    KO SS ROTB Mirage.

    From all the photos and videos I was expecting a mess of a kibble and parts that sticking out in all directions, but he looks really nice in hand, all joints are good.
    After getting him I even kinda like his design better in toy form than in the movie itself, with all that kibble he reminds me more of a transformer (and some kind of Bay aesthetics) than a man in an exosuit, and in silhouette he looks more like the rest of the autobot team, in the movie they looked like characters from different universes, IMO.

    Baybros, I have failed you.

    I was gifted Sunstreaker by my brother (who gifted him to me because he got it as a birthday gift and hated it and thought he could inflict pain on me), and now I unfortunately own him. I’ll say this - he’s truly a mid figure. For every positive, there’s a negative. His legs are really fun and posable - but his arms reek, as they’re hollow, have no wrist swivel and he’s got the fucked shoulders. His transformation is fluid - but it takes 30 seconds. His alt mode is swish - but he kinda stinks at rolling. One of the worst things about him is that he’s actually sculpted really well, with tons of small hidden details, but it’s all washed out in that yellow, with no paint to highlight it. Speaking of paint, he has like 14 paint apps - and half of them are only applied so that you see it from the front, no other angles.

    Suffice to say, if he wasn’t a gift, he’d either be burned or returned. Since I’m stuck with him, I decided to make him look at least tolerable to look at. My inspiration was the G1 toy, where I added black to his roof, wheels and some trim to his alt mode, red to his shoulders and any orange bits in bot mode, and silver to his shoulders (since they’re closest to where his spoiler would be) and his hands. It doesn’t fix him, but it takes him from a -3 out of 10 to a 2. Plus, it did get me back into customizing which may be foreshadowing for my next post…


    @blueman_photography on Instagram: "Custom Studio Series Concept Art Sunstreaker ------------------------------- I honestly never wanted this toy, but it was a gift so I'm going to make the most of what I've got. The mold itself is OK, the legs are very well articulated but the arms stink, with hollowness, no wrist swivel and those nasty shoulders that limit movement. As for the custom, I took heavy inspiration from the G1 Toy, adding black trim in alt mode, red and silver on the shoulders to emulate the shoulders and silver, darkening the wheels and making everything that was orange (which was only painted on from a front view - are we seriously cheaping out this much on a toy that doesn't have to pay alt mode licensing Hasbro?) with red. I still don't love the toy, but at least I can look at it now. ---------------------------- Likes, comments and shares appreciated! ---------------------- #transformers #transformersstudioseries #toyphotography #actionfigures #actionfigurephotography #transformersmovie #liveactionphotography #toypic_community #toys #toystagram #toypics #toyartistry #custom #customtoy #transformerscustom #transformers6 #bumblebeemovie #sunstreaker #conceptart"

    Got these two today. Galvatron looks a lot better in person than i gave him credit for from pictures, though his chest seems a bit flat. But he's really cool. 20240621_150408.jpg

    Working on my next shelf tier but my gosh, AoE Bumblebee is such trash I'm considering leaving him out altogether. Easily the most garbage figure hasbro ever slapped a studio series label on.

    Yeah, the original High Octane Bee wasn't very good when it released 10 years ago and definitely isn't up to Studio Series standards today. Sam Smith said that a new mold was still on their to-do list so hopefully we see the design get a proper figure someday!

    Takara Optimus Primal with DNA Design DK-48 Set (it's really an Apelinq conversion set rather than a Primal upgrade set). Do not use the optional accessory storage piece (stresses back port) or neck extension for stock ape head (breaks bot mode storage; new ape head works and looks better regardless).

    Haven't run the numbers yet, but these 2 are pretty close in scale. MPM Blackout and OSKO BBM Dropkick:

    Look who arrived back home today, just in time for ROTF’s 15th! Very excited to check them out when I get back later this week, some of them might get painted up!

    I plan on having another post later today for the ROTF anniversary, so stay tuned!
