    I want a Minibot train set. All of the MiniBots. Connected in a super long train Every redeco. Every Throttlebot even. I will buy two of everything if they do. Just keep them this sized.

    I’m at about a year and a half into RID/MTMTE, but I don’t really think I’d start Revolutions.

    Still, I usually like faceplates over mouthes on my bots, so I’m liking the sound of this Centurion.

    However, an Animated Wasp repaint would really excite me, especially if Mech Planet does the Insectitrain!

    Now, I wouldn’t normally plan to double up on a set—and I don’t normally go in for trains, but I’d almost definitely like an Insectitrain and a set of Insecticons :D 

    Really, though, a Revolver Megatron would be so sick, especially if it fit in War Giant’s hands :p 

    Oh, and one more thing, 130 Hong Kong Dollars converts to 16.57 USD, and 130 Yuan converts to 20.64 USD, or at least that’s what google tells me.

    Remember, kids, it’s not just about the numbers but the units!

    I need me a little Centurion. Even if he does lack the cowcatcher faceplate.

    Damn, just knowing that they're affordable makes my wallet cry. How is that Soundwave figure? I don't have a single figure of SW, so it would be neat to try this new line out with Soundwave.

    I love mine, I wish he had thigh swivels instead of at the knees but beyond that I love it. Somehow I got a TF Con version, more vibrant colors and Wingthing and I think Howlback? Not sure on the other tiny cassette guy with him. Anyways, the dude sits on my desk in altmode and gets played around with rather frequently. Highly suggest getting one with the add on that he's taller then most Legends scale stuff. Dwarfs my DX9 Shockwave so I plan on picking up the MFT oversized Legends guys to match with him.

    These certainly don't make pain for your wallet.

    Mech Planet Soundwave is awesome. It could use a few more swivels but, for a first figure, they knocked it out of the park.

    Looking damn good. Cannot wait to get this! More Hearts of Steel (or just robots turning into steam-powered vehicles, especially steam trains) is NEVER a bad thing!
    Revolutions is only Hearts of Steel - four issues - so there's not much to start, because you'll be finished before you even begin (for better or worse).

    Alright, guess I'll be buying a Soundwave! I've been meaning to try the whole 3rd party deal, so it would nice to start off small. How reliable is the Chosen Prime?

    I buy like 90% of my TF purchases from them. I would give them more money but their Marvel Legends and SW Black series selection is small (along with other random things like the Voltron figures I wish they carried). So, in other words, they're fantastic!

    Good. I give 85% of my money to the Chinese War Machine, though.

    I have the first issue from when I tried to get into TF comics. I thought it was boring, with dark artwork.

    If any company would ever make them scaled to one of the many model railroad scales out there, one could easily go to the local hobby shop and get cheap track etc, for displays.

    This guy will be a all stops out full on everything paint job for me (the first I've done in a while). That plastic deco won't cut it for me, but I've needed this guy ever since MMC did HOS (what actually got me into 3P to begin with).

    What face guard? I didn't remember one so I just flipped through the full thing (inc concept art) and I don't see anything like that (although it sounds cool). His face on the main cover is a little different (and honestly I like that version better than the final), but I don't see a face guard.

    Different character, same design. Newer stuff they retconned the Hearts Of Steel stuff as a Maximal ship crash landing on Earth. They intercepted a transmission from Prime and after the crash the dude thought HE was suppose to be Bee. He's called Centurion now.

    I would love to see a fun Cliffjumper repaint with a bit of remolding. They could easily add a new head (with faceplate option) and throw on a rear fender like the Back to the Future train...
