    Kind of sad when a 3P version looks better than the official...

    Gotta admit the robot mode is looking pretty slick! Although the fuel tanks on his legs are hilariously undersized.
    It looks like the front of his hip covers have hinges, allowing for ample articulation.
    Too bad his vehicle mode is a bit of a mess.

    Those visible ratchets at the back of its knees will certainly make a few people here weak at theirs.

    You mean like this?

    It looks great. I like the idea of the battle damage but it’s a bit underwhelming. I thought MP-36 barely scraped by with enough battle damage to homage the movie. This? Just looks like a couple of holes in a few panels. Would love to see them go all out with either seperate parts or a full 86 movie post-battle version.
    Kind of surprised someone hasn’t done that with MP- 36 mould given how everyone and his dog is able to KO it.

    That chunkiness is going to look fantastic next to Despotron.

    He just doesn't look as awesome as he did as a grey prototype...


    Bot mode still looks cool, but his alt mode doesn't....although I'll never transform him so it honestly doesn't matter.


    I'm so confused right now. :lol

    Looks like it has a lot of similarities with MP-10 in a sense of how the figure works...Like they took MP-10's design and improved it

    What is this? It has only one windshield wiper and looks battle damaged. The previous pictures were not like this, he had 2 wipers and no battle damaged. Also the cab is missing the wipers all together on these pic. Is this even magic square?

    really hope transform element have gone back to the drawing board those arms and legs look much better just the torso look shit , honestly wish magic square had given theirs biceps like transform element and takara but its the only thing i can nitpick on magic square as the rest is looking really good would be awesome if they could give us a couple of headsculpt options

    actually the visible matrix don't look great

    Can one of our retailer presences clairify if this has been officially solicited yet? I see preorders up at tfsource, but not at any of the other big sponsors. I'm hoping that's not because of to close a likeness to takaras and they're refusing to carry it like what allegedly happened with fanstoys original design for grindor.

    The battle damage is optional additional parts.

    I have to disagree with you on the TE prime. I think it looks better than the MS version in every way. But then again I am a toon guy and I prefer my prime to not look like he is on gear (or is the offspring of a gorilla ala mp-10).

    This would make an awesome Legends version Prime. An MP one...whatever floats your boat. Bot mode is not that bad but not very original more like MP10 1.5, alt mode is just fail period, it's like it's been chibified.
