    I feel that, I like to use reflectors, hotlinks, and deseeus army drones to fill out my decepticon army. For autobots I like to use different unique repaints for the generic soldiers like tigertrack and deep cover.

    Clobber: “So are we friends or a pairing?”
    Blitzwing: “Beats me, you’re an homage to Lugnut….so I guess…”

    NOW….for the main event….

    Tales from Siege: A captured, insignificant little Bumblebee: Part 1

    Barricade: “Well well….we got us a little spy watching over us…and in our territory..”

    Bumblebee: “You mean Autobot right?”

    Barricade: “MotorMaster, Deluge rough him up. He doesn’t know his manners”

    Soundwave: “Cyclonus, I believe it’s wise you show our enforcer his place. I want this prisoner alive at once.”

    Cyclonus: “But of course Soundwave”

    Cyclonus: “Cease you blasted fools.”

    Cyclonus: “Soundwave has given me orders to keep this prisoner alive for interrogation.”
    7F9FD8D7-F563-442C-8233-925B63F621DB.jpeg

    Cyclonus: “Barricade, tell your men at once to release the prisoner immediately.”

    Barricade: “Fat chance, I’m just having fun “Commander” Cyclonus”
    E575EF70-D8BA-4E0F-AC55-8162A6B90B85.jpeg

    Cyclonus: “I’m not a fan of your tone enforcer. You will do as I command…”

    Cyclonus: “Now….will you refrain Enforcer Barricade, or do I need to enforce your skills in honor”

    Speaking of Reflectors as the Decepticon Medics I found something interesting on TFWiki about that.

    "At least two of the medics that appear in "The Last Stand" somewhat resemble the Generation 1 toy versions of Spectro and Spyglass—sharing many of their design cues. Later, among all of the Sparkplug-deactivated Decepticons, a generic that resembles Viewfinder can also be seen."

    So my new Rainmaker set arrived today.... except upon opening I discover it was the ER Thundercracker and Skywarp 2-pack.

    I. Am. Not. Pleased.

    Update: Now the Seller is accusing me of making a fraudulent report and are going to have FedEx testify against my claim. So I decided to contact eBay and ask them to resolve this because its clear we won't be able too.

    I'm going to call eBay's customer service tomorrow and see what else can be done. I might even file a report to PayPal.

    I am really sorry to hear this. Anecdotes on the board suggest this is not going to go your way. Ebay should be used as a last resort, as their buyer protection is a dead last failure.

    Remember that getting angry won't help... And these people are probably going to infuriate you during this process. Keep calm and best of luck to you. May I ask how much he charged you? Rainmakers, for example, are still available for Preorder on BBTS. Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege Voyager Seekers Three-Pack

    If in the worst case scenario, you have to cut losses with Ebay, at least you can make sure you still get your Rainmakers (eventually). Someone around here will be willing to buy your ER Seekers.
