    This warms my heart. Going to be a few more years before I can do this. By then, we just might have a Masterpiece line for all of the season 1 cast. Better start saving now ahaha.

    It's a pretty sweet looking bot-mode.

    Not too bad.
    The beast mode face reminds me a bit of that third party Optimal Optimus' beast head.

    Thanks, I initially had them on a smaller shelf but as I got more of the team that shelf quickly ran out of space haha, hard to believe I’ve been wanting this team since 01 and only ever had a few members till within the last month or two

    No, no, no, "F" no. that beast mode has an extra chromosome. Ditch the beast mode cannons and I'm on board, but if not.... provided that their is a figure, I'll buy one to soak in gasoline and then light the plastic puddle!

    The designers behind F2F and Earth Wars have been doing some interesting things with Optimus Primal, that's for sure. Both include cannons on the beast-mode back. A miscommunication with reference material supplied by Hasbro?

    Eh while I’m ok with arcee being predominantly black thanks to combiner hunters I don’t really think armada cheetor looks medic enough to be a CatSCAN Fillin

    Oh. OH! I thought we were talking about Catalysm. Yeah, Catscan is actually super cheap. I got mine in the box for $30. Just keep an eye out.

    Hi all, I won a bid on eBay around 2 weeks ago, got this guy for €19 shipped, absolutely delighted with it and I feel like I should open him but I kind of like the box :rolleyes:

    Much like Star Wars figures, you will get more joy from him if you leave him in the box. That figure is... bad. really bad.

    It was a big day for Optimus Primal yesterday, and good signs for BW fans in general.

    I remember picking up the the Henkei Cheetor despite the fact that I already had the Universe version and thought it was awful, and honestly didn't much care for what Takara had done to their version with that chrome. It was just so cheap though, I couldn't resist.
