    I noticed that the first (and only) time I saw the movie. It’s just another turd on a mountain of shit. Has anyone else seen the shot in dotm where Sam is carrying Wheelie and when they switch to a wide shot he’s not there? They forgot to insert him into Sam’s hands.

    @erwinsims, MPM scale is great, because there are even people that somewhat scale with them!

    My favorite thing is scrolling through this thread and reading your pun comments after long stretches of radio silence! Delightful!

    That is one awesome pose for Bee that I’ll concede the MPM can do that SS-49 can’t. Just because it lacks wrist swivels lol.
    Also, I wanted to hunt down HA Sam and Mikaela for a while, but idk if they’d look right with the SS collection. They’d be somewhat comedically oversized

    That’s it. I’m never preordering official stuff anymore. For the longest time I thought hasbro pulse would be the first ones to get this wave (or at least only a day behind amazon), but the voyagers shipped late and now the leaders have been moved to the 13th, and most collector-oriented sites don’t have any stock at all or they won’t be getting them for another few weeks! Amazon, as random as it is, seems to be OK with breaking street date and just shipping as they come in, so I’ll be waiting from now on and checking frequently once the release gets close.

    And don’t even get me STARTED on the mess that is retail rn, with their brand new heli dropkicks and cogmen...

    I have the same problem as well And I HATE IT! And its bs because I found Tf1 Megatron a few weeks ago, giving me hope the new wave would be hitting soon, but NOPE! Full pegs of Dropkick and Cogmen, or nothing SS related at all.

    I always have to be vigilant. The Mad Punner usually strikes when I'm away.

    Worry not old friend..I is back :D 
    Finally broke down and got SS38?? Good for you, and he looks awesome as well!! Can't wait to see the finished product, and I see that ur Ultimate Prime custom is awesome as well!! :) 
    Damn that WJ Prime is fucking amazing!! My first one got lost in the mail, it was never updated after 11/27, and ShowZ made me wait till the 01/07 to ship me a new one :mad: .

    On a positive note, I did finally get my MPM Jazz while I was away, and he's awesome!! :)

    Does Walmart even carry SS leader class figures anymore in brick&mortar stores?

    Next thing you know, Soundwave is gonna start reading the script and predict everyone’s lines, including his own Decepticon brethren.
    If I understand correctly, you’re asking whether the original movie toys of those characters are better or the Studio Series ones. Personally, Studio Series wipes the floor with all of them. 2007 Leader Prime and Megatron are still pretty good for what they are. Now Brawl on the other hand, his 2007 Leader class toy is better in terms of size, which is one thing it does better than Studio Series. His 2007 Deluxe didn’t really do him much justice though and hella tabbing issues with the arm. Studio Series Brawl still does much better though as the accuracy with that one is nailed a lot better. Although definitely, he needed to be a bit more beefier.
    I actually didn’t know Amazon broke their own street dates. That’s interesting. I don’t really like to order online since I’ve had worst luck than going in the store to buy the figure. I heard the newer waves should be stocking around January 12th or something because that’s when Target apparently will stock the newer stuff. Take my words with a bit of salt though since I’m not sure if it’s true.

    I’ve actually noticed they’ve been restocking Car Shatter and Cogman more than helicopter Dropkick now though. Scrapmetal is just missing though.
    Not my Walmart afaik. They don’t even carry the Voyagers either so I can’t just drive out to Walmarts in hopes of finding Mixmaster or Megatron. Target on the other hand usually has leaders... mostly just DoTM Megatron.

    MPM Jazz is next up for me too. MP Hound's sacrifice will pave the way for him. I'm excited for MPM Ratchet even though he will end up with with ROTF leader Prime. I'm assuming that we're going to get improved and properly sized KOs of MPM Ratchet and Starscream for my MPMs.
