    fantastic! thanks man! Yep, this shows why for me, TE01 is the perfect toon prime. Minor sacrifices noted, and acceptable.

    I love the slim profile of TE01.

    I want replacement shoulders, and smaller smoke stacks.

    Also, if TE does do a Megatron, then here is the goal. A back that is like that.

    I haven't transformed my TE01 into the truck. I wonder if the shoulders came out without rivets would it damage the truck's realism, our would it not be a big difference? I'd love to do a giant autobot logo on a smooth shoulder with smaller stacks, and replace both of mine on my TE01 V2...
    THISW IS WHAT YOUR V2 AND V1 COULD LOOK LIKE WITH REPLACEMENT SHOULDERS WITH SMALLER STACKS.

    So does he comes with two heads now? Or only with a newer one?

    Still comes with two heads but the default from V1 & V2 is now painted gray versus the odd white color.

    Updated. Pic from Robotoybase:

    That gray on the V1 head makes all the difference. It's actually a viable option like that. With the face painted white like on mine, it looked like ass. Reflected light up from the red upper body and looked pink in most lighting, unless the face was pointed straight up. I still much prefer the V2 head but like this there's at least an argument to be made for the first head.

    If they would really like to make a difference with V3 they should redesign the first head to look like S1 Prime. For instance in the Ultimate Doom.

    That's not bad looking. The grey face makes more of a difference then I would have thought and the blue windows aren't the terribly solid blue that some of the earlier pictures made it look. They're still kinda see through-ish which I like.

    (still got those damn grey hinges on the white waist though.Grrrr! WTH is up with that??)

    Put an order for mine in last week. I didn't get any updates on it from Show Z Store for a bit, and it was actually listed as sold out for a second over the weekend so I was afraid I didn't get in on time, but it looks like it's on the way to me now and I'm totally stoked. I know I'm sort of alone in this, but I'm glad it comes packaged with the S1 head, as that's the one I like better (and it's the one I currently have on my Magic Square MS-01 until TE gets here).

    Yeah- the more opaque but not solid windows actually look really good. Glad I ordered one of these when ShowZ had them for $99.99 shipped (on its way now). Just sold my first release TE on Facebook group.

    I'd consider swapping out my V1 as the number of minute changes to me is worth it:

    • Grey V1 mask
    • Smooth shoulder for faction logo
    • more ratchet teeth
    • Blue colour knees.
    anything else I've missed?
