    Yes and it's that white plastic and weathering.

    Still pre-ordered it but if that is the final version then I'm breaking out the paints on him.

    To robot mode absolutely
    To vehicle mode, the arms need a little fiddling to get it all tabbed in but other than that.
    Haven't tried arm mode yet.

    Caravan splits into 2 to form the calves and feet for combined mode and the ankle tilts go to 90 degrees and feel solid.

    Its the white plastic for sure. Hasbro always seems to have issues doing pure white or a good red plastic - I miss Takara releases for this reason. Takara Drift, United Jazz - both looked better due to the quality of the white.

    I'm okay with Hasbro's Jazz as the details are mostly in the paint work anyway. But there's similar problems with some grey plastic, notably used for TR Megatron. I don't think colour is the issue as much as material, and whatever it is, it's that little bit more translucent and details don't cast shadows on themselves as visibly as other plastic types.

    As per the usual, Sod’s law is in full effect. After spending money on robits yesterday, today I find that I could have gotten the IF Lambros for £70 and the IF Dynobots for £100. Been after those bloody Lambros for a while now as well. CURSE YOU GAWD.

    Hah! Success! I hatched a plan to make a great big epoxy blob on a piece of clear plastic, fill it up with these tiny loose bricks and then peel the plastic off... and it worked! Now I can paint the bricks up all together (unless the paint manages to dissolve the glue, which would be a glorious piece of irony).

    Lego The Flash is there for scale purposes, to show that all this will accomplish is a stupid tiny pile of rubble. Time well spent!

    Couple of rarely seen treasures from my collection.

    Four Star Phantom I've just repurposed for G2.

    And Diaclone Waruder Walk Insector (which I actually forgot I had, how bad is that?). The small Powered suit looks very similar to the bad guy suit from Inner Space.

    The Lambros are that expensive now? Should have jumped on the train when it was 40!

    Someone asked if this was possible in the Siege Springer thread, and it is?!

    Only advisable for short flights though as they're heavier and the flat-sided pegs of the Lionizers don't have the grip to cope with their own weight after a bit of spinning! :lol

    It's a Four Star Phantom F15. Basically a high end vintage KO of the sleeker mold.with a few modifications to make it more unique. They did one in black and one in creamy-white, but I've yet to find a white one in acceptable condition. This one was immaculate with a buggered box, which is perfect for me.

    Also, Brunt is way more fun than either of the SS Dropkicks.

    In all honesty, WJ omega is all about the bot mode IMO, you’re not missing much in base mode, I could take or leave it. I take it you are still planning on getting siege omega?

    The Springsperiment reminded me I was yet to paint up these guys to differentiate 'em, so a bit of chrome silver for Nightstalker and the gold fella's...un... Leo-9?

    It's a very ruddy/rose gold to my eye but gold nonetheless!
