    I'm not entirely convinced that toy world has made a better version. Things like the fact that the robot feet are completely visible in vehicle mode kill any type of realism or accuracy that they were trying to pursue. Whereas this has improved feet that look closer to the movie but disappear in the vehicle mode. And people can argue but this has the front of the truck as the back sides of the figure. To that I reply a few truck pieces being visible in robot mode is a lot better than a few robot pieces being visible in truck mode. I personally think that this is better than the toy world.

    [QUOTE="Sephiroth169, post: 17496871...maybe they got Slaves working for them, instead of Factory Mass Production

    Is it me? Did I mis-understand or is that weapons grade, self entitled, narrow minded bullshit of the highest order?

    For anyone who doesn't want to fork over $180 for FL, just wait to see what TransCraft Optimus is like before you get this guy, because I have a feeling he is going to be less than $150.

    FL is factually more accurate, is likely to have a better build and better paint, and seems to have more posability. Yes this figure hides it's feet in truck mode, and yes Toy World could have hidden the feet, but the facts are, FL goes all out in it's bot mode, while this figure remains what it is, a knock off trying to be a masterpiece.

    That is also what i assume.

    And that is the Reason, why i refuse to throw my entire Money at a Company.

    I have already calculated in 80-90$ for their Bumblebee, would be shocked if Bumblebee is over 100.

    I do not see their Prime going beyond 160$ but being an accurate Masterpiece above all others.

    Tactical Commander HAS a little bit thin Legs yes, but now that he gets an accurate Head, he is very accurate overall.

    And Transcraft will be the best.

    I did not mean to Attack People.
    Some Peopl just buy every Prime out there, some will wait, like me, knowing a great Masterpiece for less than 200$ is on the way already.

    I might FL alot but I highly doubt it will be built as well as Weijiang's KO. That thing is a beast and the paint is perfect. Does FL even have chrome?

    I'm literally going to buy the smallest one at this point LOL. I have the Wei Jiang version and it's huge. Awesome figure though.

    I think he understands less english than me. That's why he write those kind of things. Or he is using google translator veeery badly. Unfortunate things.

    It's an MPM OSKO (Movie MasterPiece OverSized KnockOff), bigger than a regular MPM scale. 32cm aprox.

    Quite a lot bigger- Bee Optimus is about 17 feet tall, so he should be just slightly higher than MPM03 at 1:29 scale (17.7cm tall)

    But I really don't care about the 'official' scale for the Knightverse films, because the robot modes will be out of scale with the vehicle modes in almost any physical toy.

    As long as it feels right, I'm not fussed with the Knightverse toys' scale

    yeah I'm one of those people that hate scale debates and just goes off what seems right. Like watching the movie, Blitzwing is twice the size of BB, and prime is a tad shorter than that. Do I give a single shit what that one random scale chart says about my opinion? NOPE.

    I mean, the knightverse designs account for vehicles being mostly empty, which does make sense at times- but it's impossible to do that in a transforming toy
