    There apparently is a ko on the way already, but IDK how true this info is, so take it with a grain of salt. I'm just hoping there's a way to fix his head to make it more angular and less rounded FB_IMG_1548601957141.jpg

    And here I was upset that the Studio Series didn't have Movie 1 Megatron. He looks great, though I'm not too crazy about the brown plastic. I know it's movie accurate, but I'd prefer it if it was all silver, like the movie 1 renders.

    Also, can we talk about how morbid these two are. Being able to shove the allspark into Megatron's chest and being able to tear Jazz in two. It's like if Masterpiece Prowl came with an alternate face to replicate this.

    i need this EVEN MORE now. Jazz especially has grown on me since the reveal pics (if only the shoulders were narrower). The backpack on megs is a bit large but easily forgivable considering how literally everything else looks stellar. I dont even collect MPM and i would get these two.

    Haha through the HI- Res Pictures, I just realised that little dude is Sam lol. The older pics made him look like some dude who was late for the science fair or lunch or something.

    For such a big official MP Megs is quite affordable. I'm actually hoping a 3rd party will make an improved more movie accurate looking head in the future.

    I have my doubts about a KO at this stage but if that's true then what are Has/Tak doing to even allow that? But yeah, as I pointed out the way to fix the head is to remove the piece of the head which makes it seem more round.
    Yeah, Ratchet's design by far is going to be the hardest of the original 5. For real though, where does all that kibble go to? And kibble that's there is as you said oddly shaped which means faux parts. I just hope they are able to make him very well considering how long over-due Ratchet is for a definitive figure.

    God that Megatron's good. Came a long way from the crappy 07 leader class figure.

    Now only if the actual thing was painted this way...

    But holy smokes, barely a day after the reveal and there's already a KO being made? Damn.

    Barricade was on clearance last Christmas just to move stock. Bumblebee has been hit by a deluge of 1 star reviews for being too complicated or too small for $80 from ignorant grandparents who bought this for five year old kids. I really am not surprised that Amazon dropped out of the MPM game. They just don't move well.

    How much of his own spine was Jazz storing in his pelvis?

    These both look god-tier, Jazz is an almost definite buy from me but Im priced out of Megs as of now, may have to wait for Studio Series

    I don’t understand why they unveil these figures so damn early in the year and release them so late in the year. This will be a long ass wait

    So we have time to collect money. Oh I just remembered, MP-44 comes out at roughly the same time too and he costs more than these two combined.

    That is a custom DMK style figure that was being circulated a while back.

    Look man, speaking as someone who owns Peru kill and does not have studio series lockdown, there ARE things the studio series does better in terms of proportions, headsculpt, and detailing. Peru kill is an astonishingly engineered figure, but the headsculpt leaves a bit to be desired, the upper body is a bit lean when compared to the CG model, and like all UT/DX9 movie figures to date, the overall detailing is a bit shallow and soft.


    But back to the topic of discussion, it’s amazing what proper posing will do for a figure. IMO, making part of Jazz’s upper legs essentially hip skirts, rather than part of the actual thighs was a mistake, though I suspect it was done in service of increased articulation. You just have to make sure they’re covered down like in the official pics, or he ends up with very oddly proportioned thighs like the HA figure. Otherwise they both look great, loving the fusion cannon and mace with megs. Hoping the mace isn’t a bendy-wire situation though I have a bad feeling it will be.
