    I agree with everyone else, what a great and cool work!!! Well done, man! What an undertaking!!!

    I finally transformed this guy. I thought that was a lot of work, but compared to Tukai it was nothin’!

    I didn't want to collect SS Seekers... But I guess it was destiny since they went on clearance. Now Blitzwing is in my pile of loot at BBTS... also discounted (substandard grade). I hope the diorama is intact!

    Like many other figures, they look and feel a lot better in hand than they did in pictures. I do wish those wing guns weren't so loose, but these are two nice looking bots!

    I got SS but didn't bother with Thrust. SS just looks so terrible in comparison to Blitzwing.

    YouTube (Old):
    The stripes on the back fins are gone, and two gray squares are added in the middle for toon accuracy. I think that's it for the changes, but the gray might be different or something, I'm not sure.

    got a couple gnaws in the other day...

    guess I'm still not feeling this is the best possible version...maybe they'll have to do a masterpiece to accomplish that...

    one of the things that has bothered me is the placement of the sharkticon arms and legs...either too far forward in the case of the arms, or too far back in the case of the legs...plus I realized none of the toys of gnaw has featured the antenna either...

    I mean he's close but there is a bit of room for improvement

    Kup arrived a couple of days ago and... goddamn, I think this is one of my faves.
    I keep pulling him off the shelf and fiddling around with him, he's damn fun and the vehicle mode is an absolutely ace Future-Ute.

    Now I just need Arcee.
    I've said it before and I'll say it again... PLEASE don't let SS86 Arcee be the Earthrise one with a pink face. ;~;
