    If you look real close there’s a case of Forager to the right.

    Man, it's good thing I'm semi-patient. Ordered through Baba also. Also was one who got a coupon from them and reassurance it'll be okay. Crossing fingers.

    Guess I should have thrown out any idea of vocabular coherence for that one, haha.

    Ugh. He's gonna' make me wait, isn't he? Because I didn't pay the full balance way back in like March or whenever he sent that email. I'm not going to be in the first batch and now I might miss out entirely. I'm really starting to not enjoy this hobby.

    I ordered one for a friend. If only one becomes available then I will lose a friend but I'll have $220 back in my bank:p

    Received news from my retailer that I'm part of the first batch. They've been pre-sold-out now of their second batch and since I was super late with ordering mine, I thought I'd have to wait a month or two after it's initial release. I'm SUPER stoked now!

    A lot of expression in animation comes from the eyes alone. Part of an assignment I had to do a few years back on an art course was a series of expressions using only the eyes. Being expressionless can still contribute to the character though - I think of it like a poker face. I think giving Prime a face plate was such a good inclusion simply because as a leader it's an integral part of keeping ones emotions under the surface. And yes! Grimlock certainly makes up for his lack of expression in his alt mode.

    Cardboard print out and blue-tac?

    You know what though... if FT produced a set of addition face sculpts that came on a sprue for all their releases I'd definitely buy that.

    Kind of like this... but with additional face
    sculpts for all their figures. Pre painted of course.

    The last remaining box... lost to the gravitational field strength of planet Warehouse, destined never to reach the light of Cybertron!


    And on that note, will Lupus SEVER get a reissue?
