    Well maybe, or maybe it will be in scale with their Prime and too big to go with anything else.

    Hope he's a good size. He is the biggest reason I'm having issues putting my MP cars with my WJ evasion Prime (who is the same height as the upcoming best movie Prime ever). We'll see. If the size makes any sense I'll probably get him.

    Yeah, their MPM Prime, MPM VW Bee, and even the old TLK Barricade were all about 1/24 Human Alliance scale, so there's a chance this could be a bit too big for the MPM Carbots.

    I'm hopeful though. I'd like to replace the DotM Leader I've been using with my MPMs.

    This is Black Mamba BTW (for those who don't recognise the logo), pre-order up at OhMyPrimus at the least. OMP claim the robot mode will have a height of 25cm / 9.8". With the original MPM-06 having a maximum height of 20cm (fully upright, less in an A-stance), that puts the upscale at an additional 25%. While this should make for a better scaled robot mode, I think it's going to end up being too large in vehicle mode - my best guess at the MPM carbots is 1:28.5, while MPM Ironhide is about 1:29. I would guess at 1:23-1:24 for this one by upscaling the original's vehicle mode measurements by 25%.

    (Original vehicle mode: 8.56" x 3.3". Estimated OS vehicle mode: 10.7" x 4.125").

    You are being redirected...

    We were talking about it in the OS KO MPM Prime thread. This may potentially bridge the scaling gap between official MPM-3 and BMB Prime.

    This is now being offered in our country under Leader Class price range or a bit lower.

    Good. I hope they keep the ratchets and don't cheap out on this one.

    I will consider it ONLY if it the original's problems has been fixed AND he has ratchets for the outward movement of the legs, otherwise I am "ok" with my MPM version.

    I hope that's the case!

    This seems a tad too big compared to the WJ BA Prime, but I can overlook that if they actually reengineered the chest to tab in securely and fold the wheels better. Based on that teaser picture, not sure they did. Will keep an eye on this though

    Well it is BMB, which means they could be doing some minor fixes, but for the most part, it will most likely be the same. Look at their BMB OS KO MPM Prime.. it's mostly the original just upsized. Not the kind of re-engineering that BA/WJ have done either.

    Was hoping an improved KO MPM Ironhide would be the same size as the original... don't want the floppy mess that is the original figure, but can't have an ironhide that's taller than my current Prime either.

    But happy for everyone collecting at the Weijang BA Prime scale though.

    You’re correct. So unless we see otherwise, I’m not putting too much stock in this figure. Hell it might potentially have an even worse chest issue since it’ll be so large

    I’m on the same boat... OS Ironhide wouldn’t works well with my LT MPM Optimus Prime
