    So after closer inspection, this totally would work.

    If the "no proper shield handle" is bothering you so much with the new Prime, you can simply unscrew a Reflector lense/shield, and secure the handle to Prime's shield. I didn't screw it in, (or glue it) but you can see here it would clearly work.

    Neat.

    EDIT:
    (with it screwed in)

    Just read up on Hasbro and the whole plastic thing. It’s a step in the right direction, but I’m gonna miss those windows that allow you to view the figure.

    Seeing that first glimpse of a figure in the window is spectacular.

    After ten years i decided to buy a new transformers fig in the form of studio series Clunker bee. I am impressed with how much the molding improved within a decade and practically rejuvinated my interest in tf in general. Added in some panel lining and minor paint apps 20190820_235754-1.jpg 20190820_235436-1.jpg

    I really hope Scrapper has his stingy swingy hand thingy.

    I find it funny that Hasbro probably used Nitro Zeus’ picture for KSI Boss as an in-joke since it’s vice versa for TLK.

    But did you see any SS 22 Dropkicks?

    So with the treads like this and viewed from the right angle, the treads form the illusion of the thumb as it sticks out perfectly MVIMG_20190820_234523.jpg

    For some reason I got a picture that the packagings will transition into something like the MPs and MPMs: boxes of carton.

    The details of ss drift is awesome! 5C36CD02-5399-445D-89DA-FBCC6E6D7E83.jpeg

    Without repaint, he is already look better than the repainted old deluxe class version.

    The scale is comfortable when drift is a bit shorter than the bumblebee.

    Got this today, found in Alberta Canada. Honestly he's my new favorite toy, and also the best mpm to date. Sam is a huge waste, out of scale and goofy looking, I might try a repaint but don't really care for him, the Human alliance Lennox works better imo but I might have to try to find some proper scaled humans. Would anyone know the rough scale of mpms? Like 1:24, 1:35, etc?

    That looks amazing! Looks like it came off the big screen! Must've been a hard job though.

    It's like someone read your post about making a Dropkick like this a few days ago, and then they just started to work on it! :lol 

    Transformers figures have changed so much in the past 10 years, it's crazy! They're going to carry on evolving to become something even better. Welcome to the boards, have a great time!:D

    A few minutes ago, I woke up having a sweet dream that we finally got our first look at MPM Ratchet and my wait was at last over. His robot mode appears a little bulky and his Hummer mode was big, perfectly porportioned with a very dark shade of yellow.


    The dream gets even more crazy when I discovered the next MPM afterwards is... DOTM soundwave with a very oversized Laserbeak and ravage (BBB movie design).

    I checked this site to see if Ratchet's real only to be seriously disappointed.

    Normally I'm not one to preorder anything before any major reviews are out (never mind preordering mpms), but I'm making a huge exception for this guy. I have really high hopes for this figure, can't wait until he arrives!

    Just got my first Third-Party figure in the form of DX9 La Hire

    0D191888-8115-4112-BD18-35DF320764C6.jpeg

    First impression is that he’s pretty damn fantastic. Transformation is a bit fiddly first time round, but I imagine that won’t be an issue anymore after a few tries. The robot mode and vehicle mode are perfect to say the least. I’d be damn impressed if HasTak were able to top this guy if and when they eventually get around to a MPM Hot Rod
