    I'm pro chrome. If it's done well, there will be no problem. The problem is that it's usually something that gets cheaped out on.

    Like it or not, the Peterbilt is supposed to be slathered in chrome.

    Yeah, that kinda bothers me too. Hard to tell from all these poses. Guess we’ll see, but I’d like them to tuck in more as well

    Agreed

    They might change it on the final version, but yeah I don’t like it either. Front windshields aren’t black, it looks odd

    He looks really really good imo!

    Are there any pictures of this guy in vehicle mode next to the other MPM style figure? The original was just too small i wonder how big this guy will look next to them?

    Well I can say now that this was definitely worth the wait! I need to get this badly! Hopefully we’ll see a normal pose in the near future though.

    In the future, my only hope is that the color of his eyes are a bit more pronounced. They seem a little dead in these pictures, but that’s my only complaint.

    The head needs to be bigger.
    @tonysandlin was able to make it work on his original MPM Prime and still have our transform. They should have tried the same thing for this figure.

    Here's a picture of mine with a bigger head and shoulder spikes. 20190211_183348.jpg

    Hmm hopefully a alternate head can be included or a upgrade kit for this figure, that's kind of my only real complaint

    Blue Circus Prime. You would have to spend about 50-70 dollars on it just for the head and shoulder spikes haha

    Yes, but you have to gut the chest pretty heavily. However, as you can see from the picture, it is not noticeable from in robot mode. I can let Lukelbs speak about his own experience modding it though haha

    It looks really good. Especially with these wheels that separate. I think chrome looks good but it does chip over time so I guess it’s not the best of choice on a transforming figure. The head size doesn’t bother me. I think it looks pretty small in the CGI so that makes it accurate.

    The abs are a bummer, but holy crap does he look good otherwise. Earlier this week I'd been considering picking up the BMB DotM version instead; This has nicely switched me back.

    They appear to have squared off the top of the truck hood for the sake of the arm kibble folding up tighter. I can't say I care for it since, as you noted, it squares off the abs, plus it makes the truck mode look wrong.

    I'm sure any change won't be done at this point, it's most likely gonna be into mass production right now.

    Regarding the chrome or silver paint they'll use, it's wei jiang and their materials are top notch, so nothing to worry about. (at least this test shot is using silver paint only)

    I'm still quite disappointed in the big gap in the chest and the tiny head, it's like one step foward and 2 backwards, i don't know what to feel at this point.
    Makes you wonder if it really changes the traditional Optimus we always get.

    That's BMB, not WeiJiang.
