    Sam, get to the BEELDING!
    Are your hip joints pushed all the way up to the skirtpiece? They don't tab in, so when you're messing around with the figure, they have a chance to shift slightly downwards. Either that or a leg was weirdly mistransformed are my only answers (aside from a possible QC issue that is).

    Thank you! They definitely turn out better when I take a bit of extra time to storyboard the transformation. That way I get an idea of how I want the gif to look. I did that with Megatron, but not Bonecrusher, I think it shows.

    That is so great. Looks so close to the animation in the movie with the cab folding under Megatron and everything. Lovely seeing this.
    Only thing I can think of to improve this wonderful piece is maybe multiplying the truck mode picture just before the transformation (to create a small pause), and a few back and forth of the last two pictures so we see Megatron just standing there with his Cape fluttering in the wind for a few seconds

    Knightverse versus Bayverse
    20190910_152448.jpg
    Who will win?
    Thank you!
    I'd love to do that, the only problem is if the file is too big I can't upload it to the thread and sometimes deleting two or three pictures make it just small enough to upload. So any pictures that have minimal change are the first to get cut unfortunately.
    Oh no!

    Just watched a review for MPM Jazz and I have to say, I wasn’t too interested before, but I sure as hell am now! What an incredible looking piece!

    The larger MPMs all seem to be a little hit and miss in places from what I’ve seen/heard, but HasTak are absolutely knocking it out of the park with the cars so far! The only think holding me back is that I’m not sure I can drop €85 odd on a single figure right now

    What is this piece? Was it originally supposed to tab in here? What's the purpose? I'm so confused

    That is a shield piece meant to fill out /cover up the vehicle mode. It connects via two tabs. Sadly it looks like one of yours had too snug a fit into its slot.

    It should still be functional since then other tab should hold it steady, but obviously its crummy to have something break so easily. I will say my copy has always had a very snug fit.

    I feel like this sums up my reaction to every movie toy.

    I recently opened SS Dropkick and he's a really good figure! Great structure, interesting transformation and gorgeous alt mode.

    I noticed how SS01/Clunker Bee has a similar shape/proportions to SS Dropkick. I think they look good together!

    Same. I watched PrimevsPrime’s video review of Jazz yesterday. Not only do I really want it, I almost regret purchasing the MPM Megatron. As it is, since MPM Megatron is my last purchase of 2019, it looks like I’ll be waiting until next year to get Jazz. The waits gonna kill me.

    This guy showed up today. Very excited, though I ordered the A version, but I'm pretty sure I got the B version. Just need MPM Megs and DF Bonecrusher to finish my 07 Cons
