Composite image from Twitter that we can make out of the reveal so far (with Ground Dion's Command ship stayed intact afterall in the mid torso). This is pretty faithful to the vintage design, just modernized. All the main shapes like the glass panel chest, shoulders, and head remain very similar. Though the top half doesn't seem to add a lot of height to it, so Robot Base will definitely shorter than the newer Fort Max.
Though as excited as I am seeing this reveal, I can't help but feel the whole Cloud Across top half looks a tad oversized. I scaled it down to around 15-20% smaller in Photoshop, and the whole things look a lot more balanced, based on that first full body photo. But it could also be the camera FOV distorted it a bit, can't tell until more photos to compare. But if that is the case, hopefully it is not too late to make some last minute tweaks before going into production.
About the height, 62cm is indeed a tad taller than titan Fort Max (1-2cm taller), though have a feeling they are counting from the head cannons/antennae, not the top of head height. As the legs clearly are shorter than Fort Max's, and the revealed Cloud Across didn't add a lot on the torso height.
Can't wait to find out its features and transformations. Now where is the preorder?!!!
Big shoutout to TogeAtama for his awesome inspiring base setup, and got his permission to play with one of his photos.
Was trying to figure out the height of the GRB robot mode when placed in a base setup like his. Photoshopped a matching prototype photo with his, then got a bit carried away and did this piece. Not a very clean execution since the resolution of the images are quite different, but this will have to do for now. Hopefully I'll be able to build a cool base like this, by the time I get my hands on the Cloud Across.
New photos showing the main bridge (actually looks like a legit bridge). Looks like it has an elevator that connects straight down to the Ground Dion's escalator. Looking awesome! Though not a fan of the Dia-nauts color choices. Pretty random, and the white female Captain is using the old body unfortunately.
I don't own the vintage but always coveted it...this will be very nice to own...though, I think singularly, as a unit, this would top the scales as the most expensive toy I own...and no gokin. Both LOL and sigh.
