    Badass AND cute, haha. Thanks TraitorJ!

    Had it not been for the addon busts for the citybots, I would have just admired the MM figures from afar, I love Chibi figures but wouldn't collect them for myself. This is a great way to own a select portion of the Master Made offering - and I'm more than grateful for them :)

    You're welcome.

    The busts were also the push I needed to go from admire-from-afar to buy-it-now. I had handled Titan, really liked the construction and detailing, but couldn't quite find a spot for it in my collection. By the time Apollo came out, my collection of Iron Factory figures had grown and he was super tempting, but still wasn't totally sold, then they announced the bust and I was in.

    So far I've only got Apollo and Destruction Scorpion with busts, have the bust for Odin on its way, and I'll be picking Odin up some time after my wife's birthday.

    Want to grab Rex too, at some point, but we shall see.

    And the great thing about Rex is you don't even need the add on bust, he's looks perfect as-is.

    Cheers.

    Just opened mine... I figured it would be the first MM piece that was simply there to fund the Unicron and Primus I so dearly covet. But wow. Wow, man.

    When I genuinely love something in my collection it goes top shelf. And this one is worthy. Gents... I like it better than Diabolous. And that is saying ... everything. A few quirks... stress marks. The hex ports have gotta be refined to be vuncanized rubber. Or some kind of coating to minimize breakage. I can deal with the sharp edges, but in terms of play... the stress marks take the build quality down a few notches. Fine detail is awesome, but take into account those ports on thin walled plastic elements. Those need to be reinforced. Some kind of hardened rubberized coating would do well there considering the transformation panels on the gloves are supporting a substantial amount of weight in the huge cannon and the gloves themselves in wing/cape mode.

    Everything else is appropriately masterly made. Your QC prior to this launch continues the track record of no missing pieces, your tampos are sharp with no bleeding, and the quality of the plastic is the usual lovely matte and heavy. I’m just as please as I was with Apollo (the reigning champ).

    Keep up the good work, and I can’t wait for Devy.

    Edit: er mer gerd they’re making and overlord and pm prime: dead.

    That's the neat thing about sharp tampons. Even when they cut you, they stop the bleeding right away.

    Ditto to all the previous comments about it being great fun, but some scary tight joints and stress marks with the hex ports.
    This is my first MM toy and it has easily become one of my favorites. Highly recommended.

    Annnnd we have arrival!! I have Rex, and he makes this seem like the earlier of the releases, as my Odin has stress marks and countless sprue marks all over the place, and his backpack thing is useless on one side because of flop. Bur damn is he gorgeous!!! I can’t wait for the bust to come in, so I can give him a normal-size head and get to bashing some Decepticons...

    Hey guys doing photography for the Master Made Odin figure and was wondering if there's a trick to getting the smallest cerebros figure to set all the way inside of the gun when it's in "cockpit" mode so that the window closes? I cannot get it for the life of me.. close but it hits his head.

    I think only one reviewer mentioned this as well (Emo) and it doesn't seem to be your fault, it's just the way it is - you can't close the hatch fully with him inside.
