    Hmm... Commander Class Cosmos...

    With real UFO abduction feature. And a cow minicon. And micro-scale figures of Mulder and Scully.

    Yeah, his Warrior class figure is certainly lacking. It still has a certain charm but that only counts for so much!

    I've actually been working on a modest custom from his days as an Ultra-class bot (I put the CW version in for scale, but forgot he's the OS KO version, so that doesn't really help..)

    Weird to think I used to live 10 minutes from TFN…. Yet I represent Knottingley and Pontefract on there now!

    In my illicit catchup with Rick & Morty, I accidentally watched Episode 7 as the illicit source somehow has the next next episode (latest is actually Episode 5 but they didn't have 6, I'm very curious as to the wherefores of that), and, well, it's one for Goodfellas fans, and @bcm77 in particular!

    It’s a nice little retool.

    Strongarm Nd soundwave are the only rid ones i have. Having finished the show, am tempted to get grimlock, he may just be my fav version of the character. I'd put him on classics shelf as Greenbite or something. also keep fancying quillfire, he looks cool and unique. And the tractor guy because its a tractor transformer. I agree, never thought of these guys as soldiers in the war. They're just criminals who probably joined the cons because they disagreed with the Autobots rule and are pretty bottom tier. But i like that, it fleshes out the world.

    I love what prime did with soundwave. Wish he stayed totally silent though, that one line was unnecessary. Don't like his voice in rid (or wfc, or animated). The vocoder effect is too much, makes it very difficult to tell what he's saying.

    Tuesday's #deskbot knows the word.

    Bird. Bird is the word.

    Honestly think she's the best Maximal released so far in Kingdom (my bias for Rattrap and Dinobot aside). Great looks and transformation in all modes.
