    Gotta feel bad for all those TR figures who put in work for their glory only to have the "Best of the Line" title stolen at the last second by a C-team retool.

    they're both so tempting but i can't get over the headmaster thing. at least with blurr it's easy to mod away but iirc kup's would basically require rebuilding half the toy for the head to fold away, right?

    I think most of my favorites from TR are just simple face-swapped recolors, not even slight reworkings (still love ya, Grotusque).

    Case in point, Metalhawk.
    and Quake

    If I had the money, I'd have at least 4 Scourges and 3 Sweep headmasters from Sharkticon packs.

    As it stands, I have one Takara Scourge and a bunch of Hasbro Scourges with hands, legs, and feet from his toolmate Hasbro Highbrow from a massive discount deal I got awhile back. (Donated the Highbrows with the swapped Scourge parts to Goodwill.)

    Yes, I just got my hands on them both from BBTS and there are no regrets here on my end. They are beautiful!

    So the first time I heard someone say they liked Sky Shadow better than Overlord, I thought they were crazy, because the mold is CLEARLY meant for Overlord, right??? But then I got both of them, and I began to see it.

    So, given the Toy of the Year recommendations included MetalStorm preferring Sky Shadow over Overlord, I thought I'd do a breakdown on why.
    Reasons why Sky Shadow is more enjoyable than Overlord:

    -The shoulder-guns in Sky Shadow's jet mode sell the combined vehicle mode as a mobile fortress, instead of just a jet strapped to a tank. Overlord's shoulder-thingies don't have this effect.

    -Sky Shadow's jet mode half connects more securely to the tank half with a clip instead of Overlord's ... chest hugging.

    -Sky Shadow has peg holes on his arm allowing him to have an arm cannon, a claw, or anything else you can plug in there - Overlord's shoulder pegs don't have the same level of play.

    -Overlord's jet-shield is much larger, and thus unwieldy, and its peg has landing skis around that it prevent it from plugging anywhere but into Overlord's shoulder and its designated jet mode position. Sky Shadow's piece, however, is smaller and can fit as an arm shield, tab onto the gun, or even be a laser gun itself in his hand with a little imagination.

    -Sky Shadow's gun is more visually interesting because it's not one single color, and doesn't have paint run off when you plug it into the tank.

    -Sky Shadow's jet mode has multiple little parts to adjust, with the shoulder-cannons, the hinged cockpit, and tail fins, whereas Overlord is basically "lay flat, plug in jet half,' which lead to Sky Shadow delivering a more satisfying transforming experience.

    -At least on my copies, Sky Shadow's jet cockpit opens WAY easier than Overlord's.

    And that is why Sky Shadow is more enjoyable to play with than Overlord.

    I'm thinking about selling my LG Sixshot but kind of want to switch the faceplates and keep the more detailed Headmaster... would anyone who doesn't care about the Headmaster gimmick be interested in that? Not selling anything here just want to gauge interest.

    Grotusque arrived today and he's better than he has any right to be.

    Any good ideas of what to do with the Scorponok head? (please don't ask to sell it to you) At one point I was willing to allow Scorponok to steal this body, but I may just keep him in beast form which kills that idea.

    I've seen someone use an adaptor to attach the head to Iron Factory Lordscorpion, their Scorponok who is about deluxe sized. It looks pretty nice if that interests you.

    My six year old saw me posting Transformer pics on here and told me he wanted to post some of his that he received for Christmas. So he posed these for me:

    It's an action shot of Bumblebee ducking Kickback's backhand punch "matrix" style.

    Nice! None of these made it that low around me. I bought them at $3.48 and then at $2.48, couldn't wait to see if they would go lower and gamble that others wouldn't buy them.
