Yeah, I noticed that in the pictures, but in person it's a lot more proportional.
So I bought a Classics Thrust off a Facebook group a while ago. Should've arrived a week ago but the bloke just got his package sent back to him - he'd forgotten to put the house number on! Poor chap.
I just saw Deadpool 2 - plenty of LOL moments and it really leads you all over the place.
Also - Brolin nails Cable.
It sorta tickles me that were so used to natural human proportions being altered for aesthetics at different scales means when we see the correct ones in scale for a lot of folk they look weird or wrong!
I did a quick check and, yup, she's roughly 6 heads or so, so closer to naturalistic scale (at least in height).
I also think it has to do with the fact that the body is sculpted as if she's wearing a skin tight suit, while the head is uncovered, giving an unnatural perspective where the body seems a lot slimmer than it actually is in comparison. Also, the focus on my phone's camera is shagged and the glass shattered and fell out, so that probably doesn't help...
Well, that's why I said "at least in height" there's clearly some of the ol' female heroic proportioning going on there at the waist, abs n' bust but without the compromise of the joints apart from the cinched waist I reckon she wouldn't be so far off the real thing proportionally! I'm actually rather impressed with that sculpt for that.
It's a damned good sculpt, so good it keeps setting off the facial recognition on my phone, which only ever happens when there's no faces to look at
They even gave her Lilly's green eyes, but you can only see those with a lot of light.
They look more hazel there, but trust me, they're green
Hey guys, literally just joined because I have a burning question: Do we know when Power of the Primes Elita-1 and Moonracer are reaching the UK? I really want to make another all female combiner.
Anyways, here are some pictures of my girl Victorion! Photos are probably a bit meh, used my phone and the background is just a blanket draped onto the floor haha.
I quite like just messing around with all the different positions the legs and arms can go in
Reaching out for you!
''My sword is the sword that shall pierce the heavens!''
For me it's about the journey. Yes, the end wil be undone, but how and at what cost?
Also remember, 10 year olds don't know the tropes. This is their generation Death Of Optimus Prime. Glad you found some enjoyment in it though.
Monaco during a Grand Prix is something to behold, even for a non-petrolhead like me.
Sorry to all who were awaiting replies, should be caught up now.
Happy birthday to all I missed.
Much love to everyone.
Hi and welcome to the boards, hope you have a great time here
(Cool pictures btw)
As for your question, Elita and Moonracer are currently sold out in Kapow and only available alongside their wavemates at BBTS and TCP, but, they are available at Amazon for a higher price than retail
Elita 1: https://www.amazon.com/Transformers...26513805&sr=1-19&keywords=power+of+the+primes
But if you don't want to pay more you could wait for Kapow to have them back in stock or try Ebay, as well as trying physical stores but it probably may be a waste of time due to Hasbro's recent bad job at sending new waves to the stores.
Thank you for your response
I feared that might be the answer
I did see that Forbidden Planet had them for pre order, would have been 30 quid all told including shipping, however when I went on their site today it said ''unavailable.'' Same case for Moonracer. Might phone them and see if this is true.
Thank you for telling me about these sites, I was unaware of them. Am tempted to get them from Amazon but its such a hefty markup it doesnt seem worth. Whats the usual time scale for getting them into physical stores?
The usual time I'm not really sure of, it could be around 4-6 months from reveal to hitting shelves which was the case with Wave 1 (were revealed around June at SDCC and released around the end of November- start of December), but I can say that the 2nd wave of Prime Masters was recently sighted in the UK so the Deluxes and Voyagers may not be that far behind now.
Nothing helpful to add to @Leopard5's answer, but welcome new friend, I hope you enjoy it in here. Nice pics too
It just occurred to me this morning, are we still waiting for POTP Rodimus Unicronus to ship out? I don’t recall seeing anything recent about him and to be honest, he’s kinda fallen off my radar!
Many thanks guys. Had an awesome day yesterday, even with no robots involved.
We get a Grand Prix here* in September every year and the central parts of the city are transformed. In general, the main shopping streets are covered with F1 cars on display, Ferraris on every road and pit girls in all the clubs. Its fun.
Cheers bud, not looking at the moment though, got to stop spending now or I'll have no money for TFNation (that and I already have too many robots anyway)
Happy belated birthday @CyberShadow
Ok Infinity Wars tomorrow, this time for good. Excited !
And bon belated anniversaire to @CyberShadow, les bisous.
Nottingham robot company just got some rodimus unicronus in.
Welcome @AllHailFry hope you have fun here. Also keep an eye on the Nottingham robot company. They might get some in. I like how you've set up a car and heli as one each instead of the usual car pair for arm.
*pimp mode off
Transformed yots omega back into robot mode last night. With the add on kit. Mmmmmmm forgot what a good solid toy that guy is.
That’s encouraging, I pre-ordered with Kapow so hopefully they’ll start making their way out soon.
