    Hm, I see. How about a teaser gif / pic and a link to the full thing uploaded somewhere else? Not worth it, I know. It's just an Idea haha

    If it’s any consolation, it was being able to actually see the transformation in motion that fully convinced me. I did have a good look at a lot of your lovely photos again afterwards though, just to ensure I was thoroughly convinced ;)

    That's Set B alright, seems like Set A was unofficially discontinued and B is the only thing making it out anymore. Regardless it's a great figure and if you have a dremel it's easy to mod the backpack so it folds like the SS and Set A.

    This guy and DF Bonecrusher are both dreams that do wonders for any 07/movie Decepticon shelf! Seriously tempted to fill out my collection with the MPM Megs but part of me still wants to hold out for the DOTM design instead.

    So cool! :) 

    Hopefully they'll do a Ratchet as well.

    Wow, it looks great! With that paint, I'd get it in a heart beat.

    Really? That's awesome! Only thing I didn't like about the figure was the partsforming backpack. Do you have any pics or anything of this? Thanks!

    Sure thing, here's an explanation I'd posted in the Hide Shadow thread, hope it's clear:

    To fix the back back there are two parts to remove, the green and red (see image). The 'green' triangle is just on a mushroom peg so pop that out, and you're done.

    The red square panel is trickier and required the use of a dremel (couldn't push the pin out). Didn't take pictures as I went so made the little graphic to illustrate what I did. Basically it consists of cutting straight through the plastic 'hinge' that connects the panel to the pin.

    And that's it, you can leave the end of the 'hinge' attached to the pin as they won't hinder transformation. You can see the right corner came out cleaner than the left (which still has a bit of the square panel attached). Might sand things down and tidy it up later but for now I'm happy.

    It took 10min of rudimentary hacking and the figure is way better now, backpack folds just like the SS.

    For anyone having trouble with back wheel clearance on SS-46, make sure the back of the figure's thighs are plugged into the roof. This gives the wheels more rolling clearance.

    If you can definitely get him, the legs are a bit weird to manipulate and the lack of side to side head movement is a bit disappointing but overall the figure is great

    We had a rumor that also included Starscream. I don't remember exactly when we heard about it, unfortunately. The rumors seem to come randomly.

    "What would you be without me, Prime?"

    "Time to find out."
