The viper is coming. Five seventy-five.
Just wanted to drop a not, though it's kind of out of place.
Strife Z had posted an image of Omega with some other bots in the background, I took an interest in his Planet X dinobots.
My 1st of what will eventually be the set arrived today!
Thanks to eceryone for sharring their treasures, you may just end up inspiring others even in an unintended direction
Amazing. I'm not very knowledgeable of the comic books so Impactor isn't a recognizable character for me. But I like the mold + color scheme and was thinking he'd make a perfect officer in Shockwave's security division. This just confirms it. I'll probably settle for Autobot Impactor and just reprolabel him as a Con though.
Btw in case anybody is considering Siege Skywarp and the Phantomstrike Squadron (like I was), Amazon.ca has him on a daily deal. $17.50 off. I was leaning toward grabbing a cheap Starscream and completely repainting him. But at that price, I may as well grab Skywarp and the extra blast effects, see the charcoal in person, and if I still want to repaint it's not quite as daunting. The fan vote 3 pack is also down from 99.99 to 72.47.
This is BADASS!!! Love that sword for Impactor! This post alone makes me want the “invisible” Mirage more than anything else I’ve seen of the figure. Very cool, sir!
If anyone is planning to “appreciate” their siege figures alongside Piranacon, the last two seacons are up for pre order on Hasbro Pulse.
Ordered. So now what am I supposed to do with 4 of the 6 Seacons?
Ridiculous. But in the best way. Unlike that abomination of a film on the telly behind him.
My daughter, who at nearly twelve is at a bit of a crossroads with play due to how fast she's suddenly growing up, took one look at this and made a beeline for the Micromasters under the tv. And here we are
Battle cat roll out…
Whoa battle cat!!!
I got the three pack in and I enjoy it. I mainly grabbed it because:
1. I like both versions of Impactor, but I just like the way the IDW head looks more than the individual release. Reprolabels took care of the symbol.
2. I love deep cut obscure stuff, and that of course means I love the powerdashers, and so of course I was going to go for all three.
I didn't really want the clear blue Mirage, but I wasn't liking how Mirage was looking in renders, so I went with this initially to see if the individual Mirage might be worth picking up, and I do indeed think he is.
Since the upcoming Ratbat will be part of Soundwave's crew and that FRumble will remain a cassette somewhere, I felt that Soundblaster was a little lonely. So over the weekend I ordered PE-01 to hold him down until BBTS finally discounts that MP cassette set that has Wingthing and Enemy.
While Stripes and Nightstalker would go great with an upcoming Earth Rise Blaster (fingers crossed of course)
I got in the matrix workshop weapon sets I ordered from TF Safari. They needed a little bit of filing on the handles but it only took a few moments for each weapon.
It’s time to bust some Decepti-chops. (My son removed the legs from the sniper rifle)
I also did some surgery on Ironhide. The leg panels on mine would fall off if you looked at them, so I used a mini hand drill and some picture hanging nails to make pins. I pushed the nails through and snipped off the extra.
“until all have the power!”
“By the power of the touch!”
All the Matrix Workshop kits I own have oversized pegs. It's rather annoying and can potentially cause damage (to your figure especially if the port has thin walls or snap the peg off). My Ironhide kit also had a severely warped rifle. The ports on those arm cannons / jet pack thingies are also not quite 5mm either, so don't try to jam a normal peg through them (or you'll break the relatively fragile 3d plastic). If you want to use them, then you'll need to use a 5mm drill bit by hand.
That being said, I have 2 more kits hanging out somewhere in US customs. I'll see if they all still have the same problem.
I'm gonna swap some parts! Believe it!
Nice to finally have an official Galactic Man, hopefully I’ll stumble over an original Shackwave someday. An MP version would be nice too.
so much logic!
the clear one is so cool I didn't realize the fake car hood in bot mode is fully visible at the back end of the car until I got the regular version today
I start on west corner. Top floor first.
