    Shame. Just everything about the chest looks off to me. I guess it's not "busy" enough? Hard to explain . Puts me off

    Yep the chest continues to be the most highly critiqued thing of the mold and that's nothing I could have fixed. Paint aps certainly weren't needed on it outside of the main yellow. I do think a nice auto symbol in the center will help a bit though, I'll be putting one on mine for sure.

    Ye guess you're right. Thing is I don't usually add faction symbols to my 3Ps.

    Great Work LazyAza, can't wait to get mine in hand. Will we see a IDW Optimus from MMC down the road to compliment Tyrantron and Calidus?

    I wonder if some light thin panel lining will help the chest pop. I think he looks great but something is missing to me. I can't wait to have this in hand!

    That is English. It's the sound Wolverine's claws make when he pops out his claws.

    The head is so good, it's making me reconsider my decision to hold out for Hot Flame.

    Guess it's time to bite the bullet and place an order.

    Such an annoyance that Kapow doesn't have a stack system and that you run the risk that when you combine with a still to be released figure, there's no guarantee you'll get the paid for figure since they just sell it if they can.

    Because I'm still not quite sure what else I want outside of Turben who's next month. (Maybe the Laser Optimus???)

    One thing I can't tell from pictures shown is does he have panel lines on his abdomen where they look "powered up" like the ones shown here? The obliques I'm talking about. I was thinking about adding some orange chrome paint to give the affect.

    Don't think so. You do know this is MMC right? I don't think they are known for generous paint application. I mean whatever is there will be well applied, etc, but if you are looking at extreme comic accuracy, you won't get it.
