    If you mean me, I actually don't care about exact scaling. People here actually care a lot about precise scaling with these figures so I'm just saying it how it is.

    This is a serious matter.

    But also it kinda is somewhat. For me at least

    If he was actually 28 or 27.5 he would scale well with unique toy's lineup. But I think it's 29 with the hips extended. But overall, I still really want this guy to have outward hip ratchets, cause if he doesn't have them, I might lower my priority on this guy

    I would think that if this guy has outward ratchets, it won’t be able to extend the hips. Becuase that joint was the friction pin joint causing the looseness in the first place. But I’d much rather have outward ratchets than have the ability to extend the hips, becuase even at his base height he’ll still be taller than the normal MPM and thus be in better scale. Plus it would let him scale better with MPM Megatron or UT dragoon

    But I agree with you, if they didn’t put ratchets in those, I will be suuper disappointed. Fingers crossed that ain’t the case

    Yeah I’m kinda bummed about that too, but at least getting WJ Prime and MPM Megatron together will be an awesome feeling. I want to see some early reviews before preordering though

    I just got bmb ls-06 Megatron and I’m definitely ordering a bmb ls-03 prime to display both. I want to wait for black apple but I guess I’ll just buy it too. These figures are amazing.

    Looking good.

    I am guessing that they will modify Ironhide next. I still need a straight OS Barricade to go with the 28cm OS Bumblebee.

    Hate to bump this thread but it doesn't seem like we'll be getting any updates, 4 more days until CNY. Doubt there'd be any updates during that time since Wei Jiang said on Facebook they've already taken a break off since the 29th of last month until the 15th, or at least that's their factories - I'm uncertain if that includes their other departments, specifically the one involving product development. I'm not sure how much BA relies on Wei Jiang to actually modify figures but I'm sure it still affects him even if he wanted to give us any tangible updates if he has no access to Wei Jiang's facilities.

    Oh no, the entire country practically shuts down for CNY. Your guess is most likely accurate about updates.

    Is there or should there be a movie Megatron that is taller than this guy?

    We will probably need an upscaled MPM-08 eventually.

    Optimus is 28" while Megatron is 35" in universe.

    A 35cm Megatron could match the likes of WJ AOE Evasion/Unique Toys etc.

    A 40cm Megatron is what a 32cm Optimus Prime needs.

    But realistically, a 35cm Megatron for relative scaling should be good enough.

    BMB Megatron might work but I’m not sure. Bottom line is yes we will need an OS version of MPM Megatron to scale properly with this Prime
