    Highs - Not exactly a toy haul but just found a local music festival is going to have Audio Adredaline, Day of Fire, Kutless and Thousand Foot Krutch playing on the same night. :rock 

    Lows - Even though the ticket is front stage and ALL DAY (which there is over fifty smaller bands to see through the day) it's $50. :cry

    Cybertron Excellion - Really loving this repaint. Definitely going to fix the arms to allow better shoulder articulation and maybe some silver and gold paint pen work as well.

    Intermediate
    Cybertron Override GTS - Although this still isn't one of my favorite molds, this version has a much nicer aesthetic than the original (the online pictures don't do it justice, as they often make the light grey look white) and seems to hold together a little better as well. The deco is just begging for a new name and a repro Decepticon logo over the Autobot symbol.

    Cybertron Sky Shadow - Again, not one of my favorite molds, but this is a great repaint and has a lot more character than the original.

    Low

    I still can't find Cybertron Scrapmetal anywhere, despite seeing Lugnutz in two separate locations over the weekend and being able to find the freshly-released recolour Deluxes and Ultras. Sure, I've already got GF Ramble (red), but I like the mold and Scrapmetal is supposed to have a slightly different colouration.

    Fix the arms? describe. I'm curious. I'd ask you to PM me, but I'm going to assume there's at least one other person as interested as I am as to what you mean.

    I'll preface by saying that I'm not entirely sure how well this is going to work. As for what I'm going after, look at the bright orange (middle) section of Excellion's arms (this applies to Hot Shot as well). During transformation from car to robot and deploying the arms, this section raises 90 degrees; however, further motion is blocked by a ridge of orange plastic. As a result, Excellion can't raise his arms at that joint in robot mode. Now, it's true he can still raise his arms using the transformation joint that attaches the arms to the chest, but the position of the backpack gets in the way a lot. My plan is to disassemble the shoulders and cut away those orange ridges. If it works out as I'm hoping, that should allow the arms to be raised about 45 degrees at that joint (the front vehicle wheels would block further motion). I'm hoping to test this out tonight after I get the figure reviewed.
