    Seeing some comparison pictures of the underside of both the MPM and the Leader, I have concluded that the difference is rather negligible and is more than made up for it with the brilliant robot mode. The more I look at it, the more I fall in love! It seems like each new MPM ends up being my favorite haha As others have mentioned, I do hope the paint apps are fixed for the release. The MPM's haven't been perfect in the paint department lol

    All in all, I'm very pleased with the results. They checked off three of my 4 major points: integrated back thrusters, accurate sunken cockpit in chest, and correct wing configuration. The only major thing for me was the lack of a clean undercarriage. Oh, and do you all think the 11 inches tall refers to the top of the head or wings? If it's the head, maybe it's when the legs are fully extended? I think he should be closer to 10.5 inches/26.5 cm.

    Also, for Ratchet, what do you all think are the chances he is released in the 4th quarter of this year? I'm not familiar with how and when Transformers are released, but I did see that none of the release dates for the figures in the image at the top of this page are in the 4th quarter. I hate the idea of having only 1 MPM per year!

    By the way, now that Ratchet is the only rumored MPM left to be revealed, I wonder when we will get a rumor for the next batch... I'm personally hoping for Brawl and Bonecrusher.

    Ratchet could absolutely be a Q4 release.
    Last year we had Megatron in Q3 and Jazz in Q4.

    Actually I think he should be a bit taller than that...screamer is 31’ whereas prime is only 28’

    Weird that he’s a littler short, they’ve been spot on with the bigger bots so far.

    I figured since he's a tad closer to Prime than Megatron, he shouldnt be 11 inches.

    I have OS Prime, ironhide and megatron to keep a more accurate scale. My optimus is just about 11” (BMB KO) so an Oversized Starscream may not be needed. We’ll see how big he really is.

    Not gonna lie, I’d be kinda upset if Ratchet came with missiles that he didn’t have in the films, yet screamer, bee, prime, and barricade are all missing weapons they DID use in the films....

    Well, that could be fake either way.
    As far as i know ratchet doesn't have a missile launcher gun or something like that.
    Starscream doesn't lack any weapons though, (at least the ones he used in the films)

    maybe the missile is a misinterpretation of his laser weapon? he uses it on bumblebee and has it drawn when S7 arrives

    could be a fake leak too

    Screamer isn’t missing anything, and technically if you’re only going by the first film then bee is only missing the missile pods and no one else is missing anything.

    BRAWL... I freaking knew I forgot someone! MPM YES PLEASE! The Decepticons had epic scenes in the 1st movie, all of them memorable for me. Brawl was bad ass, complete the 2007 cast!

    Hell the Decepticons stole the show for me more in the 2007 movie compared to the Autobots.
