    Gonna keep it really short and not profanity filled, for the sake of this being a public forum and a swift return to on topic:

    They are terrible animals, like, the fact that they are alive is a direct affront to how evolution works. They evolved just enough so their sole food source does not kill them. Yep. Eucalyptus still absolutely poisons the hell out of them, and that is why they are lethargic and sleep most of the day. They also at one point got infected with Chlamydia, and this spread to pretty much the entire wild population. Why did it spread so far? Baby koalas cannot eat eucalyptus without it killing them, and they get the stomach bacteria from their mother...'s droppings. Which are riddled with Chlamydia. For an example of how absurd it is they are alive, last I checked, we had nothing to do with them being endangered. In fact, we have saved them from extinction twice already and they are en route to a third risk. There's a lot more about them that makes it confusing how they made it this far, so at what point do we just let it happen?

    Now, onto Double Clutch. Double Clutch, as of now, is still the single worst transformers toy I have ever handled, and I see zero redeeming qualities in him. He is flimsy, his joints do not hold well, he refuses to tab into any of his modes and stay there. His proportions are all wack, meaning that despite those massive stompers, he cannot stand up in robot mode. His torso mode looks like G1 Jazz, if he were subject to Extremely Cursed Deviantart Inflation Art. His drones are lackluster compared to the other packs, and his only...passable (?) mode is his car mode, because it at least sometimes looks okay, but he still actively fights you to get there and doesn't even roll that well. He was my first instance of getting a toy as a child and actually wanting my allowance money back.

    Power Core Combiners as a line was actually really cool, and a lot of the torso bots rocked. The problems it faced were poor distribution, bland repaints of already meh molds, (wave 3), and God Damn Double Clutch.

    It depends. There are two main scales used in SS. Bigger bots are in a smaller scale than smaller bots. Jetfire, Optimus, Megatron, Blackout, etc. all scale pretty well together. And most of the deluxes and a few of the voyagers scale pretty well together. Ironhide is made to scale with the carbots, while Optimus is made to scale with most of the Decepticons, probably to recreate all his fight scenes. But that unfortunately ends up with an Ironhide that scale nicely with deluxe autobots but is way too big next to Optimus. Only real solution would be to upscale Optimus to a leader class, but then nearly every figure voyager and up would also need to be moved up a class to keep things in line. That means Commander Blackout, Commander Dotm Megatron, Commander Dotm Shockwave, leader Rotf and 07 Megatron, etc. Now I would be all for that, but I can also completely understand why Hasbro went the route they did

    And I really like my big, beefy SS Ironhide, even if he doesn't scale with most of the larger bots and cons

    Someone get the copypasta out:rolleyes:

    Oh, I thought that one didn’t have any of the Chevy logos, or logos in general?

    My new guy is coming soon. The one Soundwave had nightmares about. Here’s a hint:
    42498608-5616-4DE7-878C-68DB5CE3E342.jpeg
    Evasion Mode Optimus Prime. The SS Prime that should’ve been. Alternatively, BB Prime is also in a great scale even though he’s kinda hard to play with.

    ROTF Megs in the paintjob of 07 Megs. Nice!

    Absolutely agreed. He looks lovely but also like a freaking wimp. Too small and scrawny for a guy who supposedly takes faces for a living.

    Awesome thanks! I get it now. I'm gonna wait to do this for when the DNA kit is released (which will hopefully renew my interest in the wreckers). I also like how you painted the guns.

    Newage Soundwave is marked down to $120 on ShowZ at the moment for anyone who might be thinking of getting him. Probably as cheap as he's ever gonna get at this rate

    I haven’t been taking many photos the last couple weeks, but I’m still proud of this Starscream set:

    BOO, FLESHLING!

    For that price if he comes with the minions then I’d say it’s worth it.

    Picked him up $10 off, tho having him in hand I'd have payed $10 extra tbh, Hasbro did a good job with him. 20210819_133534.jpg 20210819_133849.jpg 20210819_135622.jpg
    Love it, the alt mode is pretty ugly, but its not as bad as it looks in pics. Wonderful sculpting, especially on the hands, tho his head is a bit messy looking....

    Definitely prefer the Siege style rather than all the sharp angles on this one.

    Just got Grindor from Amazon. Super loose and floppy compared to Blackout, with one exception. The right leg joint was seized. I nudged it back and forth gently and it sheared right off. Will be returning to Amazon...

    This may be the first time in history a chug broke on me that wasn't due to clear plastic.
