    He’s definitely no Cyclonus but I really quite enjoy Metalhawk!

    On the hunt with my 9yr old this past Tuesday and he found Needlenose. Really glad he did. What a great version!

    Skyquake finally arrived today and surely I must have something TF'd wrong with the shoulders? They just flap around unless you swing the shoulder pads super low... instructions are terrible as usual, but that can't be right, can it? I have the wheel nosescone super snug at the waist, and the wing section is slotted into the backpack quite well too.

    Went looking around on YT and found a helpful bit in this video:

    Ok fellow fans… I’m looking into an upgrade for legacy lio prime. Has anyone purchased the Tim heada upgrade kit? Quality? Fit onto the figure itself?
    Any recommendations for another kit?
    I’m looking at this one so I can not have the lion legs hanging off the bot forearms ( yes I know it’s animation accurate but I’m not a fan of it)

    I also posted this in the Beast wars appreciation thread to get more input. Thanks

    Did some work to separate my doubled of Acraphook and Crashbar. Need to come up with names for them too.

    So bad news for Canadians.

    We got word from Gamestop Canada that because of financial problems, they will not move forward with the next wave of Legacy Evolution. Don't know if it qualifies for the rest of Evolution. Going to have to find an alternate solution.

    Hey I´m a bit lost about Legacy series and looking for advice...

    I have the original Optimus Prime Armada toy, and now seeing the Megatron Armada Legacy I´m thinking about buying it, but I think it´s going to be a bit smaller than the Original Optimus right? So I´m not sure if I should buy also the new Optimus Armada or if it´s even worth it having the original one... What do you think? My first impulse is to buy both and a few more but I don´t really like to have duplicated figures of the same character version.

    Ooo, I'm still waiting on my Crashbar preorder to ship so I can't verify it for myself, but it looks like you could stick Scraphook's spiked spare wheel on the end of one of Crashbar's saddlepack guns to to get the Junkion version of Rhinox's chain gun.

    You can use either figure's wheel accessory. Only one spins though.

    Well if you don't like armada prime from legacy you can always resell it. Might loose some money there but if you don't get it and want it later you'll have to deal with scalpers which is a far bigger loss

    Yeah, I buy some figures that I'm not sure of now and again and just resell if I wind up not liking it. I may lose a few bucks, but I just chalk that up to paying a "try it" fee.
