    Ordered Steel Claw yesterday, so just need MPM Megs to complete my lineup! They look great together, but if anything it's Blackout that needs to be larger, and Bonecrusher a bit smaller.

    Haha you guys always sweat when I post those. I sweat when I shoot them! But every MPM figure (except maybe Bumblebee) that I have is pretty solidly stable and so posing them even on a curved surface works well. However, when the wind picks up....
    Looks awesome! And if you have leftovers they can go to TLK Barricade or Nitro Zeus :) 
    Hasbro Pulse shipped me my dropkick like a month ago.

    If/ when they do a Studio Series Sentinel Prime, I think it’ll be a good idea to put a lot of the mass into the shield just like in the film, so we have a big vehicle mode, while the robot mode is in scale

    100% agree. They should also have as many of the panels fold into his "cape" as possible and maybe even use the sword as part of the alt mode too. Usually it looks best when small alt modes become big bot modes, but Sentinel is an exception to this as his vehicle was quite big but he transformed into a bot that was pretty much the same size as Optimus.

    Oh god I can't even imagine how scary that'd be. Just casually posing $300 worth of figures on the 10th floor just to see them get wooshed off into city traffic thanks to the wind. The sheer thought of that just terrifies me...

    And speaking of terrifying:

    It would be neat if his "cape" pieces were actually made of that rubbery plastic, like DotM Megatron's spikes. That way, they could bend and wave the way they do in the movie. Only problem would be that you wouldn't really be able to use them for anything in alternate mode.

    Edit: I was messing around with Ironhide after I took these, and I noticed I forgot to flip the little circular panels out from under his hood. A little detail that goes a long way.

    Natural history museum? That's one of my favorite places on earth. Did you bring any transformers with you?

    Only thing he can't do is hug his friends :(

    Yeah, the museum, it was amazing. I thought about bringing a Transformer but there was no room in my luggage.

    Ah, weapon integration into vehicle mode, eh? Sideswipe did a pretty nice job with that, but Sentinel's sounds like a more daunting task given the complexity of his design. As long as he looks good, sizes good, and doesn't carry an entire truck on his backpack I'm fine however way he turns out.

    There is one problem though...
    images.jpeg-3.jpg 20190816_205121.jpg
    So which one is right!?

    Is Optimus too small? Is Megatron too big? Does Sentinel mass shift whenever he's around the Decepticons? We may sadly never know.

    Sentinel is supposed to be slightly taller than Optimus. But it’s probably just changing sizes so Sentinel didn’t look too small next to Megatron. Animators just do it to fit the scene, that’s it

    Is anyone else super excited for Studio Series Scrapper? Like, literally the only toy representation we got for him was that shitty legends version that had nipples and didn’t even remotely look like him. Now, after 10 years, we finally are getting the Scrapper we deserved way back when!
