    Molds cost so much money to build. You want to get as much value out of them as you can, and run them until they start going out of tolerance or there's simply no longer a financially viable use for running them.

    Can you imagine how many times over the Siege Lambo mold must have paid for itself, versus some other figure that just sucked at sales, and never got a retool or recolor?

    I really love the POTP Leader play pattern. Very happy I didn't miss out on Star Convoy.

    I don't have a theme to this one -- I just wanted to line all these up to see how they look together.

    That’s a beautiful set up. I pose my PotP Optimus with PotP Rodimus, CW Ultra Magnus and Legends God Ginrai. I was suuuuuuper tempted to get Star Convoy too but I didn’t pull the trigger.

    I’m moving away from these guys and getting newer versions. I’ll always have a soft spot for them :)

    I call this group “Queens of Cybertron” and I still need Greenlight to complete the team. No, I won’t buy her from scalpers so I will customized one myself soon. F5462372-3546-471D-810A-C2F45BD0E884.jpeg

    I bought mine from ebay and Amazon. Just search for acrylic risers and then find sizes that work best for your displays.

    Amazon.com : acrylic risers
    Acrylic risers | Etsy

    Lots of good options and styles, not as cheap as you might hope or expect. But also nowhere near what wood and glass equivalents would cost ya :) 

    Does anyone know why this website modifies any Amazon link that I try to attach?
