    Message his store on fb, I had to take a grab about 45 mins to his place. I think you can probably see most of his stock online too. :thumb

    Fantastic work bro! Top notch. TE should do a head sculpt like yours. They should release their figure in Marvel comics colors like the MP OS KO did of MP Grimlock and do a comic style box for it. New art. And no connection to Marvel of course. But I would definitely pick that version up too.

    As a proud TE-01 Prime owner I gotta admit that MP 10 transformación is far better than TE-01 Prime and MP 44. Its a classic without a doubt.

    How about a Ghostbusters and Gundam version of TE-01?

    I received the neck and I must say that it is nicer than I thought! To all TE-01 owners: this replacement piece is a MUST!! Trust me ;-)

    A quick, long overdue "Thank You!" to transformer_78 for the amazing neck extension. I had no idea that 1/16th of an inch could make so much of a difference. (Ahem.) Thanks again. I love it and it makes an already wonderful figure that much better. If you have TE-01 and haven't gotten the new neck, I can't recommend it enough.

    hey thank you! I really appreciate the feedback :)  Yes it’s just weird why TE didn’t do that in the first place, they only needed to extend the neck just a tiny bit more and it would of made all the difference. Thanks again

    I have a few left for those still interested.

    Agreed. Picture can't do the extension justice. You have to have it to see the difference. It is really day and night.

    Just purchased @transformer_78 neck extension as well to keep pimping my v1 TE-01. I would still like to find a way to give the chest windshield a tinted blue look, but I don't wanna keep spending money when I have a good feeling TE is gonna keep milking this mold to ultimately give us a more pristine painted version.

    Still have hope @jream will ultimately make an emblem similar to what he did for FansToys Phoenix.

    just a random image I found. No plans in the works, tho they should it could be the missing link, an MP style G1 toy version.
    [​IMG]
    I like that art image. If someone does decide to do an MP of the G1 Toy and upgrade it with MP level articulation, I hope it feels alive like this image does, and they manage to give it a back over the cab. I don't want a mod of the original G1 toy mind you, no a retelling of it, a reformat, an MP as good as TE01, but of the toy and feels and looks as sweet as this. I love the glass windows over the forearms and the pistons inside. I want an MP that has that feature, and yet still does a decent TF movie inner matrix chamber that pops in or supplants the front seats when turning into bot mode. A Real MASTERPIECE is what I am talking about here, not a retool. Like the image below, picture a version like TE01 but in that G1 classic toy style!
    [​IMG]
    See what I mean? The Imagination on how good it can be is just emphasized by that art piece. Imagine, same scale as TE01, but looks like that! and is as good of quality Chrome is definitely necessary, but I could live with silver.

    Yeah, totally agree. That would be an amazing display piece, hope it gets someones attention. If there was a line of these all done with the original box art as a template i would be in for the set.

    Sorry for the delay peeps but things have been off the chart busy and I’m so far behind getting new stuff out ... keeping up w previous products has been consuming any free time I have. Literally have like 4 new items to put out... updated stomp cannon, cell shaded windows, soundwave shoulder mod, new seeker stands... all kinds of stuff..
