    Thank you for making the change of silver to grey for the combined mode face, I felt like the silver was washing out the sculpt and making it look less alive.

    I need this figure **now**. Haven’t been this excited by an MP scale release in so long.

    I like too but won’t it now clash with the color of Assaultus since he has a silver face?

    Why would it need to? Assaultus has a faceplate, which makes sense to be silver. For whatever reason silver seems to wash out face sculpts.

    Assaultus’s whole helmet is silver, he doesn’t really have a face. Just a visor and faceplate.

    Agree completely. I was initially put off by the switch from silver to gray in the MP line, but I really turned around on it and it's for this reason. Details of the sculpt, especially the mouths - tends to get lost or look a little mushy with silver. That can still happen with other colors (XTB Savant's original face is a good example) but it seems like less of a sure thing than silver.

    I dunno, I'm seriously thinking about getting regular Ignis for my MP Hotspot and Ignis A for Defensor.

    I was thinking the same thing mate. Does anyone have incursus and Roadking plus Ignis? If so, could they post a comparison pic of the 3 of them in robot mode please?

    You know I don't know why I keep torturing myself by following this thread because they all look so bloody great but I simply don't have the shelf space/expendable cash for yet another combiner, especially since devastator is on the horizon and i'm probably going to be all in on that. Ignis looks fantastic, which isn't all that surprising since I really liked medicus and navigant from what i've seen; Super tempted to just get ignis since I have a soft spot for hot spot's designs but I know if I do i'll have to get the rest

    I have Gravestone which I think is only slightly shorter than Roadking.
