    If you are a fan of the Mastermind Creations KNIGHT MORPHER COMMANDER, and Shattered Glass Prime, well here you go. I am, and I am glad I have it in my CHOO CHOO COLLECTION!

    This is limited to 500 pieces exclusively to Cherry Bomb Toys via the website or the 8TH Hobby and Toy Show in Victoria, BC, Canada.

    EXCLUSIVES

    I was also able to get my hands on the prototype(the final will be much more smooth) Axes from Renderform. The green are limited to 200, and the Purple is a show exclusive(50) that you can only pick up at the show. these attach with a nice add on that fits into the hand peg.

    It has a really crisp purple(with a little bit of silver flake) and a dark grayish blue, with a bit of gold and green splash in for good flavor.

    The really cool addition is the transparent purple "trailer".

    He retains all the same articulation and transformation of the Annihilator Choochoo.

    So I will let the pictures do the talking.

    Looks pretty good. Not a fan of the translucent train part. Looks off compared to the robot. Does it have the fixed shoulders?

    Looks gorgeous. I'm debating if it's worth the $160 after shipping. Annihilator is pretty great, but I'm not usually into repaints.

    why does the green axe look so pale and subdued? I thought it was suppose to be glowy green, like Neon T>T was lookin forward to that.

    The first few pictures look like 3d models for some reason.

    I can assure you that none of those images are CG models. I know, because I took the photographs, using a genuine authentic 100% real plastic toy. :)  And I worked very hard to keep the quality high.

    I was actually aiming for making it look like the high-quality toy that it is, not making it look fake, but hey, you win some you lose some. Having held the toy in my hands (its awesome!), I'm pretty happy with how the images came out, and think they capture it pretty well.

    I wonder if the apparent CG-look of the images has to do with the careful and deliberate use of light and focus to sculpt the figure, and really bring out the depth and detail? These are both techniques fundamental to CG, where the lights and camera have to be deliberately created in the computer, and some thought has to go into their placement and implementation. Whereas with your average snapshots, a camera is pointed at an object using whatever light is present, and the trigger is pulled? I'm not really sure. They don't look fake to me, but its not the first time I have got that comment, so there must be something to it.

    Its weird, because the ultimate goal of CG artists, in general, is to make the results look real, and not CG. I, on the other hand, seem to have a knack for making the real deal look fake, without even trying.

    Okay, yes, that looks worth the extra money.
