    Had a little fiddle with the hue in Lightroom, and I think this is closer to the real colour:

    Pretty good, mostly us looking at Liokaiser’s amazing MISB samples and Maz’s fabulous photography.

    Oh and Turbine27’s camera is going crazy :D

    Do you have the New Year Special Red Alert? I thought about buying it but decided I wasn't going to pay over 20 dollars for a different card and decals.

    Also I really need to remember to finally buy myself a Dreadwind and Darkwing at some point.

    I bought Dreadwind and Darkwind last year and still regularly transform and admire them, a perfect self contained set of transformers: Great looking in both modes, interesting and satisfying transformations (even if darkwing does have plane on back but somehow it doesn't bother me) and dissimilar for each, an unlock gimmick with the cool little powermasters, great construction (ok, if you have broken unlock tabs that's something that could have been avoided in the design) and of course the superb combined plane mode with the cool extra of the combining guns to pad out the look. I gave mine a good clean and part dismantle where needed to clean thoroughly and got some reprolabels, they now look superb and are sat in my list of top ten transformers period.
