    I still need Twin Twist, but in my opinion Top Spin is the best deluxe for Titans Return. I can imagine his brother would be the same.

    Your work is really improving in my opinion. The poses seem more natural and the eye effects are excellent! Keep up the good work bud!

    Those customs are impressive! I love what you did with wings on Astrotrain's chest, and his full-body paint job is excellent (The de-Headmastering is also impressive). I am curious as how you went about modifying Bliztwing's cannon. Is that by any chance in the Radicons forums?

    Thanks!
    Blitzwing's cannon mod was a kind of spur of the moment thing I did a long while back after a friend mentioned he did the mod, but a lot differently.
    I used the Generations version's cannon, put a pin through it and built a housing inside the front of the turret to allow for the gun to raise and lower.

    thank you so much!

    I still have a really long journey to retake pics of most of my collection in better poses. I've been working on a joint website the last few weeks and we're trying to launch in about 2 weeks, so I haven't had the time to take pics of my new stuff let alone take pics of old stuff. I have like 15 transformers on the list that I've gotten in the last 2 months or so that I haven't taken a single pic of yet. Once we launch in a few weeks, i'll have a lot more time to take pics of my collection to make the art look better.

    OK, I know I must be outta touch, but what is "Za Warudo"? I know it means "The World," but what is it a reference from?

    JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Long story short it freezes time or something.
    Don't know specifics, I hated the series and dropped it pretty early.

    JoJo's Bizzare Adventure, Dio's Stand The world is activated when he says ZA WARUDO in the manga and when he does, time stands still,
    after I saw Dio use his head to steal Jonathan Jostar's body I thought of Sentinel Prime from the IDW comics where he stole Alpha Trion's and the fact both can stop time inspired these images.

    It gets better around Stardust Crusades, the first two parts kind of sucked

    Man, I just love these figures. It feels like handling a G1 box art painting finally come to life, the poses you can get them in!

    hes a lion as a reference to the old botcon, in 2001 alpha trion was teased as a potential botcon repaint of both lioconvoy (in the wreckers #1 and bm snarl in the wreckers toy catalog) and to the botcon alpha trizer which was a reference to that. tr alpha trion also has visual references to the cybertron vector prime figure as a nod to the alpha trion botcon figure made from vector prime

    So, the SDCC Collector's Preview Breakfast revealed a Target Exclusive reissue of TR Soundwave, plus a One-Step Bumblebee that comes packaged with a trio of cassettes, being a reissue of Buzzsaw, what I'm assuming is Howlback, and the much-coveted Frenzy/Blue Rumble depending on what you ascribe to.
