    so it's not like MP-11 in the sense you can just stick the holopilot in the cockpit with bluetack and them forget about it's existence when transforming back and forth?

    Seriously, after a year since his reveal, there are people surprised he has a faked cockpit. They dont even look the same, no way you cant tell unless you're using a 4 inch black and white monitor.

    I'm just relieved the finished product is painted the same grey as the prototype and doesn't have that horrible bare pearlescent plastic switcheroo that they pulled with MP11.

    I’ll probably transform it back to alt mode later. Maybe shoot some pics.

    As for ratchets:
    Shoulders forward/backward - soft ratchet
    Shoulders outward - soft ratchet
    Hips forward - ratchet
    Hips outward - soft ratchet
    Knees - ratchet

    My first thought when I saw those pics were....Soundwave 2.0 ...when
    Dude looks like Biff McStiff compared to the others. Too many straight lines and not enough subtle curves.

    Wow that mp-07/11 mold is really showing its age here.

    Great news! Ratchets FTW! Now I don't have to worry about loosening tolerances as much for those vital areas over time :p

    I have Ocular Max Rewind and Jaguar busting dynamic toonified poses in front of the blocky thighs/legs of my MP13 to hide them since they're the worst of his overall dated look, but yes. Long overdue.

    White accents, tapered thighs and a clear blue cassette window will really make him pop - not to mention a better Ravage & Rumble (Laserbeak is fine, but those other two were like a pair of late school assignment papers rushed at the last minute.)

    Then once they've redone him, Sideswipe, Grimlock, Ironhide, Magnus & Rodimus they can forget about v2's annoyingly slowing down the line and rationing new characters and just v1 the shit out of all those still undone. People want constructicons, triple changers, more '86 movie bots and insecticons going forward not endless redos, so hopefully with there only being 6 core characters left who really warrant the treatment (and freaking SKYFIRE showing the shape of things to come!) they'll intersperse those outliers with new ones quite quickly over the next couple of years.

    Don't forget the more toon insignia! A 2.0 for Soundwave would definitely be nice, but as many have said before, some new characters in the MP line would be good for a change ;)

    His eyes are clear plastic painted red, which I found interesting.

    And he does look oh so good blasting those wretched Autobots!
