    minis2.jpg minis1.jpg Hey all, sorry if this is the wrong place for this or there's another thread. I did a search and didn't see this listed. Has anyone picked these up? I've picked up quite of few of the first wave 1 from Toy Dojo!

    Nope, you're in the perfect place, they look GREAT! I was doing the same thing with the Dollar store minis on a smaller scale.

    Wait, Toydojo has them? I can't find them on their site. Do they have preorders for wave 2?

    Looking good. And here I thought I was nuts for buying three of each (five Starscreams, though).

    I picked them up on site at the store because Toy Dojo is local to me. No word on pre-orders yet, can't even get info from Wiz Kids. Though, once they do, you might be able to contact Toy Dojo for pre-orders.

    What colors did you go with for all of yours? I have an extra bumblebee, but I don't know what to do with him.

    The only thing I could think of was this character(as I wouldn't disrespect Cliffjumper by painting bumblebee red :D )

    Do you have any painted, if so please share!

    I would never hijack another person's thread with pictures of my own customs but since you asked

    I haven't painted Starscream yet. I'm working on coronation gear for him. I handsculpted the cape and I've designed pauldrons for 3d printing - test prints were successful but the quality on my fdm just isn't up to snuff. I'm planning on buying a resin printer soon - got a bonus and the stimulus coming soon so I'm sure I'll be able to squeeze it in somewhere - and then I'll be able to get decent prints of the pauldrons and crown (still need to design the crown but that won't take long).

    These pics are from a while back - haven't taken any new ones since I sanded down the cape:

    I plan on painting my second one of each figure in cell shaded colors and I'm trying to do some research on what paints are best for that. Haven't decided if the coronation Screamer is going to be realistic metallic or cell. As for the third ones, I'm not sure. I figured I'd keep them around in case inspiration ever struck for some other project - they're so cheap that I figured I should snatch up some spares in case I ever want them, figuring I'd regret it later if I didnt'. I also got a couple of extra Starscreams figuring I could do them as Thundercracker and Skywarp, in case Wizkids doesn't give us new figures in new poses for them.

    [Edit] Also I got some white outline dry rubs and I think one of them is small enough for Optimus so I'm gonna' replace that awful grey waterslide. Unfortunately, the waterslide did not want to come off and I ended up damaging his paint so I'm gonna' have to paint over it which means re-mixing the color I used before, so that's gonna' be fun -_-

    [Edit again] Btw, there's a thread for the unpainted figures here if you're interested.

    Oh you did a great job! I especially love your seekers and Megatron. Who is the copper and black one?

    Thanks guys! I based him on this new age: NA H13D Hodur Limited Edition | Newage | TFSource

    I'm not sure if it's supposed to be Blackout or someone new, but I really liked the color combo. Hoping to do Hotlink(once I can buy paint again, since I don't have the right color combo) and Sunstorm if I can find a yellow that looks good.
