    Dude, I gotta say you're not endearing anyone to your cause. Granted, KO's are IP theft regardless of how much people enjoy them, but you're hurting your own cause by going about it like this. It's the whole "catch more flies with honey than with vinegar" thing. Heck, you may have more people going contrary to you just out of spite with an approach like this.

    It would have to be winter fresh and simultaneously non offensive.

    THIS BOI IS TOO DAMM THICC
    I HAVE NEVER COME ACROSS A TF WITH THIGHS SO THICK THAT HE CAN'T EVEN LIFT HIS LEGS 90 DEGREES. His arms are also annoying to articulate why? BECAUSE HE'S HECKIN THICC. HIS ARM PYLONS ARE THICC, HIS BACKPACK IS THICC, HECC EVEN HIS WHEELS ARE THICC. so while my friend sd's off the stage because he can't escape sans in smash I'M COMPTIPLATING HOW THICC THIS BOI IS

    So I still have Jazz preordered at BBTS despite having the sample copy. Should I get an official too? I feel like the joints will be tighter and I’ve already scratched my Jazz up by abusing him (cause I like him so much!).

    I mean you could. You always have the option to use 1 for display and the other to fiddle around with. As bad as this sounds, I plan on putting my jazz through abuse as well lol. Though it's your choice, as it's an expensive investment to get a second copy.
    Also an update: my order status just changed from "awaiting fulfillment" to "awaiting shipment". I'll keep you updated in case it changes again

    I look better than you.
    I can transform.

    I am more movie accurate.

    Many Primes died because of you.


    Many Primes died to create me.

    we don't know for sure what impact that kos actually have on the sale of official products. If you're talking about stuff like studio series and mainline figures, the primary returns Hasbro gets from those figures is from the sale of these figures through official retailers, and most people who buy from these are usually younger kids who don't know about the presence of kos and thus doesn't affect the industry that much. In terms of the sale of mp or mpm styled figures, the primary sale and return usually comes at the beginning when the figures are revealed, with a large influx of orders, which later dies off. So most of the time these kos are made a long time after the official product and thus should have little to no effect on sales especially because they have been revealed long after the window wherein there was the largest number of orders for the official figure. I'm no economist, so just take this w/ a grain of salt. But looking down and insulting people based on how they want to live their life is downright hateful. Hasbro isn't going to give you anything in return for what u perceive to be good deeds for their benefit and they largely have other more pressing matters to attend to. So I don't really understand what you're trying to achieve here.

    Okay, did some clean up to eliminate some of the back and forth and somewhat insulting stuff.
    Please keep it civil and respect everyone's opinions and views, even if you don't agree with them.
    Remember though, this is primarily a movie-verse toy APPRECIATION thread, so let's keep it on track.
    Thanks everyone.

    Bringing the topic back to some appreciation, I'll say that I'm really enjoying ss32 a lot with ROTF Megatron:

    You're so weak!

    I quite like this mold. I can understand its criticisms, but I still think it's a really well done figure. At least in my opinion that is. :lol

    What criticism? As far as I know people generally prefer that mold

    But how did you do that? How did you fit the claw through

    It's legit!!! It's shipped! Woohoo! Thanks for the heads up @Sideways77 !

    We are here, we are waiting :cool: 
    So, a lot of people from what I hear still prefer the HTFD Optimus or the AoE EM Optimus because of factors such as scale, accurate smokestacks, screen accuracy in the legs and thighs and not having faux windows. Plus, ss32 does somewhat feel a little more fragile than other SS figures I've handled, but I digress. He's still an incredible figure if you ask me. He's got some nice heroic proportions, a strong sculpt, fun transformation and the ability to combine with jetfire and his jetwing trailer kit.

    As for the blade sticking through him, I lifted up the backpack and raised the panel his head was on and unfolded the faux windows slightly.
