so there's that too.

    Not by much, the eyes/neck/chest are still stone cold dealbreakers, imo.

    And on a level rarely seen put out by Takara in Masterpiece.

    Easiest pass in my whole 17 years following the line. :oops:

    I normally don't support KOs, but the problem here is so egregious, someone is bound to solve it. Just like Ironhide and Ratchet.

    I think your comparison proves my suspicion that Soundwavescat has the back pack too high. At least I really hope they do. It looks much worse than the pic on the left and I don't think it's just the height of the camera.
