    There's a color change on the missiles: translucent purple. Seems that the original silver might still be included as an extra, but not sure whether that'll be a PSX exclusive or what.

    Doesn't seem to be mentioned in the post, but the half-moon disks on the either side of Tortor's head have also changed from black to red.

    PSX says there are two heads. One is larger, but the mask is not removable. The smaller head has the removable mask.

    Yeah, that is a pretty good scale for most of the figures (Nickel and The Pet/Dominus look a bit too big though). Really need to complete my DJD display.

    Not sure what to think. All the bits are right, but the torso doesn't look like it can be hollow as there are fake treads in the middle so you can't feed anything through. That might not be the case but that's what it looks like from the render. His wide stance with the swaying outwards knees doesn't look the best either. Still it looks like one of the best translation from art to toy and I hope to see more features when we get to prototype phase.

    The large feet and knee pads that don't have any sculpted details or an interesting shape are kind of an eyesore to me. At the very least I think the edges could use a bevel.

    I realize they're like that in the comic art, but I think the design in the render makes those parts larger, and they really stand out in a 3D image for their plainness.

    Wait, there was already an MMC Helex? I didn't know about this. Oooh! But they look good though! But, why did I think the Pet was Leozack is what confuses me?

    Also, idiot me posted this on the Conehead thread by accident because I'm so used to just scrolling down my phone and typing my thoughts from there. :oops:

    Well, the pet can be recolored as Lionbreast... and remolded as BW Ravage... and a dozen other beastformers with a similar TF scheme.

    Really want to fill out a DJD (I have Tarn and love him <3) but kinda nervous. Didn't that Vos toy have a lotta issues with breaking? Or did they fix that in future releases?

    I'll be looking at the price (it may be almost as much as Carnifex on current UK Pricing looking at the size of him) but I probably will to complete the set. Not my fave design of the crew but it may have some use as a pencil sharpener.

    Looking good. The bow legged stance is a bit wonky but nowhere near enough to put me off. I'm down for all these guys.
