So who do you guys think are gonna be the follow up MPMs after Starscream and Ratchet????
I can see at least one more BB movie MPM sneaking into the lineup. BB movie Prime then Bonecrusher if they stick to movie 1 bots.
Blackout + Scorponok and Bonecrusher maybe? That's assuming they stick with the movie 1 characters.
Is it getting hot in here?
This is really dope!! I started drawing DBZ characters way back when, and from there stated drawing more detailed anime characters, but have since lost the passion to draw, cause I'm too self critical.
But this is really cool!! Please post progress pics!!
I should have mine in about 2 weeks, and I cannot wait to get him!!
Appreciate it man, and of course I will! Hope to see several awesome pictures of your BA Prime bro
Just got my second SS Scrapmetal to join the devastator combined crew. Quick question though as it doesn’t appear to point it out in the manual - what is the correct orientation of Hightower’s socket joint for Scrappy to plug into? Is it meant to be rotated out as far as possible towards the crane tower or left lower down? This would obviously affect how scrap tower plugs in as it alters which side of the socket he would plug into.
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 actually really like the leg mode on this guy. But then again I wasn't a fan of the ss's leg mode so it prolly has more to do with that
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
What do you all think will come next after the Studio Series line ends?
Studio series of the next movies

“Pioneer Studio PS-17 Kit for Transformers Studio Series SS-38 Optimus Prime.
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!”
Ss-49 pics as well
I need it. Now
Yeah looks like they used RotF Voyager as the base, added some details, and modded it to have a foot mode.
