Probably because it would have made for a ginormous conehead. And if they'd shrunk it down to be more proportionate for the robot mode head, then the jet mode would have likely ended up with a humorously dinky nosecone that would have looked far too ridiculously small when compared to the rest of the realistic-looking jet body.


I will forever disagree. The classics toys did something simple but smart which the amsterpiece line could have ameliorated on:

And if it had to be a fake head they could have done a new mold to make a cleaner transformation that hides the nosecone. But no, instead they reused the same scheme from 10 years ago and just stick the nosecone in the back.


The MP Coneheads are not as bad as you're exaggerating them to be. Yeah, the Classics Coneheads did an interesting thing with the nosecone, but if you're making this big a deal out of a visible nosecone on the MPs, how well would an eternally visible face in jet mode sit with you? And that's just if they maintained the thing from the Classics design. If they made a jet nosecone helmet type thing, the nosecone would be too big and it would look dumb.It also makes the jet mode of the Classics Coneheads look short and, I think, bad.
I've got Ramjet and Thrust, and with exceptionally little effort have managed to position the jet nose in such a way that only by expressly looking to see it is it visible, and even then it's not much. It being black lets it hide itself between Ramjets' thighs, and it is surprisingly unifying visually with the black of Thrusts' chest. I think the visibility is more of an issue on Dirge because the color is grey instead of black, and I'm not sure why the nose doesn't plug in the way it did on the original MP Seeker mold.

I have to say, the official MP Coneheads might be a little polarizing, but I don't think it can be argued that Takara Tomy didn't try to stay faithful to the source material. I personally am a big fan of how Thurst and Dirge Look. Ramjet is still growing on me though. Just feels like something is missing with him.
