    I generally displayed them in car mode myself due to the issues with the heads and stuff. As soon as BBTS got 2nd runs of these guys I bought those to replace the KOs.

    It took Masterpiece Soundwave with all his cassettes to get me to jump fully into the MP bandwagon. Now if we get an MP Sunstreaker, I would be overjoyed.

    Edit to my previous statement: That moment when your package hasn't come yet on the "Latest Possible Date" day.

    Masterpiece Red Alert arrived just now. I just love the Japanese Masterpiece boxes so much more than the U.S. versions.

    So, can we get a "final" tally on who's going to Iowa on what dates? I think only a couple of us were saying the 8th was good, so maybe if more were going on the 22nd it would make for a better time for all involved.

    22nd would work for me. On the Iowa meet-up thread, Marto6 was also looking at going that day.

    Just had a chance to pop open Snarl. His robot hands are just, forgive the French, a fucking embarrassment. I mean they take the time and extra plastic to include a dummy dino head on the right leg for summitry but they can engineer a hand that doesn't stow? Or at least look like it functions in a useful hand capacity. Ugh, last figure I need from AOE so... grrr. Out side of that I'm impressed with the figure overall. Weapon storage is half good (you'll see when you play with him, hold on to the rubber band that comes with him) and the color is actually growing on me but, jeez those hands :mad: 


    EDIT: ok, not so bad if you rotate them, but it looks like you may want to consider them "fixed". The official transform has them just stupid looking.

    EDIT: Hmm looks like a couple little tabs of plastic shaved off on the back of each elbow allow for better straightening of the arms.

    Scorn - Red
    Slug - Purple
    Strafe - Blue
    Snarl - Green
    Slash - Teal
    Slog - Gray
