    Definite scammer. Follows the pattern of selling cheap stuff first to boost reputation, then switches to TFs with prices too good to be true.

    Just saw a Wheeljack KO on eBay. Depending on which side of the fence you're on with KOs it's either happy days or gloom.

    (EDIT: just found the KO Wheeljack thread. Dunno why it didn't appear in search!)

    Well, looks like at least one person's fallen for it...

    Congrats! Careful transforming the panels on the outside of his lower legs. The pin joints can become stressed and I've seen reports of breakages. If you pose Soundwave a lot like I do the bottom of his feet might become scuffed over time. His pointer finger pops off easily, so be careful not to lose that. Also as mentioned, Laserbeak/Buzzsaw's tailfins have been known to snap off. Might have to carefully massage them into place and be patient.

    Awesome shots all around, gentlemen! Really behind here. Work, family, health stuff... hope to post more soon!

    if that leader prime just had a waist swivel i'd get it all over again. i have since distanced my collection from movie stuff though ( i only had a handful because i appreciated the engineering ...aestheticlaly i think they are kinda..well you know...) but i'd get it if they could somehow work a waist swivel in there. ROTF leader prime is perhaps the single best mainline toy ever released ....definitely was for movie verse.

    To me the missing piece would be a fold out mouth plate similar to the revamped AoE Optimus Takara put out though I can think of a similar addition for most MPs...

    As much as I love MP-10 and the RotF Prime mold, I think the Hasbro TRU release of MP Soundwave is the single best release from either company. An MP release with all cassette minions for the same price as the standalone MP overseas? Must've felt really good to be the Soundwave fans who score one of those.

    those look pretty good! are they bigger than his factory hands?

    d'awwwwww...

    probably from his grimlock mommy... :D 
    that's a nice looking display! I like the tmnts on top too!

    yes. yes he is. I got the takara one when they were first released and I was stoked. but when tru announced that they were gonna do that? I did a happy dance in my living room because I really didn't feel like paying 120+ bucks on just the tapes.

    Okay...this is paint and Ocean Decals (several sets). There aren't ANY stickers here...

    Exhaust will be getting a new Decepticon symbol soon. It didn't survive the repaint.
