BTW, I decided you were right about G-C Rebel!
I just updated my IDW shelf today. I need a bigger shelf
anyone that turn a truck into a robot that looks like this - I will be ready to break bread.
God I wish I had more money on hand to go after MMC’s Wreckers and Lost Lighters.
Still, I feel like I’ve at least done a decent job, for someone working mostly off sales and second-hand buys.
I'd have gone with GCreation Prowl instead of the MP, but good team indeed.
tbf, remember what I said about going for the cheaper options?
That MP Prowl’s a KO.
A secondhand KO.
A secondhand KO I stumbled on in a hobby shop.
It’s cheapskate cubed.
(What I’m saying is I wouldn’t lose much replacing him and I mostly just keep him around ‘cuz Earth mode to go with other Earth modes. Rebel’s on my watchlist alongside Spartan, Stray, and Decimus)
So, had a couple more MMC IDW figures confirmed today - Chromedome (possibly ready for preview at TFCon) and Getaway (apparently the deco has been confirmed for ages but there’s been no forward movement), and Ratchet was confirmed a while ago - most likely there’ll be an Ironhide repaint/remold too - so there’s still life in the designs yet!!
If only we could get X2 to just put their Rewind out already.
Where was that released? Be great to see more Lost Light crew.
The guy who designed Supermax confirmed Chromedome and mentioned the delay on Getaway in conversation on Twitter today and Ratchet was confirmed in the Supermax thread a while ago by, IIRC, Lazyaza.
Hopefully we will see Domey at TFCon. Apparently there’s an unnamed repaint that the designer is v. excited about too. I’m guessing Knockout.
So an IDW Bumblebee attempt I’ve seen made a few times is sticking WFC Bee’s head onto MPM 7. Apparently it doesn’t impede the transformation at all and proportionally it looks pretty alright.
Haven’t tried it myself, ‘cuz money, but I am curious how that same trick works with the KOs.
I would love a ratchet,chromedome but If there is a getaway really coming then my dreams are coming true.
Anyone got GT OPEX and its hybrid version? Is their red paint different?
I'm going to unlike this so I can relike it now that I noticed Meg's head.
Thanks I got this idea from this image. Perhaps I should have used Megatron head with black helmet for contrast
I knew it came from that pic, but I didn't realize his head was in the image either. Lol. Maybe I have cataracts or something.
Actually a few people had a similar comment when i posted the photo in other social media. So no your sight is fine
