    WOW!

    I've certainly been mistransforming Ironhide up until this moment.

    I didn't realize that the part that spins his upper torso/arms/windshield around has to actually be PUSHED back into place when going back to truck mode!?!??!

    CHECK OUT THOSE FLUSH PANEL LINES NOW! (especially the top of the windshield and the shield)

    I wonder if these two will have any significant interaction when Earthrise hits Netflix.

    The spoiler text for NP implies some pretty meaty stakes.

    I think he got the sticker set from Toyhax, I'll most likely do the same. By the way, Sunstorm looks good next to the other Seekers!

    They did a Damn good job!!!!:bowdown:

    I'm currently looking for a suitable Roller for my ER Optimus Prime; This would be a bit of a stupid question, but for anyone who either owned the Jinbao or Hot Soldiers 3P (legends-scale) Optimus Prime...

    Would the Roller from either set works fine with ER Optimus Prime?

    I think a legends-scale Roller would be very tiny.
    It might look cute, being that small, but I don't think it would be in scale with Optimus or his trailer.

    I really like this one made by ZXB.

    20201120_004109.jpg

    It's got nice surface details, has three 5mm ports for accessories and, best of all, is built solid with a full undercarriage.
    In hand, Roller feels like a Hot Wheels car, which is exactly what I was wanting.

    20201120_004312.jpg

    The only down side is that ZXB's Roller is only available in silver, they don't make a blue version.

    I bought mine from TFSafari.com. Available here.

    Not sure, but if you don’t get responses here, you can try the 3p area and ask.

    Rough measurements:
    You need a width less than 5.5cm, height less than 2.75cm (to avoid potentially hitting the storage ports), and length less than 10cm (this one should not be the problem).

    We have other Rollers here, though. Of course, the official one in the Centurion pack fits and will store properly in the trailer by using the floor peg. It's also able to pull the trailer properly with its trailer hitch port.

    KBB MP10V trailer Roller and Fansproject G3 trailer Roller both FIT. The MP10V trailer has a straight forward mod where you could just use that as a replacement trailer set altogether.

    I'm aware of the Nonnef Roller although it appears quite oversized and out of place.

    For 3d printed Rollers, ZXB Roller is really good but inexplicably doesn't come with the trailer mount part (which comes in a separate sold out trailer accessories pack). It fits and can pull the trailer. Matrix Workshop Roller jetpack fits but definitely not recommended: doesn't work right out the box due to MW's total lack of QC on their pegs and ports.

    These are others we have that DO NOT FIT: MP10 Roller, MP10 KO NP-style Roller, and BTS trailer Roller. UW Roller figure will also not fit.

    Yours looks a little different than mine. The ports on mine weren't painted over.
