    No stand a la inferno-red alert to help SS carry Megatron over Astrotrain’s threshold. Hopefully his ratchets are made of sterner stuff.

    It captures "THE SNEER" far better than the earlier promo pics made me think.

    I think they overloaded those faces with paint tbh, and it was harder to see the finer details of the actual sculpts beneath. Same goes for the regular face, which looks better now it's released and less bloated around the mouth.

    Just wow.

    I'm almost glad that I have to wait for a few days before receiving mine because it's great seeing all the pics, which help to build anticipation and excitement.

    Personally, I'm hoping for and think peoples' collections will look slightly better if they were to reissue Shockwave+.
    I'm really glad I got in on that.

    Agree about Shockers. As for SS, mp-11 is so cheap feeling and unpainted in hand, it never sat remotely well with me.

    Starscream is a premium character in the TF universe and deserves a more premium, well finished masterpiece to match, so I'm glad the early word so far is good.

    For me, I consider the Siege Skyfire an acceptable stand-in largely because I’m not going to want to spring for the actual MP, lol…. And while the alt mode is lacking in a few ways, I’m actually pretty satisfied with the bot mode.

    See. This is exactly why less is more.....

    It's like they can't leave any section untouched by detailing. Let's puts some details on those details to go with those greebles. Even the side of his bloody hands are covered.

    Looks really jarring next to the cartoon MPs imo. Nope. Bring on the Takara MP.

    Is there any website I could still order from to get him relatively fast? I did not preorder him and frankly I kind of forgot about his release.

    This is basically always true of the hand-painted prototypes, they have too much paint layered on and it makes the face sculpt looks off, but then the production version always turns out fine.

    “Tin-canny is more like it!”

    Sorry, couldn’t resist an episode reference! :lol 

    As for MP-52, hopefully I’ll have mine in hand in the next few days!
