    I'm talkinging about the little fuel tank at the bottom of the trailer near the rear tires, not the tanker itself. newage made the trailer symmetrical on both sides while UT accurately didn't.

    Oh boy $300 is an easy pass. Not that he's not worth it, I just can't spend that much on a DOTM megs.

    While I appreciate Mangmotions comparison, him not tabbing in the UT Megatron properly at all is really annoying. It’s starting to feel like he’s intentionally making it look worse than it is.

    I mean he didn’t peg the shoulder into the inside of the chest and then says it lacks ratchet joints as if it’s a piece of articulation.

    Screenshot_2024-05-25-07-54-42-395_com.facebook.orca.jpg I asked if New Age had commented anything about the price, he told me (I don't know if it's certain) that it would be 1400 RMB, which converts to around $200 US dollars.

    I love how the side mirror ticks into the shin armour, and the mount of large vehicle panels that hide behind large robot panels!

    For these designs that started to cheat a bit more with the cgi I think this is the perfect way to execute both modes.

    great range of size comparisons too

    It has bicep rotations ! The back of the arms are also well detailed

    That would be an absolute win for NA

    That's about £156, honestly thats an absolute win for me.
    Idk if I can bring myself to sell of my UT cuz I do like the look of the robot mode a little better, but the NA one has a better lorry, better articulation, better accessories, better colour, and its £50 cheaper.

    Regarding price, remember that’s within China before shipping. Large figure so shipping will cost quite a bit. Expect it to be about UT price at retailers, if that price is true.

    Someone made a rough equation for price on show Z which has proven pretty accurate thus far. Take chinese price and divide by 5, that's about how mich shipped they end up being.

    That puts this around 280 shipped.

    A bit on the steep side, but like all things you get what you pay for.

    Sorry to be that guy but no, it will not be less than UT Desperado.

    Edit: what do you think about this scale? For me works great.

    Uts shoulder is loose, and the balance is bad. Also didn’t hide the head and chest in alt mode. Not looking at the details, na for the win
