    I mean, it still had nothing to do with the thread or was being talked about.

    Don't get me wrong, like hearing the ideas, just don't think this is the thread to share em in without a related discussion.

    I actually think the story idea is amazing, maybe there is somewhere else to discuss this. Could be a thread all on it's own.

    It’s written in blue and contains “it’s cancelled”. You definitely know it is a joke.

    I'm thinking they will in the end release a figure that we all will love, and if not, what I think would be totally funny.... It'll never happen, but it would be totally funny..

    If Wei Jiang releases it as seen. And Legendary Toys fixes the abs and releases it with an even better paint job .Adding in the orange yellowish around the flames .Thereby finally pulling off what everyone knows is always missing on these KOs paint apps. LOL

    Would never happen. Would be cool. But would never happen. I'm waiting to see an update before I preorder. Even so, if I get the same basic look, I'd still preorder, cause I'd take a stab at it in transformation to see what could be done.

    29cm? Dear God imagine how big he would get with a comparable Jet Fire armor upgrade!! He'd be the perfect height to OS SS KO Megatron from BMB, and someone needs to give us a perfect Fallen scaled MP for me to pose with. If ever a Jet fire suit gets released, I want a Fallen. What ever you want to say about ROTF that fight scene at the pyramids was epic.

    I stand corrected..Wei Jiang has it..good

    Damnit! I'm getting this guys. I'm wondering if they do a DOTM would the abs look better with those other armored abs..maybe this was a design to accommodate the remolded bits? Not likely. But I'd accept it as an excuse.
    Still.. I'm gonna get it. I've got only 2 bots I want more then anything right now. This and DX9's Hot Rod.

    Does anyone know how responsive Wei Jiang is when it comes to consumer complaints for things like the abs? Like I know Toy world does a pretty good job at listening to us throughout the development process, but how do u guys think Wei Jiang and black apple are gonna handle the controversy?

    I don't know, but from what I've heard, they in general get savaged by Chinese fans, and Japanese fans when there's some things like this that people get fussy about. so us discussing stuff here is nothing compared to those social media sites popular around there discussing such 3rd party products. Not specific to Wei Jiang, but I'm sure there are far worse online discussions happening else where popular where they are seeing at least one or two of the same complaints, I'm sure they've heard about it. What they will or won't do is a mystery, just like wondering if it isn't just mistransformed, but with every pic the same, its probably gonna release as is. I'm okay with it. Could be adjusted in hand. Who knows. But I like what I see already. I'll take it. Best MPM. Perfect? Close..but the closest yet. By far, outside of non transforming representations.

    Hey.. DR. WU could always release a parts change out..you never know.

    When I originally bought my LT02 It came missing one,of the windshield sun shades above his chest. So they sent me a replacement piece. It was a whole chest! But so easy to switch out. Took 2 minutes. It can be done if needed.

    Isn't it a little too late to make a design change to fix the abs? wouldn't that require they redesign the abdomen in general?

    As if they have a release date to call this late. These are 3rd party / ko people, if they need time for such a thing they delay it. This ain’t a game where they have a set release date so they have to pump it out in a set date :p

    Indeed. But then again seeing the prototype being painted and nearly ready to be released just makes me doubt. Would they make any change when so far in production?

    They've already said they couldn't change it due to the engineering or internal structure or something. It's from several pages back. At this point, I wouldn't hold my breath.
