    Honestly, I just need A Shockwave masterpiece style.

    My plan is for purple potato but I'm struggling to find a reputable seller or reseller.

    Anybody got links to that?

    Also, is that emperor of destruction Megatron? I'll be honest, I had a better ko, megs. Yet they both suffer from bad. Feet

    I prefer Quakewave to Mp Shockwave because too small and skinny.
    Quakewave has aged but is just as in the 80s comics ,scary and big.
    Purple potato is more modern but has a,different design ,is a good bot but for this year I m more focused on XTB and Fanstoys Scrapper bots.
    And if i ve understood what you mean ,the white bot next Cyclonus is Galvatron in g1 toy colors.
    And do you find the KO of MP Galvatron with some problems?
    No problem at all just curious for reasons. :D

    No, here's the thing, For me I wanted purple potato. I never liked the gun design for a Shockwave. So to me purple potato as a fucking spaceship is way better


    Also I have my decepticon 3p masterpiece lineup

    No I was talking about the Megatron next to crimson Wing.

    I could tell Which third party one. It was simply by the legs and the lack of a decepticon chess plate.

    Hunted down one of the first 3p projects I ever followed to help round out my combiners: Feral Rex! Finally owning them, it is just as cool as reviews made it out to be. The only thing I didn't like was solid molded hands as it felt too chug for me. So 5 sets of articulated hands later and I have myself a set of Predacons that I can proudly display in my MP collection. IMG_7426edit.jpg IMG_7453edit.jpg IMG_7456edit.jpg IMG_7458edit.jpg

    Hey can anybody recommend little human figures? I've been using Mega Construx and they work well, but the non-human proportions are a little bit distracting.

    Anybody got any (cheap) humans they can point me to?

    There haven't been many. There's the Spike, Sparkplug, and Carly that comes with MP-44, the Spike that comes with Bumblebee, the larger Spike that comes with Hound, and there's the old style Spike that comes with MP-10 and a movie Spike and Daniel that came with Ultra Magnus. Other than that, there've been a few static figures - Astoria with DX9's Powerglide, Raoul (I think that was his name) with MP Tracks, and I think Dr Wu did a Dr Arkeville, a Carly, a Sparkplug, and a Spike (everybody does Spike). And I want to say XTB had the human version of Ultra Magnus with their Magnus figure but I can't remember for sure.

    There was a 3P that announced a posable S3 Spike and Carly at 1:30 scale which is what I prefer for MP humans but that was years ago and they seem to have fizzled out. Some guy did a 3D printed custom Charlene from the Marvel comic and then he started on Circuit Breaker but that fizzled out and he never got back to it.

    You might look into model train stuff. O scale would be kinda around where the MP figures are and it looks like there's a scale called "1 gauge" which is 1:32 scale so those would probably work pretty well.

    Thank you for detailed reply I appreciate it :)  !

    Yeah like you, I think I was looking for 1/35 scale humans for the MPs. I have MP1O's Spike and MP Sunstreaker's Chip, but that's it. I tend to feel they are a bit too small though.

    You figure it should not be so hard to find some good scaled humans for MPs, but I've been looking for years. A group of EDC looking people would be great. They could OSKO Diaclones that could work as EDC guys.

    I forgot Chip. He came with both the MP and the 3p Sunstreaker iirc.

    I had a vague notion of 3D printing a bunch of the human characters but I just never had the gumption and only got as far as Charlene.

    That depends on how you want your humans to scale with the transformers. I like the larger Spike that comes with MP Hound. Posable figures at that scale are next to zero. For static figures, G scale train people work, but that's the largest train scale. It's not common since it's meant for indoor and outdoor trains. The fully finished people are limited and really are best suited as background characters. There's much better people available that aren't painted, but I don't want to put a lot of time into background characters.

    G scale train people.
    *Note: Spike is not taller than the man. Camera perspective at play.
