Dave - Thanks for the comment :)

116 minty packaged G1s and the one thing they have in common letting them down...The Sistema bins imprisoning them.

The end of this year I end my life full time studying as well as full time working. Hence the quick resort to storage bins, not even stored at my own residence!
In 2018 there will be the time needed to finish it off (60 something to go)
So that means at some point late next year i should hopefully know dimensionally the approximate space required, and will draft up bespoke cabinet units tailored to suit and display these perfectly

Brief ponders given to the scope of the works are for the cabinet(s) to be:
*) Very sturdy in an earthquake, acting somewhat as a protectant
*) For each shelf to have an opening door that is u.v. protective and also has dust proof seals
*) For the cabinet(s) to be of a design that allows display along a single wall only
*) An allowance in design for portability, especially for possible public display
*) Lockable secure doors, to keep little hands away

Not sure if this will work with Photobucket jumping the shark. Let's see:

This being Godbomber month, got mine as well.

Image

I think I skipped a step somewhere...

I have to say, on his own, Godbomber's not that bad. But when used together with Ginrai, being the key reason to get this set, it results in a big unmitigated mess. Although probably more on Ginrai's part than GB's, but I think I'm going to stick to the deluxes and voyagers from now on. The lazy corner-cutting engineering on the larger units are just plain unacceptable.

The hands are wrong. You use Ginrai's hands just extended down with Godbombers arms wrapped around them.
Edit. Is that combiner wars ginrai in there? I think I missed the joke :)

On a personal note, I got Titans Return Sixshot yesterday.I haven't opened him yet. eBay gave me a $20 off AUD an order on a order over $40 and it was the only thing I could think of. I prefer the Takara head but I can't make up my mind.

Nearly forgot, one more item from the month:

Image

Titan's Return Broadside. Throw in some Tamashii display wave effects and a Kabaya Piranacon for an epic sea battle on a scrunched sheet. Robot mode and carrier modes are nice with lots of little details. Carrier mode makes me think it should be attached to an even bigger space-faring ship as an arm. The Plane mode... uh. Plane. Plane? Yes, I'm quite sure it's meant to be a plane.

I was going to put up a much more conventional picture until I cottoned onto the fact that Godbomber's leg connectors are CW connectors. Silliness followed. ;) Mind you, my thoughts do apply to the proper God Ginrai combination as well.

Hey Mr Ash, be VERY careful with his hip ratchets. Check twitter and Tformers to see how badly these are produced. People are messing their tryps up majorly.

There is a fix posted though. I thought nothing of it until I saw the pictures of the damage. When I get mine, one day, I'm going to be doing this before putting the legs on.
