    Don't worry, everyone. Vangelus, Aaron, and TJ didn't "forget" to talk about Generations Selects Star Convoy. They were just waiting for the right moment.

    Yall be throwing some shade at my boy Rampage, but I gotta say I... actually was more impressed with him than scrapmetal? Scrapmetal is cool, but I think for the weird design that is Rampage the robot mode is actually really well built and very expressive and impressive. The torso articulation especially I think brings a lot to the table even if is meant for the combined mode.

    So... I guess I\'m just saying I hope you are plesantly surprised owning him for whever you grab the guy.

    Also vangelus on that clip, if nobody has made one I'd gladly model one provided I had the part and make you a duplicate out of highly durable resin

    I got a feeling I'll be into him once I find one here - by the time that happens I'll have gotten over that bit of extra boxy-ness on his pogo parts

    Oh no, our hero Vangelus is one of those dirty nasty scalpers...

    For real though, those lightning collection figures are looking pretty good. I don't need those headsculpts myself, but I am impressed by them.

    For the record, the reason the drinking age is what it is, is because there is evidence that prior to that age it can have adverse effects on neural development.

    In regards to micromaster pricing. I find it completely adequate. I like to think that each figure is $5. Compare the sculpting and paint to that of a Botbot at $3, it makes sense.

    There's a reason Bandai hasn't made anything as nice since Gridman. Bandai didn't do the Gridman toys. Takara di

    I should be coming to TFCon Toronto this year. I might have to bring Super Minipla King J-Der.

    *gets to car discussion* *coughs in car enthusiast* As someone who has driven manual since he was 13, it is extremely natural for me, I go a step beyond and throttle blip on downshifts but I am in a very small minority and totally understand people who opt for autos, and really, most racing is done on SSGs or sequential anyway. That green on TJ's Mini is British Racing Green. Annnnddddd Mini is German :p

    Something inside me is saying that Scrapmetal is a partial tool of Combiner Wars Scavenger but I think that part of me is sleep deprived...

    My dad made sure that my younger siblings and I all learned to drive manual. It definitely takes getting used to, but once you get it, it's not bad at all. Of course, nearly everyone who's driven a manual for an extended amount of time says that, so I guess I'm in that club.
