    I just had a mental image of Optimus surrounded by a bunch of Ratchets.

    That gray oversized one would be better if, you know, it was actually the MPM and not ROTF again

    Maybe with improvements too? That way we don’t need to wait for someone like UT or AA to make their own. Also it doesn’t need to be that much larger. Just a centimeter or two to better match with Bee

    I've owned MPM-04 Takara version for a few months now but never got round to tabbing in the truck mode properly as I'm a bot mode fan.
    Anyway I gave it a go and mine seems to tab in generally quite well.
    Little bit of massaging here and there and going back and forth a few times when bits pop out but overall not too much trouble. 20171216_225402.jpg 20171216_225423.jpg 20171216_225511.jpg 20171216_225522 (1).jpg

    Still considering to sell my kidneys or something to attempt for a dank Takara copy. Even though I've developed an attachment with my almost functional Hasbro one...

    Also waiting to see how the KO turns out or if there's an overpriced premium paintjob surfacing with some different mold changes (mainly, the neck) too.

    Just got the Hasbro version (72401) from a local retailer and so far didn't have any issues with the tabbing. Went Emgo's route and took a few more minutes to carefully fiddle with it but it's good. A really cool figure in my opinion.

    In my mind, I debated changing Nute Gunray to Seth Sunthay, but in the end decided against it. Maybe next time

    Nope, no gaps. And that is on both sides.

    Anyone know if the Mr. Bucket set will work with the Takara version? I'm thinking that it looks morel like it was designed for the dark gray of the Hasbro one.
