    One thing they both have in common was that OOB, their trailers.... would need some work/ customizations to look better.

    Mine neither. Great figure my Smokescreen, on both modes. I'd like to get a Bluestreak too, but I think I missed that one.

    I couldn't get Sunstreaker to tab together properly in car mode, but that might have been my fault with alignment. A nice figure to have, nonetheless.

    Nah, I have the Matrix Workshop ion blaster and unfortunately it's just as you said. I made my own. Had them made, anyway. Standard 5mm peg. They'll be here later today.

    Everything looks intact, although I was under the impression Prowl got his shoulder armaments, sadly no.
    Hope the QC is good!

    They look so good! Mine got delayed until after Christmas. Oh well.

    As far as Prowl's shoulder cannons, I believe Nonnef has said that he has plans for the Datsun brothers as well as kits for the van brothers. Looking forward to seeing what he's cooked up.

    Roritchi is quite stunning in person. The gold is very nicely done.

    Trailbreaker was never on my "most favorite " list. Still isn't. The figure is nice, as was Hoist, but the brown/black plastic kind of looks off-character.

    Bugbite is pretty awesome. Loose waist joint aside, the white is vibrant and the purple guns and red eyes really set it apart.
    Gotta get rid of that logo, though. Did it for Exhaust, so Bugbite will also get a proper badge.

    Cool.


    Sunstreaker got back ordered yet again. Now it could come after Thrust and Runabout, provided they ship on time.

    Damn!

    I didn't think I'd like ER Ironhide more than WFC (into which I poured money for fillers and love in the form of extra paint).
    16062271502296955300278174024112.jpg
    Here we are though, instant preference... This just makes my brain very happy. WFC Ironhide is not gonna get much 'out of the box time' anymore I'm afraid (and no sass about selling him, he's still my precious boy, just less precious)
    16062273610248952997255001421472.jpg
    Weirdly enough I think it was the connon/booster slide gimmick on the 'shield' that did it. Go figure... Glad I went for the Paradon Medic box as well.

    FYI the same filler sets will work with the ER Ironhide, just got some Siege Ironhide/Crosshairs sets and mixed them to get the reds in the right spots for ER Ironhide (Crosshairs set comes with red leg fillers while Ironhides has grey)
