    I’ve been fidgeting around with SS Crankcase and I think he’s kind of growing on me. He’s completely and hilariously inaccurate in a line that focuses on movie accuracy, but his paint apps are way better than Crowbar’s. I prefer his color scheme of gunmetal and gold too. The gold paint really makes the detail stand out and makes him look really good. It’s a shame he was called Crankcase because the only reason people don’t like him is because he isn’t accurate to Crankcase. They probably should have sold him as a generic “Dread” or something.

    I think if he came with the guns the Dreads used people would of been a bit more soft on him.

    Picked up Dropkick today. His design and colouring is awesome. Transformation's nice, abiet finicky, and he's got standign issues I feel. Overall, not a bad figure.

    I wonder which way they'll go for Hatchet, I really like the darker colors on Crankcase but already have the other two in their brownish colors

    I really wish they would have sticked to one scale, I would have loved to have them all together.. does these scale well with the MPM Prime?

    You took the words right out of my mouth. I love the Hummer design being able to have both of them be accurate seems to have been a problem for Hasbro / Takara

    Quite a few hours I was finally able to get a lot of my Autobots in vehicle mode to do my favorite version of Dell comparisons now that I have WJ under Commander. I'd say he fits in rather well. Vehicle mode is smaller than blue circus but robot modes are the same size. Here he is with most of my Human Alliance Collection of Autobots some Decepticons and some third-party stuff. You can find the car carrier trailers at Walmart. They come with under sized vehicles but also lots of traffic cones signs and ramps. The truck cab isn't bad just Hollow. currently modifying one so that I can show Mega construx minifigures in the seats. 20191110_113330.jpg 20191110_113317.jpg 20191110_113220.jpg 20191110_113157.jpg 20191110_113113.jpg 20191110_113110.jpg 20191110_113108.jpg 20191110_113105.jpg 20191110_113101.jpg 20191110_113051.jpg 20191110_112536.jpg 20191110_112533.jpg 20191110_112524.jpg 20191110_112407.jpg 20191110_112403.jpg 20191110_112337.jpg 20191110_112328.jpg 20191110_112315.jpg 20191110_112226.jpg 20191110_112043.jpg 20191110_112023.jpg 20191110_112019.jpg 20191110_112016.jpg 20191110_112011.jpg 20191110_111959.jpg

    Well, judging by some pictures on the internet they should scale pretty well with MPM Prime and maybe Ironhide

    Listings for MPM Ratchet and Starscream. Do you guys think they’re going for the complete movie 1 cast? Oh my god I want them all.

    I hate to be that guy but I really don’t think those are listings for MPMs

    Unless those are just deposit prices (in which case it should tell you the total price anyway), they are marked way too low to be MPM figures. Most MPMs go for around ¥7500 to ¥12000. If/when we get Starscream he’d probably be closer to the higher end, while Ratchet somewhere around ¥9/10000

    I’ve no doubt we’ll see MPMs of these two at some point, Ratchet especially. But I don’t think these listings are any kind of confirmation

    EDIT: Upon further inspection, the site also has listings up for an Earthrise Scorponok (which we do know is coming, fair enough), but also the Quintesson judge (random?) and some kind of planet (???). Yeah, I don’t know if reliable is a word I’d use for this source

    by the looks of things and knowing I measured the HA Starscream, it looks MPM Prime and Ironhide are both 1/27 in scale, they would be to big..

    I love the F-22, and I love his robot mode design. I am 100% getting Starscream, and his inevitable OS KO.
    I just hope he doesn’t have any QC or design issues...
    Imagining a sleek F-22 and sleek robot mode without a giant battery pack, and actual wrist rotation, just makes me very hopeful. Hope they don’t screw it up!
