    What i meant was about Bee's toy representation of the movie bee face, up until Human Alliance, Bee's face was more round and friendly; but Battle blades introduced the concept of mean angry bee face, which looked a lot more like Jack Skellington rather than the bee from the movie.

    Yeah, I don’t know why they took bees headsculpt into that direction. But if you thought battle blades was bad, just wait till you see DoTMs.

    Oh! Yeah I can see what you mean. I think it’s because of the smaller eyes and more slanted “brows” of BBBB that make him look more aggressive. HA is almost childish with his rounder face and larger eyes. I didn’t quote it, but “Murderbee” looks like someone’s edgy custom. All he’s missing is gratuitous red paint ‘blood’ and a severed head to hold.

    I think it helps that the wreckers were sorta stylized so it never came across as too human, I think the problem with Que’s face is the attempt to create a mustache looked more like teeth. While a lot of the post DoTM designs are just a metal human face, which often contrasted sharply with the movieverse designs of the bodies.

    I’m fine with my TLK Drift, Crosshairs, Bumblebee and Hound figures. I would definitely like to see the toy designers take another crack at Galvatron. Deluxe Stinger gets a lot of hate on this website, but I think it was a well executed toy and it makes me want another Galvatron figure even more.

    Indeed.... Stinger is one of my favorite SS figures and my first anticipated one back in 2018 when Studio Series started. Especially with that complicated transformation and that lovely look of that Pagani.

    Excellent news. Always glad to add more to my Starscream collection, which just got a boost with my MPM-10 purchase. Interested in these new Starscream and seeker figures. Hope they turn out great

    Bee’s head on Skipjack is comedic gold. Same with smol Prime head on Megatron lol

    Aw, the quote sounds better in the movie though :/

    I know it’s blasphemous, but I like the look of Earthrise Cliffjumper more than the SS one and am tempted to get that as my Knightverse Cliffjumper. The SS version looks strange with his neck region, but that’s cosmetic. What worries me more are the issues of him not tabbing together. Idk, I’m just hesitant to spend $22 on the SS when it sounds decent at best and mediocre at worst.

    Unless people here can convince me that he’s worth it...

    P a i n

    Pics for future reference? Don’t have mine with me, and won’t for quite a few months, and I’m a visual learner. Would be great to actually get mine to tab in, even though the figure holds together fine without it tabbing

    I like SS Stinger too. Transformation is neat (though I don’t do it often) and robot mode looks cool. Just wish the weapon was better.

    Ooo nice. DLX scale is perfect, so I might go for this finally. Don’t have room for the premium scale versions. He’ll go well with DLX Knightverse Bee

    Yeah, SS Cliffy just isn't... fun to handle, because of all the clear plastic. He feels like a grenade haha. The chest halves especially are tight and was so scary to move for transformation the first time. I was actually worried I'd break this guy on my first transformation.
    I love Studio series to bits but Cliffjumper is getting to the bottom of the barrel for me.
    That said I'm still happy I got him to fill out the Autobot SS ranks.

    as shit as tlk was,it's a shame we did not get a sequel with unicron as the villain.

    would have loved to see how a bayverse unicron would look like. imagine a titan class bayverse unicron figure!

    well atleast it could not be worse than the prime verse unicron figure.

    I'd get Earthrise Cliffjumper if I were you. The only good thing about SS Cliffjumper is his sleek and stylish vehicle mode. I know that we're getting a BB Cybertronian Bumblebee figure which is going to be a repaint of Cliffjumper. I'm already disappointed. It'd be fantastic if they made another new mold but they won't do that.

    Earthrise Cliffjumper is great. Only issue is that he may look weird with the rest of your collection.

    yeah it would have been better if the listed tf6 bee was his classic camaro look from the end of the movie. his robot design is different enough compared to the bayverse classic design to warant another classic bee.

    Ooh yes, definitely interested in this! The regular 3A stuff is too big for my liking, but the deluxe 8" stuff is right up my alley

    I hope they do an Optimus from the first three films at this scale. That'd be aces

    I don't interact nearly as much as I'd like with these threads please excuse me for that.
    On the other hand I just finished another custom today! I cannot begin to tell you how much I hated this Megatron when I unboxed him, ugly paint, wonky feet, spaghetti knees, rubber chain etc. But after a immensly fun and teaching experience I might just think that this is my finest work yet!

    Pre-ordered that KO MPM 10. I'll give it a shot. I love MPM10 now, and this looks to fix the few things I didn't like.
