    Thanks and your reward is 2 more questions.

    Do you add any post production to the shots and would a 12mp camera be better than a 20mp phone camera?

    Megapixels don't mean much for a quality image once you're past a certain point (unless your end destination requires incredibly high res). The lens and sensor on the dedicated camera would be superior to the mobile phone.

    Does anyone know if the missiles on the Amazon launchers for Prowl are removable? After having Dr. Wu's crummy set I opted for the Amazon ones and wanted to change the rockets for gatling guns but they're really tight. I didn't want to risk breaking it if its not removable.

    I've transformed Prowl, Smokescreen, and Red Alert several times, but just realized yesterday I haven't transformed Sideswipe and Bluestreak since I got them. I set about correcting that this morning, putting both into alt mode. Holy crap. It was like having new toys! Felt like Christmas! If you've never transformed one of your figures or haven't done so in ages, I highly recommend it.

    Occasionally I get one of my figures in a pose I like so much that I leave them in bot mode for months, but I always cave eventually, just can't keep my hands off them :)

    Do you print your own small Autobot symbols or did you purchase them?

    The symbols are the standard clear reprolabels from the big sheet.

    They are not, the chrome and black plastic are glued together.

    After a year of pushing him off for new figures, I finally have MP-10b. Decided to take a photo of all my MP boxes. Only box missing is the one I sold from Hasbro MP Optimus. Can't wait to add WJ, Bee, UM, Soar, Sever, and Star Saber.

    Those boxes, where do you store them all?
    I have a similar collection, and they take up a lot of room

    Except for Scoria and YOTH OP, they all fit in 1 45gal Sterilite container with room to spare for WJ and Bee. I'll pobably ditch the Thundercracker box if it makes enough room for UM. Then I'll have to get another 45gal for everything after MP-22. I probably won't keep YOTH or the Fanstoys boxes either, but will hold on to them for a year or so 'just in case'.

    Great solution, then into the loft or basement I assume.
    Scorias box has some nice artwork and I doubt ill get rid of that, I'm considering dumping yoth primes box since I repainted yoth its kind of redundant now anyway.
