    I thought that too, but in person it just seems weird and Bee seems too small, at least camaro bee does. Maybe it's to do with the mpm mould's weird proportions?

    And yep, more parts for my super accurate and complete mess of an Optimus

    I took my trusty 8 way Husky screwdriver grabbed the figure in a way that he was gripped firmly. Took my screwdriver put it in place, the direction they say to pop it in also matters. Then find a hard surface. If you have a cut mat that helps. End of screw driver on mat. Hold firm push down towards screwdriver it will pop. Or take screwdriver place it against yourself. Push figure towards you. Both ways I have done it in the past.

    Indeed, if he had those ingenious hips of the MPM, he'd be a 12/10 for sure.

    Big agree to this. Super glad that both Megatron and Jazz have all the accessories they should come with. Maybe down the line Takara can reissue the earlier MPMs with improved paint, more accessories, and better QC.

    Cool picture.

    But what is the mysterious "this" in the that he is referring to?

    Alright, so I've stared at these pictures way too long and I should really be getting to bed but because I care way too much about this stuff and scale is always a thing on my mind I made a quick little college to help visualize it better.

    Credits go to @Red Goblin, @Insurgent, and @NotMarluxiaXI for the photos.

    It's a very quick and dirty comparison but I think it shows just how massive Megatron always was compared to Prime. Plus, seeing them both beside one another I really appreciate how much SS Prime resembles the silhouette of the CGI model. Despite my issues with the mold like the fender armpits, he comes together to look really accurate.

    Okay. That's done. Goodnight.

    Ah ha! That got it. Many thanks. The instructions looked like the chest was meant to sit much further forward.

    I ended up using the pin tool they provide and a set of channel lock pliers. Just set the size of the channel locks to what you need to get one side on the end of the pin, and the other on the edge of where the pin comes out. Use firm pressure to get the pin started. Once there is enough out the other side, use needlenose pliers to grab. I found twisting while you pull it out helped. Good luck!
