    I think that's to help differentiate the two. Most folk might try to paint the abs, say, but changing so many bits means you're unlikely to be sold a v1 when you buy a v2.

    Now, I got a refund, so where's those preorders?

    So tempted to order one.

    2 Fun to transform? Nope
    3 Is this the better than FT? Probably.

    I've just asked them when to expect the pre orders to go up (as I won't be replaced in the same way). That'll give an idea of when you'll get some info, hopefully...

    This is looking a lot better. I already have Koot but I may actually get this guy now. Maybe.

    Cpl of obvious differences in alt mode showing how more solid it holds together but these 2 pics are striking for me:

    He looks slightly darker and closer to the Movie but.....

    Dayum son. The abs alone make such a difference. Gonna look sweet as fuck stood next to Virtus and their Perceptor.

    Edit - tempted to paint up my OK v1 to the grey s3 cartoon version.

    Dang, this looks really good. Barring any last minute QC disasters, I'm definitely back on board.

    My answer in the last hour or so:

    We will list the preorder as soon as XTB gives a solid release date.

    Make of that what you will...

    Would you look at that. They even corrected the dark piece on the side. Good job, XTB.

    Edit: Just finished the video and it's looks a hell of a lot better paintwise. Still not 100% on the small fender pieces and wrist clips but i'm a lot more confident in this. Perhaps it's time to give this a 2nd chance?

    Muchhhhhh better, you can tell even besides the design revisions the look of kup and the targetmasters the appearance looks polished smoother finish. It was a long wait but finally it’s done can’t wait for the release.

    Thank you @ibot

    Watching people talk about being all in on Locke 2.0, despite what we all got with 1.0, because a single copy that was sent out for review isn't hot garbage and it has painted abs now, like,

    It’s pretty easy to trick MP collectors into buying things. Much like in real life, If you keep promising things, you don’t need to actually deliver on anything, they’ll just buy in anyways.
