    Still need to track down 2 more Reflectors... I was hemming and hawing on the “toy accurate” pack -vs- the mainline release, but I think I came down on the ‘toon accurate (if they’d given the toy color pack individual heads I’d have been all over it)

    Just really have a hard time throwing down $20 for a sub-deluxe with no actual alt mode of its own.... (I mean, i know it’s got that “ship” mode... but really....)

    Honestly I’ve ended up with 6 of them (3 refraktor, 3 scrapface) and have been on the fence about getting the toy colored set

    It would be nice if the toy colored version also didnt look like garbage in camera mode.
    how they took such a simple great looking toy and made it awful is beyond me. I'd still buy them on discount for the robot modes, but at nearly 3x deluxe price? No way.

    I'm fine with how the camera mode looks, personally, but I do wish they had colored Spyglass's legs like Spectro's - it'd be inaccurate for robot mode, but would make the camera look a lot more solid (and match the G1 camera).

    Can anyone show me a size comparison of the Universe 2.0 lambo mold and Earthrise Grapple?

    :thumb :thumb :thumb  How did you make Crank case out of Roadtrap?

    The CW Jet version of Blastoff is my stand in for Fulcrum.

    If no one gets back to you soon I can... I have Grapple but haven’t cracked him open, but I have Uni2.0 Sideswipe on my shelf next to my home office desk.

    I removed the paint from the areas i wanted to paint. Painted the windows black. Spray-painted the torso gray. Drilled a hole in his head, painted the face. Modified TR Hot Rod guns for his back cannons.

    I wanted Cranky in that class size for some size variation amongst the Scavengers. He comes apart easily for customizing if you're up for making one for yourself :)

    That looks good enough to be 3P upgrade. But if I do my own I'm almost certain that Hastak will drop news about finally releasing their own Crankcase about 2 or 3 weeks later (hence SDCC2020 Online).

    Happy 4th of July to those who celebrate. I'll be staying indoors, out of the smoke, and trying to keep our smol doggo calm.
