    As much as a beefier (but still deluxe) Orion Pax would have been nice, this dude(s) needed to be no smaller than Voyager. Looking at a photo of him is great, because he does manage to exude some menace, but it hand and particularly stood next to other bots he just looks...wrong. Real pity, becasue in every other respect I think this is a great mold.

    Someone did remark on how slim and hollow some of the T:30 deluxes were, and these two are definitely guilty of that. None the less, I still really enjoyed this mold. It's been my CHUG starscream for years now, and will probably only get usurped by the PotP Voyager Starscream. Jhiaxus is obviously a massive compromise, but he's still an incredibly obscure character so hoping for anything more than a, at best, semi-appropriate repaint is more than a bit optimistic. Ultimately I'm grateful I have a Jhiaxus at all.

    Here's the last of my T:30 snaps. Loved these two and thought it was a far superior Trailbreaker than the Combiner wars version. While I didn't feel they suffered from being too hollow, or slender in profile, they both feel like they could have benefitted from being a bit taller and chunkier. Imagine these two around the same sort of size and heft as Twintwist/Topspin. I'm sure many would disagree, but Voyager would be too big for these lads.

    Couple more CONS join the ranks.
    Some modern and old timey insecticons, and Megatron better watch his back... Nemesis Prime / Power Master Black Convoy is their new secret weapon in their war with the Autofools.

    Man Hasbro it'd be swell if you did a deluxe class Repugnus instead we have to deal with that Titan Master. Yeah until they give us a deluxe Repugnus (very unlikely) I guess I'll just pick up the Titan Master to act as a stand in. Still these two look really good together.

    They will. It's just probably gonna be a while. I can already see them taking that new Rippersnapper mold and making a Repugnus out of it.

    Time for another Dr. Wu review!

    20171008_071351[1].jpg

    I do dig the new version of Dr. Wu Prime Sword. The clear blue plastic looks wonderful on it and the silver paint is beautiful. I don't miss the die cast from the previous releases at all to be honest since the simple plastic does a more efficient job and the weight of the last few versions worked against them at times. I particularly like how it looks in Generations Springer, is a nice fit for him since in the old comics it has always been hinted that he was going to be one of the future owners of the Matrix of Leadership and the connection becomes even more obvious if you've read the recent Sins of the Wreckers series. Plus, let's be honest, as Nick Roche portrays him he would most likely be a better leader of the Autobots than Rodimus in the IDW comics (Hell, probably even better than Optimus).

    20171008_071446[1].jpg

    Sandstorm is tired of living in Springer's shadow and his own dark thoughts have turned into a sword that is just as powerful as Springer's. Now he's decided to take the leadership from Springer's hands.
