    Are there ever any Cyber Monday Deals on any online Transformer Retailers?

    Still toying around with my Prime issue..
    (no prime that really is in scale with the Studio Series bots) So I took 6 mm out of the width of the “ultimate” Optimus prime.. that was his main issue in vehicle mode and it is a good start.

    now all I need to solve is the robotmode, his arms (with the fenders hanging off)
    and his feet, the fender that is on his arm needs to move over to the heel.

    And then it will be the paint that needs a makeover and perhaps I will trim down his trailer as well, it is way to wide (more leaderclass width)

    Bombusbee's Long Haul disappoints me. Resembles the old voyager figure too much :(

    I really like him instead, maybe because I have seen the movies only twice and I can't remember the cgi models or altmodes models so good...
    AnywayI would like to see paint and scale with mpms. Maybe I could get him as stand alone character (i think him and mixmaster had a part as single character in ROTF, didn't they?)

    Eh... yeah. This one looks overly fiddly. Meanwhile despite the backpack the Studio Series one literally jumped right off the screen, perfect match for the CGI.

    Hasbro basing most of Studio Series directly off ILM-provided models really shows. 3rd parties may be able to do higher parts counts and more paint apps, but they will never beat Hasbro's sculpts. Just look at Peru Kill's head vs. Studio Series Lockdown's.

    The leg mode is cool for sure, but it’s the wrong truck mode and the bot mode has bad proportions just like the old toy. I’m not a fan.
    Yeah definitely agree here. If UT could be hired by Hastak to make MPMs the world would be a better place.

    I love the scale of that long haul as evidenced by the truck mode. A single bot that size would truly terrify me before he even combines

    Develop Custom PS-17 -- ss38 Prime Dmk Supplement

    Share the recent do optimus prime DM Supplement. Includes:
    1) Energy Gun: the original gun is too small and not enough. This design is most loyal to the original movie.
    2) shoulder parts: filling the shoulder loophole.
    3) epaulets parts: a significant increase in the moving range.
    4) small arm parts: according to the official chart, the replacement of the small arm of the small arm is designed to replace the deformation.

    The main thing is the increase in the foot and the energy gun, which can adjust the figure of the human figure and increase the momentum to a certain extent. All the parts are a card replacement. The body is tired of changing the original parts to recover the original parts to recover the original parts.
    The foot increase will be coming soon, stay tuned!”

    More MPMs hopefully, at least four per year. I really DON'T like the idea of there being two a year because most of us will be dead or in our fiftys by the time we get the cool AOE/TLK designs.

    Thought that new SS Bumblebee would be my definitive one but I really hate how they’ve handled the cannon. Much prefer the alt arm piece on the earlier SS and TLK models. Here’s hoping for an improvement on a RotF/ DotM version then.

    This one will do... for now.

    The hollow legs on 08 Bee irk me a little, but it probably won't when I have it in person. Really excited to get my 2007 movie cast together, I just wish Wave 8 was coming out sooner.
