    Sorry but this doesn't make much sense to me. What would you want leaders to be then? By definition they're larger voyagers, with more plastic and more paint and stuff, just like voyagers are bigger deluxes, etc. Even for the ONE figure that is actually a voyager with extra stuff (dotm OP), you have TWO other options to get the same character for less money if that's what you want or can afford. If you don't want to spend more money on larger figures then that's totally cool, but hoping for the same thing for less money is just gonna make you frustrated at this point. Plus if they downsize every potential leader figure to voyager pricepoint then the line will look terrible.

    Only one I get is Shockwave, since he seems like less plastic than a leader should be, but he's really really good so for me he's worth it. Are you saying you don't want more shockwaves? I suppose I understand if that's your point, but there are definitely still characters that need and deserve the leader pricepoint, and I fully support things like dotm OP because that is a good use of the pricepoint to bring something to the line that couldn't exist otherwise. The whole "but it's a voyager figure!" argument simply doesn't make any sense at all.

    It is oversized starscream, its bot mode is too big even to compare with BMB oversized Optimus prime, for a in scale starscream to stand with mpm Optimus, I Choose BMB oversized ss starscream and leader class starscream

    For fun I decided to put all my HFTD, SS, Nest Alliance and other movie figures back in vehicle mode. It was annoying as fuck but I have to admit it bought back memories and was fun as hell

    Why were they so insistent on making him a Lambo when he could’ve been some cool custom MadMax looking thing.

    Yeah, they could've used it for another KSI drone like Stinger; those aren't Decepticons either. I think the Aventador works for Lockdown, but an "End of the Road" '70s/'80s muscle car would've been better. Drift would've been better as a Nissan 370z or Subaru R34 or maybe even an old Civic too, IMO; (Bugatti Veyrons aren't really known for drifting) plus Bumble's 2014 Camaro form is shit, he should've kept the '67 Camaro.

    I'm talking about specifically the 2014 Camaro car design from AoE being trash. But yeah the robot mode is pretty bad too.

    He really, really should've kept the '67 Camaro form for AoE.

    Damn how long has it been since I posted pics here? Recently grabbed Soundwave and as someone who was lucky enough to acquire the original deluxe, this is definitely an upgrade.

    Do we still need an SS version for the ROTF design? This figure looks good enough to be an SS figure lol

    As nothing of a character Lockdown was the Avendator fits way more imo. A Mad Max car is better suited if Lockdown was a gruff Clint Eastwood type like in Animated.

    SS shockwave looks good enough that is black mamba did an upsized ko of him I would debate getting it for my mpm collection. It looks like he’d fit right in.

    An oversized KO with minor improvements seems inevitable.

    Yeah I would be shocked if they didn’t, as long as they get rid of the soft plastic and add some better articulated hands it would fit right into mpm I think

    1) Fallen
    2) Previously most anticipated has included Blackout, 07 Megatron and Prime, Shockwave, new Camaro Bee...so a lot of them lol. Current most anticipated is either Fallen (unannounced) or Blitzwing. Sentinel Prime and ROTF Soundwave are close behind

    AOE Bumblebee is one of the worst movie designs in the entire Bayverse and I will die on that hill. His robot mode is so stupid, the spike wheels are ugly and his weapon looked ridiculous and made zero sense. The only aspect I liked about his robot mode was the new battle mask, but even then, it wasn’t better than the original 07 mask. He looked the best in the first trilogy; personally I favor TF2007, but ROTF and DOTM were good too, for robot and Camaro.

    Yes, I want my ROTF Soundwave 2.0! Don’t crush my dreams lol, I wanna see what they’ve done after 11 years. Maybe I’m hyping myself up too much, but hopefully it’ll be worth it.
    As for your smudge, it looks like either the silver paint rubbed off or it’s just something stuck on it. Maybe try a wet Q-tip first, and if that doesn’t work, a toothpick and gently try to scrape it off? Obviously stop if it doesn’t work and it begins to take off more silver

    He’s purple too, so it makes sense to be inevitable.

    I hope a third party kit still comes out for the original version, and that the improvements aren’t just for the OS

    Whats Whats good everyone happy friday! Mixmaster is back down to 29.99 at amazon. I ended up returning my 07 megatron. I originally did not want to buy 07 megs due to the legs, but got convinced that the paint job will make him worth it. After initially being impressed (the leg engineering was great) the chunky legs came back to haunt me. I might pick him up again sometime in the future but mixmaster and shockwave have moved up in my priority list...

    His height is close to being perfect. If they come out with a ko of the same height or 10% larger with improvements and LED lights it will be VERY hard to resist.
