    I know this probably isn't the right place to ask, but, I only tend to post pics of MP's so here goes....

    Can anybody recommend a good iPAD/iPhone app for me to upload pics to, which will also allow you to copy the BB code from for easy posting here?

    I used to use imgupr which was excellent but it's stopped working, and the alternatives I've tried only let me post traditional links rather than [​IMG]

    I upload to flickr from iphone and then go to the site to get the url. An app isn't even necessary. Though I would also like to be able to copy direct from a app.

    Thanks, and had tried Flickr, but I don't want to be jumping between apps and website, too lazy! Plus I think it only gave me access to "camera roll" on the iPad but I need "photo stream".

    Imgupr was great, just upload picture, press share, press BB code and paste onto forum reply...simples!

    Awesome set-up, Rev! I'm so jealous of your four Detolfs. I'm officially out of space in my two with the onslaught of recent releases and had to assemble the Dinobots up on the roof above the cases because of the behemoth Stomp.

    One from me. Thundercracker is so cool. ;)

    Jealous? I'm jealous of your bad guys. Who knows how long before Takara makes official Insecticons and Reflector.

    Thanks! I like the way you have Reflector displayed. I may steal that. Looks good with TC.

    I don't have a lot of third party stuff, but I feel bad for the Takara purists who don't get to enjoy Reflector or Sludge right now. I'm not starting a flame war. This isn't pity. I respect you guys. So don't be mad at me. I just honestly don't envy the wait you have. But I suppose it will be all the more sweet.

    Rev, you get a hug.

    I am loving watching 3P releases. The Dinobots have been a painful temptation. But the mainline, and its pace, is all I can afford. Not to mention, the extra cost of potentially buying the same (premium) figure twice.

    That said, I love all the photos folks share of their integrated cross company collections. There are so many amazing representations of these characters! Pretty crazy!

    It's beautiful!

    Once I know what's going on in my life I need to pick up another couple of detolfs.

    Thanks! I could use a hug. ;) 

    Thanks! Although detolfs have their drawbacks, their price and availability are certainly attractive. Not dusting every week is nice too. ;)

    My Ratchet came in the other day. He feels weird. Solid but weird. The transformation feels very third party esque.

    I never once looked at my collection and thought I absolutely needed a certain character represented right now.
    I don't think my collection will explode or disintegrate if I don't have a stand-in Megatron or dinobots, and until the day Takara gets around to making these characters, I'll be happy with what I have.

    Yep, patience is the key. Patience netted me the Shockwave of my dreams, and a pretty freakin' awesome UW Devastator. I hope soon it'll bring a new Megatron and maybe Galvatron and Victory Leo one day.
    Until then, patience.

    Patience is a wonderful thing I teach my own kids about; especially critical in an age where everything is expected instantaneously. But when you can bet your left nut that the makers of official MPs wouldn't make a better representation of a particular character available from a 3P, for me it's a good time to pull that trigger.

    One particular example is the just released Stomp, a 3P take on MP Sludge. He has quickly become one of, if not my favorite MP-level figure of all time; definitely no mere stand-in. I honestly don't believe Takara could do him better; especially at their current output. So it's not always just a matter of having enough patience for Takara to get around to releasing the characters we want. Not for everyone, anyway.

    I don't think I ever suggested that mine or any other collection would experience a sudden violent catastrohy without third party offerings, but I am glad that you are finding satisfaction with your collection. That's why we do it after all.

    I wouldn't go down that road in this thread if I were you. Lol

    I love how neat and clean your Masterpiece display is. It's almost like a museum display and, IMO, the perfect way to display this type of figure.
