    That last season tried so hard to be something.

    And Masterpiece Transformers are still a thing.

    I nearly screwed up transforming all of my Diaclone MPs while watching that season. Good thing I took a break from carving my diorama at that time.

    There's rumor that they are trying to revive the series through Disney Plus. Have you ever attempted to use toilet paper as a sculptamold alternative?

    I transformed Hound, I don't care for the flimsy plastic they opted to use. Glad I don't play with my figures. Nor do I plan to transform him back. I opted to leave all the hidden pieces off to avoid unnecessary strain on panels.

    Also, on the subject of project helpers, a very old image of a now very dead cat who was very much alive at the time despite appearances.

    There's a slight story behind this MP.

    I was actually looking around for a reasonable price for MP-29+ and got one. My copy of MP-29+ arrived from Manda via DHL and I ordered it via EMS five days before Mandarake posted the Suspension of Mailing on their International webpage. Two days before the payment was due, I emailed the Nayuta branch if there is a possibility to change the shipping to EMS to DHL to speed things up as EMS was delayed.

    Agreement was made and I paid the difference. Shipping was done on Friday, came in the DHL Depot in Vancouver, British Columbia on Monday, got nabbed in Custom Fees. Paid the fees last night and got delivered today, plus totally disinfected the entire box before opening it (highly unlikely, however rather be safe that sorry). Delivery guy was also taking pre-cautions as well with the gloves and mask.

    This is the Shockwave that I was looking forward to get, not the lilac looking one despite the inconsistencies in the overall appearance. Coil is still in the package until I get my MP shelf up again.

    My camera didn't pick up the dark rich purple as it picks it up in blueish-purple hue on the screen however it shows a light purple in this pic anyways.

    Does this remind anyone of the song: "One Eyed, One Eyed Giant Purple People Eater" to a degree? :p

    For my first two dioramas, I used glue, screen wire and paper towels. Not enough to effectively sculpt any real forms.

    I still like Hound and understand the problems with him. I hope in the future, Takara will iron out all of the issues and re-release him.

    Awesome shots everyone!
    Thanks @Sam for the shot of pos-penicilin, during these weird and scary times, it sure is needed.

    so, I was admiring the ReAction figures online and almost bought some (for the wrong reasons) and thought of rearranging my collection into having static poses.
    I like it (for now). Here ya go:

    That’s me being lazy, I didn’t have the box to put those accessories away.
    I like your take on it a helluva lot more!
