    Yep, wasn't trying to correct anyone's grammar at all - just didn't think the "B" should have been there! :D

    Well, my day has been brightened by the arrival of this little guy. G1 Seaspray was one of the few Mini Autobots that I had, and I loved him for being so unique - there were very few seafaring Transformers at the time. The new version is superb, capturing everything I loved about the original, but with actual articulation. If I hadn't got Topspin last week this would be a genuine contender for my favourite TR figure! 20170914_125120.jpg

    I use the lens flare effects (far right on the options bar) rotated and scaled for flashes and lighting etc.

    Quick and easy tweak this:

    In to this:

    Great pic and both are cool, though I prefer the second meself.

    Or stack a couple of them, e.g. laser blast:
    PicsArt_09-14-01.18.40.jpg
    Image darkened, slight green hue added and two flares stacked, rotated, aligned, etc. Pretty easy to do fast effects.

    I'm still kind of baffled as to why Hasbro didn't just make Nautica out of this new Windblade.

    That is a very sexy alt mode. Very nice!

    Cheers on the pic. Yeah, i think i'm leaning towards preferring the 2nd one too.

    Pretty cool robot mode. Just a really good figure all round. Not got round to taking "nice" pics of him yet though. Here's one from my phone the other night.

    While I'm here, here's today's Movie-themed deskbots keeping me company. Hot Rod likes "New Day Rising" while Magnus is more of a "Candy Apply Grey" type. Galvatron was never really into Husker Du, too busy listening to Minor Threat and Bad Brains. Spike likes Foo Fighters. No one likes Spike.

    CALENDAR UPDATE.

    Wait, what? I thought I said I was finished and wasn't going to spam those pictures anymore? Well, I'm not... these are the bonus pages.

    So... remember those Top Trumps cards I did just before TFN for Bob Budiansky to sign? Well, why not make some cut out sheets for you people? Now, an admission, these have been sized slightly down so I could get all 30 cards onto 3 sheets.

    I will also do a limited edition Shitbot card that will only be available for for first print run people! I'll show that... well once I've done it.
