    I agree that he's the most accurate MPM to date but he deserves all the hate he gets. It's not just the shoulders that suck. It's the entire torso and arms.

    Jet mode? Dead parts don't fly!

    This is called the "Edgar Suit" Fatality.
    HAHAHA

    Honestly, I don't know if it will work for either of Jetfire's modes yet until I restore him.

    Well, I got Grimlock and Blackout the other day in the mail. Haven't opened them yet. Looking forward to Grimlock. He looks pretty impressive. Jazz and Lockdown will be showing up today....and in a separate package I should be getting Megatron (SS-13), Brawl, Bumblebee, Shadow Raider and Ratchet (SS-16 - SS-18).

    This collection has blown up in a hurry....I'm really looking forward to getting Shockwave next. And I'm probably the only one who wants a Bumblebee appearance Soundwave.

    Honestly I kind of want a RotF satellite Soundwave to come first. He’s a really underrated design imo. He could also come with minions like Ravage and Frenzy.

    I agree.
    In case you missed it. We got new official images of Scavenger, Mixmaster, and Devastator. I gotta say, Mixmaster is looking better and better every time I see him. The arms look like a blast to play with. My only concern is the hinge joint at Devastator's shoulder, I don't know how well that will hold. Oh well, time will tell of course. Hopefully we can get our hands on these guys before January begins :D

    I think I can understand why you like MPM Ironhide less, since Ironhide is really fiddly in transformation and possibility. I also kind of understand why you’d think the SS Optimus is superior, since it does the arms and chest better. But why are Bumblebee and Barricade lower than their SS counterparts?? They’re really good figures without many known qc issues, and way more detailed and accurate versions of their SS counterparts

    Totally agree here. It would be easy money for them they just don’t seem to do anything they’re not personally interested in.
    Agreed. Really the MPMs aren’t nearly as bad as some make them out to be. Especially since these days they’re half the price of the G1MPs.
    I’m just cool like that. Hehe
    Of course he mistransformed them. Not surprised at all. I’m still glad we finally have a video review of these three! I’m most excited for them.

    It's cool to see you tried the mod, it looks great!
    I didn't worry about how the parts would work on Jetfire after flipping them since I have a spare Prime and Jetfire(he got the hands). Maybe they'll tab in if the rubber straps cross over each other?
    Hear hear! Those three and the rest of Devy are the ones I'm stoked for!

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    I've pushed the pin back in place for now and it seems to be holding alright. But also because I'm crazy and don't have a care in the wrold for my wallet, I went ahead and ordered a new copy off of Amazon. If that one turns out to be better I'll just exchange the one I got from ebay.

    :p  Once I realized what had happened that was my first thought as well. That pin was the only thing stopping me from doing the mod, so the fact that it came out so easily was a huge bonus.

    I guess the leg issue is more widespread than I thought. It might not just be a thing on my copy, but all the other looseness and pins falling out does indicate to me that my copy is just wacked.

    I was looking at my copy earlier today and noticed that the gray clips that the hood folds in on in bot mode were warped on my copy.

    20191126_150050.jpg 20191126_150147.jpg

    You can see from the second picture that the clip on the left side is actually closer to his hips than the one on the right. I think that played some sort of optical illusion with my eyes and made me think he was lopsided.

    We'll see what happens with the copy that comes from Amazon but overall I still really enjoy the figure a lot. I just want to be able to experience him with some better tolerances. :D

    Tonton is incredible. He went from speaking chinese, to not speaking at all, to then using text to speech to finally speaking English. Quite the journey.
