    It's the bottom shelf of the cupcake stand from my wedding suspended using two jewellery risers I wasn't using anymore from my model car collection.

    I just got my copy of Astaroth in the mail today, and it comes with two screw covers. Rather than searching back through the thread, where do they go?

    I can see some thinking it dull or lazy, but I think the Trailbreaker/Sixshot-like coloration for 3/4ths of these guys works for these guys.

    That's referring to their face being the same color as the rest of their head. Can really make the eyes stand out.

    But this does make this set's Sinnertwin the odd man out. And who knows what they'll do with Hun-Gurrr and Abominus.

    Agreed on that last part. To wit, I silver-ed the faces on my Levi and Mammy, gonna do the same for Lucy whenever it gets here.

    Hmm, actually it's toon accurate for Cutthroat, but this set isn't, so do what you thinks looks best.

    And Rippersnapper is yellow

    But the toy has same face (as does Blot)

    Guess, TFC is going for with a more toy inspired direction. Probably means Abominus will have fuchsia face (not my preference).

    I knew this, but having the visuals here together, SO SO glad to be getting away from both.

    Just never really noticed the differences myself, but they're not as drastic as some toy to toon changes.

    I still wonder why bots with more beastial alt modes had such regular faces. Always thought they should have more animalistic/monstrous features and faces in bot mode. Makes more sense to me, anyway.

    Well they are Transformers no. They need to be able to pass as Joe the Plumber while still retaining the ability to transform ;)

    "They call me Hun-Gurr. By night, I'm just your average two headed wolf/dragon monstosity. But by day, I am that most terrifying of creatures: A chartered accountant!"

    When they combine, they become an Accounting Firm with a battle cry of "Taxable STONKS!!!!"

    Thanks! they're installed.

    I just put in a preorder for Lucifer through TFSource since that's where I've got Leviathan stashed, and I'll ship them both out once it comes in.

    Maybe because the bot modes are their true disguise, while the bestial modes are their true form. They're like robot serial killers.

    I think rabid (almost mindless) beasts would be a more apt description.

    At least most versions, I think of this particular version as cosmic horrors stuck in Cybertronian bodies and serve the Fallen.
