    I did the math, altrough the height is a little low, he is 1:30 ish so that is enough for me!


    he comes closest to SS Starscream and Sentinel is the long answer.. the short one is a Hell no ;-)

    I will get him, even if he is a little to low, width and length are good.. it is the tires/wheels that are to low/small.. maybe that can be solved somehow.

    They must be thinking about Leadfoot who made just a short cameo.

    They're not entirely wrong though. Parts of his corpse lived on in the KSI robots :ev:

    Maybe they’re thinking of crosshairs lol. He’s green too and has a similar face.

    I was introduced to Transformers partway through the Unicron Trilogy but my interest in Transformers rose to what it is today due to the live-action movies. I was 15 when Transformers 2007 made its theatrical debut.

    The thin wheels are screen accurate for bot mode, and only noticeable in car mode from a really low angle at the back. If you do get him, I don't think you'll even want to complain about that lol

    He's the bees knees ;)  But that upgrade kit is so expensive...
    I'm one of the 20 people who left comments correcting them :p  They tried to give a shit about the movieverse for a bit but they just don't most of the time on their official account. It's mostly G1 memes and siege/earthrise product reveals.

    Quoting myself so the conversation makes sense... I did the fix @savio-prime showcased, ended up having to use a woodburning tool I've used in the past for loosening pins, and carved a channel for the pin head to rest and well, the design from the factory is flawed. I can pretty much get the waist to sit flat, but man, there's a lot of give. It's a shame, he's one smidge away from being as perfect as a toy can be for Studio Series and they still botched it. Fortunately, he actually stands up straight instead of crooked, now.

    Thanks, Savio!

    @TFXProtector that's a bummer. :( 

    An alternative, if you haven't done it yet, is to unfold and tab the roof folding panel (connected to the windscreen) up into his upper back. That secures the pelvis to the upper body as well.
