    I quite like the look of Astrotrain.
    Even though the trains railwheel assembly sticking out looks a bit nastrotrain.
    Unfortunately I think a lot of people will give him a passtrotrain.
    Edit: On account of him having jettisoned some masstrotrain.
    I'm hoping some custom paint will give him a bit more classtrotrain.
    How long dyou think I can keep this up before I seem like an asstrotrain?

    Prowl would have definitely benefited from having grey as a highlight color instead of just being black and white.

    Planning on dyeing fists and waist red. I removed the red paint first but the plastic was stained pink in those areas. Light passing though the white plastic made it more apparent. Silver over those areas did the trick. 20191112_171955.jpg

    He does. His hands, crotch and chestplate. You can't see it in photos.

    Wha-? Prowl's hands, hips (crotch?) and chestplate are all white, at least on the one I've got sitting next to me.

    That was an expensive set for mainly just one figure that I wanted, but there was no way I was settling for the regular headsculpt when this one existed. This figure is and looks awesome though, worth it in my books.
    Fillers ordered and will be applying an autobot badge soon.
    The other mirage is just a hologram of the real figure in my collection, and the other dude is just more autobot fodder.

    You might want to sell the other dude then. There are a lot of people who seem to just want him.

    My fingers are crossed for a price dip because Aragon is really the only part of the set I want.

    With Impactor, I like the face on the Decepticon version better, but I prefer the helmet on the Autobot one. I think I'll be happy enough with the latter whenever it finally arrives.

    If you decide you don't want Aragon, let me know. I've been looking to buy just that figure, as I don't want the other two in the 3-pack enough to warrant purchasing it.

    I can't be bothered with shipping stuff but if anyone in Vancouver BC wants Aragon, PM me an offer. Same with Holo Mirage as well actually.
    Sorry to all y'all not in Van.

    Finally found a solution to never ending Deskbot Clutter. Had Sixshot roll them up into a Katamari Ball to save space.

    Do do do do do do do dodo do do do.

    Further to what I was saying - after my feelings of buyers remorse on the other exclusives, I bit the bullet and paid over the odds to have Ratchet imported to the UK, and in contrast to the rest I adore him and think he was worth every penny. Maybe its because he was always one of my favorites along with Ironhide when I was little, but the figure is absolutely stunning.
