    Technically you have Laserbeak and Frenzy too here, depending on how you paint them. :)  Arcee has weirdly short legs though

    I mean, with the mini of soundwave and two of his cassette minion types, there is nothing stopping you now...

    All of the first wave came with both Autobot and Decepticon logos. Assuming the second wave does the same, you don't need any from reprolabels.

    Yeah... Arcee seems to have a habit of getting odd proportions.

    What does "deep cut" mean in this context? I'm used to that term being used for classic rock tracks that didn't get much airplay.

    It refers to how the details are deeply cut into the figures so they don't come out soft looking and get washed out in the molding process or when you paint them.

    That's disarmingly weird, I dated a very small woman years ago who was built almost exactly like that Arcee. Cute, but definitely not the right proportions for that specific character.

    And no, she did not turn into a car. Would've been handy though, the moment she let go of my hand I'd be 1/2 a block ahead of her.

    These would make pretty good pieces for a board game of some sort.

    This has done nothing but strengthen my desire for a The Transformers RPG. I don't care how many books I need just to create a campaign that includes the Headmasters, Targetmasters, Powermasters, combiners, etc. Nor would I feel any concern if I had to buy reissues of these metal miniatures for nights where I can actually do a G1 campaign. And I definitely would not mind having Unicron suddenly appear, impale the Autobot/Decepticon who was played by an obnoxious munchkin (read: power-player), before having the character's head be the first to go. So here is to the hope that leads to that happening. :cool:

    Check out Bot War. It was created as a Transformers Wargame but they had to make different minis to stay on Hasbro's good side.

    And now I'm creating a new D&D character. Combine it with the Beast Wars Soundwave so he can wildshape into an alligator and bat.

    Funny thing is I do play a warforged druid. Started out as circle of the moon so I could be a transformer but ended up switching to circle of the shepherd so that I could do lots of summons. The Soundwave angle never occurred to me but I do summon a bunch of giant eagle all the time and I've got minis for them that I haven't painted yet (well,I painted one up as Zoar from Motu but I haven't painted the others yet). I should do them in Laserbeak and Buzzsaw colors :D

    I'm not much of a war gamer, but I will consider checking this out. Thanks for the heads up. :cool:

    You can find them on Amazon. They're a little marked up but not too bad.
