Dunno about where you are but here in UK I asked about upcoming releases while in Forbidden Planet yesterday and Long Haul was scheduled for 5th August except they've had him on the shelves for at least a couple of weeks already (since I bought mine there 2 weeks ago). Don't know about where you are. It's strange. I've never seen Rampage or Scrapmetal for sale in the store and barely online. Very limited stocks apparently.

Yep! I got these paintbrushes from Amazon a while ago, and they have these thin plastic covers that are the perfect diameter to fit on the existing smokestacks. So, I cut one in half and painted them silver, and they work great!

Went to the model shop where I normally buy paints and got me a couple brushes that had the plastic tube cover. So I'mma try that. Thanks for the idea. :D

Ok I done what you did. Looking at my photo now I think I made them a bit too long but I can always cut them down a bit later. Thanks again for the idea. The truck just looked so wrong with stumpy stacks. :P

Is it ok that simply just the new ab piece is what just made me order DotM Optimus just now off a UK ebay seller? I got a lil too excited even though I supposed to be saving monies. Oh well, I should have it in a few days. For now I better go Ziffit some books/dvds and ebay some stuff to recoup the cost. :P

Looks great, glad it worked for you!

Also, I’m sure it’ll be gone pretty quickly but Long Haul is currently in stock on Amazon.

I enjoy asking questions, and always have. Please take no personal offense when I do. It's not about justification, is about acquiring knowledge.

I am very much interested in Four of the Botcon 2016 Customization Class toys (Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet), willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

Honestly with SS, especially when it comes to exclusives, I'm not sure what *standard* pricing is, but I do know sites like BBTS tend to price hike, so it takes quite a significant price drop before they are actually what most would consider to be a *good deal*. I honestly wasn't sure with this one, just thought I'd throw it out there as a courtesy.

I had a look out of curiosity and yeah it's sold out. :P


ZeroWolf wrote:Nice can't wait to see your pics :D


Yeah I'm sorta half thinking I shouldn't have spend that much money (it's not a crazy price. About £52 including delivery for a Leader class set is very fair) for a figure I mostly already have. And it's the third time I'll have bought some version of that mold in just over a year or so. But yeah I wanna have a go at it. It's my birthday treat to myself (12th is my 40th... which feels all wrong cos I'm technically achieved much less than most 18 year olds due to my condition) cos nobody actually buys me presents anymore.

I'll put the tall smokestacks on for some of the truck mode pics to show what a difference it'll make to the overall look probably before any painting attempts. I'd like to paint the trailer silver but that's gonna be difficult for me to do well (since for a smooth job it'll probably require spraying and I can't do that here). I definitely want to paint the missing blue strips at top and bottom of the trailer though.

It's okay to treat yourself, as long as your not making yourself short for the necessities, then don't worry about it :)

I should be ok. But damn it's difficult even collecting a reasonable affordable line like Studio Series when not had a proper job in over 7 years due to health condition stuffs. I sell what I can and make a lil bit extra here and there but I'm mostly just on employment & support allowance. So I shouldn't reeeeally be buying 50 quid figures. :P My birthday itself is costing me over £200 in flying up to Edinburgh for one night (hotel is £80 by itself) to go support my friends in the drama group I'm in for their two productions they're doing all week up there. I couldn't afford to join them on stage for those ones. I just doing the home show stuff here in town. :)

But yeah no chance of Masterpiece Movie figures for me. :P

Hey happy early birthday Carnivius! Hang in there man remember, one step at a time, one day at a time. Aim for two to three things to get done in a day and if you don’t get those things done, it’ll be ok. My wife taught me that it totally helped me through my own tough times. You do deserve a treat here and there, it’s what makes it all worth it. Especially a Transformer on a birthday ;)

Till all are one pal, hope the support stuff goes well! ;)^

Thank you. Damn i wish i had a wife. Haven't even had a girlfriend during my entire 30's. A few false starts and that's all. Bit weird. But yeah I do my daily routines and try to push myself and there are some things I can do fine and others are like super difficult yet most folk do them without even a second thought. I'd like a new brain but I stuck with this gooey melted one. Never mind. I feel bit less bad about ordering DotM Prime today though. Not sure why. But I am looking forward to painting it up a bit and having both Jetwing and Jetpower Optimus at same time. Plus good ol' SS05 Optimus who has no jetpack but he's still a lovely dude in his own way. I'm in a very tired state today and that's ok.

