    I was all set to get the xtb one until I read @Maz '_s review of artifex. Heard the floppy ankle is common and good to know its fixable

    Yeah,@Maz 's review ultimately convinced me. Though I would be grateful if he told us how he managed to get that trailer pegged in :)  (I think it depends on how you transform the legs, but that's just a guess).

    Damn, that Cyclonus looks like he just step out from the Sunbow screen especially the jetmode, love it. The face maybe a midget off...but still looks good overall. Don't know if the silver paint will make it looks better or not.

    Last couple of days arrivals. Assaulter there is a heavy sod, all in the lower half, Winbdblade looks great in bot mode - although TF Windblade has a far better face - but is a bit finicky and floppy in alt-mode, the ball joints at the top of Hounds legs are loose as hell but he's ace and I bloody LOVE Mindwipe! He's my one exception to the 'no Baybots' rule, because he's just THAT cool. Animated Blurr is soon to be butchered into an IDW Chromedome.

    20170714_210022.jpg the sword is pointing to the spot where his chest plate tabs in under his armpits. This keeps his chest plate from wiggling like crazy. now not so bad.

    I don't recall having any problems with Artifex's hood, but I did with Terraegis.

    All the best

    Oh God you're absolutely right, when you wrote 'hood' I heard 'roof'. I struggled with Terraegis' roof. Yes you are correct, I could not get the hood to sit flush against the grille.

    All the best

    Update: I've managed to get the backpack/trailer to sit flush! I've posted the solution here: Ocular Max Artifex (MP Scaled Hoist)

    Those bots are awesome! Great buys. But, what I'd like to know, where did you get the octopus?

    Finally caved in after debating a long time on whether or not to pick up this funky monkey since his release. A3U had the banana crate in stock and when I saw that the store had 1 left of OP in stock, I decided to get him before I resort to the US online shops or ebay in case it sold out that moment. The design of this toy seems amazingly planned out well, so I give respect to the creative team by sending them my $ (sponsored by VISA) in appreciation.

    Guilty confession: I've only watched 15 minutes into the first episode of BW. I've never cared to look into the storyline as I'm more of a G1nner and IDW MTMTE fan. I was most likely past the target demographic when BW first came out. I've heard very good things about how well the story and characters were written. I believe my order for the complete BW DVDs will be added to my Amazon cart now.

    Beautiful pics. I've been meaning to pick up Eligos for a while now, and this may have just pushed me over the edge. :) 

    You will enjoy it. The 90s-era CG animation is a bit rough in S1 (but gets much better in S2 and S3), but the story and characters are top-notch. The G1 cameos are the icing on the cake. :D

    Got this a few days ago, the elusive Chaos on Velocitron set from Amazon. The box is beat up, and there's a big gash on the front, but I'm an opener, so I don't care. :)

    Long Island's got shit for movie toys(post wave one, I think that Voyager Grimlock has become one of my least favorite toys ever because of how frequently I see it), but Targets are fantastic for TR. They had the Wave Four Deluxes-but not just a few..at least two of every one besides Krok and Quake. I recommended Quake to a curious family, so naturally, I picked the poor Scavenger up.
    upload_2017-7-15_17-46-7.png
    The joints are tight and plentiful, the sculpt and paint are glorious, and it just feels awfully satisfying to have a Krok. If I see one more full peg of W1 Movie toys I'm gonna absolutely go absolutely goddamn ballistic. I've had the chance to play with all of them, and BB and Slash are cancerous. My younger cousin bought the Deluxe Bee, and his parents thought that it was defective. I fixed it, but even the little guy concluded that it was crap. I literally gave him Slash. Even though that piece of garbage costed me nothing, I still feel like I got robbed. Moral of the story: buy Nitro and Squeeks online.
