This may be the best pose I’ve seen so far. Once he has a decepticon insignia, it’ll be perfect.
Do you really want Stack? Are you in the US? I'll have to make sure I'm not missing anything (besides the box, which I definitely don't have), but I'll consider selling you mine.
Trying a new direction
I know some are having trouble with hip skirts not lifting out. You have to lift the panel from the inner most part, closest to crotch. If you lift from the outer edge it will not move.
Applied a bunch of pledge to the chest to see if it will protect it from any future scratches.
If it works, I might just do this on my replacement chest to make sure it's safe for much longer.
What’s more G1 toon accurate - clean shaven or goatee?
Probably both. I've seen him with or without it during season three. Sometimes within the same scenes. I personally like the look of either option on this guy.
None of the above. I bought two sheets of waterslide paper a while back (one white, one clear) and then printed the logos from this site using the laser printer at work. They came out fairly well and were very cheap to produce. The only real issue is with cutting out the white backed ones, particularly the 'Con insignias.
Flash photography makes him look purple. I have a bunch of shots where he looks the same colour, but he is most definitely more blue. To illustrate, here's a photo of my figure taken with a flash in different lighting conditions. Looks like a totally different paint job, but a complete misrepresentation of the actual colour. My previous pics are actually much closer to the true aesthetic.
I lean towards clean, myself (mostly because I kinda count the movie as his "true" character model)
Which one do you like more?!
My display's been moving around a bunch thanks to Quietus here...he's too pretty to not be in front, but Carnifex is still keen on stealing the shot.
I personally like the goatee vibe bc I’m a Jim Rome fan lol, but looking at the screen stills it appears he was sans facial hair in TFTM ... so guess I have to roll with his authoritative anime appearance since the rest of my MP display has gone full toon (and they say never go ‘full toon’ ha)
Hmmm, ok! If I were you I would go with what I like the most.
Being a slave of accuracy is not good either!!
After having Quietus for a while now and displaying him in both his G1 and IDW bot mode I feel the IDW just doesn't look right in my opinion,so I think I will either put his head and accessories back in the box or give them to my nephew,he loves stuff like that to make new figures out of.But to me Quietus just represents his G1 Character so much better.
I go for the goatee. To me his face just looks empty without it, and it also visually links him to Galvatron, Scourge/Sweeps and Unicron.
I went with the goatee face because that's what he's got out of the box. Minimum effort for the win!
So no other English reviews on him besides Skullface, tman, and rfc?
I found this one earlier:
There’s also quite a few comprehensive reviews on this thread. I think they’re in English too.
I am just messing around. Wanted to show appreciation to the cool members who took time to do the write-ups and take those great pics.
I appreciate those. My post was more surprised that some of the bigger name reviewers out there still have not done a review. Emgo and Ben come to mind.
