    Try a really simple photo editing app. I use one litterally called Photo Editdor. I resize it smaller and crop it to keep everyones data usage down and now I also never get rotated pics.

    Weirdwolf is a much better name than Wolfwire. That being said, this guy’s not really that weird, he’s really friggin’ cool!

    A nice surprise from the TR branch of Generations, Weirdwolf is probably one of the best Deluxe figures from the line. Great design, some of the better accessories, excellent poseability, and great detailing and colors, Weirdwolf is a fun update to the G1 version.

    Mine did suffer the slight breakdown of the pin holding the wolf’s head. Not sure how bad it was for others, but so far it’s just the outer plastic pieces that broke off. The majority of the pin and clip system is still holding together with no signs of stress as far as I can tell. Still able to transform well enough. And actually doesn’t look that terrible. As long as it holds up, I can live with it. Aside from that, Weirdwolf is an awesome beast former. His poseability is great even in beast mode. I love that his head can pivot, though I do wish it could tilt up and maybe get a decent howling pose. Blood soaked teeth intimidation will have to suffice.

    Just did this recently, I added some very nice chrome highlights. They really pop with the yellow and teal I think.

    Some of the best weapons of the line that didn’t suffer too much from the Titan Masters gimmick, this guy is not to be messed with. A big, beefy blaster and a badass sword that doubled as his tail, I love this figure’s accessories. And he wields them so well.

    I like the option to shoulder-mount the blaster. It actually looks very imposing, almost giving Megs and Galvatron a run for their money. And he appears to be quite the formidable swordsbot as well.

    Weirdwolf is my favorite of the original G1 Decepticon large headmasters. I never had any of the originals as a kid and was really glad they were included in this line and finally got proper beast mode articulation and great updated molding and design. Weirdwolf is a prime example of how great Titans Return is.

    Nice.
    Good to see what the toys look like without all the dirty oil gunk splashes all over their faceplate neck and chest

    Weirdwolf is cool, but it’s actually Mindwipe who’s the weird one.....in a good way.
    443FDEE0-06E3-4F63-93AD-93057D0A9371.jpeg
    Definitely the Transformers answer to Dracula, Mindwipe is strangely fascinating. One of the more unique designs and transformations from Titans Return, this figure, unlike his namesake implies, is kinda hard to forget.
    C94AF675-253D-45DA-A715-C6511DDEDCD3.jpeg
    Mindwipe’s bat mode is one the creepiest alt modes ever but it’s a cool creepy. The execution of the figure is brilliant. The shade of purple used is perfect for this character and that headsculpt for the bat is very effective, it even has painted fangs....it’s great!
    97A4ECDE-8440-44F6-BC8B-CBD098F7DF27.jpeg
    The molding and detailing in the wings is wonderful. They’re even kinda textured with that softer rubber/plastic to give them that organic feel. The multiple hinges in the wings give a lot of options for flight poses, it’s just too bad that the feet are too static. It’s still kinda accurate though, I mean bats are really stubby and usually only need their feet to hang upside down. That would’ve been a cool feature for this guy to pull off. The other genius stunt the wing hinges pull off.......
    2CC06F7A-3949-431B-9394-C1C5420DB4B1.jpeg
    They form Mindwipe’s robot legs! They are a bit blocky, but it’s a very clever technique. The faux bat wings really give him an appropriate silhouette for his character and I really love this shade of purple. His face sculpt is appropriately creepy too. With those red eyes, Mindwipe definitely has that vampire vibe.
    A82B6165-F4C1-4EEE-8E8C-BA4A94035E62.jpeg
    Even with the chunky design of the legs, he’s still fairly poseable. Mindwipe has some cool accessories too. The blaster is a really cool design and the ‘fang’ shield is a fun addition. The only minor quibble I have is the robot feet. I don’t mind the size and shape of them, I just wish they were on a ball joint rather than a fixed hinge. That would’ve made his poseability a lot better.
    56192B75-3B00-479E-BC96-0132DFEB6EC0.jpeg
    Overall Mindwipe is a pretty fun figure. An excellent update to the G1 version, he is another one of my favorite beast formers out of Titans Return. Now look away before he makes you forget what I just said.

    Well normally that would be cool. But I just checked nonnef’s site and they retired the mold for this upgrade. Oh well, like I said it’s a minor quibble. But thanks anyway!

    Just in time for the final issue, I've re-arranged my MTMTE+LL cast collection. The Scavengers are included and off to the side is a pile of corpses courtesy of James Roberts. I hope this is an appropriate thread to share the pics in, seeing as these figures are from a myriad of lines, but no 3P. Oh, and a G1 Rewind who I bought loose.

    This is because the pixels. If the heights of photos are over about 3000 pixels and yours are with portrait shape, they will be rotated by TFW. You could use simple apps like Window's paint to resize that make the height under 3000 pixels, then the problem all gone.

    Not sure how to categorize this guy. Is he CHUG? is he 3rd party? I mean he's the CHUG Ultra Magnus with a 3rd party add on.... so not sure how to count him

    Doggone, I love the fact that a comic can inspire such an eclectic yet awesome collection like this. It's different from your usual 84 bots and cons, movie bots and cons, etc. I hope whatever we get next, it has some fresh character groupings like this again.

    Good news though, the Protectobots survived! Well not Rook, but the others can be seen in Swerve's Bar in the last issue :D
