    Titans Return who?

    A huge thank you to @Maz for allowing me to experience a piece of 3P history I thought I'd missed out on forever. 12 year old me is squealing right now. So happy.

    Also, those Double Evil pics are insane. Just saying.

    Very nice. I have the Sonic Bomber-inspired repaint of Brainstorm there, and he's a joy to behold, with the most insane transformation I think I've ever seen. For anyone that's not experienced the mould, the wings fold away into the legs, and most of the nosecone manages to hide away inside the body. You end up with an almost entirely kibble-free robot, although the hips on mind tend to do quite a wobble. He's just sassy.

    I still need to pick up the Highbrow and Skullcruncher from that line. Odd that I didn't as the TR toys never even wandered onto the horizon as an alternative.

    What Brainstorm is that, because I feel a need.

    My Skywarp set arrived today! Only 5 days after dispatch!!

    These will be the only Seige figures I buy. They will sit with my TR Box Sets. I really just wanted to own the Starscream mold as it just looks amazing and I wanted some of those blasted effects parts you can only get with the Battlemasters (see what I did there? :p )

    Fansproject Function X Smart Robin, and the Sonic Bomber redeco is called Combes Robin. They like their anagrams, see.

    Bloody Nora you lot don't half fill up a few pages - trying to catch-up on Hotel Wi-Fi is like using 90's dail-up!

    image.jpeg

    That's waiting at home for me, with by the sounds of it my Refracktor and Brunt so my 'Cons are basically walking away with the Siege honours and numbers thus far. It's going to take opening Jetfire and whenever Omega turns up to level that field a bit.

    AmazWarpers note that that's the box as posted by them, no outer packing and my Son has shown me the postal label on the other side of the box so I can see a few of these looking less than pristine when people start getting them through.

    Now all I have to do is get through the next five days without a)killing the Family or b) the Family killing me and it should be a relatively nice homecoming...............

    Fansproject's Smart Robin. He was the main draw of the set for me, one of my mini grails from way back when I started collecting. Only took 7 years or so! :D 

    EDIT: Ninja'd by @Imperator!

    @motorthing My Greenlight recently was exactly the same.

    I’m not sure if some folk consider those cardboard “sleeves” as part of the package - but if they come out of retailer case like that; that’s a bit naughty on the part of Big Evil.

    A bloody Jiffy bag would suffice if need be.

    Thankfully mine was fine and ALL her packing was destined for the recycling anyways, but certainly something folk need to be switched on to.

    Oh, but a TRUE ninja consultant would never admit to it.

    It's weird but I'd have to say maybe but not yet? At least for me. I got a strange ambivalence - it's not like I'm not enjoying the figure, or that anything looks at all off or anything, I am loving owning a Marvel UK Comics Springer with hella poseability, I know he's 'Toon style but for me, in-hand those colours are four colour comics printing gloriously vivid.
    All that taken the rigorousness of the transformation (for which my affection is slowly increasing) and the not-quites of his weapons when compared to that sublime T30 sword transformation, in a line of such a high watermark he might be a highlight but not the foremost?

    Thanks. IIRC he comes with the unmasked head and getting the proper head requires buying something else, so that sucks. Also it's old so I'm probably not going to be able to get it anyway.

    Does anyone have G1 hoists headpiece, 2 orange back spikes and the tiny green square from the roof of his car?

    Also any chance on anyone having the reprolabels?

    Hmm... no word on my Siege Springer yet. This... this is fine. I'm fine.

    I'm not fine...

    This is what I get for ordering him a few weeks after everyone else... :lol
