    I think he’s at least considered from what I remember.


    I don’t know why we’re getting reissues of toys that don’t need them (WWII Bee and Car Shatter) rather than the ones that do (Long Haul, Ironhide). I was lucky enough to get into the Devastator game early enough to get all of them at retail, but some people having missing combiner pieces is something that sucks. I mean, I was sitting around with 2/5ths of a CW Bruticus for a while. Just not having the missing piece really sucks.

    Probably to encourage people to buy the set. It’s still available after all.

    You guys mind if I do a bit of a customs showcase? I have been doing a lot of Movie customs over the past six months, and while some are still WIP, I wanted to share them. Something I don’t often do.

    07’ Hound(WIP) and Slingshot


    F15B41C1-5A6D-42B9-A638-FC14D92C1531.jpeg
    Dragstrip and what was supposed to be a WWII desert camo Megatron. Since he looks more skeletal the desert themed, I didn’t add any Iron Crosses and the project is in limbo.

    -A custom seeker “Steelslinger.” Meant to be like a knight. Didn’t like how he turned out, subject to “recycling”.

    EF48A81C-4DF1-471E-AFF3-6B240D958C9F.jpeg
    -Inferno. A massive scratch build that required heavy re-engineering of base mold. Still not done. Has completely original head, new hands, and legs.

    -Breakdown started out as G1 colors “Cobalt Mirage”. Ended up looking more like Breakdown to me so thats who he is now.

    67D143B7-E360-45DF-B0A8-0799536B4C75.jpeg
    -Sandshrike. My first attempt at desert camo. Has a new head but still WIP in robot mode.

    C0CB5D40-A1E2-4402-98DD-471CA179D6E1.jpeg
    Ruin. Has a lot of kitbashing. Mad max style jet with a sadistic personality. Will be painted matte black with red and grey accents.

    785B895C-D355-45DA-BA59-F961C8B048F6.jpeg
    Slingshot with his newly built head and chest. It took… a lot of work to get it all to fit in robot mode. Months of work… Artic camo looks great tho.

    WWII Valiant! A new character of mine I’m quite proud of.

    Cosmic Drift Optimus, an old custom but still one of my favorites.

    One of my current WIP projects… A project I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Firefly

    These are awesome!

    Speaking of customs I had a custom idea but need to know the safest way to remove AoE Hound’s head from this little disk here

    Wow man that's great! Mine should arrive in about 7 - 8 days (hopefully no damage...)! Think that this is the Megatron design movie that I liked the least... add the fact of the ridiculous "transformation with dematerialization"! But the brilliant Unique Toys designers, with this masterpiece, made me change my mind about him!;)

    Great custom works and paint jobs; WW2 Megatron and sandshriek look particularly sharp!

    I have the KO Scrapper and it's the same quality wise. Feels really good, and they improved the mold by making his mace hand detachable.

    I'm sorry Bee fans, but it appears that 77 Camaro Bee was false, as was Barricade reissue. It is just the reissue of MPM7, and MPM12 this year. Hasbro is making up for it soon.

    That's quite alright. We'll just take Commander Class Que with functional but to-scale power tools in exchange!

    *sigh* Guess I’ll take MPM-03 out of my ROTF display and put him back in my 07 display for now.

    Wow! Do you happen to have the dpci so i can at least ask them for a delivery date? My local Target has been trying to stick with "street dates" and asking for figures has been futile as workers in toys have been actively hiding them so no one can ever find them in the back.

    Mpm7? The dude the went on clearance on his first run and went on clearance again on its 2nd at target? How about a reissue of the Camaro Bee?
