    I also have fond memories of watching Iron Chef with my family. We did it every week for a long time.

    I went on a hike with my family, so i thought it would be a good idea to take some outdoor shots:

    After fiddling with Starscream more i have mixed feelings about him. In robot mode he has solid joints, decent articulation, good looking overall.
    His jet mode doesn't look to bad either. The underwing is a bit bulky but other than that I like ot. The transformation is interesting but a pain to pull off first time. There's also alot of painted places that get rubbed together during transformation which is annoying.
    The paint itself is great. The colors contrast great with each other. But personally I was never a big fan of Starscreams deco in general.
    Overall hes an ok figure. The mold itself is fine but its the paintwork that doesnt do it for me. Ill probably keep this guy until the repaints come. 20210410_115450.jpg 20210410_115636.jpg 20210410_120753.jpg 20210410_120836.jpg

    Wheelie is a much more small character. Therefore, people don’t remember him as much. Plus, conceived racial discrimination is linked to bay’s Skids and Mudflap. I personally don’t believe this, since the actors worked together with it. (And I believe one of them was black.) Nevertheless, there will always be people with negative feelings towards them.

    Cool, I was wondering if Buzzworthy had more stuff! Bee and Barricade would make sense, if it’s a reissue of clunker Bee with the weathering and Frenzy is included I might pick that up.
    Awesome work! I know it’s a small thing, but I really like the silver scratches and chips around the chest vents.

    IDK 60$ for 2 deluxes and a small mini fig of Frenzy doesn't sound right. I think it will be the Bumblebee final battle with Beetle Bee, Carkick and Jet Shatter.

    Is it just me or has Buzzworthy Bumblebee still never actually been given an official announcement?

    That's the price in CAD, JTPrime mentioned that the price point in US dollars was equivalent to 2 deluxes.

    It just proves how last minute it was for Hasbro most likely due to 2020 events.

    Oh... I missed that. Yeah, Bumblebee v. Barricade with Frenzy sounds about right.

    He looks amazing but I wonder if he could look even better with the red parts near to the wings painted white.
    This starscream reminds me to the SS38 because he has some pieces on the "backpack" wich make the silhouette look a little weird, but with a different color those pieces could differentiate more the backpack from the robot and look better.

    Opened up DOTM deluxe Optimus last night

    This is my first experience with this figure, and it's pretty fun! I like the weapon, as silly as it is, and the transformation is really enjoyable. I particularly like spring-loaded head reveal when going from truck to robot mode. The way the windows tilt for a more accurate look is pretty neat as well. I think my only gripe is that he can be kind of tough to stand, mostly because his feet are a bit on the small side

    Getting this guy also now means that I have an Optimus figure from each of the films' toy lines (in-between lines such as HFTD not included)

    Those blue pieces on the shoulders are actually meant to be stood up. They have those shoulder "spike" things molded into the underside of them.

    I know that it'd be nicer to get new characters instead of Bumblebee again, I really hope we get a new High Octane Bumblebee. I'm hopeful though because it seems like the demand for him is high.

    It will be Evasion OP, Knight OP, Octane Bee, and Stinger Bee. No Hound or Crosshairs for you.
