    Yeah that feels like the most sensible approach to color breakup here, the conundrum is "cartoon accuracy" vs "the sensible approach.

    Seems Prime and Elita have many questions.

    Opened my smokescreen today being the first night of Hanukkah.* I like him. I had already gotten the upgrade kit for him from tfsafari. The wheel caps really complete the look and can’t wait to take it further with the toyhax set that will eventually come out. The “80” does bother me. Does it beat siege? Well..... yes and no. Yes because it is an earth mode that looks really good in both modes. No because I’m just not a fan of the transformation. The shoulder tabs are not that secure probably being my biggest issue. Otherwise it’s not that different from siege. Also if you guys care, he’s got the tabbed roof/open knees config.

    *Im not Jewish but my wife is which by extension my kids also are. Happy Hanukkah!

    Got something exciting earlier in the week. Saw a charge for the amount of a 2 pack from Amazon on my card, thought it was the Ratchet set, but when I got a shipping notice, to my surprise it was Ironhide and Prowl! (ordered Aug 7th, no prime). been eagerly anticipating this after the delay

    The box was smaller than I thought. Shipped in the brown SIOC box from hasbro so at least they didn't just slap a label on it

    IMG_8303.jpg

    Everything was fine and accounted for out of the box but as soon as i turned Prowl's head it popped off. Perfect for me as I had always planned to swap it with the siege and this ER one has a little red splotch on it

    IMG_8294.jpg

    Swap looks great. I already had Smokescreen and Bluestreak but getting this Prowl in hand really made me realize how much I dislike the siege mold for the datsuns since I had a direct comparison. I will say though, one thing siege Prowl has going for him is the bits of yellow breaking up the black on the arms and torso. might have to try to add some on the ER version

    IMG_8298.jpg

    Completed Datsun Trio

    IMG_8302.jpg

    And absolutely love Ironhide as a character and his classic altmode. Partsforming bothered me less than I thought. great figure and great 2 pack

    I'm having some success using a Magic Eraser (pictured with Prowl's lightbar below). It's incredibly laborious but it seems to clear 90-odd percent of the paint. Will probably use a light grade of sandpaper to excise any hard to get spots.

    I'm gonna admit, 50%+ of the reason I want Kingdom Scorponok is so I can pose him with G1 here. Possibly getting stepped on.
    Since they debueted first, can we say that Bevis and Butthead ripped off the Battlechargers?

    Maybe the creators read the legendary debut of the duo that Stan Lee himself praised?

    The Runabout I ordered from Target is STILL listed as pending when it was supposed to he delivered on Tuesday, yet tracking lists it as having been sent to the place it initially shipped from, yet there's no mention of "returned" anywhere.

    Should I do something? What COULD I do?
