    I said what I'm planning to do, that's really as far as I will go because I don't do heavy mods anymore (nothing quite like seeing the inside of your knuckle).

    I have thought of the one thing that a 3rd party upgrade or 3D print could do of making some shin pieces that attach under the cab section and swing on a hinge that taper off the tops of his legs... but I have neither the time, money, nor digits to build them.

    I don't know why but BB looks more like a ...well... toy. Especially the alt mode

    Shatter actually has her real face. Dunno why that feels like such an accomplishment now.

    Whoever is responsible at Hasbro for leading the charge on Studio Series deserves a damned medal and then some. This line is so amazing and I hope it continues as long as it needs to do every character justice.

    I enjoy some of the Siege stuff, but it just feels so tame compared to what they're accomplishing with Studio Series. The last time I felt really wowed by a CHUG line was Combiner Wars.

    We will see.. I am working on something but it barely left the drawingboard so I am not revealing to much, but if it works, it will be an improvement.
    But first I need to finish Longarm, he is being painted as we speak and then he will be reevaled in a tread., also I started painting Brawn,so ill be a while before I get to Megatron.
    And inside of your knuckle? auch!

    Oeh! the SS Reveals look nice, I believe I will need Roadbuster and have high hopes for Leadfoot and Topspin!

    The Jeep Bee looks like a retool of the WW2 Bee.. and as a better use of that mold.. he looks great

    Stunning reveals! Hasbro and Takara have been killin it so far.

    *laughs in indonesian*

    Perfect. Now all we need is a more accurately sized Ironhide and Prime if Hasbro doesn't mind doing them again :p 

    He's on 50% discount in my country. ~$29 in USD.

    And also how big Ironhide is. Next to Ratchet, Bee, and Jazz he looks alright.
    It's the most wonderful time of the year.

    Well ain't you lucky! I'll have to wait until nexr year to get them... :(

    Wow all three of those look really nice!

    Roadbuster looks really nice, although it looks like he doesn't have ankle tilt. I might wait til all three wreckers are out til I get them since individually they're not my favorite designs.

    Shatter, just like Dropkick, seems to have been done justice the second time. It's a shame that we can't have two cars that look good next to each other, but I've wanted a Shatter with an awesome robot mode since the movie came out last year.

    I really had no desire for another Bee, but goddamn, that jeep Bee looks so good! I will definitely be buying another Bee. I've given up pretending that I'm done with Bumblebees cause dammit they keep making great ones. Faux chest is a minor bummer but he looks great. I just rewatched and enjoyed the Bumblebee movie tonight so it's extra crazy that this was revealed today!
    This is exactly how I feel. Combiner wars blew me away but then they just started remolding everything over and over and it burned me out within half a year. Then I got big into 3rd party, sold most of my old stuff, then MPMs and studio series came along at the exact perfect time to make me want Transformers again. They've grabbed hold of me and haven't let go even after almost two years!

    Given the shrunken scale Roadbuster will likely be as short as Leadfoot.

    I’m so happy leaks aren’t like this anymore

    did you click the option that all of them should ship as one box? Might be one of the figures isn’t in stock yet. If it’s not that, possible that it’s from a third party seller and that holding them back.

    Maybe still need studio series of them, but may look good in vehicle mode for time being.
