    Those are some very cool, very well done reimaginings.

    And a little MP Cheetor because it's one of the best toys ever:

    Hey everyone. Yesterday was a great day for my collection. I finally obtained the Botcon '97 Fractyl and Packrat. They were the last two figures I needed to finish my collection. I have a few pretty neat pieces on the way to add to my Cheetor collection, which I'll post in a few days if everything goes well, but other than that the only figures I have to work on are those coming out in the future. I can finally stop spamming ebay every ten seconds for figures to pop up.

    All of the Botcon 96-99 figures. The '97 and '98 sets were the hardest for me to find.

    Side note, I finally got a Scissor Boy about a week ago completing the BWII set. I can't believe how insanely hard it was to find that little guy.

    I just use an old Powerpinch, given they're identical toys.

    I did the same. I had a large order coming from taobao and someone had one listed for a decent price and it didn't increase shipping. The only difference is the sticker I believe. Which you can't ever see any way. It's just one of those little things that always bugged me.

    Yes, I posted my collection about a month ago now, I think. At that time Fractyl, Packrat, Scissor Boy, and 19? I think Beast machines figures were all I was missing. I have since obtained them all except Hammerstrike, and the repaints of Mol, Dillo, and Rav. I think I've found someone on the boards to get Hammerstrike from and I can get the deployers any time, I'm just not in a huge hurry to do so.

    You need to somehow shove one of those flame effect parts into Inferno's abdomen thrusters. I don't know if it'll look awesome or stupid but it surely must happen. :lol

    Just tried as it seemed like a cool idea. Sadly it won't work out.

    If there's room for only one Cheetor in my life, it's this one.

    It's a nice figure, but I honestly despise that head sculpt. The mouth looks so ridiculous. If they re released this figure with a new head and better paint apps, totally would rebuy it.

    Just managed to complete a set of Autorollers.

    ...kinda. Truth be told, two of them are the originals, while the other are two Landfill components I repainted the heads and minor details of.

    Really happy with how those two turned out, even if the changes are minimal.

    They can now terrorize my almost-complete set of Insectrons.

    Screw you, Drill Nuts, I don't want to spend $40 on a basic.

    I also need Bigmos but he's much easier to acquire.
