    Yes, exactly. It's a good thing everybody knows and understands this...

    ...um...? Do you guys literally just look at the pictures and skip right to throwing out comments? You see those weird shapes before and after the pictures? Those are letters and when they go together they make words. Words go together and they make sentences. And those sentences very clearly state that, not only is this paint scheme not final but the final one won't even be close to this. How freaking difficult is this to understand?!

    Wait. You guys are trolling, right? Trying to get a rise out of the rest of us? Hahahahaha, good one. I knew there was no way anybody could be that obtuse. Right? Guys? I mean @PurpleAndBlackSmokeStacks you even say "as others have said" which means you read the thread and you know better, right?

    Picture says colours are temporary hand painted. Essentially not final. Ppl then respond colour is shit and they won't buy it.

    You can't make this shit up. Reading comprehension. It's a wonderful, if seemingly difficult for some, thing

    I don’t know if I’d even call it paint, it looks like he was caught in an oil spill and someone rescued him from a beach. It’s hard to even define a colour scheme.

    I guess we’ve never seen temporary colours this jarring before from any company.

    I thought I was content with some of FT's movie cast offerings, but I'm finding myself replacing more and more with MMC, official, and possibly XTB now.

    Ok. So does that mean the preceeding words don't mean a thing?

    Me too.

    I was content on having FT essentially take over my movie bots but Kup and Springer look to potentially dislodge them. Alongside the Junkions and Blaster the balance starts to swing. Who knows what'll come after that.....

    No one reads shit anymore. Not just here, that fucking epidemic is everywhere.

    Anyhow, shoulders are a bit of an eyesore but it may very well be the pose/lighting/ugly as hell NOT FINAL colors that is giving that illusion.

    We'll see.

    Why does anyone think that anyone didn't read anything? This is the first colours we've seen on the character and they're weird. Whether they're final or not, it's going to be what people talk about. If he had a duck on his head and a disclaimer that the duck wont be in the final product, there would still be a fair amount of discussing why he had a duck on his head.

    Well the reaction seems to point to that!

    Ppl need to stop and think. Consider a response after reading a post.

    Didnt keep my FT Koot because he was matte colors....

    Hoping XTB can do gloss finish, or light metallic, whichever looks best and pristine looking.

    If its inline with aegis, im okay with it. Aegis is not ridiculously shinny, and no one is saying they cant release a 'cartoon' variant like they are doing with aegis later.

    Agree with most others... that shiny paint is weird, unnecessary and I hope it doesn't stick around.

    I’m sure they’ll get the paint job right in the end. I’m more interested in the fact that they seem to be including upgrades for Mp-28. New hands, a target master, and possibly even a smaller backpack?!?

    I dislike ANY IDW parts for figures from the original series. Would it be awesome if they threw in some Bayverse parts with their figures? No - that's a different canon/mythos/alterniverse.

    That'sss....... a different take.

    Never thought of that. Might be cool if they sculpted and or used different paint tones to indicate wear and corrosion. Never gonna happen.

    That's because that's what he should have.

    It doesn't appear hand-painted. Can you do a pearl/metal flake paint job with a brush, without brushstrokes, clumping, thinness, etc.? I would guess it was actually sprayed.

    Why use colors/paint that won't appear on the actual product? That's no better than a gray and clear plastic test-shot, in regard to showing progress to customers.

    You, uh, you have seen the original Transformers animated series? Kup is not pristine. He's the opposite of pristine. He's an old shitpiece.

    That's reminds me that I need to put Koot up for sale. What good is a transforming robot figure you'll never transform? Of course, that also describes MP-47...

    A couple things, just because you don’t like the IDW homage, doesn’t mean someone else won’t. The figure comes with a box for you to leave it in. As for the colors, it wouldn’t be the first time (and probably won’t be the last time) XTB has shown of colors that aren’t final. They did the same thing with motormaster initially, it’s just part of their process.
