For whomever it concerns or was curious here is how the posability of BB optimus compaires to Siege in a few areas, note bicep, thigh and wrist rotation was omitted do to them all being 360 swivel joints

Image stock pose
Image
Waist rotation, siege can do a 360Imagelimit of forward hip movement and knee bendImageoutward Hip movement, Imagebackwords hip movement and knee bend again Imageankle rocker limit and what ever that thing is where they pose with their first punching each other infront of them Imagechest doors open pose
Imageslight neck rotation my copy of BB optimus' neck moves upwards at that point do to the neck molding Image upper neck movement both necks can theoretically do a 360 side to side rotation so it was omitted,
Image upper shoulder and elbow bend limitations on both figuresImage approximation of a two handed gun holding pose
BBOP appears to be more able to do such a pose despite limitations of articulation Image
Dynamic running pose

So far which is better is if you prefer dynamics pose options do to weight distributions or articulation options

Target is rumored to get it in the US, but there is no listing yet. However, we now know that it will be a Toysrus exclusive in Canada thanks to a listing that just popped up. It will be $40 CAD, the same price as non exclusive leaders, meaning a price point of $30 USD if it comes to the US. It can be preordered right now and will ship out August 2019. You can see the official images below which give us a really good look at the deco in tank mode.

While this toy only ships within Canada (including Quebec, yay!), it is possible for people outside Canada to ship it to their address though a shipping forwarding service (as it is for any item that doesn't ship to your country).


That's a good news. I want to buy him and I probably will. Unfortunately, it mean that my original SS ROTF Megs will have to be sold for dirt cheap. My evil side would like to make a toy-swap, but I'm against the principle.

O no, I didn't mean it like that. :)

With your correction, it only shows even more that the costs per year for Devastator is really lopsided in favor of 2020. Not quite fair I'd say.

only if you forgo getting the Takara tomy version of Scrapmetal who releases in a couple months


Which is odd... unless Hasbro goofed with printing the release date. The numbering seems in favor for a 2019 release. In order:

37 Constructicon Rampage
41 Constructicon Scrapmetal
42 Constructicon Long Haul
47 Constructicon Hightower

Costs are still lopsided :lol:

Well i can admit when I am wrong, seems Fc203 on Tfw2005.com has found scrapmetal at retail in Texas https://www.tfw2005.com/boards/threads/ ... l.1170308/

Nah, that's been overdone by other robot stuffs and doesn't have the agility. I wasn't too keen on Rampage at first but I've really warmed to him. I do kinda wish the lower half could split into pincery leg things like on previous figures of him but I quite like this one too. Devastator is gonna be a costly project but damn he does look pretty awesome all combined and I ain't even a fan of combiners (though I do love how RotF Devs makes a lot more sense structurally than most)

SS Jetfire and the Starscreams really are my fave jetformers ever made. I love their unique robot modes a lot but also their jet modes are pretty gorgeous and relatively kibble free (ignoring Jetfire's whiskers) and they transform beautifully too and securely.
DSC_0891.jpg

DSC_0890.jpg

Weird thing. Day after i took these photos, the RotF Starscream had fallen down (his stand is a lil weak, i should swap it out for one of my spares) but had landed on the floor still with the stand on bottom holding him up in jet mode). Very odd and kinda cool.

Again I love 5mm weapon compatibility. Jetpower Prime wielding G1 Powermaster Optimus Prime's black guns. :) I sometimes use G1 Starscream missile launchers (no missiles though) on the SS Starscreams too.
DSC_0881.jpg


Annoyingly my G1 Powermaster Optimus Prime has succumbed to the dreaded trailer post breakage but I've managed to push the broken post far into Prime himself (as there was space to do so and I couldn't get it out) and sliced a 5mm post of a Wolfwire gun (from a half-assed Carnivac repaint) cos similar size and colour that I've superglued onto the trailer's bit. It fits well enough that it stays hitched on the shelf in truck mode but not too tight that it would break off again. Frustrating this happens now just as I made an eBay auction to sell the figure after 30 years. Have removed the eBay auction for now and will rewrite it later on mentioning the repair job i had to do. :/
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Awesome paint on that Optimus! Can I ask what paint you used? I can’t wait to start painting my DOTM Optimus when I finally get him.

Also, wave 6 is at retail now?! I haven’t even seen wave 5 in-person yet. Hoping to pick up Sideswipe and Megatron soon, though.

Thanks. Is a lil rough in places due to anxiety-related shakey wrists but since I like my movie bots to look a bit worn that works well for me and deliberately add a bit of silver to some of the edges to give it that worn metal look too like they often have in the films. I used Tamiya gloss model paints. On past paintings I had to use matte paints for general coloured areas that weren't silver or gold or something cos that's all there was available locally to me but they've got the range of gloss paints in now which are so much better so I grabbed those for Prime here so his red and blue were shiny (though matching the blue has been tricky so have left some of those areas the original plastic colour). The flames aren't painted on as I can't do those and so they're just using the SS05 Toyhax stickers as placeholders until they do a SS32 set (one of the chest ones went wonky on the pic of Jetpower Prime above cos it's stickiness ain't so great since I peeled it off my SS05)
Here's Prime without the Jetfire parts.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Enjoy your Transformers. :)

Will be cool to see your DotM Prime later in the year. :)

Well I have 38 Optimus Prime (From the BBB movie) preordered from Amazon, and SS Clunker Bumblebee should be showing up on Monday. The original 2007 Clunker Bumblebee was the very first Transformer I ever saw, so it's kind of a must for me. (I know, feel old feel old.) :twisted: I hope Toyhax has a reprolabels set for him to give him the blue windows to hide the robot parts, and also some yellow stickers for his arm cannon and belly. (And maybe his thighs.)
