    With the Thrilling 30 Springer out of the box, I thought I'd pose him with some of my other collection, showing the size difference between the lines. Springer usually isn't this much of a brute, canonically, compared to, say, Prime. But it works. As I say, it's a curated collection deliberately supposed to be a mash-up of styles, giving something kind of different. I don't collect Masterpiece because, well, I am just not going to spend that much money on one thing. And, frankly, I don't prefer collecting things that large. And I remember the cartoon, but it's not at all my favorite aesthetic.

    First you can see the Studio Series, RED Arcee (who is actually Blue, of course), and Generations Springer. Then I added Siege, a third-party figure in Core(?) Roadbuster. Then I also switched the Prime for the Striker Manus knockoff version. Which is too bad, because I happen to think the texture and outline of the SS-38 Prime is actually really good. Especially in person.

    Because I like to make it difficult, I also am collecting TVC StarWars, while everyone else is moving to the doll-size ones. And Domo is there. Because it's Domo!

    I'm also testing out my camera, my exposure skills. My ability to mess with Pixemator and GIMP as well. Post01_02.jpg Post02_01.jpg Post02_03.jpg Post04_01.jpg

    For a few seconds, I thought that Perceptor had a giant wheel sticking out of his back and thought that some third party company had made a Perceptor that turned into a bike. Now I’m a bit disappointed.
    The same could be said for Beast Machines Obsidian, who’s a bright shade of green.

    After months of fighting it I finally broke and bought ER Screamer. MP-52 envy got the best of me and he's the next best thing at a reasonable price. That toon look and shiny red paint is pretty damn fantastic. I think Siege Screamer still has more character tho. If ER just had wrist rotation he'd have Siege beat.

    I'm not a Starscream fan but think the ER version is really nice. The transformation is clever enough, the proportions are good, and the detailing is nice without being as greeble-ridden as Siege. I needed the head for a custom so I bought one used, but I might return it to the figure. I'm tempted to buy the TC/SW combo, as Thundercracker is my favorite Seeker. I've only picked up a few select TWC bots because the characters mean something to me, and I don't really collect CHUG, but I think this is a good Seeker mold.

    LoL no. That's just the custom shield I made for my Power of the Primes Wreck-Gar. He looked so incomplete without his shield!

    2 outta 6. These little guys are hard to find on the secondary market.
    I wonder if it’s because they’re so small.

    Sigh. I know the ER Mirage seems to split people. But I do like the Earthened up version better. But I guess you need to get the bird guy with him. I think my Siege looks well enough for something displayed in robot mode.

    I'm not really familiar with Beast Wars. So every time I see that bird guy, I hear this voice.

    I picked up Kingdom Red Alert this weekend, and the other two boxes came in the mail today. The closed shipper box is the WFC Grimlock / Mirage 2-pack.
