    It's awesome how well these 5 go together despite being from 3 different companies. I use exactly the same bots for this group.

    I must say, it makes me slightly sad that DX9 hasn't released that many toon-accurate MP figures - Richtofen and Gabriel are top tier 3P MP figures IMO, with Gabriel possibly being my fave 3rd party figure of all time.

    Couldn't agree MORE!! And @Shannixxx photography really brings out the crisp dynamics of each figure!

    Coincidentally, I took these quite recently and was about to post a very similar thought as yours above!!

    Sure, three of them are X-Transbots... but you'd be forgiven if you thought all five were made by the same organization.

    You'd almost think that these different 3P companies worked together.

    An appreciation of: Unique Toys Peru Kill, aka masterpiece Lockdown, specifically the mass-shifting angle to the figure.
    1 2.jpg
    This was my first 3rd party MP, and at the time I didn’t realize it was actually a KO of the Unique Toys figure. Needless to say, the original design is incredible, and it has earned the ‘black magic’ reputation for Unique Toys for good reason.
    3 2.jpg
    First off, this alt mode is stunning - while not a 100% accurate Lambo, it nails the aesthetic of the character and original car.
    2 2.jpg
    To further appreciate this form, and to really hit that mass-shift home, I’ve scaled him w Fanstoys RoadKing / Motormaster, another favourite who seems to mass shift in the opposite direction: smaller.
    5 2.jpg
    4 2.jpg
    To go from that scale, to this:
    6 2.jpg
    Here is Lockdown with a TT MP RoadRage, a standard sized MP - in alt mode, RoadRage is smaller, but not by a distracting amount.
    7 2.jpg
    In robot mode, however, Roadrage just passes Lockdown’s waist. I still have a hard time believing how these three look side by side.
    8 2.jpg
    When AoE came out, in all its terrible glory, I remember two things about leaving the theater: trying to explain to my now-wife why I dragged her to watch THAT for a midnight screening, and thinking it was a shame I could never own a Lockdown figure that could both be a standard lambo and also somehow still have the presence to scale with a leader Prime figure...

    Conclusion: Unique Toys did what a lot of people thought was impossible, and it should appreciated a lot. I've got my eyes on you, Nero...

    What better way to distract from all the chaos and violence happening out there, then with a little more of the same...
