:BOT: :KREMZEEK: Beautiful, I love the asthetics, and the scale.....has taken me a while to get used to but it makes sense after all MP-09 and MP-10 setting the bar for scale. I LOVE IT I must have Red Alert as well......I was going to get the Beezleboss Red Alert upgrade for classics but not now. BY THE WAY JUST RECEIVED IN CYCLOPS from MM....AMAZINGLY AWESOME and so is mini me. :CON: :KREMZEEK:

Looks pretty good! Too bad the shot's not a bit bigger so we can see some detail. I guess this confirms no rubber tires. :( Oh well, still looks nice.

BTW El Duque, your avatar is amazing! :D

So what are we expecting? Above or below the Binaltech standard?

He does look very basic but I suppose it is very G1.

I have my pre-order in.

Being a Masterpiece has gotta make it above Binaltech. It's just smaller.

Even the Hybrid Style figures were above Binaltech (almost at Masterpiece level) and those were Scout class sized.

I'll probably buy this guy the same way I bought MP Grimlock. I'll put it off until there are haven't been any masterpieces produced in a while, then when I get him wonder why I didn't get him sooner. Lol.

Not exactly. Maybe THS-01, but THS-02 has a beautiful bot mode and pathetic alt mode. BTs have beautiful alt modes and varying degrees of decency for bot modes.

I meant as far as complexity and intricacy.

True. Though, how do the Alternity figures compare? More, less, the same as the BTs? Before Alternity came along, I had the top four complex lines down to the following:
  • Masterpiece
  • Hybrid Style
  • Binaltech/Alternators
  • Revenge of the Fallen

The Alternity figures are kinda two-fold, at least Convoy and Megatron. The front and middle sections have Automorph, the arms are straight-forward, it's the back end that's complicated. It's like a folding puzzle with hollow legs as a result.

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Grimlock, Hightower and Wedge (Heavy Load acquired)
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Comparable in complexity, but different. BTs seemed to pay more attention to the interiors and panel lines making them look like model cars...Alternity only seem to where convenient.

Although THS, I wonder how complex they really are and how much of it is perceived due to their size. Blow them up to a size you can actually get your fingers on the parts and they might seem a bit less involved.
