That's a neat/interesting/eclectic mix of figure molds to make up the Lost Light crew. I would have never thought of using that Rodimus, but it makes complete sense. CW Megatron seems like an odd choice other than size and he did come with Autobot symbol stickers (not pictured ;) ).

Cool beans, makes me want to try and make a LL display again :-?

Rung is a must get, but he'll be permanently in "ornament" mode over Swerve's shoulder :lol:

While I don't like Rung as a character at all I can definitely appreciate the uniqueness of his mold and the fact it came out in Siege, of all things. Still totally planning to sand down his face and turn him into protoforms/stasis pods. :twisted:

Thats just mean, what did the first Transformer ever (in IDW ver 1 at least) do to you :-P

Still, an awesome plan for a custom, it'd be interesting for hasbro to make protoform toys at one point for army building. Just call them blanks and be done with it.

Different strokes for different folks :) I had no problems with him and I liked him being Primus, especially since other then the ability to regenerate (a bet limited) and creating matrixes, he wasn't specially powerful which worked well with what Shockwave was laying down in the other book about the Primes as he created them in a weird bootstrap paradox. Yeah though I can understand some not liking him.

I love Rung like crazy come on he’s one of the best creations from one of the most thoughtful Transformers writers ever the only bummer is they didn’t go full Deluxe Weaponizer with him. But hey that’s just my opinion :lol:

Damn, Rung looks really good! they did him pretty well.

That Rodimus is on my list to eventually get. That is the perfect MTMTE Rodimus. Best comic book I've ever read

‘Best’ can be debated till the end of time as an old collector I realize that, but for me personally I don’t think I’ve ever been so emotionally invested in a comic and the characters. It just connected with me like nothing else. i really miss it. I miss them.

Best is entirely subjective to individuals, but that's my opinion. It's the only comic i consistently reread and thoroughly enjoy during every reread :lol:

From what I remember Primus wasn't even a "god" in IDW just one of the earliest Transformers, hell the actual guy wasn't a planet former just a normal sized dude who was part of a group of 4 other dudes.

He wasn't even strong or anything, the one thing he could do was poop crystals out of himself.

Walmart.ca is full of 3rd party sellers...at least one of which is trying to gouge collectors.

Really liking Rung. Just wish HasTak would sell a bag of the parts in all the different colors they've got because Rung's would look great in purple for Siege Megatron's fusion blast :lol:

Those who ordered Ratchet as soon as it became available on the Walgreen's website should be receiving theirs as I was one of them and mine showed up today. In a separate shipment I received Singe and Pteraxadon. I wish Hasbro's battle masters had knees like the Targetmasters that came with Takara's legends. I'm sure something had to give so they could include the blast effects but look at these two, patiently waiting for the bus. Image

If it was up to me running this trilogy I'd have Battlemasters (and effects) blind bags and every mold available in 3-4 colors and each mold would have at least 2-3 permutation of the barrel. If it was up to me I'd have these guys so produced the molds would fall apart! :lol:

So what Takara did with the minicons then?

You had me until the whole blind bagging. I definitely feel there should've been more barrel options, especially of the single variety.

This is a hypothetical scenario where I'm a corporate suit. I'd be legally obligated to thrown in at least one scummy curveball to make the fandom hate me!

Well, you found the sure fire way :lol: I have the worst luck with blind bags so I'd practically never get Rung, but I'd get 9 Firedrives so at least there's that :lol:

Well, I'm sure those multicolored Firedrive could make interesting partners to various Siege figures depending on the color scheme. Speaking of color scheme on Battlemasters: I've swapped limbs around and ended up with spare parts taking the form of a Caliburst with blue limbs and barrel. It looks really cool.
