    I think I'm going to sell my TLK Voyager Megatron. I've never been terribly fond of the design, and I feel like I honestly don't want to bother remembering anything from TLK.

    I hope they release a yellow Rampage. I love the red one but having yellow one for the combined mode would be great.

    Tough dilemma time. I finally found an ironhide online but he’s 45$. Should I wait for a better deal? (Price drop) or snag him as he is?

    Was surprised today yesterday by a FedEx package that contained my SS-16. Google said it would come on December 2nd so this was very very quick.

    First impressions were good. I'm glad I didn't pay full retail for him as he is very similar to the DOTM deluxe that I've handled before but he has some welcome changes. For example, he has tabs on his shoulders that I did not see until after I took all of these photos so they might look a little weird at times.

    And as promised, once I played with his as stock I followed Shmoptimus Prime's modification and could not be more pleased with the results. 20191125_000140.jpg 20191125_000425.jpg 20191125_000448.jpg 20191125_000635.jpg 20191125_001045.jpg
    Vehicle mode looks a little gappy but that's just because the plastic doesn't lay flat. A simple touch of the blow dryer to heat it up and bend it will work like a charm.

    Overall I'm really happy. I'm not blown away as I never had a huge attachment to the character and the figure isn't revolutionary but I'm really happy I can add another DOTM bot to my collection. If you prefer this paint deco I definitely recommend him for 17 bucks or less.

    Now all I need to do is grab Jazz from the post office tomorrow later this morning because the postman wouldn't drop him off without a signature on Friday. :( 

    So hopefully by tomorrow this evening I'll have a completed Studio Series collection of everything I want until the new waves come out.

    I can honestly say that this is the only mainline from Hasbro that I have ever actively collected and kept pace with. Itll be kind of weird waiting for the new stuff to come out. But, that just means more time to enjoy the figures I have now. :D

    I would say one to devastator permanently and the other to play around with.

    mint figure, mint box.
    You pay a little etra for a figure in a box that is completely scratchfree and they will wrap it up acordingly

    Hmm. Not feeling that robot mode at all. I think these guys have definitely prioritised the vehicle and combined modes for some of these figures

    Who is your favourite SS Leader class so far? All 5 of them are at retail for a good price and I'm still deciding on which one to pick up since they all look really good. I can only get one as I need save money for next year lineup.

    Blackout, being the only one I have. But I forsee Shockwave potentially taking over that spot someday, that paint and sculpt are out of this world!

    Thanks! Yeah with drawings this big I usually end up inking and coloring although not always. Inking is scary as hell. More scary than coloring! All those millions of details that movie transformers have can be fudged a little in pencil but not in ink!
    Thank you!
    You did a great job with the mod! Now break out the silver and black paint markers and make him look pretty. The feet need it the most.
    For sure Blackout. He's probably in my top 5 SS figures in general actually (I'll have to re-evaluate after the next couple waves since shockwave and scavenger look so good though).

    Thank you very much! It's such a simple mod that you came up with but it truly helps make the silhouette so much better. In looking through my pictures of the figure I definitely agree he needs more paint apps but I dont have any paint markers handy so that'll have to be a future project.

    In other news, I had a successful run to the post office this morning. 20191125_093238.jpg

    I didn't get to crack him open and mess with him yet since I have class all day but I can predict tonight will be a very fun night of posing this fella.

    I only have DOTM Megatron and DOTM Optimus Prime so I can't comment on Jetfire,Blackout, or Grimlock but in terms of the bang for buck I'd have to go with DOTM Prime. If you can get him for slightly under retail and can get past the lack of paint on the trailer components, he's a really fun figure with a bunch of play value.

    Studio series.
    best is easily jetfire or blackout. (Shockwave might change that thought).
