    Having messed with some of Black Mamba\'s stuff before and after taking a look at this? This does look like an amazing piece. With that said, I do think KO companies should be at least a little cautious when taking that step into the world of mostly original 3P offerings since as we\'ve seen before from some companies who make that jump from upgrades to figures? If you rush in without putting your best foot forward then disaster is sure to strike.

    Find your inner compass. Loyalty is but a flower in the winds of fear and temptation.

    Would it kill someone to do original trilogy Optimus or even AoE Bumblebee? I'd love to see the wizardy behind making that figure.

    Hasbro has already given us many many original trilogy primes, so there isn't much of a need for a 3P one, especially with the MPM and a high-quality KO out recently. Knight prime literally only has two main line hasbro molds (not including armor knight and calibre variations), neither of which are accurate to the knight look and they both have serious flaws, so we need it way more.

    Also, this is just my personal opinion, but I don't really give a hoot about more Bumblebees, especially the AoE one which didn't look much like anything to me.

    What about him? He was OK but barely did anything in the movie and didn't have a single line and wasn't a real transformer. His deluxe SS toy is OK though.

    Although a proper masterpiece grade figure would be cool no?

    I guess? It's not exactly needed considering the deluxe is "good enough" to fill that spot. For something to get an MP there has to be demand for it and I really don't see that for Stinger, a character that like, what, a few seconds of actual screen time? Meh. Just give me a decent voyager of him, a reshell of ROTF Wideload (whatever his name was) into TLK Onslaught and call it a day on those too. They don't really need MPs, just an accurate enough representation.

    They don’t really but I’m not that impressed by the studio series version.

    I would rather see them, and 3ps, tackle more interesting characters like AOE Megatron and especially DOTM Megs. Studio series isn't meant as some sort of movie MP line, it's more like "movie Generations (before Generations went to shit)," that's probably why they're not "impressive."

    Wasn’t some obscure new company doing a dotm megs? Cause I’m all in for it! The only good version of that character was the botcon one and while I love him (I gave him a cloak!) he’s not the same.

    So, first time seeing this figure. The Robot Mode looks great. The legs and arms in particular look very accurate to the film. The Alt mode is just....okay. The proportions are off on the windows and cab, making it more like some military tank like vehicle than a Western Star shipping truck.

    I'm not impressed by the line in general. I don't quite understand that line and the MB line. Considering there's an MPM line that's very much alive, how many people do they expect to double or triple dip in these lines? The only figures I could see myself picking up from the SS line would be the leader class Grimlock and Blackout.

    Cause there’s no way in hell that some of those characters are gonna be released as MPMs. Also not everyone can afford having a massive collection of $100-$200 toys. Also, some of the studio series are really quite excellent.
