    This actually sounds a lot like a redesign I was working on in my head for the figure a while back. With the waist at the rear of the truck and the feet storing in the cab, and the real truck windows becoming the chest windows. I might still have the drawings around here somewhere lol

    Any idea which size this will end up? (MPM, WeiJiang, leader, something else entirely)

    Looks promising. Never thought anything would bump my WeiJiang Prime- but you're off to a very solid start!

    29cm, so spot on mpm scale

    maybe, if there's enough demand, we'll release an "s" version as well at 25cm for the people who prefer the smaller size Prime

    The chest windows are real, and the excess window bits fold away into the chest. The grille is real, the tanks are real, the back panels are real- just about everything that can be real, is real. I'm even looking into making the waist headlights real...

    The doors on the robot mode chest are only 60% the size of the ones on the cab, so using the original doors would look awful. I used a different part instead (near the back of the cab, as you can see in the image). While it's not the actual door, it still works to improve the other mode.

    (The above pic's a couple days old, here's what I've done today. Don't worry about the oddly placed windows, they're only up in the air because I was working on the parts right below them.)

    Looks really good. Will there be translucent plastic used for all lights in alt mode where applicable?

    i'll try, but that's down to the factory that produces it

    i'm torn between having led eyes and having a mouth plate gimmick

    You could leave space in the head so people could put LED eyes in it themselves. Supply painted eyes and translucent eyes for options.

    Progress pic- Tried out a ray tracing rendering plugin for Sketchup.

    Should I make my own thread for this? At this point, it's closer to being an original figure, than to being a KO.

    That's the intention. I'm working on it for FPT, but the files will also be uploaded to the internet when done, so it'll possibly be picked up by some other companies too.
