    Yup. Except the head sculpt, the rest is pretty much a clear winner. But the product finishing quality...I think there is still long way to come closer to fanstoys.

    That... looks good, actually far better than what I expected.

    Wait a minute. This is shipping in Robot Mode?

    Very weird. I can't remember the last XTB figure that came in Robot Mode?

    He's looking really good. Not 100% perfect, there are a few nitpicks, but overall by far the best MP Kup out there. I still wish he were about $20-30 cheaper, but I will probably still end up getting him. Will be fantastic to get one step closer to completing the Movie lineup in MP (still need a Gnaw, and still waiting for another company to take a stab at Wheelie).

    dirty photoshop couldn't get the colour right with the colour replace tool kept coming out too light or grey even tho i used the eyedropper ( shit with photoshop ) so had to use the paint brush but i prefer it like this, wonder how hard it would be to get a small pot of paint off xtb?

    Fairly pointless post then, particularly given that, as multiple people have observed, the animation model has those 'windows':

    Kup's alt mode is crap anyway and while neither FT or XTB is completely accurate, XTB's is closer. The XTB bot mode is much nice all round though, which is all I care about so I have zero regrets ordering this (and Virtus is shaping up nicely with the revised colours).

    Then why don't you save the $150 and just display your old slipper? ;)

    Do both! My Christmas presents last month were Unicron and a pair of slippers.

    He does look really blue now. But man, that mold looks clean.

    I wonder why XTB seems to have so much trouble with colors sometimes, even to the point of asking fans for help. Shouldn't be that hard to nail down.

    It's so distinctive, I completely agree that alt mode is a great way to display the character. My Studio Series version is currently displayed this way.

    Nice, just checked mine and it's awaiting dispatch. but that's probably because they need to pack it with the trailer and accessories.
