    Oh yeah I totally agree. Didn’t know Nonnef made a kit for it. I’ll have to watch that video. Thanks for sharing.

    And that’s also another reason why I don’t care for a + version. Cause the originals are pretty good. Heck I bought a Ratchet this year and he’s still a great toy.
    Actually just throwing out another idea. You think you could do some group shots with the Prime decos like with the +, Diaclone and G2 @chchchch?

    Ironically it’s another case where the KO is better than the official. My official Ironhide was losing chrome on the bumper till I stripped it off and repainted for toon, and my official Ratchet is losing white paint on the shoulders. The KO’s I have of both (for Alt mode) have had zero issues with chrome or paint. And the KO Ironhides face seems to stay more firmly attached while the officials falls off it i so much as touch his Mohawk.

    Oh cool! I've actually thought about that, the only difficulty I've had is that some of the ones I've done are from drastically different camera angles, so they might look kind of weird together. I'll find a way to make it work though, great idea.

    I'm starting to think there's a REALLY good chance of it, assuming they haven't quit doing these kinds of repaints altogether...it's a color scheme they haven't done before for Bumblebee, she's a well-loved character, and they could claim it doubles as a blue Microchange homage!

    But to be fair, I never knew that blue looked so good.

    Which is ridiculous given that every other figure in the past couple of years has the blue windows. Hell, MP-21 has blue windows. It makes no sense.

    Unless those are all pre-production samples before they switched to blue windows. Using samples in a display like that would make sense.

    Yeah that's what I am hoping. As you said, it makes sense. To do otherwise would be totally illogical (so they'll probably do it).

    G2 v2!

    I think this is the first Transformer that I remember being old enough to decide to buy with my own money, so it's a little bit special to me :D

    I like the choice of blue for the blast. Any reason?
