    You, Sir, let me know the moment that lands with you. Me wants. Me need.

    Also: thank you.

    Well this was an absolute nightmare but I feel you can sort of tell what it is, will see what it looks like painted

    Spawn 7" She-Spawn And Cy-Gor Megafig Revealed

    Maybe Dark Redeemer, but then I haven't found the green version anywhere... She-Spawn looks interesting but maybe too busy. Which is saying something for this line!
    ...

    There's a couple of bids in, no harm having a go :)

    I appreciate I'm asking something obvious - but the GI Joe stuff will be available Saturday night as their panel is Saturday, right ?

    This is Hasbro we're talking about here, and I'm out Friday night and don't want to miss Zartan :D

    Just realised with the impending addition of Hotlink, I’ve got Shockwave, Bombshell, Soundwave, Reflectors, the Constructions, I’m making a custom of Deluge, so I’m very close to having my own Decepticon science division. I think Sparkstalker was a data miner, and Flatlines a medic? Any other Decepticon scientists outside of the ones so far?

    Sparkstalker I’m thinking Cutthroat, and wasn’t Flatline based on Trailbreaker?

    Huh, I thought he was based on Trailbreaker, guess I’ll have to look for some version of Skids…. The shoulder guns convince me, so looks like a hella armed medic…..

    Apologies to m'learned colleague but to my knowledge (and accordingly to the Wiki) he's based specifically on the T30 "Ooopsies, we lost the copyright" Trailcutter Deluxe.

    So, if you fancy a more imposing Flatline you could try hunting down the OSKO version, though that may not be easy at this time so much later out the gate.
    i just did a cheeky, lazy G1-ifying, and made him out of ER TB with a Hoist headswap myself.

    Love that the speakers for the "sound & light show" can tab into his thigh slots aaaaaaaaaaaaalmost in the right place for the G1 'Toon robot mode hip-deployment!

    I see, thanks :) 

    Oh wow, applause worthy indeed! :rock 

    Ooh that could work. Mostly if I get another one of that mold I don't want another grey + Colours. I mean I know 'Thrust' has the collar thing going on too but.. meh.

    Massive respect to you for doing that :thumb 

    Still looks pretty good! And being Junkions, the few dents and stuff work fine :) 

    Also forgot to say before, yesterday I took delivery of FoC Grimlock, a second PotP Dreadwind and another Blowpipe from @Brum Bot . Thanks again! Dreadwind will be going towards a custom version of Galvatronus. Basically giving Cyclonus his own set of jets. And armada if you will ;) 
    Already just straight up giving him Dreadwind and Darkwing, second Dreadwind is unnamed yet but will be getting some paint down the line but for now I've popped the wings out and have them put in on opposite sides to give a swept forward look. He also has the wings in their robot mode position in jet mode so the wings sweep forward from the rear of the aircraft :) 
    I've not decided who I'll use for the fourth member yet...

    Everytime @Seeaich whips out pics of flatline I get a little jealous.

    @Genodectes I think idw thunderwing was a scientist type fella.

    Hasbro seems very excited that they hired a comedian for their stream.
    I'm not sure if imagining Hasbro is like an over eager Puppy or a 6 year old who just showed you their crayon drawing is the best metaphor here.

    I wonder if Runabout/Runamuck was repainted as someone or something (maybe with a new head) what would work with that mould ?

    Damm, today was a somewhat cr*p day. The rain was pouring so heavily you could at times barely see in front of you. Plus I crushed my finger under a 25kg weight at the school gym, so I'm hoping my fingernail doesn't come right off. On a more minor note my predicted date for my Amiami order also didn't come to fruition to brighten up my day.
    I could see some of the Throttlebots coming from the Runabro mold, or the infantry guys from Devastation.

    Any of the outstanding (or even already done) sports car Throttlebots (Chase/Roadburn, Searchlight, Freeway), and/or orange & blue recolours with Runabout's head (but with a blank visor replacing the eyes/nose part) as the Ground Soldiers Warrior & Sergeant from the Devastation game. INSTABUYS ALL!
