    I have a half-serious question. If you already have Berserker, will you buy Crankcase if Hasbro decides to make him or will you just repurpose Berks as Cranks?

    An earring box?

    Bruh I just store them in a plastic bag :lol 

    I unironically like this if they were Camaro Bees. I need a new Bumblebee.
    They could spite me further by having Bee come with a flip-up battle mask. Sadly I have no TRU in my country but I’m kind of looking forward to see how this will look.
    Agreed. I would’ve gotten their Ratchet if they could fix Ratchet’s paint and QC issues.

    I’m sorry, those are hard to come by. If you’re in the market for replacements I recently found a taobao seller who makes two different scales of them. I picked up a HA scaled Wheelie (2cm) for my collection. I think it was only $3 each but they killed me on intl shipping.

    I ordered a bunch of decals, Cheetor gut guns, Starscream LEDs, and Wheelie here and after combining shipping the whole thing came under $30 and took 3 weeks.
    These are the decals for the DOTM MPM-11 project I told you about. Still waiting on paints, though. Somehow my domestic shipment got lost. o_O

    Damn, that seems like so much for what you got, BUUUT, I guess they gotta make their money somehow, since everything's so cheap.

    Cheetor's gut guns look much better then the ones I ordered, but I'm not all that great at painting, so painting that gun would be a nightmare lol.

    Man, what in the hell is going on with these shipments?!?! I'm really looking forward to seeing your custom Ratchet though, so I hope it shows up soon!!

    Mate, totally keeping Berky. He's an underrated gem.

    Maybe my answer would be different if I hadn't bought TWO of them (one for my TLK shelf as Berserker and one for my Studio Series shelf as Crankcase) but there's really no reason to replace it. He looks great next to Crowbar.

    What would they do, just remove the red X from his chest?

    I would hope they would make a new mold- but we know that doesn’t happen with Hasbro.

    I just don't think a new mold is warranted when Berserker is CG accurate to Crankcase, turns into a Suburban, and was the base mold for Crowbar. Berserker and Crankcase are the exact same model.

    Same. My family would go to my Grandparents house for dinner every Saturday and then after dinner we sit in the living room and watch Iron Chef.

    Which makes Hasbro's decision to just repaint Crowbar and release the figure as Crankcase even more confusing. Literally all they had to do was remove Crowbar's head and put on the one that they originally used for Berserker and, boom, there you go. I know repaints are almost always regarded as "lazy" or whatever, but the SS Crankcase figure is the literal definition of being a lazy repaint.

    The original Berserker figure (not the Crowbar version that was obviously fixed) also isn't that good, mostly because of the arm panels constantly falling off because they weren't pinned in. Berserker was one of the few figures that I actually ended up returning (the last figure I had returned was FOC Prime back in 2012, something I've ironically come to regret) because of how bad the QC issues were.
