    Dope. The hips and knees have ratchets in both directions right? That’s the biggest issue I wanted fixed on the original

    They indeed do.

    The originals only have ratchets one way? How does that work?

    Well, they have them both ways but they’re very gummy forward and back. So they’re not very helpful

    Exactly, Megatron is 35’, optimus is 28’. He needs to be about half an inch taller.

    Then you might want to take a look at the BmB version. It's about 37cm.

    He came in today and overall, awesome figure, definitely prefer him over the honey badger one. Joints are really tight and stable! Paint is excellent since there’s a nice wash of silvers, grays, golds and some blacks that make a good representation of the movie character. The gold also isn’t that overwhelming irl, it looks really good. No metal anywhere, which could be a good or bad thing depending on your preference, but it makes him feel a little lighter than I’d hoped for. Plastic is good, not as sturdy feeling as something like the LT Prime or the BA Prime, but still good quality. The plastic itself feels a bit weird, but not necessarily in a bad way, when I touch him he feels dusty and a bit rough when he actually isn’t. Only problems I have with him are that he doesn’t have any diciest, which isn’t a big deal, and that the pegs for his gun are a bit too loose on his right hand so it comes out a bit easily. $80 is a steal for this figure.

    Honestly, everything feels good. The only part that does scare me is the outward arm articulation. The joint is tight, which is a good thing, but I'm worried I might sheer the arm right off the shoulder. I highly doubt it would actually happen but I thought I would note it just in case. Overall it feels really sturdy

    So what's the consensus on this guy? Is he better than BMB's?

    Nobody really has the BMB one so I don't know how anybody can really judge
