    I know this isn't necessarily the right place to ask, but my Wanted forum thread isn't getting me any hits.

    Is anyone selling or willing to part with their Takara AA-06 Sidearm Sideswipe? The all silver version with the blue windows? Loose is fine.

    Was there really that many KSI supercars? I only remember 2: A 458 drone and a Huayra (Stinger).

    I remember three following Galvatron into Hong Kong (one of them was Stinger but still). And given KSI was bringing in all those cars for scanning, and thinking about the scene where Galvatron wakes up his army, I remember there were a few cars dotted around there, I assumed they had a a fair few supercars running around (and a bin lorry for some reason). Certainly enough to make the Stunticons at any rate.

    Aw dang. I was assured by the Council of Elders that it was right. I'll have to go back and give them the bad news. Thanks for letting me know!

    Well.. SS Mixmaster is instantly off if vehicle scale is what you want. Our mixy boi's barely longer than Soundwave and he's a very small sports car!

    I disagree with this. A character doesn’t have to be G1-ified to be legitimized. In fact, that’s usually just an excuse for them to squeeze more money out of a mold by targeting the tf “general” fandom. Just look at siege barricade or hot shot. Not saying it’s a terrible thing, but it’s not something I find to be super exciting at all.

    I believe there were a (white) Ferrari 458 Italia, A mclaren 570, the Cadillac cien prototype, Aston Martin DB11, Rolce Royce Drophead coupe and maybe a Jaguar? But there were several as I recall at the moment Galvatron “wakes up”

    Well the Mercedes SLS AMG isn’t that small but a truck should be bigger.. thanks for the help, ill stick to my custom then!

    So, how big is this guy, actually? Do you have SS Grimlock that you could do a comparison with?

    Use a blow dryer or a heat gun to heat up the glued parts. It takes a long time, but if you do it right it should help the glue to become pliable and release its hold. Patience is key though.
    I don't have the Takara one, but I do have a custom painted Hasbro release with 3D printed swords and part swapped windows. PM me if you're interested.

    I remembered most of them just being those Chevy Trax drones, but i forgot about the scanning part of the labs. That place was filled with sportscars. I guess it was a nice opportunity to make the Stunticons.

    Huh, seems there were more than i remembered. Damn, with that many fancy cars i really want figures of all of them :lol

    Reminiscent of the Striker Mode leader class Optimus! Well, it reminds me of it anyways.

    The DK11 weapon on the side of the hood cannot plug in because there's not enough clearance above the fender. So, it's literally just sitting on top of the fender kind of plugged in.

    They look to be in a proper scale if I compare the Deluxe packaging.. 2246EDEA-FAAD-47E0-9C5C-23AD2F696ADB.jpeg D9F373BF-F273-46FA-8263-84EEF7AA81AF.jpeg 0801EE44-E348-44BE-8217-6ADB2AEC1F14.jpeg
