Hounds "smile" face reminds me of something from Invasion of the Body Snatchers :lol:

I don't know what it is but there is just something about Smokescreen's aesthetic that makes him so much more appealing than Prowl & co.

This also confirms that MP Blackarachnia is staying displayed in Bot Mode, forever. That mish-mash of joints with legs, is probably the worst Beast Mode to date. At least from the front.

I think what separates Smokescreen from his moldmates largely comes down to three major factors. The first being his general color scheme. Apart from the basic fact that red, yellow, and blue are the three primary colors and are just naturally appealing to us, his colors also pop more than Prowl’s black and white and Bluestreak’s black and silver. The other major factor is that head sculpt. He’s got a lot of character compared to the old head. Largely do to the smaller and more tightly grouped facial features. It makes that chin really jut out, giving him a more confident, commanding presence. The third is swapping out the black parts for more of a charcoal grey. That softens up his appearance, and separates him from the non-plus MP figures. He’s not quite as severe.

Hounds front wheel gaurds look a little bit wonky, hopefully they connect in place better.

Black Arachnia beast mode...I thought the pic was some kind of Megabolt Megatron redeco or something -need to see it from more angles because that def isnt a good one. Maybe if they had worked under the supervision of arachnid enthusiaists it might have been better :P

I don't know how you can mess up something as simple as a spider???

Yeah, Blackarachnia looks killer in bot mode but alt mode is well less than stellar. I like the added canopy accessory for hound, adds a unique look to alt mode.

:MAXIMAL:

Ha, cool.

I do think they should have made his eyes bigger though.

So, a theoretical question.

If HasTak said 'Yes' to Masterpiece Combiner Teams tomorrow, how would you like them to be made? A HasLab priced boxset? A one in five releases figure? Or even something really atypical akin to a Legends Build-A-Figure IE pieces included with a given number of MP releases??

If Takara would make MP combiners, they could go the Studio Series route. Release the members one at a time over months or years. To soften the blow, they should release the Scramble City combiners first. One :BOT: and one :CON: teams at the same time, one pair of bots at a time. I'd vote for Bruticus VS Defensor first.

This would be the best method.

I too would want them to go one release at a time over the course of a year or so. That would be the smart choice. Don't slam them all out at once either

It's not just a matter of overwhelming the customer. The toy makers themselves would make one hell of a gamble to spend YEARS doing the concept, prototyping, and manufacturing 5 over-engineered bots. Then they would release the team as a 1000$ set and not many would be able to buy the thing. Resulting in HasTak losing money and cancelling the combiners altogether.

So, one bot at a time, slowly, is the best solution for both the customer and the manufacturer.

At the very least, the Aerialbot limbs could share some engineering to save on engineering costs.

There's also the scale issue with Devastator. Each members would be as big as Optimus and would most likely be 250$-300$ EACH as a result.

If I'm right, they mentioned about using some ideas they had for an eventual MP-Devastator for the UW.

Hasui had design ideas for a potential MP Devastator and used those ideas in designing UW Devastator, as it was determined that UW Devastator would probably be the closest opportunity Hasui would get in actually making a MP Devastator.

Do you think he meant that as "I probably won't be working here anymore by the time Takara will design a MP Devastator" or as "it's basically impossible that we'll see a MP Devastator due the costs of producing it"?
