So far, I only have Starscream and Bumblebee. They are both real nice figures and quite sturdy. I am tempted to pick up a couple more for customizing. TFMaster's Glyph repaint inspired me, though mine would get a slight facial resculpt to make it look more feminine.

Actually, I'm thinking that if and when I'm able to get hold of a couple of Bumblebees, I may redo my first ever repaint, Hardshell. With a new facesculpt and paintjob, he should look pretty cool.

I didn't even know about the Smokescreen repaint. That's brilliant! I had no interest in Crosswise before, but now he's suddenly gained worth... 8)

I have a BB hidden at my local TRU until I get my next paycheck. He's behind a bunch of "The Batman" toys, so I have a feeling noone will be looking there LOL. Blew my toy budget this past week buying Titanium Jetfire and Thundercracker. I better not buy grocerys this week :lol:

I'm a bit behind here... I've never seen any of these in the shops yet, and I've only just realised how many figs are being released for this line.

I've just found this checklist page of the existing and upcoming figs, for anyone like me who doesn't know what's in store.

I'm quite liking Cliffjumper; as good as BB looks, I think the mould is better suited for this lad. I think I'd have to mod the head a bit personally though.

Surprisingly, one of the standout figs for me is one of the Mini-Cons, Dirt Rocket from the Decepticon Dirt Digger team. The altmode looks awesome, and by the looks of it the robot mode has somewhat better articulation than most of the others.

I'm also baffled by the choice of Menasor mould, the repaint of LOC Prime. Am I the only one who thinks Megatron would've been far better suited?

Well, I finally got Classics Optimus Prime yesterday, and he is sweet looking. I was messing around with him a little this morning because of my plans to build a trailer/command armor suit for Classics Ultra Magnus when he comes out and have figured out a way to transform him to fit into the armor similar to how the original G1 toy did. Basically, with wind-vane removed, you simply transform him as normal into robot mode, except you don?t fold up the front wheels/bumper. Then, you simply re-transform the arms?and only the arms? back to their vehicle mode configuration. Fold down the knee armor and point his toes, and he is ready to be armored up.

This configuration will allow him to be suited up with a command armor suit, similar to the ones already built for the Masterpiece and Hybrid Prime/Magnus models, and retain full leg articulation.
