    Nice shot! Question (for anyone really), since my interest in SS Brawl has been piqued with the reveal of the MPM, can the chunks of kibble behind the hands be placed on his shoulders like the brawl in the image I quoted? Would it be transformable? Or is there an upgrade kit I’m forgetting about?

    Are you asking if the hand kibble on the ss figure and somehow go on the shoulders like the ko? If so the answer is no, I'm pretty sure the hands are molded into that part and aren't an insert, but I don't have him with me so I can't check

    Was playing with ROTB Mirage earlier and accidentally put him in the Shockwave pose, which he wears quite well, with that single-hand-covering cannon of his.

    I really like both Mirage and Nightbird from this line. They take just a bit of practice, but their transformations are very engaging without being fiddly—they feel like RID/Car Robots toys; doing interesting car transformations just barely over this side of “complex.”

    "That's the difference between you and I, Prime.

    I'd
    willingly burn half of Cybertron to the ground to save the other half from destruction. But you, you'd watch the entire planet burn just to satisfy your moral righteouness."

    Found some awesome stuff yesterday!

    IMG_2121.jpeg

    First up is ROTF Tankor! This is my first of the legends Brawl mold, and it’s pretty cool! Super unique deco too, it’d be interesting to see a larger Brawl with this color scheme.

    IMG_2133.jpeg
    IMG_2134.jpeg

    And here’s DOTM Cyberverse Shockwave! Very neat to finally have this guy, and it’s a little janky with the soft rubbery ribcage that doesn’t plug in and the weapons attaching to the upper arms, but he’s still fun! I like that the cannon on the extra piece kinda looks like the Driller.
    IMG_2136.jpeg
    IMG_2135.jpeg

    Next is ROTF Thrust! Love the deco on the already very fun Breakaway mold, and I think there’s a bit more range of motion on the head sculpt than there was on Breakaway. Would love to take a crack at this deco if we get an SS Breakaway!
    IMG_2131.jpeg
    IMG_2132.jpeg

    And last but certainly not least is the DOTM Cyberverse Ark! I had this back in the day but sold it off (while hanging onto Roller), a decision I have regretted ever since. Glad to have it back, and I was surprised that it was 100% complete! This thing is awesome, my favorite part might be the Space Bridge pillars, and there are 5 of them aboard the Ark like in the movie! Despite having this thing for several years before, I also didn’t realize that the weapon pods on the front were removable until now!

    I don't know why, but it seems a load of behind the scenes stuff has appeared on youtube for the 5 movies over the last two months. There's some cool stuff in them. For example drift in aoe was meant to be black and orange but the car they wanted for him got sold before they could get it so had to switch to black and blue.

    Literally ordered yesterday morning, shipped late yesterday afternoon and in my hand this morning. 1000004798.jpg 1000004799.jpg Sam and the designers on the Takara team really put a lot of love into this figure.

    That's interesting! Did they also explain why all his toys were dark blue even though his car was black?

    No, but this is all about the movies and their production, I guess that would be a question for hasbro. They did say for Optimus western star version, his door panels and the start of the sleeper cab was pretty much the only parts you could find on a standard western star truck (but he seemed to only be talking body work, the chasis and engine would probably be the proper stuff too). The rest of his bodywork was all custom done.

    Couldn’t help but notice the thread going backwards by quite a few posts. Someone’s definitely deleting posts.
