    I have them and they are really good. Add a bit of paint and they'd look better. You just need to clip them on, no need to take anything off or anything. I can give you pics if you need a few.

    Shhhh... :D :D 
    Don’t share my secret that is why I redid my leader and put the shield there on him as well..
    Less kibble in botmode and a better storage of the shield in vehicle mode= win/win in my book!

    Scrap Metal's arm is hollow there from the hand flipping out so I just slotted the panel into Long Haul's hands, which are molded to be open.
    Man that was a fun little legends toy and I miss it! I still want Hasbro to bring back the cyberverse commander size class.

    Dunno about @Optimistic Prime but I got mine off the uncle billy website which I don't think is open anymore. You should check ebay. Always check ebay when you don't know where someone got something.
    Wow maybe it's the angle but you are making that BMB Sideswipe look awesomer than ever!

    I did check eBay already, the first seller that popped up was out of stock, but I’ve found another seller. I also see it on that website you mentioned. Looks like I can still buy it, it has “add to cart” available. Was that website fine in your experience?

    Yeah, how good sideswipe looks definitely depends on where you're looking from and what lighting there is; if you're not looking to closely, or from straight on, and there's enough light so the contrast between the super silver parts and the super dark grey parts isn't blinding, he looks really good!

    That’s BMB Sideswipe right? That looks amazing, didn’t really give that figure might thought at all until just now seeing that photo. How is it so far, you like it?

    Was that leaked listing of a Voyager Class Megatron the same code as the ROTF Megatron?

    Yes it was the same as the Rotf Battle damaged version.

    It was The leader code that was different than the Dotm leader

    Would it be okay to say he transforms better than the Leader? For a figure half the height of a Deluxe I’m impressed by how accurate his backpack looks. I hope Studio Series’s designers can learn a couple tricks from him :D

    Probably, but then again the Leader does end up more accurate over all, so.....

    I think that the SS line is doing pretty well with providing us with great Voyagers and Leader Class figures that have accurate sculpt and lack (specifically) obtrusive backpacks.

    I'd have to say that only SS32 Optimus (and the upcoming leader class set) have backpacks - which is what the older Sentinel toys (VC & LC) suffered greatly from. The other studio series voyagers and leaders barely have backpacks. Because of that I'm hopeful a potential SP in the SS line would be a wonderful improvement over the old Sentinel molds and will be pretty darn satisfying in accurate sculpt and quality design.

    yeah, here's what I said in the Black Mamba's ROTF Sideswipe in the works thread: He just arrived yesterday, and I'd say he's good; like he's definitely an mpm, but he's on a similar level to Bumblebee or Jazz rather than Barricade or UT Lockdown. He's definitely looks a lot better in person, the brighter and darker areas mix together much better, but the bulky chest and small head are still a bit obvious. Having said that tho, mpm bee has a similar big-body issue, so maybe that cements it as a true mpm? Also [the] car mode is beautiful
