    I still wanna get Movie07 CJ, I have the RotF deluxe as my movie Bee, so CJ can be a way to have both versions of the mold without having two versions of the same character. Plus the prototype head would make him a bit more distinguished from Bee.

    I have one if you're interested. It's not listed in my sales thread, but I would be willing to sell him to you.

    Really that's it?? Yes pics would be great to see as this is a very cool looking mod and I would appreciate that! And yep I see you did the backpack mod! It wasn't too much wither right? Just trimming one side down I believe.

    I'll fight you on the last point regarding ROTB Optimus' characterization specifically. I hated this protrayal of Optimus because he's an asshole to humans for no reason other than him being an incompetent leader and him having to deal with the consequences of his own actions. (And he also is far more guilty of the "war crime violent Prime" accusations than Bay Prime ever was and I think the only reason he doesn't get called that is because of the stupid blocky design, but I don't think Bay haters are ready to hear that yet)

    But yeah, ROTB was just extremely boring imo. Maybe this movie is where I gave up on the Bay TF movie style that I feel like everyone else did for TLK but I didn't.

    Bay Prime literally ripped off the Fallen's face and punched his spark through his chest, and this was an enemy that was attempting to flee. ROTB Prime isn't anywhere close to that.

    Yeah, it's exceedingly simple on both the chest and backpack mods, to the point I really wonder why Hasbro didnt put them in the stock figure. The chest mod doesn't effect transformation or alt mode at all, same with the back mod (though the chest mod is pretty risky, as it might become unstable or just not tab in if done wrong.)

    I mean he cut someone in half and threw the top half at another guy to kull. That and Prime literally stabbed Scourge in the face before ripping his head off alongside the spine. I'd say the Scourge part by itself is pretty damn comparable. He could have stopped at just the arms. Not like he could do anything to harm Prime or anyone at that point

    Scourge wasn't really running away from the fight if I recall correctly, whereas the Fallen was.

    By technicality no, but it's not like Prime gave him a chance to try. Fallen wasn't even really running away, he just stumbled and caught himself on a "doorway"

    I'm pretty sure he was running away from Prime, it's kind of the difference in shooting someone in the back or shooting them while facing you.

    I'm just throwing this out there: the only reason Optimus killed scourge like that is because scourge had destroyed hundreds of his comrades, and had murdered his closest friend while prime could only watch. In the interest of the earth and Cybertron, he decided to get a little brutal with it.


    As for bay prime; every single one of his kills were merciless and absolutely brutal, and he had a lot of kills. To be fair, he was facing far more monstrous and sociopathic decepticons than what had appeared in previous transformers renditions, and that was a very old version of prime, who had pretty much seen it all, and was done with the decepticons killing everyone he cared about (which you actually see play out throughout the movies. The only two 07 autobots that survived all 5 were bee and Optimus).

    I don't have a problem with Optimus killing Scourge the way he did. GMP_U2F2ZUdNMDE=.gif It was cool. But what I DON'T like is how hard they nerfed Scourge so this could happen. I bitched about this in depth in the ROTB review thread, but this isn't the Scourge we saw in the museum fight. He took on both Prime and Bumblebee at the same time with little resistance.
    But in the final fight he was made slow and never used his blade until he was getting dismembered. It just happened too quick for it to be earned. Also Primal was robbed.

    The Autobots becoming pristine vehicles turning into grimey robots was always a thing in the films. The difference is, when ILM did the films, the Bots would still have their metallic shine. IMG_5658.jpeg IMG_6974.png IMG_1544.jpeg IMG_1462.jpeg

    I know it's dark in this scene but Optimus lacks any relfectiveness. IMG_0570.jpeg
    Though Optimus started to look decent once Weta had to do MPC's job. IMG_9170.jpeg IMG_9766.jpeg

    Mentally I do find it a little funny that this time around Bee is the more muscular of the two!

    How trustworthy is this rumour though because that's a huge shot in the foot for Hasbro. Some of my favourite toys are cores, and there's so much potential for SS Bayverse cores to make to scale with Devastator.
