    I think you’ll need to add a smidge of red , I can see some hint of red tones in the blue used for him . Also model paints app seems to show it as bright light purple or blue purple.

    Wingfinger might be the coolest of the Fossilizer figures IMO.

    Unfortunately, he’s got the least impressive name outta the whole bunch. Wingfinger just does not roll off the tongue as well as Vertebreak or Ractonite. A ninja-esque figure like this deserves a smoother name. And given that he reminds me of a very specific character from an adjacent Hasbro franchise, I’m calling him Bone Shadow (EDIT: Ooh, or maybe Wingshade. Just thought of this one when I got towards the end of my review. They both sound cool).

    This marrowy samurai is certainly the most limber of the Fossilizers. This is probably the skinniest damn robot I’ve ever seen, but it works well for him. A couple of the connection points on my copy are a bit loose, but he can hold a pose very nicely. I’ll break out the floor polish at some point to tighten him up.

    I really like the Pteranodon skeleton form. The paint apps and off-white colors they used to show the beak and his torso and limbs look like they were calcifying is very subtle. The barren eye sockets look appropriately creepy. Just thought I’d mention that.

    I really like the versatility of his weapons. They are very much in keeping with the ninja style theme of this figure. Well, except maybe the giant beak shield/club/gauntlet/blaster/whatever. Still, pretty damn slick looking.

    Bone Shadow is my favorite of the Deluxe Fossilizers. I like that he’s more symmetrical in both his forms than the other two. It’s very suiting for the design and theme of this figure, especially in his bot mode. These guys have definitely been a fun concept. Kinda would like them to do more of them.

    Yep. As soon as i can go buy a pack of Chesterfield Red, i'll have a new avatar.

    I gave one to Barney too, but i made it bigger and even if i liked it at first It became a little weird to look at over time. So, this time i made it smaller. Still .42 of course.

    I remember that some member mentioned having some sort of issue in reference to how they'd bend the wings and causing either stress mark or breakage, but from my 3 copies, I have no issue.

    I think it's a case that there's a tab in the wing that you have to make sure that you fold the wing correctly to "unlock" it, as I remember that when I got my first one, that tab was in the way, but I didn't force it, and bent the folds until it was "reversed" so that it wasn't in the way anymore. My other two, it was the first thing I did, and never had any issues.

    But not to say that there might not be a quality issue in a run, but I don't recall anyone mentioning much of any issue since the release and those few that did have trouble.

    I actually like the new skin colour. BW Rhinox was always too light in beast mode, as if it was caked in mud and dust (which oddly enough is somewhat more accurate than I just had my bath KBE Rhinox).

    The factory couldn't match that area on Siege Ultra Magnus either (it's darker and more saturated than the plastic on my copy). I don't mind the white but, blue looks better for symmetry .

    I'm currently on the final countdown to my sister giving birth. But we still don't know if it will be a boy or girl. This picture will finalize it. With it be Waspinator or Blackarachnia sitting on Uncle Megatron's lap?

    Thanks, I remembered it but not easy to find some posts after a while. So glad that you could link to it in the hopes that we've helped a fellow member.

    I don't think the baby would like to be associated to a stripper spider nor to a total idiot whose only purpose is to serve as a chew toy for everyone else, but i see your problem.

    It's hard to find a fembot Beast Wars figure and even if you do you have to find a decent counterpart amongst your figures...

    ...what about Airazor and Silverbolt (the one with GPS that turns into a pretty much useless combiner part, not the cool one that turn into a flying wolf)?

    Finally finished my oversized KO Quickstrike custom. I don't think that Hasbro will do him in the correct size like, they'd probably mess him up like they did with Rattrap and Scorponok if they do get around to him so I'm happy with how this looks. I wish the yellow was a bit metallic but Hasbro would probably use a regular yellow too.
