    I know what they all look like...

    My opinion...

    MT too fat...everywhere, fugly faces
    MMC too skinny...decent looking, but misses the husky nature of him
    XTB huge ass feet, big head.
    TT nails the aesthetics and it just looks and feels like Inferno to me.

    MMC is the best looking I think of the 3P offerings, but just doesn't nail the character. XTB has the most real world alt mode.

    Like it or hate it, just as with Ironhide and Shockwave... In my opinion TT nailed the character more than any 3P and to me, that's all that matters.

    Nice!

    Totally cartoon or with some added detail, all of the MPs have been the best official interpretations of the G1 character they are portraying. I don't really love Megatron or the seekers, but there isn't anything official that's better yet. Inferno looks that way to. So, whichever designer's philosophy you like, I still think they haven't made a failure in the MP line.

    As far as 3rd party goes, I really don't see why you would argue. Get the one you like.

    Just when I thought I was..they pull me back in.

    Looks fantastic - I was planning on stopping with the 2 unreleased coneheads (i know i know)

    He kinda reminds me of a cross between Ironhide (feet, legs) and Shockwave (arms). The face is awesome. I wonder how the ladder and alt mode will be - surely the alt mode will be relatively small? However I care far more about the bot form and the transformation, so, so far so great.

    I'm sure he does, but I would love to see Hoist...because Trailbreaker. As strange as it may sound I'd put Trailbreaker as one of my most highly desired MP figures.

    I think he looks great. It's not the character that I would have expected for sure. I don't have any complaints though. I'll take it. I am hoping for a Jazz and a Megatron 2.0 sometime soon though.

    So, what kind of accessories are we expecting to get from MP Inferno? I'm expecting his standard gun, at least a pair of hand and a pair of missile/hand hose as per G1 toy. He should also come with both toy and toon head. Anything beyond this is a bonus. Don't recall other accessory he used in the toon. Was the cartoon ever shown both Inferno and Grapple had both hand like Shockwave?

    This is just a question I have so please no hateful answers. I just like to know with that MP of Inferno is it postable to get his arm like this in a pose.

    [​IMG]

    The reason why I am asking cause I would like to pose him in this kind of pose when I get him?

    I agree with you on Trailbreaker. So many reasons too.....Original Ark Crew, mid-large size scaling, Black coloring to mix in with the group....I am still hoping to sometime soon make my favorite display scene, Prime Trailer with the Ark Cars/Trucks following behind in a desert canyon scene. Filling in with 3P's in the meantime, But Jazz and Trailbreaker are the big gaps.

    Not to mention, Trailbreaker seems to get shaft when any new lines come out. I mean, the CHUG featured some nice well scaled , modern versions of the originals, but Trailbreaker, when they finally released him, was the biggest disappointment of the line, not to mention the smallest of all the Autobot car releases.

    But , yes, maybe only second to Jazz, I am hoping that 2017 brings the Trailbreaker mold.
    It seems 2016 would be quite filled up with the Vans, Hotrod, Shockwave, Inferno, and then possible Coneheads, Grapple, maybe Cliffjumper, basically using modified already engineered designs, plus they usually drop an '86 character or two each year.

    Thanks!

    That'll be a nice red on him if TT use your coloring.

    IMHO the MP has the best proportions and just looks the best BUT I really do wish there was just a little something more happening on those legs.
