    It's been a while since I last got so many TFs at once! Funny thing is, I didn't even notice that they are all Primes/Convoys except for one!

    -Superlink Grand Convoy / Microman Kicker set -- Thanks Elvin!
    -Grand Convoy Pla-Kit
    -THS-02 Convoy -- man I love this little guy!
    -Alternators Prime -- A real QC nightmare
    -Reissue Blaster/Steeljaw -- Awesome reissue!

    Because a Ram SRT-10 uses the Viper engine, it's basically a Viper in a pick-up truck body.

    So jealous (but my wallet isn't!).

    Out of curiousity, what's the Grand Convoy Pla-kit? Or any pla-kit for that matter?

    Pla-Kits are snap-on models. You assemble them, then paint them, similar to Gundam models. I got it for $10 CAN and it looks like it's gonna be a fun project to do

    Ah, so they are supposed to be snap-together only? Not being able to read any Japanese (yet!), I wasn't sure if glue was required or not. (Just got a Pla-Kit Grand Scourge this week.)

    Wrong, you don't have to paint them at all. They come with stickers. I know because Pla-Kit Convoy is sitting right in front of me. And it transforms just like the real thing. Almost.

    Well, sure, you don't have to. But some details would look better if painted, IMO -- such as the drill tank's drill, some of the chest details, etc. And I think the likelihood of the face looking great if done with the stickers is somewhat low.

    Except for the tip of the drill and the red on the matrix, I don't see anything else to paint. The sticker on the face is pain to apply, but once done, it looks nice.
