    Nice pics. I've got this in hand, and alt mode is much better looking than bot mode in my opinion. Not that the bot mode isn't faithful to the source, I'm just not a fan of the wings in bot mode. Too kibbly, even though I realize that's what he's supposed to look like.

    Hmm his wings in not mode look way to far down to Me. They should be just below his shoulders like the rest right?

    No, that's where his wings go. You can actually slide them down further if you like, but that's as high as they get. It's supposed to look like the G1 toon. If you don't like that look, there are some 3P options that have the wings up higher on the back like you're describing.

    Never really cared fro thrust design (giant wings on legs) but wow, in vehicle mode, he is amazing! Althought that leads me to wonder, is there a turbofan VTOL jet like tthat in real life?

    I've always liked the Thrust design, but this figure just looks too kibbly. The wings just look too much like origami.

    Don't like either of those Coneheads. Glad I decided to save the money and have just the S1 trio.

    The Coneheads always looked a little odd compared with the S1 trio, but these MP coneheads feel ... unfinished? The grey and black mismatched colors, the way the nosecone hangs far too low (and phallic) in bot mode, those overly large knee pads, the way the wing kibble hangs, the huge face. Maybe this 10 year old (!) mold stops some of those things from being fixed. But still, I look at these coneheads and see a prototype, something that needed a few more weeks/months of work to get all those minor things fixed.

    Thrust is my 6th TT seeker and my favorite of them all. Looks much better in hand, than in pics!

    My favorite conehead has always been Ramjet. Like his colors, design, wings, etc.....

    But as a toy, looking at these MPs, Thrust is amazing-looking. Way cooler than Ramjet.
    I don't know what it is, but it just screams 'sweetness' to me.

    I understand the disappointment in the MP not having the kind of deep, rich paint apps and dark vibrant colors of the G1 or Classics toys, I'd love to see someone take a crack and repainting it, but even as-is, it just looks so nice. DAMMIT - these are too expensive and I was all happy about passing on them, but MAN Thrust looks cool.

    Yeah, definitely not one of my favorites. Unfortunately I'm a slave to toon accuracy. It's like one of those things you know isn't good for you but you just keep doing it anyway. :banghead: 

    He does look REALLY good in alt mode though. Probably my favorite seeker look. This may be one of my only MPs that stay in alt mode.

    Yeah, I wasn't doing pics when the originals came out. Sold some since, and haven't had time to shoot the old / other models I still have yet. One day. :)

    'Masterpiece Thrust' sounds quite pornographic!
