    Infinitely variable in size, just like every other character striving for accuracy.

    All you have to ask yourself is if it looks good in your collection.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a Penguin transformer. It could be an homage to the BW character as well.


    It would be a sight to see. I think it could work.
    I've seen the CW Sky Lynx with legends and he looks good.
    Depends on how imposing you want your Sky Lynx to be.

    Now, at the very least, there’s this crew from Topop...

    Among so many little things, I should get a Sakura Raptor sooner rather than too much later.

    But, those penguins may be my first buy from BeastBox, or perhaps their parakeet, which is shown in more detail over in the Toyark.

    Still, if we do see a new BW Neo Break, a shellforming gunner doesn’t nearly fit what National Geographic published with their video of the “Homewrecking Penguin.” What with the wild damage a penguin flipper can do, my hope is that some future Pen Pen Zoidsformers would transform like Transmetal 2 Prowl, but with the flippers becoming arms and not pauldrons such that Break would have tonfa, or maybe even Guyver like elbow blades.

    Oh, and having refreshed my memory with a touch of TFWiki, an updated BW Neo Dead End would be real nice, whether or not it’s actually made of a dozen Ammonites! :p

    Freakin' Paypal!

    Tried to use their HKD FX rate for the 940HKD PSX purchase and they gave me 7.58!!!!! As a FX trader I'd be fired so fast if I bought HKD at that rate! (Trades around 7.836 as a guide) Granted it only came to a ~$4 difference but still.

    Luckily my Visa's FX rate is more in line and kicks ass.

    $120 it is from PSX. Capture.PNG Hope there's an exclusive!

    Paypal always adds a percentage to their conversion.

    Finally got my Magna, and the box looks like this:

    [​IMG]

    ShowZ's original styrofoam is perfectly fine, so it did not get mangled in transport, but before.

    It really pisses me off, since I have near-pristine boxes for all my reformatted figures. One possible reason is because the figure is so damn heavy, it probably should have had sturdier packaging.

    EDIT: uh oh, I also had no tape on the inner plastic. Looks REALLY fishy.

    mine came from toydojo and the box was a bit mushed as well. The inner plastic had no tape on it either, i opened it in the parking lot at the post office and was surprised at that.

    I actually had the same problem but from tfsource. Idk, I guess it was kinda smushed. The figure turned out okay though, thankfully.

    Just noticed my Magna is missing a screw hole cover. Anyone know how to contact MMC to get a replacement?

    So, if only half of him is coming out in 2018 can he win "Toy of the Year" two years in a row or is just a one and done thing?

    Is this MP scale or no? More like G1 toy scale?
    Just my luck if I order one FT will reveal their MP version.

    Regardless of where MMC intended this to go, it'll look great with my MP figures.

    Reveals from them are pointless though. Their odds of seeing an actual release are half and half. The Phoenix X will be my first Fanstoys buy. I like the look of their arielbots too but I doubt that there is any timetable for production.

    I really wish this forum had pinned posts.
    Probably your best rough references:
