    It does make me a little nervous. At first the only reason I was buying Legends was because they were so cheap that, if anybody walked away with them, it wouldn't break my heart. That kind of went out the window as the collection expanded. But I looked around and people who had been here years longer than me had things way more expensive than my bots at their desks and never had a problem with them walking off, so I've relaxed about it a bit. It does help, though, that I'm right next to the IT department which has cameras all over it to make sure nobody walks away with their equipment.

    A clean desk policy and/or multi-user workstation would make me crazy. I need my work space to be my space. Keeps me feeling human rather than an office drone. I'm sure if it got too messy - covered in trash and stuff - somebody would say something, but nobody minds if we personalize our cube's. When I was in the support dept, they'd make me hide all my toys whenever a bigwig was scheduled to come through but now that I'm in development (I'm QA but it's part of the dev dept) nobody cares what I do with my desk. Turns out the bigwigs don't actually mind if we personalize our space. I'll admit I probably have the least professional looking cubicle on this floor but the only problem I have is keeping people from touching my toys :mad: 

    And yeah, I painted Beachcomber's hand. I was hesitant at first because I'm always reluctant to make permanent alterations like that, but I realized that the first thing I did with my XTB Arkose was to put the gold hand on and I've never taken it off so I decided I wouldn't mind him permanently having a gold hand. I've gotten a little more relaxed about it since then, hence Trailbreaker and Smokescreen having their accessories (and Smokescreen's thighs) silvered.

    [Edit] Oh yeah, you asked if I miss them during the weekend. Yeah, a little, but I have my MP collection at home so they keep me company :cool:

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of the more limited articulation on the shoulders, but at least Prowl and Bluestreak don't have that problem. And the rest of the mold is still great, so that helps too. :)

    I think the shoulder-wheels require careful positioning, and just about any pose is possible.

    I can't wait for Bluestreak and Barricade.

    Is Barricade a limited run? Have seen him at one or two stores only.

    Dunno if this has been covered, but I just realized where Maverick's name comes from: the James Garner tv show about a gambler. Smokescreen was introduced in the episode "The Gambler."

    -edit- which now makes me think Harry is a reference to movie-cop Dirty Harry.

    They almost all have some connection to entertainment or real life in some way. Maverick could be a Top Gun reference, but I like your idea more. Not sure what Alonzo references though. And Murphy (Bluestreak)? I dunno... Robocop maybe?

    I was thinking Top Gun too, but the James Garner Maverickshow makes more sense.

    I missed the Robocop reference. Alex Murphy starts the movie as a cop (Prowl) and is rebuilt into a black and silver cyborg it is a good fit.

    According to the Urban Dictionary, Alonzo means "tall dark and handsome" which seems like a perfect fit for Barricade to me.
