I see, thanks for the insight.
Still shiny enough without the edit.
Great shots friends!
I’ve been lurking in the shadows these last 2 weeks, appreciating when and where I could. Heck, this post alone has taken me the better part of an hour to post. Been busy with our new member of our little family! Little Penny was born 10/1 and we’re all over the second moon of Cybertron in love with her.
Here’s a couple of pics:
I had prime in truck mode for like the last 3 weeks. Last night I transformed him in under 10 minutes (not counting the 10-15 minutes in between doing papa things).
His transform was burned in my mind and was easy enough.
Alright, back to lurking guys!
Finally caved and added this guy to my MP Collection!
I would be interested in hearing your opinion of him. I had him pre-ordered then cancelled and have been pondering picking him up now and again since...
I am totally appreciating my MP seekers today!
Starscream knows he looks good.
Without potentially derailing the thread with price point conversations, I will say that I didn’t purchase G1 MP Megs, Prime 3.0 or this BW Megatron due to my personal opinion that they were priced too high... I understand it’s a trend in the newer MP figures, and that other people are cool with the MSRP, but those 3 in particular are where I jumped off the boat.
Keep in mind that I have no set toy budget and I buy whatever I want... I just feel that anything over the $200 mark has really got to speak to me.
I ended up with a high end KO of G1 MP Megatron and never looked back... given the opportunity, I would have done the same here and secretly I’m waiting on that to happen with Prime 3.0 as well.
It’s been long enough for me to assume a KO of this isn’t coming any time soon, so when BBTS had their flash sale on him for $250 I went ahead and caved. I would have never paid over $300 for him originally and ideally I would have priced him at $180.
I like him well enough, and I was a huge fan of BW when it came out and ideally want the season 1 cast in MP form so you have to keep that in mind. My hope is that the other figures are more budget friendly, so I’m viewing this as a 1 time splurge for the line.
If you’re asking if the toy is fun... yes. He looks like he came right out of my TV and looks great on display. If you’re asking if he’s worth the current $350, for me... no, again keeping my threshold for what I’ll pay in mind. If he wasn’t on sale, I wouldn’t have bought him, and I’d probably have to recommend the same to you
Finally got MP BW Megatron, so the trio is done!
Also, I transformed him already 4 times back and forth, so far mine doesn't look to be one of the defective copies.
"Uh-oh! Sounds like my savage crossover broke dem ankles and now it's time for a maintenance check, Tracks."
"Don't worry, Spike. If I can fit in the driver's seat, Carly will have no trouble squeezing in here."
I knew that first pic looked familiar.
Guess I got to fix you bucket of bolts again, huh?
Shelf update! The ones that focus on 3p stuff are in the appropriate thread. All are collected under the link in my signature
In an ideal universe, my entire collection would be setup like this!!
While I’m a Thundercracker guy due to him being my first jet, I always thought that Skywarp was the best looking Transformer in the original line up. I was seriously jealous of my cousin who had him. I’m looking forward to getting him as a G1 reissue and finally completing the team.
"I'm sorry Streak. Guess we'll not see another sunrise from the horizon, or feel the road under our tires. Regrets, I've so many between us... "
Loving the little burst of appreciation in here!
Also, congrats @Robotmonkeys!
Heaven and Hell
