    The unknown company is potentially the best one. But or the engineering should be amazing since other 2 3rd parties are failing in having good legs and small wheels in the shoulders (fake wheels?) or it is a non transforming one

    Lol! That's great, awesome work, thanks @Cheem The Rup!

    Ah, phooey.:(  Thanks for the pic though.:cool: 

    Really, any 3P are already much better than HasTak version, you can't go wrong with choosing either of those 3. But yes, the 3rd unknown one is so far leading the pack.

    Thanks for all this. Given the choice I think I'm more into the Zeta proportions.

    This guy does look nice. Although what’s with the 5mm peg hole fists he looks more like a mainline figure. Honestly? I’d be pretty happy with that. Since I don’t like the offical at all.

    Assuming those are 5mm holes in his hands, it seems like it will be somewhere between deluxe and voyager sized. I might have even made the SS figure bigger a little too big in this mockup, but I was trying to scale it out based on the hands:

    Looks pretty good, but I'll need any MPM scale...

    Well if it’s around that size it shouldn’t be too bad next to Optimus.

    Looking good. Again, I like the proportions on him here better than the movie.

    Looks even better here. I cleaned up the photo a tiny bit just by adjusting the levels (and adding the missing bumper piece on his right side), I might color it up unless someone beats me to it:

    Now why can't Hasbro's deluxes look like that??

    Price this guy reasonably (around $30, like Hot Soldiers' deluxe-size Hearts of Steel Bumblebee), and I'm in.

    Here's my attempt:

    It's funny, next to the 3A version all its inaccuracies stand out, but next to the Studio Series version it looks pretty flawless.

    For some reason his pose in this picture makes me think he's going to break out into a little dance like that scene where Charlie starts putting tapes in him. Just me?

    Thanks for the digibash. Even though it's looking increasingly unlikely this'll be MPM scale, it still looks like it'll be a fun figure, it just seems to have character despite the chunkyness.
