    Because the fandom votes with their wallets, and we've apparently been voting as Sunbow as possible.

    Me too. Especially if it gets me a Ruination.

    Pretty sure he meant the G1 toy. Swindle is only a Jeep in the cartoon because the animators misinterpreted the G1 toy.

    I think my problem with Onslaught is the definition from his torso to waist. Like if you look at it from the ab crunch he’s just got a really low waist. Maybe if it was just that upper bit which could compress more to have a bit of difference, I think it would work better.

    In the end you can't have your cake and eat it too. The tech is just not quite there yet.

    It is what it is. You are comfortable with the trade off, you go ahead, if not, well there's no harm checking out what other companies will be doing.

    Yup. Heck, they did more than misinterpret, look at his robot mode! It's like someone described Swindle over the phone, and they drew the model sheet off of that dialogue...

    Nope, you are wrong. The limbs are fairly toony but mmc's Onslaught is vastly more studioOX based. Which is why it looks so much better when it has the ox parts applied:

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    The overall set is a mix. Each toy has its different percentages of what it is visually more reminiscent of. Anyone saying its ONLY -X- or ONLY -Y- has it completely wrong. It's a hybrid design and always has been.

    MMC's Blastoff transforms in to the studioox shuttle. It does not have the single screen cockpit design like the toon. It's long and narrow not short and wide like the animation.
    MMC's Swindle has proportions derived from the StudioOX art, boxier torso, slender arms, bigger calves to also benefit its leg mode.
    MMC's Vortex has an alt mode much closer to the StudioOX art than the toon design (which was very egg shaped).

    MMC has taken this approach with their mps many times now. Their Springer, their Arcee, their Inferno, their Mirage. All of these toys have not been beholden to any one specific thing. MMC has not to date made an mp that was outside of maybe their Remix tapes I suppose. But even those are scaled differently.

    Even Maximus is doing the same, much of the torso transformation and detailing on him is more true to the ox Defensor torso than the toon Defensor torso. That is precisely why it has narrower waist armor whereas animated Defensor had a huge ass skirt.

    Hybrids, mixes. This is mmc's thing.

    I've been seeing clear if the ultra Sunbow stuff myself (the last official MP I bought was maybe Ironhide). But we seem to be a minority.

    And no, I don't think it's a captive audience thing. Companies have gone in other directions, including more OX-based stuff, and they just don't seem to sell.

    Absolutely stunning! Cannot wait to finish this set.

    It looks like the boots are roughly 3/4", which would put the combined mode from 45cm, up to 47cm (18.5") tall.

    No a skirt. In the animation Defensor was drawn with a massive block of armor around his waist and hips. MMC's Def design has smaller waist armor.

    Why is he so perfect? Looks also like Brawl might have opening hatches on the turret.
    Yeah I agree. Cause I’m still not motivated to buy the upgrade kit. But it really works for me.
