    The cigarette is FT Kup's Cy-gar.
    The squat, for pretty obvious reasons, is Slavic ;)

    Been a while since I posted pics here, so please forgive the dust.

    I always think taking pics of Megatron in a relaxed stance should be in a more upwards angle to convey his sheer presence.

    And now the counterpart to my previous Megatron and Soundwave photo…

    Excellent!
    Who says he don’t look good from behind!
    A great “over-the-shoulder” view would also look awesome.
    say, this kinda reminds me of the S1 *edit I mean S2 intro at the end when they all get sucked into the purple lined vortex. Have you recreated that scene before?

    @Xaxis , stargazing, something only Autobots would do.

    Ah thanks so much bro! It's actually my silly rushed attempt to evoke the UK 1986 Movie poster on a flat surface:

    Transformers-the-Movie-UK-Poster (1).jpg

    But in fact I did do the season 2 intro fight scene! I'm not claiming to have done a good job, and I didn't do anything to recreate the collapsing vortex effect, but here's a shameless repost! :D 

    IMG_20191112_112419.jpg IMG_20190929_141608513.jpg IMG_20190929_143448243.jpg IMG_20190929_144047791.jpg IMG_20190929_144734298.jpg IMG_20190929_145141325.jpg IMG_20190929_145910089.jpg IMG_20190929_150351196.jpg

    I also gotta say, now that I'm starting to watch some G1 episodes with my kids and re-experiencing it through their eyes, it's really amazing to come in here and see your photos along with @Dean ML's, @Xaxis's, and everyone else's, making these things look like the screen images sprung to life. Not only that, but reminding me that the action figure representations of these characters that I thought would only ever be a dream are now reality!!! Keep it up everyone! :thumb

    Aahhh yes! Please, by all means, shamelessly repost. As DeanML said up post, and I’m summing up: hats off to you good sir. You make the fandom and this site better with each picture you share and re-share.
    That recreation is in on point. You are being modest as @MSWF377 stated above. You evoked the Theme song as I scrolled to each pic.
    Thank you for that!

    I really am. Unfortunately my house is in a state of disarray right now. I have no place to display my collection, so I keep him in the box and have to take him out, transform him, play with him, transform him back and repeat whenever I have time (which isn't often). But he really is a dream come true for any fan of the show. So much life in a plastic toy. I own him and am still in awe by peoples pics here. I'm now very impatiently waiting for Bumblebee and Hound

    You guys are so kind, thanks again!! I'm sure I was humming the theme song while I took the photos, so it probably stored itself within the images somehow. :lol  I'm just thrilled to feel like I contributed anything to these boards where I see people post unbelievable work everyday!

    I hope your display situation gets easier at some point @MSWF377, for a long time until I got this shelf set up my collection was also relegated to the boxes and it really cuts into the enjoyment to have to pull it all out and put it all back every time you want to mess with a figure, at least for me. But that's awesome you're able to get so much out of it anyway!

    I have been appreciating the heck out of this little guy (since snagging an early copy/factory reject for sale) - I absolutely love him:

    F5438BFF-D8BD-46B3-ACA1-DF5D376CFA82.jpeg

    I can’t wait to see everyone’s pictures of him when he lands in a couple of weeks, or for my (hopefully) pristine final production copies to arrive from Kapow and Amazon (although they’ll be put aside for under the Christmas tree).

    More Minibots, please, Takara!

    Wow. That is just awesome!

    I was never a huge fan of MP-10. While it looked good,the limited articulation in comparison to MP-01 really didn't do it any favors and kept it off my favorites list.
    The only version I own is the YotH one, which my daughter talked me in to, because she was born in a year of the horse.
    I ended up removing the gold and repainting it in silver and added new smokestacks, but left the year logo for her.
    After seeing MP-44 and it's amazing articulation, I started feeling a bit more enthused about MP-10. Don't get me wrong, I see 44 as THE Optimus. He looks amazing.
    Still, something about 10's re-imagined design and modern take started speaking to me, and now I really do like the mold, flaws and all.
    I still need to find a Takara version for a decent price so I can give this custom to my daughter to take to college next year, but until.then, I will appreciate the absolute heck out if this one.
