    This figure really is great at posing! Its no wonder it was revolutionary for its time. A great KO from a great mold.

    (btw selling this guy)

    Man, I really regret selling mine, it just didn't fit with anything in my collection before. And even though he's a little bigger than BA Prime, he'd fit better now.

    That said, I'm sure we'll get a very MPM representation of him soon, so I'll TRY and hold out on buying another one.

    Great! I'm sure that'll look super. It's still a really cool figure and absolutely, the vehicle mode is superior!;)

    The size difference is really small. If the evasion KO was better sculpted, I would have taken his head for the MPM KO too since it's the right size for their bodies. This KO also has a toe joint. It's only a downward joint but there's plenty of room to cut for upward movement too.
    That being said, a proper MPM evasion Prime (and octane Bee) would be a buy from me too.

    I've been cherry picking the studio series line but they look great here.

    Holy shit I did it! I finally took the plunge and decided to try modding that ugly elbow gap on challenger. I have a heavy custom Destroyer so I figured it was a low risk to try it. And it worked! It was hard, and involved taking apart most of the arm and basically making a new joint, but it was worth it! Only thing is on challenger the joint will look ugly from the front but I think it’ll be worth it. I might actually make a radicons thread for this one. I’m proud of it hehe.

    For a split second I almost thought you said the figure “finally took a plunge” and my heart sunk lol. At least it hasn’t happened... YET. Cool mod!

    Thanks, that helps. I thought I had shaved too much off the sword tabs because I couldn't get them to stay in the slots in robot mode, they'd just fall out, but I transformed him to alt mode and there was still enough friction that they stay in place pretty well


    On a slightly different note, I've been thinking of cutting the handles off his swords, cutting them in half, and then glueing them where they connect in alt mode. He'll have longer and less accurate hip skirts, and be a little more awkward to transform around the front wheel wells, but he'll have a fully integrated transformation, leaving me free to buy the sword and shield set and not have to worry about the underwhelming swords he comes with in either mode

    Better listen to him, Durstatron. Prime doesn't take no Bizkits off of anyone!

    Now that I got that out of the way, awesome shots! You make me want to go out and find him for my collection now.
