    Lol dude! I don't even have the money right now I'm saving for Starscream so I'm happy to have that on hold for a while ;)

    That's kinda how I wouidve done an MP SS as well. Pull the head and chest further forward so U have much more room to hide the nosecone.
    It's not as simple as say, what the 3rd party figures do where they augment the shape of the vehicle to compensate for a better robot design.

    TT barely ever give up the vehicle proportions just to justify a toon bot.
    And I'm pretty happy with that. But I need to see more of this guy to see how good he'll come up.
    Atm, I like what they've come up with so far and think it'll look well in color. So hoping there's no extra things like a voice box or some crap that isn't essential to keeping the figure slim and clean.

    If a ‘+’ version came out that looked like this.... words would fail me.

    Tried out adding the full complement of alternate faces I want to my digibash, just like some of you other talented people have done to the other brilliant digibashes and taking a lot of inspiration from @Sam's screenshots! I'm sure TT will do a much better job.

    Well, made a start :) 

    Gonna take a little while. Limbs should be much easier than this to model, canopy and crotch will be a pain in the arse to get the curvature right. Plenty of interpretation and guessing required. A top view would have been helpful but ah well. I apologise in advance for what will have to serve as a 'face' and hands :) ...

    Gotta say I'm digging the sculpt though - love how the chest intakes are not flat parallel like MP-11 but taper outwards towards the middle a bit like Prime's chest. It's these little touches that really bring it to life in 3D (and make it harder to model accurately! :) ). I think he's gonna look great in hand.

    For me, Hound was the straw that broke the camel’s back...I have been experiencing dodgy QC on quite a few purchases.

    One of my cars’(Prowl) paint wasn’t properly dried (?) or the paint melted?

    Thankfully my import shop has been willing to do exchanges for me. Things got so bad that I opened the figures in the shop itself.

    Aw man, who could forget?

    Just look at how far we've come in 35 years, it's kinda mesmerizing when you think about it.

    [​IMG]

    Just pretend this is TFW Gold or whatever we'd call it. Totally not just an image Reddit Gold award.

    Fucking fantastic, my friend.

    And don't think I didn't catch this as well... Awesome work!

    Quick question, which 3D modeling program are you using for these?

    Thanks dudes! I'll try get it done before the task is made redundant by real proto pics! :) 

    It will be a statue at first but if I find time it could be articulated. Will have to guess joint axes but cant be too far off for the basic hips, knees, etc.

    I'm doing it in Solidworks.

    This make the idea of a long wait until grey prototype shots that bit more bearable!


    Gotta say I want all six of these faces now. Thanks a lot Chris :lol

    I really feel like the surprised face screams Starscream whining "if I was in charge..."

    I guess the neutral face is similar to the grumpy one but I'd still want them both

    Screenshot 2020-08-03 at 17.48.34.png Screenshot 2020-08-03 at 17.48.13.png



    I need both of these smiles, absolutely!

    I guess maybe I could live with only one of these two:

    Argh, decisions! Please include all six Takara :lol

    For those working on models----everything I can see so far, indicates they're basing the alt-mode on an F-15C.

    Wouldn’t that be awesome if they released an MP with six face options?! Especially for a character like Starscream, I think I’d get more enjoyment out of a couple more faces than a one-episode accessory (though I do enjoy a lot of those accessories).

    I think 3 faces is the sweet-spot with iconic characters with an actual mouth. Megatron, Starscream and likely Galvatron. They were either laughing at their so called "majestic" plans for world domination that never got them anywhere, completely pissed off with themselves or just serious.

    I wouldn't mind a "surprised" one as well for Starscream, or something denoting pain. But TBH, I'll be happy with the regular 3. I'm actually not expecting anything less ....
