    If anyone makes it to Fallcon and sees some affordable CW/UW stuff shoot me a line. Especially Lynxmaster/Ratchet and Grand Galvatron.

    So close to having all of that stuff...

    He's pretty awesome. Just finished putting him together. A LOT of partsforming going between modes (you have to replace the heads and legs on all the lions) and the black lion's lion mode proportions look strange, but in Voltron mode he looks awesome and has AMAZING articulation. I didn't expect him to be so much taller than the SuperMinipla Megazord, but he's still a great desk size.

    High five for new cars last week! Just bought a Tacoma so I'm going to have to scale back on new purchases for a while. Thinking I might return my G1 Devy and Starscream to Walmart since I'm not really super into them and probably will be scaling back to MP-sized stuff only here soon anyway.

    I can hold them a bit longer in case someone can't find their own and I could sell one or both to them instead.

    2017 Ford Focus. Ex-rental car, but still looks good with low mileage. It's the first car I've ever bought myself from a dealership as almost all my previous cars were originally owned by my Dad.

    My 2002 Alero was giving me all the signs it was time though as the costs of repairing all that was popping up along with the rust just became too great. I'm looking at selling some toys here in the future to help with the car payments a bit maybe. (car payments + car insurance costs)

    That was not something I was aware of. But I haven’t looked too deeply into it, I still have three MS from Gundam Wing to finish up.

    Quick review of Shadow Raider... He's not too bad. Articulation is a bit limited but does have a waist swivel. Alt mode is very obviously panel-y due to the orange outer paint and black inner colors. Paint colors are slightly uneven on the alt mode.

    Bee is in the same wave as DOTM Ratchet and Shadow Raider, but SR is the only one ever left, it seems.

    Yeah I think a couple of us are. He's really the only Bee movie thing I want. SS Dropkick can piss right off.

    Shadow raider is one of the bad stock robots from 4. It doesn't make any difference. I think they just made him so you can swap his head to Lockdown if you want mask mode. XD

    As far as the VWBee mold goes, I'm getting one of him w/the tapes from EE, so if I spot any I can prolly hold it for someone.

    Also, you can order VWBee of HTS anyway, so no reason to drive around.

    Also also, they have TF CCG starters and boosters on there now, too.

    Yeah but he'll probably be back in stock faster there than he will be in stock at stores.
