    So finally managed to pickup MPM Ratchet. Simply put, he's awesome. The backpack isn't nearly as egregious on hand as the pictures. Transformation is complex but fun. And he is the epitome of transform it your own way in regards to where his front fenders and roof rack end up. Only gripes are his height (touch too tall) and the visible head in vehicle mode! There's literally the perfect gap for his head to fold into between his arms!

    It's also immensely satisfying to have the full 07 Autobots finally.

    And with the rest of my "MPM" Autobots

    And lastly the full collection of (roughly) MPM Transformers. Seeing the size difference, I've never been more convinced the Autobots would lose.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to post this! I get why SS shipping for voyagers costs a bit more now. Guess i gotta stick to WfC for online orders..

    Amazing. It really is astounding how small these figures are, yet they're so intricately detailed. Such a shame most of it is washed out stock due to paint budget. The fact that you went the extra mile and added all those decals by hand in particular is to be commended.

    I’m getting flashbacks to the horrible packaging we used to have where you needed to tear it apart..... so happy Hasbro changed all of them to boxes.

    Canonically, the reason transformers have cockpits on Cybertron is because the Quintessons used to drive them around like mech suits and now they're just kinda vestigial.

    Ahh sorry about that, you guessed it! All the WFC designs are awesome IMO, they are futuristic (anyone else remember the "cyberglow"?) while still preserving the individuality of each character. Eventually I hope to add Planet X's "MP" version of Cybertronian Starscream to my collection;

    hopefully the pic worked this time
