    I bought my first Flame Toys kit today, the IDW Prime from Barnes and Noble. I'm about half way done. I think I like it enough to buy more. I've got my eye on the Bumblebee kit next I think.

    Thundercracker is tempting. Maybe a birthday gift for my parents to get me.

    I hate model kits!


    But I'm a sucker for SG so I'll get the optimus.

    Quick question, do you need to glue these?

    No. There may be places where they will suggest gluing a particular part, but for most stuff it isnt necessary

    I Don't like building them, they are very frustrating with all the pieces for me to build but I love how they look, also all my money is getting saved up for Omega.

    I'm slightly nervous about stickers cause I'm shit putting them on but that IDW megs is to Sexy to pass on for only $50.

    It kicks the shit out of the MMC Version.
    I also love SG and i almost bought the MP but I saw this guy and fell in love

    Hopefully SG prime will be here by my B-day!

    Get some tweezers man. #1 rule of model kit building, you can’t survive on hands alone. It doesn’t even have to be tweezers. Getting a toothpick will work just as fine if you bend the sheet and grab it off the end. While you’re at it get a stand to prop your pieces on and then just gently move the sticker onto it.

    Thank you very much! I'll apply that to the prime.

    I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and say the Emblem and a few red spots on Megs

    I got my feet wet with the Super Mini Pla Voltron, so this IDW Prime is technically my second model kit I've built. All in all, once completed, the action figure element on this guy is awesome.....

    My only complaint is more of a personal nature, the older I get the less dexterity I have in my hands. Some of the pieces are pretty small and can be frustrating at times. They should have a senior grade model kit with bigger pieces, kind of like a large print Bible for older folks......
