Thanks for that.
I’m just going off a description I read, it was probably just a lazy explanation at the time to explain why he was both Autobot and Decepticon.
*EDIT* the continuity I’m talking about is the Dreamwave G1 continuity, and Doubledealer is his own middle ground dude but his powermasters are loyal to the different factions respectively. I got confused on if he was just a lifeless transector or not.
Doubledealer - Transformers Wiki
Kitten has got more out of the packaging than I got out of the toy.
Sure, I’ll never be able to transform it, but WOOHOOOO!!! C’maaaaaaan Bluestreak!!!
*repeatedly chants BLUESTREAK, BLUESTREAK, BLUESTREAK*
Screw it, I’m think I’ll be cancelling the preorder for Airwave, seeing as by the time it would ship it would be available in Smyths. At least, so long as it actually goes to Smyths...
Leave it just in case, you never know what the hell Hasbro are up to.
Partly why I’m still going to preorder Arcee and Airwave because as you say you never know. I’m not sure if they’re just deciding to play silly buggers or it’s related to the worldwide disease currently throwing a spanner into the works everything. Who knows?
I wonder when Scorponok and Doubledealer will show up in Smyths? I’m going to go and check it out next week I think. Don’t have the means to return a figure like Scorponok without buying in person so if something is wrong I won’t have to worry.
HasTak should hire him to replace Warden, since his company regularly shames the shoddiest end of their products with ease.
Shame about the leg articulation in bull mode and the stupid tampos. Still getting him though.
Did you see that someone posted a messenger conversation with Cang online and they confirmed that once they’ve done Predaking they want to do Volcanicus and Abominus?
Wondering if anyone can help me here and point me toward anywhere that still has the Beelzeboss Honor Shield kit for Generations Trailbreaker in stock?
Also looking for the two DNA upgrade sets for Metroplex.
I snoozed and losed.
Would definitely like to see abmonius, but should Dinobots ever combine......No they should not
Glad it's not just me then. I like him well enough but he does feel like they went "Yeah, that'll do...." Once they'd got his outline and basic functions done. The legs are fucking awful by current standards.
"So why aren't you a Merc?"
"No idea chief - guess they couldn't be arsed,"
"Yeah, I'm guessing they didn't think this Third Faction stuff through"
Smyths were offering home delivery on DD so a store appearance should be soon. Happily/sadly my store got a massive restock recently which means until stuff moves...
Transformers Earthrise Doubledealer Out At UK Retail - Transformers News - TFW2005
Oh, they're amazing, but I can't ever afford them with my other habits! Just posted for whoever.
Oh that’s fantastic! I’ll definitely be on the lookout for Scorponok while I’m there too.
Well you’re in luck on Doubledealer! I spotted him in Smyths St Helens about half an hour ago, so he is out in the wild now. Happy hunting!
Also, big props to @Siege Fan for selling me Siege Prowl for £6 (his head will hopefully go great on Earthrise Prowl when he’s finally released)
I don’t know what you were saying about him only having one leg though, he stands perfectly fine (Not an optical illusion btw!)
Fortunately about to be paid again so I think I’ll definitely have that! Hopefully gonna be able to get my hands on the Selects Micromasters too.
I've stopped keeping track of the exact amount of money being spent (as long as it generally looks manageable, I don't need to know). But I know it's a lot, especially with all these Titan and Commander class bots in the mix!
Are you like the main character from Memento? Do you just keep buying Brunts because you've forgotten you already have him?
My spreadsheet is mostly so I don't forget things I've paid for months ago. This way, I know when to expect things and when I should look to chase outstanding orders.
"Where's a Micromaster when you need one?"
@saucesmithco More 'how many adds up to insane?' lol
I use mine for all sorts, pre-orders, potential purchases, 'wait for price drop', returns...
Back from Poland and after getting more paints at the Warhammer store in a Warsaw I have continued painting Chromia, Optimus and TR Bee.
Well, Brian, you'll get no argument from me that he's a massive improvement on the T:30 version.
I got the same feeling from him that I got from Astrotrain. After the triumphs of Siege Magnus and Shockwave, these two feel a bit limp and half baked.
Part one of an occasional series titled 'No, you're dealing with lockdown badly and are making weird impulse purchases'
Honestly, I wouldn't paint balljoints, unless at a push they were fairly loose from the off. If I absotively positlutely had to recolour a ball joint it'd be by dye, whose ball joints in particular by the by?
Nice to see you have an appropriate Familiar, you warlock!
(Kidding respect for going for the discriminated colour of kitty!)
Man that Judge Doom is surely their Inspector Gadget lazily recoloured, innit?
So Payload, yeah, the poor bugger's boned without his actually-armed colleagues to hand - but no more! (At least on MY shelf!)
The guys called "Payload", he should have a big gun!
He needs Sky Blast to hold it for him while transporting though!
But when Sky Blast's away, his gun can keep him company (I'm almost certain he's named it and talks to "her" when no one else is about)!
As for Sky Lynx launch mode - he was holding it/her all along in that prior couple of pics but in a total cheat on the off-camera side at angle perfectly obscured by Sky Blast!
