    Probably a dumb question as you'd likely have posted pics with them if you had them, but do you happen to have either or both oversize ROTF Megatrons on hand to compare? I have this set on the way and am trying to decide which Megatron to get. It seems that the TFDream factory at 29cm tall fits best because the BMB is said to be about 33cm which would be same height as armored up prime here based on your 13" tall report here...plus I personally like the TFDream Factory height with Prime by himself better as well.

    The BMB is about 36cm. So it fits in with the carbots and other oversized figures.

    The DF is indeed perfectly scaled with MPM-4.

    I do indeed have the BMB Megatron.

    While they're nearly the same height, you can see how the BMB Megs is clearly a bigger figure...
    It's like my 6 year old standing on a step stool. Sure he's my height, but his head is still like the size of a cantaloupe.

    THANK YOU for this. Definitely don't wanna go with BMB.

    This is what I thought.

    Yup.
    I bought my BMB Megs to compliment my BMB Prime...I feel like those scale pretty well with the regular MPM Bee and Barricade.
    Now if we can get a Jetfire upgrade for the BMB Prime... that would be a sight to behold.

    I was looking at trying that, but there's too many differences between the two molds for it to work. It would probably look goofy anyways because the BMB Optimus is so much bigger.

    Just curious, how does the plastic quality feel? I'm worried it feels like a model kit. Hope that's not the case.

    You know... it's kind of a mixed bag.
    There are definitely some very thin parts for details, but the structural parts are very solid.

    Glad I went with Dream Factory GOD-11 for my Megatron, I prefer the scale.

    Is Black Apple the consensus best compatible MMP Optimus Prime? I'm a complete noob to the MMP OPs. I never felt a need to upgrade my old Voyager one until now.

    Also... wow... it's huge. I have the FWI version and that's already has a lot of presence. This is significantly bigger. I can't wait to get this.

    Yes, I believe other than the official MPM, this kit will fit on the black apple figure...and yes... it's very impressive looking on the shelf...
    I can't stop looking at it!

    Yeah normally I order from ShowZ, but I was so excited for this that I paid the extra $25 or so to buy it domestically from BBTS.
    Their warehouse is like 35 miles from my house, so their cheapest shipping is practically next day.
