    I made these with hot glue and colored them with Prismacolor markers. They are pretty easy and next time I sit down to make more I'll take pics of the process and post a tutorial of how I do it.

    In any case I don't think they'd hold up really well to shipping.

    Poor little Smashdown arrived from Amazon somewhat... squished. Mangled his arm up proper.

    Back he goes by return post :(

    It arrived in a padded envelope, blister packet looked crushed and marked. The other Titan master and micromasters that arrived with him were fine, but he was not so fortunate.

    (He was the one I was most looking forward to playing with too!)

    The delivery truck must of fell off a bridge or something of the sort on the way to delivery. Who knows with Amazon, it looks like it was sat on.

    What the hell? How do you botch up a delivery so badly it looks like the figure was twisted and torn?

    They do this with Blurays and DVDs as well. Multiple people often complain the Bluray case looks like it was full on squished or stomped on. My hot take is that perhaps a heavier product was set ontop of the thing they ordered and in the process crushing it. Amazon has quite a few issues with this.

    This feels so right

    Shockwave has his Seekers

    Is it me or are Soundwave and Starscream built better than Megatron and Prime? They both feel somehow... weightier in hand, if that makes sense.

    The 3D printer is of poor quality.

    I don't know why but I feel as though I've been waiting for an image like this for a long time. Love it.

    Bluestreak is soooooo good on this mold. I take it back: Barricade isn't the best use of it.

    I scoffed at the idea of all the Rainmakers until this image. Holy... this is amazing. Loads of personality!

    Got Redwing from Target today (F you Target for making me get your credit card to buy him, but I did get a 5% discount and free shipping using it)

    The Red color looks much better in person than in pictures and my copy didn't have the problem with the chest that Starscream had. It stays on when transforming!

    Photos don't show it well, but retro-styling battle damage onto some pre-Siege characters is oddly satisfying. photo 3.JPG photo 4.JPG

    I did not look when I opened the package and trashed it before noticing your question.



    Welcome to the boards!

    Ya it sucks you have to be a Red Card Member to get this guy... I am still debating if I want to or not...I do like the looks of Redwing

    Images and pictures are always the case. Some figs aren't "photogenic" but look real good on hand.
