    Thank you! I'll probably start inks this week unless thanksgiving stuff gets in the way (gonna be with family all weekend). It won't take that long but coloring might take a while. I also finished the pencils last night. I'll attach at the end of this post!
    I was bummed when I first saw him but it turns out the wide shoulders are movie accurate. Also knowing how the whole devvy head is in the cab makes me feel a lot better about him too. Just over time as I've been able to see the details more through videos and pics I've come to think he looks pretty good and I'm excited for him.
    Don't salivate too much it doesn't transform :(  Does look great though.

    Here's my finished pencils (again with a figure so that it's technically on-topic, and also to show the size). I redrew a bunch of stuff to be better proportioned, filled in a lot of details, changed the design of the halo, and of course added the flames in!

    I can imagine.. if only you didn't give away your old one right :p 
    Of course these can work if you cut them down.. but if you know of other feet, let me know and ill see what I can find.
    I can maybe help you on the feet of a SS Barricade? Plenty of those around the house (4x) let me know what you need!

    The good news is you can do the backpack mod really easily now.

    I flipped the ab cover by removing the pins and swapping them around.

    Also, his sleeper panels are now angled diagonally behind his head.

    Another “huge” reprolabels update with absolutely nothing for movieverse...
    Wow thank you!
    Looks dope! Planning any additional mods?

    The purple stripe means "average" and when we get MPM ROTF Optimus/bumblebee that has better accuracy and tooling, you guys will look back at that post and realize that I told you so.

    I still wouldn’t put SS over some of those mpms. Tbh the only real thing SS optimus has over MPM optimus is the price tag, apart from that mpm literally makes SS optimus look like a joke.

    It is beyond baffling to me they have not touched SS32 / SS44 yet. They would be able to kill two birds with one stone. I know they did a little bit for SS05 but the color scheme is too different to reuse those.

    Other glaring omissions include 07 Ratchet and AOE Drift, and a pack of construction brand labels and decals for the Constructicons would be nice too.

    I like to think they will do one massive contructicon set when it's all released.

    I'm confused. What do you mean you flipped the ab cover?

    It's quite telling that there's little to no apparent support remaining from Reprolabels/Toyhax for a major TF toy line like the Studio Series. Why are they neglecting it???

    I'm glad you like how I did the Power Up. No, I don't have any further mods planned for it. I don't however, know if swapping the ab covers around will have an adverse effect for Jetfire...

    Well, because the DK11 kit requires the jetpack to be flipped 180°, that makes the black plate halves that cover and plug into his red ab covers upside down.

    Another member did the mod, to unpin each half and swap them to the other side so it's once again right side up.

    I wouldn’t put SS over any of the MPMs, period. Even Ironhide with his fiddly arms is still leagues ahead of SS. Studio Series is really good, but not THAT good.

    You were referencing Ironhide, but drew Optimus Prime! INcredible!

    Damn, that looks awesome! Tiny mod but adds a lot :thumb 

    I thought I was the only one...it seems like one of his legs is shorter than the other to me also. I have learnt to ignore it and I love the figure but the leg thing is weird. Glad I'm not the only one. It sucks how you got a terrible copy though:(

    Has the height of the Arcee triplets been mentioned yet?

    I feel like the MPM Ironhide gets way more hate than it deserves. Sure the shoulders suck, but it's still one of the most accurate MPMs. Hell, I'd even say it's the most accurate MPM so far.

    Ah perfect. I wasnt aware of the flip of the backpack because I havent actually seen a review of combination and putting the pieces on. Do those straps still attach under the wings in jet mode?

    Yeah, I noticed that too. What a load of crap.

    Yeah, still wrong. Firstly, MPM Barricade and Bumblebee are basically the definitive versions of the characters, and I'd consider both to be far above average, QC issues notwithstanding. Saying they are worse or even on par with their SS counterparts is laughable. Secondly, we already have a RotF MPM Optimus, and a RotF Bumblebee would consist of basically swapping out the front bumper of the car and that's it. There's no way they'd completely redesign what's already a great figure for a simple change like that.
