    I just realized the mini-figures are articulated. That's gonna make this a $320 figure.

    This isn't a render.

    Renders?

    Look again. I guess that's the ultimate compliment.

    Not bad, but lots of details that I don't like compared to FT's.

    Goofy accessories are neat, but nothing I would ever actually use.

    ok so have to say that this looks really good, especially the finish. FT's does look cleaner though I have to say. theres a couple areas where FT's is better to me. the clear chest piece for one is a big deal to me. Also the hips...or upper thigh cuts - don't like the magic square style (Their prime) diagonal cuts as much. whoever gives me a black microchange/magnificus version first is getting my money though. i'm just nitpicking at this point...unless XTB's can't go down fully into tank mode and only has canon mode. that would be....tragic. much like FT's bad decision there on the 1.0.

    also kudos on straight to colored proto reveal. xtb has beeng doing too many render releases for stuff that won't be coming for a while this past week. hope this will be out soon.

    Usually I'd agree but I'll use the shit out of those mini figs if the quality is there.

    His head isn't small, rather it's his body that's a bit too bulky and I am not sure why they did it like that.

    This looks better than the FT version IMHO. I was hesitant to preorder it. The accessories are amazing. Also hilarious that this may beat Tesla 2.0 to market based on not being a render.

    Woah, this isn't even a render, this is a fully painted sample, so this must be near-ish completion. They kept that quiet.

    I actually think the face sculpt is good but the helmet sculpt is a bit too narrow maybe? If you could combine the face of this with the helmet of Tesla that would possibly look better.

    Factoring in those awesome accessories, if the price is right I'm definitely keen, especially if it undercuts the FT price.

    Very interested to see how the two will compare now.

    It'll be interesting to see who gets theirs out first. Tesla 2.0 is due in November so XTB would need to start actual production within the next month or so to beat them. If they can do that and not muck it up AND come in under Tesla's $230 cost substantially they'll make a killing.

    Whatever the reason, Im finding it really jarring. The head looks like a bad digibash its so out of proportion with the body.

    The hands are the same size as the helmet. He can stuff his head in his fore-arm…

    Really wasn't expecting this from XTB.

    It looks really good and ready to go! The different faces and all those accessories are convincing me to grab this.

    Sorry, habit of calling the images renders. "If I collected marketing photos..."
    Regardless, I just don't want to be let down by another XTB rug-pull product that looks great but is a physical disappointment that either breaks, crumbles, or has floppy joints.

    I don't like the metallic on the eyes, but everything else looks good. I think I prefer the overall colors here to the FT version. If it's priced lower than FT, I might bite.
