    Captain, we've encountered an unknown vessel, maybe Klingon or Romulan in origin.

    Something is happening, the vessel appears to be...changing.

    So many of you are aware of the countless plotholes of the Long Haul designs being everywhere in the Live-action series. As far as bayverse goes; there was roughly three Long Hauls total (not counting Garagebot) and Studio Series is essentially hasbros only shot at clearing up the discrepancy. And that's where Payload comes in...


    Most will probably disagree; but I really think we should get a leader class toy of Payload with the proper "earth mover" dump truck alt-mode that the twins, Leo and Simmons were next to.

    Canonically, it's been confirmed by hasbro that the real "Long Haul" was Devastators leg the whole time. The other Long Haul we originally thought was the main one from the firestorm battle can easily be re-identified as Payload because on screen, he was way bigger than his constructicon peers and even megatron himself which definitely qualifys for a Leader class toy.
    Screenshot_2019-09-05-15-54-32.png

    And to tie Igor and the third Long Haul from Chicago loophole; I would go under assumptions that it was Devastators recovered limb from Egypt torn off by Megatron so the scalpel drones can fix the body for Igor to reattach and use again for the final frontier.


    I'm probably getting a strong headache from just typing this but bottom line is that we need a Leader class Payload to build the Movie cons numbers.



    Spread the word to Hasbro and Takara, please. I just solved a piece the continuity troubles for them.

    Hey everyone!

    I kinda just created an account here to ask this question, as I have been collecting Transformers since 2001...

    After being damned impressed with the Studio Series line with Devastator's pieces, I picked up Studio Series 44, Leader Optimus Prime. I probably shouldn't have gotten him right after getting the FansProject version, but hey. :) 

    I am wondering - is there any discussion or thought out there about upgrade kits or 3d prints to fill in the gaps on the jet engine? It's bad enough that you can see the mold pin marks on the wings (that seem quite hollow too), but the engines being hollow is REALLY offputting. I see that DNA Designs is doing something for SS32 and 35, but that doesn't really help the jetpack.

    Welcome to the boards! :) 

    I'm unaware of any ss44 upgrade kits as of current, but it is a rather new figure. I'd assume an upgrade kit is bound to surface after some times has passed. The DNA Design kit was made before the release of SS44, so it only intends to improve jetfire as a whole and the jetpower combined mode. Once people have the figure in hand for a while, people will most likely come up with a solution for the hollowness.
    Hope this helps!

    Thanks. :)  I didn't know how long these kinds of things gestated. I've got Jetfire waiting for me at home (having finally made peace with his face), so I'll probably get that upgrade kit too.

    I've yet to figure out how to get my Long Haul vehicle mode to "cleanly" transform. There's just something blocking the arms from sitting flush and the side panels from lining up. It's weird.
