    Did another new update... but I thought I'd just show off the main thing from the update here in the thread.

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/996421-kre-o-lego-space-bridge-4.html#post12531090

    Basically what we have is a Soundwave alt mode build (made entirely out of LEGO, except for the front plate and the cassettes) -- which is designed to hold the cassettes (including the VHS tape) from the SDCC Class of 84 set. You can remove the back section and replace it with an accessory that lets you do a "Soundwave eject" type of gimmick.

    I love it! Might as well finally get involved in this thread on that note.
    During one of my more manic 'spend lots of money to feel better' periods I stocked up on Kre O and Halo Mega-Bloks, I still can't decide what to build but I do need a project. I was going to go for Darkmount from the Marvel comics but that kind of feels like I'm setting a trap for myself. I'll work something out and get a decent camera to share!

    I received my aoe wave 2 order today from ebay. I only got 5 blind bags. I got Wheelie (1), Skalor (1), Seaspray (2) and Sunstreaker (1). I just need Gears, Blackarachnia, Fuselage and Runamuck now.

    Gears, Fuselage, and Runamuck seem to be less common in the packs from what I've seen.

    I'm jealous I wish I could get the battle changers local as well as the warrior kreons and RID sets.

    I'm shocked there isn't more on Ebay.

    The $2 Kreons at 5-Below are hard to resist, especially when they restock. Fingers crossed they get other waves.

    Insecticon B-Team! It's... kinda odd how they coincidentally ended up looking like a weird technicolor clone of the regular Insecticon Trio.

    Big Thanks to Sideswipe1954 for helping me source the "Family Dollar" Megatron and Bumblebee cube's set.

    These sets contains random parts but with slight updates. Bad news for any people looking to get these to customize Kreons and swap pcs around with, they utilize the newer molds. They have also changed the mold on their 2x4 bricks which has a tighter fit then before. The Kre-o "O" stamped on the top is slightly smaller and no longer resemble an "O".

    I just ordered the Small Cube wave 1 set from Entertainment Earth. All I care about getting is Prowl and Ratchet.

    I've decided to repurpose the tiny block-headed Cyclopes as "Reedman." He might not be paper thin, but he works.

    Here's I think is my first contribution to this thread (I think) : Season 1 and Season 2 combiners!

    Yup, I picked them up last year but only got to around to assembling them this year.

    I'll complete the season 3 combiners when I have the time...X)
    Love this little fellas! I'm solely going to focus on G1 characters for this line! :)

    Is it just me, or do the Megatron and Bumblebee use the chest prints from last year's SDCC set?

    Yes they are the same chest. Though the class of set seems better quality and color (not mine with the autobot symbol though)

    I posted this on FB last week. My son made The Touch. He tells me he is basically the embodiment of the Matrix in Transformer bot form
