    Because I'm very disappointed with it's articulation and I need to see if I can modify it to a satisfying range of motion ;)

    While I dislike AOE, I had the same feeling when I watched everything after DOTM for the first time. I find myself hoping for another forest battle or chicago-knuckle-spikes-into-shockwave’s-face kind of scene, and everytime I don’t see it I get a little disappointed. On second viewing I found Bumblebee much more enjoyable since I knew not to expect it.

    the third party names are usually hilarious, like, sometimes you'll get something like "LT-02" or "Rendsora" and then you'll get MOTORMAN SLEUTH or BOTTLENECK

    y’know, i wasn’t expecting much, but wow these are not good. Shatter can’t even stand facing forwards without leaning forward or back because the feet are molded so awkwardly.

    At least I have the alternate vehicle modes now I guess.

    They're also illegal. They're not third party. They're knock-offs

    They too big for Christmas ornaments though right? Maybe use them as door stops or pretty garden gnomes?

    i can look past the lackluster articulation for the gimmick but the actual plastic quality for the price is unacceptable

    Check out this epic action pose: 5EFB93D8-885B-4D74-8F4A-6C1D510E91B9.jpeg
    They’re T-posing to assert dominance!

    It helps that I knew they weren’t good to begin with. The static heads were a surprise though.

    The plastic isn’t that bad. Dropkick is a bit flimsier feeling but Shatter is alright.

    I was legit gonna get these 2 because I thought their sculpting would make up for their obvious shittiness, thank you for convincing me to wait for SS instead lol

    you are most welcome, my son

    but legit they are the worst figures in my movie collection. i only bought them so that i could emulate the triple changer look by smashing them together with their SS deluxes to look like they’re changing vehicle modes, but i’m not even sure that they can do that
