    Scourge is pretty cool, I wish he wasn't so back-heavy so I could pose him better, but other than that, he looks really good and the transformation is pretty decent too.

    Morning all, happy thanksgiving. Wanted to share some minor adjustments I made to my Slag, just in case others wanted to do something similar.

    First off, I just had to paint his "cheeks". His face just looked so bland without paint.

    Also added a little styrene shelf for the head plate. Glued it to the backside of this chest, just below the "box" at the top. Gives just enough strength to keep his head from drooping.

    And it doesn't effect either mode

    Shockwave raises the bar for the core class because, that's a lot of detailing/paint for that size and I'm amazed it has that many solid connection points. I really wish that Cyberverse Shockwave had that alt mode as the upper torso and chest positioning in the alt mode has the same vibe. I wonder if the knees have enough range to crabwalk . . .

    In for two!

    I don't think BB Soundwave/Shockwave/Ravage posts are '86 posts.

    But anyways, add me to the club that has a broken SS86 Jazz. Picked him up earlier from my shelf, and noticed a small thin crack on the windshield. If you've seen this stock photo of Jazz, you basically get the idea.

    I'm just wondering why nobody's made a replacement roof that C-clips onto the pin, and has painted windows instead of clear. I know it seems daunting, but with just how many reports of the figure breaking we've had, it's weird nobody's done this yet.

    This was the Wave 11 (aka the initial) run of the figure by the way, not the Wave 13 repack.

    Not liking the cut corners in alt mode. I kinda regret selling my ER sceamer for this.

    :eek:  Holy Primus! I've heard of army-building, but did you really need that many Sharkticons? You must be made of money, sir.

    Seeing these pics just reaffirms my love for RTS Wreck-Gar. Not only is the transformation more ingenious, but the mold scales better with itself for Junkions to ride themselves. Those pics just makes it look like Wreck-Gar is on a minibike. Pass. :redface2:

    So, does Jackpot go in here, or Kingdom, or Legacy? Can't we just go back to Generations Appreciation thread?
