    ????????????????

    I think that it's a bit too simple of a colorscheme for a MP, even when compared to the newest slavish ones.

    Definitely wins the award for "most minor repaint of all-time."

    That said, I remember how many folks bitched and moaned about Red Alert's red thighs. Glad we can finally solve the most 1st World of 1st World Problems.

    Wow. I like it. Though I wish they'd do more and Given him doors that hung by the sides of his arms.

    Also sucks that it's TTMall exclusive.

    Love how those colors look on him, I personally prefer Red Alert having a red helmet.

    I see the headlights have been painted over in white.

    They are going to keep abusing this mold just like the seekers aren't they?

    It also seems like he has no metallic paint on him whatsoever, like MP Shockwave.

    I like everything about this except for the painted headlights, and seemingly not-clear windows. I suppose the knees could use a paint app or two to make them pop, but overall I like this deco a bit more than the standard one in robot mode. In vehicle mode, I think I still prefer the original. The detail needs to be picked out on such a gorgeous car mold.

    I hope this bodes well for a toy-colored MP29 later down the road but as far as Red Alert...I really feel apprehensive about this. So they're making slavish toon versions of previous MPs now...with painted head lights and no real-world vehicle branding. So will future real-world carbots continue down this road? I'm starting to think so... This is cool if it's simply an 'option'...not so cool if it's paving the way for new mold future toon slavish MPs.

    You'd also think if they were going to bother doing this, they'd remold the door windows to go on his arms. That would make this far more worthwhile. Especially for $75.00.

    Looks nice... but TTM exclusive.. Blah.

    C'mon... Let's get Deepcover so we can finish this mold! He'll probably be an exclusive too, but at least it'll be a new character.

    My biggest bet for a cartoon recolor would be MP-10 - with blue eyes and white thighs.

    Hmmm...I wonder if this is the new trend and all the carbots will get cartoon-ized. Strangely I'm kinda digging the color scheme. *open wallets and sighs* I said no more repaints but they keep pulling me back in!!

    It looks like they've got the word 'chief' under the car in lambo mode but comes up on the side of the arm in robot mode. The screen caps do back that up. It looks great. This is a like a new mold release for me. I've been so disappointed with Red Alert and besides having the car door hanging off the arm, this is absolutely perfect. It's hard to tell but he may have a different head sculpt. So exciting. Glad my experiment with TT Mall and Ramjet went well I'll be ordering 2 of these when they go up.
