    Not without notifying your gastroenterologist first anyway

    Not a chance with all those ball joints.

    The irony that a load bearer's toy can't bear any load.

    Interesting... probably not for me as I'd probably prefer the bigger 'regular' bots - but pretty cool nonetheless!

    The figure looks great. The character's backstory is extremely depressing. I'm not sure I'd want the figure in my collection because of that. Regardless, its a great design.

    ...you don't buy figures because he has a depressing backstory?

    G1 Prime's died like, what? 3 times? His girlfriend thought he was dead for 65 million years. He has the guilt of millions if not billions of deaths on his conscience as every decision he makes results in someone dying, and he actually cares. Do you have no Optimus figures? j/k

    That being said, this little guy is awesome. I hope his little mustache is removable like Minimus's. This makes me wonder what else they'll make at MMC. Ten? Nickle? Aileron? A proper Elita 1? A Victorion that doesn't look like butts?

    I am so getting this - One step closer to the team being complete! Would be be wrong to think with the size of this guy MMC may bundle him with some extra parts for the likes of Kultur or weapons?

    There are the occasional requests for weapons packs here and on their FB page (with varying levels of non-answers in response). If MT Striker Noir did well (perhaps in part by adding in the weapons pack) (and that is a fact of which MMC is aware), then I could definitely see it.

    I kind of thought we'd get The Pet and Nickel as a two-pack to get into the voyager-to-voyager class size most MMC releases fall into

    This is pretty fucking nice, and I can't wait to get it.

    I hope that Ravage does turn into Agent Ravage and has a detachable torso in alt mode.

    G1's "stories" were meant so 8 year old boys could wrap their heads around it and make sense of things.

    The IDW books are 100 times more mature and much darker than anything from G1/the 80's.

    I do hope for a Nickel figure myself though!

    Tell that to the 8 year old boys that got nightmares after he died in the 1986 movie.
    I've read the IDW books but sort of lost focus after the DJD/Megatron fight on Necroworld or whatever.
    At this point, the only IDW things I like are the character designs, although I'll probably play catch-up when TAAO is over.
    Hopefully, MMC will crank out the rest of the great IDW characters like Fulcrum, so we can actually transform them as they never seem to actually transform very much in the comics. :p

    :eek:  Sweet Jehosaphat! It's like he leapt off the page!? :D 

    I honestly didn't expect to see Dominus so soon - hopefully we'll have a pre-order date soon ... :cool: 

    And thanks, LazyAza, for the update on the big fellows of the DJD. I'd rather have them done correctly instead of just "done," and you guys are worth the wait. (Besides, if we get the Pet before Helex, then Nickel, then Tesarus, my wallet will be less inclined to scream bloody murder. :p

    Man, if only Victorion looked like "butts" (cute ones of course)...I might have actually purchased one :p

    I bought her and Megatronia just for the fact that they're a bit of transformers history. MMC does definitely need to revamp them, pun intended. Butts indeed!

    I'm pretty jazzed to have the Pet, though I wish that they'd step up the timetable of the DJD. I'm kind of bummed that they all got greased not long after we actually got to know them at all. It's one of the things that have turned me off of the comics. They went through this long, drawn out process of making great new TF character designs, finally got to their personalities, and then Megatron ended them by sort of Megatronning in their general direction.

    This guy's cute! Price depending (Hopefully he's either cheap, or comes with a bunch of accessories) this could be a pick up, though I may wait for the talked about Ravage repaint.
