    I wouldn’t really say that’s a QC but a design issue, it’s too low clearance for normal transformation without being hyper aware of it, though putting joint fix in that hinge might help put some more friction there if your tabs don’t work well

    Define young :p  Just kidding!

    I know, I know, it just surprised me (and warmed my heart) to see such a high ratio of young people in this kind of events. The last times I attended mixed conventions I could see lots of young fans of other franchises, but just a couple of Protoforms. Oh well, I hope it's just a local thing in Spain, Transformers was never that big here.

    Blocky? The jet or this one? Hellbird kinda does, but the alt mode is very angular, so it was in a sense, unavoidable. The other ones, especially the jets, have more curves on them

    yeah the luminent? 1 from sci figure industires.

    I did like alt mod, still some blocky look from below, its no mpm star scream mess but they didn't quite have thje 1:1 of the GRYFALCON. not to H8 on the figure its still fun, and these are meant to be mechs as aposssed to the the jaggered hyper maximal style of the bay former figs. Black apple is doing good to keep lots of mechanical detailing and sculping with this line, but harrconning back to other design queues from mecha and earlier G1's look.
