    Finally! Together again!
    So awesome. Plan to do a review on them?
    Well hopefully you get them. They may sell out fast.

    Im gonna get them on their regular release. These are early copies, my supplier sells them for about 5 to 10usd more than the regular ones, which will arrive in 2 to 3 weeks. And yeah these'll sell out fast. Right now im the only one with the actual retail release here in PH, according to my supplier.

    How does Soundwave scale with SS Sideswipe, if you have him?

    Haha, it's okay. Dang, I was counting on Soundwave being taller than Sideswipe.

    Not new, Not Studio Series but today I got my other “Junker” Leader class Brawl (got a green one coming in with booklet and all, he was to cheap to pass up and ill sell him on on ebay)
    This one will get the full repaint and ill gut the electronics for some mods..
    He is stunning trough.
    And in scale ;-)
    I need some more pics of the tankmode but thank heavens for “XXX state of the Union” 01D8850A-7C9D-464F-986C-04D187EAEED0.jpeg 1CFFD739-EB21-4F79-8A70-5E969276872E.jpeg 1C3E17B5-55DD-474A-B775-A5202AABB555.jpeg

    The lack of neck articulation is a shame in my opinion :/ but overall I think he looks very solid! The strong arm joints are great

    They're fun but i still cant transfrom them properly without their manual hahaha. I always mess up the torso. Also i love the fact that they all have the same midsection.

    Yeah it really limits the poses that he'll be able to do. He's very solid, everything snaps together nicely. The combiner joints also has nubs to prevent it from slipping. Even if i shake the torso it holds together. Im kinda worried aboud longhaul's waist tho, the torso might be too heavy. 20191207_012443.jpg 1575653423180646411953.jpg

    All this talk about Longarm... dug him out a few days ago and put him on my Autobot shelf, hes probably my favourite non-screen character. Once you unscrew his weapon from his hand he's fantastic. Tonnes of personality, close enough to be is SS scale, great looking and some of the best light piping ever. All he's lacking is a bicep swivel. And perhaps less goofy feet.

    Started some minor mods on my DOTM Megatron.

    What's been done so far:
    • Removed rust paint overspray
    • Cut spikes/mad-max metal shrapnel from front of truck (personal preference)
    • Threw away cloak (personal preference)
    • Dremeled out head wound
    Things left to do:
    • Add greebles to inside of head wound
    • Paint tanker silver
    • Add rust details (possibly textured)
    • Add additional paint details (teeth, cow skull, chains, autobot kill tally)
    • Possibly add netting to front of truck

    This guy is a few points of articulation away from being a really good figure (foremost, head and knees). I dig the look. I also like that you can make a M.A.S.K. Switchblade mode with the motor installed.

    Heads up the next Wave of Studio series deluxes are starting to arrive in port in the U.S, so hopefully they should be hitting retail or etail some time in the next 2 weeks.
