    Deluxe Barricade really is like a miniaturized MPM version. Out of all our SS figures, he's the hardest to get into alt mode. He has the smallest of tolerances.

    Today I got these three $2 Legends class KOs. Really fun and cute. Cam's too shit to take pics.

    Prime had three out of four loose ball joints but I've taken care of those and his paint is a little different from the real deal (lighter blue, unpainted windows in robot mode). Starscream is Starscream, nothing out of the ordinary I see about him. Last but not least, Ratchet is big for his size and blue for some reason so I'mma call him Cybertronian Smurf. I'm assuming their 1:1 to the originals.

    Anyway man Movie 1 Legends were shit.

    Seeing everyone posting pictures really makes me wanna get 07 Megatron. But since here in Singapore Megatron tends to shelf warm like crazy I'm gonna wait for a few months to get him in discount.

    amazing how if you look at it, Megatron loses his finish in each film until he's rusting away in the third one

    Unno Amazon sells assorted screw sets that are the perfect size for tf figures. That way you dont have to cannibalize parts from your favorite figures

    It's the TLK Bumblebee head. It really does look great!
    The head I attached is the TLK head. The TLK head is the same as the SS01 head but it may be slightly bigger. It's a good fit and it's not too hard to put on or take off.

    Despite being a bit on the bland side, I still think SS-38 here has quite a good truck mode...

    IMG_20191214_104050.jpg IMG_20191214_104000.jpg

    Speaking of truck, does anyone has any suggestions for a trailer that can fit well with SS-38 in truck mode (It doesn't matter if it's official, 3rd party, or KO)?

    You can try a normal 1:48 or 1:32 trailer from a modeltruck?

    my 2007 cons finally have their (scale correct)leader.
    Screamer is to big but the rest ready look amazing together.

    Yeah it's totally great that someone is finally doing something for SS scale, I just think they could have done a better job. The bike mode almost looks like a chibi. Depending on price and final colors I might still get him.
    I should be getting mine today! I'd have it already but it was stuck in new freakin jersey last night.
    Starscream all like "I feel overdressed, we were supposed to show up in vehicle mode??"
    Where is everyone getting mixmaster already?? Megs is out but I haven't seen mixy boi anywhere yet...

    Barricade is definitely cool!
    He really evokes the onscreen character.
    That said my nitpicks:
    -no thigh swivel
    -waist/torso doesn't seem to want to peg together?
    -Same with the back part of the legs (the one formed from the rear end of the car)
    -as mentioned transformation is difficult. Especially getting those tabs lined up.
    -The forearm transformation is SCARY. I really wish they didn't use clear plastic on this one...
