    Tiny turbo changers sqweeks is the best Masterpiece Transformer Hasbro has brought out in a while. Seriously though that scale is amazing. I like him so much that I made him the mascot of my channel.

    Finally got to transform him
    Truck mode looks really nice
    it's really hard to tab everything together and not all the wheels hit the ground for me, but its still pretty impressive

    I accidentally broke a small part of the wheel archs at the back and its sad but atleast it's not so noticeable
    Overall very impressed, but the transformation and tabbing is very tedious

    Finally got an abs configuration which is movie accurate and didn’t raise the chest too high like others E169F442-BBF6-4BC8-97FB-60DE970660AC.jpeg

    Does anyone else experience this tabbing problem btw? I really can't seem to solve it and I'm afraid that if I exert too much effort I might end up breaking it

    mine did that at first. But after many transformations and keeping constant pressure on the grill in vehicle mode for like 30 seconds at a time. It seals good now.

    1. Make sure the arm panels are slid all the way forwards.
    2. Make sure the headlights did not fall behind the grill.
    3. Make sure that the double thigh joints are pushed all the way back.

    Ok, just preordered this guy today... Hope I'll get him somewhen!! I just wasn't sure if I wanted this or BMB ls03f but maybe this one scales better with mpm carbots (both in alt and robot mode) and can also scale well with os Brawl-Bonecrusher-Starscream-Blackout. BMB is maybe just too big! I think I never found pictures of this in altmode with bee or barricade (thousands photos only in robotmode!) And I would like to see how he scales with bmb ironhide in altmode. Can someone help?

    Did you order him from ShowZ? I pre-ordered in June and they told me earlier this week that, if I completed the payment before the end of the month, I would get him in the next batch they are about to ship out. You might want to reach out to them (assuming you did in fact order from ShowZ) and see what they can tell you just in case :) 

    As far as BMB's, yeah, he is a very large. I would say unnecessarily so unless you are wanting a figure that will scale well with either of BMB's Megatrons or WJ's Megatron. It's a great figure, but when I get BA's Prime, I may just put BMB's in car mode to display next to BA in bot mode.

    I'll try to get some car shots with Bee and Barricade for you when he gets here :)

    I have the same problem on mine or rather a similar problem. On mine the tab is slightly smaller than its supposed to be so it goes in the hole just fine it just doesn't hold. 1571935425265927746755117402756.jpg

    Thanks guys!
    Wasnt able to update right away but after trimming the tab a little and pushing it more, I managed to get it right after a while

    It looks really good now and the gap is so small that it doesn't really bother me anymore

    I preordered it on Ohmyprimus, as I already bought a couple of times from them and was very happy with price and liefer times (i live in Germany).
    I will probably write them a mail to ask if they can suggest a date... I hope to get it as a Christmas present but maybe I'm too optimistic... No problem, i can't wait... There are so many others Transformers I also want to buy!

    Thank you, that would be a big help to calm down my curiosity! Do you accidentally also have bmb or mpm Ironhide?

    I do understand you! We're on the same boat, as many others I think... I cannot imagine what will go on when he will be announced

    Has anyone had difficulty exchanging the rotating head for the one with the fold out mask? I can't seem to get the replacement one to fit down on the peg with the old eye insert put in (I did notice that the installed eye section wasn't symmetrical, but no matter which way I insert it, it still doesn't line up the hole quite right with the replacement face piece, which prevents me from being able to put it down in place. In the end it's not the end of the world, since the old style face visually looks identical, as far as I can tell, but it's still a bit annoying to not be able to put the "new" piece on.

    I'm not really sure why the new face was included as an option, frankly, since as I said it looks identical and if they were going to change it out they should have just done so and skipped the rotating face altogether.

    Didn't some people here cut those off and reported that it was way better? @Lukelbs didn't you do that?
