    If anyone is on the fence with MP Inferno, go get him. So awesome!

    Plus the new tiny diecast bonus figures are pretty cool. Like the decoys from back in the day.

    Hey guys and gals!

    Happy Thanksgiving late as usual, back to living at work thru the end of the year................................

    I know a lot of us have kids now and I joined the Lake Shore Model Railroad Association with my older boy last year.

    70th Anniversary Open House is next weekend Dec. 3rd and 4th from noon to 4pm both days. It is located at the Calumet Park Field House.

    It would be cool to see some folks on Sat the 3rd when I will be there. Its a nice place to check out and the club is kid friendly.


    Now Transformer content. Thank God I somehow managed to preorder Inferno from overseas and got the email the other day..... Don't even remember when I did it.

    Is there an issue I don't know about concerning MP Buzzsaw? Mine broke, so i got a replacement which also broke in a different spot. And i know at least one person on this board who also had a broken MP Buzzsaw. Statistical anomaly?

    Man I am going to have a massive backlog once I get back into the collecting game.

    Since I lost my job I've stopped all purchases cold turkey. It did help me put into perspective exactly what I was spending on this hobby though and it did not make me happy.
    So even though there will be a lot to catch up on, I'm strictly limiting myself to one purchase a month no matter what.

    Another good thing though, I've really had time to actually enjoy and admire what I have for once instead of simply hording more. Its been really eye opening and reinforces even more that I will be strictly MP when I resume collecting.

    I am happy to help.

    So, Doublecross/Twinferno is kind of a nightmare; his hips rival RtS Perceptor's shoulders. I eventually figured out that once I could get his tail to actually stay together, it was the only thing holding those hips relatively where they should be. Getting those two (edit: well, four: legs and tail tip are two each) to stay together took a lot of squeezing, though. And standing on his own...not so easy. But the dragon mode is delightfully boxy, very G1 in spirit.
