    Bit of paint and repurposing the toyhax shoulder guns for Prowl I didn't want to use.

    Unfortunately the elbows have a soft ratchet which kept scraping the paint off, so those have to keep a bit of red.

    Funny you brought that up since the only 3P add on I've bought for anything in this line was the TFSafarri Gap filler for Ironhide...

    What sealed the deal for me was the quarter inch leg extenders since I had no intentions on transforming him much.

    I had the same plan for Ratchet but it looks like the leg extenders won't be a part of his Gap filler set.

    So it's just Ironhide who only gets the 3P addon treatment this year. I still might get stickers or paint Ratchet like others have though.

    Zetar! I NEEDED that!

    Side note: I'm aware that Ratchet's windshield / chest panel is supposed be positioned differently in robot mode, but I kind of like it better this way.

    I loved Construx as a kid. Unfortunately, mine are a long distance away, buried who knows where in my parent's attic, and if memory serves, in generally poor (what someone might call "well-loved") condition. So I bought some on eBay. I thought they would be good for doing displays. My hands aren't the greatest and making my own props is something of a challenge, so I decided I could use some Construx and scratch two nostalgia itches at once.

    Barricade has guts there, I'll give him that.

    Barricade looks good with the gold. Kind of a cross between a police car and a pimp-mobile. I dig it!

    I do want to give him the Marvel comics scheme, but I'm quite gun-shy about stripping red from white. I've had a few bad experiences with that.

    I just got Shockwave for $30! He was on sale at Target, plus I got a 25% off coupon.

    I'm honestly thinking of picking up a fourth one because of the sale/coupon.
    After all, THIS needs to exist:

    I'm fine with it. I wouldn't use leg extenders if they did come with Ratchet because it just feels right to me that Ironhide is a little bigger than Ratchet.

    I love that Siege and Classics Mirage are so different that they can just exist as separate characters!

    *Shrieks* I found the 35th Anniversary Seige! I can't get OP right now, I'll get him next time, but I got my 3rd Reflektor and my daughter's Soundblaster! They're in the Christmas toy section not the regular section! :rock 

    Didn't find Barricade and I didn't like Bluestreak ip. I just can't get past how stubby and unproportional the prowl mould is.

    That filler set for ratchet on tfsafari wasn’t made by the same company who did ironhide’s. IH’s came from ratchet studios where as ratchets is some forgettable name that I can’t remember with out looking.

    Edit: it’s GX studio.

    Either way, what that means is that ratchet could still get the same upgrade kit as ironhides.

    I know right. I kind of giggled as I wrote it out. I’m sure it is coming though. What bothers me though is that I really like the foot sole fillers on that gx ratchet set. I almost wish I could just get those for both ratchet and ironhide (and crosshairs when he gets released).

    So yeah, Megas XLR was a bloody weird show. It was basically the creators sending endless love letters to the anime and robot shows they watched in the 80s, and one episode the masses of giant robots they had to fight were green Shockwaves. I don't know if they had to pay Hasbro royalties for it, but I suspect not.

    I kinda/sorta impulse-bought the fan vote 3-pack, mostly for IDW Impactor. Who’s really cool but Mirage has been quite fun too, surprisingly. I think I might feed the weaponizer to the Brunt’s though. This is my first experience with the Cog mold and it’s kinda meh so far. We shall see.
