    You forgot to transform the car parts in his lower legs.

    Apologies is this is answered. I just got this guy. I think I have him transformed right but is there something that is suppose to lock the shoulders into place? When I move the arms, the shoulder rotates around.

    Painted all the blue a metallic purple.

    I suppose I could have done a darker purple first, then dry brush metallic over that but I like this much better as it is now.

    The only thing I know regarding that is that once the shoulders are fully rotated upwards, the hood should fold over the top of the door window hinges on his back and tab into 2 slots. There are 2 tabs under the hood for each slot.

    Looks amazing. Even more menacing. Did you do something with the dead.

    Thanks! Besides adding purple over the blue above his brow, I just used an app called Picsart to add red glows for his eyes.

    Yeah I thought it looked to great. It’d be hard to do but it could look amazing.

    From 3rd Party Transformers, no time at all. From Hasbro Transformers, over 2 years. From the Hasbro sections of these boards? Little longer? :oops:

    TRU actually got this guy in stock? Thought they went under before he was released?

    So a week ago I decided to dip a toe into the MPM line with a MPM Bumblebee KO. He's taking an entire month to arrive, so I bought a KO Barricade in the meantime and he's great. It's crazy how much more accurate these toys become when budget becomes less of a barrier. The wheel-wrists, frowny-faced bumper, and how his tiny feet keep him upright somehow all make him worth the extra cost over his eventual Studio Series version.

    I've been hesitant with buying MPM toys because of their cost but the amount of detail and astonishing vehicle and robot mode accuracy makes them soooo worth it. Plus, most times, if ya wait a couple of months there'll be a KO version with better paint and a lower price coming out. xD

    They're so awesome but I think I like MPM Barricade more.
