As if it is needed, confirmation of Mightron's badassery, here he refuses Optimus Prime's request to stand aside as this is
a pic of an optimus t-shirt ($12 K-mart) and a comic collection!

Aaaaand YM Dirge is in.

That's it now. Done with this mould. Done with Seekers. I like them all but I've definitely had enough.

I know what you mean. I hate the feet. And also Takara don't even give you a stand anymore.

The Takara versions definitely don't justify their price tag anymore. Weird that seem to love giving other MPs a tonne of accessories, but leave the seekers with almost the bare minimum. If they ever redo it they have plenty of room for improvement.

Not transformers but I have been bitten by the S.H. Figurarts bug.

Sush posability is fantastic. I love how expressive they are. I find myself picking them up and mucking around with them overtime I go into the room.
If only it wasn't so hard to track them down for a reasonable price.

One for dad, one for the boy? That's really nice :)

Anyway, Badcube Trailbreaker has arrived and absolutely smashed my expectations. BC definitely took things to a new level with this figure (though that backpack transformation had me swearing)

You've probably noticed now but your Trailbreaker's thighs have panels that you can spin around on the outer side. Fixes the thighs shape :) I missed it too as evidenced in my pic on the previous page.

Legends Sharkticon Gnaws arrived today, which means time for gratuitous army builder photos!

Also Triggerhappy, Twinferno, and Kickback. Triggerhappy is a delight.

SND kit for CW Prime. The end result was well worth all the swearing and frustration

A much better start to 2017 than I had for 2016. Still waiting on a few items though but they will be likely delivered in Feb. (Smokescreen, Blades and negotiating others)

Pushing hard this year to finish. Next purchase will be Boxed G1 number 90 into the collection...

Galvatron broke my losing streak with the 4 leaders, Slag my lack of any Dinobots, And Hot Spot is the die cast metal chested one.

All box inserts present (as usual), all unapplied stickers etc... and continuing my theme of zero flap creases across all boxes, all of them have none :D which is very hard in the case of Galvatron :)

Image

And getting asked to contribute towards content for a major site in their G1 item category. Will see- time is of the essence these days :(

Got Bee from LMD! Really neat little figure. Glad my son has a classic Bee to keep with his TF's.

Ohhhhh. That's the auction that I noticed and then forgot to add to my watchlist. Nice score!

Oh my goodness they really nailed the look of this. Sorta stopped following development on this after I got Toyworld Orion, but now... Where did you get yours from?
