    Got my Noneff upgrade pieces for the Cone heads and Sideswipe and Red Alert. Added a little paint and my coneheads are just waiting for Toyhax deception labels to go right in front of the cockpits.

    These Lambo pieces are great. Only issue is I did not realize the grey one I ordered was not specifically designed for Sunstreaker. Now I have to decide if I want to try to mod it or just go another route for him. Highly recommend their products overall though.

    Amazon very BRIEFLY had Quintessons for $17 2 weeks ago. They finally came in!

    Is that a Generations Brainstorm? I'm not a fan of the Headmasters concept (at all), but damn, that is a fine looking Transformer. The proportions are fantastic. What a great sculpt!

    Yes, it is. An absolutely fantastic figure based on Alex Milne's Design of Brainstorm. Highly recommended even if you don't like headmasters. Crushes the TR figure.

    Yeah, HMs typically have oversized heads, which ruins it for me, but this figure looks great. It's slightly stylized without going overboard. Really nice design.

    It's ironic, because I:

    1) have never liked Headmasters in concept nor execution,
    2) rarely if ever like anything painted light blue,
    3) almost exclusively limit my collection to TFs with Earth alt modes.

    Yet, I find myself wanting one of these.

    And I implore you to find one! His plastic is a nice teal, it is based on a great design which it is faithful to.

    Good luck on your hunt!

    sorry youre having to deal with such an inconvenience. ive never had a piece and/or accessories missing (knock on wood). its bad enough nowadays with the cheaper plastic and poor paint jobs. now you gotta go through the hassle of getting a replacement. over the years ive never had any problem returning defective product.. hope you can get a replacement soon. best of luck on that.

    Finally some luck with exclusives! And Bee was only $17.88!
    Now I just need to worry about Ironhide, Prowl, Ratchet, Centurion weapons set, Quint Pit...maybe Barricade, Netflix Prime and I really want a few of those Botropolis Ironworks(probably not going to happen because I can't spend that much on Deluxes and doubt anyone would want to split that set...)
    So if anyone has a Ratchet or Centurion Drone/weapons they want to let go for non-scalper prices, hit me up please! :)

    Looking for Optimus Primal and instead I found Hot Rod. Neato.

    The evolution has reached its final stage.

    C’mere little guy.

    Reunited and it feels so good.

    I used to think the Classics version was the best Hot Rod out there. Thanks for finally retiring him, HasTak.

    One last comparison to the latest Hot Rod deluxe and their flaming exhaust effects. Sadly, Cyberverse Hot Rod’s flame effects don’t peg on that well to SS86. You can sort of get them on in vehicle mode but they don’t really stay and they look awkward.

    All in all, a pretty cool figure. Sadly, I kinda snapped part of the arm pipe when I was transforming him from vehicle to robot mode because I didn’t realize the connection was two pegs and a hook in the middle (kind of a stupid design if you ask me, especially since the hook is totally unnecessary) and I can’t seem to get his calves tabbed into the slots (which I saw was a problem in some reviews), but he still looks very cool and is a commendable job.
