Things MP10 is doing that makes it cartoon innacurate>different head (shape of the mouthplate, shape of the helmet "visor", etc.)>different chest windows shape>stylized waist>grey and silver instead of flat white>longer arms>crotch isn't a flat plate>stylized thight shape>more surface detail>things MP10 that tries to be accurate to toy or other sources
Nobody is saying that it's trying to be accurate to other sources. MP-10 takes cues from the cartoon, but it's also it's own take on the G1 Optimus Prime design.>The cartoon IS an idealized version of the original design
You know there can be different idealizations of a single design, right? It all depends of the designer. The MP-01 was an idealization too back then and it's pretty different from MP-10 proportion-wise.
If the MP-10 is so cartoon accurate as you say, why do you think it looks weird compared to MP-36 Megatron? It's obviously because Megatron is cartoonized as fuck and MP-10 is not. It has more detail and a different style overall. If you can't see something so obvious there's nothing I can do.
I like the MP-10, but saying it tries to look like the cartoon and nothing more it's ridiculous. Even more so when you compare it with more recent Masterpieces like Inferno, Megatron or the Beast Wars guys that are cartoon-accurate as fuck.
