    Dude. Duuude. Duuuuuuuuuude. That ROCKS!

    If it's not too time-consuming, and you have them available, I'd love to see more MPs get this treatment. It's what I'd love to see in the movies.

    I have to say that Wheelie looks damn good. I'd love an official one, though.

    I really dig Ollie, a few issues but aesthetically and scale wise he is perfection. Opposite ends of the scale:

    I think MP21 is roughly the same size (maybe a touch bigger), that is gonna look awesome.

    King Grimlock Takara Transformation Help

    Hey guys, I am new to MP transformers. I LOVE the MP Prowl and King Grimlock I have. Ghost Starscream is okay but when I transform him or move him around a lot something always seems to be falling off :eek: ... So my only issue with King Grimlock MP 08x is I really can't figure out the transformation. My boyfriend did it for me and I still cant figure it out... That is robot to alt mode.. turning him back into a robot is still hard but atleast do able. Does anyone have any tips or videos they know of how to learn his transformation? Also I am wondering if his knee joints are supposed to bend, my boyfriend was bending them but it required a lot of force and loud clicks were made but I am really worried the plastic is being stressed when doing this. He is kind of laying in his throne his legs aren't really bent well... which btw the throne was a major let down LOL. It looks great until you get up close and see what is actually going on.. (hollow plastic pieces)


    Thanks guy> Appreciate any help I can get with my Grimlock. BTW he is freaking HUGE... biggest transformer I have ATM

    I think this video review by Optibotimus will help you. He transforms Grimlock both ways: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-aMw2k6WLI

    Nice shots, Shogen. For the first time in my life...I'm actually tempted to pick up a Wheelie!

    Diggin' the "Opposite Ends" idea, TigerBlade. Holy crap, Kronos is huge!

    I shared this one in Cool Stuff, but this is the thread I REALLY like to party in :D  Here's me finally getting to do a "Jet Judo" pic!

    Have fun, gang!

    May be a dumb question but how does MP Hot Rod/Rodimus scale with MP-10 and up?

    This post should help you a little bit. Long story short: He matches beautifully with Optimus as Rodimus, but people are on the fence about him as Hot Rod.

    Hope that helps.

    Have fun!

    As Rodimus he is perfect:

    As Hot Rod he is arguably too big....some say he should be around a head taller than the MP cars, some say the Movie/s3 depict him as being literally the same size as Roddy. Down to preference really.

    No problem. That was an easy one :D 

    Thanks, all. That's really appreciated.

    Nordh, I think, if you just click on the pic, it'll take you to my Flickr account, giving you the ability to download a bunch of different sizes. But hey, if not, click here.

    Have fun, gang!

    Not quite up to the standard of Optimus Timelord, but most certainly inspired by him!

    I just received my MP Offshoot in the mail. He looks great, but I'm having an issue transforming his legs. It seems like the lower parts do not fit into the top when folding them up to form the blaster. Anyone have a similar experience or ideas?
