    Well, it's nice to be loved!

    HAH! If only I had the time and patience to do commissions! (I'm trying to keep-up with a backlog of personal projects as it is!)

    I'd highly recommend it. He looks incredible among his fellow Decepticons: a real leader!

    What, you mean, recreate one of my favourite scenes ever? ;) 

    I'll certainly try. Might be tricky as this mold doesn't have fingers to actually hold the Matrix (hence why it is on a chain above)!

    Yeah, thought some of the original paint apps/colouring might have given it away. The increased scale certainly didn't hurt with painting the details! :D

    You could use something to make him hold the matrix, I don't know what it can be, but it could be done.
    On a side note, have you considered in making a deluxe inner Thunderwing? Maybe with Triggerhappy's mold?

    I usually display mine with the Matrix balanced on top of his fingers, if that's any help.

    Thanks! I'm really happy with how he turned out, so I hope that shows!

    Yeah, the original figure definitely one of the highlights from the TLK line, but was even better suited to Thunderwing's organic design.

    I haven't, but I don't have much affinity for the inner bot (I don't think Thunderwing does either, he hardly ever leaves his Pretender shell)!

    I'll probably just temporarily fix it in place for any photos using Blu Tack... ;) 

    He's wearing it! It really brings out the single-minded insanity in his eyes! :eek:

    Hey, Hasbro! Can we get an off...
    ...wait, Hasbro is too stupid to do this.
    Hey, Takara! Can we get an official repaint like this? Seriously, I make a point of not buying movie toys anymore. But I would buy this if it was a real figure.

    They both seem to be missing a trick with the lack of Thunderwing repaints (TR Black Shadow, I'm looking at you here)!

    I can live with that. Maybe he'll be more IDW style, like the Titan Master they made?
