    Quite a haul today!! ML Nimrod 3 pack and Cyberverse Sharkticons from Amazon.com, the TDW Abominus and DNA SS Ironhide upgrade kits and a set of each colour of Dr Wu’s Scraplets from TF-NL - not the cheapest place around but they often have stuff that’s sold out in the US and Far East And they deliver quickly!

    [​IMG]

    First ever combiner upgrade set that I’ve bought and it’s....okay. I’m chuffed I was able to get the first run one with the extra yelling face and pokey bits for the chest but it all feels a bit fragile, what with it mostly just clipping on with friction. I feel like I may need to get better ratchets for the hips and to tighten a few pegs up so the hands and feet hold together better too. There’s no denying, though, that Abominus now looks a million times better.

    [​IMG]

    Even though I intend on using SS Ironhide as the base for a custom I thought it was worth adding the upgrade kit as it adds ankle tilts and slims the waist down, which will ultimately make for a better custom. Problem was the kit was sold out everywhere ages ago and the only other place I found it was some dubious overpriced new EU place called Iacon something or other. It was €66 from them!! Thankfully I found that TF-NL had it for about €30 so that’s why I ended up picking the other stuff up too.

    These wee buggers are awfully cute, I must say.

    Just as I was typing this there was a knock at the door and...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    ...the lads have arrived about a week early! I can’t make head or tail of what’s going on with Amazon tbh but, lack of outer packaging and battered box aside, I guess I can’t complain. Slightly bent instructions aside, thankfully there’s no damage to the lads!

    [​IMG]

    So, en route now I have the Quint Pit coming from Robotoybase and ER Yuckstreaker and Fasttrack coming from Comics And Cocktails.

    Just need to pick up a Runanmuck and a few more Allicons and then that’s Siege and ER mostly accounted for!! :D

    Got the last volume in the post today. You know what, I enjoyed these Manga's a lot more than I thought I would.

    Still no new signs of Wave 2 or 3 ER Deluxes, but here’s a blast from the past.

    FREAKIN’ WHAT?!? He’s not dead after all!! I don’t know if he’s being reissued or Hasbro is just sending back stock to stores, but I got freakin’ SS Jetfire at my local Meijer today. Never thought I would have this figure, huge find!

    Also found SS Topspin while out of town the past couple days. Wreckers are now complete.

    Oof. I like that Megatron, they did a great job with him, but the colors on that Prime... A bit too saturated and almost pinkish on the red and the blues are too dark. The color is what's keeping him from being perfect, but that Megatron tho... Dang.

    I'm not the biggest fan of yellow but I really like Tigertracks colors. Sunstreakers color variance isn't as bad to me as I've seen in other pictures. Definitely running out of room. Not pictured my cybertron mode duplicates. 20201106_125402.jpg 20201106_130255.jpg

    Yeah, I got some Jetfire reissues at a Walmart I went to a while ago. There were 2 Jetfires & DOTM Megatrons... Jetfires were gone the next visit (I took one though, so I partially contributed), DOTM Megs are still there. Still not as weird as me finding a singular Grimlock at a Walmart when the Overload wave had been out for a month.

    Dude, could you please you post some more pics of your Sunstreaker? I've been seeing a number of images surfacing online where the colour discrepancy is improved.

    To the eyes the difference isn't that noticeable but the camera definitely pics up the difference.
