    Ok that is a really good point. Here's hoping she's all painted.

    Haha - thought my ears were burning! To my eyes these first color shots of MP Roadrage look like a fully painted prototype, not a production sample. Everything looks painted. Have no fear, though. I'm sure she'll follow Tracks' paint pattern almost exactly and she'll have a fully painted alt.

    Yeah there's no point in discussing the paint job from these shots, all these preliminary photos are completely painted, usually the whole prototype is cast in black. I remember people complaining when the photos of Soundblaster and Ratbat showed Ratbat with paint chips, but these aren't indicative of the final product.
    What is indicative is previous carbots apart from Wheeljack, who was given less paint because of his sole repaint option. Bumblebee, the most recent, was entirely covered in paint.

    I was just looking at this p/o on HLJ and saw that accessory and was wondering WTF it was supposed to be...cuz it looked a lot like what DT was about to say. Had to come here and see if that was being talked about at all.

    At first I wasn't interested in this toy but after giving it some though and finding out that MP-27 is Ironhide (very excited) I might consider getting her....also since RR dose not come with flight stand(? Please confirm) I wonder if a 3rd party can make on or if a Bandi Tamashi stand can be used as a substitute....

    She's being shown with a flight stand at the Tokyo Toy Show so I assume she comes with one.

    Probably just for display purposes while at the show. Still nothing about a flight stand in the contents list via takaratomymall.

    No but most assume Kobayashi since last we heard he was in charge of the MP line.

    But for all we know Hasui could have knocked out designs for all the car bots when he did the others.

    That's interesting, as I had just assumed that both Tracks / Road Rage and now Ironhide were Kobayashi designs. I didn't realise anyone was in any doubt that he was the lead designer now, but I guess you're right that we haven't heard anything official since the original announcement.

    I'm sure nobody is in doubt Kobayashi is now in charge. I'm just speculating maybe Hasui cranked out some more car bot designs when he was kind of on a roll, then it's just timing and licensing that decides when one is released. Remember most assumed Hasui was responsible for MP-11, but it recently became apparent it was actually Kobayashi.

    Hey isnt it time to update your sig? :)

    Has anyone found out or have any idea what that little silver accessory is meant to be?

    It's the gun that plugs into the front of the car in flight mode.
