    Say hello to the two new Decepticon warriors, Snapface & Apedragon! C14214DF-0BE2-47ED-9194-94ECEC08F29D.jpeg

    (as an aside, I should add how much I love Snapdragon’s head on Apeface’s body. I knew they’d go well with their similar colours, but even so it looks better than I thought! I often wonder why this aspect of the toys wasn’t played up more in G1)

    The GX 08 set for WJ came in today and it’s pretty nice. Small review in his feedback thread.

    Edit: gawdamn hair

    This will prob be a shot in the wind , but are there any printable Teletran 1 diorama sets out there?
    Would be neat to fill one entire shelf area inside a bookshelf to really capture the atmosphere.
    The Netflix versions are nice but could be better.

    Yup..

    Teletraan-I / Ark / Nemesis Display Panels!


    Once printed on a photo printer, they look like this.

    DSC05065.JPG DSC05066.JPG DSC05074.JPG

    EDIT: note that these were printed via "poster" mode so across multiple pages that I taped together. (A few extras that I shaped into 3-d parts)

    Note that I never did the Teletran one as it's fairly complex and have been doing my own computers and such, but using the background files as a start.

    I've also drew my own for my modular dioramas for my graphic novel/comic. (a couple sample pages):

    I think Snappy is my favorite Earthrise figure so far.

    He does look great and I'm pretty sure to get it when I see it.. but again.. so many faults I find... the dragon arms so empty, the limited articulation.

    Funny that the fire from the mouth, is technically coming out of the headmaster's butt.

    Actually it’s emanating from the front of the headmaster’s torso.

    And while I do like mine, I still find myself enjoying the G1 figure more.

    Looking at the picture, it's like the feet are positioned in a way that they are backwards then.. the "teeth" are in the front?

    hmmm.. interesting. I'll have to re-view a review.

    But fire from the crotch.. that's kinda worst?

    Here’ my Autobot City layout! I’ve always dreamed of having a set up like this. So glad I can finally do it!
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I like that Fortress Maximus can actually connect to Omega Supreme. I used Fort’s Leg blaster appendage thing to help stabilize the other side.

    I like to keep the look and lines consistent so I used the Generations legends with Metroplex, Titan masters and legends( they have Titan masters inside them) with Fort Max, and the Micromasters with Omega and Sky Lynx. It looks like 3 cities combined into one!
