    Never had a Jetfire and prime combo until now. Pretty awesome! Love the big "fuck off" gun too!

    Didn't see something similar anywhere else so I decided to post this. Sorry if somebody noticed it earlier than me.
    Backdrops that comes with ROTF Megatron and Starscream (SS21) complete themselves. But it seems that there is not enough fragment in the center. Maybe missing fragment will come with another figure from forest battle (yeah, I'm talking about you Grindor) or that just a mistake of a designer. PicsArt_03-17-12.46.12.jpg

    Good Luck!

    I hope to find them during my vacation soon. So far, my route shows 3 Targets and 2 Walmarts.

    I started modding Rampage to get more range out of the treads and I'm happy with the results. Left is unmodded right is modded. I just took out some of the tread with a dremel. Luckily because it's all black you can't see what a rush job I did. Next step is to try and install an elbow! It's gonna be hard though!

    Does anyone have any idea how tall SS Long Haul will be in robot mode? I can't decide whether having him, SS Rampage, ROTF Overload, or ROTF Bludgeon in my main display as the third Decepticon voyager.

    Hmmm..... I'm thinking of whether to buy Dragonstorm or ss grimlock... Both look rather cool, but me having the leader AOE grim, I don't know how much more I want to prioritize him over Dragonstorm who I missed while TLK launched.

    My wallet hates this thread. Since following, I've got all the contructicons bought or preordered, with Brawl, Starscream 07, Blackout and Bonecrusher ordered, sheeesh. I hope I can get my hands on Grimlock and Jetfire soon.

    You should take a lesson from my book. I’ve shown strength and refrained from buying anything other than the Studio Series figures that I REALLY want. Instead of collecting 100% of the line, I’m buying 99%

    Everything I listed will be what I get besides a SS Galvatron if done right. Maybe SS Scorn. But the contructicons and Movie 1 decepticons are my fav. MPM Megs Ill get in August. Hopefully get a SS Crosshairs and Hound but thats the most I would go down. I love Siege also so this is a terrible time for me.

    I don’t think I’ll need to buy another Optimus for as long as I live.

    My God everything should be this easy. Grimlock. The SS version is vastly Superior to the AOE leader. Accurate somehow kibble free robot mode, servicible(superior when compared to the AOE versions) T-Rex modeand it comes in the right colors. Dragonstorm on the other hand looks good but has QC that essentially makes him unusable. If you watch his thread it's mostly reports of the heads shattering because the crappy plastic they used for them combined with how tightly they tied down the heads in packaging. Meaning with dragonstorm you'll almost always get the toy shattered OUT OF THE BOX.

    The tough thing is my luck with QC.... I always seem to be alright QC wise, even steelbane ended up having solid joints for me... plus Dragonstorm being almost 10 bucks cheaper is making it a harder choice. Tho the large number of breakages is very concerning...

    Anyone able to get pics of Grimlock and Dragonstorm together? I want to see the 2 side by side

    Sure! I just used a dremel and cut away some of the plastic in the below area of the treads. Now they can move forward much more and look more like whips:

    And here is a hint at my elbow project:

    Yep. That happened to me. Luckily I was able to glue the head back together and it held until I sold him (custom painted). It's a really cool and fun set that's unique, but it definitely has its flaws. I'd like to see them try it again in SS eventually actually. With some upgrades and better quality overall.
