    I'm seeing a lotta pics of MP-14+. But for my money, ya just can't beat the original MP-14 - unless maybe you gave him the white thighs. Which sounds really weird to type about a robot.

    Keep up the great photos, gang, and of course...

    Have fun!

    Yeah, definitely a bit dull. But although I'm not a cartoon guy, I do kind of prefer the grey colors on him. That said, I will do some customising on the one I ordered: give him his proper red tighs and some other toy inspirations and if possible real life details. Just to get a hybrid of what I like best.

    The amount of times this happens and the amount of times members point this out about MP-12/14 pics, how do we not have a gif/meme handy by now?

    All the best

    Oh don't get me wrong, I am the last to complain because I regularly mistransform Transformers for photographs, I actually have a running in joke with @Sixo about how much scrutiny we get for the content of our pictures and group shots.

    On this occasion, it is the small flip down part of Red Alert/Sideswipe on the upper outside of his shin (has part of the car's side intake on it) that has not been rotated down. A common oversight.

    All the best

    I thought it was a quiz. Was hoping to win the internet for the day or at the very least a numbered and signed print from the artist. :D

    Mistansformations when taking photos are common. The number of great shots I don't actually process due to this is crazy. One of my favourite is this obvious gaff from a shoot a while back.

    You know, it took Maz to show his picture for me to see what you meant but yep, I was stupidly doing it from memory and well you see the result.

    I would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for you pesky kids!

    It's so easily done, and that Lambor example is definitely one of the most prevalent. It's not an "essential" part of the transformation (purely aesthetic) and isn't immediately noticeable. See also the tabs at the bottom of Tracks' legs. When you're posing a figure several dozen times over for pics in one setting alone, it's not an easy spot, but it's the kind of thing that's very quickly caught when viewing someone else's pics.

    As for me, I've been pretty busy with 3P stuff recently, but still enjoying posting the pics that I recently took of my collection. :)
