    I take it that none of the KFC hands world work on Despotron?

    Robh, have you gotten the modfans cannon atrached? I'm thinking of doing the same if it's not too much hassle. The only thing I don't like about Despotron is that his fusion cannon is just Abit too long for my taste.

    I'm thinking this beefy Optimus by MS Toys might look good with our Despo

    Despotron kicks the TT one's ass, forget contender. That thing looks so derpy with its huge black diapers and squished upper torso.

    Despotron remains my MP Megatron. It will take one helluva a new figure to replace him.

    So happy to see this guy still gets some love. He’s my MP Megs too. The TT is undeniably an impressive figure but is just too toony. I always thought Despotron, with his more intimidating and menacing build, captured the feel of the character more.

    Has anyone tried to use the ModFans Fusion Cannon with Despotron? One of my small nitpicks (other than the helmet not being G1 toon enough) with Despo is that his fusion cannon is too large. I think the ModFans fusion cannon would be the perfect size but not sure how hard it would be to mod it to work with Despotron.

    If someone figures it out I’d love to know. The mod was beyond my skill set.

    Buddy I'm sure i have, probably when images first got released for mp36 and maybe a few times now and again when comparisons come up.
    People can like whatever fig they want, but i can't stand when members start getting attacked just for having a stern view, just makes those attackers seem like babies.
    Also, i say it and then leave it alone, I get not reigning on others' parades. Leave the feedback and move on, pretty much how I like to do things, even if that feedback is rough on some tender bums.

    Well said. I have a similar rule- say it once and leave the thread. If I don’t like the fig then there’s really no reason for me to be in there repeatedly shitting on it. let them enjoy their shit, but I expect the courtesy be returned :thumb
