    Sounds like a good pair to me! Two of my absolute favorites, but I never shot of pic of them together. I guess I'll need to fix that. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Amazing, it's 2017, yet Steelcore lives on in many people's minds.

    I personally to this day love my Steelcore figure! Such an awesome unique figure!

    It's no doubt a testament to the quality of the figure. Even though it isn't an intentional homage to any specific character, which was a major strike against it in many people's eyes, it still holds a dear place in the hearts and on the shelves of many a collector.

    I have found a ton of add-ons that only enhance the play value more and more...
    -WST Optimus Prime blasters
    -FP Blesser and Sidearm
    -MT Replacement sword for Drift
    -PE Ejector/Rewinder and Sun/Night and the backpack to hold them
    -And a TON of Kotobukiya items that have been shown in the SteelCore thread

    And I haven't even mentioned the little Solerons and trailer (with multiple connection points for c-clip weapons) to hold them all!

    Whether it just stands on your shelf looking like a straight up BADASS, or if you like to interact with him and his accessories from time to time, SteelCore has something that's appealing for everybody! He even looks damn good in pics!

    The only bad thing that I can think of about him is that FP never did any repaints. Other than that, damn near a perfect figure, IMHO.

    I love mine. His design aesthetics and transformation made him an instant favorite. I even upgraded him to a Power Master.

    Yep, but sadly this is what 'happened' to the spirit of originality that Steelcore brought to the 3P market...

    I remember you sharing those pics before! Flux Capacitor! Time traveling SteelCore! :cool: 


    Helluva pic, makes quite the statement! Zooming in on little Steel's ripped off legs makes it even more disturbing, lol.

    I like the use of Stormbomb's chains, too. Especially since he doesn't use them in insect mode. :D

    I haven't bought the official MPs because their aesthetics just don't appeal to me as much as these two from TFC, but TFC's figures could use some slight tweaks to make them perfect.

    Thanks man, but I don't feel like I'm doing any of these beautiful bots any justice with my novice attempts

    Na I wouldn't say that at all! I think your pics are pretty good. I like them, especially the first and second one with the fembots.:thumb 

    You know I am definitely a novice myself. When it comes to taking pictures there are wayyy better people out there than me. But even so I just have fun with posing them and everything, to me that's important, and I think it shows in the pic(s) if your enjoying taking them or not. So keep it up! :D
