    Ok weird Tf dream story, i had a dream last night about two upgrade kits that were revealed. One was for Devastator, I dont rememeber exactly details but it had something to do for a more stable crawling pose. Another was a fusion cannon for Movie 1 Megatron, not the SS version but for @erwinsims custom of the 07 leader.
    Also happy belated anniversary to the first movie. I was already a fan thanks to the Cybertron show, but this film further hooked me in as a transformer fan.

    Some of my personal favourites from the 2007 line are voyagers Optimus and Starscream, and leader Megatron. I had a lot of fun with them as a kid, especially as they were some of my first Transformers toys. I might even try and hunt down the first two sometime in the not too distant future. I've been kind of itching to get my hands on them again

    I don't think I had a huge amount of figures from that line though. My movie collecting didn't really kick off till Revenge of the Fallen was released

    Grabbed a couple of the nearest SS figures and made some comparisons. Did my best to get the poses and camera angles exactly the same as the cg counterpart for the cleanest and most accurate comparison possible.

    The differences are apparent, but I feel like overall Hasbro did a fantastic job translating the cgi into transforming figures. All of the details are there, and almost all of the proportions are spot on. Most of the heads are even the correct size (except Drift), despite expecting them all to be too small. I can make more of these too, if anyone wants too see how a specific SS figure stacks up against the cg

    These images make me appreciate the SS figures so much more. Hasbro did a fantastic job.

    Soooo is Overload still not in stock with any US-based online retailers? Are there any overseas sites that have him that can ship to the US?
