    That got it. I had the shoulderpad right but the bicep was slightly off. Got my Grim all closed up now. It does mean he can't do his little action pose anymore, so I guess in future it's a choice of closed thighs or cool pose. But at least I can close them now. Thanks!


    Me too, but it didn't help in this case.

    The fact that the only thing that really made me flinch on your list was the two Arks, that should tell you how much I've gone crazy on spending myself last two months. :D

    I no longer list my items using Transformers unless it’s official. I think someone else on here got stung for using it in their listings a while back now but yeah best to avoid.

    Bit annoying, but I use it as a last resort these days since I’d rather you guys get my trash lol

    Just in case it's useful, Pulse are at least claiming Road Rage ships tomorrow. That might be special if you hedged your bets with them AND Comics or whoever though ;)

    No probs, I had a near nervous breakdown after easily transforming Max Grimlock the first time with no issue myself, it's very exacting on the tolerances, and, boy, are most of the Beast Modes of Kingdom like statuettes, even moreso than their OG BW counterparts!

    An all star wave! :D 

    And with that I now only have Artfire on pre-order until Hasbro decides to start actually soliciting new figures again... :/

    P.s. Highly recommend the matrix workshop extras pack for Slag, worth it for the sword and tail filler piece alone.

    Beautiful shot Jon!

    I'm not sure if its just that delightfully cheeky red paint job, the proper flame logo on the hood, or the slightly better QC, but she is nicer than Tracks. Another QC pass, and aye, I'll take a Loudpedal.

    Set the stage for some rage.

    It's true, for animal alt modes, they seem to like restricting their movements. The other week, my wife started messing with kingdom barney in beast mode and I had to stop her and pop his thighs out as she was twisting his legs like you would expect legs to twist, instead of on the rails. You'd expect animals to be poseable but nope.


    As a funny aside, I have kingdom Skywarp here in eagle mode and the gap around his lower beak keeps making me think he's got ketchup around his mouth.

    Feel free.

    And yes, it was one for each mode, a Spare Bot for the then '86 Shelf Line-up, a couple spare in the box and then Friends abroad started jokingly offering them bought in different countries - I think the Brazilian box was the only one that had a sticker difference so as package-variants there wasn't any point.
    International variants aren't a thing anymore.

    So a few years back (Before Siege Springer came along and changed things yet again) I gave a few away to deserving causes - or people that asked.

    I've got four left. And a couple of Sandstorms.

    This counts as progress.

    Anyhoo this was the most expensive five week period in this hobby. I won't be doing it again. *


    *Haslab Star Stabber next month.......:oops:

    Amazing! Water, rocks, it fears no terrain! :eek: 

    Top shot! Now we need a picture of Rattrap and an enclosure sealed with bars. :) 

    PS - I want Loudpedal too. :D  Should come with a musical instrument, or failing that three copies of Tracks' black beam rifle. Will come without either. :( 

    Possibly he's gotten too far into his disguise role, and that's not ketchup at all?

    @Vertex At first I was thinking the front end of the Matchbox Adventure 2000 Missile Carrier but could it be this car transporter truck that retro-future vehicle is reminding you of?

    Change the listing to say Transformers compatible. If they're known KO makers like Black Mamba remove their name too.

    I remember that! I think an extremely battered remnant of the cab survives in a box, possibly at my brother's place. I remember the Missile Carrier too, think I encountered a number of incomplete ones. I think maybe I'm recalling the cab to these two vehicles and combining that with spiky toy tractor wheels. Only I never owned a toy tractor. Almost looks like it should deploy from the Phoenix, but that's not it either. Hmmm!

    (Thanks for the suggestion, very good to see these marvellous things again! :cool: )


    :lol 

    Just move your eyes horizontally from side to side a few times. Then he will know you have eagle eyes too.
