    Had to have that galvatron, I’m a compete sucker for clear transformers and as this one will probably have correct shoulders it passes my ‘no duplicates’ rule by the thinnest of margins.

    now…where the hell is pipes??

    Given Scorponok (city mode sky scape) was in the launch artwork for wfc long before it was announced formally as the er titan and the ark in artwork for kingdom before announcements; seeing cybertron at the core for legacy launch artwork aligns to a titan primus coming. Hopefully not just the easter egg hint for cybertron metroplex, although the hints & pointers for that were long ago too.

    So I ended up getting Galvatron, Ravage and Kickback. I'm so excited for Galvatron though, he looks really cool :D

    I'll hold off on preorders for Legacy Wave 1 purely to get Chrimbo dusted and sweep up any random 3P and exclusives I'm up for that might pass me by in the interim. May wait for general stock. Wave 1 is always oversold.

    Jeez, Black Series Trapper Wolf is sold out on Pulse and ID already.

    My mate will be pissed when he realises that "I'll order one in the morning" was not the right call.

    Have to say that the regular fist-encapsulating (I assume) 2-part mace fist, and the fact that in alt. mode you can open up his wee tailgate, and peek in the back at it like it's a nuclear bomb core he's transporting are wonderful bits of design that have utterly sold me on what is very obviously "G1" Bulkhead, this is the Bulkhead my horrible, philistine Animated aesthetic disliking self has always secretly wanted.
    I still want even more gear for him though, like extra guns, a version of the pneumatic hammer thing NuRID had, and a chain/other method wrecking ball extension fist cover to go with it!

    Anyone else find laser prime a bit off proportions wise? Not sure what it is. Maybe the shoulder to leg width ratio

    Also the combined weapon is bollocks.

    Kickback and Dragstrip at IDT but purple Galvatron with Pulse as considerably cheaper than IDT.

    Events have left me with Netflix Bumblebee again, selling for £48 delivered. Oh, and T-Wrecks for £41 delivered. Both MISB.

    The Joan Collins Shoulder Pads emphasise how short his arms are in a way the ER Prime's lack of them doesn't (and in combination kinda lampshade his anime shins). The combined weapon wouldn't be so bad if the axe didn't look, well...a bit pizza cutter. I think tabbing in the Matrix does help it look a bit less naff though.

    Torso could be longer, thighs/lower legs could be shorter. Mazzy shoulder pads accentuate this further. And similar to ER Prime, the way in which they've used that all in one design - where the thigh moves with rather than under a separate hip skirt - makes the legs longer than they should be.

    Like Earthrise Prime, I think it'll look better in hand, though deffo something to get used to if you can't unsee.

    Not having the wheels on the outside of the shins also helps "unbalance" what we are more used to looking at too (if you have any familiarity with the OG toy) as the lack of their bulk creates an absence.

    It also makes the mass of the shoulder speakers look even more exaggerated.

    Whack it all in black and it'll all work out in the end. Now.

    So the sales blurb says Dragstrip forms a specific limb, so I think this is less of a combiner limb and more like a car that perhaps just slots into a frame. It might have a few tricks but I suspect it’s mostly just filler for a frame

    kinda fits the rumours that MotorMaster is going to be a voyager sized robot with a trailer that does the rest of the work for combiner mode. I'd be ok with that I'm not really a fan of seeing him and DeadEnd split in half.

    Pre-orders for Dragstrip and Kickback placed whilst taking a break from watching Black Widow to grab a drink.
    Shame that Trapper Wolf sold out but it wasn’t a “must have” so I’ll survive.
    I’m just wondering that with the Revisiting of Bulkhead and Arcee could lead to G1 prime Ratchet that isn’t some kind of exclusive.

    MAFEX Gambit has just come in stock at Curibo so I'll have that to pay for on Tuesday so PulseCon stuff will have to wait...the only absolute must have is Elvis MODOK but I'll keep an eye out for Trapper Wolf elsewhere and I already have the other Zartan so I don't know if it's really worth getting the other one just for the colour change gimmick and the extra heads.

    The other Black Series figures I want are all regular releases so no rush on those either.

    Next robot arrival will be Iron Factory Nacelle, talk about buying the same toy more than once, this'll be close to the 15th time I've got a version of that mould, plus Slipstream which is pretty much a downsized version of the same basic design.

    @Xaran Alamas,
    Good call on Oola being an option for a tier for the HasLab Rancor, given that one tier usually ends up being a bit bleh I reckon another one will be a stand or something else that's cheaper to do than a full figure.
