    I launched my G1 Battlechargers into our pond as a kid. The precise panel alignment on these Earthrise releases often makes me wanna throw them into the sea.

    (I lucked out and got two pretty decent ones though.. that bumper on Runabout is an oversight on my part :lol  )

    I bought Earthrise Starscream and Siege Rumble and Ratbat (not included in this photo) at my local convention back on Saturday. So I decided to take this group picture.

    I know this is Earthrise Appreciation, and I appreciate the heck outta Sky Lynx here, but just wanna give a shout out the PotP Dinobots.
    They’re kind of a wash as combiners, but fun as small scale individual figures. :)

    Even if that's a reference to "Moonraker," I still struggle to follow the logic on this one. Nice pics, though.

    No, just a fond, silly memory about my childhood versions juxtaposed against the frustration of these new ones as an adult.

    Nice picture... but how can Wingfinger actually fly by flapping sticks (technically).

    Bones walking.. fine, but flapping to fly... outch my brain.

    Been a little while...

    My smol doggo decided to pay a visit while I was taking pictures, so she's included for scale. :)

    I really enjoyed the base-building aspect of Earthrise. It does require a fair bit of space, though. :rolleyes: :cool:

    Cybertron technology? Who knows. :D 
    They already have mass shifting and pocket dimensions to summon truck trailers, weapons and Omega supreme body parts when he transforms anywhere out of nowhere so yeah... and deceptions in G1 cartoon can fly so......
    Not a big surprise if wingfinger is able to fly.
    If they're in the kingdom show then we will know if they can fly or not

    I mean Skylynx and Astrotrain can fly, even though the shuttle orbiter was never meant to fly, just ‘fall with style’.
