Very excited to see Groove is incoming at ShowZ!
It's not a base mode.
I think the description in the news article is misleading people due to its wording. It says that Paragon splits in two which is true but some how when split in two becomes the med bay. Somehow it says the figure splits in half into three parts.
XTB can definitely make beautiful prototypes. They really make me want to jump in, but the final finish of the product is always super disappointing for me.
I was assuming that each limb would have a 2nd mode (for instance a helicopter pad for Blades) and then they could all clip to the central torso.
Either was I'm digging what I'm seeing. My previous post was made precoffee.
Sad that the skeleton arm transforms into a repair bay instead of double-barreled cannons.
But he does look nice.
Still leaning towards MMC's offering though
Nice First Aid. I'm glad I chose X-Transbots over MMC for my Defensor. MMC has looked good, but been too small. I have a feeling a bigger and better MP Defensor will be coming out in the next few years, but as of right now X-Transbots is the best MP option IMO.
Same, MMC is Godly
I still don't understand how the EMERGENCY letters are working, lol. It's confirmed the van splits how I always thought - the faux part is on the bicep piece, but can't explain how the lettering is split how it is in the combined mode render. I think the combined mode render just can't be right, and the whole word EMERGENCY will be on the forearm part.
Agreed. I think we'll definitely see changes to the combiner skeleton before full release and I'm pretty confident that deco choice will be one of them.
that’s unfortunate as one of the reasons I like your Paragon much more than the competition is that he has real windows not just painted on (which I do not find very premium or masterpiece-like).
On the other hand you’re doing the scale I like the most for both seperate bots and combined mode and I love the medical bed so overall I’m still impressed! Any reason for the window change?
I liked the original rendering with the blue translucent windows. The blue color is nice and matches Jocund's windscreen. If the windows were tinted darker then you wouldn't see so much robot inside. If the windows do need to be opaque then finding a good match to this shade of blue would be my first choice. I believe the complaints I've heard about MMC is that some windows are tinted and others are painted opaque. I think fans would want them consistent one way or the other.
Edit: I wouldn't mind the front windscreen and the two side doors staying this translucent blue and the four side windows looking into the back of the ambulance be opaque as that's what a real ambulance could have. Normally people can't see into the back where patients are bleeding.
So you won't be doing it translucent? That's kind of ashame as it looks a lot better than an opaque would, I'd seriously stick with it if you can.
Maybe the middle windows got too many stress marks or possibly broke during transformations? That window looks like a puzzle with all of the interlocking parts.
so translucent pale blue tinted windows? don't go opaque, whatever u do. it is unsightly.
do they hold their weight? or it just feels looser than you'd like it to feel? i Don't like the way my fuzz feels but his shoulder joint ratchets hold their own weight (with handgun) just fine. i kinda really think fuzz is the worst carbot xtb has ever put out though.
i think he means he will do it in the final, in contrast to the prototypes? i can't tell either, which is why i responded and asked. that being said, still not sold on the set.
Well I just paid off Groove. Eager to see how that figure is in hand.
Who is this "WE" of which you speak??
There might be a few of YOU, but I don't want it any other way with this team.
They hold their own weight but the whole shoulder area doesn't seem stable to me and feels looser than i'd like it to feel. I'm sure it'll be fine but it spooked me a little. Ultimately it will live is Gestalt Mode eventually so it really won't matter.
