    Yeah, it's actually supposed to go a little below the bumps.

    Got my Re-ject. This is the last call if someone wants to trade me a black robot for this blue robot before I paint the blue parts black (and paint the face) to turn Eject into Rewind.

    Not transforming Ramhorn or Steeljaw, as I'll be selling these two. Getting a second set to keep as is in a few days. Anyway, these are for my DS Blaster. Of course they fit inside the chest better than DS's own tape. The FT tapes are all the same size, except thickness. Eject/ Rewind are the thinnest, then Ramhorn, then Steeljaw. And we are talking like half a mm difference each. So you can fit both Eject/ Rewind in DS Blaster's chest easily. One of those fits together with Ramhorn, kinda. Steeljaw will only fit by his lonesome. I don't really recommend putting either of the animal tapes with a second tape. Anyway, on to some pics!

    Fanstoys patern there doesn't quite match the cartoon. Bumps are too big and/or there's not enough space below to fit a decent size decal. It's a choice between a tiny decal or a bumpy decal. From a distance, bumpy wins in my opinion.

    Should we tell Bobby that his MMC tapes weren't in season 2?

    Or that they are out of scale? ;) 

    Edit: In all seriousness, I know that I have defended his style in the past, but for weeks now I have stopped watching Bobby's reviews and other content. Not only because of the repetitive and disrespectful comments he makes on his "Collection critique". (The episode with fellow member turbine027's collection was the worst.) I've also noticed that I don't understand or share some of his aesthetic choices anymore. His transformations aren't helpful either. I enjoy other reviewers more - not only big players like emgo316, but for example also the Chill review series by TMan978. That guy doesn't get enough credit. He takes his time to show you a figure and obviously doesn't need to get too egocentric. It's almost relaxing watching him handle TFs, unlike BSF. :confused:

    Received my tapes. Incredible little things, transformed without instructions, intuitive as hell. Insanely clever the way they figure out articulation in such a small package.

    lol@KFC.

    the cassettes look pretty good but I think the new KFCs are better. The FTs will give you a bit more consistent look with the set so I suppose it just depends on what you want.

    Oh, God. I’m sure this won’t be controversial. I haven’t seen it yet but lemme guess, it’s him complaining about how toon-accurate they are and how they won’t fit in his collection despite him paying $100 for them.

    Oh, I didn’t know that. It’s probably because of all the hate comments he gets, which by the way I didn’t mean to add to. I actually enjoy his reviews, I just don’t like him complaining about the same thing every time he buys a hyper toon figure.
