Had a good father's day with a Kup and zombot from the kids, a trip to smyths to spend their savings and a cheeky cheap ractonite for me. Except one of the kids 'adopted' it before I got it home. If I'm lucky I may get it back...
First impressions of kup are that the things that were giving me pause in getting him myself are still niggles (the huge hands, the massive long face and chin). However, the transformation is pretty impressive, I'm surprised how much he compacts down.
As for his face, he's always had a squarer head in my mind. Been thinking about trimming his chin down. I've looked at the thread here:
Minor/Repaint: - Studio Series 86 Kup
Has anyone attempted it and how easy was it?
"Best thing about Earth?! Listen, this pathetic mudball is nothing but another is a series of glorious Predacon conquests, where... we... aaaand Megatron's gone. Right, so there's this really great poetry club on Hermann strasse in East Berlin where they let me in if I keep mostly quiet and sit at the back where the ceiling's a bit higher. Anyway, some of the jams they have on stage are just... wow. Blew me away more than a few times, I can tell you. I'll write down the address if you want, just... Aw crap, Megatron is coming back..."
I have done something I may regret if I can't sell a few things from my collection. Honestly the kick up the arse I need to clear some space.
I can’t believe they actually let that traced Robotech bot through!!
I’ve done a good few builds now, starting with the Scarecrow - a pretty good place to start I reckon - and right up to the Agnirage - the biggest most complex kit so far - and I’ve really enjoyed them all.
I’d say the Governor figures are the worst thing, tbh - Not worth the cost and VERY fiddly - but on the whole I think it’s great.
I’d definitely have gone for FT Tesla but I’m done even looking at FT now. I don’t have the money to just jump on shit and pay their jacked up prices, let alone taking artificial scarcity and scalpers into account.
SELL! SELL! SELL!
I'm not a Masterpiece collector but I would really like a MP Megs to go with MP Op.
A KO with the G1 toy head looks fab! Think it was the Magten which had the red inner calves?
Any owners recommend an MP36 variant!
True enough, usually my favourites for the euros to be fair.
Fixed that for you.
It would be interesting to hear what was possibly planned for the big lad.
That is some class A blasphemy. Keep it up
Dont tempt me frodo
Alota seekers. Got to love those entries.
I always thought it weird after he gets rebuilt the Autobots didn't all turn to each other and say 'fuck lads, these hobos can bring the dead back. Go get primes corpse'
I wish I had an inner Yorkshireman.
I doubt you'll regret that purchase man.
I’d recommend this one by IT. New stock available or close to being available. You might be able to grab it for £70-80. Has been up in the £100+ territory.
This is the one I would recommend too. Have it and great non-chipping paint and tight joints. I got the first run that came with a second fusion cannon with english voices. Not sure he comes with that in the later runs.
Magten is fantastic @robotmel
Nice! I looked at these a few months ago and wasn’t sure if they’d be any good. Probably gonna get some now
The amount Kingdom Rodimus is going for on eBay is just..wow. I know he’s only out in very few places right now so I get that to some extent, but some sellers are taking the piss! Galvatron isn’t much better. I was hoping to try and find an early copy on the sly but no bueno.
IS it all that green? Looks pretty navy-grey to me. I mean, the muted colours give a slight impression of green, but that's what'd happen when you turn down the saturation anyway.
Blatant handballing is definitely more of an offence than being an overrated gobshite
I saw one of these in a hobby shop in Amsterdam a couple of years ago, and it’s a very weird colour honestly. I’m not even sure what it is, but those pictures make it look way lighter than it is.
Agreed. I don't usually go for KOs but I was disappointed with the paint on the official... and fancied repainting it up in Marvel colours. This KO is IMHO superior to the official, more durable paint, extra diecast, a light in the cannon(s) even an English voice chip if that floats your boat.
More G.I. Joe Construction Sets Coming From Forever Clever
Which one is that? Mimic?
Certainly seems to be an indication of the wobbly writing to come in Season 3 but then I remember his originally-planned death-by-quartering was nixed due to censorship, NOT being exploded-by-lasers but tugged-to-bits makes way more sense to a superior repair ability of the Junkions solution, and wouldn't have created that internal inconsistency. Having established that in the film though worfing the Junkions in Return Of Optimus Prime to have a Quintesson do it is a bit sus, yeah? Clearly someone had too much of a hard-on for their (pants IMHO) newly-concocted Quintesson Origin for the TFs. Gimme "evolved from a series of naturally occurring gears, levers, and pulleys" instead any day!
The one next to that one just labelled 'Decepticon'. Very poor indeed.
Kapow have added 9 items to their sale, mostly ML and SW I think? I got another Legends Prof X to make Norman Osborne, Ozzy's even madder brother.
