Now all I got to do is make them some little cone hats
You know it's sad, had to get Arcee and Sunstreaker online because I never saw beyond wave 1 deluxes at the stores. Wasn't able to get Trailbreaker or Allicon for a decent price online. I hope Kingdom has better distribution.
Our local Walmart and Target chain stores skipped wave 3 deluxes and voyagers and went to Kingdom wave 1 instead.
Meijer is a midwest chain but they did eventually carry wave 3.
Our locally owned toy and comics shops did carry wave 3 and most of the GS releases.
I have a feeling mine are going to do the same. Never saw Megatron or a Quint. Only Wave 2 I even saw were 2 Arcees and maybe 10 Airwaves.
No Kingdom yet here. Just the remains of Netflix and just the other day started seeing some of SS86.
And here's my Prime:
I know it's said over and over again but this mold really is incredible. I can't wait to get the Matrix Workshop axe I ordered to really complete him.
Nice pictures and customization! On the subject of Matrix Workshop I've heard that the pegs of their items don't fit 5 mm holes and may need modification. @ziltama would know more about the specific Matrix Workshop kit you have on order.
MW pegs don't fit, including that axe. The pegs to connect the pieces together were OK on our kit, but the actual hand peg was too big. Because of the hand cover, it's very difficult to sand down the peg properly to size. It's not worth breaking ER OP's thumb over. I was able to file ours down to proper size (doesn't even need that much material taken off but needed to avoid breakage / stuck issues) with a precision file. Use filing motions parallel to the peg.
The axe is also meant for Siege OP, not ER OP. It can work on ER OP but the hand / hand cover has to be rotated.
I'm thinking of buying a Siege Smokescreen just for his weapons, to give to Earthrise Smokescreen. Please tell me there is a cheaper way.
The new rusticon datsun in the netflix line will be cheaper and has grey siege datsun weapons.

Grapple - "Pleasure working with you Elita!"
Elita-1 - "and it only costed us a dollar!"
I'd been told it would work if I filed down the peg. If I sell the kit off when it arrives is there another option (that's actually obtainable, unlike the one from the Centurion pack) to give him an axe like that?
Unfortunately, not a good one. There is the ZXB axe, but ours finally broke in multiple pieces and can't salvage anymore. This kit is also hard to find now outside of eBay:

The connector bits are too small and fragile. I managed to fix that but then the neck snapped. The 3d print quality also was not good and a notable downgrade compared to their 1st Roller kit. I was going to smooth it out and repaint but oh well.
This is another axe but is opaque and also 3d printed:

To go back to MW axes (these are my custom resin copies, which is why I have multiples). You can rotate the hand cover part to better center it for ER OP, but again, it's really for Siege OP.
Just remembered another one. You can ask @Trunkkey if he's making another batch of axes.

Giving some love to the Season 3 cast in anticipation of the SS '86 figures.
Man. Unpopular opinion but nonnef roller just looks bad compared to official figures.
Eh, he gets the job done I suppose. I'm neither here nor there on it.
I'd replace him if I ever got the Centurian pack however.
That's a great idea: use a bazooka from one of tbe CJ minibot modes as a Meggy back barrel! Thanks, bud; I'm gunna love that one.
I don’t think it looks bad in itself, just disproportionately large. I thought it was just in comparison with that small trailer, but it looks pretty large compared to Prime, there!
I’m considering getting the Nonnef trailer upgrade as it certainly makes that little grey box look better. (Also, just the fact you can put down the ramp without opening the whole trailer first, like you do with the shield-door appeals.)
I'm fine with rotating it, I think it looks fine that way.
"Jazz... I think you could go for some weight-loss exercise; Your rear-end is so large that you can't even fully go into my trailer. "
"....I think it's just your trailer that is too small, Prime!!"
