    Starscream will not scale with any of the OSKOs, he’ll scale properly with the officials. I’m sure an OSKO will come out for him too, but for everyone’s sake, I hope the official is amazing and has no issues that need rectified with a KO, beyond different paint apps and a size bump to be with other OSKOs

    Eff me, it said preparing yesterday. Now I have to hop on the delay wagon.:( 
    They better not screw those who preordered and delay us again in two weeks.

    Does anyone have the SS Lockdown as well as the third party version that you can put side by side with a deluxe figure from either DOTM, AOE, or TLK? I'm curious if the third party figure is taller in robot mode while still being close to scale with the regular deluxe cars.

    While i await the MPM figure, the Studio version is still a joy. I've bought every iteration of Bayverse Starscream (07, ROTF, HFTD, DOTM, Legends, etc etc) and greatly enjoy all of them. However, for poseability and expression, this one has to take the cake so far (even over my beloved HFTD Leader). To think I almost passed this one over because he shared transformation engineering with the DOTM Deluxe. It's amazing how different they turned out.

    For such a strange design, I love how much character he can exude - he has a natural conniving sort of vibe. He can pull off arrogant, triumphant, cocky, cowardly.
    Even his bowing pose somehow comes across as sarcastic, which I can't get enough of.

    Agreed, i really like my OSKO SS SS and i think he is better than HFTD leader that i had for years, though i will almost certainly replace him with MPM mold, since MPM seems to capture the shape better.

    He’s a fantastic figure, one of my faves in Studio Series for sure. And I still think he’s #2 movie Starscream figure of all time, right after MPM-10 at #1 (at least, based on pics. I hope it’s true in hand). I just wish the SS had ankle tilts and a little bit more range in the knees. But alas, still fantastic. Eager to give one of those DNA Blackout miniguns to him.
    Great pictures!

    I'm a little worried because last year, I pre-ordered an amiibo figure on Target (but much closer to its release date), and the day of its release, it was delayed two weeks, and then every two weeks from that point it was continuously pushed another 2 weeks, eventually requiring me to "approve" the delay each time otherwise it would auto-cancel. This went from February until May, and then the next delay email came at like 3am and it auto-cancelled the order altogether at 5am because I didn't approve it in time.

    I only ordered from Target due to that very attractive sale, and I'm sure at this point I'll find them in stores before they get shipped. Something people pre-ordered nearly three months ago shouldn't be backordered now.

    Wow! What a fantastic paint job!!

    I think Jolt looks so much more appealing in that gorgeous silver paint. Not that Bayverse needs more silver/gunmetal gray bots but this looks so much better than the blue he was originally portrayed in.

    Well done! :thumb

    Not my paint job (wish I could take credit for it though), a guy on ebay was selling it and I figured I’d lay down the funds cause I’ve always wanted the mold. It really looks phenomenal.

    Definitely and you're right, something that's 3 months old, in stores and for a few others, already shipped shouldn't be delayed 2 days before shipping. I'll give them the 2 week delay because, of course, covid. If it's delayed again, then I'll give them a call.

    I think that Ironhide scales well enough in alt mode with BA Prime, but he's too small in robot move.

    It's the same thing with MPM Bee, Ironhide's too small next to Bee, so I'm really looking forward to BA Ironhide.

    Can someone post a pic with SS DOTM Optimus (with his jetpack and holding his sword) standing in between SS Scrapper and SS Shockwave? Trying to get an idea of the size. Thanks
