    I don't know if they cut it off, but isn't there just some sort of extra maneuver you do to increase the range? I'm at work, otherwise I'd fiddle and report. :p

    Another user reported that you can restore the knee bend by cutting off the nubs, since the knee hinge itself is unmodified, if you don't mind doing that kind of thing.

    Is that the Black Mamba Ironhide, BTW, and the original MPM-03 or Legendary Toys KO? The respective heights look pretty good, I'd have thought the Ironhide would be too large to fit between those two, since I'd gotten the impression that the height difference between BB and IH should be about the same as between IH and OP.

    Yeah many people had done it. But this guy is still a 90 quids something figure so I wouldn't want to mess with it too much considering my budget.

    (But then I shanked the heck outta my MPM-4 and it was 140 something back then. Mostly hard to notice places where I don't mind them being all mangly though)

    Official MPM-6 actually. Among the figures displayed on the kiddy table, only Starscream's a KO.

    Hi guys, I recorded the video of my mod from page 233 and it is uploading now, should be done soon. Please read the description of the video on the youtube video incase you sont want to watch the whole thing. The mod is the first part and then I go into a little discussion on what he actually scales with and what we should be on the lookout for if anyone is just getting started with the movie figures. This website is saying i need more posts before I can post a link but I will try anyway.

    Nice video and very informative!!
    just wanted to ask if you could show a comparison between the one you have in the video vs the one without removing the red piece at the chest?

    Great work on the mod! I'm going to try to make it work without the parts forming.

    This figure has not disappointed with the exception of the fragile Fender pieces on the back which have Forum stress marks on them. And I'm happy that the wings from leader class jetwing Optimus Prime do fit with no modifications and are very picturesque with this figure. 20191025_235828.jpg 20191025_235523.jpg View attachment 28430694 20191025_235508.jpg 20191025_235455.jpg 20191025_235320.jpg 20191025_235313.jpg 20191025_235303.jpg 20191025_234300.jpg 20191025_234251.jpg 20191025_233920.jpg 20191025_233911.jpg 20191025_233907.jpg 20191025_233811.jpg 20191025_233807.jpg 20191025_233711.jpg 20191025_233701.jpg 20191025_233546.jpg 20191025_233415.jpg

    Bro, ur foot breaking off isn't only ur problem, it happened on mine too. If u contact ur seller, they should be able to send u a replacement piece, which then is all about knocking out a couple of pegs to replace the foot

    Man, thank you very much!!! Talking about scales, this is exactly what I also think: he is perfect for the mpm carbots a bmb megatron, and now I am 100% sure of it! It is also perfect next to my M01 Commander, they would look like brothers! My only issue is about altmode, as I have never seen this truck text to the Camaro or next to M01! If you have time, can you make a photo or the same video, but with altmodes? That would help me a lot!
    And that chest, you really got it! That's how it's supposed to be!

    I really think that this photo here exactly shows how too short mpm Optimus is! Can you take the same picture with The WJ in it?

    If you mean a before and after my thumbnail of the video actually shows that. The left side of the picture shows the chest stock and unmodified showing how high up it is, and the right side shows after the mod.

    Unfortunately I bought him used off of ebay from a states side seller a year ago at this point so I dont think that is an option. If i can get a screw and put it through the hole and screw it intonthe foot, that should work

    I don't have M01 but I will try my best to show the alt modes today for you

    I prefer my Optimus ROTF leader sized so it's literally fine.

    Thank you for the pics! I find him fine and good with the other members of the team!! I only don't know how it scales with ironhide, who looks a little short. But I could accept it, as long altmodes are in scale.

    Hey, thank you very much! I think they're pretty near to perfect scale. How would you like like to be? Do you think the truck ist too big?

    This is actually very close to perfect. The top view sells it. Bumblebee's Camaro is slightly longer than half of Optimus' Peterbilt and we see that size replicated nicely here

    From the looks of it, I broke the exact same tiny piece on mine. Sadness. I did have to squint at your photo to see where it was though so it's not the worst thing in the world :/
