    If these Cone heads are based on MP-52 mold, I wonder how much smaller they compare to DS seekers, even with the pointy heads?

    Looks pretty nice. I'd buy a Nacelle from this for sure if Maketoys keeps making every other recolor instead lol.

    Say what you will about the Maketoys versions, but they've made me appreciate how much cooler Thrust looks with his wings on his back rather than his legs.

    Looks good to me! My only complaint is the black not being gray as well.

    At the very real risk of starting a scale debate, I'd find it weird having the coneheads smaller than the original trio.

    Still holding out hope for a Star Toys version.

    I hope these give Black Mamba a good reason to release their own!

    Holy shit! MP-52 retooled into the coneheads!? I’ve been waiting for this since I got Skywarp back at the start of 2022! Pre ordering this as soon as i can!

    Interesting. I think Maketoys Thrust looks better though. Might be because of the red color they have chosen.

    Hoping to see an official one made TBH. This is good but not all there.

    Super lazy.

    Wonderful-Trans? ;) :drunk 

    Yeah. The irony being though, I’d rather have official versions from Takara. And even then, I wouldn’t touch those ones either.

    Well, since it’s a KO, you can probably expect them to be the exact same size. Minus maybe another half an inch of… head.

    They’ll be just as short and fat as their official counterparts they’re knocking off.

    There is the chance that the KO can be upscaled. It's happened before. I have the KO upscaled MP-08 Grimlock and he's awesome.

    However, if these are being made to accompany the official MP-52s, they most likely will not be upscaled.

    I'll be keeping an eye on these. Fix the colors, scale them up a little bit and I'm in for the trio.

    And since these are based on MP52, it means they'll have the faux cockpit over the real one, which would make the jet mode extra thick. This was the biggest reason I picked DS over TT.

    Will keep my eye on these! Was hoping someone would take these on :)  I agree with others that the colors need to be adjusted.

    Oh its just a modified MP-52 mold, that's a pass. No interest in those awkward legs and lack of waist swivel.

    The wings being attached to the legs is also a big yikes.

    I'd dig mp Thrust based on DS Screamer not MP-52 :confused:  Fake chest and no waist swivel.

    Yeah, why not retool the DS version instead? Was it actually easier to get the mold for MP 52 than an unlicensed 3rd party figure?
