    Haven’t seen too much of ‘Shield’ but I did want to be a cop at some point so I took that and most of the dialog I’ve heard from my old radio shows to write the script. Even still, detective interviews are actually calmer and more psychological to either clear a suspect or gain a confession.

    Exhaust just happened to fall victim to some great drama.

    I'm actually waiting to see the comparison shots in person between the regular Shocky and the animated version. I haven't picked up an official MP since I got Tigertracks from Manda (second hand) and I know that the KO THF Megs doesn't count.

    Yep, it's him.

    Two of his bonus faces have dents on the helmet, but as many have said before, this is the Megatron I've always wanted.

    Since the release of Dragnet (Cordon), I've been wanting to make Clampdown into more of a white and black color scheme. So having two MP-12s, I no Johnny 5 disassembled one with some very stubborn pin removing, I've managed to swap out the red from the waist down. The arm pins are like murder and the arms have a weird pin set so couldn't swap the silver for white.

    I decided to leave some red in because of the weird screw and pin assembly so all that's left is deciding on using Clampdown's rocket launcher or Tigertrack's.

    Thanks TC. I wish I could have swapped the rest of the red out but I can live with it. If I were brave enough, I'd take a paint brush to it but for now, I'm good with it.

    Quick question.. Has anyone figured out a rough estimate on Inferno's scale? I'm considering making a diorama surrounding mine, but wasn't sure what scale figures to pickup. (1/35? 1/45?) Any help would be appreciated to avoid buying model figures that are way out of scale

    Couldn't find actual truck measurements, but the ladder on those old Fuso / Morita Super Gyro trucks could extend to 40m if that helps.

    Thank you, I'm not sure how well that'll work though. Inferno's latter can only extend as far as his cab, but I'll give it a try

    From the back of Inferno's box I found online:

    Screen Shot 2018-11-10 at 20.48.44.png

    I'm assuming the length measurement is 9130mm.


    Google search of 'masterpiece inferno inches' comes up with this review:

    Inferno

    Which says Inferno is about 8.25 inches long in truck mode (which is 209.55mm).


    So 9130 divided by 209.55 is 43.56944.

    Which makes Inferno 1/43 scale. Think most the other Autobot cars are between 1:30 and 1:35 scale, which makes Inferno pretty small, scale-wise.

    For what it's worth, I have a 1:32 scale 'road' diorama, and I have yet to come across an Autobot car who is too 'wide' for that road. I think 1/32 to 1/35 is your best scale, but it depends which car you want to 'choose' as your point of reference.

    This thread is useful but huge:

    The Transformers Scale Project

    Apparently Tracks is 1:32 scale, which means that the Raoul figure (assuming he's around 6 foot / 1.8m) should be 5.6 cm / 2.2 inches tall. Like more than twice as big as the one we got :lol

    Thanks Sam. I completely forgot about those measurements on the box.
