    I was looking to see what the price of G1 Blitzwings are these days since I ordered the Legends+ scale Thunderbolt from MFT and would like to have them side by side. Came across this instead :p

    Awww, thanks y'all. Really appreciated.

    @Shepard Prime and @Xaran Alamas - Ta for picking up on that. Setting up the shot with posing, angles and (as much as I can get away with indoors) lighting just makes the next bit that much easier. And fun!

    Milliput or plastic shavings melted in solvent are the two main methods. Milliput being the easier starter option.

    After selling it, and having remorse ever since, finally picked this back up from @Destronus

    Why is this guy so big, without even a single minicon port?

    For some reason I like a Shockwave that looks like he can go toe to toe against Megatron, just like the early comics.

    The seller did something similar for Blurr...

    I don't mind that humour from sellers on Ebay (and his descriptions/condition of items are usually spot on from previous purchases from him).

    Interesting video on that ML Sentinel. Out of curiosity I looked at video reviews for the thing and one copy had loose knees, another was prone to doing the splits etc, but it didn't seem massively widespread. I would not be happy getting loose joints on such a big and expensive figure for sure, but is it that widespread?

    It could be an element of cut corners? I mean, I can't fathom why both knee joints were not made with strong ratchets like Omega Supreme/The Ark's shoulders?

    Star Saber is a much smaller [in size] release so I am not worried, but stress marks on most KD Rodimus I've seen [and my own] do bring a degree of hesitancy on.

    Did I see one [or more] of you chaps selling Siege deluxes a few days ago? I may be interested in the Autobot "cars" if so.

    I second Milliput. The biggest job I've used it for so far was my custom Nemesis Rodimus. Once it cures, it's durable as heck. Bonus that it's both paint applicable and can be sanded (even by dremel if need be) for corrections.

    Even the G1 cartoon, much like the comics, has him beefy. It's why it's such a head-scratcher Hasbro made the Seige version the size that he is.

    1mm styrene should be good, you can shape it and sand it if its too thick and glue it together if its too thin...very versatile
