    Yep, I’d concur with your findings thus far, my two favourite cars as well.

    just opened Siege Shockers; this really is the getup of a truly mad scientist! :lol

    I emailed Nick and he said they were getting stock in today and sending them out as quickly as they can.

    Just some Friday night pre-drink musings;

    I think ER screamer is up there as one of the best figures we’ve had so far in WFC. Like my chum @Skywarp SCS, I am really excited to get the other seekers - and I don’t recall ever thinking that about seekers!

    8085BBD7-9E40-4448-9971-571FEB383B79.jpeg 9B965AA5-10BE-46DC-A1AE-802D75DF0F2C.jpeg

    If I had to pick my top 5 so far it would be Siege OP, ER OP, siege sideswipe, siege jetfire and ER screamer. If you pushed me for a top 10 then I’d add Wheeljack, skytread, Spinister, prowl and UM. Really enjoying this line, we’ve had some proper gems.

    right, bring me my wine!!

    I wish they'd do the two most classic Daredevil and occasional Spidey goons - Grotto and Turk.

    Oh, and speaking of goons, if anyone here paid scalper money for Gigawatt please slam your head in the nearest door until you stop twitching.

    The Walmart exclusive one is listed on eBay for between $800-$3000 if you're desperate.

    That figure is indeed what I'm looking for! However the price on it is just... hmm material.

    Lambos completed! (for now). Thanks Q Prime for sending G2SS, awesome looking alt mode and the closest thing to KITT, until we get KITT! Love G1SS too, but Red Alert is my favourite. Love the colour scheme, and every single joint on him is perfect, while both the others have various examples of too tight or too loose. Folding up G1SS's feet for the first time was genuinely terrifying!

    That 'battle damage' on G2SS is the most half arsed pathetic attempt at anything I've ever seen! I dont mind the effect in general, but they havent tried to make it look like anything other than 2 paint splodges by a 3 year old. Doesn't feel like it can just scrape off like it can on others either. Still, look at them perfect size noses!

    Really, i just wanted to use a pic of Red somewhere.

    Had a mini rearrange. Trypticon does look rather spiffy with sweeps crawling all over. But to keep it official or replace tr Galvatron with mania king?
