    Yeah, @Paik4Life demonstrates this in his video. Looks to be a big help.

    They could've put it all into the gun like Megatron did. I'm sure less people would complain if his backpack was smaller but his rifle was bigger.

    They should ditch the sound gimmick for a smaller backpack on MP44.

    Yea, I'm down with that. Anyone,wanna,use my digibash,and try to get a copy to the designer with a message about the paint apps turning the silver bits to blue. I'm hoping the slider can get a non-scratch plastic formed coating which is soft and scratch proof, then the slider could stay blue with no issues. The back canisters behind the knees, if they are diecast, I'm hoping they aren't, but if they are, why not cast them in heavy plastic, solid bits or if they must be diecast, then the same plastic like coating can be applied to it and still work.

    Either way, I hope they do all those things and,I can get that sticker for mine! Really right now, it would be nice to get a statement from the designer. Will there be a TE01 plus? New head sculpt? Maybe some color mods? More ratchets? Darker gun? Lighter windows?

    Even if there's no interview allowed, it would be nice to know either way. Also if I had the chance to ask, I would ask if Megatron was next, or Star Scream? Would love to see this designer nail those designs, so I can finally by a Skywarp that actually looks like him.

    Remember too Skywarp was the first Decepticon to wake up, and he fired Megatron a lot that first season, it wasn't until season 2 That Starscream was doing it more.

    Soundwave did it off and on throughout both seasons.

    I love that look from my digibash.it's not really a lot that would need to be done, its more aesthetics, but if done it would be the ultimate replacement for MP44. I just hope they don't give us the same head just painted grey where its white. Prime has only 4 vents above his brow.

    Well. Oh My Primus is now sold out of Mp-10 KO trailers. Good luck if you're like me and still need one, because nobody appears to have them now.

    I wish I had some knowledge on painting figures. I would just like his face grey like a lot of you have done, and this jream’s water slides kits. Then it will be perfect. That face doesn’t worry me at all. He looks already pretty good though.

    Haha, when I read this all I was thinking was, when was Skywarp ever the leader to "fire" Megatron!!! (Coz I took it literally.. skipped through most of Ur post, tldr)
    Sure, Starscream was trying to take his job all the time but Skywarp ?? That guy was such a pussy !!

    Guess I must be worried about my job ??? Haha, anyway, don't mind me !! I just found it a little funny when I read it !

    ^This. I remember reading Ominogox designer and how he wanted to go one way but the investors or whoever it was decided against it. Sorry. Hopefully someone else remembers this better than I do.

    Unless your the one holding all the money to fund the project, your just a contractor who has to what your instructed/hired to do, even if your against it.

    If only there was thigh swivel at the hip with the knee swivel. I feel that’s so important for posability. I’m still waiting for mine in the mail hopefully it doesn’t bug me.

    Yeah, I looked into that once before and it was way more trouble than it was worth to me. While I appreciate the suggestion, I'll likely end up with a white one then and custom paint it.
