    first time I saw one IRL I was also amazed ny how small it actually was, for what is is, what it does and what it costs

    as for the figure Drift, I already found him to be small in bot mode, I would have liked him to be bigger.
    for me, the altmode scale is more important than bot mode.

    Peru Kill made me think “wow bayverse is actually possible in toy form!”

    LA Hire made me think “wow 3P can do even better than Hasbro!”

    Red Dasher made me think “they’ve really perfected these.”

    Now Red Destroyer is making me think “they can do fucking ANYthing.”

    Honestly, from the moment i saw Dragoon, how incredibly clean it was AND how amazing the jet mode looked, i knew unique toys can do anything. And ofcourse after nero. I still have no idea how they made those 2. Very happy they are doing stinger he is my favorite bayverse design. I’m hoping that they’re gonna do a DOTM Bumblebee with the unique toys perfectionism.

    Their toys truly are unique lol. They'll even do controversial characters (twins). In my eyes they're rivaled only by MG.

    Everyone’s thinking it’s black magic instead of the work of a 4th dimensional being until UT makes a Laserbeak that turns into a pink Bumblebee in 70 steps.

    Stinger here has some weird stuff going on with the sculpt that I noticed. The panels making up the sides of his torso have really shallow basic detailing, and his chest is weirdly spaced out with some detail either missing or being wrong.

    Honestly it’s a bit odd, the limbs and crotch have a crap Ton of well sculpted details but then the chest and sides suddenly get really wonky.

    imop, la hire, haiku, and dragoon are the pinnacle of what mpm should stride for, with KoK, nero and desperado following closely behind

    idk how i’d rank all the current MPM offerings but for me Desperado is UT’s masterpiece. probably unbeatable for me ever in terms of bot mode shelf presence. looks beautiful, poses dynamically enough for the design, extremely well made and painted, kind of in a league of its own with FT Roadking for me.

    I honestly think Nero has been UT's best so far. The fact that they were able to make that design work so beautifully is astounding and I hope that magic is in Stinger.

    Nero and Desperado are UT best figures so far, Dragoon is also amazing

    I agree there amazing figures and there rather simple transformations Hoping they do 2.0s of aoe Prime and Lockdown there great figures for there time but I’m sure if ut did 2.0s of them they would be the best on the market

    Wonder how this will go alongside the KO Nero in each mode? I had the original and then sold it once I got the OS with the original intention of having similar sized Megs from each Movie together. But since these guys are expanding the roster I may have made an error in switching over :lol

    Why do you want Galvatron to be the same size as Megatron?

    the KO is way too big, in both modes.
    I also bought the KO, but held on to the original.
    I ended up selling the KO

    I like to think of this Stinger as the Nemesis Bumblebee.

    I hope the transformation is as fun as red dasher. I'm really curious what UT could do outside of the bayverse.

    They have done non-bayverse stuff. But their talents are needed here.
