    Hey, the Swoop repack might not be ALL bad, it could be the red version they kept showing on all the packaging.

    Nice upgrades.
    Here is mine.
    I'm getting the Abominus upgrades.
    This one was actually for Elita 1.
    And peoples, when you get this upgrades, do sand down a little bit on the pegs.
    They are too thick.
    Measure it on a bad figure you have because it destroyed my Rippersnappers slot. pic 4
    I'll fix it with some glue when i've bought it.
    The feet also need to sand down just a little bit to fit better.
    It was pretty tight on my Sinnertwin but it hasn't broken it.
    Good thing about the hands is that it has a 5mm port and also MP groove in the hand to fit MP weapons.

    I'm really appreciating the Terrorcons as a team. I was pretty cold on Hunn-Gur and Rippersnapper was okay, but the last three are clearly the best three and they really elevate the team. I don't have the Technobots to oppose them, but the Dinobots work really well in that role especially since half of the Terrorcons are remolds of the Dinobots. I also found my old CW Shockwave to give him some armaments.

    he's the only black repaint who isn't supposed to be evil.
    in his case the combined mode colors are based on his normal colors, which just happen to be mostly black.

    as for why people might treat him as an evil version, there are 2 likely reasons.
    there's the earlier fact that both other black repaints are evil.
    then there's his accessories, I don't think any previous autobot-side leader has ever felt the need to dress up as a king with a crown, a scepter, and a throne.
    autobot leaders don't just spend their days sitting in a fancy chair enjoying their dominance over the others, they take action to right the wrongs of the world.
    and apparently the whole "king primal" thing is a bit out of character for optimus primal as well.

    to me it's different.
    I see the regular optimal optimus as the beast wars version, who gained his power by absorbing optimus prime's spark(giving him brighter colors)
    the throne optimus gained his power directly from the matrix of leadership as its legitimate holder, letting him retain much of his original appearance.
    the cartoon disagrees with me though.

    I just like seeing SDCC Primal as the TF Universe's Thanos, with the scepter being like the Infinity Gauntlet. It's my personal headcanon. I like to believe he went power hungry after becoming the next prime.

    I didn't want to throw all these package arts, so it's now acting as wallpaper on my desk/office shelves.

    could also be because in the prime vote, he was listed in the "chaos" catagory with thunderwing and deathsaurus. when i get him, he'll be a Chaotic Good.

    Added to the fact that in most of nowaday's fictions, the guy on the throne is the bad guy. (starting by games of thrones, but not only).
