    Lockdown as a lambo is the same height as prime who is a truck.

    Dotm megs is a truck and the same size as the jet starscream. Alt mode does not dictate robot size, no matter how much people think it does.

    Come on man. Peru Kill proves we can have a tiny lambo with big Locky. Just because the scaling logic in the movie are wonky as heck doesn’t mean we shouldn’t use it. Because otherwise nothing will matter and Bumblebee would end up taller than Megatron.

    Let's keep on topic, guys. This thread is for movie TOYS. Take the scale discussions elsewhere if they must persist.

    You have Marvel Legends Thanos, right? You could do some pics of your TFs doing an all-out run scene like in the trailers.

    Personally, I’m starting to reference Endgame and Infinity War in my pics, so that’s my new Shtick.

    Oof, I guess I should've waited before buying mine then whoops! How easy was the bumper install? I have no modding experience, so I'm a little bit scared that I ordered this set...

    This kit is how you take a toy that's a solid 7/10 to a 9.5

    Hey, guys, I think you're all taking it too much serious! :lol  I just wanted to say that I would like a bigger bonecrusher. I agree with @ObakaChanTachi : Bonecrusher may be short (and I think he really is), but he also is bulky. The problem is that I have no ways to prove that.

    It’s not that hard, it gives you a tool to help. Just give some hammer taps and once the pin is jostled, just the tool to keep pushing it out. If it gets stuck, use some pliers to slowly but firmly pull it out. Swap bumpers, and then put the pin back in. Only reason it’s hard is there are other pieces in the way

    That's what I'm saying. Specific alt modes doesn't dictate all characters with that alt mode be the same size. Peru kill, like you say, proves this. So does rotf lockdown, or dotm megs compared to optimus. They prove this on screen, and the toys also show this. But to get back on topic and what started all of this, i do think bonecrusher would be nicer eye level with brawl. Still love that walnut head figure regardless.

    Would anyone be able to post a pic of ss dotm megatron with ss32 optimus in both modes? I'm curious how the dotm prime will size up when released.

    Haven't seen these 2 in vehicle mode together though.

    What I'm curious to see is Evasion Mode Prime in bot mode with DOTM Megs. I like the scale of Evasion with the other SS autobots but I think he might be too big for Megs.

    Look what arrived today! I realise I am very late to the party on BB Optimus. I blame Hasbro's UK distribution :confused: 

    Speaking of BB Optimus, he's beautiful, albeit a bit fiddly. Coulda used more pins instead of friction hinges but that seems to be a common flaw with modern figures.

    I did have to tighten up those tabs on his lower legs to stop them dismantling whenever I moved his feet. Now he's perfect! I absolutely love him, he's my second favourite SS figure next to Ironhide.

    SS Dropkick was only £9.99 on Kapow so I couldn't resist adding him to my basket. He's actually really fun and the transformation feels fresh and intuitive. Definitely worth it for that price!

    Awesome! Thanks guys. Prime looks a little small in comparison in bot mode but spot on in alt.

    I can return the favour and do evasion prime with megs when i get home much later. Or maybe tomorrow. Will see how time goes but I'll get them posted if no one beats me to it.

    You guys ever never realized how badly you needed something until you found out it actually existed? Well I'm having that right now with Mr. METAL AS F#$K SAMURAI TANK MAN over here!

    Who is this guy?! Apparently he's a movie figure from the in-universe comics named Bludgeon? I remember seeing DNA Design's figure of Susanoo based on him but I had no idea that he was from the movie line! I need this guy, I need this guy SOO bad. Studio Series, if you can hear me please make a toy for him or heck just rerelease this toy with a new coat of paint or something! Holy scrap this guy's so unbelievably cool!

    Ah yes, the good ol' NEST subline. He was one of the greats among Mindwipe and Lockdown. If you really like the look of him, I'd say search for him. I bet someone has one for sale in the for sale forum....
    And yes, @Crobot91 has one. Just posted yesterday:Transformers G1 Diaclone Chug Masterpiece 3rdParty Botcon Animated Alternators Gobots MarvelLegends
    Make him an offer! Hes worth the retail price that's for sure.

    Oh crap I have no money. :cry 

    Doesn't help that his he looks a bit unsightly with bad swords. Made worse that the Headrobots Blood upgrade kit is even rarer and more expensive to find. :mad: 
    Maybe I'll just cross my fingers and hope Studio Series makes a Voyager for him.... probably not. :(

    Speaking of that 3rd party Bonecrusher... finally transformed it from alt-mode. Turns out he has a bum eye, but I think it adds a twinkle to it.
