    What is expensive? and where are you located.. I have a pair I am planning to let go.



    they scale well in botmode but vehiclemode is to small.

    I'm not worried about him not getting made, I'm just antsy to see him get revealed.

    Dino seems to be a lot of peoples Studio Series grail. Que would be my grail.

    Yeah, Que is honestly a really cool design. I hope that his Studio Series gets a whole arsenal like his original deluxe. If not that, then at least include the boom sticks.

    I can’t imagine we’ll get Mudflap and Skids anytime soon. (Or even at all) :(

    I feel like even aside from the non-discussable controversy around the Twins, people just hate them so much anyway that they’re definitely not Hasbro’s priority. They’re still annoying characters who were shoved in our faces as obnoxious attempts at kid appeal characters. They’re not like how Movie Anakin is getting a wave of love from fans who grew up with the prequels as their Star Wars, they don’t have this now cult fan favorite status.

    Studio Series being Studio Series means that they’re not permanently off the table, though. I’m sure they’ll get their figures, they were still major characters. I wouldn’t mind just a simple reissue of their ice cream mode since that seems to scale relatively well with SS and it’s a great toy. They’re gonna be some tiny Deluxes otherwise.

    Not voting because I don't have much experience with the MPM Line, but I'm eager to see the results!

    Also, I completely forgot MPM-7 existed . . . Which is also the only mpm I own

    Sad beeps

    On the plus side he's now free from the back of my shelf and I get to appreciate how fun he is once more.

    Yeah from neck down they have an interesting design, being mirror images of each-other, it's a shame that was wasted on two of the worst facial designs in the series, right up there with Mohawk, Drift and Daytrader.

    Brought him to work with me so I can oblige you. It’s not oversized (cause I wanted him to be able to still transform) but I think it’s a big improvement in sculpt:

    To be fair, the TLK Bee, Cogman and Drift we got in Studio Series were all straight redecoes of TLK figures. Crosshairs does have a solid TLK figure so I am assuming he'd get the same treatment, or you can just use your existing figure.

    Seeing Dino being made makes me hopeful for a Sideways figure. The original toy wasn't all that great but hopefully they can do him justice again.

    Bonus points if it can be engineered to split in half long ways in car mode.

    Similar to when Cliffjumper came out, the challenge will go out to all the brave souls who are willing to cut their figures in half.

    It makes sense to release a TLK repaint but I would've expected it earlier on in the line. I wonder if they're actually waiting all this time to end up releasing a new mold. I wouldn't mind either a repaint or a new mold.

    A lot of the ones I'm seeing on eBay are around €60 after shipping, which is way over what I'd be willing to pay for a deluxe figure

    I'm based in Ireland actually! If you don't mind my asking, is yours customised? Nothing against your work of course, just that all my collection is stock Hasbro paint, so I wouldn't want them looking out of place :lol 

    Sideswipe and Sunstreaker Who?

    *cries waiting for leader class Fallen* ...

    Yeah their body designs are fine, I never minded that. I just hate their faces, but even worse, their personalities.

    Huh, making his neck not sunk in anymore really does wonders for the silhouette. Makes the figure look much better, nice. Wonder if Takara will rerelease this mold for DOTM or something. Still need to snag one eventually
