    I love these new explosion effect pieces I have! Plus the same day I got them my friend randomly gifted me a small flashlight. So now the booms look better.

    Tried to spruce up my Galvatron with my chrome pens. My hands are NOT steady.

    Nice picture.

    Crazy how there were only 4 iterations of Bee in 2007. 2 debuting in the same year. And one only introduced in a filler line a year prior. LOL

    Not bad at all. I like to steady my hand by putting my pinky out and using it to brace against the figure. Helps to keep my hand steady and prevents the figure from moving around.
    Looks good! Funny that we got the same effect pieces in the same week!

    Funny, I was looking for something in my basement and came across this very figure in a box of old stuff from my son's room, separate from my TF stuff. Agreed, it's a fantastic figure.

    I got it from AliExpress. But I'm sure you can get cheaper ones somewhere else.

    The expression of Cheetor and Wheeljack in a scene of the film is priceless, which I wanted to change into a Christmas variant! Merry Christmas to all forum members!

    I just got back from a trip to London, and while I was there I got to visit the HMS Alliance! I brought a few figures along as well to get pics.

    You can read about the full thing here!
