    I have no idea. I don’t own the figure, only read through its thread so you may want to check there.

    Awesome shots!!

    It's not his "review" that makes me feel meh abt Firage, but the figure itself. It just looks very basic when compared to MPMs, kinda like the BMB Sideswipe did.

    I'll see how I feel abt him once I have him though.
    Based on @PrimeVsPrime review, he's a really solid figure.

    It's the same size, so it is too small for some collections, unfortunately. Hope an OS gets released eventually

    Whether you go with the official release or the KO, he's a great figure. The KO has good plastic and is an overall improvement, but there have been reports about the ankle joints being too tight, this is an easy fix by sanding down that joint and lubing it to make it a bit looser, as long as you handle that joint with care you'll be completely fine

    We're still getting plenty of live action transformers. Hasbro will never have a conference for the public where they say, "Hey, here's all of the transformers that we're releasing this year... and these are the MPM's that we have Takara designing."
    Use the down time to track down what you missed and/or enjoy the collection you have. Post pics here maybe.

    Honestly I would like to get the ko masterpiece stuff but I'm kinda worried they might break easy, but I do have plans using some of the ko upscaled figures for customs

    Well, I bought a Hot Toys Hulkbuster, so I decided I’d either be saying goodbye to my MPM or SS collection. I’ve got every release for both (and for MPM, I’ve also got all the UT movie releases).

    Opinions on which it should be?

    ROTF is my favorite Bay movie (shhh, don’t tell anyone). But I’m holding out hope that they slowly (and eventually) release all the figures for that film in MPM or DLX format.

    I like the quality and size of the MPMs better. I only prefer the diversity of SS.

    i want to but my aoe shelf is empty. it’s just ss grimlock and ss drift. id be fine with the wait of there wasn’t an ss86 wave with no live action

    then stick with mpm. u can always get upscaled ss figures to fill out the collection for now and sell them later on.

    The recent Walmart listings have been sputtering out and honestly with the 3 waves a year rule SS has been following for the past couple of years I wouldn't expect leaks so soon. Officially announced is SS86 which will be the early 2021 wave while Mirage's wave will be the midpoint 2021 wave I think Rotf BB, Jolt, Grindor, and our 2 mystery voyagers will be the late 2021 wave and I don't expect them to show it off until Toy Fair 2021 because if they announce it now then they probably won't have a lot to show off at Toy Fair.
    I'm a little upset about SS86' inclusion in the SS line don't get me wrong the figures look nice and the 86 was a theatrical Transformers release so it definitely belongs here more than Predacons Rising but at the same time it's been clear from the start that SS is for live-action characters while WFC is G1 oriented. The thing that really upsets me about SS86 is the fact that the entire first wave of 2021 is SS86. One thing SS is great at is line diversity so if you only like certain characters from certain live-action movies then at least each wave is likely to have something that you like as opposed to "Oh you don't like the AoE cast? That's too bad here's an entire wave of AoE characters now wait a few months and maybe we'll have what you like." I really really wish that they split the first wave of SS86 in half maybe move Mirage to be an early 2021 release and relocate an 86 Deluxe to be the B-127's case mate? Even in the SS Devastator designer interview, they confirmed that they like to diversify the waves so what happened Hasbro?

    This figure is probably the closest I personally find to just owning a real version of the CGI model.

    I don’t mean to be rude, but I’d be perfectly fine if you didn’t post a list for SS like everyday.
