    Is there any BB Prime with elegant feet? I haven't seen one. I am talking about alt mode btw

    The feet on the Voyager are pretty good, since they fold up in between the legs and form the trailer hitch.

    At this case, they aren't in bot mode. C'mon, we have good TLK and 1st trilogy Prime with perfect robot mode and prefect truck. Can't anyone do a great BB Prime in which the feet are good both in alt and robot mode? I look to this thing and I can never imagine it's a simple truck, the bot legs are so obvious

    While they could make this thing which looks pretty good

    Fire Scorpion has very good legs and feet. It hides the feet well enough and doesn't require big pegs to lock them together.

    That's the one time they nailed the engineering and they don't even use it for masterpiece figure.

    The best robot modes had the feet kibble in the truck, and the others didn't have so good leg. I syill don't like the Scorpion leg kibble in alt mode. Imo, BMB's solved the leg kibble better (or just used SS engineering, whatever)

    This can only mean one thing...

    G2 Prime design superiority for the movies
    (would actually love a design like it).

    We all know the fire truck with obvious guns will always be the best

    I don't think the truck bed is accurate to the movie because if you watch it, you'll see that the truck bed is very long and narrow in the film. So no figure will actually look accurate. The reason I like Fire Scorpion the most is that it includes the taillights and that the bed looks cool. It's not accurate at all, but since it looks impossible to be accurate, I rather it looks cool.

    This is the best I can do with pics. The sun is always in the shot.

    Goodntimes when base OP was a power house

    But back on topic, jeez when I saw Bumblebee movie I thought we'd have figures with a great accuracy, identical to the movies. But the fact I see better/more accurate Bay line figures make me feel empty :throw 
    But well, who said it'd be a good idea putting parts of another vehicles in the bots, like Prime pieces indicates he transforms in the evasion mode truck but it doesn't happen in practice. What happens: we always get BB OP figures which always turn into the evasion truck

    I'd just assumed that gap is just due to transformation, since the arm forms the side of the truck and there needs to be a gap there to hide the bot kibble in truck mode.

    The colors look better, as if more paint is applied. It could be the photo box studio lighting, but it doesn’t look like it is all cast plastic colors now.
    Still feeling confident the alt is mis-transformed…

    Robot mode looks really good in my opinion, though I'm still not a fan of the kitty ears in the truck mode, but sacrifices must be made I guess.

    The bastards are really not thinking about considering the public opinion about the figure. Everyone is fucking unsatisfied with the damn cat ears and windows in the arms and yet they just keep going
    I guess I'll have to take those windows off by myself, bcs they really break the bot mode which is what matters at this figure

    Are you under the mad impression that they were going to change finalized engineering-tied parts of the final toy because of some grievances on an american forum? On a toy that was already clearly finished and already going into mass production?
