    Plus, given ML exists, this should have copied the articulation points from it.

    Well, scale... I never liked that Convoy and Car Robo were so oversized. I doubt we'll see a Diaclone version, but would be amazing if so. At that price, I would not want to add ToyHax or similar details and have to try to remove Autobot symbols, much less build a fleet. If the had been $20 or less, and have the trailor that opens for some compatability, I could see getting multiples.

    No way to do that at that size and construction. Not from pure die-cast. Also, there's the "design intent", where it's meant to be the G1 design in Hot Wheels materials and finish.

    Edit:
    Special supply delivery care of Kuma @ Booth:

    Next will be applying custom steel sheets to the floors/steps and beginning to plan LED strategies for under lighting the consoles and screens

    Here's a close up of the hubcaps applied to the Load Chambers wheels:

    And here are the runway lights that I've been DYING to add. I've installed them on both runways:

    It's mind blowing how inexpensive they were. That whole cache seen above was less in total than many current retail releases. Though I did order everything at once after 6 months of procrastinating. The process from order to international delivery was about 10 days total. Insane.

    And this just this one Booth vendor. Now I need to dig deeper.

    To be fair, by the last few years of the product line, this is basically what they were doing anyway.

    But those 1:60 WST Joes are ...compelling

    You know what's funny?
    I was looking at the Duke in a Sainsbury's a few weeks ago and it was reasonably priced but I figured the scale was out of whack...
    I just looked at Amazon and dang!
    Late tax strikes again.

    Some Target stores and Big Lots still have the World's Smallest Joe, TF, and He-Man mixed in with other similar WS toys. Try the trading card section of Target and near the front checkouts at Big Lots. Still not at all cheap, but a heck of a lot cheaper than Amazon, etc.

    Amazon is just eBay for scalpers at this point. I avoid Amazon for ANYTHING that isn't sold by Amazon directly or the manufacturing company. That downfall started polluting Amazon around 2017 and now it's just rampant. It's become even worse due to the explosion of AliExpress dropshippers who have ported their merch to Amazon in the same manner. If I find an item on Amazon that isn't sold by the sellers I mentioned, I go to AliExpress and get it cheaper.

    But, yeah. WST was shelf/peg warming for nearly a year or more at big box stores since at least 2020. I know I passed up that Duke and Snake-eyes months after months for over a year.

    Curious about bullet hand - who?

    Also - very clever backdrop. I had to zoom in super close to confirm that it wasn't a half dozen Pod Granders standing on end...

    I recently picked up a bunch of the Lightyear Hyperspeed ships on clearance at Target for $3.59 each. I saw these many, many times but was always waiting for them to go on clearance and don't know why Target took so long to do it.

    In looking them up and figuring out what I had/what was missing, I noticed that XL-08 doesn't seem to be available... anywhere. Was this one cancelled before being released? Any others from this line that were cancelled so I don't have to waste time chasing them down? Thanks!

    Caved and got the UFO car, pics soon-ish.
    There's loads of these btw, I've seen maybe eight different models so far including a pineapple helicopter.
    Should have got pics, forgot. :oops:

    :D 

    I need to see this. That is precisely the type of ridiculousness that's needed to occasionally lighten the mood.

    A question: What would you like to see that's 1/60 scale figure compatible that isn't related to Star Wars or Diaclone? What makes you think " Yeah... i'd like that to go along with my micro figures"?

    Said this before but a marvel universe micro line could be huge and span a vast range of environments and genres etc

    Also, MASK, bring mask back at micro scale and I'll buy the lot, bring it back at the OG scale and I'll most likely have to pass, some of those toys were massive.
