    I mean yeah. You can paint it anyway if you do it right. But it’d be hard.

    What about an IDW Whirl like the MMC Turben or are you looking at the MMC IDW molds on a case by case basis to decide if they scale well?

    I've never handled figures from the Reformatted line, but from what I've been told, they are not MP scaled and MMC has even commented that they were never supposed to be representative of MP. If I'm wrong, please let me know.

    No they are definitely MP scaled. There are other masterpiece IDW figures such as figures from Generation Toy and Gcreation.

    Yes, I have the Generation Toy & GCreation figures in the guide already. Do you have any comparison pics with MMC?

    There’s not many to compare to. Aside from the Gcreation’s Sixshot and the MMC one.

    I know. But I do not read the IDW comics, so I don't know if Reformatted is MP. I have been told by many people that they are not because, among other reasons, they are too small.

    Helpful and articulate information, eh :rolleyes: ?
    MMC Reformatted is primarily CHUG scale, any leader looks too small with MPs, some of the smaller dudes can kind of look in scale but they are just NOT consistent and don't really fit with everything else MP.
    The list is correct; GCreation and Generation Toy are absolutely MP - MMC are really just, not.

    I am planning on getting a graduation present. I really want Sunsurge, Maketoys Meteor, Quakewave, Savant, Titans return Soundwave, Artifex, Downbeat, Transistor, Ratchet, titans return Trypticon, Titans return Fortress Maximus, titans return Sixshot, Thrilling 30 Jetfire, and Primal.
    But there is only one problem...
    My dad said the limit is 250$. What will I do! I wanna build my autobot collection but the only decepticons I have are Triggerhappy and Quake. I want to build a decepticon army but I want more autobots in my collection like Sunstreaker to go with Sideswipe.
    Help please!

    Yes, thanks. this is pretty much what I've always been told regarding the Reformatted line.

    um, well if your budget is $250 and you want a lot of figures, I would stay with mainline CHUG figures. 3P/MP figures can add up quick.
