    What are the general thoughts on the MP Road Rage? I’d like a Road Rage to pair with my TR Nautica and I’m not at all enthused about the Kingdom Tracks mold. I think the size difference would probablt be fine considering she’s Nautica’s bodyguard.

    I hope @OptimusTimelord doesn't mind but I saw this post in the stop motion thread and I had to share here. I think it's awesome that he did some scenes from the comics and that issue 5 cover animation is amazing!

    That is amazing. I love his cartoon stuff, but that's just on another level. The first time we've seen badass comic shockwave come to life. Brilliant. I hope he does some more. How amazing would the Trevor Senior Magnus Galvatron fight from target 2006 be.

    That's awesome, well done!

    I'm rewatching G1 on Tubi and their banter/relationship is one of the best aspects of that show, lol.

    Other than the eye being a little too big and the coloration being a little too light, I really like the first rendition of Shockwave.

    I made some shoulder decals for MP-30 Ratchet so you don't have to cut up the original sheet AND to make the alt mode a little bit more show accurate.

    I think mp28 is closer to being "right"than people want to give credit. Unfortunately if they had set on it, and released it now they would have been able to round off his legs arms better and soften some of his bot lines, he's much too angular and lean in comparison to Starscream and Arcee.

    For its time and even now it poses pretty well. Not a fan of the proportions nor loose arm on my copy but love how poseable it is. To me, it was almost a beginning step more towards articulation on the level of figures that couldn’t transform, yet this one could.

    I agree...not to anger anyone who loves SS86 Hot Rod (which I think seems like a great toy, don't get me wrong), but I think that while that figure has generically "nice" proportions the specific shapes also don't look particularly "Hot Rod" to me (especially in the hips, feet, and arms), while MP-28's do. Then of course there's the fact that SS is covered in greebles, meh face sculpt, and that alt mode...MP-28 is surprisingly close to great, it's just that its shortcomings are glaringly obvious :lol

    I guess they were pretty specific about what they wanted out of the altmode which is why I think the bottom half seems out of synch with the top. He has the wide chest and it turns into a way too skinny waist and thighs. I think if we get a 2.0 they'll alter some things in the altmode to accommodate a fuller waist and legs and of course taper his chest better.

    I don't think we'll see a new Hot Rod anytime soon, but I am still hoping for a Rodimus Prime v2. Now is the perfect time for him, with the 35th anniversary of The Movie. Come on TT, do it!
