    Okay, that's given me the confidence to do the rest of mine. I might go even thinner on the wash myself and do a second coat. Dunno, will test on the bottom of his feet again to see if a second wash is a bad idea...

    Even though this is my fourth iteration of the WfC Datsun mold, I'm still digging Barricade. Those blacks and purples are so moody. Kinda hot!

    I feel ya, but I'd also hesitate to re-buy them. I'm already having mixed feelings about the new ER Seeker mold and buying those.
    They're awesome! But as Hot Rod once said, "This is getting expensive!"

    While I wouldn’t mind a update to those characters to better matchup with Earthrise’s aesthetics, I’d rather Hasbro not use up Earthrise slots for figures we just recently got updates to

    but all of those are already incredibly close to what earth modes would look like anyway, and definitely much closer to earth modes than siege prime and starscream

    So it is a bit hard not to view Lancer as the 'least' or Elita-1's crew. Now, that's not a super diss (or at least, it's not intended to be), it's just those floppy limbs and the...how best to put this...deco that takes some getting used to do kinda detract. But I still actually really like the mold. Even with the floppiness it's got some great posing power.

    90% done with my minor repaints of the Datsun/Prowl mould figures I have (soon, Smokescreen, soon) just some pics of my WIP.

    Does anyone else buy 2 or 3 copies of a fig just so you don't have to keep changing it?

    I usually do it when they're on sale, and the reasons are kinda arbitrary... Sideswipe is one and done because the red doesn't work for me in alt mode with the car's shape, but I've two Red Alerts for both modes. OP, Shockwave, and Megs are similarly covered, for instance.

    I'm actually really glad when I get a character like Springer who has ONE alt mode I like and that's it! Or that standard Mirage's alt mode will be the way to go since I prefer his stealth look as a bot.

    At least I can justify multiple Battlemasters bought for the effects pieces by having a bot, the bot with a gun, and partnering the whole thing with a larger class.
