    Well, today turned out kinda horrible because I was in a car accident. I've got a cervical sprain on my neck and a splitting headache, but otherwise I'm physically more or less okay. My head's a mess, though. :( 

    I've got Punch here to keep me company while I file the insurance claim. Haven't gotten a chance to transform him yet, but I'm glad that I have him. I don't know if I have his shoulder kibble positioned correctly, or if mine has the fixed shoulders.

    I'll go watch some YouTube video reviews of him after I take a shower.

    Man...seriously sorry for your bad day. I’ve been there before, when your car gets wrecked...there are few things that can pull you outta that funk to make that specific day better. But here’s some good news... 1) your still breathing and 2) tomorrow is a new day.

    Get some rest, take some Advil, have fun transforming P/CP back and forth, and start tomorrow off fresh. I know today was not fun, but it could have been much worse.

    Thanks, guys. Much appreciated. I take an 800 mg ibuprofen to help with the aches, and it seems to be working.

    Any, I'm pleased as punch with Punch-Counterpunch after fixing his shoulders. To give Counterpunch a different weapon, I switched out his Prime Armor for a Combiner Wars hand-foot gun. I think it works better and can even store on his back.

    I love his car mode. It looks sleek and fast, for the getaway if his cover is blown!

    Glad that I finally got this guy. Just wish wish that the rest of the day hadn't been so sh!ty. :(

    Novastar energon run. Can't believe that energon cube actually fits under her arm.

    The Toyhax set sure gives Snarl a nudge in the right direction.

    And the Nonnef weapons gives them a kick! Especially Swoop.

    I would still like to get a second set of these to decorate like the G1 toys. The Reprolables do an admirable job of this. Normally I would get Reprolables for figures I really like, but I wanted my Dinobots to have a more Sunbow appearance, and just feel that some paint touch-ups instead of stickers would do the job better.

    Nonnef's weapon set is pretty much a must buy for them though, just saying.

    This might be old for some here, but I just came across this neat little addition for Volcanicus that combines Slash. It makes Volcanicus' proportions look waaaaaay better!

    How well do the Beast Gorira Jr. weapon modes fit PotP Primal's hands? I'm considering picking up the Gorira Jr. set for him.

    (apologies for delving up a post from over a month ago).

    not very stably at all really, they have to be propped against the ground. his fist doesnt close entirely around them in axe mode, though it may work better being held two handed.
