August Hauls

Another month, another chance to splash out on some sweet stuff.

Couldn't resist picking up the Prime tribute 2 pack from Amazon

Had completely forgotten how fiddly wfc Prime's transformation was. Panels everywhere

Another TLF present - Barricade. Surprisingly not as bad as the others.

Men - I need to find away of telling my family that I don't want TLF5 tf toys. But if I tell them that, they might stop getting me TF's hmmmm.....

Well, TLK stuff does has a slightly higher retail price than generations. Maybe you could suggest that you wouldn't mind if they saved a few dollars and got you the "cheaper" stuff.

Got my replacement Grump (MP Gears). Horrible transformation but amazing looking toy.

It's a frustrating relationship.

Picked up CW Liokaiser from Mightape the other day.

The limbots all look great.

The combined mode torso may be off from the source material, but the colour layout works a lot better in person than in photos.

Trypticon

Full tilt

Image

I didnt like the fact he was just straight purple so after sticker up tryp, i decided to cut up the sheet itself and make some stickers for full tilt, borders of it for the silver on his arms, and the rest of the stickers like the purple on his waist and the legs and the silver and yellow bits came from shapes that where already on the sheet and all i had to do was add some cuts to them to make them work for him.

Trypticon is a amazing toy, so much fun, i managed to get my door on the front of him to stay by adding silver stickers to the side on the inside to stop the door from falling open while full tilt is on him.

This BBTS shipment came in on Monday:

TR Sky Shadow
TR Octone
TR Blitzwing
TR Broadside
TR Twintwist
TR Misfire

Anyone with Sky Shadow, Octone, or Blitzwing - get the toyhax reprolabel sets. They do wonders for the figures (and you replace the garbage stock stickers with something a bit more sturdy).
