    He has a few gems alright. Even watched the Convoy and it's amazing that they made a movie out of a 4 minute song.

    The Filmation line is a dream come true for me. Now not only can I buy Transformers that looked like they did on tv as a kid but I can now buy MOTU stuff like that too:

    Roll on Super7's first wave! Need dat Triklops, Teela and Man at Arms.....and eventually Merman's replacement.

    Also working on a Cheetara custom for this shelf:

    Did a double-take when I saw those yellow forearm arrows, yellow lights and silver biceps. Now I see that it's a fan colouring!

    Except I have a Galaxy J7, which uses android, and when I post to facebook, there is no problem.

    In on thread, I decided to do a screen shot of my pictures and that worked.

    It might have to do with the file type and size. My screen shots are smaller files than detailed shots my camera takes.

    I would have also accepted "Ian, freeze!"

    It's called vivid auto vinyl wrap. I believe the color was blood red? Can be bought be on Amazon. This is not an easy process. I had to disassemble his legs. Make a template. Cut the pieces out apply with my hair dryer. Use an exacto knife to carefully cut out the details. Also used my thumbnail and and toothpick to define the lines. If you're crafty then you shouldn't have a problem.

    Man, that is GLORIOUS! If I had the budget and space I would be all over the MOTUC line. Like @atomD21 , I can remember the first time I saw He-Man figures. I was 4, at friends' of my parents who also happened to have a son, and he had a handful of them in his room. My brain completely melted. "WHAT?! What is this stuff?! Who are these guys?!" Man, those were amazing times! I got the same feeling the first time I saw the first TF commercial in the spring of '84 advertising their Marvel comic. Stopped me dead in my tracks.

    Looove cartoon homage accessories. I'm sure if we ever get a Wheeljack+ he'll come with both the anti-hypnosis device and the immobilizer, both painted in more cartoon accurate colors like Sideswipe+.

    When they do V3 of OP you think we'll ever get the cartoon accurate coloring of his white thighs, stacks, gas tanks, etc.?

    They'll hopefully give us white thighs and pelvis, but probably keep the chrome gas tanks, smokestacks and grill. Possibly have optional parts like with Inferno/Grapple, although that would be quite a lot of optional parts. Even super toon-accurate releases like 27, 28, 30 and 39 still have a lot of chrome. Plus, we need to be able to recreate this:
