    Sorry for the double post, but I took some shots of 17+ to show that his paint job isn’t always bad (mine is almost perfect) and I ended up taking quite a few photos! So nice to have a Prowl with tight joints again.

    I hope it’s made of plastic and painted. Why they haven’t done a Black Ironhide and a Deepcover for that matter is beyond me. Maybe when they have too wide of a gap in releases will we seemore Diaclone repaints. I’m also wondering why Cordon is MP-42 instead of MP-39C. I can look at Delta Magnus and Primal for that one but I’m just curious.

    So reprolabels for MP-17 and you swapped the doors from MP-17 onto Mp-17+? Also MP-17 gun with MP-17+? Any thing else you did?

    Nice! Photos of Bluestreak please haha

    I put in an order for Ocean Labels as well as Reprolabels for Prowl, and then I also found this set on TFKingdom

    Masterpiece G1 Prowl Sticker Sheet

    I'll report back on all the differences once they've arrived. Reprolabels is already here and they're really nice, super well-made, but I'm not a fan of the shininess. I put the chrome siren part on already though :thumb

    Man Prowl’s been getting a lot of love lately, huh?

    Still will never grow tired of this glorious bastard:

    I wish more MPs had ‘opening’ panels for Ratchet to repair:

    Maybe he was talking about the long wait for MPM6?

    Nah, he's a G1 collector only (not even BW).

    For G1 MP fans check out the video, it's always nice to see a collection so well displayed:



    Love it! Pure nostalgia.

    Hurry up and announce a V3 Starscream TT before I buy back an MP-11.


    In other news, I believe I have @Dean ML, @Arie and a few others to blame for my most recent purchase - just put in an order in for MP-11NT THRUST BABY

    Gotta get ready for this scene after all, am I right?

    First MP purchase since paying for 17+ back in February. What a drought!
    I'll probably pick up Dirge too, if/when he goes on sale at Kapow again (Thrust is only £79.99 right now).

    He will look so good on the shelf besides MP-36 and MP-29+ while I wait for 13+ and V3 Starscream to be announced :) 


    Anyone else taking advantage of the G1 lull to play catch-up?

    Dirge is the best in terms of quality out of the three Coneheads. Thrust is my favorite but you'll have to do some minor alterations to make him less floppy.

    I know what you mean. A V3 Starscream and company would be more dough I'd shell out but I'd find some way to justify it. The lull did allow me to buy +Prowl since I already have BW Megatron and +Wheeljack paid off. I'm caught on ever MP except Loudpedal and Toy Primal. I'm not trying to buy those two at the moment. May do Loudpedal next year but only if he hits Road Rage prices. I'm looking at FT and XTB stuff because I need more combiners.

    Does any one have both primals?

    How does the toy version compare? Ive found a deal and am sorely tempted, mostly for the battlemask to be honest, im not a beastwars fan at all, but i really like Shadowpanther (with the mask). And am far far more into the repaints and the diaclone/new/unknown Bots being released than the more classic characters right now.
    But the 'fur' paint seems amazing on primal...
    Thoughts opinions please?

    I’m a fan of BW. And both paint jobs have superb merit. Being that Shadowpanther is technically a toy paintjob perhaps toy primal might go better with him in my opinion. But again. I think both primals look stellar.

    Awesome news, @Sam ! Really happy for you as I really think you'll enjoy him. He cuts the coolest silhouette of the jets and his deco is as evil looking as Skywarp's! Can't wait to see your in hand shots, brother!

    I should have no trouble doing some minor mods, I think I'm well used to it by now. I'm already eyeing changing his Decepticon insignia to cartoon ones ;) 

    Loud Pedal looks pretty sweet, especially that purple glass against the glossy black. I think you could also have a lot of fun with him in your comics - did you read his bio?

    Soundwaves Oblivion: Transformer Toy Archive: Masterpiece Loudpedal MP-25L

    He's actually a musician and the Microchange Blaster is his 'portable media playback device'. He even has a backstory with Exhaust.
    I understand that you'd like toon characters to come first, though :thumb 

    Yeah, I'm well prepared for handling the MP-11 mould, I know of its floppiness, of its looseness, and its difficulty in posing the legs just right, but I still kinda missed it hah.

    Since I stopped at Ramjet I also look forward to seeing how TT finished off the Coneheads. I know a V3 Starscream doesn't automatically guarantee Coneheads, so these guys could very well be the best we ever get. Their faces and the new parts they made (the hips, the shins) to make them more toon accurate are certainly a nice touch. They never had a whole lot of characterisation, it'll just be nice to have some background Decepticon grunts.

    I don't know if I'd pick up the Insecticons, but I'd definitely love to see Reflector, and it's great to see him get some love in the Siege line.


    Anyway, not picking up Cordon, so my next pre-order is finally the ultimate repaint of this beast:

    Can't wait :bay

    I just got the original Prowl with Reprolabels and the missile launchers. May as well add to the love for this figure! I used to have Smokescreen, still a great mold. 20181012_103427~2.jpg 20181012_104426~2.jpg 20181012_104326~2.jpg 20181012_105317~2.jpg
