    Slugslinger can't get here quick enough (but I went Takara Legends for him after the wave six announcement, so he won't be here until December).

    Paint it black and stick Clobber on there and you'd have a sorta-maybe Runamuck? Or perhaps not. I think Clobber might become my Nitro head, and maybe Brawn for Cogman?

    Sounds neat, I'd love to get my hands on the Thunderwing noggin for Nitro though (just in case failure in the polls has bumped him from TOTP)!

    In amongst a line full of exquisite transformations, a simply sublime one...

    And for a Jumpstarter too! Who would have thunk it?!

    Highly amused by his Suicide Seats too!

    If there's a Wave 5 restock at Kapow post-TFN with Payday this week I'll pretty much have to snap 'em up! The pull of 100% Official Wreckers is too strong!

    EDIT:

    I think we all knew this would happen...

    Rocket on the left is the one I bought at the LFCC 2 weeks ago, the other came with Yondu & Baby Groot which arrived this morning which was something of a surprise as it only left Asia on Wednesday.

    PAPY OPTI,
    Hope you're feeling better soon!

    So I decided to touch up CW Sunsreaker's rear end (I did get consent :p ), gave the rear wing some extra shiny and recreated Countach rear lights:

    And while I had the black paint out i decided to sort out CW Wheeljack, added black to the chest windows, forearms, crotch and a little bit on the toes...I also decided to make a v2 version of his rear 'wings'...IMO looks 100x better:

    There is a meteor shower tonight, hope to see some of the Perseids this year.
    I remember getting Dreadwing and Smokescreen for Christmas as a kid. He was an import, so for years I knew him as Ace Evader. Awesome name.

    why can't Funko Pops look as good as these?

    I get such a blast of nostalgia whenever I see the G2 Dreadwing. I had one when I was little'un. As far as I know, I think it's in the loft somewhere, along with G2 Seaspray, Ironfist, and the neon nightmare that was Turbofire... :lol

    you have G2 Seaspray? I remember a three pack in Woolworths with G2 Seaspray, Beachcomber, and Hubcap that my mum wouldn't get for me (bloody hell, auto correct predicted everything correctly after "my mum" :lol ), because I already had G1 Seaspray, and Hubcap. Never got Beachcomber until adulthood, and that's not the shiny green version. :)

    This would be even more appropriate if they'd used stealth bomber Megatron in the art....

    I definitely had one. It was all nice and chromed blue. The new TR Seaspray was amazing at reminding me of that old thing. I'll have to dig him out one day, if he's still up there, that is.

    I'm sure today is the longest day ever. But also pretty cool.
    Almost missed @incapable hulk. If you are still about and see me in the bar come over. Never enough time in the day. I'll be down there in a little while with some rowdy louts so anyone else spots me pop over. Too crazy lol

    I've taken many pics and blinded a few people with my camera. Will upload some next week when back at home and decent WiFi.

    I mean look at 'em! LOOK!

    Topspin makes Apex look like the Danny DeVito out of these twins!
    If you'd told me this time last year Hasbro would blow the Demolition Crüe out of the water, and do it making the Jumpstarters Headmasters to boot! I'd have thought you were mental but here we are!
    Now Dr. Wu or somebody please make me some hammers for the TR Jumpsters because I can't conscience selling the Crüe incomplete but I want my cover referencing ability maintained!

    I don't like Twintwist half as much as I like Geminus though.
