    This'll have to do while I wait for the remaining Terrorcons... as well as TDW's Abominus kit :confused:

    Attention for those who haven't bought a Prime Master Alpha Trion yet:
    IMG_20180810_181848.jpg

    There are two "variants" on the Decoy Shell's shoulder:

    One of them has a normal sized shoulder socket, one of them has a slightly small shoulder hole, which resulted on the Decoy Armor's shoulder pegs being warped in package.

    Ya I like the original version of the character as an Optimus Prime-ish leader over the religious wackjob he was made into in the IDW comics. Those comics had a nasty trend of turning non-G1 characters into their exact opposite character types. But that’s a discussion for another day (or hopefully never given that the comics are ending soon).

    Getting us back on topic, ya I’m glad they ditched that “all aboard Rodimus!” concept. Creative(ish) I guess, but from a practical point of view it’s just slapping vehicle modes onto ol’ Roddy. But I would take that over Seige just doing more G1 characters who already have toys. Seriously unless we see some REALLY obscure characters this is the first generations line I will be buying nothing from. Really sad, actually. Plus that raised price I heard about really scares me off. I can bite $20 for a SS deluxe because they have lots of detail, complex transformations and a backdrop, but $20 for something like Seige Ironhide is a no!

    Why does the characterisation in one series even matter to a toy though? Sentinel Prime was a massive fascist bastard in the comics but Hasbro's marketing for Titans Return depicted him as 100% good guy. If Star Saber had won the vote he'd have been marketed as the same good ol' Optimus-Prime-but-a-Gundam you know and love.

    But i did this to her for combine mode.

    I also think that Sentinel Prime being in DOTM had just a little to do with the TR version. He was kind of sort of a familiar name with not just IDW fans. I really want to like the TR Sentinel Prime figure, but he looks too much like ORange Astrotrain with a Prime head. I wish they did just a little retooling. I'm also shocked no 3rd party company made the IDW Sentinel Prime Apex Armor as an add on

    Hi guys, do you also have bug problems with this hot weather?
    I got a major insects problems and i can't even kill them.
    They are eating everything in my house.

    IMG_2816.JPG IMG_2818.JPG IMG_2817.JPG Shrapnel is not so good as the other 2. And why is it that he has no bug head? Or is his upper body suppose to be his bug head?
    IMG_2819.JPG
    Love Bombshell the most of the 3. This was how G1 toy looked like with his legs. And so i think G1 Bombshell was the worst looking Insecticons. Because they can't even make a swivel back then. Strange is that G1 Shrapnel did had swivel.
    I had G1 Shrapnel because i think G1 Shrapnel was the best of the 3. Now he's the worst of the 3. But i still like him, just not as much as the other 2.
    Things have changed since then.
    I posted here because Shrapnel got reissued in PotP.

    Do you guys know how many PotP waves are still coming and when it's coming?
    I think there should be 1 more wave, but i don't know when.

    There's one more Deluxe wave (the Novastar wave) and that's all that's known. Everything else known has been released.

    I'm not entirely sure what the contents of the Novastar wave include.

    Sentinel is the only TR Voyager I never saw in stores and am missing, I hope he shows up in that " 7 figure transformers purchase" from ollies this fall .... I also considered getting the SDCC Cle4ar variant since I don't have a Brainstorm.

    If anyone has one to trade please send me your wants list and I will see what I can do.

    that pretty critter that lives with me let slip that she had pre ordered Punch Counter Punch for me yesterday when I was talking about getting the PWT shirts.

    TADOW~!!!!!


    I sort of wish they would just keep releasing things in this format and call it " Prime Wars Trilogy " and keep giving us headmasters and combiner limbs even after WFC ramps up. I could see supporting this for a while.

    I've bought exactly one TF figure new, and that was the POTP Legends class Skrapnel. I bought him because he was literally the only Legends class Decepticon on the shelf.

    I wish they would have continued with the headmasters/combiners instead of going with rather boring (IMO) mechteck like weapons.

    I believe it was Novastar and repacks of Slag, Swoop, and Darkwing. Jazz was repacked in the third wave. Missed opportunity not doing G2 Dinobots but whatever.

    Also, I lucked into a Snarl shopping a "24-hour" Walmart that, surprise, now closes from midnight to 6 AM. Only took until August 9th and the packaging was pretty destroyed (because Walmart). On the bright side, I like Snarl. He looks weird with my small handful of Hasbro CW figures (Fireflight, Breakdown, and First Aid) though. It reminds me of the original ActionMasters where he randomly got a figure because reasons.

    I thought it was Rippersnapper instead of Swoop, but I am often wrong about things. Either way, a semi-random assortment of repacks

    Could be. I just remember reading the Dinobots and rolling my eyes because that's all I've seen for nine months.
