    Yeah, the only reasons I was able to bring myself to sell off Soundwave and Starscream are that they looked the most out of place with all the newer molds and +s, resale value was good at the time, and I'm very sure some kind of update is coming for them sooner or later. If not I'll just buy 'em back :D

    Love that Sherman Dam shot, @Rogerimus !

    So brilliant and beautiful, @chchchch ! HR and UM look right at home on the neon green grid! I can hear the s3 intro - mmpop mmpop MMPOP MMPOP. Only thing wrong with it is it needs more Kup, Arcee, Springer, Perceptor, Blaster, Galvatron, Scourge, and Cyclonus! Hell, throw Wheelie in there, too!

    out of curiosity, since im relatively new to mp collecting, is there a reason there was never a ghost redeco of the mp-11 seeker mold? i want a ghost starscream, but literally the only option seems to be mp-3g, which ive heard is a pretty crap mold compared to mp-11. hell there doesnt even seem to be any 3p options in mp scale

    I love the masterpiece line, but I am afraid prices are getting so high that they may prices collectors out of the market? My Bee is still my favorite with grimlock a close second. Not sure on anime bee yet. Excited to see hound!

    I heard on my way home that a building on my block was burning. Luckily it wasn’t my place but unfortunately the neighbors weren’t so lucky. I think there’s at least two or three Halls worth of Firefighters right outside.

    Inferno’s keeping an eye out for them, wishing he could help. 69591D95-85E0-4383-A897-3A3C9EE6BE3F.jpeg

    That's terrible. Hopefully the occupants are all safe and have some place to go.

    The news said everyone got out safe, thank goodness. 3 alarm fire apparently, but it looks like they’ve just beaten it.

    Sorry to hear it mate, but I'm glad that everyone got out safely.

    On a side note, would we be able to borrow some of those Firefighting Bots Down Under? The whole bloody Country is burning down right now.

    Taking what chance? I’m in my apartment, that’s my window sill. And if you read at all, everyone is safe. I did think about it before posting and decided there’s nothing wrong with reminding people about our Firefighters.

    I’m not losing any sleep if any one likes or doesn’t like my post. Carry on with your evening.

    I'm not what you could call a "real alt mode guy", but I genuinely appreciate them. I often display my TFs in alt mode ... because "robots in disguise"

    Wow. Some of these scenes look gr at. I just recently found out about the MP line of figures, and it totally renewed my love of beast wars- my first favorite show and interest. I have already purchased all the BW MPs. What a hit to the wallet! Anyway, what are the solutions people are using for stands for these things? I don't see a lot of stands in here. I wish the dinobot stand was sold separately but takara. I ordered one off eBay from a 3rd party, but idk if it'll be tight and have the same quality as the one that came with Dinobot. Tamashaii national sh figuarts stands are too small. I see G1 Megatron on a stand in a lot of these pics, so I'm guessing that's one that he came with. That would be a nice one to buy too. Any help and links to items for purchase is appreciated. Merry Christmas to you all!
