    Didn't see this posted anywhere in N&R, so here we go:

    Vector Zeta Renders » Slagacon

    Looks kinda...rough, but I'm still looking forward to mine regardless. Also of note, they say prototype pictures should be showing up soon, so I'm eagerly awaiting them.

    I wasn't planning on going after it regardless - but those images would not sell me.

    I have a feeling its either going to be a huge let down, or one of the coolest pieces ever. Hoping for the latter, needless to say ^^

    That head is just awful - it looks like a parody of an actual TF.

    It looks like... I dunno, like a good start, but a design that needs a lot of refinements and detail. I'm not one for a ton of greebles and lines and whatnot... but this doesn't have nearly enough.

    I was never really on board because of the price, but I thought it looked good till I saw that head. That looks pretty bad, I'd give it another swing if you expect $175 for this set.

    I can tell that they tried to copy the artwork, but it doesn't really translate well into 3D. They should add some more detail, go for a more normal head...That would help.

    I actually like the new twist that TGping put on this upgrade set, and I'm a huge supporter of garage kits. That said, while I understand how much work goes into each one of these, I wouldn't spend the $175 on a set, it's just too much.

    I preordered this thing. Please fix the head. It doesn't have the classics feel to it, and won't fit in with the line with the blockhead look.

    Soooooo...do they offer refunds? I will wait this out but why are 3D renders being released with so little time until the con? Seems like it is going backwards as we saw a mock up a while ago.
