    One of my favorite gimmicks, accessories, whatever you want to call it, of the past several years has been the inclusion of blast effects. I've greatly enjoyed these little plastic blasts and explosions as they increase the playability of the figures and really help give some life to battle scenes. It's great that the effects pieces are even spread out across the various lines from the WFC Trilogy, to Cyberverse, and even Masterpiece figures.

    So I wanted to see more of everyone's use of effects blasts, whether they be official Has/Tak releases or not. Let's see some crazy battles!

    Here are a few of mine.

    Blast effects should never go away.
    I have a decent collection that includes some from Marvel Legends and Star Wars Black Series that mesh well with the Transformers ones.
    Here's a few pics. I'm including some Diaclone Reboot, just because:

    Blast effects are awesome, a shame they kind of disappeared this year, maybe Legacy will bring them back again.

    I forgot even the RED line gets some blast effects. And I certainly agree they shouldn't go away. I'd love some more variety in styles and colors.

    What kind of monster would attack such adorable creatures in the glorious patch of clustered Paopu Fruit that they found?

    Bandai effects for 30 minute missions have 3mm pegs. They do come with 5mm-ish adapters but are annoyingly oversized. Need to file down the outer diameter in order to avoid getting stuck in TF 5mm ports (and breaking them to get them out).

    Anyhow...

    I really wish I had more blast effects than the ones from Sky Lynx and Slitherfangs, but they just don't include them in anything I want.
