    My guess for the next Plasic Addict review is Armada "Sideasswipe" if Omegus Prime even owns it.

    I know they separate, but it's hard to make him stand when they're apart because it takes away the only heel spurs he has. Hence the line "You have to give him the Micromaster unileg" to make him stable.

    So what was the Vangelus moment then?

    While I was showing the arm articulation with the Star Saber, Runway fell off the sword, I didn't want to lose the cut so I just kept going and covered for it in the little story I was telling, with a caption to rub in my screwup.

    It's a technique Vangelus long since perfected :lol

    If you mean Wheeljack, no, I actually rather like that figure. But there's a couple related to this Hot Shot that's on my hit list already.

    I was referring to Sideswipe, b/c Sideswipe calls Hot Shot his brother in the show. & I agree, Armada Wheeljack is pretty cool.

    Ooooh, that one... Actually I don't even own that figure aside from the Cybertron remold but for some reason that version's a lot better to me than the original Armada release... If I can get one cheap, though, Sideswipe's definitely getting a turn.

    Hahaha, that was great. My friend has Powerlinx Hot Shot (who'd I'd argue is even worse), so I completely agree with you on the awefulness of this toy.

    But what I really loved was when you opened the box and Advent One-Winged Angel started playing. That cracked me up. Kudos to you for another great review!

    Big <3 for respecting the Shot legs.
