Yup, a few mistranformations. I'm not seeing the interior you're referencing. Which pic?

I sure hope so. That massive hollow roof would have received complaints even on a deluxe toy.

That's the whole point to the Masterpieces (or, one of them). To be as show-accurate to the cartoon models as humanly possible.

From comparing images of MP Sideswipe and Red Alert with MP-10 to reality, it looks like they will be just a hair taller than their Classics counterparts in robot mode. It does look like the car mode will be a bit longer and flatter than the Classics version (I don't know how this compares to the relative size and proportions of the Countach to the Diablo).

Edit: Crappy phonecam shot:

They will be comparable in size to current "Voyagers', perhaps. :KREMZEEK:

Not sure about the Diablo, but according to Wikipedia, the Countach is actually smaller than the Gallardo.

Front view of the car, you can see 'seats' through the window. I'm sure it's not much of an interior like the Alternators, more like the one on Rodimus, but it still looks somewhat like a car interior. 8)
