    I went into Target with the hopes of finding Topspin and Kup, and I did! Was so happy. Also, holy hell that Topspin is an amazing figure. I don't usually buy into the hype but in this case I 100% agree with the general consensus of him being fantastic.

    You'd think that, being the very end of the line, they'd give us crappy things for us to move on easily.
    But nooooooooo.

    A blast until the end.

    Yeah, the TR line has been amazing. I soured on the Generations stuff during Combiner Wars but TR has come back in a big way.

    The more incredible thing about TR, in retrospect, is that this background maple syrup has been here during the entire run.

    Really it's time for Pancackes of the Primes.

    I'm game for pancake!

    I got this lad out last night to just have a moment with him. I know a lot of people hate on him for thoroughly justifiable reasons but there really is so much he does right. For instance, I think that cannon is kind of beautiful, and sends me right back to the 1980's.

    Agreed. I like TR Galvatron alot. He really gets a bad rap for the one thing he does wrong (the mask gimmick) which is easily fixable w/a simple mod or 3rd party items.

    Hell, throw Octane's head on him, and his head on Octane and you have a better Galvatron and a Generations Movieverse Megatron that homages almost every version

    Yup, Galvatron still remains one of my biggest pleasent surprise of the line.
    I mean, I KNEW I'd love Lolfire, Sluggy, Blitzdude and many others, but I didn't expect to like Glavy very much.
    Only picked him because he and Sentinel (another underestimate fellow) were the only one EVER in some toystore I used to visit and i was still glad to see TF toys in it, enought to pick those two.
    And I was suprised. Really.
    He looks cool, big, and bad. He's fun. And honestly the mask thing is not really the problem. I can live with it. But it demands a Titan Master strong enough to support it, and it's not really the case. VERY early TR TM, and not the best one of those (not even mentioning the last of them, just seeing Slugslinger right now and THAT is how you do it).

    Anyway, I like Galvy. Not my fav, but again, even Overlord isn't, that tells a lot!

    And as a matter of fact I still want the LG Galvy (which I will have eventually), and I don't think I would buy one if that wasn't a really nice mold.


    Oh, they do. They so do.

    Thanks, they're mostly populated with leftovers from all of the Renderform upgrades I've done over the years.

    There were movies? I recently rewatched Prime on Netflix so that was still fresh in my mind.

    I had been using it on Laser Prime but after seeing windows6k's custom I purchased the Diac & Optimus Prime version specifically for use with the Rodimus Prime head.

    Try to focus on the trailer stickers, that may help. I'm too far gone for it to work for me.

    I'll go as far as saying he's one of my favorite Voyagers. Foot tilts and rockers in an era where some leader class figures don't have them. I do wish they hadn't forced a third mode onto him, but besides giving him a backpack, it doesn't harm the figure in any other way and the cannon mode is spot-on. I actually prefer his jet mode to Prime's jet mode. The mask is the only issue I have with him. Good idea with poor execution. I do have a third part helmet for him so that complaint is moot at this point. Overall I'm very happy that we got such good G1 Voyagers with TR. The Decepticons especially.

    Ok, did a quick mental "Top 16 of the year so far" and 13 of them are TR.
    It's true that I didn't buy a lot of 3P because moooney (and I'm sure the likes of Contact Shot or anything Iron Factory would be in my top 10 if I had them) but still, it's telling a lot!

    I let you guess who's number one.

    Got a Nautica from a boardmember here and threw her fans onto Arcee to see how it would look with a shortened hood. Love it. Hope someone can make a short hood for Nautica now!
