    It's limited, but workable.

    These are so brilliant. Got mine out of the mailbox today. 3 sets of black for Prowl, Smokescreen & Barricade, one gray for Bluestreak which I ended up painting silver with a paint pen. Also shown are Nonnef's weapons sets.

    Feels criminal that each set were only $̶0̶.̶0̶1̶ $0.99 (special limited holiday pricing) but at least I've been spending a lot on Nonnef's stuff this year

    Yeah, I can't wait for these to go up again. I want 3 sets of B weapons and 3 or 4 sets of hubcaps.

    Yeah I kinda get that feeling. It’s fun but I wish that at least the bicep had more range, that’s the biggest oversight imo.

    Those little Dollar Tree blindpack Tf’s fit inside Q’s cage pretty well.

    Do you mean how far they project out? They’re pretty low-profile. Here’s another angle:

    Hey, does anyone know how to get Smokescreen’s roof to sit flush in vehicle mode? Is there something I need to sand down?

    It seems as though Runamuck doesn't mind, since he's clearly laughing down there. But then again....what won't these two laugh at?

    At least Shockwave knows how to deal with a persistent clown.

    Okay that's better. I honestly don't remember. I won't lie in saying I just saw his tweet and hit buy, lol. Definition of an impulse buy if there was any. Still a deal though. I hear they're going for $2.50 once he has them back up.

    Yep, the $1 price was a holiday special type deal. Also, they fit perfectly in the rear wheels of the Hoist/Trailbreaker mold as well, so they have uses for multiple molds

    Minor customs and fills to Ratchet done. Now here's the thing... Whilst I acknowledge that Ratchet in fiction should have a red pelvis, hands and head I have never much liked how it looked on a white Ratchet toy, even when very competently done by many of our august customisers.

    However, you may remark upon the red hands now adorning my below figure, yes, these I have painted, stopping short of full Marvel Deco head etc... Listen, I think I'm coming around on the idea, baby steps friends, baby steps...

    Hey dragon, don't eat my dinner!

    Love that base mode.

    I think this guy is my favorite Earthrise figure. He's more "complete" than Optimus or Scorponok in that he doesn't feel like he's missing pieces. The two blasters/ thrusters are a really nice bonus.
