    Odd that the concept art had such good colors but the final went with weird-ass choices

    Looks like the foot structure changed from design to production.
    Bummer.

    Yup. Original plan was to have an ankle joint as well as separate pivots for the toes and heel.

    But I get why that was cut. It's similar to articulated fingers. A nice to have feature, but if you need to keep costs down that's a bit too granular to support.

    Kind of a shame that Prime and soundwave don't have the ab crunches that appear to be in the articulation blueprints.

    Gotcha, that's fair. Just wanted to make sure you knew there were promo photos of the figure.

    Did you miss that I was replying to Gumblor?

    Ignore feature strikes again. I'll delete. Sorry for the confusion.

    Shame for the line in general. This is the level of articulation they needed to be interesting. The budget cuts have made them pointless.

    Well, he won't know you've quoted him if that's the case. You have same avatar as another user, roadpig-something, maybe a case of mistaken identity?

    ahhhh, you may have something there. i can't remember roadpig saying anything nasty, but perhaps it is him or someone else with a Cy-Kill profile pic that he confused me with.

    I'm just wondering if Bee and Arcee could look good in a display or will they be too tall?

    Concept art looks great. Shame they diverged from it quite a bit with the actual figure.

    They knocked it out of the park with Arcee, but failed spectacularly with Cheetor and his demon face.

    I appreciate getting an explanation for why they went with PVC over ABS though pictures I've seen of figures warped in box slightly frighten me

    The original design for Optimus had a froward crunch.
