    It's not 1 to 1 but this truck is comparable to a Peterbilt in terms of width en cab height.

    An MPM Blackout will be a challenge.

    Bro, you have too many run-ons, get some periods on that block of text.

    Read the bolded part before you go on a rant.

    Not really... a Peterbilt is 10'8" tall for the cab. That Oshkosh is close to 13' tall for the cab. That's a massive tank hauler that you won't see on public roads.

    Edit: Would've been an awesome Onslaught too.

    Imagine if Onslaught was the tank hauler AND the tank? That would've been neat.

    Never seen one in public (the Oshkosh) I did have the honor of seeing the Abrams in real life in a military museum.
    It’s a big tank but I thought it wasn’t that more massive than the trucks I saw the times I was in the US on vacation.
    Granted our tiny EU trucks are bad point of reference to compare to the US big rigs. :p 

    I’m no expert on military hardware, I was under the impression from the picture angle that the size wasn’t that far off.

    My bad!

    No worries. That being said, your pic does show how big the M1 is even compared to the Oshkosh.

    Ah, I just love how the first movie Cons grossly oversized the Bots. Buncha spiky bruisers, I want them all in MPM form

    I'm curious to see how HasTak intend to handle MPM Scorponok. That would be a fun watch

    I do wonder if they will ever do MPM Constructicons...

    Also... I'd like if they change the MPM packaging, to something more eye-catching. But that's just me.

    I think it could be neat to change the MPM packaging each time after they've completed a set of movie's characters.

    MV1 Megatron won't happen, there's a reason why Hasbro never used or brought it up.

    I agree. As of right now, it won't happen because there's no official announcement on it. It will be revealed when the bois are ready

    From the outside view, HasTak isn't doing anything substantial to suppress evidence that MV1 Megatron was once a thing, so I see no reason now why they wouldn't want to represent him. Or have at my wallet.

    Except it totally will. The MPM line was begun as a celebration of the 07 film. There's no way they won't do 07 megs

    Probably not.

    Unless they aren't able to combine.
    AlienAttack it's doing them and able to combine.

    I hope it turns out well.

    They don't have to combine. That would be cool if they could though.
