Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

Yeah, the fossilizors (sp?) are unexpected and welcome in their novelty. I hope they're actually neat, too. Primal and Beast Megatron seem analogous to their masterpiece counterparts in the same way that Earthrise Prime is to the third version of MP Convoy. In other words, smaller, cheaper options t...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

The scarecrow has its arms outstretched with a span of about 6 feet, so I'll have a sign on him reminding people to stay that far apart. The sign will also say, "Shriek for candy". While the kids are reading the sign, I'll throw candy at them from the window. The window is basically behind the fron...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

Nice. How big is the Voltron?

I still have my Kreo mini-figures in a tote, most of which have been assembled.

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Found Blitzwing and Skipjack yesterday. Blitzwing's neat enough. Skipjack's great, and helps the color balance of Devastator quite a bit. Not wanting to leave out Rampage, I worked out how to attach him to the back for a bigger hump. Since movie Devastator's supposed to just be made out of whoever's...

Re: WANTED: MP10 left wing mirror or chest piece

Yeah, best solution for symmetry is to just take off the other mirror. If you can find replacements from a model kit, more's the better.

Funny enough, if you had needed replacement parts from MP1 instead of MP10, I could help.

Re: Custom Siege Pinpointer (or: babby's first dye job) [and other random customs]

Had a go at using the peroxide+sunshine in a glass jar method to de-discolor some yellowed plastic from my titan Metroplex. Works pretty well, but it's not fast: https://imgur.com/a/BiNRHpo I kept track of how long it was left out, so here's the data. The hydrogen peroxide I used was the consumer gr...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Neat. I'm still kind of OCD about not having the same character in the same display, but equally it's nice to have comparison shots. And there's some unusual pieces there -- is that a Japanese gum toy Piranacon? Who's the green Scoop redeco? Here's the shelves individually: https://imgur.com/a/dOhM...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Earthrise Dirge and Ramjet showed up today, packaged rather... dubiously. Though, I suppose, technicallyyyyyy the set's actual packaging counts as a shipping box, right? Right? Seriously though, Amazon simply slapped a postage label on the toy's package and, uhhh, shipped it. No shipping box, no fo...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Ugh. This took a couple of hours. I color coded the shelves, lol. I know I can get a stronger and more distinct color vibe for each shelf going, but everything in there now was simply rearranged from that or another shelf. I... like it. https://i.imgur.com/A43Js2p.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/6wrPHjJ.j...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I forgot to add before that I haven't had any good cartoon metaphors for people in the pandemic, but I did watch the Avengers (2012) again a few weeks. The comparison I drew was that even though Loki is going around killing people, tearing up helicarriers and whatnot, the Avengers still don't get th...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

But, I will vote Not Guilty if I'm ever serving jury duty on a case involving a defendant who attacked someone for not wearing a mask. I'd call it self-defense at this point. Covid's killed around 150,000 Americans in about half a year... Given current trends, and the large gap between accidents an...

Re: Hello, it's been almost 10 years.

I just realized I didn't actually reply to this to say hi.

"Hi."

Also, ten years? Really? Doesn't seem that long.

Re: THIRD PARTY TOYS NEWS

I really doubt it's about the third party market as a whole, but rather specifically because Wei Jiang are bootlegging actual Hasbro/Takara designs. My impression has been that third party figures that are original molds are in the clear for the same reason Hasbro can alter existing car designs and ...

Devastator! Got twitchy and ordered an Overload from ebay. No real markup on the price, but had to pay a penny or two for international shipping. Besides, I've been wanting to finish the figure just because I've been annoyed with the people that got it early not understanding how to combine it, whic...

My latest acquisition would be Siege Jetfire and I grown quite fond of him. In the photo, he's underneath the giant, 3rd party "Omega Suprme". What is the little chonky Omega next to him? If memory serves, it's the Wei Jiang Hulkie KO and WJ do good KOs in general, would recommend. Think it's been ...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Within the past couple of weeks, I've come to realize that my safest course of action is to probably just stay inside until there's a vaccine, which hopefully comes sometime next year. I say that not just in reference to viral infection, but also to limiting my contact with people. I went to walmart...
