    On closer inspection, yeah I think they should revise the heads a little bit - the mouthguards should be wider and more box-y, therefore should make the side vents of the face thinner. The nose also shouldn't widen out towards the bottom but should be pretty straight from top to bottom (if they want to be toon accurate). The top part of Runamuck's head should also be more square instead of rounded but that's not too big a gripe since they are supposed to be mostly identical. Pretty early still so there's probably time to make changes like these.

    Looks pretty good.
    Runamuck's body is a bit bland looking and could do with a bit more surface details, and the trans am front end looks a bit wierd. Some models do seem to have a fairly high lifted nose but maybe the thickness of that undersection showing through looks odd.
    The car modes overall are beautiful though, especially Runabout.

    And Runamuck (white one) has clean face plate, Runabout has the chin nub.

    Right now, both renders have it

    My first reaction: Yes! Finally!!!!
    My second thought: Oh, from XTB...ok....

    They've proven that they can do carbots, their Stunticons are pretty good. But no way I'm going to place a preorder. Either this will be one of their solid releases. Then I'll get them. If they fail, at least another company will feel encouraged to design their own R&R.

    Every Transformer looks like a pancake from the side.

    One thing XTB has over others especially FT is the alt modes especially cars are pretty and close to accurate. It's like the artist googled what a real car looks like.

    Man, do they have a super skinny half-width head?

    Thought I should just ask directly: any chance the heads could be revised to be more accurate to the cartoon (i.e. I've mentioned wider faceplates, straighter nose and someone else mentioned chin differences)? Would definitely put a PO on these if that's possible! :)
