    My LS-03P is finally shipping! Is there an upgrade kit for BMB prime besides the Jetfire addons?

    My copy landed in the states last night. I'm still really mad at myself for doing a ton of research on scale and thought I bought the Black Apple one, but ended up buying this... I can probably sell it on ebay for a profit if I don't like it ;)

    I think you will really enjoy the black and purple beast. Here is a few photos of mine. This color scheme rocks.

    I’m pretty happy with this big guy. He makes my ironhide look like a miniature. I ordered their BMB ironhide and hopefully it will be here in a few weeks. The aliexpress store almost cancelled my order, but then they found the last one.

    The FWI Jetwing kit (originally for the ROTF Leader mold) fits, although it's a little tricky getting the big guns to stay in his hands.

    The panels on the inside and back of his calves can be tilted outward from the bottom. I think that's all I've noticed.

    To tell you the truth I have never transformed it. You can see in the photos how I store the weapons. I do the same for the other BMB Primes as well.

    Hi, does anyone know whether this guy can stand upright inside a standard detolf section? The listed height is generally shown as 31-32cm, but IIRC the height allowance for detolfs is about 30cm per section.

    Just bend his knees a little bit? You could probably put him in a pose that lowers his height by a few cm. I had to pose my BMB ROTF megs to get him on a shelf with lower clearance.

    Me too. It seems with WJ/BA being taken down, that the BMB Market is having a bit of a resurgence. I bought the LS-03F myself, and I'm tempted to get the LS-03. I do like the LS-03P as Nemesis Prime. It looks great. I have a few questions tho, having not owned a BMB LS-03 version before..
    1. How does the backpack sides stay together, I notice some pictures of it splits in the center, and I was hoping there was a tab to hold the two sides together at the base under the gas tanks on the back..
    2. How is the foot pin joints? Have people complained about breakage before like with LT-02??
    3. Is there any change in the head sculpt from the MPM/LT-02 to the BMB versions??
    4. How are the joints on these figures given their scale being a bit larger then the WJ/BA MPM?? Are they pretty tight?

    Do you own the LS-03F? How do the abs look? Have you done the compression of parts to make the abs sit in closer to the stomach like I have seen in youtube videos?
    What is the paint applications like? Is there any danger of chipping and peeling? Is the paint relatively strong?

    Thanks in advance.
    I'm excited to see what the LS-03F looks like and fairs when it arrives from Aliexpress..

    Just got my LS-03P today. What are some good poses for this guy? I really love his red axe but can't find a good menacing pose with it. Also share any good poses you have with any mpm prime mold you have for ideas!
