    I thought they were both 29cm? That looks like a pretty big difference to me.

    Ankles on the HB Megatron look like they are extended up a little bit.

    Plus WJ Prime looks like his hips aren't extended, or his neck.

    That looks really good! This makes me think MPM4 will be too small...
    I get the feeling Hasbro is going to make another MPM Prime eventually, liked they did with G1 Prime, and it will scale better with the car bots...

    Well, technically, the bigger MPM's like Optimus and Ironhide are a bit too small for the carbots, but MPM 4 and 8 scale well with each other since in the movie charts, Prime is 28 feet and Megatron is 35. Prime in certain scenes of the movie had his height adjusted to be taller, I believe around 30 feet or more in some scenes because the VFX artists don't always perfectly scale him. So any scale between the two can work as long as it works for you :)

    I just spoke with terry, he said all the big modification companies (THF, WJ, IT ext) are getting slammed by HasTak and it’s definitely slowing production. Black Apple wave 2 has already been sold out.

    Hastak has all this competition in their sights like....

    Can't really say I'm surprised, given recent events involving Zeta. Wonder why they haven't bothered up until this point.

    Well, if you order from showZ right now, you’ll probably have to wait for the third batch which they said should come around late October. But showZ has been wrong before so the third batch could come mid to late November. I thought Terry ran out of supply for this guy, but I checked his site and it says 10 available
