    YES! Awesome! I really dislike the arm swap gimmick. Bee looks ridiculous with an arm hanging off his ass and it always ended up being loose over time or sometimes right away.
    I plan on spraying Soundwave mostly silver, so then Laserbeak will end up darker colored.
    One of the reasons I'm super happy with these triplets is that they did exactly what I said they should do, which is copy the head and torso and make everything else unique. It saves them money AND it's the most film accurate way to do it. Many people said they would make them all the same mold, or change the heads even though they were the same in the movie.
    Uh, did you see Bumblebee? They used them for disguise for most of the movie.

    I know lambos are aerodynamically designed but, it will make him go down no less faster hitting terminal velocity if he falls of that ledge.:lol 

    I do not know why people risk it, it is like they want to hit the danger zone but there again it is not my toy.

    Why? It's just referencing the cardboard backdrop.

    Ha! No, I wish! That’s part of Tochigi Prefecture where Kamen Rider and Sentai is filmed.

    It’s just printed out and inside my light box.

    Which other character was in that scene?
    Hasbro always resuses the backdrops for other figures except for bumblebees and the bb optimus prime and blackout i forgot about him

    I really hope that Bombusbee’s Constructicons have the alternate concept art designs that Hasbro doesn’t use. I’d love to see this version of Hightower, and honestly I kind of prefer it to the dinosaur version. It would also help differentiate itself from the Studio Series version and give more people a reason to buy it. 4DF0EF17-2E31-4A5B-9AB1-B9A60D21009E.jpeg
    I also wonder how Overload will look, both SS and Bombusbee. How the hell will they pull of the spider-leg look? Bombusbee may have more freedom since they’re third party, but I have no idea how Hasbro will do it, especially considering Overload is arguably the most important part of Devastator, and has to be stable in order to support the entire body. Even without the spider-legs he’s a fairly spindly and complex robot.

    I just hope they stick to that Robot concept for Leader Class Overload. IT would be disappointing if he looked really different.

    Ice Cream Twins could also use that backdrop, or a potential RotF Sideswipe. But so far it's been rare that only one character uses a particular backdrop.

    I’m about to splurge for my birthday and I’m gonna get High Tower, Dropkick, Drift, Long Haul, and the Dr. Wu TLK Hound kit.

    Are there any other goodies or add-ones for Studio Series you guys can recommend? I don’t think I have the skill to pull off the Ironhide upgrade kit so I think I’ll skip that one.

    I know I've shared this before, but I would like your thoughts on whether or not the cockpit should be more green like the concept art, or leave it as is - which is black with a mist of chrome spray towards its front.

    The Radicon forum doesn't seem to draw enough traffic to have questions answers as often as this section.
