    Seriously? Takara is doing human figures in multiple scales now? The smaller scale Spike, Sparkplug, and Carly with Optimus and Spike again with Bumblebee and then a bigger Spike with Hound but no bigger Sparkplug, Carly, or Chip? That seems like a really odd choice. Don't get me wrong - I'd prefer a larger human scale - but I don't like the idea of it being inconsistent. When I made a custom human figure to go with my MPs, I made it MP Spike sized (Spike from MP10) even though I'd have preferred her bigger because I didn't want one human towering over all the others.

    That said, if the latter scale takes off and Dr Wu or somebody does the other human characters in that scale, I'll gladly replace my MP humans with those. Have to be articulated, though - not interested in static figures like Dr Wu's Carly.

    It's tricky that, I feel like in MP alt mode I want them bigger, 1/24 scale, which is what they should technically be to scale with a 6-metre Optimus at 24 cm in robot mode if we go full Sunbow. But then humans always appeared to be much smaller in the cartoon and that is how I prefer them now in robot mode. 1/43-1/45 ish like the MP-44 gang.

    Man I'd really like some good human figures. Not these human blobs that TT gives us.

    Dr. Wu’s Partners (Spike and Sparkplug) have more detail than Takara’s human figures and are a little bit bigger, but lack the articulation that Takara’s figures have. However, they’re hard to find now. Maybe they can still be found on eBay.

    The Wu Partners are impossible to find. I've been trying to hunt them down for about 2 years now.

    That's the crazy thing about this hobby. Some things are so abundant, and everywhere, and sellers can't seem to give them away...

    Then those same toys are gone. Puff!

    LOL. But if you are determined....someday you just might get lucky-and you can stop cursing yourself for not getting them when you had the chance.

    This is a 1/25th figure. I think scales very well with them. I always disliked how tiny TT made the humans so they could fit inside prime. 1/30th would be a good compromise.

    Exactly, that scales perfectly with all the Carnot's. And if OP was 6metres then him too in robot mode.

    I'm loving the new blast effects from MP-44 and MP-18+! And the Gundam blast effects I recently picked up (see Decepticon shelf).

    Could have angled them, so that they are flat to the surface.

    Hey... Where's Seaspray?!

    Let's try this again...

    Downward Scale...

    Hmm... wonder where one of the newer Seaspray offerings would be placed. I keep thinking about XTB Neptune... and I know FansToys is working on an updated Spindrift.

    Those Gundamn blasteffects are awesome. Are they sold seperately?

    Mmm yeah but I don't even think these look all too great. Surely they can do better, or any company could do better?

    Cheers. Not tried transformation yet but don't think it will be too much of an issue.
