    Any chance someone could share some side by side shots in bot mode of the MMC, planet X an Haslab together? Curious which to get. As I mix my aesthetics. So any shots that could be shared comparing them would be very much appreciated.

    Ooooo. That scale is CLOSE!
    Looking at them side by side I immediately wonder if the larger IDW style MMC IDW style head from the upcoming G1 style reissue of the MMC figure would fit the neck of this Haslab body.... As that would look badass with the IDW head on that bigger Haslab figure!!!

    Def think I need both tho regardless if I do a custom job or not. As I like the look of that Haslab one. I was hoping the MMC would be larger or same size so I could just buy one... never ends does it?! lol.

    Fans Hobby Double Evil looks great, but I've seen one in person, and it is the size of a human baby. It kinda only scales with Masterpiece, and other Fans Hobby stuff.

    yeah he's humongous and not the most fun or interesting looking to me, so I just wanted to be sure about the scale before I pulled the trigger on carnifex. only heard good things about him tho so that's a good sign

    Deathsaurus can actually two hand his Living Metal Destroying Cannon!! I totally forgot he had butterfly joints!

    Only issue is it breaks up the sculpt from certain angles. Honestly, slight nitpick.

    The Big Guy arrived yesterday and have to say that this has to be some of the best box art of all time! Deathsaurus looks even more amazing in person - can't wait to start clipping away at all the plastic ties and get everything unpacked.

    I wonder if DNA will be doing any kind of Deathsaurus upgrade kit? Would love to see some added die cast feet. If I am spitballing ideas, maybe they could do some replacement chromed parts for a slightly more toy look. Maybe do a chromed out the alt modea head in silver chrome with a matching gold chromed beak like the toy, Matching gold chromed knees like the vintage toy boxart. Or a matching gold chromed head for the cat. Maybe an IDW style head like what MMC did.

    Def tons of possible upgrade ideas they could toss into a set for him. I would def be down for it as I LOVE this figure!!!
