    Amazing, I still can't believe the depth of the knee bend. And I certainly could be forgetting one, but has any other MP had a separate toe flex joint?!

    I'm afraid to think of what the next Prime and that level of engineering will look like. However, I'm really excited to see that level of execution applied toward future MPs and V2s. At the very least, the human figures should have eyes and improved joints. Maybe even be made of some type of metal compound.

    Yes, a remarkable figure indeed and obviously my favorite! As far as a toe flex, am I wrong in remembering that MP-10 had it? Not sure, it's been a few months since I sold him on. Never had MP-1 or any of the BW MPs or MPMs, so not sure if there's a toe flex in any of those figures either.

    Oh good point, the previous Optimi do seem like likely candidates...I can't remember for MP-10 either.

    Hello guys, this is my first post ever and I just had to come on here and say that Dark Awakening photo sequence is just awesome. Awesome job Dean ML. Also like to add how much I am enjoying MP-44 just like all of you.
    Well just wanted to add my two cents and please don't be too hard on a newcomer to the boards. 20190927_134219.jpg

    Hey folks, I did a couple of OP vs Megatron pics for the #sevendaysofprime event that's been going on over on Instagram. I'm sure you'll get the loose references!

    Amazing pictures guys. MP 44 is truly a marvel.

    I know I have said this a lot, but MP Galvatron is going to be insane. Think about it, it is the ONLY MP leader that has not been done at all. That MF is going to be an event on itself.

    Custom head? Did you switch out the round head helmet with the s2 face? I'd keep mine like this all the time if it sat well in it, but I can't fully close the connection.

    Thanks everyone for making me feel welcome, you guys are awesome. Now to answer your question RichP, yes I used the season 2 face and mouth plate with the season 1 head. It did require some minor modifying to let the helmet to close flush. I did this quite a while back so I would have to take it apart to see exactly what I modified to make it work. I would not suggest it unless you have some experience modding and are comfortable doing so.

    I used the camera off of my Samsung Galaxy, it's not a real new or fancy phone, but I used the flash on it and that seems to help me get clearer pictures as opposed to having the flash turned off. Hope this helps answer your question.
