    Hey...vangelus...I feel like there’s something you need to know. Seee unlike RID15, the warrior toys in cyberverse are also hindered by dumb springloaded gimmicks. That starscream from the baltmatrix review where his waist spins around and his legs don’t move IS the warrior class starscream...

    The Mega Action Series stuff has been fantastic with the downside mainly being space. I'd love to own at least two more cons and bots to go with Prime and Megatron, but their sizes take up so much space. That said, they're very tailored to those that either really like the characters and don't need a transformation to have a great representation of them or want an as close to 1/12th scaled Autobot or Decepticon that they can find.

    Personally, given how I used to keep my bots displayed in robot mode only anyway, they're perfect for my current collection.

    The most disappointing thing about that Victory Saber is that whenever we inevitably get a Generations version that transforms, it’s gonna be so much more boring than this.

    I don’t buy much unofficial stuff anymore, but I will sell my soul to a company that makes a fully transforming version of Flame Toys Victory Saber.

    Also, on the Blast Off HFG, it's been theorized that it is tied to the Blast Off tooling, since we've only seen it with UW Bruticus and Computron.

    Nemesis Pax should have been based on Armada Sideways and you all know it.

    I wonder how often fans look at things like the new Evasion Prime and lament the money (sometimes extra money for 3P upgrades or reprolabels) they spent on the old one. I mean it's been way too long to top the torrent of various Powermasters, but the feeling can still happen.

    I can confirm that I'm a masochist for TF toys.

    Dangit Vangelus!

    You didn't mention how for some odd reason Dinobot's sword besides being unfortunately chromed

    ...it's also weirdly pink instead of silver like it was originally in the promotional photos.
