    Does anyone have any comparison pictures of Voyager The Fallen with TLK Leader Megatron?

    Bumblebee movie is less than a week away now

    Wow that cloudy day made for some great lighting, really great shots here!!
    Gotcha! Might as well expand a little more why I like each figure

    Figure of the Year: SS Starscream
    For this one I might have some rose tinted glasses on because Bayverse Starscream is far and away my favorite iteration of my favorite character. I say that with a very very strong emphasis on his media appearances from 2007-9 you know before he became a slobbering waste. This figure gave us one of the most faithful representations of the character that I saw in the ‘07 move, read about in the comics, and played as in the games -- the character that, as a kid, played such an instrumental role in endearing me to the franchise. Now bring on the MPM

    Runner up: MPM Barricade
    The exclusion of frenzy and the panel line mess in altmode are not ideal but this is still such a stunning figure to look at, that alone warrants its status as runner up.

    These pics *chefs kiss*

    can't wait to see someone do a DIY and recreate the hiding from the parents scene once we have all the MPM Autobots
    I feel like the ship has all but sailed for him, the only realistic avenue for release I can still think of is as a part of some sort of exclusive (like Drift with bady Dinobots). Fingers crossed

    My studio series Bumblebee’s windshield has warped at the hinge, becuase the plastic was pushed out of the way to lay flat on the back. Not a huge deal, but it’s suuuper loose now and just falls off when it’s moved out of place.

    They should’ve just pinned it. Dammit.

    Only one I will freak out if we don't get is Sentinel. And maybe Soundwave, although I honestly would prefer to get a good satellite bot over the (admittedly beautiful) car. That alt mode just fit his character much more and was just weird and interesting enough to get my attention. The rotf figure was not detailed or accurate enough for me.
    I was legit looking at amazon last night for miniature dog figures for just this purpose!
    Like I said in the 3A thread: life-size Frenzy or go to hell!
    Cool! I especially liked movie starscream after the reign of starscream comics. That was a great story and even gave us an explanation for the tattoos and confirmation that Barricade was alive and kicking.

    Is it SS01 Bumblebee? If so, heat up that roof piece with a hair dryer and GENTLY squeeze it. That's what I did, and it solved the problem.

    Just saw some pics of upcoming 3p figures and damn I can’t wait. The alien attack hound looks amazing, as does the Megatron they’re making. And bulldog looks sweet. I think I’m most excited for the 3p soundwave. I don’t remember the company but it looks so fricken sweet.

    Good idea. Only ever considered the hot water trick for Marvel Legends and figures like that, not TFs. I’ll give that a try

    Ins´t El Cid from AA kinda of a dud? I wonder if with Hound they learned their lesson.

    We didn't really see him transform in robot mode when he was a satellite right? That'd be interesting to see though. Also I would freak out too if there's no Sentinel. Hoping he scales well.

    You’re testing my memory, but for the tattoos I think you mean the Alliance comic which is connected to Reign of Starscream but they are different stories.
    I got these from a quarter machine back in like 09 or 2010. A little big to scale with MPMs but probably closest I’ll ever come across.

    Also just putting this out there but the ‘mojo’ can kind of easily balance on top of the ‘frankie’ so that last picture almost took a pretty lewd turn

    These three plus KSI Boss and Two Head would make for one nice shelf, please make it happen HasTak

    Ok, fine. Since the list keeps on growing:

    Does Future wear out over time? I applied some to SS Ratchet’s hips a week or two ago, and I just picked it up to pose around, and the coating essentially cracked apart. The joints are almost as loose as they were originally.

    I reapplied the polish just now so we’ll see, but I was under the impression that it was a longer term solution that this?

    here you go, this may make it seem like leaders got small, but the fallen really was taller than a lot of voyagers. Also he doesn't have that much engineering going on, so that probably factored into price. Plus can't lie, leader megs has some pretty darn good sculpting going on. :D

    What are the chances of getting a Studio Series Leader Class The Fallen, do you guys think? Good chance? Not likely? Would any of you be interested in that?

    If they did make one and he had the removable face gimmick of the HFTD repaint, that'd be an insta-buy
