Well I wasn't about to sculpt some new armour (or go through the fodder bin) when I've got pieces that could be added, that won't impede transformation into shuttle mode and more importantly saves me time.

I got Chromedome last night.
It took me a while to break down and buy him. He is so... ugly. Even my wife, who loves my figures, thinks he is ugly.
Yet, I was able to explain to her how he has a charm about him. In contrast to Arcee, who is sleek and pink, or Chromium, who is a tron bike... Chromedome has a gritty look to him. He has that blocky look many of us fell in love with from G1 as a whole. His Earth tones and scheme, combined with my limited knowledge of his IDW character being a sort of detective or Private Investigator really gives him a "Columbo with a laser rifle" look and feel.
You really have to be careful woth his legs and feet though. At least I do on mine.
If his foot and leg do not pop in perfectly, then the toe sticks put and ge doesn't roll correctly and I have to realign everything.
In some ways, I kind of like adding that to my imagination of his character. "My daned T-joint is acting up", causing him a dely as he tries to fix the jam and get back into his alt mode.
a 3rd party company really needs to make that add on armor for Sentinel.
Read through a lot of MTMTE and I bet you'll develop a real fondness for Chromedome right quick.
Love him so much!
Oh, i am sure I will. I have read his entry in the TF wiki, and that was a selling point to me. I can't wait.
It still doesn't change the fact that his design is unappealing upon first impressions.
I received LG-63 Megatron G2 yesterday. Excellent repaint based on Hero Megatron G2 (Mi first Megatron figure)
Is that Sky Shadow's body?
A figure I sometimes cannot put down. This figure looks fantastic, plays really well, and is a joy to take pictures of. Glad I double dipped. This figure makes me happy that I collect and cannot stay on the shelf for too long.
No it's Sentinel's transector. He looked.... different in the comics. That being said, Sky Shadow would be excellent for Apex Armour Sentinel Prime, even has a spot to mount an arm blade.
I cant believe they made a new Savage/Noble. It’s improbable and surely impossible, but I’d love a more show-accurate update.
I've been thinking a lot about the rumours around the IDW comics coming to an end, and what the comics have meant to me. I think one of the really great things that the Roberts/Barber era brought us was reltionships. Some romantic, some not, but all added a depth to the characterisation in these comics. So, this is the start of a little photo series.
The Gloaming (#16) is easily one of my favourite ever issues of MTMTE/LL. Rewind's recording to Chromedome was beautifully written and presented so well. Getting both these guys, within a wave of each other, was one of the highlights of Titans Return.
As someone who pretty much hates the comics, it's interesting reading why someone else loves them.
So, while customizing my LG-50, this happened:
It took some work. But I got it covered. Fixed the crookedness.
To anyone with Legends G2 Megatron, how much would you recommend him? I've got G2 Prime, and Megs would look pretty damn nice, in my opinion at least. I don't have Blitzwing, so I'm unaware of the mold is a must have.
