    Finally went ahead and bought TLK Cybertron from my local TRU that supposedly closes on Monday. Sadly it was still over $100, but there only two remaining so I didn't want to take any chances.

    So here's a pic of Primus and his disciples (the ones that are out).

    I really hope I don't have to get Repugnus. I'm still not happy about Peraking and Onyx.

    Really shitty night at work. Really good way to help decompress is to come home and indulge in your favorite hobby. Earlier this week I broke down and bought a figure off eBay I’ve been wanting for awhile but could not find anywhere in my area. Not egregiously more expensive than it would’ve been in store luckily and definitely worth it because I’ve been wanting to try something with this figure ever since I saw Peaugh’s review (first one I saw up on YouTube months ago).

    I finally got Darkwing!!!!!!!
    5F0A2A69-5A7B-4B4A-874D-7021813C8C61.jpeg
    I know he’s an Aerialbot remold but this guy is a badass. His color scheme is awesome and the remolding comes off really well done. He looks really good with his partner Dreadwind.
    AE301371-E7B3-4901-8062-BDDD063F0292.jpeg
    I never had either of these figures from the G1 era and I know they’re smaller than their original counterparts, but I don’t care. These guys are a couple of awesome Decepticon updates. Not perfect, but good enough and that’s ok with me.
    A9C205FE-29C9-49FE-B7EC-D3E28BCBFC90.jpeg
    I have a small space to work in so I can’t get too wide on my dynamic shots but both these guys are surprisingly poseable and look cool with their accessories. I prefer the term Prime Shield to Prime Armor obviously. They just work better that way. Some good playability options!
    7158F11B-BBEB-4E68-8C69-6CDCDDBD1363.jpeg
    The only gripe I really have is mine suffers from the warped tail fin syndrome that seems common with this figure. Not a major gripe, I know it’s fixable. No biggie.
    Darkwing still looks cool on the runway next to Dreadwind.

    02B8806C-4270-4F2A-8596-0EFE1BD9BB16.jpeg

    And now for the main reason I was itching to get my hands on Darkwing. I have not seen this done anywhere else on the boards so if I missed something please someone let me know, but I had to do this.
    .....
    .....
    .....

    May I present my version of Dreadwing!!!

    Still not perfect but no matter what angle I look at this, it is much cooler than the official version. Holds together well, but I did a little pre-prep. After watching all the videos on YouTube I noticed that a lot of collectors were having the same problem with the one connection point being very loosey goosey. So a couple weeks ago I went ahead and thickened Dreadwind’s feet port with some floor polish. Worked like a charm. This little experiment didn’t come out quite how I pictured it in my head, but still really cool. This helped make my night better. I hope it makes yours better too. Enjoy!

    Damn had a stroke of genius right after my previous post. I just remembered I have two Prime Shields for Dreadwind so..
    8E9311A6-88E5-465C-99ED-8113725F779B.jpeg
    I used them to fill out the space under Darkwing’s wings. Definitely helps the silhouette and now Dreadwing has proper thruster power. I’m really happy with this.

    One of the best uses of the Prime Shields (Armors) in my humble opinion. Enjoy!

    I thought a "leak" was supposed to be a breach of secrecy regarding upcoming releases. How could Hasbro "leak" anything at all?

    I saw a couple places where people were talking about a reduced size in the PotP legends figures, but hadn't noticed it myself. So it was time for some comparison! The PotP guys are about half a head shorter than brawn and seaspray. But are similar to older figures, some of whom are also tall. I think it's all just variance.
