    Prime actually does pull out both blades for just a couple frames in DOTM:

    It’s pretty reasonable to say he replaced the one he threw into Grindor by that point, though.

    Those are the handheld blades, he’s just holding them at an angle.

    I tried to warn you about the humans, Optimus.

    I wish the movie showed something like this, it's ironic that Optimus was proven 'almost' wrong after Sentinel died.

    Also interesting Optimus became knight like in appearance and indifferent to most of the humans.

    This conversation sparked my curiosity so I went back and checked for myself.

    In the whole clip you can see Prime deploy the blade but in this gif I included (thumbnail size for the sake of loading the thread) you can see that his blade on his left arm is not handheld but integrated in his arm. Watch as he retracts it onto his arm and his hand appears.

    To both of your points though, it's cool going back through the movies and finding all these details. Whether they are intentional or not, it's still fun.

    Using the wide angle lens again to try and find some new angles.

    I saw a post a while back abt BBM Thrust, and even Screamer, not really being able to hold their blasters very well, so I thought I'd post this.

    Just cut this tab thing on the inside of the blaster off: 20210823_125909.jpg
    It doesn't affect the connection for the flight stand at all, and it'll allow for the blaster to sit better in their hands. It's still not perfect, but it's much better!!

    Managed to find MPM Ironhide and the upgrade kit going for the same price so officially gave up on the BA release and snagged both for a total of $60!

    Haven’t gotten around to the transformation yet but the articulation really is great (if awkward around the shoulders). The screaming mouth feature is a lot of fun and an ab crunch on a transforming figure never gets old!

    Really enjoying the sculpt and stature of an ironhide that doesn’t look like he could be manhandled by ratchet! My old voyager has at long last been relieved of duty.

    Next step is to get him all painted up

    My attempt at making Grindor taller/ a bit more unique compared to Blackout,
    like keeping the legs extended straight, extending the feet, and making changes to the area behind the head.

    The flatter section behind the head is based on the mid-scene design change right before Optimus climbs on top.

    Is there any way to keep the feet portions extended?

    It wasn't a design change btw, if you watch closely, Starscream shoots a missile, misses Optimus and hits Grindor above the head. So in a way, the flat section is accurate if you're basing it off battle damage and reenacting the scene

    Omg, these arrived in less than 24hrs after being shipped.

    Haven't tried to transform Jolt yet since the tabs on the alt mode back is prone to stressing according to the reviews. 20210824_144225.jpg 20210824_144822.jpg 20210824_145311.jpg

    Ouch! That Megatron head twist looks painful.

    I like how that Optimus fuses elements from G2 and movie Optimus together.