Hope everyone's been having a nice week and enjoying Transformery toy things. :)

Been there. Nice to know I’m not alone. Not weird - don't hold yourself to some preset standards. You’re on your own path friend, and that includes Transformers, which automatically sets you at a high bar I mean come on now we can all agree on that :lol:

I still can’t believe they did Jetwing and the weapons ring. Studio Series mostly rocks it there’s a few misses but mostly I love em. I don’t particularly love this version of Prime but I love what they’re doing.

A DotM Shockwave better be on its way.

Thanks. Yeah I'd like a new Shockwave. The first toy was good but I'd like one a bit less flat, and more curved this time to do a better job of looking like the CGI model.

Just for funsies here's SS32 Prime in robot mode with the removable smoke stack extensions left on. I dunno why it amuses me. Plus this figure just poses so beautifully. I love this mold so why not own it again with a big trailer of guns and wings and stuff?

Transformers Studio Series 44 Leader Class Jetwing Optimus Prime Video Review

Postby Stargrave » Thu Aug 01, 2019 9:05 pm

Motto: "It’s all the in the reflexes"
Weapon: Glass Gas Gun
Thanks again to YouTuber PrimeVsPrime we have a video review of Transformers Studio Series 44 Leader Class Jetwing Optimus Prime! Yes, it's a fully loaded weapons ring, it's also a jetpack, and I believe the fine print in the instructions mentions something about a refrigerator and a full orchestra, but don't quote me on those last two.

Of note from PrimeVsPrime, " ...this figure (is) also improved upon the previous version, by adding pins to panels that previously popped off the SS 32 Optimus Prime."

Give PrimeVsPrime's review a whirl then swing back by here and share your thoughts with the Seibertron crew in the forums. As always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

The shield is a bummer, but that's really the only negative for me. I'm SO excited for this figure, I went out and bought the paint I'll need for it the other day. The extra weapons are ready to go, I have smokestacks, and the parts from SS-05 are painted up and ready to swap. I just have to decide whether I'll leave the dark gray on Prime as is or if I'll paint it silver. :-?

I just hope it arrives a little sooner than Pulse's estimate, otherwise I won't see it till Christmas.

Now I want the scene where the trailer transforms at the start of DOTM but instead of weapons all the Autobots fly out, instruments in hand.

I’m so glad they painted the abs section. I think they should have went with a lighter shade for the trailer if they weren’t gonna paint it. It’s such a contrast compared to Prime himself with the rims being a dark shade. I little blue paint for the running lights would have enhance the trailer considerably.

Cool review. Yay for pins in that backpack. One of mine came kept coming off quite easily til I tightened the joint with some nail polish but pins are better.
My order update says "We estimate that delivery will be made on 03-08-2019, between 09:42 and 12:42" so that's nice.
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! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron

I’ve always wondered about using materials to tighten pins I’m worried about melting the plastic how do you do that Carnivius?

Dunno about tightening the pins themselves (the SS32 doesn't have pins where the DotM has added them) but yeah applying a very thin layer of clear nail polish or (if you're VERY careful) superglue in where a joint moves adds a nice extra bit of friction to stop joint being loose. Works great on balljoints too. Also some kinds of joints like that SS32 Prime bit (or on SS01 Bumblebee's roof joint before they put the pin in the later Clunker release) can be heated up easily with a hairdryer to soften the plastic then squeeze those parts tighter around the joint so where they cool and harden again they're a tighter fit than before. If that makes sense. I'm terrible at trying to explain things in words. :/
