Are you kidding? I'd love to have Megs' duck, especially his Transmetalized one from later in the series.

Why bother? Just use the olive, it'll last about as long as said McGuffin did in that episode.

Yet again these guys seems to be pressing their luck with useless plastic accessories that no one should care about. Do they want people to buy this s**t or not?

Next.

OK I remember that in Beast Wars. I thought they meant in G1. So many episodes crammed in my head I get em mixed up.

On Dr. Wu: It's possible, however hardcore east coast hip hop heads often refer to The Wu-Tang Clan as "The Wu". Steely Dan is way before my time and Im 35. I guess the age of the company owner would determine whether he is making reference to Steely Dan or The Wu-Tang Clan. Too bad well probally never know.

Could easily be their surname(s), seeing as they're from Hong Kong. Highly doubt it would be referring to something from the eastern US, although the Steely Dan reference is likely.

IMO, don't think Metroplex needs any help..

If someone out there has longed for a replica eye, and this makes them happy, then God bless their soul. And we shall thank Dr. Wu for making their dream come true.

I think Dr. Wu seems to specializes in small cheap accessories in a tin you can buy on a whim. Not the $100 custom figures and armors/trailers. It's nice to see 3rd parties specializing.

Thats a pretty boring way that it's posed right there, I usually extend it with the extra white inner parts of the wings, and then bend each wing on its hinge to actually make it drape down and around his shoulders a bit. If done right, the end of the shoulder should line up with the highest point of the wings edge.

I hope someone makes the world leaders the Seekers eject in that episode where the Airealbots go back in time and witness the creation of Optimus Prime. Now that would be awesome, or hey how about B.O.T. or that bird crap to put onto Starscream.
