    HAHAHA! YES!
    NO, G2 Straxus is most certainly not a digibash!
    YES, that is a compliment!

    And yeah, some uneven paint that needs fixing is what needs to be finished up on him. I just got it together because I felt a picture was needed.

    Mercy is not dispensed here! Only leopard print thongs!

    Thanks for the shout out!

    Now now, it's only one chain but at least if a Canadian customer wishes to taste test shopping in Australia before going on a trip, now they can. :tongue: 

    Hey, hey! - World's largest Island, also the world's smallest continent and archipelago too... Yeah, geography! :cool: 


    @Cheetimus Prime: Any chance of a link to the pic dude? - would very much like to see it. :D

    Vangelus, when you get giant.. I want you holding herc in one hand and giant in the other and shaking them both like a set of twins you didn't want.. :p 

    And yes it was my youtube channel.. Thanks for the shout out..

    Notably my taking apart the feet in the video was from not realizing that you could fold them entirely down and realign them without taking it apart. I simply had not messed with exgraver enough at that point nor read that it was solved by swiveling both feet down.. Oh well..

    whats this botcon taking away 3rd party toys that i keep hearing about.
    If i would create a transformer show vangelus is on the writing staff. i came up with tf names for you guys too Chris is Vangelus he'd wield a knife shooting bazooka and a pick axe he transformers into a tank, Aaron is AirRun he's a jet he wields photon rifle and plasma pistols, TJ would be Omegus he'd be a train who wields a turbine powered cargo train car sized nuclear fusion cannon. You're are also pretenders who go by your human names and fight the decepticon pretenders lead by nemisis prime in order to stop them from ravaging this planet as they had done to many others over there years of war.

    @ Hursticon: Hmm, so you guys are both the largest & smallest? Hmm... :) 



    Also, I love G2 shit, those Combaticons being no exception. Well, not enough to actually buy that shit, but you know.

    About dlx DOTM prime feeling small:

    I literally meant the 'feel', if I recall the conversation correctly. Not the actual dimensions, just the more airy-fairy hands-in-the-air neon feel of being small or oomphy.

    Pulling the episode down for repairs! Jiidee let me know I missed one of the many Skype-outs during WWGTW. I'd have left it if it was brief but it's like 4ish minutes long.

    So, I guess Bruticus will be saying 'A taste of my Sonic Pain Wave should convince you.'

    What, no RID fans?

    Ah, I see. I know one thing, he looks damn good with Voyager Megatron, Sentinel, Shockwave and Deluxe Starscream.

    Was listening to the podcast on my route and I don't know if it's because I'm super tired or what, but I had a great idea on a different take on Transformers that hasn't been done before.

    What if you did kind of a WW2 type theme? Not the earth WW2, but I mean the general feel of it in a Cybertronian setting. Don't make Optimus the leader, make him a fresh faced officer who gets field promoted to Prime when his CO dies. He begins to gather soldiers into this ragtag group that participates in a trench warfare-esque style of attrition fighting with groups of Decepticons.

    Megatron wouldn't be the supreme leader yet, he'd be a high command officer overseeing operations in the area where Optimus and his team is fighting. I see him as viewing the entire field as some sort of chess game. Starscream would be a blitzkrieg commander, leading strafing runs over the field while not engaging in the politics of war while not fighting. Shockwave would head some sort of (note, please don't think I'm being insensitive or dismissive, just giving a visual idea) concentration camp where he'd experiment on all the autobot prisoners and neutrals the Decepticons have rounded up.


    I envision this as very much a gritty WW2 style movie. It'd be easy to plug certain characters into the sort of stereotypical roles one attributes to war movies of that era. For instance Grimlock could be the tired, worn seargent whose seen too much and is now just as brutal and merciless as the enemies he fights.
