    Those faces are for Youth Menasor, not their Springer. They've had to do some colour corrections on that as well so I guess the post was meant to show they're working on both :D 

    Win win here, Springer is looking a lot better in those colours now, and the Youth Menasor faces needed to be silver.

    They matched the greens and yellows well enough. Nearly forgot this has an LED feature.

    It looks like they just forgot to paint the back half of it.

    I'm curious how the ankles perform. I have both the ft and mmc and they both suffer in that regard.

    I'm ok with prioritising bot mode (or maybe even car and bot mode) with the gray tail section, but if at all possible without compromising bot mode too much, at least *some* paint would be appreciated. If nothing else a bit of darker gray for the hub of the fenestron? Or maybe a slightly different shade of gray for some sections, like the tail fins?

    Yeah but one solid color of prototype shade grey looks terrible.

    Yeah I get that, but it's such a sharp division it really looks like a before/after split picture.

    Apache managed to keep the base of the helicopter tail green and keep the robot mode legs grey... It's a shame that this one isn't... What bothers me is not the grey tail, it is the abrupt change between the green body and the tail... The transition should be smoother.

    XTB don't change a thing, this looks fantastic already we don't need unnecessary delay for more tweaks.
    Changing something now might cause more issues in another mode that cause more delays or spoil something that's already near perfect.

    Awesome work let's see it this year, please!

    I'm waiting to see how the robot mode looks with the new colors. I could get it. XTB seems to have a very long list of very promising figures :-D

    This. So very much this.

    Never gonna please everyone but looking at those pics the robot mode colours are gonna be nigh on perfection, as long as they've got the pale green parts right.

    I would’ve gone with a lighter blue for the cockpit, and slightly yellow-er green for the light green, but definitely a major improvement over the first batch of pics.

    As for the tail being grey, I for one certainly don’t mind it. There’s no way to get grey legs with a green tail without either the headache that is fanstoys, or the added expense of a Takara price tag. Both of which would have half of this thread foaming at the mouth. For a good experience at a price that won’t piss people off, compromises have to be made.

    The back of Ft Apache's calf is as colorful as a rainbow, while xtb springer has its calf 360 degree pure grey.
    Not mentioning Ft's alt mode still has way more grey exposed compared with the show.
    PS: Sculpt accuracy wise, Xtb alt mode destroys Ft's, the sleek feeling of tail and fin is pure awesome!

    Agree, sacrifices have to be made. Triple changers are beast to get perfect in all 3 modes. I am waiting to see what geniuses can figure out Sandstorm.

    I plan on painting the cockpit lighter blue if I get this. Really hoping this turns out well.

    What the hell is up with X-Transbots and this figure? It has been waaaaaayyyyy too long! When we had to pay off our balance and add more money to their questionable price change, I thought that meant that this guy would release soon. But, NOPE. They want to release all the junkion figures, and like a dozen other figures. Ibot, why don’t you just release this already before announcing all your new releases?! Have we not waited long enough? Five damn years man! Ri-dick-cu-lous!!! Even though you made that huge change to the chest vents, I’ll still get it. Bad design choice, but it is what it is. Not happy about it, but I just want this figure already with good QC. It’s just frustrating for them to give updates on Locke, and all their other figures, but we don’t know a damn thing about Virtus’ status and release date. Can you stop being mysterious X-Transbots and just give us information? You haven’t even shown a current robot mode! Wtf is that? Makes me wonder what the issue they found was? It better not be another Locke situation. They should know better than to do that with us. They need to redeem themselves. Sorry guys. Just wanted to rant about this. I just want them to stop dicking us around. Rant over.
