    Haha! But I already took Wheelie and Brains out of their little ties, there's a couple of ideas I want to pose them in.

    Although pictures might help with the process, I kinda understand what your talking about the cutting bit because I've done so on some of my toys too.

    This feels like one of the arts present on the back of those United TF boxes. Looks so good!

    I found a SS Jetfire at the store today and decided that I loved the Jet Mode too much to keep passing it up. I'm personally not a big fan of the face design (The 'beards' and hair parts just really ruin it for me, personally) but everything else just looks fantastic. So I'm excited to crack this package open and transform it! :D

    Enjoy him, he's terrific. He's one of those Studio Series figures that is so insanely accurate and so blows the previous version out of the water that it just stuns.

    Which one is better: Studio Series 32 Optimus Prime (for 57 USD) or Studio Series 44 Prime (for essentially 50 USD if I buy SS 34 Megatron for 50 USD too)?

    I would say go for SS-44. The base figure has the gold fade on the front that’s missing on SS-32, and the extras are really great. A ton of weapons, and the trailer is really fun with how it splits into the weapon ring and jet pack.

    While DOTM Megatron is a little more of a controversial figure, I really like it too.

    The darker shade of yellow on him looks so nice.

    It's kinda weird how everyone keeps finding new Jetfires. I found 5 on black friday at one store that hadn't had him for at least a year prior. Didn't look like new stock since the box was a little roughed up. Reminds me of when Ironhide and Brawl were suddenly everywhere on black friday 2019. I really do wonder if it was a new run because they were gearing up to change the mold for the Xmen crossover or if it was just cases lost in the corner of a distribution center somewhere.

    Anyway I got one too and he blew me away. Probably my favorite SS guy right now.

    I really like SS-44; he comes with a good amount of stuff. Sure it's not perfect - the jetpack is hollow from the front, but he's still fun to play and pose. I think he pulls the Optimus+trailer thing better than ER OP, actually...
    DOTM Megatron is alright, yeah the truck mode has a hollow cab, but I just like him. When I was stuck at home during the early stages of the pandemic he was my favorite desk toy. Be warned though - the rubber chains will affect the chest paint apps, and the same goes for the rubber hand holding his gun.

    It's quite hillarious how freaking small Soundwave is in DOTM compared to G1. He's literally small enough for Megatron/Galvatron to hug in his arms like G1 Bee and Prime, which NGL is also pretty cute :D

    And PLEASE use the unmasked head, Hasbro.

    What’s this about space based movies? As in a Transformers movies where have an adventure in space?

    Not really a fan of the beard either wish someone made an kit to convert his face to his face plate IDW prequel comic instead

    upload_2021-1-7_20-48-18.jpeg



    More of a when than an if at this point. Hasbro has been doing 2 Bumblebees a year in SS so assuming DoTM Bumblebee is a fairly easy retool of the 49 and 74 mold I predict he’ll come in 2022 with maybe the BB 1977 Camaro body or one of his AoE designs.

    Unpopular opinion but I actually like the battle masked head better.

    The more I see ROTF Bee the more I kinda want him. If anything, so I don't have to transform either of them cuz I am always scared of breaking something on him when I do.

    Bumblebee heads are hard to get right because they often miss the little black pupils that don’t make him look creepy. Only the RoTF Deluxe Bumblebee and AoE High Octane Bumblebee figures are the only 2 heads that don’t look weird IMO.

    Speaking of Bumblebee...

    I was at my local Target a couple days ago and found the Buzzworthy WW2 Bee reissue and picked him up since I passed on him the first time. DB513487-0599-4912-889A-1116DB14CDCB.jpeg Let me just say this is a terrible SS figure isn’t accurate at all it has some good molding but I see why people passed on this one. 113BEA7F-CBB0-4BBD-A243-010047850AE4.jpeg C9C1C2C9-18C0-4978-8996-E1D07B714529.jpeg He looks good next to Hot Rod but oddly enough I actually enjoy Hot Rod and I think the mold works for him better.

    The mold isn’t the best but where this figure shines are his accessories. A382235D-17FE-4348-B588-78752D5DB001.jpeg ECC7C583-5C8E-4C7A-9716-2C303ACFE133.jpeg SS49 Bee looks soooo good with the hammer makes me want a TLK remold of SS49.

    I really want DOTM Bee, but I want the weaponized stealth force mode to match the Wreckers.

    That would be pretty cool a good way to differentiate him from the other SS Bumblebees but I also want a clean 2011 Camaro version

    imagine if they remolded SS49 to incorporate the stealth force mode. or even just give him some accessories to make it happen
