If I can get his hips (outward universal joint) tightened up he's probably gonna be my favorite Megatron!!

That pose is the cool!! No worries about the hips, I'll figure something out I'm sure, not the first figure I've had with loose hips!! :lol:

yes! I've heard so many great things about Rodimus, but I've yet to enjoy the mold myself.

And nice Megatron! the flame accessories rock!

D-Max, Rodimus Minor is pretty dang sweet. SO SWEET that I was perfectly fine double dipping and getting Black Rodimus of the same mold! I fixed a leg pinned part issue on BR but his neck is still pretty loose, not sure I can do anything for it really (his collar and his neck ball peg).

Leader Megatron continues to wow me, kind of like Armor Knight Optimus!! And who wouldn't love to see Megatron do the Baysplosion pose?! Speaking of AKOP, I reaaaaaally need to get him a better Temenos Sword. That orange one he came with, blargh.

That saying is true, but almost the opposite here. His ship mode will be fine, his bot mode will sink!! :lol: :lol:

That alt mode is tops and look at the interior of the car.

I held Alt Skids this weekend and was shocked that he had a light coating of dust. What the hell, when did my figures start collecting dust?

Wow. Lack of update in the houuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse!!

I picked up this big cat..12 days ago!
Image

10 days ago I brought these two in for a romp down memory lane. Jazz is definitely out of scale in alt mode, bot mode was more fun than I remember though!
Image

I re-arranged/cleaned my top shelves 9 days ago.
Image

Six days ago I dug this guy out of storage and went on a quest for a different head. Such a small ball peg, but I found one which fit in alt mode..
Image

And looked b-e-a-gorgeous-utiful in bot mode!
Image

I'll be updating the wing insignias soon. ;)^ His head swap mate wasn't pleased though..
Image

Today, MP Road Rage and MP Ironhide are here with all accessories!! Let's see if I have time for fun.

Cobotron wrote:MOAR pictures of shelves! NAOW!
Well, the other two shelves are largely unchanged. Let me see if I can think of the breakdown..

On the Decepticon most awesomely complete shelf, all of the G1 Reflector team are now standing. Viewfinder is still on the frontline, with Spectro and Spyglass hanging out under Devastator.

The Autobot shelf has had some changes. Reximus Prime is now in bot mode, CW Huffer, TR Brawn, PotP Windcharger, Alternators Jazz have joined the shelf. Everything is dusted, TRU MP Rodimus Prime isn't there as MP Hot Rod currently is. I have Generations GDO Cliffjumper in the area..just not sure if I want him on the shelf or not. I was also thinking about finding a Bayverse Gears as I missed out on Generations Gears. I'd be OK with Generations Gears as my stand in I think. Still need a Trailbreaker worthy of the shelf (I'm looking at you Aegis!!) and I think that MMC OM Hellion has my attention for Cliffjumper over the GDO version. Alternators Hound would be perfectly fine by me as my Hound, still no idea what to do about the Lambros or Mirage.

The shelves are crowded as is which is one of the reasons I parted with MP Ultra Magnus and the MP Rainmakers! Then there's the "play bin" which is basically all of newer than Classics (with only one Classics in there) figures that I like. Struggles!

FIXED!! In this post too!!

Aegis is the X-Transbots one. I like Apollyon enough that I'd buy another one of their products. I also have read that each one has enough issues that there isn't a "winner" so I'd be OK with that one ;)^

I can vouch for their(XTB) Hoss (aka Gobot Road Ranger) figure. But I have read mixed reviews on them overall.

I think I'm leaning towards MMC's Ocular Max TB and XTransbots's Hoist.

Very interesting picks for your top shelf! Sixshot still looks good even as a G1 brick, Menasor is loud, and PRIMAL!!! I am almost the whole way through season 1 of BW and I love him, they did fantastic with him as a character and I cannot wait to get a toy of him!

I'll have to re-check but I think one of the 3 released is smaller than the others. I know BadCube did one, MMC/OM, and X-Transbots. I also think that goes the same for Hoist, and that Hoist may have adjustable legs to make him taller or shorter on the ones that he's not already shorter by default.

Or something. :lol:

Well, I need Optimal Optimus and G1 Sixshot on display at all times, along with Menasor as he's really good at standing up there. I did have Liokaiser up there too, but it was crowded. As of last night MP Road Rage and MP Hot Rodimus joined that top shelf. I'm also kicking around the idea of moving G1 Ultra Magnus back on to that "G1" shelf. What I would really like to do is get a G1 Starscream (preferably the Transformers Collection reissue) and have G1 Optimus, G1 Magnus, G1 Rodimus opposite to G1 Megatron, G1 Starscream, G1 Galvatron. You know. For TF:TM reference ;)^

Here's the Autobot shelf that someone demanded pictures of.
Image

Not in the picture, and makes me sad, are Alt Mode Hound and Sideswipe as they would be my current representations of the characters.

Finally labeled this guy up.

All the 3P companies are working on slightly different scales. I guess that is to promote brand loyalty :-?

Well the stickers seal the deal. He looks great. ;)^ What were you calling him? Wing Saber Optimus Prime?

So many songs came to mind for this pic.

Loudmouth - Fly
Slaughter - Fly to the angles
The Offspring - Pretty fly for a white guy
Sugar Ray - Fly
Amy Winehouse - You sent me flying
Lenny Kravitz - Fly Away
Ozzy Osbourne - Flying high again
Foo Fighters - Learn to fly
Pink Floyd - Learning to fly

Because it's a chill Friday, this song wins.



Tom Petty, still one of if not the best concert I've ever been to - RIP :BOWDOWN:

@carytheone: Tom Petty = win.

On to other things on my desk this week!

Tuesday I brought in two vastly different figures.
Image
Yes, his missing his left forearm and hand. No, I don't know where it went and have been frantically searching for it!! :-( Love that Bumblebee though. He's a lot of fun. The alt mode definitely fits together better than the AoE "new" Concept Camaro. I do miss the AoE classic Camaro though. Definitely a solid toy that looked amazing and was actually screen accurate for the most part!!

And here's the other Tuesday-bot, not-Hot Rod (or IS he Hot Rod?!) Excellion from the Cybertron line.
Image
I forgot how much fun this guy is. I like him as Hot Rod more than Classics Hot Rod! He's got the look AND little details, like the arm exhaust/blaster thingies!!
Image

Yesterday and today I brought this guy.
Image
Sort of solid bot, super solid alt mode. I located his missiles, and made changes from Wednesday to today with his legs though, can you tell?!
Wednesday:
Image

Thursday:
Image

I foresee MPM3 in my future..

I never got that deluxe Bee, I got the Nitro guy, and he is awesome!!

That Excellion mold! nice! Love the colors!

How did you get HA Bee's wheels on the outside of his legs? And is the change the moving of the thigh armor?

It's currently my favorite Bayverse Bumblebee, even with the missing arm!! He looks the part. I mean, so does HA, but we'll get there.
D-Maximus_Prime wrote:That Excellion mold! nice! Love the colors!
If you can find him for regular price (no more than $15) I say he's worth it. Solid dang chunk of a bot, decent range of motion, I love both modes!!
D-Maximus_Prime wrote:How did you get HA Bee's wheels on the outside of his legs? And is the change the moving of the thigh armor?
How? MAGIC! And by magic I mean disassembling his pelvic area and swapping the legs. And if that wasn't enough I disassembled his knees and swapped legs. Yesterday was before I moved the knees. Now I'm not sure he'll transform :lol: :lol:
