    Ok now I'm interested. I take it the skeleton shows the amount of diecast? Really like the head compared to toyworld, and also...DAT TRUCK!!!

    Interested. Although, I'm not so sure of the diecast on the forearms. It might end up being too heavy for the elbow and shoulder joints unless those will be ratcheted which doesn't seem to be the case.

    You could tell me that the one on the right is KO of Dlx Prime and I would have believe you. The fact that it's transform is witchcraft in itself.

    Maddd designer talent. I'm genuinely unable to fathom that this thing transforms. Next to the small hinges on his upper inner calf, I literally can't find ANYTHING that indicates that it does.

    See TransCraft, this is what happens when you procrastinate and do nothing but "reissues" of the same figure over and over.

    This is looking great. Gonna be very tempted to switch out FL for this. One small nitpick is that the shoulders are very small compared to the rest of the body.

    Looks really good.
    Be interesting to know which studio is behind this.
    Pricing will probably be a deciding factor here.

    I've seen some guess that it's possibly BMB behind it. With the numbering and lack of brand name, like with their Sentinel, and how the sculpt work seems to be lifted off the 3A model, like with DS-001 to MP-52 or TE-01's head with MP-44.

    Bought along with their Shockwave, now I need them to make Blitzwing/Starscream and Soundwave since Mechanical Alliance one is finicky as hell to tab together.

    Then again we have Bingo toys who has a shockwave coming and the picture set up here looks identical to them.

    Besides I’d rather hope for a new company as if it’s BMB just don’t bother.

    Very interesting. I'm not sure whether I believe that figure can actually transform, but I am impressed that the designers got/copied the head sculpt right.

    Yeah, I'm still having a hard time believing it myself. Only hinges I can spot are the on the calf, the back of the knee, and the outside of the thigh (all extremely well-hidden).

    I have no clue how the upper body turns into a truck cab. Need to see the transformation to prove the truck cab panels aren't just a removable shell or something. :lol  I reeeeeeally hope this guy's as amazing as he looks.

    @Black Convoy , is it possible to change the thread title to the correct company/product name:
    Magnificent Mecha MM-01 Bumblebee Movie MPM Optimus Prime

    (Sorry to bother you; it's just bugging my OCD, haha.)
