    Photoshop. I have a decade-old tutorial here, but I use a slightly different technique these days and it varies by figure. If you have it, DM me and I can share my settings. I suppose it wouldn't hurt to publish a new tutorial.

    Every time someone puts Airazor in that pose, my faith in the fandom dies a little.

    Got a second Rodimus from the Amazon sale, and it is flawless. My first copy was good, but the trailer needed work to keep it closed. This one snaps closed quite easily, so that's pretty nice.
    The bot mode is also a little bit tighter, but not different enough to be considered "better", just tighter overall.

    I would pick up Roddy #3 if this is a norm for Amazon/Latest batch.

    The character always kinda annoyed me on the original show. Never had any interest to own the toy back in the 90s because of that reason. I don’t know what it is about this Kingdom line that’s making all these beast formers so irresistible, but I gotta say…..

    …..I am a fan of Waspinator. My tastes have obviously changed and/or refined over the years.
    99D044DC-9E5D-431A-B2A0-FF55A0549D02.jpeg
    I’ve become intrigued by the more eccentric figures with certain quirks about their design, the most obvious for Waspinator being his bug legs. That’s the main thing that I was concerned about in regards to my enjoyment of this figure. They’re not nearly as dynamic as Blackarachnia’s legs, not even one hinge on them to bring them closer to the body. It took me a bit of getting the feel of the figure before I found my sweet spot.
    5D80427F-D982-4DAC-97DF-4431CF097FFD.jpeg
    The bug legs on his robot arms (weird way to start a sentence), I keep turned downward. It doesn’t poke me in the hand now and allows to better articulate the arms because now they’re easier to maneuver and they’re not jamming up his wing articulation.
    The other set of bug legs were the tricky ones. It helps that all the bug legs are detented. One thoop forward for the bottom legs helps keep them out of the way while giving him a nice dynamic silhouette IMO. I like to keep the antennae on his chest turned upwards in bot mode. I just think it looks cool.
    He’s got an amazing headsculpt too. The eyes, mandibles, antennae, and jawline are all nicely detailed. They did not cheap out on the headsculpt.

    B7CBB291-9ACB-47C1-A291-FF33B2ACD95F.jpeg
    Wasp mode is a winner IMO. Everything compacts quite nicely and isn’t as fiddly as Blackarachnia’s transformation. I love the colors on Waspinator. The purple used for the bug eyes and wings is very lush. Lends nicely to the semi-transparency of the wings. I never had the T30 figure, but have seen pictures. I gotta say, I definitely prefer the more vibrant look of the Kingdom Waspinator.

    Giving credit where credit is due, Waspinator is a badass figure. More so than what his character portrayed in the show. On some level that seems unfair, but I guess that’s Waspinator’s lot in life. Oh well, at least he’s got one good thing going for him.
