    Yeah I'm a moron but at least I have two MPMs to justify two heads :p 

    That could be it with the eyes, I'll try white with transparent blue on top

    At this point I couldn't care less if the damned thing transforms (had to super glue broken fender), I just want him to look as accurate as possible in bot mode.

    Nice! It appears that ShowZ shipped my replacement parts which should be a new smokestack and a fender but the shipping by train is rather slow :(  Stuff sent on 20/05 is not there yet
    Still, sooner than I expected (they told me that WJ will have parts for me in Q4) so perhaps the company is not as dead as we thought! :)

    I just ordered an LS 03 from aliexpress thinking it was the black apple one...

    Are they similar in height/backpack de-fuckening?

    LS-03 is larger by a couple CMs I believe and the backpack is better than MPM-04 but not nearly as nice as WJ.

    I just looked at the two heights and backpacks on ShowZ. Oh well, I guess it’s my own fault. I genuinely thought that BMB was wei jiang. Too many names!
    Black apple is 2 cm shorter.

    I could probably break even if I decide to sell him.

    I am selling my LT 02 after I get this BMB prime though.

    Bmb prime is not bad at all, so I don't think you will be disappointed.

    Thanks. I don’t plan on displaying him directly next to either of my megatrons, so scale isn’t the hill to die on.

    Now the real question is... do I buy an oversized ironhide. Gotta pull up the scale chart again

    Bmb has an OS Ironhide available, but many of us are waiting for the improved WJ Ironhide to go with WJ prime.

    yep I'm waiting for BA's Ironhide. I hope they tackle both MPM Starscream 2.0 and the recently released MPM Ratchet.

    They're not even out yet and you're already assuming the KO will be better? BA isn't even working on any more after Ironhide.

    Hey guys! I got the head in! I LOVE IT. Looks amazing and even more accurate with my chest mod. I am currently working on the video so stay tuned for it. It will fover comparisons and the chest upgrades

    That looks absolutely incredible (from the front). I'm so tempted by that chest filler, but I really don't wanna start loading him up with pieces that have to be removed for transformation. It just wouldn't feel like a transformer to me at that point. I mean, the removable head is already a HUGE leap for me....but it looks SO GOOD.
