    Agreed. I'm not a car guy and I rarely notice when the details of the car are wrong, but that TLK deluxe (in both modes) was just fat and stumpy not a good figure. Way too simplistic and if it weren't for the fun accessories it would have been utter garbage.
    He looks awesome, but why does everyone put the door wings up all the time sticking straight back? Unless he was in a particular action pose he usually had them pointing straight down in most shots he was in, and they're clearly on ball joints.
    Very minor spoiler:
    Not that I could see. She may have had it quickly in one shot or something but I don't think she ever had it.
    I didn't even know that guys like Ironhide and Sideswipe had battle masks either but I think you might see it in one or two shots or it was taken out of the movie entirely cause the movies are just random sometimes.

    That Shatter is actually one of the cup lid-topper things that the theater had, they only had two by the time we had gotten there and Shatter was one of them, luckily! I really can’t understand why Hasbro only decided to do two BB figures in one wave instead of the three whole characters in the movie. Oh well, at least Shatter turns into a car. I don’t think they’ll do a car mode Dropkick anytime soon, though.

    I'm very confused over if Sideswipe's door wings can fold down so it looks like the actual model.

    It truly is amazing how good this figure is, how they managed to get a car to unfold into this monstrous shape is a true engineering feat. It really makes me excited to own the Studio Series deluxe once he releases.

    Aw that sucks. I was gonna get him (blue paint does wonders) but now, well, i’m a bit more hesitant.

    Hope you find a replacement soon!

    Does Optimus retain the same appearance of his Cybertron robot form when he gets the G1-y vehicle?

    Are Dropkick and Shatter bigger than VW Bumblebee? Because it just seems weird for a helicopter to be only slightly larger than a VW Beetle. Also, if this is supposed to be the correct scale, is it sort of similar with Drift in AOE in his Helicopter mode?

    Thanks you two! And my legendary prime’s heart already belongs to another. Sorry!
    I’ve seen you ask a LOT of specific questions about the movie and it’s your right to be spoiled as much as you want but my advice would be to leave yourself something to actually be surprised by. At this point I feel like you’re gonna know every little detail going in.
    Thank you!!!
    STAR PLATINUM THE WORLD thanks buddy!
    Thanks friend!!
    Oh man they look so cool together :) 

    Update on MPM6: I tried the transformation again and it went much more smoothly and everything lined up much better. Took about 15mins compared to the hour it took the first time.
