Huh, bigger than I thought they'd be
Just a quick shot of yesterday's arrivals (well, and some others in the background)
Blimey, can't have been easy finding Ordin these days, grats on that. Also, it's nice to see God Ginrai with the comic headpiece. I don't care of it's not cannon, it looks chunky and awesome god damnit!
Ordin was just a lucky eBay find. Robot Kingdom also just randomly had SG Godbomber in stock the other day too. Now I gotta hunt for a Purple Power Baser.
I really like the Marvel head, too. Gives him a distinct look.
Now you just need to replace Trailbreaker
Looking good bud! Hunk really make Brawny look dated. Crazy how far we've come over the years.
Edit - it would be interesting to see all the first versions of mp characters we've had stood next to the latest. Similar to the fashion you'd did with Brawn
There is a thread for that! comparison thread
Although I don't mind some nice 3P comparison pics in this thread as well. The Comparison Thread is often all the versions so if you're just looking for first to most recent nicely posed together then this would be a great place to add them.
Thanks very much. Once my KO MP Hound arrives I'm going to do some before and after group shots to compare my set up now with what I had a few years ago. I think I'm going to ultimately stick with the Badcube Trailbreaker as I really like the alt mode and face. It was easy to swap out Mp 11 with the DS version but I'd be loathed to part with both Brawny and Willis.
Did you photoshop the damage effects from MS Optimus onto TE Optimus?
I used little bits of black sticker cut up and silver sticker with black marker pen in the middle.
My two MP-44KOs. Switched the chrome parts over to the silverpants version and stuck the comic head onto the "leftovers." Silver/chrome will eventually be my MP44+ toy version.
[Edit] I was pleased to find that MP-44 balances so well that he can actually sorta' pull off the old box art pose from G1 Optimus.
Well now that I go back and look it's obvious but yeah, it had me fooled before. Well done!
Peace through tyranny.....
One last piece to the jigsaw to go. Poetic that he was my first ever Transformer
Well, now I want an evil Scamper.
"Quite air humping in my general direction, silver shorts!"
"Uh, uh... Make me, uh."
"I'm trying to pose stoically!"
"And I'm trying to pose... sexily."
"That's not even a word!"
If you have the room (financially and spacially), perhaps you can keep the older figures on the shelf in alt-mode. It might look good seeing occassional alt-modes displayed!
Personally, I still love my BadCube Brawny! And I think his alt-mode can't be beat!
The same goes for FansToys Willis! What a fantastic representation of an old military Jeep (in glossy bright green?)!
While I don't have XTB's Aegis, I do own MMC's Teraegis and XTB's Paean. I love them both... but absolutely dread their transformation. I kinda wish I would've bought two of each.
It will be interesting to see what happens whenever FT releases their Blitzwing, Hoist and Trailbreaker.
Will eBay become overloaded with various old versions of MMC/XTB/KFC/DX9 figures.. like an SPCA inundated with unwanted dogs after they graduate past the cute puppy stage?
Of course its a rhetorical question...
But, for as long as I have some available space, I hope to keep the older versions of any upgraded bots in alt-mode.
...and one more Brawny because I just can't get enough.
Rough day for Starscream
Well those pics have made it that bit tougher to sell Brauny! I wish I had the space. I'm even thinking of parting with MP-36+ as I already have MP-36 and Apollyon. I've also bought the MP-44 ko while also having TE-01 and MS-01 Primes. Three Optimus Primes is too much but I'd find it difficult to part with any of them. I could add more shelves but my wife would Hadouken me!
Yes. Three Primes. That's crazy. Who would have three Primes?
.... Yeah, I've got MP01, MP10, TE01, two MP44s, and that's just my MP Primes. And yes, I'm crazy.
You say that like it's a bad thing!
Last time I counted I had 27 Primes of various incarnations. It's probably close to 40 now. And that's with only double-dipping twice (MP10 + YotH, both PE-DX10s), unless you count OSKOs as double-dipping.
