    Man with those Decepticon emblems instead of SG Autobot ones, I'm tempted to just call it Wildrider and Menasor, maybe Motorbreath/master.

    Picked up Hun-Grr tonight. What an awesome figure! I'm really impressed by how tight the combined mode is, not to mention how fun the bot and beast modes are.
    So great!

    Also got Elita-1.

    Did I say how much I like Hun-Grr?

    Can you share some pics pretty please? Also, I'm glad you said the Beast mode is fun. I'm really enjoying POTP beasts modes so far, so it's nice to see the trend keep going. Also, I'm guessing Elita ain't quite your tempo, eh?

    Man, can't wait to get wave 2. Lots of good looking bots.

    I'm glad Elita-1 is good, I really wanted a nice voyager figure to combine Jazz with. Because Jazz is great! :D

    so my local walmart started stocking wave 2, managed to get this Elita, Hun-Gurr, Battletrap and Tailgate. But there is a bit of a story to go with it. I got both voyagers for $20 a pop and all 3 legends for $7 each. I had gone into my local super center at like 1am, couldn't sleep and was bored, and they are open 24/7 so i said fuck it. anyway i guess that they had JUST put them on the pegs them and they had not yet removed the clearance sale from the previous week (to clear out the pegs i guess from the previous wave to make room for the new ones) i managed to snag them at clearance prices because i showed up at JUST the right time before it was removed.

    anyway here's a few random pics.
    battletrap.jpg
    god this guy is great.


    Elita1.jpg
    Removed ALL of her shitty foil stickers from head to toe, i hate them so, so much... (save the shoulder insignias) honestly it hardly changed the figure... why do they keep using these? they are more of a burden then they are anything else and add little value.

    Of this whole line. this particular mold feels like a straight Knock off. Starscream too, everything else in this line ive handled has been perfectly fine, great even, but starscream and elita have that "KO feel" anyone else with me on that?

    hungurr.jpg
    no stickers on hun-gurr either. Even removed the con symbols, gonna repro them with better ones, man foil sticker SUCK. can we scream this loud enough? maybe hasbro will hear and never use them again.

    snaptrap.jpg
    oh, hello there eventually Snaptrap, how are you.

    and one more, something a lot of people might like
    abominus head.jpg
    Abominus head is cast in pink plastic. (also shitty rubber antenna, but leagues better than superion had.)
    Unsure if I'm gonna strip it myself yet but i know quite a few people might like too.

    i have a feeling this might mean a UW/TT release, i know its a stretch but someone had to make the decision to make sure the head was the same color as the chest because why do it if you were gonna paint over it with white anyway?

    I took both Op and Rodimus back the very next day. I just didn't like them in hand. I was really disappointed.

    Can you post pictures of the jet mode with the stickers removed? I'm curious on what details are underneath.

    He looks great, I'm wishing he had all tampos like Slugslinger.

    When I went out to look for wave 2 I only found 2 Unicronuses, the things I didn't want.

    Thanks, I wonder what the g1 gun would look like.

    I'm using Slashes as torso fillers instead of Prime armor. I've got Skydive and Offroad as limbs until I get Sludge and Snarl, since they have roughly the same grey and red color scheme.
    volcfront.JPG
    I'm using HFGs as hands so I can make the bigger feet. The hand prime armor is facing forward for a few reasons. First, once I get the other dinos, the hands and feet will match. Second, the spiked toes remind me a bit of the movie dino feet.

    Most improtantly, the hand portion of the foot is bulkier than the pointed toe. When I first saw the PotP feet, I thought the gap between the Deluxe and the foot made the foot look more like something attached to the Deluxe than a natural outgrowth. The bulk helps conceal that.

    That's also why I have Slag's tail split and pointing down, instead of being folded away in the calf. I think Sludge can do the same thing, since he's a retool of Slag.

    Here's a pic of the back, so you can see how the Slashes are "attached". Really, all the support comes from the raptor claws resting in the gaps in the front, by Grimlock's dino neck. The back is just Slash arms leaning against Grim's dino toes. You can't lift Volcanicus by the Slashes, but they don't move around when you carry V.

    couldn't get a better pic, hope it helps.

    also they painted the front of the wings red (the white forward parts attached to the nose cone) and then covered that red with a sticker.. LOL WHY?
