Loving this line just hard to come by
And just because, here’s Grimlock punching a gundam in the face:
Heh. I like the Popeye vibe of that other one. Wonder how much Energon he can get out of spinach.
He is one of those figures, like Siege Shockwave or TR Topspin, that just utterly nails it for me. I'm so impressed.
From TF:UK#133 'Kup's story'
Got another ET01 kit for Grimlock despite the issues I had with their hands / sword kit. This one is for the LED head. This group is repurposing MP accessories for leader class figures, some with new 3d printed adapters. The hands kit was fail IMHO (fingers kept exploding and coming apart, the wrist mushroom peg was wrong size). The swords need significant handle modding in order to work on normal hands.
The 2nd ET01 kit is the Model-003 kit with a new 3d printed head panel. It works great in bot mode. Unfortunately, no one bothered to test alt mode because the upper chest doors couldn't close. The horns on the new head are taller and prevented the tabs from coming together. Argh. Anyhow, figured out a mod on the head panel to let it swing past a bit further and finally allow the chest doors to close.
The 3d printed stuff they use is crazy. It's ridiculously tough and my metal precision files were barely making a dent. Had to use side cutters and a razor to shave off a lot of material off the head panel.
The end result is great, however. This is with the blue lens faceplate. Also comes with a red one. Still comes with the replacement shoulder piece for MP Grimlock that has voice clips and sound fx. Again, the sword here is significantly modded in order for regular hands to hold. The sword is not LED powered but the fluorescent red used in the KO MP sword works better than real MP LED sword setup. Clear chest window is my own custom mod (NFS).
I'll post more pics and how to do the corrective mod in the general upgrades thread later.
What is Evolution? Sorry, I don't keep up much with the leak threads anymore.
Next year's line supposedly.
Forget about Springer and Hot Rod, this is the real partnership!
Oh okay, thanks
Hey guys not sure if this is the right place so sorry if it isn't. I have SS86 Hot Rod and Siege Firedrive. Do you guys know any ways that I can combine hot rods two guns with firedrive? Or how to attach firedrive to car mode? And also any way to attach the regular guns to Hot Rod's car mode using the 5mm ports so I don't scratch the paint. Kinda worried about the paint scraping and I have had to redo the coat on those tabs a few times now (basically every time i put them in then pull them out.).
They were great together in Cyberverse,
Thanks. I tried that earlier but it didn't really sit in. Did you rotate the hands or anything or does it just sit there?
It may not be the trailer Hot Rod wanted, but it's the one he deserves.
I was gonna wait to do this with Galvatron, but Scourge works good for this too. Excuse the crappy editing, I was trying to get the lighting close to the actual scene.
"Is that you sugarbumps?"
"Who the hell are you?"
"It's me, sugarbumps."
"Oh, oh, Thundercracker! Thank Primus you're alive! I heard you'd been.....
"Fried? Is that what you heard?" You set me up over a woman. A WOMAN! You must be insane, heh heh."
"Ah, oh I-" (swigs energon)
"Your life won't be worth SPIT!"
"I've been dead once already, it's very liberating. Think of it as therapy....heh heh."
"Thundercracker, listen.....maybe we can cut a deal!"
"Thundercracker? Thundercracker is dead my friend. You can call me.....
"....Scourge. And as you can see, I'm a lot happier."
"Doesn't this remind you of anything, Kup?"
"No. Never seen anything like this before."
Heh. That dialogue rings a bell, but I can’t quite place where I heard it before, or if I’m imagining things.
It’ll put a smile on your face.
