    In anticipation of MAYBE talking the wife, kids into letting me get my first Legends Takara release I had TR Blitzer and Megatron out last night playing and playing with them, I just LOVE That mold and am not only accepting but THRILLED to try and get it a third time in matching purple to my Current Voyager theme ... I just love the uniformity of the Alt modes like a standard Soviet-ised Decepticon army. ... I'm just trying to remember that Megatron clones name I read on TF wiki the other week... so I can repurpose him ( the LG 63 guys) when / if I can get him.

    Oh Man I don't know whats happening here but I need some of it, I want one more white/ red Aerial bot for my mix and match Superion. I like the gold guy ok but sometimes I want my Souppy all white and red

    Dude, I'm glad for you to get such a good condition item in package ... but man that Alt mode just doesn't have much "shelf Appeal" to a kid does it? its just sort of a grey plank

    Oh Yeah pretty sure imma army build those guys when they hit here

    Great Choice, I can never not want to play with my CW Mirage, now I wish I had mine with me today he may be me AND my older sons fav Deluxe

    This is how I roll as well, I also did a Version where I screwed the face plate off of a Skytread and used Overloads TM body since the Skytread face matches triggerhappys thruster nozzels and Overload matches Triggerhappys blue body color so well. It made a permanent character in my ranks and got me started swapping TM faces for better color matches a LOT more often, seriously its just one screw I don't know what took me so long!

    Another great choice, just a top notch toy that's vastly indurated along with any of his moldmates like BC Optimus

    I mean they are some of the only transformers from the era that would stay together and be ready to play if you tossed em in a box to play another day... just being a self contained unit was a bonus in those days and even as a 7(?) year old I got that the trick they did was why they were what they were and loved them in their own way.

    I genuinely am staggered by what they did here. This is an exceptionally well realised piece.

    Since today is Valentine's Day.

    Love lift us up where we belong
    Where the eagles cry
    On a mountain high
    Love lift us up where we belong
    Far from the world below
    Up where the clear winds blow

    NBK's upscale of Iron Factory's Evil Lord. Just the right size and that new headsculpt completely revitalises the figure.

    @motorthing I saw your post in the UK thread about your thoughts on Leader class figures, and I used to feel the same way about them as well, but Titans Return changed all of that for me. I didn't care much for the first 2 waves of Leaders since I only wanted characters such as Sixshot, Black Shadow, and Overlord, so I waited on them to come out. I got them all, and with that done, I really only had one main favorite: Black Shadow. His transformation may look and feel simple, but it's pretty fun to do back and forth. Posing him doesn't feel frustrating at all, and that's coming from a guy who has a hard time putting figures into decent poses. :lol  His paint job is so delicous looking and I honestly can't recommend him enough, so if you see him on clearance some where, think about picking him up. :thumb 

    With that said, Black Shadow is my favorite of the day. :)

    So, I have Overlord and Quickswitch. I was wondering if you think it's worth it to buy Sky Shadow and Sixshot? I'm pretty sure I know what your thoughts are on Sky Shadow, but I thought I'd ask.
