Now that I've gotten through Swoop and Slag, I'll be adding to my list after I finish Dreadwind:

Studio Series Starscream (for something a little different)
PotP Darkwing

Right, I've done Siege Hound. My plan is to tackle the whole first wave, so I'll do Ultra Magnus and then (in no particular order) Flywheels, Shockwave, Megatron, Cog, Optimus and the two Battlemasters and 3 sets of Micromasters.

That post up there reminds me I still need to do pictures for Cordon. But that means I'll have to transform him again *sets aside a full day*

Cor, that was fun. I liked writing about them there Siege toys. Because they've all largely been great.

Thought I'd dip back into the unloved world of The Last Knight, seeing as I picked up a bunch of figures on clearance last year and have things to say about them. So, I'll start with Berserker, Crosshairs, Drift, Bumblebee & Strafe.

I can't remember what or when I did a review last, so I'll give a shot at Earthrise Starscream.

I'm in the mood for some RID15, so let's start with Soundwave, then move onto Skywarp and Bludgeon

I've also reviewed RID Scorponok! Not sure what to do next. POTP Terrorcons, maybe...?

Change of plan (mainly because I haven't got anything out of storage), Hammerbyte's next!

Is there a need or want for 3rd party toy reviews? Over half of my collection consists of 3rd party, so I was wondering if I could be of service.

Third party reviews would be great! There's not a huge amount of 3P talk here but I think that's mostly because the sheer volume of it is a bit overwhelming for most of us fogeys. I know I'd like to see reviews just so I'd get a better idea of what's out there.

I'd like to see 3P reviews. Do you have multiple figures of the same character so you could do a compare/contrast?

I have a closet full of 3rd-party figures. Are there any requests?

And I totally missed those posts until SCSW quoted them because Photobucket is being finicky with displaying my pictures.

Oh yes! From most to least: Trailbreaker, Gears, Sunstreaker, Omega Supreme, Huffer, Ironhide, and Jazz.

Apologies for the double post, but just so I have a fun project to work on, would anyone object if started with Master Race SDT-03 Apollo? As Clay put it, he's the chonky, little Omega Supreme.

Sir, yes, sir. Weekend project, it is.

EDIT: Actually, let's get a priority list going here. After I do Chonky Supreme, what do people want me to review next. Please see the above photos and pick whatever is more than meets the eye.
