    I think I'll wait to see if bmb makes a ko with better paint apps, those legs just seem way to plain.

    I dunno... hopefully it's just preorder that's sold out and they'll have stock after like mpm jazz and megs (great and decent figures respectively)... but this was a great great price!

    is it just me or is ratchet slightly taller than ironhide in these shots? that would make him perfect scale for the OS collectors right?

    He looks about the same size or slightly shorter to me, I think it’s just the light bar that makes him look so tall

    He looks like the same height at the top of the head, but Ironhide looks shorter because he's stockier and his shoulders are lower.

    It is such a pet peeve of mine to see Bumblebee with is door wings fully spread out like that.

    These pics are full of mistransformations and poor posing. Looks like Jazz is the only one properly displayed.

    Ratchet has to be a really complicated figure if not a single photo has gotten his shoulders and backpack to look good.

    Oh what, that's unfortunate. I'll bookmark this page and check it often though. Even without the current sale, the pre-order price is cheaper than pre-ordering from Japan. I've already pre-ordered Starscream from Amazon Japan so I'm stuck with that now.

    Loving Ratchet. The group scale looks off to me though.

    I am gonna use
    BMB Prime (LS03)
    BMB Ironhide (LS09)
    LTSO3C Bee
    MPM Jazz
    MPM Ratchet

    I think that perfects the scale in both modes.

    BA Prime might be a little better possibly.

    Damn, Ratchet is definitely too tall. This is going to fuel those "the KOs work better" arguments for sure.
    I think you're right that a mix of official and KO is the way to go if you want them to work together. I'll be using my BA Prime for sure to display, and I'm going to have to do something about Ironhide if that BA one doesn't come out...

    It depends on how you define MPM scale. If you use Prime (and Ironhide) as your benchmark he'll certainly appear too tall, but if you use Bee, Jazz, and Barricade he'll appear fine if not too small.

    I think so far they've all looked good together at least, but Ratchet seems to break that a bit (if you're using all official MPMs). Before at least prime was taller than IH, who was taller than bee, who was taller than jazz. Maybe it'll look different if someone poses them differently but as of now Ratchet looks a bit too tall and bulky for the group.

    There is so much wrong with these photos to make any definitive statement.

    From the posing, to the angle, to the mistransformation.

    Wait'll we get him in hand.

    How many more angles do you need before you can start forming an opinion?
