The Action Pose Thread


Recommended Posts

I really like the "Tag Team" picture, Ebonsaber. Hound and Warpath are two of my favorite classics molds. The designers did a fantastic job recreating them. You even managed to get a good lighting angle so Hound's lightpiping was working. Nice job!

Prime Soundwave sure keeps finding ways to endear himself to me. :tflaugh


When I first bought him a while back, he quickly made friends:




and kept those smaller from harm: (I suspect Soundwave will kill me in my sleep for this photo.)




and then, after this struggle with Prime: (which proves he's not much a rock n roll fella,but he gets the picture done. Such a good sport.)



Soundwave proves, he was made to rock.

I think that it also comes in the traditional Iron Man colors as well.


Overall, the Captain America mech suit is pretty nice... it fits a standard figure inside, and the articulation is average - neck swivels, shoulders, elbows, and wrists all turn. The legs move at the hips, and the ankles pivot, but the fact that it's a mech suit limits the legs a bit. For example, there are no knees.


It comes with tons of interchangeable missile pods and guns, but it was also a bit light on the paint details. I had to paint the eyes and the gatling gun muzzle red, and the belt buckle and hand repulsers yellow. They are minor details, but it helps. I also added the "shield" on his back from the Captain America Transformer Crossover, and I used the Iron Patriot figure instead of the standard Captain America that it came with.


Here is a few more shots after the paint apps:

    • Just up on Amazon are more listings for the Takara Tomy Legacy Evolution series. Here we have the new official images for the TL-27 Dinobot Slug, TL-28 Dinobot Sludge, and TL-29 Soundblaster Core Class figures. - Read the Full News Story
    • Just out on the SNS by way of Zavvi we have what appears to be some first looks at the Transformers Rise Of The Beasts Bumblebee action figure. The smallish shot shows the robot mode figure along with Battletrap, that we have seen already. If that is the voyager Battletrap, this looks like a new mold for Bumblebee, or possibly the Outback design - Not that I know them all that well. - Read the Full News Story
    • This is the largest custom I've done so far, introducing a Generations 'G1' style Metroplex that comes with a new DELUXE SCALE Scamper, Sixgun, and Slammer! This is a huge figure and comes with multiple new attachments such as shoulder antenna, G1 red double barrel gun, twin knee turrets, 3rd party heel turrets, twin arm turrets, antenna, satellite dish, spire, 3 extra ramps, (one folding chest c-tainer ramp, two leg ramps) and of course his three bots. Metroplex transforms into a city mode and battle-carrier mode. City mode features a clip-on chest ramp that folds down and extends further and a clip on tower building-top to hide his hand. You can put the shoulder antenna, double guns, and other cannons just about anwyhere and there are two new 5mm ports located on his back for added placement. The small Optimus Prime is actually a magnetic 'key' that activates the eye and target lights! These magnetron LED units function separatly from the electronic light and sound which still work when you press his chest. Touch Prime to the top of Metro's head and the eyes turn on, touch again and they turn off! Metroplex features a TON of paint work and Toyhax's label set. There's all sorts of blue windows, metallic sections, hubcaps, tiny yellow shoulder windows, decals (like the MasterMade 3rd party vers) and I think it's a good cross between the Takara and Hasbro Metro in my opinion. He has the 3rd party heel turrets which help him stand and unfold into standing or placement turrets. They don't really attach to anything but look cool sitting on top in battle carrier mode. Now for the bots! I created a deluxe scale Scamper that's also a headmaster! He has a removable roof gun and was created to look like the G1 version. Sixgun is basicsally the same as the retail version but has G1 colors, same with Slammer. Slammer's tower mode can be placed on the deck or my favorite way of display, fold Metro's left arm behind his back and plug Slammer's turret base into Metro's arm port. Sixgun can be disassembled for turret mode. I used Testors Aztek Airbrush, Metalizer, Tamiya lacquers (Tamiya spray Racing White is the color match for Metro's white) and Army painter washes followed by a sealer of Mr Hobby.  
    • For the ROYALTY! Legacy Inferno from Beast Wars is a fun figure. I appreciate the opening mouth which makes the figure more expressive. Transformation is rather simple and straightforward, but the ant legs can be a pain to move out of the way. This was worth the wait to complete the season one cast of the Beast Wars show.
