I have a separate section for 'Expanded Universe' stuff - e.g. Sunstorm, Tigertracks etc.

I'm going to set another one up for the black repaints, too.

Yeah, that's the big kid in me that likes knowing there's a great toy sitting under the tree, but then I am a grown adult collecting Transformers... (I just worry about the day my kids outgrow toys and look at their dad with disdain for still collecting them.)

Anyway, roll on Christmas Day and Smokey! I hope Wheeljack is out for my birthday in March (although I doubt he will be), and I *really* can't wait to see Bumblebee... I'm going to be going as crazy as Lazerwave with Wherljack at that point.
That's one thing that I'm not a fan with now, as that I have to inspect anything I get now before I do anything. Usually, that's fine, but in instances like this, once it comes in the door, I gotta make sure it's staying here. The last thing I want is to unwrap something and then discover two hands or something.

Black Convoy is the main MP this time around, but Streak managed to arrive as a bit of a surprise from a friend I've not heard too much from Metroplex out of the box, so I've left him sealed up. I'll probably be in the minority here, but Metroplex is going with my MPs. I dare say that it's the closest we'll ever get to one. He's just a tiny bit of a deviation from G1, but there's enough Studio Ox in him to be worthy

Is it a 1:1 slavish G1 "Masterpiece"? No, of course not. I do think that it looks "G1" enough and it's not too much of a deviation away from the G1 design.

I will say that I quit frequenting the "Cool Stuff" thread a bit.

That is my only gripe with the MP line - that QC can be spotty. I had an MP Frenzy with a giant scratch down its face and an MP Prowl with a huge chip in its hood (which fortunately both got replaced) among other minor issues on other figures, so I couldn't just hand Smokescreen to my wife for wrapping without checking it first, as I'd be hugely grumpy on Christmas Day if I opened it only to find it needed replacing. Fortunately it looked good as far as I could see.

I've been wondering how he'd fit with the MPs given that he's surely going to be the biggest Metroplex we'll get. He's not one I could get away with ordering and hiding away so that the wife didn't notice Yet Another Transformer, though...

And here's a group pic with the Season 1/2 Lambors thrown in too

You'd be surprised! I snuck metroplex in and got away with it for several months before my wife caught on. Only after my buddy was dropping off a TRU MP Soundwave for me and pointed him out just as she walked in room, "when did you get that guy?" "Oh he's been there a while honey". And she left it at that, thankfully what also helps my cause is she avoids our home office as much as possible, she says it's overwhelming, that it gives her anxiety. Which makes it easier to sneak my recent MPs into the mix and not get 20 questions.
They were cruel, they were ignorant
They were beauty, they were kind
They were patience, they were virtue
They were crazy, they were mine

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the first notifications of a new Metroplex state he was going to be a Masterpiece? I think the Takara or the SDCC with the better paint apps would fit in fine with MPs. The standard retail version could stand for some repro labels.
"Such heroic nonsense!!!"

Either that or Christmas socks. I hate Christmas socks.
Well I give the list along with links to all the sites they are available some are released others are not in that case they just wrap a picture of whatever it is.

Plus I've got movies and games at Amazon that people can buy off of, I think I only update my wish list once a year in November. I understand your situation everyone has got it different I know I just enjoy the surprise of unwrapping something.

I understand the list (telling them what you want) but do you have to know what was purchased?


Still waiting on my Smokescreen's one from Captured Prey and the other from Robot Kingdom, both birthday gifts and looks like neither will make it by Christmas.
Is there blue text here ^^^^ If YES ----> Blue text = Sarcasm
