    Hi Kouri, thank you for your answer.
    Now that I Look at your Pictures, I See that the Trailer wheels are too little. IT would need new wheels but then the axles should be worked cause they are too near to each other. A Lot of Work that I'm Not able to do!!

    I know it is being a bit picky, but I hate that the autobot symbols will be upside down in auto mode. I wanted this but that may drive me crazy. He looks good but where would be the best place for an insigna?

    Finally came thanks to Terry. Very impressed with this figure. First thing I did was take the shoulders apart and put longer screws in. Works like a dream now whereas it was very tight before. 20200312_205942.jpg 20200312_205927.jpg 20200312_205856.jpg 20200312_191023.jpg JPEG_20200312_174436.jpg 20200312_173312.jpg 20200312_171855.jpg

    So I was looking at the box that this guy came in and on three sides there are pictures of the figure the front and back obviously and if you are looking at the front the right side inside of the letters there is a picture of the figure. 20200321_110258.jpg what I'm wondering is who is that on the other side of the box in this picture? I have studied the details and none of those details can be found anywhere on this figure and it is noticeably shorter than the picture of Optimus on the other side. Any ideas? 20200321_110152.jpg

    Yours? Can you post these 2 in vehicle mode? Thinking hard about pioneer.

    Yeah, mine. Oof, vehicle mode: transforming Pioneer isn't exactly a cakewalk. I've got a pic of him in vehicle mode somewhere but I assume you're asking for a side by side with Optimus - I don't have a shot of that and I'm not sure I'm up for transforming him right now. He's the first Transformer ever to defeat me - I actually gave up the first time I tried to transform him. I did eventually go back and succeed but yeah, it's not easy. Maybe I'll try it sometime in the next few days.

    Pretty sure they're not too scale in vehicle mode if that's what you're asking. I'd say Bee is somewhere around 1/20 give or take while Optimus is somewhere between 1/24 and 1/26. My Charlie figure in that pic is 1/18 so she's way too big for either of them in vehicle mode (she'd be around 7 1/2 feet or taller if she were in scale to Bee's car mode) but the movie kind of cheats - he's smaller in robot mode than in vehicle mode (you can actually see him shrink when he transforms) while the toy obviously can't do that. In robot mode, though, they're all pretty close to how they scaled in the movie.

    Guilty as charged. That's exactly why I was asking. Thank you for the fast response and no rush on a vehicle pic. I have black mamba LS7 armored wasp and was wondering if I should pass it on and get pioneer. Ls13 is my choice for the Bumblebee Optimus Wars though. I am happy with the articulation paint the transformation is satisfying and easy to do to excellent effect of a near kibbleless bot and vehicle. I don't really care that the truck is not accurate to the movie I just care that it is a decent-looking truck which it is the only things that I would improve upon would be a shapeways rear light cluster and back bumper. That would really set this thing off

    Got some time to play around with the figure some more before I went to work this morning and I figured out robot mode storage for the gun. I'm sure it wasn't intentional but it works either way. 20200329_155637.jpg on the gun fold up the handle and pull the magazine out to this position. 20200329_155653.jpg on either side of the back directly behind the arm there is a channel where the bumper is located 20200329_155743.jpg Slide the magazine into that channel diagonally as shown in the picture. It wedges into place 20200329_155857.jpg it holds very well 20200329_155909.jpg even upside down! 20200329_155811.jpg 20200329_155820.jpg 20200329_155826.jpg

    To add to the post that I made earlier I was recently watching the son of Empire review for transform element mice Warriors. In that review he does a 360 of the box and I took these screenshots. I think transform element might be aoyi mech/ black mamba. What do y'all think? Screenshot_20200404-073510_YouTube.jpg Screenshot_20200404-073508_YouTube.jpg and my two pictures from earlier 20200321_110152.jpg 20200321_110258.jpg same coloring same font same wording...

    The bar code on their boxes literally has a BMB logo on it. So they are black mamba. Which is funny because that means they are making great quality 3p while decreasing the quality more and more on their KO’s.

    If anybody in the US or Canada is selling one of these, I'm interested.

    This guy finally arrives...
    BTW, has anyone tried to connect this guy to MP04 trailer?
    Does the peg on the trailer fits the hole underneath the gun that is pegged between his legs in alt-mode?

    This blows! I ordered Aoyi Mech LS-13 Tactical Commander Optimus Prime from bababobo a while ago thinking it was in stock. It’s still a pre order even though other stock is in. Lame! Good thing I got other stuff incoming to keep me....entertained

    Do you remember the size of the new screws you used? Gotta look into that myself because I'm worried about a future breakage.

    You don't need to replace the screws. Just loosen the ones that are in there to point where they can clear the ridge.

    Babas site says 2 weeks. I wonder if this “new” batch has better screws in that problem area
