    I need input: I've been meaning to get Hyrbid Optimus for some time now, but now that Dutch is here, is Hybrid Optimus still worth getting? They're both Legends scale right?

    I am biased because Kawamori had a hand in it. It does not look that bad either.

    I was going by what IronMagnus said about Mightron being 10cm

    Depends on your preferences (they're both Legends scale): if toon accuracy is your jam, Dutch hands down; if a detailed mini-MP1 with diecast sounds cool, then Hybrid's your man. Hybrid is a bit fiddly though, so if you plan to do more playing than displaying, Dutch will probably win on that score.

    That's my :2c:  anyway. :)

    Dutch's alt mode may not be perfect, but it's about 1000x better than Hybrid's.

    And it's a fraction of the cost.

    I could sit down with my legs out straight, pull a red shirt up over my head, and cross my arms and it would be a better alt mode than Hybrid Prime.

    How fiddly is he? Do the joints loosen up (with age) much more than other figures?

    And just to confirm, Hybrid Optimus does not have electronics right?

    The alt mode, especially the hidden wipers gimmick, and the cost does indeed come into play.

    lol

    Not a bad idea. Might give that a try.

    Since he is just a little taller than Soundwave this should provide an idea of Hutch’s height compared to other smaller Optimus figures. Should be about exactly the same height as MT’s and SenTiNel’s.

    Left to right: MakeToys Thunder Manus, Robotmasters Convoy, Generation Toy Leader, SenTiNel Optimus

    Does anyone have a picture of MFT Galvatron standing next to the IF Shockwave, dx9 starscream and soundwave. I've seen Megatron next to Galvatron but what of his old troops

    I'm still contemplating whether or not to get WIP Megs or Prime first

    Same I'd buy that display it'd make a great legends sized autobot hang out but I'm gonna use Metroplex for that

    thanks man Galvatron definitely stands out amoungst the crowd, at least now I can do that weird animation thing from Carnage in C minor where Soundwave was 2/3 Galvatron's height and Galvatron got pissed at him and picked him up

    I totally forgot about this, sorry.

    201804170950420606.jpg

    By my measurements, DX9's Megatron is 10.8 cm to the top of the head, 12.6 cm to the top of the back barrel.

    Per the screen grab of the DX9 Optimus review, he appears to be 10.6 cm tall.

    So, face to face, it appears that Megatron will be 2 mm taller than Optimus.

    thank you for listing out what each one is! I see many posts on instagram with multiple primes and they are not labeled. I always wonder which one is which. Where can I find SenTinel Prime?

    Just look up Optimus Prime Pen. He will run you $15-20.
