    I didn't like the proportions at first but he can make a cute minibot in a MP-scale collection, may take him depending on the price

    Agreed. His blaster is the most interesting thing about him to me though.

    Your not wrong.

    I think problem with this is how blatant if a retool it is, it still has the same body structure as Siege Sideswipe. This is comparing it to Ectotron which is incredibly hard to tell is a Hotspot rework.

    I like it, but it looks...I dunno, basic...to me?
    It needs some sort of touchup or paint or something because it just looks like gobs of grey plastic.

    That’s because sharing a few joints doesn’t make ectotron a hot spot rework

    You are telling me Hasbro couldn’t spring for the licensing fee for the DMC badging? I knew when that was missing this wouldn’t be an official DeLorean product , but a loophole calling it the time machine like Jada. Playmobil paid to license the DMC logos.

    Siegeswipe is a good mold. It looks better than Ectotron.

    I'm guessing Toyhax could be convinced to make a sweet reprolables set for this, including a nice big windshield sticker to cover that up.

    And maybe they can fix this too.

    Bot mode is hideous, car mode looks good though. Reprolabels will fix that windshield at least.

    Much like Ecto-tron, the robot mode could use some paint... mostly the legs.

    Playmobil has a much lower budget for production meaning more money to spend on licensing.

    I hate being this guy and I know that everybody has a different view on retools/remolds/shared parts and ETC.

    But when it comes to Ectrotron and we want to be technical about it. When Warden and Co. were asked about it at toyfair 2019 during the Interview with all the media sites they made it a specific point that they took a Combiner Wars Onslaught and made it into Ectotron.
