    I remember seeing him and Soundwave in a Tesco’s totally at random in the wrong aisle, always thought he was pretty decent and looked good with the Combaticons. Nice size too for a desk toy

    Good that you can continue home-working while you finish off the chemo mate. Chuffed to bits to hear there are no cancer markers in your blood. hope that the last round of chemo passes quickly.

    I may be alone in this, but I'd like to see the Earthrise Megatron mold get the Premium finish treatment. I only have the G2 version, but I like what it does better than the Siege mold. But that stock grey is a little sad. bring on the premo paint

    Fair dos. I sold on Bee and BA from the set myself, didn't exactly profit from it, but it did help to take the sting out of the set. Couldn't part with evil munky man. He's just too purple and glare-y.

    Sorry to hear that Joseph, hope you kick the depression in the dick. If you ever need an ear to bend I'm just a DM away.

    They're sending me another copy of Blurr's comic since mine was practically rolled up... Still haven't gotten a shipping notice for Megs even though they've taken the money.

    Getting to grips
    PicsArt_10-05-11.11.02.jpg

    Once again, massive thanks to @privatespoon for hooking me up with the TFC Brainmasters. I've had a few days messing with the individual bot modes (forgot how involved some 3p transformations can be - not that I'm complaining), and finally ready to combine them into the big lad.

    Gripper was the only Motovator I owned as a kid, and he was a favourite - closest thing to a Headmaster I had as a kid.

    A bit too old, overdressed and fond of much younger women, Draculus was perfect to replace Daniel Craig.

    Can’t do anything with them till later but I found them eventually! Fast Track can join his buddies in the collective, and I’ve got to decide whether any of these need new heads or weapons prior to repainting.

    The trailer isn't just QC riddled, its full of really piss poor and ill thought out design choices that most Transformers fans would identify within 30 minutes of fiddling with the toy. Which is a shame as there really is enough going on and had it been well done, enough to justify the jump from Leader to Commander. I might do a full list later.

    But this. This is good. After DX9 Carry it is my second favourite Rodimus and my favourite mainline Roddy. The longer bigger Hot Rod sticking out of the front of the trailer is the one thing I thought I'd hate but it actually really works.

    Can someone please explain to Hasbro what happens with exhausts if you remove a few centimetres in the middle. They could have moved the hinge up to the top part, or even better made the parts removable accessories. As a kid I would have definitely plugged huge exhausts into forearms as massive guns. Would have been much cheaper than Assembly of a pointless spring-loaded part too and opened the door to more Weaponizer ports.
