    Isn't the pictured TF Prime Prime the Iron Warrior one? If so that one isn't official either.

    I'd still call it as a 3.0 considering all of the improvements. One with the cab as the legs would be a 4.0 in my opinion.

    At this point it would be nice to get an Optimus with some more paint apps. While I like the molds, lack of paint has made the three Optimus’ some of my least favorite studio series. I really thought we would of got more new paint than we did on the leader class.

    The face removal is actually not a feature...you're disassembling the face. Some other website erroneously published that as a feature. In fact, you may have undone a glued piece and now made the face less stable.

    Thanks very much to Bad apple to bring us such pretty great Optimus prime!
    I love Starscream, I love Blackout, I really love to a prime to stand near them in correction scale too! 224CAD7A-6591-4027-AD6C-2AB2432C9272.jpeg 9B11CCB8-6C68-4300-BF8A-4D6359A9103F.jpeg 78DC4060-2EBB-4280-AB65-25B900AAD225.jpeg AF483517-02FD-4AAF-A8DB-822DC6674D9B.jpeg


    According to the data, starscream is 31’, blackout is 29’, Optimus is 28’. However from the movie we see that starscream is much smaller than Megatron while Megatron in ROTF and DOTM is not much bigger than Optimus. In the battle of the forest, starscream and Optimus seem to have the same size!

    This OS blackout is made to scale with mpm 04, however the design made its legs and arms too big compared to the core body, therefore this OS blackout looks good when putting it near the Black Apple Optimus.

    Finally, looking forward to the OS MPM Megatron to be scale with this beautiful Optimus!! It is T08 from WJ, available very soon next month!!:bay  F33929BB-F7B8-481F-96E8-8F1805F9A16F.jpeg

    Does anybody here have the Deluxe Starscream from DOTM or any of its repaints? How does he scale next to fellow Deluxes?

    While I don’t have him anymore, I can tell you he doesn’t scale at all. Much like the trend that began with DOTM he is a very small deluxe.

    Do you remember how he scaled next to smaller Deluxes like movie 1 Brawl, Bonecrusher, and ROTF Rampage? Was he taller than them?


    Damn that's huge! Way too big for me :oops:

    Honestly, what we need is a Masterpiece Prime Prime. Heck, any Prime Masterpiece would be amazing. I personally consider it to be one of the best series in Transformers history and it's a shame it hasn't gotten any attention from HasTak or 3P aside from those non-transforming figures.

    Also, if you ask me, if ROTF Prime is 1.0, then MPM Prime is 1.5 with BA/WJ MPM being 2.0. Sorry, but MPM Prime really is a two steps forward, one step back figure. It did improve on some things, but it actually ignored a ton of the things that the ROTF Prime got right. Fewer pegs, incorrect paint apps, inaccurate chest, inaccurate arms, inaccurate backpack configuration, etc...

    So I've been wrestling with this question since I saw your comment, and rather than actually doing my homework I spent my day trying to determine the proper size for Sentinel.

    Megatron & Sentinel Prime.png

    I apologize for the terrible quality, for some reason the Red Goblin scale chart didn't like being cropped. Basically though, a Studio Series Sentinel Prime needs to be a voyager. Even though the animators cheated in DOTM and made Sentinel larger to scale with Megatron, he actually is much smaller. I cropped in the DOTM Voyager to make a quick approximation.

    Judging by the size of Sentinels vehicle mode, i'd say he should be at least as tall as Megatron.

    I agree. Even though i prefer the movie designs, i'd say that the Prime designs are the best considering how they mixed G1 and movie designs so well. I'll never understand why they don't get more love.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure ILM just shrunk Megatron to 30ft from his original height of 35ft in Movie 1. He's been that size since ROTF, but Hasbro continues to follow the size set in 2007 and probably would until AOE Galvatron gets himself a SS toy. Consistency, I guess.

    Also, because it'd look really weird and awkward seeing a gigantic 2007 Megatron hulking over teeny-tiny ROTF and DOTM Megatrons.

    I wouldn't be surprised if SS Galvatron and TLK Megatron turn out the same size as the Trilogy-trons just like how BB Optimus Prime and Bay Prime are the same height in SS despite the former supposedly needing a toy the size of SS-01 to accurately reflect his size in the movie.
