    not to beat a dead horse or anything, but the truck ears seem to be such a simple fix that it boggles my mind why they couldn’t just add a double hinge there to fold it down. best guess would be that it’d be 6 pieces instead of 2 pieces in terms of keeping parts count within budget, but i’d rather they cut back somewhere less obvious.

    guess they gotta hold back some of these features for the masterpiece version. oh wait… :rolleyes:

    Yeah, there’s a pic in the scans of the Generations 2021 book a couple pages back.

    I just want some more pics of the truck without the stupid gun attached. The marketing team seems to think that it looks really good and they're really proud of the weapon storage, when it's actually pretty low effort.

    The pics I posted earlier have the truck from every angle without the gun.

    Yeah that’s cool but I said “more” pics. Just seems odd that 90% of the truck mode pics out there have that huge block of folded gun on them. Even the one from the magazine that you posted has the upper angled back shot with the gun so you can’t see the back of the cab.

    It’s really odd too, since in the pictures we have seen the back of the cab is actually really clean. I’m surprised they don’t want to show that off more.

    Yeah it looks so much better without it there. I’ll for sure never use that as a storage option unless I’m transporting the figure somewhere for a photo shoot so why show it off al the time?

    I spent too much time on this sketch.
    I wanna fix(?) the problems with the truck mode that bothering me (cat ears, leg vent visible on truck mode, and sun visor on truck mode).
    I hope that this is clear enough

    Thanks to @Paco Grande for providing the images for reference

    Great work, but then you have to fix how the back of the side of the cab strangely doesn't reach down far enough to reach the gas tank...

    The truck is just a disaster.

    Sorry if this is off-topic, but will this be the only MPM of the year, or will another be announced soon? I don't remember Starscream's and Ratchet's reveal being this spread apart, but I may be mistaken.

    There is a rumour of the second MPM this year being the rusty Camaro Bee from the first movie.

    Supposed to be old comaro bee (from 2007 film). Time between Starscream and ratchet was only 2 months so we might get a reveal soon.

    I really hope they put more effort into the 77 Camaro if that's the next MPM. Presumably (hopefully?) that'll be licensed so it should at least look more believable than this truck that looks like it was designed by Homer Simpson.

    All it's most likely going to be is a remold of MPM-03 bee so I don't see how they would screw it up at this point.
