    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

    Actually... Walmart’s been restocking figures like Barricade recently, I’d say check a local Walmart, they might have what your looking for.

    And welcome to the forums btw :)

    Seconded. They've been restocking the wave 5 figures in some Walmarts from what I've seen, so it's worth going there to have a look, since you might be able to find barricade at his standard retail price.

    Also, welcome to the boards! :cool:

    Problem is im not from the US so my best bet in finding older figures locally is to search the abundant hobby shops probably selling them at almost double the price. I got lucky with bee since it was the last one in the whole area. Unless there are viable online stores that ship to SE asian countires at reasonable prices of course.

    Just lucky I guess ;) 
    Love him so far. The arms are weird but once you understand how they move he’s very posable. Paint is excellent. Haven’t even transformed him yet cause I got no instructions.

    I just had these two out side by side the other night and was actually surprised to see that they're not as far off in size as I expected.

    Does the pope shit in the woods?
