    Not the best photo but I made a little modification to Smashdown to make him more compatible with Impactor.

    Glued the tail/handle in to keep it straight and connected for action poses and cut it down, filed it a bit and now Impactor has a new friend/hand option.

    Okay, now I wish they'd do Smashdown in colors that match Impactor.

    Yep. Emgo316 is probably my favorite reviewer, though I also like peaugh and Balmatrix.



    Soooo freaking jealous of Rong! Err...Wung. :D

    Spent WAY too much for him on EE but it was worth it to finally have him.

    I realized something the other day. The most underrated Siege figure isn't Chromia, as I had previously thought. No, it's Ultra Magnus' white inner bot. I've been displaying him with the full, cartoon-looking mode, and yeah he's definitely better that way. The best Magnus figure I've seen in fact.

    But I've been messing around with the inner robot and it's a very cool figure in it's own right. I appreciate that they didn't make it just an albino clone of Siege OP, which would have been the easier and cheaper thing to do. It's not even a remold - although there is some similarity, it's a different figure. Even the head has some differences - beyond the obvious one of the colors - when examined closely. The alt mode also looks more "Cybertonian" than Prime's, which I appreciate.

    Brothers in Arms:

    Should have done some more comparison shots. Maybe next time.

    Anyway, the coloring gives a somewhat stark look, but I like it on this figure.

    He looks good wielding the Star Saber too.

    I don't like the shield mode thing at all. Don't like the way it looks, don't like the general idea. Turning them into weapons like that is an improvement.

    Thanks. It's a sheet of poster-board I found at Michael's, though I think I've seen it in at least one other place.

    The purple Ptraxodon repaint matches I suppose. It doesn’t really matter to me, I’m from the Armada generation and most minicons stood out like sore thumbs so this doesn’t bother me.

    The purple pteraxodon is being wielded by Lancer. All my fembots have a gun (one of the guns from Dreadwing or Blackwind or whatever) and a pet that becomes a weapon: Elita has Smashdown, Moonracer and Lancer have pteras (i repainted ptera to match Moonracer), and Greenlight and firestar have the lions. Oh, and Volcanicus has the two pteradactyl minobots (the axe and the gun from TR) as his weapons, both repainted in silver.

    One of my biggest issues is that I wish the minibots that don't have partners had clear coloring to go with a bot from this line.

    So, a lot of you have noticed my simple custom Sunstreaker there, behind Sideswipe. I had to make one, cuz it never seems right to NOT have the two of 'em together.

    But, anyone else think they're gonna repaint Wheeljack in Earthrise like this, at some point?

    Ah, now that is one example of adding paint that I really like. To be honest, I don't think I ever noticed those tools before. I wouldn't mind doing that on my own Ratchet - except I'm sure I'd botch it. :)
