How is the DNA upgrade for Prime and Jetfire? I just bought it without watching any reviews.
Who would want a Mohawk that can't
I'll be getting Transcrafts version as well, as it'll fit in nicely with MPMs.
It's nice that SS collectors are getting a Mohawk as well, even if it is overly bulky in both modes. And I think it will be a long time before Hasbro decides to make one.
Any chance you could share how one could purchase the lot of mini bots?
Yeah of course. I don't think he has a website but he sells them through his Instagram page. Dino_model_shop is the username. They look really cool with studio series and I'm sure they wouldn't look too out of place with movie Masterpiece figures.
On another note if anyone needs a Car Dropkick I am selling mine. I prefer the copper version and snagged one for cheap. If anyone has a TLK Berserker I'll trade you!
Behold, Nu Optimus Prime with his new weaponry...
Got Megatron in!
Overall, I like him. Was initially bummed that he’s shorter than ROTF Megatron, but he’s still taller than Starscream and Blackout to the tops of their heads, so it’s fine.
I LOVE the silver, and the headsculpt. Phenomenal work on Hasbro’s part. Sculpt work is great. Joints on mine are solid; some looser than I’d like but nothing horrible.
What really does bother me though is exactly what I hated from the beginning: I can’t get over how fat his calves are. This photo I took makes it look better than it is. And the inner fin on my right leg won’t peg in properly, so it’s just floating there. Really wish they came up with a better method of storing the wings, but I’m not a toy engineer so what do I know.
That said, I don’t see myself transforming this guy that much despite the cool vehicle mode, so I might try to remove those inner fins to slim his legs. They’re on mushroom clip type pegs, so idk how to safely remove them without risking the plastic integrity.
Oh okay. That's a nice detail!
All hail Megatron
I was originally on the fence on whether I should get SS 07 Megs or not because of the torso but I’m actually really glad I got him. I actually really like the bulky calves and arms he has. I do wish the shoulders were a bit bigger though and obviously I’d prefer his 07 torso. It’s still an enjoyable figure though and all the joints are fairly sturdy. I also like the scale. He’s about as big as the original voyager movie Starscream figure.
I am epic
Ooooo Gundam weapons
The new ss bee, roadbuster are awesome. Canr belive they make Jeep Bee the best SS bumblebee with ankle ball joint !
It is almost unrecognizable!!! Great work man. Love it!
Can you show roadbuster in his alt mode, i want to know what sponsors he has
It would be nice if Amp and National Guard made it on there but I'm betting Hasbro will probably skimp on official sponsors since the vehicle mode exterior is broken up by the weaponized parts. Probably just the 88 and it looked like the older NASCAR logo on the rear missle pods. Curious to see if Reprolabels will do a set for him
Waiter Scavenger will show the happy couple to their table.
So based on some suggestions i started to reorganize my SS shelf by movie heres the 07 shelf currently awaiting 07 Bumblebee and 07 Megs
My leader class have to be put on the upper shelf but are still in order
SS 07 Megatron size comparisons
I was surprised to find out that these two were out, but I managed to snag them this afternoon.
Megatron is awesome. My only problems are his right tail fin segment won’t tab into his calf and his left foot doesn’t stay tabbed in jet mode. It’s a nice, intuitive transformation though. If/when a 3P makes his cannon I’ll grab one for sure.
I like how wacky this silly sonnuva bitch looks but the number of pegs and tabs that need to line up perfectly for his back end to come together is infuriating. I’ve got it down now but the first time through I probably undid the back at least a half dozen times.
22 days until MPM Ratchet's revealed
Picked up Barricade at a local con today! His wave was skipped here so super happy to finally have him.
Barricade is great! He's one of my favorite figures to come out this year.
