    chest is die cast. so far I've been pretty rough on the test shot without chipping, and there's nothing it really collides with

    the hoodlum situation is weird, because both the hood and the fake chest can have paint issues independently and for different reasons

    Oh come on. The chest on FansToys Apache is also diecast. Zero paint issue. It's not about whether something is diecast, it's more about clearance.

    I think this guy is my ideal choice for a 3P MP springer. Stylish and different alt modes and a robot mode that has some good variation and fixes those ridiculous side shoulder pads. Does anyone know where the spear comes from though?

    I like this Springer a lot, but why does everyone make their Springer gigantic.

    This scale seems nuts to me. Seems to be what they are going off of.

    I would much prefer this.

    Huh? Your first scale chart pic is just wrong in so many ways. I don't even know where that came from. Looks like a crappy digibash that someone's thrown together to explain some of the animation errors from Season 3?

    No one in MP has made Rodimus, Ultra Magnus and Springer the same height. Nor would they.
    Springer is pretty much the same height as Rodimus and Optimus, and that's how pretty much all the MP's are stacking up.
    MP-22 is quite tall for many but I've yet to see any scenario like the one you're talking about. I'm wondering if you're getting Hot Rod and Rodimus confused?
    That second scale chart is correct, and it's pretty much what we're getting. Hot Rod up to Springers abdomen/lower chest, Rodimus eye to eye, Magnus at least head or more taller.

    Is there actually an official scale chart for the season three cast? Seems like they're all fan made.

    This one looks most reliable to me since it seems to have been created by the animators, but doesn't include Springer:
    [​IMG]

    And there was another scale guide floating around that was a scan from an official source guide, but as far as I know, the season three cast weren't included.

    I don't know about the first pic, but the second one Hawkwave posted was most definitely fan made (and created by a TFW2005 member if I'm not mistaken).

    I am very interested in the video review of this figure. When is he due out?

    I dunno. I haven’t even seen an in production sample review yet. The only footage on him being discussed was A3U’s Roundtable from ages back.
