    Total guess but i'm pretty sure that's from "Atlantis Arise!". Take note of what I believe are Nergill's soldiers behind the Decepticons.

    Hope Skywarp will be able to hold Megatron better than Starscream can, for certain recreations...

    Finally, a reason for me to use the MP minifigures...

    After Starscream, I’m looking forward to all the seekers. My Starscream still stands and no cracks. Pretty sure the next seekers will be built even better. I have to say, I’m pretty stunned with how good Starscream looks. Having all 3 seekers will only sweeten the deal and Skids, loving how he looks. For now, my figures of the year are MP-52 and Kingdom Rodimus Prime. This year has been one of the best for MPs in a long time.

    Nice! I was thinking Constructicons at first, but they weren't shaped quite right and there were too many of them.

    100% agree with you, my guy. My Starscream after a couple really quick fixes is as solid as ever, and he's got me more and more excited for the others to come.And after that, man is he a solid looker.

    As for my FOTY so far, easily Starscream, with an honorable mention to MP-44 (since he came out in 2019), and I think he's solidly got that title among the rest of this year's releases.

    Yeah, finally was able to nab him thanks to GCreation putting up a metallic repaint of their Sixshot just in time for me to cancel the regular version I still had in my POL. Used the funds from that to nab MP-44 for about $240 and man was he worth every damn penny, $240 or otherwise. Legit as for my favorite MP period, it's either him or Starscream, both have been on my desk since each of their arrivals.

    I’ve got Kingdom Cyclonus, Roddy and Screamer on my desk. Skywarp will probably become the normal seeker deskbot as I like his color combo the best

    Yeah, all 3 of them look so good that I can't really put any of their color schemes on top, so I guess Starscream wins by default?

    And ironically enough, I actually have FT Hoodlum and Quietus opposite Prime and Screamer, so it seems we great minds think alike in a way, haha. Hopefully I have space for deskbots even after I get all this audio equipment in, it'd just be so satisfying to have everything all together in such a space.

    The FT-29T Quietus. So good! I’m glad I got that to go along with their version of FT-16M Galvatron. I would love to recreate the movie scene of Skywarp becoming Cyclonus and already having MP-36 in my shelf become Galvatron. I just need to find a good background for my pictures to recreate those scenes.

    While the pinkish tint on Quietus T threw me off a bit at first, once he went up for reissue, I knew that was my only chance to nab him. And i'm glad I did over the original. Picturesque in comparison to his 2D counterpart. Would love to get my hands on Sovereign M as well, though I also currently am gunning for Abaddon, now that he's finally gearing up for release next year. Just hoping they give him a slightly darker deco in-line with FT-16M. That in-between bluish-purple really catches my eye.

    Watch Takara just randomly show off their Galvatron and immediately get me to go with their's over these LMAO

    That'd be one hell of a scene to see recreated, can't wait! Meanwhile I gotta get photo stuff together to begin with. Getting real tired of using my phone for photos so getting a proper camera (specifically a Fujifilm X-T3, given that we don't see the next in their X-T line soon, which would be the X-T5; Before you ask, the X-T4 had horrible overheating issues so I decided to just go with it's predecessor since it ALSO can shoot 4K video, but in a more stable manner) is of a high priority as of late. Hopefully I should nab it pretty soon.

    With Skywarp, that’s a lot of purple. Still wondering how the final colors on him and TC will be since I noticed MP-52 had more gray matching his face vs the white body Starscream had. I find it strange that Thundercracker won’t come with a stand. But whatever works. I’ll be patiently waiting til December. There’s plenty of other goodness from here until then.

    But as far as color goes, I think Skywarp probably has the best look of the 3 seekers

    Yup, it is. I was just watching it the other day on Hasbro Pulse’s YouTube channel.

    All three Seekers come with a stand! There wasn't a stand shown for Thundercracker, which led to people believing that he wouldn't come with one, but he does. They all three do.

    At this point I simply can’t be bothered with ANY 3P iteration of Galvatron.


    TT is sure to be my choice and after Skyfire, I’m certain I’m done replacing (selling) shit and I’m not about to have my collection looking like a damn swap meet.

    TT will do a Galvatron.



    Can’t wait for Skywarp!

    Looks like the camera operator misplaced him. That cell should be in the back.
    Not every error is an animator error. You have camera operators, painters, and layout artists that make mistakes as well.
