    Today's #deskbot is probably the rarest one in my collection. BotCon 2012 Spinister. I think only 5000 were made? He served as my Scavenger Spinister until Siege and now lives with the my Movie cons, standing out a lot because of his ridiculous colours and I love him. 20210714_093413.jpg

    Short of going to a sowing supply store or a large market to find a ribbon, a place I found them for the whole Bandana look is on some woman's clothes (& occasionally mens) they have a ribbon on the inside of the shoulder to secure them to a coat hanger so they don't slip off.

    So have a romage in a charity shop for green tank tops or something and you may find one with a suitable green ribbon you can repurpose for Shattered Glass Soundwave. I just had a bunch of them laying around but they are every colour But Green unforunately. But they look pretty cool tied around an axe too & can also make a decent belt for an action figure. I guess you could also just get white ribbon and stain it green in a weak solution of green paint and water. I think ribbon works the best though as it has a very fine surface and won't slit or fray on you.

    I've been collecting little scraps like this for years with just that purpose in mind. But I do sometimes use them to make belts for general action figures to secure their accessories to them with too.

    my Galvatron is due to be delivered today so I hopfully will be able to prototype some caps for the shoulders by the weekend and (finally) my toyhax stickers arrived.

    Side note Toyhax charged me $3+ for shipping but the letter says they paid $1,15. I get that it's hard to calculate exact amounts but they shouldn't be over estimating by that much and pocketing the difference.

    Yep, I got an in stock email from IDT for Red Alert this morning so that another figure off the list.

    I've also checked out my local Smyths this morning as they had a listing for "3" Galvatron's (they had 4) appear overnight. All with low shoulders, but I bought one anyway.

    Buying quite a bit off one guy on Facebook because he's having to move soon. (DM me guys, he's got a few bits and is VERY reasonable)
    Ultra Magnus came yesterday. I wasn't sure about him, particularly because he doesn't come with his hammer, but my word: TFP Voyager bots are INCREDIBLE.

    Think my favourite is the Dreadwing/Skyquake mold. I’d love them to get a two pack reissue or something like that.
