    Ok, now this got me to thinking. MP-44 has a toon accurate bot mode but the alt mode is designed to closely resemble a real truck. It clearly isn't toon accurate when compared to the line art. But looking at MP-45 and its alt mode, it is very toon looking. It doesn't look good beside the MP-44 alt mode.

    I used to make a comic on MySpace set in the Marvel universe featuring some characters I made up...

    Some of these new MP-44 seems unpainted, mostly red, so I assume the window rims are unpainted. Nice to know there are no more stress marks there like the previous unpainted figure pics!

    It almost looks like Prime can store the gun on his butt. But alas, looks more like the bottom part of the backpack.

    Thank you for these pictures. It’s a shame we can see some red from the parts of the front of the cab that store into the legs when the knees are bent. But then again it’s not the final version. Also that backpack really looks huge now. One thing that is surely not accurate are the headlights. They should be a single square not double squares that form a rectangle! Fortunately the rear of the cab doesn’t look as messy as we thought and the feet are looking pretty good in the end. These articulations though...

    Yeah, time is a big factor. Hope you get some spare time to do that again.

    The truck mode on this guy looks like 50 levels of pure win. The robot mode on the other hand, that's debatable

    The truck mode is breathtaking. Everytime I see new pics of MP 44 I get more excited. The one thing, as many have said already, is the backpack. Its not a deal breaker for me, but I can see it becoming an issue considering the price. That said, is it too early for me to say bring on MP 44+?

    Not too early I guess. Seeing the numbers of repaint of MP10’s molds, they will probably do the same with this mold.
