    Ridiculously awesome photo. Bad guys in badass poses rule! The only thing missing from my collection to recreate your display is an MS Soundwave, although I do have the NA one...

    Unfortunately not. It'll be somewhere in the original MST Optimus Prime thread. Don't think it was on Youtube, but rather a Chinese video site.

    But no, Hasbro won't be using it. Look at all the rabid shit that got thrown their way over Apeface.

    Agreed. I've got my own opinion on these 2 versions of the Constructions, let's just say it's a no contest for me.

    it shouldn't matter here. this thing won't weight enough to ever flex that limb or the other foot.

    Hmmn, Normally (but not always) NA takes the lead for me with Legendes but I just prefer the look of MS. These look more like mini FT Masterpieces, while the NA set has that lanky awkwardness of Hasbro Shelf-Hanger bots. In contrast I'm passing on MS's Menasor in favour of NA's. These two companies are neck and neck for me. I do prefer the brighter colours on NA's Constructicons, especially that nice lovely Purple but not enough to compensate for the look. I suppose I should look into how the combined modes of NA and MS combiners will scale at some point. I'm assuming they'll be pretty close?

    Don't know if there are any scale pics for NA Devy, MS Devy will be maybe a head bigger than MS Menasor.

    With the lights I use, I have notice the nylon looks better compared to all the other shiny harder plastics.
    Lesser reflection in it, it somehow makes the figure more alive, like it comes straight out of the cartoon.
    In that way I say job well done, the purple could have been a little bit better but compared to what is out there, this is a massive step up for both brands.

    This is one of the many reasons why I like nylon plastic and non metallic figures. They look great when there's light shining on them. No big reflections and less shining from the figures. To me it just looks better and works great for taking pictures :thumbs2:

    The nylon plastic earned my respect when I got my ms megs barrel stuck. It was in the gun mode and I pushed the barrel too far. I tried to get it out many times but to no avail. In frustration I pulled the barrel with force and it freed it up. I checked the figure thoroughly and not even the slightest hint of stress or damage.

    Supergirl looks like she has a more oval face than Constructigirl's round face.

    Bonecrusher actually looks decent but Scavenger is off to me. That neon green on NA is hard tool look at still but like their purple a hint more. I'm happy people have good options.

    Not what I was referring to. It was in a Chinese market, but it was a man tossing the toy around, not stomping on it.

    But now that someone has linked to another video on bilibili, I've at least remembered where it came from :)
