    It's an oversized Ko cw superion, I actually thought it was new, but the remolding was done to a point where you couldn't tell it was cw superion.

    Exactly how I feel about BW. Which is why I love those Headmaster designs and my FT Lupus. If only HM or BW had these bots more it would be so much better. Even Powerglide looks good. Who's making toys based on this? Hopefully someone that care about detail and posability.

    Show's over and no more reveals? I assign this year's TFCon a C-. Some remedial is required if the student wants to pass the class next year.

    The desire for a more G1-esque Combiner Wars Scattershot mod kit remains unfufilled...

    Unless I missed it, I was hoping we would see X-Transbots Abaddon and the rumored Deathsaurus. Hopefully, we'll see them soon.

    I know right, I swear @ibot said weeks ago that he was going to try and get pics of it. Hmmm, not sure what happened

    For Planet X, it looks like we have:
    FOC Megatron
    FOC Ultra Magnus (add-on? strange)
    FOC Ghost Starscream
    I've also seen a metallic version of their Grimlock.
    Anything I missed?

    If I may budge inn.. ...and this is more @Smirker I suppose...
    As much as the getting there is important in life knowing what you want once you do is just as necessary.
    Dreams help us achieve our goals, maybe they won't be up to standards, but do remember that 'in his failing, Alexander the great surpassed us all'.
    Just sayin' dreams needn't be realistic but they function as objectives, if we don't enjoy them when we finally get there... whats the point; even if they're not up to expectations.

    Getting to the point; isn't there anything you would do with a 'complete collection' (whatever that means to you). Is giving money to random sellers around the globe enjoyable or is it having your full-cast to play/re-enact/display/photograph/stopmotion more fun? Just start thinking of things you would like to do with a complete collection rather than being sad about not having much more to buy? All collectors have some degree of OCD the point is will you let the need to collect all or shopping addiction beat your love for tfs?

    For example. Somewhere in my subconscious one day I would like to make a huge diorama for all my tfs to live in. My dad was into model trains, but we moved often and he never managed to make a propper 'table'. Regardless he kept dragging this 1.50cmx2m wooden plank to all our houses. I'd love to set a table with bot and con hqs and fighting grounds etc..
    will it happen? mhhh not until I discover mass displacement in the small appartment we're inn now.. still..

    Okay, I'm totally in on people dropping slides in late. Spread the announcements out if they are like FOC Insecticons
