    I'm still just so pumped over the inclusion of the sign. It really really sets it apart from Ironworks and doesn't just feel like the same toy with different name and in different colors.

    At least they're better than Toyhax quality (which isn't that hard to do...even my homemade ones are better quality).

    Hey there everyone, I did have a question, hopefully someone can provide some comparisons. With the Back to the future crossover announcement coming anytime soon, I really want to put together my 80’s action team. With that said, does anyone have a picture of Earthrise Prime with Ectotron? I know the scale won’t be perfect by any means, but hopefully it doesn’t look too wonky in vehicle mode or robot modes. I guess what I want is a prime that look nice with the crossover figures, but I know I should just pick up this prime regardless according to some haha.

    Eh, Honestly dukes is the last in terms of how much I care for it. My main 3 I would be perfectly content with are Prime, Ecto-1, and the Delorean. Kitt would be a plus.

    Ectotron scales to MP figures, pretty sure he’s about the same height in bot mode as earthrise prime, if not taller

    MP44 should go best with Ectotron but...

    That should give you an idea just how far off their scale is.

    Unrelated, Micromasters with, or waiting for their bases.

    I know he's not in-scale but i still think ectotron looks great with the rest of the earthrise crew and his fellow scientist wheeljack!
