    So that's what they did with the left over pieces from the first run! ;) 

    ETA: It'll be neat if, going forward, MMC now has even variety of molds/ideas and factory time to produce exclusives for all the "major" third-party cons every year.

    Glad I think I prefer the one I already got...but cool people have another shot at this. Would like to see one that's a combination of the two, mostly clear parts, obviously.

    Man, I missed out the first since I was doing something before it sold out on A3U website. Hopefully, I can get it next time.

    He made the initial custom, but the ones sold by MMC have been mass-produced. They use some complicated paint masks.

    The only real differences I can see is the helmet being not clear and orange, now blue transition. I would say the 1st version was the best but the face was left unclear. Not sure I like this newer one with the helmet this time not being clear with the face.

    If indeed supposed to be opposite, I'm surprised they left the gun and shoulder missile clear? The gun makes sense to leave clear.

    That Hauler looks the best of the colours hands down. I would totally jump on that but fuck those who are the other side of the planet right?

    Yeah, it's very nice. The way I read "available at MMC shop during TFCON Chicago" I'm not sure this will be at the con, though; that sounds more like a pre-order on a website.

    It's fun, but I'm much more interested in the full clear version!
