    The thing that bums me out most about MPM Megatron is that Frenzy wasn’t an accessory. This seemed like his last best chance to see a modern release. The '07 and HA ones aren't terrible but he deserves something better and it's unfortunate to see his window of opportunity closing.

    You can't fully appreciate that skids and his feet unless you look at him in profile

    After Jazz that's an absolute must!! that is if a MPM Bonecrusher ever gets to see the light of day

    I did the same on the right shoulder...and replaced this rubber “chain” with left over necklaces which gave it a much better look. I also took off the hood part of the cloak (just took off the stitching)

    So happy that Studio Series wave 5 is starting to pop up. I've been patiently saving up money to but Megatron, Optimus Prime, and Sideswipe on the spot. It makes me even more excited that they've been spotted only a hundred or so miles away in Georgetown KY.

    Anyone know how I could check with other Transfomers fans to see if they make it to a certain Walmart?

    I'd be for it. But it'd make more sense if they replaced Scorponok with one of Lockdown's Steeljaw hounds since Scorponok was already included with Blackout.

    Gotta admit, I'm jealous of those who have wave 5 leaders, because I want Megatron and Jetfire so bad...

    I guess I need to post some actual posts of TFs soon.

    He said MPM, not studio series. I think throwing in a steeljaw would make it weird af. Im sure theyll get to doing lockdown in MP form sooner or later.

    Ohh. In that case, I'd be for it but I'd rather them replace Ravage with Dispensor since we don't even have an MPM Soundwave. Not yet at least.

    I think soundwave would be the DOTM version and come with laserbeak. Who knows? Time will tell.

    Sorry for her late reply!! But I only have Beetlebee, so I couldn't say.

    Here's some pics @Alirius Prime
    uploaded a little while ago Oiuemj7.jpeg re9K1tr.jpeg Maybe @Alirius Prime can better answer that question for you

    I don’t know if it’s just me but I think Beetlebee’s face looks like a pig

    It’s the way it’s casted. It’s either a case of YMMV or just the fact that it’s not that noticeable in person. Can’t tell yet.

    I hope when they make Modern Camaro Bumblebee, they take some notes on the kibble-arrangement from the DOTM Nitro version. I think that one folded up really nicely. The arms were total crap, but the rest was nice.

    I keep watching this clip over and over again and I'm just praying that we get a Cybertron movie!!
    I feel like the inspiration for the scene came from this

    Also, this SMV is pretty awesome!!

    I probably won't take this much further (I have a DOTM one I went all out on and somehow it's just too much).

    I did end up cutting off the missing foor pieces- hopefully they'll attach easily enough in car mode. I thought I could mod them to come around behind, but it ended up being harder to do than I'd realized so I took them off. Sideswipe to me without whell feet just isn't Sideswipe (one of my favorite movie designs).

    Enjoy.
