    Nah, in the opening scene when u think u see three tires if u watch it closely there’s only two black tires and then the gold ring but darkened cause of the lighting. And for the other scene, whatifsin is right, the top two “tires” are actually one that’s split but the angle makes it look like two.

    I did some trimming on various parts to allow the right side window to move in and down further, and also made it so the ab piece to angle downwards more.

    Edit: finished doing it to the left side.

    Did you follow the mod posted on here earlier or do your own thing? Or some of both?

    Regarding the "small head" on this figure:

    Is it *proportionally* smaller than the original MPM-04 mold? I always felt that the head on original mold was too small. Did this figure make it even smaller?

    Got sometime to put the figure back into truck mode for the 3rd time today and things ended up smooth.

    ... for the cheap price of breaking the fender piece that was being stressed before.

    Also the bumper chrome has indeed faded a good deal... ugh.

    I'd say it's proportionally the same size.

    How's the scale with other movie bots? Particularly the oversized KO Studio series Decepticons? I'm still debating whether or not to try and track down an LT KO MPM Prime so that the cons are a little bigger next to Prime.

    While @Lukelbs and the boys are doing their best modding and trimming, I'm stuck supergluing the broken fender piece...
    Mine were sore for a day here.

    Hi, sorry if this has already been answered, but if anyone has this in truck mode at the moment, would you mind measuring the width of the truck from the edge of the left wheels to the edge of the right ones? (So maximum width not counting the wing mirrors and fuel drums.) All the focus seems to be on the accuracy and scale of the robot mode, but I'm curious about how well the vehicle mode scales well with MPM-03.
