    The turned down tires that fill the waist/love handles out.

    If that's permanent, then hey.

    Cheers guys :) 

    Yup. All permanent. It evokes design cues of the original toy and will sit happily on my shelves. If that upsets you then it is what it is bud. Like I said earlier, you can't please everyone.

    I have a disassembled MP-10 I was going to attempt something like this with. How hard was it to do?

    I would've been totally fine with you having just done a straight repaint with the added details.

    But man, you get 10,000 extra credit points for going that extra mile.

    That looks awesome! Ever since I saw the digibash somebody did of MP44 in toy style, I've been wanting to do a toy styled prime. I've given thought to doing it with one of the legends guys but you've shown here that MP10 is perfect for it. I kinda want to try this now. Sadly, I just can't see myself tearing up my mp10. Maybe I'll try to track down a KO someday and take a stab at it.

    Oh, that was you who did that.
    I love it. I think the toy design is weird and quirky and I love it. This is a great piece you made.

    There's something amazing about the sticker detail on the toy becoming 3d objects, I think this is how diaclone convoy was intended to look in the minds of children.

    Thanks for all the kind words guys. Appreciate it :) 

    Have to permanently remove a few bits which turns him into a partsformer to get him to alt mode (headlights) and 3d print some extra detailing.

    It's not for the feint hearted but it's not that hard.

    I'll get pics over the weekend if I get chance.

    It's identical to stock mp10 bud. I'll see what I can do when I get some spare time.

    Moving forward I'm thinking about a toy style MP Ultra Magnus next.

    It's amazing how this gives me such warm, fuzzy feelings. Those 'toy touches'... the darker palette... the emphasis on the chrome...

    It all looks so classy and beautiful despite being supposedly a backward step in terms of design. Capturing that Diaclone style really triggers my nostalgia. :D
