    Just kinda curious as to why you didn't purchase Takara Grand Maximus a few years ago buddy? That's an incredible collection of Titans you have though - WOW! Do you have Hasbro or Takara version Metroplex?

    why, just to prove a point that it's much smaller?

    Please, don't make anything bigger! I already need my home re-enforced to cater for Maximus Pro! :D

    I hope so. My tentative plan is for XTB to be my Defensor and these guys to be the individuals.

    I'd like to see that. MMC Defensor should be around the same size as CW Devastator and PotP Predaking so it should work better with Hasbro titans (not correctly scaled with the citybots, of course, but at least noticeably smaller).
    Compared to the other MP scaled combiners...well, we already knew it wouldn't really fit well.

    That photo cost a million dollars to take, with mp-44 taking up 80% of said cost

    I paid 325 for MP-44 when it was first released, courtesy of Amazon JP. Given the other three adds up to 400 plus, 80% seems like an over exaggeration.

    You sure 80% was the factor that gave it away? Not the fact that I said it costed a million dollars? I feel that I was clearly taking the piss, but MP-44 is overpriced

    Someday, I actually believe those 4 will be worth a million dollars, because today's inflation is just a prelude to a certain hyperinflation in the future :)  Doctor Evil will be proud.

    I'm not convinced that's true. I mean, it could be... but MMC's constructicons are about that height (roughly) and they're using Long Haul and Hook to form the torso rather than a single leader-bot. So, if Silverbolt were larger than the rest of the team (as most other iterations do) then I don't see why the Aerialbots couldn't be Seeker size.
    How big Silverbolt would actually need to be, remains a question. Would the limb‐bots need to form the whole limb, including knees and thighs, like Destructor does? If they do, then Silverbolt could be smaller and closer to the size of the rest of the team (though still significantly larger than his teammates)

    Anyway, we'll see.

    Not to prove a point, just curious to see how they compare in total; at least I don't remember seeing a shot like that yet. Tracking says my Hot Spot is in the country, so hopefully just a few more days to see for myself.

    I never got the Hasbro version of Metroplex. I had Utopia but sold it for the Siyan Culture Vladivostok Metroplex. I keep forgetting Grand Maximus exists. Plus, hes like Fort Max Just different colors.
