    I figured (s)he was trolling. Sad indeed. Nothing to add to the conversation, not moving this thread/forum forward. I know we catch people in stages and we never know where they are at in life. A rough patch or going through some difficult times. I wish them well and hope at some point they get through whatever it is they are dealing with.

    @Dean ML - I love those blast effects! They really are very emotive. I wish Megatron/decepticons had some of those purple blast effects. Any 3rd party or 3d printed ones out there that I don't know about?

    Nice to see that everyone is still enjoying their MP-44. I love it and can’t get enough of him.

    MP-44 may be the most visually satisfying to look at people's photos of Transformer ever made in my eyes. That is all, carry on.

    Finally got around to designing this bugger. Need to print, fit check, modify, and then they'll be ready to ship! Howling meteor will have a proper head!

    I would but not the foggiest idea of how to do it properly. Good work on this, though!

    Calipers to measure the diameter of the ball. I don’t have any, but someone here probably does.

    Anybody out there with calipers and an MP-11? :)

    Calipers?! ... I knew my two favorite subjects, TFs and phrenology, would cross-pollinate at some point in this timeline! :)

    Thank you! I agree these guys look great. Takara Tomy really outdoes themselves with each release they put out. I love how emotive these guys are. Especially with the added accessories they really put an emphasis on the situation you have placed them in.
