    @TigerBlade might be seeing another rush of people wanting that with XTB pushing out all of the redeco's that they doing.

    I'll have a look at the weekend for ppl to have a play around with. As an aside, 3 of those bots have been replaced!

    Thanks @TigerBlade!! That looks fantastic!!

    Between your post above and this video from Xakimus Prime [Titan One], I think I'm sold on XTB Toro.



    Unfortunately, I don't have a 3D Printer. Hopefully, some TFW Entrepreneur decides to sell a few back-pack upgrades for XTB Toro.

    On a related note, after removing that pin... do you remember if you ever transformed your Toro back to car-mode?

    My understanding is removing that pin makes Toro a parts-bot, which is fine by me... as long as the figure still works in alt-mode as well.

    Nevertheless, I can't deny how great Toro looks without that bookcase tied to his back!

    These 3 brands look so good displayed together that I almost feel they had a gentleman's agreement going on ;)

    Agreed... but is Scourge blowing me a kiss in that pic? Because I'm not sure how I feel about that. o_O

    Oh thank Cyberjesus for that. As a proud Brititatitonian myself, I can deal with someone flicking the v's no problem, but a giant beardy robot coming on to me? All kinds of nope.

    Well, maybe when he was Thundercracker, he would have cared about the cultural implications, if he considered you a fleshling worth listening to.

    As Scourge, he mainly thinks about what won't get him punched or shot by Galvatron.

    Honestly, though, really not sure what gesture he's going for there either.

    You should feel flattered. Scourge is known for having discerning taste.

    Well, between that and blowing a kiss, I guess he's got all his bases covered.

    Blimey, can't have been easy finding Ordin these days, grats on that. Also, it's nice to see God Ginrai with the comic headpiece. I don't care of it's not cannon, it looks chunky and awesome god damnit!

    Ordin was just a lucky eBay find. Robot Kingdom also just randomly had SG Godbomber in stock the other day too. Now I gotta hunt for a Purple Power Baser.

    I really like the Marvel head, too. Gives him a distinct look.

    Now you just need to replace Trailbreaker :p 

    Looking good bud! Hunk really make Brawny look dated. Crazy how far we've come over the years.

    Edit - it would be interesting to see all the first versions of mp characters we've had stood next to the latest. Similar to the fashion you'd did with Brawn

    There is a thread for that! comparison thread

    Although I don't mind some nice 3P comparison pics in this thread as well. The Comparison Thread is often all the versions so if you're just looking for first to most recent nicely posed together then this would be a great place to add them.

    Thanks very much. Once my KO MP Hound arrives I'm going to do some before and after group shots to compare my set up now with what I had a few years ago. I think I'm going to ultimately stick with the Badcube Trailbreaker as I really like the alt mode and face. It was easy to swap out Mp 11 with the DS version but I'd be loathed to part with both Brawny and Willis.
