      I love the lighting on your figure shoot. And you live in Iceland? Man, I always wanted to visit the Blue Lagoon. Anyhow, keep up the good work.

      And apologies if I was one of the critics you were thinking of at the end! :o I respect your work/articles a lot, and hope my criticisms come off as more constructive than bashing. I really didn't realize you were a writer BEFORE a photographer. Your photography is so impressive, I just assumed you tossed some words to go with your pretty pictures! lol Big kudos! :)

      Cheers, mate!

        No offence taken at all and I genuinely appreciate the time you have taken to give me feedback and to post such kind words here! Haha it is completely the other way around, the pictures were always snapped in order to throw some appeal into my writing and break things up!

      Great article ("What Have Transformers Done For Me?")! Very inspiring and interesting piece. Too many career articles speak in cliched abstracts and hyperbole, but you actually concretely connected your points with specific things/events/careers! Kudos for that!

      Yeah,I think everyone knows that already. You're like the Transformers oracle. I only visit those sites for your articles. That whole KO silverstreak (or whoever it was) that sold for thousands of dollars, only to found out as a fake was like reading a Sherlock Holmes story man, great stuff! Very exciting.

      Thanks for all the great articles at TF-1. Just found it recently and been reading a heap of stuff on there. Well written, well researched, the best Tformers blog/fansite this side of Iacon.

      I saw that alphatron creep is on your friends list. Take him off.

      He targets female (or supposedly female) users, prying into their personal info and trying to hook up with them. He came after me once (even though I'm not female) and tried guilt tripping me into adding him onto his friend list. I managed to stop him, but I went through his VMs and a lot of the convos he has with other users are pretty invasive.

      He's banned right now, but he'll probably be back. Just avoid him.

      Heya Maz I've been watching the works of Golby II for a while now and I'm really impressed with the imagination and originality of her style.

      The idea of a commissioned work of Optimus vs Malingus original artwork has been a dream of mine for a while, but I have been afraid of taking the initial steps to get things rolling.

      I want this artwork too be shared and admired by the fellow minibot community and was wondering if you would like too have some creative input, and/or be a liason between the artist.

      I will finance the entire project and I want to get creative input from others.So far I think a melee battle scene where Optimus Bumblebee is fighting Malingus Brawn , where both insiginas are shown.

      This type of artwork would be invaluable to the history of the TFs, I'm in the same boat as you as not being a minibot collector per se but be a great way too have memories of collecting these toys.

      Hey, thanks. Funny thing is that I loved Wing Saber from the Superlink days, and of course he borrowed design elements from Star Saber. I don't have any real affinity with Victory (watched a few episodes), so I know that nostalgia/sentimentality isn't a factor here.

      I'm really most interested in him because of his size and apparent 'play' value - I find that I'm hesitant to interact with most of my MP's and 3P equivalents for various reasons, be it weight for the larger items (Dibots), or fragility and 'fiddliness' for some of the others.

      Star Saber just looks like fun. You've definitely given me something to think about. Thanks again.

      Hey Maz, did you ever get MP Star Saber? If so, did you review as well? Now that the hype has died down I'm thinking of picking him up, but would appreciate your thoughts on him.

      Maz,
      You've been an incredible resource to me in the past..hoping you can help.

      I recently purchased an AFA 85 Q METAL PLATES Optimus Prime for 2K, only to find that the cab did NOT have square pegged smokestacks, they are round pegged.

      I sent the toy to AFA to investigate and they (after having a "senior" grader look at it) SWEAR the round smokestacks cab, COULD be a variation with the Metal Plates trailer.

      My question is....did I get screwed, or is this TRULY a legit variation?

      I have asked that AFA photo the contents to ensure that they are the correct BLOATED style, with grey missiles, and that EVERYTHING is factory NEW still on the plastic trees inside.

      Any thoughts on this?

      PS, the AFA LABEL specifically says, "Metal Plates" Optimus Prime on the 85 Q. I have a picture to back that up if you or anyone needs it.

      The toy is currently "under investigation" at AFA.

      thanks, -Ben
