at first i said, " no movie toys except the Real Gear toys, the movie toys are ugly" i saw the movie acurate bumblebee repaint in the customs thread, and got bumblebee, liked him, and painted my own rust and wear. then i got baricade, cuz the police car alt mode is bitchin.... added some gun metal dry brushing, and brought out some details.... he's pretty darn cool then, i said, well, Ironhide LOOKS ok, but... no, i'll just get robovison prime at botcon, and that will be it. NOPE. saw Ironhide at walmart today, had a $50 giftcard from my birthday last week, so i picked him up, proceeded to dry brush some gun metal and really wear him up, detailed his face, and BAM!! AWSOMENESS AGAIN. so i've decided that it's the drybrushing gun metal over the figures that makes them look so damn cool now, and VERY VERY movie acurate. they look like they are real, and THAT looks cool on a shelf. so, i was wrong, the movie toys are pretty darn decent, BUT there are some figures i'm just not going to bother with. may get dropkick, and can't wait to get robovision prime, and '08 bumblebee is a must. i'm man enough to admit i was wrong... continue on your day.
