    The TE01 was a pleasure to transform, at least when I managed to work out the factory had placed the head on the neck backwards so the shoulders wouldn't tab into place properly..

    I asked in the ShowZ thread if the KO MP-44 people are possibly making more repaint versions like last time and while there's no definitive answer, the rep did say it was likely to happen.

    So... Who here is up for Round 2? We can collect up a few ideas of what repaints we might want and send them through. I'm thinking we can at least get a toy repaint, Marvel comic repaint and a dead repaint to get things going.

    I bought one of these and ended up bailing because of the initial issues with this mold when the KO first came out but somehow I'm back in it again. I saw there's a battle damage/rust/dirt version hanging out there for awhile on pre-order. I wanted that one and probably will still get it but I like to know what's going on with that version.

    For now, I settled on the Nemesis version, as I already have the Official MP-44 one so I don't need two of those again. Otherwise, yes. Considering they cleaned up that back pack and did other updates, I would think they would want to milk this one, especially a full toy deco that the official even lacks.

    Technically the current MP-44S is supposed to emulate the original G1 toy but yeah, plenty of uses to still get out of the mould.

    Yeah, but the official comes with stickers rather than tampos so it's still kind of lacking. What would be really nice is if they would do it with molded details from Missing Link (they won't) and a toy styled head (I'd happily give them mine). Oh, and I think it goes without saying that they'd need to put the chrome back on his tanks, grill, and stacks. And if they went a step futher and chromed his pants, I would buy that thing in a heartbeat.

    Forgive me if I've missed or already asked, but what is your toy styled head?

    I was selling them for a while but had to move and 3D printing space has been a problem since then.
