    Eh you're taking it way more seriously than mmc ever has. In the broadest sense even the main product line labels don't actually follow a consistent logic as to what's under them and what it will look like.

    I wouldn't bother asking mmc to change how it goes about this kind of thing or insisting they can you're wasting your energy thinking that's possible.

    Ultimately people have to decide for themselves, regardless of what any given mmc toy is, looks like, or is labeled as, as to whether it appeals to them. You can conclude that from photos and videos and discussions surely.

    :lol  I don’t give a shit what the name is. He’s going to be the Joker to my MMC Batman (well, one of them).

    They've spelled it "Servered" for two releases now. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    All your base are belong to MMC.

    Naming aside, I’m skipping the Joker deco but I would instantly pre-order an actual SG Chromedome deco (either version, actually). I mean if they’re looking for more repaints for this mold… :)

    I seriously think you're missing the bigger picture here. You might be drinking the Kool-Aid of MMC and just taking every statement at face value, but at the end of the day MMC has set a precedent (whether intentional or otherwise) with their naming conventions. Why not just call Vexo Prominon "Ultio Sinister Glutton" or Salvia Prominon "Azalea Suzy Glickenhous." Point being, up until this point all of their previous repaints with SG acronyms have been shattered glass homages. Given this, it's not unreasonable for people to click on a forum title expecting to see a shattered glass repaint of Chromedome.

    Unless, of course, you were among the enlightened elites who saw a name and knew right away "Yea that is their Joker repaint to complement their Batman" without even looking at any pictures.

    Yes, the name changes nothing, but this thread has been click-bait since the beginning for many folks. Personally, I couldn't care less because I placed my Toydojo pre-order once it was verified via pictures that this repaint also has Chromedome's head as I can't stand the Joker head. Even so, I at least have half a functuonal brain to understand the frustration that some other members felt from the misleading name of the thread.

    I am sorry that you seem to struggle with reading comprehension.

    One last point to add: This elitist and pretentious attitude that a lot of you have is what aids to the ongoing vitriol and toxicity on this site. It is so stifling with its rejection of anything that strays from what you all want to hear and believe. May god have mercy on your souls, as I am inclined to believe that many of you are actually yearning for camaraderie and fellowship amongst fellow enthusiasts. This nastiness is why I hardly comment on this site despite however long ago I created my account. Anyhow, I am done. My life outside of TFW is much more fulfilling. Deuces!

    So what if they did name them that? This is the very definition of being pedantic. There is no big picture. It's the name of a toy. It not being an actual Shattered Glass deco isn't in any way ruining your life.

    And insulting somebody's brain function because they dont agree with your hissy fit is just plain petty. Grow up.

    I was happy to assume that SG just meant Severed Grin in this case. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    MMC Kool-aid...

    Surely they'd have to change the name of that though lol. I'd suggest MMC SG-aid .

    If you're still answering questions @LazyAza do you ever question the choice of having the emblem show correctly in vehicle mode over robot mode? Though the promo pictures hide this by having the arm bend at the correct angle to fix this.

    If the shoulder is straight down the angle shifts and the face on the emblem leans horizontally.

    ahhh. Oh that was intentional I wanted them to compliment the vehicle decals for the funny car deco visual. In robot mode the unhinged maniac is revealed so his haha's are on his arms as he beats you to death and his symbol is only up right when he's shooting his gun or winding up to hit. That's the idea. Sideways to be confusing by default to add to the whole theme of this guys a fuckin crazed weirdo.

    No idea. Boss and I did his deco back in 21 so he's been waiting for a production window for years now.

    Damn! Hopefully sooner rather than later then and in the meantime I'll just be happy with both the recent con exclusives :)

    I would have liked one of the two real sg colors schemes, not the jerker and them calling this Severed Grin likely means they wouldn't make either now.
