    Was really hoping Magnus would be one of the black Friday specials on Amazon but some of you guys did warn me that it was unlikely.

    Lots of other Seagie figures did go on sale but they're bots I got.

    Springer is a good price if anyone one still needs him.

    Does the 10% work on preorders? And I thought I was a premium member since I ordered the HasLab Unicron but it won’t let me use the “FANFIRST20” code.

    Backing Unicron doesn't mean you're a premium member. That's still a separate fee. 10% does work on preorders.

    No. You had to make a pre-order or purchase during the first weeks of Pulse's grand opening to receive the free premium upgrade. Once that window closed, you had to pay $50.00 to get the service level. Unicron only nets you free shipping because he's well past their "free" threshold.

    Got myself a Siege Spinister from a nearby TRU with a 33% year-end TRU discount:

    What an vibrant-looking toy; I'm not even joking when I say that its eye-catching 90's style color scheme is the main reason I bought this fella.

    No problem.

    I really DO appreciate your images and what you're doing, and would love to see your potential grow.

    I don't know how long you've been playing with photoshopping images, but it is a skill that can take time to develop so I do encourage you to have fun with it.

    Consider that some of us has already got Spinister, I don't think it would be that long until more people can get one on their own.

    Transformed my Spinister for the first time into the helicopter mode and I'm not sure what to think of it. The transformation is indeed fun to do and there are some neat ideas, but I'm not really sure if the use of a fake cockpit canopy for one of the leg was really necessary and the fists kinda just exposed outside in the alt mode in plain view. The main rotor does spins well, however which is nice.

    I learned the extreme basics of Photoshop in 2000 but I really didn't use it at that point aside for just removing the background from stuff. When I got back into collecting Transformers around COmbiner Wars, I started to do what I am doing now, but I really didn't know that much so I learned as I went. I posted my earlier stuff on facebook and it is like night and day from what I've put out now. For the most part, I am getting better, bit it really is a learning curve. 2 years ago, I started taking classes at the local college (I have a bachelors but I just wanted to add to my skillset). I learned Dreamdweaver and I used it to make my website. well let me rephrase, relearned Dreamweaver. Again, in 2000 I had one class on Dreamweaver and then the rest I kinda learned on my own over the next 2 years. My plan was to take a class in image rendering for 3D printers and a few photoshop classes, but they stopped offering them. my friend suggested that I take an online class, but I just can't learn technology stuff in an online class. I just did a pretty big overhaul on my site that launched a few days ago. Now I am going to step back from the next stuff on my website aside for small updates for a few months so I can put my film school education to work and write 2 scripts and then try to get an agent to sell them. If I sell a script, it would be tens of thousands of dollars for 1 month of work, so I think it's a good investment. I was really sick for over a decade and my creativity disappeared from that. But now I am better and it's come back so I am going to try to write again. In school I wrote a few scripts that were turned into student films.

    I gotta agree with the other posters and say Apeface is worth it. It’s a very ‘devisive’ figure IMO though and it’s because of the funky alt modes and some design choices.

    Jet mode is blocky and Ape mode works but is not super appealing. You also gotta be comfortable with the jet’s nosecone sticking out when not in jet mode. The waxy white plastic looks fine though, people freaked out too much over that.

    I’m really glad he got made even though he’s so untraditional. He’s a lovable weirdo with his ‘Oreo’ painted legs and crunky alt modes.

    Decisions: should I buy Sideswipe for $13.99 (Hasbro 30% off) or Apeface (Amazon 17% off) for $24.99? Apeface is on hold until 12/8. I only have budget for one or the other today.

    Or... Should I preorder Earthrise figures at 30% off? If so, which ones? (I want all new guys except Soundbarrier.)

    Well I'd go for sideswipe. Probably just because i missed the boat on that one and can't find him around here now.

    Plenty of Hounds to choose from :/

    Yeah, Hound was the first Deluxe I got. He's shelf warming.

    I also need Refraktor, but looks like I missed the boat...I ordered Brunt instead of Refraktor in July, and I regret it, now Brunt is $13.59 and Refraktor is $22.99.
    Does anyone else have input?
