    You're very welcome; it's well deserved.

    As said, I was just kinda playing around in my free moments at work. What I'd like to end up doing is just basically make my own personal check list of sorts.

    He is not actually an MP. Too small.

    Until we see if TransArt listened to the requests to upscale it, it remains way too small to be considered MP scaled.

    Scale is hard when it comes to BW. Takara has official MP, but technically legends would scale better with G1 MP. But Takara put it int he MP line, so it's now MP scale lol!
    I never watched any BW, so for me I'm just listing options as I see them. I will keep an eye on BWM-05 and see if it is upscaled or not. Thanks for the feedback.

    Takara has Megatron MP-43, Jiang Xing has Transmetal 2 Megatron (JX-Metalbeast-01 Winged Dragon). This couple scales almost perfectly. So Optimal Optimus must be in scale with JX-01, but that one from Trans Art is defenetely undersized.

    Does Optimus (Bumblee Movie) MPM-12 have any alternative options?

    I heard one breaks easy, 3A is $400, anything else worth looking into?

    Yes, just look towards the end of my first post of the guide for the live action movies

    Potential substitute: Transformers Movie Toys TMT-?? (unreleased), Toy-Lab TL-01 Dark Knight (unreleased), ToyWorld TW-F09 Freedom Leader (Standard Version & Limited Version available. Released under the moniker "Tactics Waistcoat"), Trans-Craft T?? (unreleased), Wei Jiang M09 Commander Leader

    I have the ToyWorld one, the chest is a bit wonky to get tabbed in right, but it looks good (just don't transform it lol)

    Sounds like a party-

    HasLab, with the backing of multi billion dollar "woke" corporate war-chest, or the plucky but efficient, streamlined, third party company. Which one will have more flaws? higher quality? better durability?

    For Beast Machines Primal-
    Has anyone suggested 'Returns Convoy' from the TT Transformers Encore line? He would be out of scale, but he might be an acceptable substitute. EDIT: I keep looking at pictures and I just can't decide if he fits in or not. He sure has the MP price tag though, there's one on the shelf where I live for $175.

    For the unnamed Constructicon from Revenge of the Fallen-
    I saw somewhere that his name is Buckethead. If you search the name some stuff comes up but my computer doesn't want to load it at the moment.
