    Been wondering this for a while. Why do you always post 'reserved' what do you mean when you're saying that?

    It's so he can edit that post to add more info re: the toy.

    That being said, this thread is a mirrored image of the other Toy World t06 thread. We should just have one on going Toyword throttle bots thread instead of multiple ones. Gets cluttered

    I wondered that too.

    First I thought he wants to be the first to comment on his own post.
    Then I thought maybe he is saying he has reserved one himself for purchase.
    Then I thought, I must be the only one who doesn't know what that is.

    As far as the figure goes, I like it.

    this is the blue one, right. :) 

    gotta say I'm very happy to see this project almost finished. it looks to have been a brilliant effort and i can check this group off my list of characters in need. maybe they could find time do do the deception battle chargers next. or those guys who need two vehicles to combine and form one bot. forgot their names at the moment...

    its kinda like what i always do with my BST and collection threads. get a couple spots at the beginning before people start commenting.

    Damn it... I really didn't want to pick a third set to display in combined mode but that ain't terrible.

    Now... where to find a cheap grind rod?

    I dig the proportions and the head sculpt a lot. Not sure I like it enough to get the set as they don't fit my collection but well done!

    It's to be able to offload older info from the first post. We can only have x number of attachments/links per post. Also, as per TFW staff direction, we are now supposed to make a thread for each figure. This thread is currently a placeholder for TW-T04. Yes, I understand that the current pics are the ones that we've seen in the other threads. Once we have updated pictures of TW-T04, it will replace those pictures on the first post.

    If you think this thread is redundant, please kindly inform the mods.

    Thank you. ;)

    I could be wrong, but I think daim will be better at updating his thread when there are new updates...

    Let the naysayers be cast down into a pit of their own dark despair with much wailing and Lamentations and I say Ye verily Yay! I shall buy a second set just for that.

    Lazy elbows be damned I'm happy.

    You do good service with your threads. Hope you can manage them all.
    I'm all for 1 thread per team. Makes it easier to keep track.

    Here here!
    Tempted to get a second set also.
    I would definitely buy a set of season 1 Autobot cars repaints of these.

    Freeway = Jazz or Prowl
    Chase = Sideswipe
    Grind Rod = Brawn
    Searchlight = Gears?
    WideLoad = Trailbreaker
    Goldbug = Cliffjumper
