    I was debating if I should order another SS32 online, to pair with my SS Jetfire only - or go for DotM Prime to pair with Jetfire and have all those M3 accessories too.

    I also intend on buying the DNA Design upgrade kit for the PuP combo mode.

    Well he for sure doesn't measure up to your custom Prime, but he's a fun figure. I haven't had a lot of time to mess with him, but so far I've been loving him.

    Edit: I think he's at least better than SS-32

    Sorry for the photo quality being crappy, but I've managed to get these three as an early birthday surprise today.

    I was also thinking of making Hightower the Metallurgist among the Constructicons and while having a cautious personality which can be the reasoning for his tiny arms.

    I'm getting the kit you mentioned along with the D. Wu upgrade kits for his hooks and a bigger rifle and a DOTM style rifle from Shapeways.

    From what I hear the dotm Optimus has much better tolerances compared to ss32. The trailer pack is definitely worth $20, and since you can paint it'll probably be really nice. It might not be worth it though if you don't have any need for the trailer tech. You could save some buck by getting just the base figure if that's your choosing.

    Mockup of a Protoform Warrior. I'd love to army-build these, if it happened.

    DW-M04, also from Dr. Wu. Came in a bunch of solid and translucent colors, built yourself cut from sprues just like a model kit. I have one with my Tax Evasion Optimus, both somewhere in a box since he broke.

    You mean that thing? I've had it in my watched list for a while and can't seem to justify the price of a modern deluxe for one single gun. Maybe someday soon I'll give in and buy one.

    That's the one!

    Dr.Wu DW-M04 Triple Barreled Rifle

    Still available on eBay for $20 or Amazon for $29, but don't know how trustworthy are the sellers...

    My thoughts as well, and the fact you have to build it yourself... After all this time and it's still expensive too.
