    When mine messed up, which if I'm remembering correctly, it was like how you mentioned, I removed the automorph gimmick totally. After doing that, I can't remember if I had to apply any nail polish (what I used at the time) to give the pieces some resistance or if they were already tight enough that they wouldn't flop around.

    That quote was taken from this thread: Transforming Movie Blackout

    Cybercookies is useless. They just post whatever random crap comes into their minds, and it's only occasionally correct (probably from you). Do you want me to post on my insta and give you credit?
    Yeah that looks way more correct to me. Just look at the hood pieces on the chest and you can see that it would have been way too big a car for a human to ride in haha!

    I like messing with people. It's all for fun, I meant nothing by it. :) 
    That is breathtaking.

    The twins scale pretty well there. And wow, surprised by how well Jolt scales. The RotF deluxes really were big!

    I really like this guy. His parts are a little loose and keeps popping out of the pegs, notably his wings, shoulder piece, chest and wing...missile thingies.

    Other then that he looks great and poses well.
    He's my second and presumably last la movie toy...unless they make Shatter with a proper face and BB Ravage. That would rock.

    Already put my preorder in for Dino. Here's the link for anyone interested.

    [Pre-Order] 4th Party Oversized AAT SFT-01 Firage Dino Mirage

    That's not my BA Prime, those are both BMB Primes.
    BMB Prime..both of them..are way too big to scale with the MPM line.

    I don't have any of them, but I do know that they did the shoulder armor, and gave them abadonkadonk for an ass lol.

    Edit:

    If I had to recommend a Prime, it'd be the BA/WJ Prime. He takes a while to transform, but it's really worth it!!
    I'm seriously gonna start looking at your pics for inspiration!!
    Aah, in that case I apologize for jumping to conclusions!!

    The blue link will make your intent clear next time though. ;)

    Thanks for posting the link. Any idea of a final price for the Firage KO?

    And thanks bro you did me a great service sending me that Sam to enhance my photos! Now I have Lennox Epps and Sam I think I’m good for HA figures for now, although it would be fun to have a Mikaela too but she’d only be necessary for a few scenes.

    I wasn't sure where to share this. I want to share these helpful guides to posing your figures. Though the video and the images are about Gunpla, they are still applicable to Transformers or any figures. There is so much to taking toy photography to avoid making them look like the stiff toys that they are to something more real/alive. There is still the aspects of framing, photo editing, composition that helps taking it a step further but all of that technology counts for nothing if the posing is not there; I mean just look at Hasbro's toy stock pics as an example of high quality images but of a stiff toy. Anyway, just wanted to pass this info along. The youtube video also helps put into words and action what posing entails.
