    I never use this term, but I will right now; this figure is...beautiful. (lol) Every time I think I can do without it, I see a pic like this, and I want it all over again...

    I know how expensive she is now, but I'm surprised windblade isn't here.

    Arcee was her first figure, and that was well after release... maybe Christmas 2017. That’s part of it. The other is I’m not a current IDW fan, so I’m less motivated to track down characters without G1 roots. I suspect we’re going to get a new Arcee and Windblade in whatever line follows Siege though, so it may soon be moot.

    That's fair. I was also going along with the fact that she has a fairly prominent role in the current cartoon. I personally think TR arcee is really nice and probably doesn't need replacing but I'm biased towards the prime wars trilogy.

    Is it me or do all (or most) of the combiners from the Prime Wars Trilogy go from chest to waist, skipping an "abdomen" section?

    I finally got around to opening my POTP Inferno. On my shelf, he is replacing Scattershot as the center part of the fan club combiner "Modulus", consisting of: Shattered Glass Starscream, Rook, Ratchet, and Medix. Unfortunately, I still can't find Medix decals online, but I still think he looks great:

    They're charging that much for a reproduction of the BotCon stickers? Amazing. Since those are mostly fields of solid color, it can at least be recreated easily with paint. Even the EKG lines can be remade with the help of some painter's tape.

    Neither is a big lobster, but Godzilla still fought one.

    Thanks for responding and sharing the link.

    There are a couple of reasons why I didn't pick up that set, which I've seen on eBay for years. First, that ebay set is a copy of the orginal. It's colors are darker and the image is not as crisp. Second, it's uncut. Which means I also need to buy an X-acto knife and hope I cut it exactly right the first time. Last, it is missing the First Aid head. All of these detractors for a $40 sheet of lablels from someone with a copier.

    It's not just you. I have spent way too much money on third-party upgrade kits for the waist and feet mainly.

    How big are we talking here? Because according to the Maine Department of Marine Resources, the record for the largest documented lobster goes to one caught off the coast of Nova Scotia in 1977. It weighed 44 pounds, 6 ounces and was estimated to be 100 years old.
