    Hey Guys!

    I need a recommendation on my next MMC purchase.

    I have Assaultus and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them, especially Swindle and Incursus. I love my Saltus, as well as my Stealth Azalea.

    What other MMC figure should I get? Who has satisfying transformation and engineering? I keep hearing about Kultur, is there anyone else I should pay attention to?

    Thanks!

    Having just gotten Kultur, I can't recommend him enough. His transformation is deceptively simple and his articulation, barring a clearance issue with the double cannon turret hitting the shoulder kibble if you try a tight elbow bend, is far beyond what Hasbro does. A key transformation joint actually doubles as a super convincing ab crunch, how many figures can boast having an ab crunch?

    The Feralcons, Spartan, Magna Inventa, Carnifex, and though not MMC the Unrustable Bastards. The Unrustables were created by CZ Hazard, who helped out with early MMC lore, and Cassy Sark who designed the Feralcons, Spartan, Carnifex, Spartan, and other MMC figures.

    Tyrantatron or the Feral cons would look good with him.

    I always have hexatron with the feral cons and Odin from unique toys. He looks great with them as the back drop.

    I wish I had got the feral cons...but 2 of them are impossible to find and I don't want to shell out about 250-300 all at once. Only one I got was the Catilla deco'ed repaint that I use as an autobot. I have Hexatron next to my DJD though...still missing the final one.

    And then there were three.

    Ni and Foxwire are certainly ambitious and I think they suffer a little for it. Ni was shockingly complicated and some parts required far more force than they should have, along with her shoulders being too tight to effectively have a bicep swivel, though she's so wide it doesn't really change anything.

    Foxwire they probably did the best they could and they were wise to focus on Pet more than Dominus Ambus, because the robot mode really looks odd with that gigantic chest bulge and awkward reverse joints. Pet mode is everything I could have wanted or expected, plus I forgot he has a damaged face option I will likely swap on at some point.

    Neither will likely be transformed much so they hold well in their assigned forms and that's all I need of them.

    "Vos" also is pretty cool. There's a bit of red paint excess on the top of the scope but it looks like asymmetrical detail so its all good. I couldn't figure out how to swap off the handle though, doing it as the instructions said felt like I was going to break it.

    I opened Mors today.

    I like Mors.

    I REALLY like Mors.

    NOW KISS

    My one criticism is he either doesn't have ankle tilts or the actual ankle rockers just can't engage. Given his massive bulk, I honestly can understand why this is.

    Attach a tiny ant man figure in a punching pose to the center of the dent.

    EDIT: Found a better picture of my cons on my camera, though it was missing Jaguar. Just imagine Jaguar's there.
