    Great comparison; to me this is how carbots should look next to ironhide and ratchet!

    Still need to find a reasonably priced MPM6 they blew up recent

    I'm liking him more now. The robot mode just looks too good to get upset about the kibble.

    Dammit I really want the Devil Saviour Devastator because I think it scales better in studio series, except for Mixmaster! If you think about it, all the studio series constructicon alt mode are way too small, so this really adds up well, but if Mixmaster is too big, that would just make my reason of getting it to scale with SS pointless... This has been bothering my mind for a while

    I did a sloppy side by side to show the differences between Grindor and Blackout more closely.

    The interesting thing I've found about Grindor is that he looks dark and drab to the naked eye but once you get him well lit, these strong blue tones start popping out. He's surprisingly colorful.

    Feels like the fallen is off limits from a collectible perspective. Still waiting for a studio series or prime 1 statue of him

    I am glad those who missed Blackout will be rewarded with a better version of the mold. I think the black/dark bits really gives a nice contrast to the blue. I shouldnt be excited for Grindor but i very much am.

    Reunited with an old friend today, whom I was able to get for a decent price. It's not flawless but it is a fun figure that I regretted selling.

    Just glue the windshield. Plenty of us have done that and there's no reason not to. I can only imagine it was an oversight on the factory's part.
    Yeah dude, once I get Jolt I'm gonna throw away most of my collection cause he's pretty much the most perfect thing ever.

    Haha yes as @Sayan Rahman said I was talking about MPM Screamer (more specifically the KO).

    The stores in my area might as well not even have a Transformers section cuz they never restock, it's just a giant empty space in between all the fully stocked Marvel and DC figures.

    Interesting how this shows that the role was very clearly meant for Megan Fox's Mikaela, even decently far into production

    Great pic! Weird to think that the guy you're taking pictures of is the very same figure I had on my shelf for so long lol
