    It looks elongated to me...I don't know. It's off to me, and really throws the figure out of whack in my eyes. Like an uncanny valley thing. I can't explain why it bothers me, it just does.

    And that's weird because MMC usually gives me very idealized looks for their designs. Their Feralcons to this day are still the looks I think of for the Predacons as characters. Overlord, Springer, and Sky Lynx are in my top three figures for their sculpt and engineering. I normally love MMC.

    But there's just something about Mnemo...

    Honestly I love the head sculpt, its mtmte chromedome to me and I'll be lucky to own it. It's a great design for a great character.

    Agreed. Chromedome is one of if not my favorite from MTMTE, so you KNOW I had to pre-order him, haha.

    Aside from the color, which to be fair, we have yet to see the final revision of, he looks flawless, and so does Rewind.

    Honestly thinking I should maybe grab another set just for the hell of it...

    I know MMC moved his release date back from today to Jan. 15th, but I was kinda hoping anyway...

    Same here - PSX still had 12/15 and I was excited. But Mnemo and Motif are on the way, plus TorTor and Mors arrived in Q4 also, so I've had more MMC to whet my whistle.

    Same, but i'm both fine with the wait and have more to worry about.

    That being if these two lovable goofs will be making it to my doorstep before Christmas or not...

    Just moved from one airport distro center to the "next station" in a matter of 2 days, that being since yesterday, and my hope is an ebb and flow at this point.

    God, I hate Rewind. Kills Megatron and sentences billions to die, and everybody high-fives him. Getaway takes overy a ship and everyone thinks he's the devil. I guess a potential genocide is okay, but manipulating others is "the real evil."

    Mine just shipped via UPS ground today. If timing proves accurate I'll have them by Wednesday based on past TFSource orders.

    Cant believe I dropped this coin on a figure that if you put a gun to my head i couldn’t tell you anything about lol. Just looks so damn good and it’s Optimus in one form or another so it must be mine. The articulation made me pull the trigger.

    Meanwhile my duo's straight outta PSX. Not to mention I was basically in the middle of the huge snowstorm that blew over the Northeast, haha.

    And doy, how could I forget? My stashes for BBTS, TCP and TFSource are all stacked, to boot, haha. Gotta ship them when I get the chance, just gotta get a couple more items from a sprinkling of the three (MP Sunstreaker, DX9 Omega, ReMix Ravage, Laserbeak and Buzzsaw, etc) and boom, i'll have them all come home for the holidays...

    I mean the holiday after-party. :(

    15 inches of snow, boys. MMC's Sky Lynx looked out the sliding glass door and just went back to his pet bed.

    Forgot the hard numbers but I wanna say at least 8 inches? Was definitely enough for me to bust my ass shoveling and blowing snow all around my workplace over today and yesterday. Took what you could probably think of as a nice and calm victory lap around the whole property afterward, really meditative just walking in the snow looking at nature and shit, not to mention the exercise always does good for me, haha.

    Great picture! I'm curious how the Matrix works though; from the older photos, it looks like the handles don't fit into the chest.
