    For Ironhide I'm not sure, I heard too many bad ts about him! I don't know if you also like 3rd partys and kos, cause there you can find a lot of cool stuff!

    I wish Studio Series had Micromasters in the line just like how Siege has. Having Micromasters would allow us to get Frenzy and the other small characters such as the kitchen bots or Reedman (although he'd be hard to make)

    And as @Shmoptimus Prime said, a pack of blast effects would be awesome. I'm sure the fans would appreciate them being made. Blast effects would obviously make the figures look more interesting and dynamic.

    I think the ideas above would improve the Studio Series line even though it's already fantastic!

    That is amazing! I hope this will become a series so I learn too!

    Maybe you could turn one into a custom? Or do some modifications or have one as a play around figure and another as collector piece.

    I actually really like SS-01 Bumble. Probably only gonna get SS-49 for the battle mask and maybe to make a stealth black repaint. I like Bumble as the '76 and '67 Camaros better anyway. This guy's actually really dynamic if you know how to pose him, plus I just think he has more personality as a beat-up but tough classic car. Makes me think, "Ol' Reliable."

    "Turn around..."

    The blast effect part doesn't actually fit in Bumble's bore btw, but it's PVC so it can squish in. Also, behold SS-01 with some proper paint, I guess.

    I don't mean to be rude, but... of course they fit, that's how 5mm pegs and holes work.

    Omg this so hard, dude. I bought a Suege Targetmaster yesterday just because I needed to try out at least one effect part and they're awesome but... holy fuck, G1 style Targetmasters are so stupid. "Gun" modes are just folded up robots with a tube sticking out and the robot modes can only pose like a stiff-limbed baby flailing around. You know I'm a G1 fan too, but Jesus Grandma, these things suck.

    I really like Beaterbee as well.. I am a classic car guy and your old reliable argument hits the spot!
    I actually painted mine up and I love the guy! I got the clunkerbee as well but to be honnest I never even transformed him cause I like the first one so much..
    Ill get the new one as well but that is cause I can not wait to paint him up properly and give him the other bee’s head.

    It just never hit me until I was playing around with him in flying poses and it clicked that the holes at the bottom of the engines (that are used to store the weapons in alt mode) can accommodate Siege effects.

    I pulled the trigger on MPM Megatron finally. He dropped to under $100 from Amazon Japan, so that'll be a nice Christmas gift to myself.

    What about Legion class instead? I mean, I don't recall the movies having human-sized cars and human-sized robots that turn into choppers :p 

    I also want Commanders. The current Leader class isn't big enough to fit the few behemoths the movies had.

    Aoyi Mech (Black Mamba) LS-11 is absolutely massive! It even makes the Giga Power Dinobots look small.

    Yeah, Commander class figures would be great! Blackout, Scavenger/Demolisher and maybe Jetfire would've benefited from being Commanders.

    A metal earth reedman kit would be cool (and a bit pricky)

    For some reason, one of my Gundam paint markers seems to not want to dry. It's the smaller black one with a small tip and it has a silver pen clip. Any tips on getting it to dry faster?

    Question to my fellow movieverse aficionados. What other Transformers lines / series do you collect, if any?

    I got started with the Unicron Trilogy which was obviously pre-Bay, but since I have also collected Transformers Prime, and CHUG, but have mostly stopped since the start of WFC (give or take the odd figure that seems too enticing to pass up). Otherwise, Studio Series and MPM are where it's at for me!
