    The plastic feels just fine to me.

    This guy I've fiddled around with a lot...hell...I've even transformed him (gasp), and he's become one of my favorite MFT releases so far.

    Bring on the Wolfman...

    And to add one more, the gun hilts don't peg through the shin for storage like the UT version. Looks way better.

    Pretty big, almost twice the size! In fact, while it is a good improvement over the UT original, more details and more poseability, I feel like this like is way to big, they are even a little taller then MFT Galvatron, so I still not decided if i want to get them or stick with the UT ones....

    Also, the improvement are massive, there is not a single piece of it that is a straight upscale of the UT versione, every single piece of plastic is a complete new remold with better details.

    i wish you would hurry up and get better at photography. i mean for pete's sake your subject isn't even looking at the camera. god these pictures are starting to hurt my eyes ;) 

    but seriously nice pics per usual and i had a quick question as well that i have been meaning to ask you. what kind of camera set up are you using? light box or no light box, straight flash with digital editing. so many questions so little time.

    The other cool thing you might like then is that the smaller guns store inside his lower legs and fill in the gaps.

    I do wish the rifles could fit somewhere though.

    He's a great toy the only small (very small) nit pick I have is the rails in his chest are to big to grip the tabs to hold his chest down so they need some clear nail polish on them to enable the chest to grip properly in robot mode.

    His little mech pal is cute too they remind me of Actionmasters with their droid companions (like AM Shockwave had).

    I've followed this item since the early days and I haven't heard any whispers of repaints.

    I'm not sure what you'd want it repainted as. In the asian markets, Chromedome has basically just been G1 Chromedome and nothing else. I'm fine with MFT moving on and getting to the rest of the Headmasters cast.

    I'm just not understanding why 3P companies feel a need to be *so*damned* fidelitous to TF and associated canon for stuff that costs them money they could get more of before the molds go to shit. Pretty much ALL of these toys give us innovations in something over the original toy/s and I just don't get why paintjobs are the one area innovation is verboten.

    Hell, even in TF customizing you almost never see any character or paintjob innovation. TF fans are terrified of originality in colors, it seems.

    Depends how you define innovation. They're not terrified generally getting it to look like the character is a challenge in and of itself

    Dude, this is all about nostalgia for these characters, not some weird fanfic alternate reality where Bumblebee is blue or Chromedome is green. Nobody's afraid of innovating - there just isn't any reason for it in this case.

    Yeah. Half of the appeal of these toys, third party or otherwise is that it looks like the character you want it to be from 30 years ago.

    MFT is taking plenty of liberties with their not-Diaclone line. You pick and choose where you feel the market interest is with wild variations of the tooling you have available.
