    I get Toyworld Searchlight vibes from him. I like the look of him. Not sure though if its enough to move on the TFCC battlechargers.

    Possibly the best copter mode of any bot so far. And I say that in full view of Spinister and Handsome Springer.

    Gold star SJW! Managed to snare 2 of the wee slithery sneaks.

    Oooh nice. If you have them, the mini guns from rotf highbrow look excellent on him too.

    I've no familiarity with the franchise in question, but I HATE when movies or even TV series now make 'adaptions' of material but ultimately it's just for brand recognition and they make little to no effort to actually make it anything like the source material. I'm thankful that adaptions seem to be moving towards being more faithful but we still see this sucky practice. It's a kind of con really.

    I would like to trade this prize for a G1 SkyLynx please.

    And here's a little bit of Planet eating for a rainy Tuesday morning.

    Agreed, thankfully most of them are DOA! The one that really bugged me recently was Big Trouble in Little China, by all accounts it has little to do with the original! Hopefully it's scrapped now.

    Er, no, it'll reflect whatever you think you can get away with as evidenced in your own earnings call. The market decides either way.

    Oof, handing in my gun nut card because it's the MP7. Looks like someone flipped the calibre and model No. in his tiny pea brain, whoops! :dunce 

    Currently see-sawing every time I spot Streetsnak in-stock on Amazon US, as Dan Larson keeps cropping up in my subconscious A New Hope Dead Obi Wan-style with his, "And leave one for the next collector" and I clear my basket to wait for a later restock. Glad you managed to nab a pair, @MyTea Boc, one is non sufficit, innit?
    Now if the Wave 2 Micros Squads would drop so I can see if it's worth my time to have them catapulted across the Atlantic or to nab a Kapow Imported pair o' pairs if there's little difference, that would be handy.

    Double OOF! :dunce :dunce

    My latest attempt to beat back the black dog via the use of toys is.......magnificent.

    Sky Lynx ordered! :) 

    Will be having a chat with my niece this afternoon and Tuesday is also chippy day so I'm not eating anything else until then because that type of grub always make my blood sugar spike for a bit so if it's nice and stable before I have it I usually do my evening insulin straight before and things stay OK.

    @kgorman79,
    Great pic!

    "Jaws of Death" is rather similar to what I deal with on a daily basis from my ferrets :D

    Just finished watching the new Netflix series last night, so it's safe for me to rejoin the boards and share an image inspired by the first episode :D

    "And there's a fresh one if you mouth off again!"

    In general, I thought the show was just okay. Looked nice, bendy bellies aside. Acting broadly serviceable, characterisation in broad strokes at best. Action sequences mostly plodded along with endless, overused character models battling away with no sense of stakes, with actual deaths being mostly throwaway and hollow.

    Still, if the result was getting people interested in the toys, I hope it works. Needs me some more repaints, stat!

    I did have one, nice figure but not quite deluxe size. Somewhere between deluxe and legend.

    I head-canoned it as a form of nagel/nail* like in German sword(or rather messer)-making style, I guess TR Prime/s practices something like the Cybertronian equivalent of Talhoffer! :p 

    *=Basically a third lateral prong/projection from the weapon's guard that helps protect the knuckles and back of the hand

    Relieved to see it does indeed appear it was cast shadow making it look like Sunstreaker's twatty soul patch was squiffy!

    Yeah, I don't actually have him on display but had a vague recollection of his clear blue sword. It now lives with its new owner forevermore!
