Don't hate, celebrate. ;)

If someone out there has longed for a replica eye, and this makes them happy, then God bless their soul. And we shall thank Dr. Wu for making their dream come true.

I think Dr. Wu seems to specializes in small cheap accessories in a tin you can buy on a whim. Not the $100 custom figures and armors/trailers. It's nice to see 3rd parties specializing.

Thats a pretty boring way that it's posed right there, I usually extend it with the extra white inner parts of the wings, and then bend each wing on its hinge to actually make it drape down and around his shoulders a bit. If done right, the end of the shoulder should line up with the highest point of the wings edge.

I hope someone makes the world leaders the Seekers eject in that episode where the Airealbots go back in time and witness the creation of Optimus Prime. Now that would be awesome, or hey how about B.O.T. or that bird crap to put onto Starscream.

Picked up the sarcasm, but did you know there is a group named "Spacepet" that was interested in releasing book-style packaging (mock-ups looked like Takara's G1 reissues during the early 2000s) for Classics figures and include a piece of "Autobot City" in each release? They were hoping to get Hasbro/Takara support, and would release 1 product a month for the next 4 years.

Unfortunately, a recent visit to their site (http://www.spacepet.com/) shows they are doing an update and there's nothing significant to spot. Not sure if they are still pursuing this project, but we may know more in approximately 51 days, based on the countdown on their front page.

I honestly love how everyone's ragging on this, but really this hurts nothing and is a good effort. Heck if anything this was one of the better season 3 episodes.

Look on the bright side: at least it's not meant to fit in Masterpiece Ghost Starscream's hands. o_O'

People are not making fun of the effort. The details are pretty good. People are baffled by the obscurity of the accessory. Perhaps if the creator could explain why he decided to design this product as opposed to one of the myriad of Transformers products and accessories that fans have been begging for - then people would be less critical.

You have to admit that Metroplex's eye is not a top priority for the average Transformers fan.

It seems Dr. Wu has moved to making more modern TF artifacts so he can cash in on TFPrime. The Forge of Solus Prime and the Saber of Prima seem to be in the works!
