    You've seen Studio Series. MPM hasn't ventured past movie 1.

    I see a few hating of the Prowl mold and I just don't see it, it looks great to me. The huge "feet" can be tilted and heel closed so they can have roller skating feet for fast mouvement/action and having larger feet helps them balance.

    I don't think the feet look large. DoTM Skids/Mudflap have MASSIVE feet.

    Making a Siege Barricade was an awesome choice, and I would love to see more movieverse original characters get put into CHUG/WfC.

    It's been established that he meant the SS, no need for the hostility.

    You funny. Make a slip in identification of a figure category and someone becomes a bitch? Pull your knickers out and read the responses since then.

    Sure is, that's part of the reason why I like him though. I do like the more humanoid designs of past transformers incarnations, but I also love these wild bayverse designs. It really grounds in the idea of "alien robot" and it's just cool to me

    I really like tfcc counterpunch, even if he's one half of a whole, that just means I can display both punch and counterpunch at the same time without wasting alot of money on two tfcc punchcounterpunch's or two potp punch counterpunches. speaking of..I need to get a potp punch counterpunch...even if he's a pain to get on the aftermarket

    Honestly, if he had a face more close to his '09 Leader, rather than his current one, I think he'd look better. IDK what exactly it is about it, maybe the exposed mouth?

    There are some designs, like hotrod, if he had more generation 1 head, or jazz had that and hands, I'd look at differently. One would figure alien design wouldn't be so visually busy. And naming convention is...off putting.

    If you don't at least melt down 1 entire bootleg fig, you ain't living life right.

    The only good thing about that figure is that it makes it easy for those who use CW Wheeljack to make a CW Slicer.

    I don't get some people's obession with complex figures that take hours to transform, It's just not my thing, I like simple shit, to the point of that ss-32 optimus being a confusing mess the first time.

    I like to complexity when it makes sense. I love seeing how much, say, ROTF Prime, moves around and see where everything winds up in one mode from another. I love the engineering aspect of these figures and seeing how much they can do The likes of MP-44, however, with a bloatedly complex transformation feel complex for the sake of parts-count, rather than to genuinely and intuitively translate the on-screen models. The Magic Square and Transform Element do that much better with many fewer steps.

    I never transform my transformers unless they're combiners or they have beast mode.
