    Since I painted Kickback's wings, I had to match Shrapnel's horn things with the same paint.

    Just curious, which on the Dinobots do you think is the best standalone figure? I wondered about them since the clear intention is for them to combine, but do they work well as fun little desk toys on their own?

    In my opinion, Swoop looks like he’s going to be the best stand-alone by a country mile! (Though we’re haven’t seen snarl yet…) And, as always, your fav is probably gonna still be your fav at any scale :)

    Great pics all around!

    maybe a dumb question, but I just can’t seem to get my hands on Legacy Breakdown. Are there issues with him being in available in Europe?

    If we're just talking about the ones released currently, Slug and Grimlock are probably the most fun for desk toys. Swoop and Scarr look to be fun enjoyable figures by themselves too. Snarl hasn't been revealed yet so can't say much about him yet.
    Awesome picture. I like the perspective in it. Did you photoshop the tetrajets in it or are they on stands or something?
    Hey fun pics man. You've also just convinced me that Slicer would make a great villain/arch rival for Prowl(any Prowl really lol). I can't get it out of my head(canon) now lol.

    Thanks! They are on stands and it's all one shot, however I did use Photoshop to remove the stands, extend the road into the background, and add the starry sky. Here's the image before Photoshop:

    How did you get Prime’s “lights” to… light?

    That was done in Adobe Lightroom... I typically do all of the lighting effects (including bot eyes, etc.) using the brush mask tools in Lightroom and avoid going into Photoshop as much as possible. For Prime's headlights I put a brush mask over the the lights and boosted the exposure way up and added some blue overlay. I also used variations of that same technique on the car windshields, the tetrajet cockpits and their rocket flame effects.

    Here's an image sequence showing all the steps in the process - photo of the whole setup from my Instagram story, raw straight from the camera, after all Lightroom edits, after all Photoshop edits, and the final image after edits in Instagram:
