Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I just looked up Mixmaster on tfwiki to see if they had the art you're talking about It's in the Devastator collage. Not sure why, but it always stuck in my memory. And yeah, I figure Payload would be the go-to redeco for Long Haul. Not sure about Overload, both because of lack of existing tangenti...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I stopped at 3 Walmarts and a Target this weekend, and none of them even had space marked of for SS Leaders, So, I bought Scav at a comic shop for $62 instead of the MSRP of $50. I was more worried about the all sales are final, no refunds or exchanges policy than the extra cash, but he seems to be...

Re: Official manga translations!

These are the ones that were concurrent with the Japanese exclusive stuff (Headmasters onward), yeah? I seem to remember something about Dezaras's wife and such silliness being in/from these, but I'm not sure.

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

Wonderfest Japan is happening this weekend, so they've put out new stuff in the Transformer booth. Studio Devastator (w/Scapper and Overload!), MP Arcee, and MP BW Tigatron. Tigatron's an upscaling of Cheetor, it seems. He looks great, but apparently costs north of $200, so they can keep the thing. ...

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

Scorponok looks pretty cool, but Hasbro's chinsiness at the Titan price point is always disappointing. The originals always look like much more fun as playsets. The new ones just don't come with many accessories, and they feel lacking. Sadly a vintage Scorpy with all his bits is even more expensive...

Re: Custom Siege Pinpointer (or: babby's first dye job)

Yeah, I was using some acetone to soften the pieces first. The plastic took the dye, but poofed up, for lack of a better term for physical distortion. I haven't read about the process in years. I might should try again... having a small hotplate to use outside counts towards that. And yeah, the type...

Re: Custom Siege Pinpointer (or: babby's first dye job)

Nicely done!

The one time I tried dying plastic, it technically worked but deformed the piece badly. Good to see someone else have some luck with it.

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Got a link? Sounds interesting. I think I saw it somewhere on TFW a month or two ago, so I don't think I'd be able to find it again. Sorry. :( Is this it? It doesn't have the toy colors versions mixed in, but these are good fun. Also, I saw a couple more Spinisters yesterday. Would you like me to p...

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

Agreed. Even though he's one of my favourite Marvel characters, a Scorponok that can't fistfight Shockwave doesn't hold much appeal. I completely get why they want to make him a Titan, but a TR Leader with the helmet gimmick would have been the best way to make the character as I visualize him. Doe...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

And I should say that I've seen people do really cool things with multiple Reflectors in a combined spaceship mode. I've seen some especially creative stuff done with people who were mixing and matching the TV and toy-colours figures. Got a link? Sounds interesting. Studio Series Scrapmetal Ended u...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Just thought I'd pop in to say that I found a Spinister a week or two ago as well. He's lovely, really. Also, I found Studio Mixmaster last week, so I'm up to 5/8's of Devastator by number, if not by mass. I also grabbed the 2007 Megatron too, and he easily has enough paint for him and the ROTF Mega...

Masterpiece Raiden now confirmed.

No release date/ETA yet. This will be the first combiner in the masterpiece line, I think.

Unique Toys have showed an early prototype of AoE Galvatron

That's not a transformer. That's some kind of sorcery or voodoo. :eek:

Apparently we're getting a masterpiece Raiden: https://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/possible-masterpiece-raiden-coming/44268/ To save some googling, Raiden is the train combiner from Headmasters, which was actually a Diaclone figure complementing the likes of Devastator.

Re: YouTube and the FTC COPPA Act

It was fun while it lasted... Can't say that I've kept up with it, but this in combination with letting companies copy-strike anything they want and also getting to be their own arbitrators on appeal makes it seem like more trouble than it's worth to make videos about any sort of media.
