Added MFT Blitzwing to my season 2 'Con shelf. He's decent enough.
I would neeeeever steal your pop tarts.
Then why does your breath smell like blue raspberry?
pull my finger...
Anyone have MFT Sixshot and Magic Square Doomsday? I have the Iron Factory phase sixers but they are a little too small. I'm thinking of getting the MFT versions but I want to see how well they scale with MS Megatron. If anyone would oblige with a pic that would be great and ty in advance.
i think the MFT phase sixers are the perfect size and look great across the board. they work well with all the lines.
Thank you kindly, I want them on the large size and they seem to fit the bill.
Happy 500th Page, Legendary Heroes
Iron Factory's Hound came in, what a fun little dude. Quite amazed at the amount of engineering IF managed to pull off with a figure this size. I've been looking at their Cliffjumper as well.
Their cliffjumper is quite good, and packs in quite a bit of engineering into an even smaller size. Lots of accessories too! He doesnt suffer from the 'derp face' of the MS attempt, nor has the overly large feet and empty side profile of the NA attempt. You just have to be into the IDW look =]
I'm not a purist by any means, although I do lean more towards the G1 side of things. But I appreciate stylized takes if to my eyes the updated look is cohesive while still retaining at least some of the visual cues of the original design. I think both Hound and Cliffy from IF pass that totally subjective standard of mine, much like their updated Ultra Magnus/Maximus Ambus. I also adore that IDW/IF Cliffy is a Mini Cooper-esque vehicle. Now to see who still has him in stock...
Painted @NOCV 's custom MST Menasor face!
Had some fun with CP-01 and Siege UM.
Some of my legends TF
I was excited to receive my magic square Perceptor from Terry's toy club today upon opening the package I was greeted with purple strips and Spock, I was like er hi Shockwave, fancy seeing you here? I was kinda expecting Perceptor?
Shockwave as emotionless as ever gave me no answer to my predicament.
I've emailed Terry's but have heard there customer service isn't great so don't know what's gonna happen, I dont see why I should cover return shipping as it is entirely there fault, double checked my order definitely Ms Perceptor, plaudits the hassle of getting him sent bk so busy with work at the moment.
I even put my Shockwave t-shirt on to convince myself it is inevitable I'm probably stuck with him, which I was considering if he was a little bigger than my mft one (who happened to be my first ever legends figure so kinda special place in my display)
Would be chuffed if they let me keep him for the trouble plus return being too much hassle and cost for them and send me a free Perceptor for my troubles but I can't see that happening.
Thing is that will probably be my only chance to get Ms Perceptor as I struggled to find him out of stock everywhere lucky to of found him on that site just for this to happen. I also heard he has a limited run of like 1500 if that's true. What a bugger.
Any advice guys? Have messaged them about it.
That sucks, especially if they just don't have any more Perceptors. So long as you don't break the seal, maybe one of your compatriots would buy the one-eyed purple monster off you.
i'll take that shockwave off your hands...
I thot @Impactor666 was in the UK or summat.
Yeah I'm in the UK, suppose I could put him up for sale see what happens. I mean he nice and same size as mft one I have the mp version and he looks identical really maybe even nicer.
The only place I can find ms Perceptor for sale is AliExpress but there trying to charge double his original price so screw that.
I may give legends collecting a little rest for a bit. When I started collecting masterpiece there were a few characters I couldn't wait for so made customs to fill the gaps and now there some reasonably priced figures I plan to get to fill the gaps and finish up that set.
Theres still a lot of legends not yet released so I'm sure I'll get my chance over time.
TF Robots in the Netherlands has it in stock, just checked.
