    the tab holes below the smokestacks that the headache rack goes into do a more than sufficient job of keeping things in place.

    Optimus actually arrived on Earth a little early and decided to do some sightseeing at Yosemite while he waited for Bumblebee to finish his mission.

    I know this figure is sooo good.
    But the scale is what's keeping me off getting it and the price point of it's size.

    It’s a $30 voyager and good sized. I have a lot easier time accepting the $30 voyager price point than the $20 deluxe and $50 leaders.

    Well the best take away for getting this small voyager is the mechanism involved in it's transformation.
    It's seems an MP'ish method for a retail product.

    I guess I was spoiled by previous movie toy line and chugs that have set the bar for each size classes.
    Studio Series I think is WFC's precursor to reduce newer toys' scale.

    Still not getting this. I’ve got SS38 on my nightstand next to T30 Springer. They scale well together with CW Ultra Magnus and TR Hot Rod. He is on par with a lot of Voyagers.

    I think it looks fine with the Siege. These are the only ones I have, other than Siege Prime (which I don't really like).

    i literally have this dude, movie blitzwing and shatter mixed with siege stuff. the bb movie aesthetic is much "softer" than previous movies and the grit and greebles on siege helps them blend more too, but even tr bumblebee doesn't look too out of place. it helps that siege shockwave's 'face' is way more detailed than any other g1 based shockwave.

    Cool. I’m really thinking of getting him, but I have a mostly mixed Prime Wars and Siege collection so I wanted to make sure he’d fit. I love my Potp Prime but the way the new figures all scale together better is making him stand out in

    To be fair, it’s the same size as Classics/Henkei Prime I found out. Not sure if this helps :p

    Cannot wait for what 3p companies have in planned for this guy. Longer legs, better feet, thicker hips and it will be all good.

    what happens when they serve you a burger and you have to discard half of it? I am pretty sure you would rather eat something else at that point...

    Easy, i willingly bought the figure wholeheartedly and even at its current form, i have enormous love for it. Is it perfect? No. Can it be improved? Yes. That is how much i love it, i am willing to spend another $20-30 to make it even better.

    I just got mine, but is the front piece supposed to looks like that? It's not flushed all the way, a bit misaligned which looks like not supposed to be for me, did I transformed it wrong somehow?

    This piece is a beast to get lined up correctly, but the front windshields push the grill down ever so slightly, causing the hinge the grill is mounted on to rotate outward, as you see in the pic.

    My trick is to fold those in last, while applying pressure from the bottom of the bumper & that seems to alleviate most (but not all) of the problem.

    Don't real truck grills stick out a little like that? I don't think it's supposed to be perfectly flush but I could be wrong.

    The middle part is a bit misaligned (look at the line), tried to push it down but something behind is pushing it back.
