    When I got Hot Rodimus a few weeks ago, I was really excited! It led me to getting my Black Rodimus Convoy out and shooting a few quick photos. I kinda turned it into a brief little "mini comic" of sorts:

    [​IMG]

    ""You are your own worst enemy. This is truly the burden hardest to bear'!"


    [​IMG]

    ONE SHALL STAND AND ONE SHALL FALL!"
    "Feh, bring it, you punk Autobrat."


    [​IMG]

    "EHHHHRRRGHHUUGH!"
    "Rrrrraagghhh...puny...Autobot...!"


    [​IMG]

    "This is the end of the road, Hot Rodimus!" "....uuuuuUUUAAaaarrrUUUUGGHHhhhh...!"


    [​IMG]

    *chtCHUK*
    "Succumb to your defeat, Hot Rodimus. Today is the destruction of the Autobots...the day of your demise!"


    [​IMG]

    "Not today! Not EVER!"
    *THUWTHUWTHUWTHUWTHUWTHUW*
    "AARRGGHH!"


    [​IMG]

    /END SIMULATION

    "You did well, Hot Rodimus."
    "Yeah, not bad!"
    "This sim helps, but I just keep envisioning this is how I end up."


    [​IMG]

    "We control our destiny."
    "You're too hard on yourself, Rodimus!"
    "Eh, I dunno...." "Listen to wisdom, my friend."


    [​IMG]

    "I'm packing it in, guys. Thanks for your help."
    "I wish we could help more."
    "Ultra Magnus, helping our friends with their innermost struggles CAN be the most we do."

    *END*


    Here's just a cool shot I took while I had Magnus out (still love 'im!):

    Took some photos of MP Hot Rod. I still haven't messed with the robot mode, but I'm enjoying him so far.

    Has anyone modded a Ratchet to look like the Marvel Comics version yet?

    Cool! I want to see some pictures of it if anyone does it. I passed on Ironhide and Ratchet so far, but don't think I could resist one with a Marvel Comics head. I'm probably too lazy to paint my own, though. Hopefully some 3rd Party just makes one.

    What do you guys use for display/flight stands? I have 3 FlightPose stands, but it doesn't look like they're making them anymore. I was thinking that these look like they may work for robot mode stands, but I still need something for my Seekers' jet modes.

    I have a question for anyone that displays their MPs in bot-mode; Do you consider all your TFs to be right handed? A lot of collections I see have figures mostly wielding weapons in their right hands. Does anyone out there go southpaw or mix it up? Or is it not something you even think about?

    That's so funny, I think about this all the time. All of mine are currently right handed but I feel like at least one should be left handed, I just can't decide who.

    yeah the pics are probably my favorite part of the whole site!

    my whole mp display is mix-matched with lefties!

    But the majority of them are right handed...

    Chances are, they could be considering a comic Ratchet. We already have G2 Bee and Sideswipe. Now we're getting Anime Red Alert. May be a good bet so far.

    Ratchet: Now remember Ironhide, you're getting older and you need to regularly get an electro-enema. Now open up and say Ahh!

    Ironhide: Ratchet I hate you!!!

    Mine are displayed right-handed except those that are naturally left-handed like Inferno of wielding dual weapons like Rumble/Frenzy.

    In my mind I consider guys that might be more abstract thinkers to be left handed. Wheeljack, Megatron, Bombshell, Smokescreen.
