    I bought the @capcomkai BA Prime head but since it's designed to be able to transform, it looks small on the OSKO. So I (permanently) tried it out on my MPM-4.

    It looks amazing on him and will no doubt look a lot better on LT-02. I haven't put batteries in it yet.

    It's not perfect. My biggest gripe is that even though the head is on a ball joint, articulation is barely better than a swivel joint. So you have a swivel at the base of the neck and a swivel with a bit of wiggle at the base of the head.

    Just because they are called French Fries, doesn't mean they are French.

    So a whole line of actionmasters for one figure, that was already awesome AND transformable in MP-36?
    Not so unpopular. Most people just already had lockdown at that point and didn't want/need another one. SR looks really cool in both modes.
    We appreciate everything you do for us getting us this info! No worries.
    Looks really good! And yeah my DMS head for BA Prime has the same lack of articulation, although it is definitely serviceable. Good thing is he can look down a lot. The people who are good at modeling, printing and painting really need to team up with the guys who are good at transformation engineering and make a larger head that is also transformable. If the ears folded down and the necks collapsed or something it'd be so cool.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words but feel like I need to make an amendment to my earlier message.

    I'm not going anywhere and ill continue to bring new rumors and info but they will be less frequent and until it's safe for my source to surface they may not be very interesting or very accurate.

    He isn’t CHUG scale. Besides, if Hasbro really does give two shits, they can do people like Minerva, Cancer, Clouder and all sorts of Godmasters and Headmasters.

    These were ordered via ebay uk from a chinese seller about a month ago. I just searched regularly for ‘unique toys base’ and kept an eye on listings until someone had a cheap job lot vs the sellers putting them on for more than a leader class lol.

    Just wanting to show some appreciation for Stockade:

    IMG_20200720_083403.jpg

    When it comes to movieverse toys, most of the off-screen characters toys has some of the more obscure but interesting designs around, and 07 Stockade here is no exception; With the bulky torso, massive fists and long, bulky arms, Stockade here has a quite a robot mode that looks more like a gorilla than your typical humanoid TF robot mode.

    Are the eyes not painted for this head? I could've swore that the eyes for Shmop's Prime's eyes were painted.

    Also, how much was shipping to the US? I'm beginning to really want one!!

    Well... its purple, its somewhat convincing, and it sometimes hisses like a snake, but Sentinel now has a (temporary) shield.

    Snagged a Heli-Dropkick from a Target today (for some reason, 1 and a half years, and yet it's still lingering around), finally bought the bullet so I could have a companion piece to Jet-Shatter (and Blitzwing when he comes out). Not a bad figure at all, posability and design are fine, and while the pieces are a bit loose, they're not popping off (the only piece that popped off was one of the halves of the cowling, and even then it attached back on easily enough). Impressed by how much he compresses into the helicopter mode, looking to be more of an underrated figure minute by minute.

    Meanwhile... 85 days and still no Overload. Going to dunk my Long Haul in red paint and jury-rig him into a waist, brb

    Just finished painting SS Sentinel! It's been a long and difficult process, but I'm happy with how it turned out! There's a few things (like the 07 on the front of the vehicle mode) that I might work on improving over time, but this is a good place for it to be right now. I used a brighter red for robot mode, but due to poor paint quality (won't be using liquitex again) and how well hidden the red areas of both modes are from each other, I kept the darker red for vehicle mode. There's a lot of small details that I had fun painting (particularly on the front of vehicle mode), and I'm just really happy with how Sentinel looks with some of the other bots. Enjoy!

    I also put a link in my sig to my customs page if you want to read/see more about Sentinel or my other customs. While there is some overlap, I try to post different pictures in this thread and the one for my customs to keep things interesting!

    Hey, man its good. Chill out, we already know a lot about next year. As far as SS86 being a potentially exclusive line, i think that wouldn't make too many people happy, especially if it's Walmart.

    Oh, my bad, I apologize. I meant it more as a figure of speech, but I'll keep it in mind.
