did you repaint his legs or remove the gunk somehow?
Can you explain this scene?
I'm not sure I want it explained....
New Video! The last Wreckers episode with the New Recruits (Guzzle, Pyro, Rotorstorm, and Ironfist)
Is that a Prime Guzzle or something? It's just on the tip of my tongue....
Dark of the Moon Cyberverse.
Checks out what?
You that said that CW Wheeljack was so underrated and you had CW Wheeljack as your profile pic.
And his signature.
I'm on mobile, So I didn't see it.
It says "unite warriors wheeljack is the best chug wheeljack made and will defend it as so."
In case anyone doesn't know, they're the same mould.
No, and I've watched the full run of Headmasters three times. It's just an out of context screen cap from google images.
I took this guy to have fresh pics after a while. I remember I bought the pack just for this redeco and sold the other figures.
I'm, pretty sure it's from Rebirth and not from Headmasters.
It was so... logical
Generation Selects Super Megatron is a pretty rad figure.....
First off, you're a person of taste.
Second, I'll share my experiences. I like the original release of Starscream over the Universe "show-accurate" one. To me, Starscream is grey and red, not white and red. The traditional toy colors with a fresh layout was a winner for me. Besides, my copy of the Universe release was floppy as heck. Or the Henkei version if you must have the cartoon colors/layout. But avoid the Universe release.
For the most part, I'd recommend tracking down the retail releases - I'd assume the Botcon Seeker set is still excessively expensive, so you'd be better off that way.
You might want to pick up some replacement guns for these guys - the giant launchers bump into the wings, meaning you have to move the wings out of the way for shooting poses. Of course, I've never bothered, but it is a consideration.
A word of warning - the lower legs on my Thundercracker have loosened up a little so the seam has widened very slightly. Probably the result of how much the mold has been used. I was able to help it by tightening the screws slightly but it's something to watch.
Thanks for the taste comment.
Let’s see, uh, I’m pretty okay with the big launchers because they launch, but if they bother me in hand I’ll look into replacements. Interesting about the loose Thundercracker. Since I’m expecting to mostly obtain loose samples I’ll ask about their legs before purchase, or just tighten them myself.
On to Starscream, I really like the Classics deco’s homage to the prototype F-15A. But I also like the classic cartoon stripe layout. My solution is to just get both because I like jets.
Have you encountered looseness in Generations Dirge? I read that he was known to have some mould degradation problems.
The Botcon seeker sets have some interesting figures, particularly Dirge with Ramjet wings and whatever’s going on with Thrust. The only one I’d really be interested in is the Sunstorm.
Thanks for all the advice, it’s really helping me assemble my buy list.
