    At the bare minimum, I hope they’ll show Dropkick and Hightower. I want a better look at those two.

    If possible I’d also cross my fingers for a fully coloured Devastator prototype :D 

    And maybe Dino, who knows.

    I would like a better look at Hightower as well.

    But I'm thinking anything new will be saved till Sdcc but perhaps London mcm at the end of May but hasbro hasn't confirmed they will be in attendance.

    Yeah the ones I'm dying to see are DOTM Optimus and Devy, as I'm hoping to see what they both look like all colored in. I'm especially eager to see prime because I'm not sure whether all the gray on the new stuff during the last event was due to the new additions being prototyped or whether those would be the final colors of the trailer, jetpack and accessories...

    The sculpting is just top notch on that guy, he really looks like the part.
    And yeah Shadow Raider is a really nice companion piece, either as a grunt mercenary or if you just want to gut him for parts.

    The guns from the CW Starscream look very nice on the SS version. Maybe I'll repaint them. IMG_20190415_204856.jpg IMG_20190415_204839.jpg IMG_20190415_204944.jpg IMG_20190415_204928.jpg IMG_20190415_202826.jpg IMG_20190415_202836.jpg IMG_20190415_202843.jpg

    they moved a tab 1mm.
    no idea what benefit that gives though, as I don't have that figure.
    the leg panels are a very easy fix.

    pop the panels off.
    dip them in boiled water.
    squeeze them while they're still hot.
    rinse them off with cold water.
    and pop them back on.

    hot water makes plastic easier to permanently bend without causing stress marks, and once properly squeezed the flaps stay on without a problem.

    Yeah, the doors on MPM Bumblebee do collapse and tilt up in robot mode. They don't lock in or anything, but it's still a lot more accurate than most other recent Bumblebee figures

    Well I still can't tab in the doors on Jazz. There just seems to be a bit gap and apparently it can't be fixed. It doesn't bother me much as I never really display him in vehicle mode.
    Yeah same. I want a better look at the Jetpack, trailer and weapons for Prime. For Devastator, I'd like to actually SEE him. People are buying the constructicons and we don't know what it will create. Will Devy look good or bad? We need to see a proper prototype at least. Not some small model of what they think he'll look like, which we saw last time.

    I got no clue dude, that video was everywhere way back when the '07 movie came out. But you'll love his video about the General Lee as a Decepticon scrapping with Jazz:



    not gonna lie, I'd pay in platinum ingots for a 3P transforming General Lee...

    That's a good animation/stop motion. I'm just going to pretend Jazz ran back for the other half of his body. I can't bare his deaths anymore (even though he kind of survived).

    You know, last year I found a headless TLK Optimus at a thrift/collector store, I wonder if it was one of these maskless ones that someone took the head off of and traded the body in for a quick buck.

    sounds like you're not pushing the roof peg into his behind properly.
    it's a common mistake because it takes some effort, and it can only be seen through the window.
