    Woo, just checking it all out at once online is a rush. I do hope the next podcast is just walking through all the things.

    Still excited to see TFC pull off perfect Seacons, and I was expecting more of Gorira would only make me smile. Robot, beast, and air modes all ride that line of nods to the source with clear upgrades. Ground mode's okay, just not getting points for looking less silly than air mode anymore. That diaclone robot came out of nowhere, and I think I'll keep an eye on Toyword's Cosmos, Arcee, and Mastermind's Apeface.

    Beezleboss (glad they're not dead) reminded me there was a third version of that joyous Chromia toy. That pic of all three at once (sisters or something) using a shared weapons rack just tickled me.

    So far what I want the most is that Nova upgrade kit. Now I just need to wait for a release date.

    Doesn't a simple second faceplate (like MakeToys did with Ironwill) cover both?

    Headsculpt on Hardhead was very different in Rebirth, smaller, rounder, with bigger visor eyes. Ironwill covers toy and Japanese Headmasters, so I would like to see FT try Hardhead for a Rebirth version (crazy as it sounds). The blockiness, and simpler detailing on Lupus made me think Sunbow. To do Headmasters they would have to have an angled wraparound visor, which should be feasible.

    Luckily, my S4 has been extremely reliable and it's just the mods that are killing me. Yeah, B5 S4 is one of my all time favorite cars. Just gotta get a p-car sometime and my car collection can be complete. Until then, I'll settle for some Jazz toys. None of the Jazz options have boon me away but I'll see once I see some product in hand.

    That Phoenix looks amazing. $210 is a bit steep, but I may have to bite the bullet to get the toon accurate Skyfire I've always wanted.
    Also excited for the Animated stuff. Gimme gimme gimme Mixmaster & Scrapper.

    I bought raffle tickets for the clear MMC Sphinx at the TFcon event this past weekend. Can anyone tell me the website that will post the raffle ticket numbers that were selected?

    You had to be present to win or they drew a new number every fifteen minutes .. The person that won the figure was at the table in seconds to claim his prize
