    Is it unpainted or something? What's up with the black arms and silver chest? And it looks so disjointed articulation-wise. I wish I could reserve opinions for something more final, but maybe this is final. It doesn't look like the same company compared to how outstanding the other four look.

    It's an early unpainted prototype which shows where diecast is being used (the silver parts).
    Agreed.

    Yeah, that looks goofy af and his broken waist just accentuates the awkwardness. Photos 2, 3, and 4 look like he needs to make a workers' compensation claim over his waist injury resulting from try to pose like a kewl japanese anime.

    That makes sense. Hoping it really turns out better than first impression, but FT set a high bar in the looks department. Now where's my yam at...

    Well that's erm.... wha..what happened? The carbots look so good and the old render of Motormaster looked pretty good but that thing just looks bad. @Autobrat Leader called it disjointed and that pretty much sums it up. The shoulders and knees just look wrong. The hollow feet: yech! I hope this isn't anywhere near final.

    I like FT's better. This guy's chest reminds me of MP-10. Too heroic. Also what's up with the feet? I mean a lot of things seem to hinge on the .... hinge connecting the shin to the foot.

    Looks pretty great to me, although I wish the waist was a little shorter to be more anime accurate.

    I don't understand why they posed him so oddly, but I do love that we're seeing ab crunches be a normal thing now.

    Still wanting to see price though with the trailer.

    It looks good so far. Tough crowd in here...clearly the figure is no where near final and is missing many key parts.

    Excited to see the continued progress. That being said...I'll watch the b/s/t threads to look for anyone who decides to bail based off the latest motormaster pics

    Waiting for the day when an ab crunch doesn’t break a sculpt.

    The proportions seem completely different from that. In particular, look at how much mass is in the torso now, in the new photos it makes him look kind of like a great ape instead of Motormaster. And with a backpack that deep, he's going to be in both the first and second row on a shelf, lol.

    Besides the colours, he has the detailing and proportions of the coloured render. Looks good to me. A little bit taller than MP-10. I am very surprised with the amount of articulation specially in the feet. Well done! Some great looking group poses can be made!

    Now on to alt mode pictures! :D

    Baba has just received his stock of XTB G2 Flipout in on his EBay store. He's assigning tracking numbers to the preorders now and Ebay has updated the preorders as shipped.
    Just waiting for the tracking number to become active.

    Also, Baba's new in stock price is now bumped by $6. It is now $70.88 shipped. However, you can still get the preorder price (actually $5 off instead of $6 off) if you use his $5 off $70 option. Sign into ebay on your desktop or laptop. Then click this link.
    Extra $5 off $70+ - old customers exclusive sale - eBay bababobo00712 store

    Paint and poses can go a long way to how a figure comes across. We'll see how it looks when it's painted and not posed so silly.

    I’m sure he’ll look great once he’s all painted up
