Yeah please dull the metallic paint. I have no problem with a matte finish on Kup.
I really hope they hope matte final color version also. If it stays like this I won't be replacing Ft Koot.
Whoa, that's like the shiniest masterpiece ever. And he's supposed to be the oldest most scuffed up character
Without having MP28 or a ruler to hand, 19cm bot height would make it closer to Ironhide height rather than level with MP28 in that picture wouldn't it? I would be OK with that tbh. I always felt MP28 was a bit short. However it scales I'll be in on this as I want a Kup and this could well turn out better than Koot. No way am I paying the £300 late tax for that either.
I quite like the shiny colours, makes him stand out as part of a different breed of autobots, this guy makes me want to collect a movie bot group now was originally gonna stop at season 2 since I wasn't much of a fan of the Cybertron alt modes
looks way better than the other option....just sayin. the colors/finish will need a tweek but not a bad start. the other option has a stupid split in his chest window piece and bad coloring choices...this one gets both of those things better. the sculpting looks good too even if its not 100% toon shape. i never decided what to do with season 3 bots myself but kup would be on the list of characters i woudln't mind having.
Still looking good. I can't wait for reviews.
Shoulders are too broad but otherwise he looks pretty good. Damn nice alt mode. I'm not a fan of toon matte but this paint job is definitely too far in the opposite direction - glad it's not final.
I'm interested to know more about those hands. I see an extra hinge at the top of the fingers. I wonder does the whole hand hinge there (wrist flex) or just the top of the hand. I'd guess it's the latter and it's for transformation and the mention of extra hands refers to optional, non-transforming parts. But that's pure speculation - I guess we'll see when he gets closer to release.
The Metallic needs to be toned waaaaay down. Would look completely out of place with any of the current offerings for the rest of the cast
Dudes that paint looks so tragic......yikes!
Any idea when they're making the toon colored one? This one looks like the Trap rapper edition.
Seems to be about as good as Koot.
The post itself states the colours are temporary and it's just a quick hand painted prototype. Ibot also confirmed a page or two back that the final figure won't be shiny metallic after the pictures that were posted on Saturday. I was concerned too when they were posted then, but we already know it wont be an issue come release.
I would so get this...IF they ditched that hedious paint job...not only is it too shiny...its also too damned dark.
Xtransbots...listen to your buyers...change the colors..this thing will sick out like a sore thumb in anyone's collection.
As others have said, just to add to opinions and hopefully influence the final product, please do not have that horrible metallic paint job in the final product. Please just paint the darn figure like it was in the movie/series, which is not like the images released so far. The rest looks ok. If the final paint looks like the images above, I will not purchase it.
Amazing how many people don't read back before they comment.
He agreed that it will have paint similarly to aegis, which Imo is still to much. 90% of the released movie bots are matte(koot, tak rodimus/hotrod, ultra magnus, KFC wreck gar, mmc saltus and azalea), the rest have tiny tiny bit of metallic flek(Apache, rouge, hoodlum, parts of blurr.
Anything more than that will look largely out of place
The only reason everything else gets away with it is because takara goes high gloss on most figures or there hasn't been a set standard.
Has anyone mentioned the paint yet?
19 cm.... should be exactly as tall as Koot.
